    It's defamation and if this gained any traction within this year he could actually sue Porky's corner for posting the video on his channel. There's a one year window to do it from when the original statement was made.

    I don't think many people care or watch porky's youtube channel so he's probably safe. Youtube only remove videos if something went through the court if it's concerning something like defamation of character. He could probably get the video removed for harassment and bullying but i doubt he's even watched it or cares.

    It's likely Coldwell doesn't care maybe because the allegations aren't true or won't ever be able to be verified anyway. Just a baseless accusation with no evidence. It would be a waste of money to try to make a statement and sue a nobody over some video hardly anyone has watched unless it actually affected his life and occupation.

    I mean if the person or persons accusing him of this were generally affected mentally they would attempt to seek help and make a statement to the police. I don't think they would just go on porky's corner looking to slander his name on a public platform.

    Coldwell shouldn't respond from a legal standpoint anyway. It would be dumb to throw attention to something which can't really be proven on a public platform like youtube or any social media platform.

    It's poor advice if someone told him to talk about the claims because it would make him look really bad in the process which would magnify the situation potentially putting his livelihood at risk even if it isn't true.

    The nature of the beast is if he was accused and the victim or victims took him to court then even if he was deemed innocent he may be cancelled and he might lose his credibility in the process where fighters wouldn't want his services.

    Porky doesn't strike me as someone who fully thinks something through before he does it. He may end up possibly having his channel shutdown and legal action taken against him if he keeps pursuing this.

    Edit- What they said can't be proved so nothing will likely come of this.

    Just saw the other bit about Coldwell's missus showing lads her fanny. So it's start off in Michael Jackson territory with the underpant wrestling, then you suddenly get a Fred and Rose West vibe when the other half also gets dropped in it. Blimey.

    I watched the weigh in on youtube and there were a few comments when Hopey Price was on the scales, like "Dave 'turn the heating up' Coldwell" and "if Dave is making you wrestle him in your underpants, give us a sign Hopey,. You can get help" and so on.

    Also a few comments on his twitter

    But yeah, I don't think this Porky bloke exactly has a wide audience so I doubt most people even know what these comments are relating to.

    Your post just reminded me of an allegation which was made about Jim Cornette's wife who was a wrestling promoter. It was about Cornette and his wife sexually assaulting wrestlers to help them get further in the business. A wrestler showed some evidence of her sending him her nudes and trying to goad him into having sex with her.

    It's not quite the same level as Coldwell if true, though.

    All sorts of dodgy stuff goes on behind the scenes. I'm surprised no one has tied this in with Barry Hearn being in Epstein's little black and this is why Coldwell gets to train so many matchroom fighters. All the pieces fit together haha.

    The thing about Coldwell’s missus at the time was indeed bizarre. And predatory behaviour from her if true.

    Porky's corner has just shy of 10,000 subscribers, it's not some bloke with 12 followers who isn't going to get noticed. Coldwell's last two interviews on YouTube are getting comments about underpant wrestling quicker than they can take them down. In any other sport this would be a scandal, but in boxing it'll probably be brushed under the carpet along with the fact Dom Ingle's gym has drug test failure after failure.

    A house full of naked 12 year olds I'll believe but I'm struggling to see the always smiling & engaging 5'2" **** former flyweight Penfold lookalike maliciously bullying adults.

    Terrible thing to be accused of.

    Have any of these actually reported this to the police?

    If yes, then it is no surprise that this video has been posted, they were probably told by the Police, nothing to see here and felt let down.

    But that does not mean the person in question is guilty and this place should not be judge jury etc and demanding answers...

    He does however need to respond to it, but in a private capacity.

    He’s probably waiting until further details are released as Porky claimed there will be “more to come”.

    Regarding the latter, on a different forum there was a thread from 5 years in which very similar allegations were made.

    Whether you like him or not you can’t just go round believing an accusation like that about him.

    Something this serious and horrific you’d like to hope it’s a load of bollocks.

    It felt like a fishing expedition to me. What they say isn't anything the cops would look at.

    But I got the impression they dangled that out to see if anything else would come to light after this was public
