Chaos at Matchroom and I'm loving it
He's kept it quiet, but word is that he had an offer from his old McDonalds drive-thru. They're short staffed and don't have anyone to take complicated orders out to folk waiting in the car park. They know Lawrence can use his Mr Tickle arms to send orders direct to cars so they've offered him time and a half and a free happy meal at the end of the shift.
I like Okolie but this is so funny an image I keep laughing. Please can someone draw this?!
I thought he was going to be hired by the Greater London School Disctrict to retrieve cricket balls that rolled down sewers.
I could be wrong.
If he sold 3000 tickets would he not have received the money off the people he sold them to?
He had to settle every week with the promoter, who was constantly pushing for him to sell tickets. The promoter continuously received the money for the tickets he, friends and acquaintances sold.
The promoter maintained afterwards that he had only sold 1000 tickets. The boxer was subsequently contacted by unpleasant people who told him to forget it and do nothing if he and his family wanted to be alive.
Boxingpromoters are Godfather types. Bandits in suits. Sad.
I'm keen to hear what Okolie has to say
Despite a ton of awful fights, he has been afforded the luxury of headlining the 02 twice and gifted a world title
What has he got to complain about?
1000 tickets at £40 = £40,000.
You said he got paid for 1000 tickets but you also said he didn't get any payment. Sorry if I'm not following this.
Has the promoter been publicly linked to a cartel?
I never wrote that. Please read my post again.
The boxer was cheated by the promoter and it happens all the time.
So he gave the promoter the money for 3000 tickets (at £30 each that would be £90,000) and didn't receive "any payment"?
What did his manager and trainer get paid?
Did he have a contract for the fight?
Did he contact the BBofC?
