I hope they don’t fight again personally. First fight was woeful.
Don't know where you got that info from but it's incoorect
Didn't kid get around half a mill and josh 800 grand. As mandatory the split wud b 65% champ 35% challenger. I'm sure their fight was one of the first where ibf changed the purse % for a mandatory challenge.
Yeah, but I heard Warrington didn't get paid his full purse apparently...
Sometimes, boxers who are desperate for home advantage will make sacrifices.
Let’s be honest though, Warrington would have had home advantage in Sheffield as well.
The crowd would still have been even at least 80% Warrington in Sheffield.
Sometimes boxers will do anything for that advantage
Like take drugs
It's a shame Warrington didn't fight there, he might have got a bigger purse.
Kid obviously never sells a good amount of tickets. His always on the road on the undercard or support to brook. Other than josh what shows has he headlined. Maybe the jazza fight on channel 5. He certainly hasn't headlined a matchroom show in Sheffield.
Think that was banded about at the time the purse bids were in, the bids were high and I think that s lot of people just assumed that Frank had done a deal with Josh to secure the fight.
Maybe he did maybe he didn't I don't know. But I do know one thing for sure. Josh was well aware of the % split and there is no way he took less than kid.
If a fighter does a deal to get home advantage the % split is irrelevant.
In your first sentence you don't know but by your third you do.
Just in case you don't fully understand the English language mate, I'll reiterate what was said.
I don't know if Josh did a deal with Frank but if he did, the deal would not of included taken a smaller % than kid.
Surely that's easy enough for you.
wants no part of xu can
Geezer are you well?? Jesus Christ go and get a ride or something
Just watched Eddie Hearns latest IFL TV and Warringtons fight will be announced this week
