    For this noble gesture. Edwards knows how hard it is to sell a ticket.

    Some will say that they could've just messaged privately, but I think the forum consensus is that this is the right thing to do. Tyson Fury has received nothing but abuse after donating his purse from the first Wilder bout to charity.

    That's true. Only a true cynic would suggest that Edwards has done this in self-interest. He seems like a remarkable fellow.

    I have never rooted for him but will be doing so from now on. I have just enough silvers saved up in my piggy bank to get to one of his shows. I had plans to spend it on a domestic heavyweight card next year but I think I will wait for a decent Edwards card sometime next year. He deserves it. Decent people deserve the support.

    I'm just shocked that Anthony Fowler didn't get in on this in some way

    And right before Christmas too.

    Lets face it, small hall shows like this are massive rip off and you're not owed a living or ticket sales just because you're boxer. I don't think it's unreasonable or unfair to say that these small promoters and entry level pros need to be a bit more realistic about their expectations.

    Charity done in public always has a squiggly next to it for me

    I know what you are saying particularly regarding Mega rich celebrity`s but the likes of Sunny and Frazer are hardly mega rich and are just doing their best to help out a fellow fighter.Big respect to them

    To be fair, Jimmy Doran is a decent prospect. He was brilliant in Pirates of the Caribbean.

    I was just saying to somebody here the other day about the prices of these events. Somebody near me, a big flat slob of a heavyweight with only a handful of fights, was trying to sell tickets at £120 and £220 (VIP). I was wondering if this is the status quo. It surprised me as you can pay to watch world class boxers for less.
