    I barely watch IFL these days, what did Hearn say about it?

    Shannon had come a long way in life both personally and professionally so it's natural to feel disappointed after a contentious decision doesn't go your way. What I find absolutely pathetic is grown men taking pleasure in assassinating her character on an internet forum and mocking her for mental health. Well done lads.

    Is it so much different from white knighting for her?

    She’s a professional athlete whose entire career is from using her story. She is open to criticism just as much as another other boxer and I would say it’s all quite legitimate.

    It's a fine line between criticism and abuse.

    She is a faulty product. She’s a manufactured fighter not there because of her ability. And even with all that promotional backing she still couldn’t beat a part time fighter.

    I see two other posts that you’ve quoted that constitute as abused, so I won’t condone those. If that guy thinks she’s a spoilt arrogant ***** (which I don’t think seems an unreasonable assertion), is he not entitled to say so?

    He certainly doesn't ask cutting questions - just a load of prearranged bollocks.

    But that's rich as hell coming Eddie Hearn!

    Nobody is mocking mental health issues, NOBODY.

    I believe people are mocking/criticising her attitude, delusional and arrogant attitude.


    For example, I do the same with Dave Allen, he has mentioned mental health problems before, I NEVER mock that but I will say he shouldn't be on PPV cards, he is a very poor heavyweight, he gets special treatment from IFL..

    You get what I mean? he doesn't just get a pass because he mentions "depression" or "mental health".


    Abuse isn't acceptable, mocking mental health isn't acceptable, but if somebody wants to get themselves on camera, all over social media and accept and welcome praise then they should be able to accept criticism without hiding behind the words "mental health".

    I don’t really care if you think what I said was abuse, she had a boxing match and lost if she just shook hands and moved on no one would care at all. Thing is she hasn’t. Don’t rate the fact there’s going to be a rematch I just don’t get the point she wasn’t a long reigning world champion she was a nobody and still is I stand by that. Farrr more talented people get a fraction of the exposure she does and it rubs me up the wrong way how badly she’s taken the L despite everything being in her favour in that fight. She had weight advantage, ability to train full time and it was in her promotors back garden lol. Who’s arsed it’s probably only got so much attention cos there’s very little going on in the world of boxing

    She's in the public eye, of course people are going to discuss her and how we as boxing fans perceive her. No one is directly sending her abuse (If they are, it's bang out of order). It happens to every single fighter and is fully justified on a boxing forum. So put your coat of armour away Pow, there's no need for any shining knights here

    Basically ripped him a new one about how he said to Whyte how the reason he didnt ask for an interview after he got knocked out was because of how close they were

    Can see it from both sides, I’m not a fan of her at all but @pow means well & made some valid points. Nowt wrong with someone stepping outside the box for a moment and pointing out how we all sound if we’re being out of order. However, the lads are right Pow, she won’t shag you mate haha.

    Don't think anyone is mocking her mental health, although if that is a problem that I would suggest she packs it in as there will be more disappointments ahead , she is just not very good imo.
    Just watched her IFL interview and don't think she has done herself any favours AGAIN.
    She seems ****ier than ever although a little down in the dumps.
    A few little humble snippets from the interview, the ref made his mind up in round 1 who won the fight, the vast majority thought she won the fight clearly, Rachel celebrated like she had just won the lottery, she was cheated live on TV ....BUT don't be bitter be better !
    Therein lies the problem as far as I can see.
