    What this avoids is "Troubled boxer Scott Fitzgerald needed money for an MRI scan, and the boxing brotherhood ignored him"

    If the lad goes off the rails again, it'd be too easy to blame others for not helping him. Then it becomes a he said/she said situation.

    Instead, a few high profile boxers offer publicly "I will pay for your MRI". Making it clear he can get the scan he feels he needs. Making it clear he has support, and that he has responsibility for the next steps.

    I'm very cynical about public displays of charity too. But there's times when people need to know a recipient has support, and imho this is one of them.

    I am surprised Tommy Coyle hasn't got involved on the charity offering. He is notorious for advertising his charity efforts

    You are though, Hearn & Steve Wood paid for him to go Tony Adams’ rehab gaff, sorted him out digs in London, all out of their own pocket.

    If Fitzgerald doesn’t grasp the magnitude of his issues, then how can anyone else sort that for him?
