    I think they are right to air these things in the press conferences so as to get the media and fans talking about the issue and raise awareness.

    He looked like he was about to cry as well. While I have sympathy and agree that Hearn is a modern day F.agan but without the heart of gold, bleating on like this in the presser makes them look pathetic. She was crying? Why? A grown woman and a fighting woman too!

    Some of the greatest fighters of all time and some of the hardest men we’ve ever seen in the ring have broken down in tears at random moments. I don’t think it’s that much of a big deal for a woman to break down in tears after getting screwed in a contract against a fighter who was given a robbery decision in her last fight. The stacks are against her and she’s risking her health in the ring, not to mention she’s a woman. Who cares if she cries. Cohen was right to highlight the impact that it’s had on his fighter.

    People cry, get over it, you probably think you are some tough geezer but you'd cry like a ***** if you took one body shot from these girls

    That's not the point and no I'm not a tough guy, and no, you don't need to go on the attack over every comment that you disagree with. The point is that moaning and complaining in the presser after all said and done is tantamount to telling tales out of school. It is immature in the extreme. I saw Chisora's presser outburst too and that speaks volumes, as he's not grown up, regardless of his size.

    As much as hearn can be a nob.It's times like this that we have to remind ourselves that boxing is prizefighting it's not a sport in pure sense.
    There has been thousands of fighters who had the potential to be world champions but they never got past first base because they couldn't generate money. Having power in this game is equal to how much money you generate. Taylor with Hearn behind her generates money, that's how it is in this game. Its the blueprint. I don't like it anymore than anyone else but that is the format.

    It's the business.

    It is what it is.

    Johnston - Trump - Hearn. Not sure who’s more arrogant.

    Shame there’s no PPV clause - if it’s a disappointment and I feel like I’ve wasted £20, I get to ask for a refund.

    But it is Hearns arrogance, he is happy to talk to Kuuuugs roar about contracts. So fair game to fire a few arrows back at him.

    Hard to underestimate how much of a slimy **** Hearn is really

    I disagree.
    Moaning and complaining at the presser is good. This is how things get addressed. By bringing them to the public arena.

    I wish Cohen was smart and articulate enough to mention wanting a rematch clause using examples of the Persoon fight and the cuts in the Tyson Fury fight, meaning if it had been stopped Wallin would have won, hence needing a rematch clause.

    Missed opportunity to make Eddie look like a tit.

    The Chisora thing looked planned to me in order to get people talking. A few hundred RTs of a video clip and thousands of views = more PPV buys.
