    After hearing that Frampton doesn't pay MTK any fees for their managerial role in his career, it makes you wonder how bad Barry actually is. Of course it looks like one man is ripping you off when another provides the same service for free.

    It also makes you wonder how MTK are a sustainable boxing business if they're not even charging certain fighters fees. Looks more like they're laundering drug money.

    The funny thing is it was Jimmy Saville that introduced the two of them!

    Amd they have just paid £200k to stage a fight between Dickens and Galahad with no TV deal and no crowds. Essentially blowing a quarter of a million quid on a show with no revenue and no one is asking where the funding is coming from

    You just did. Which is precisely why we need free speech. It works.

    When you consider ,according to Wikipedia , the MTK Golden Contract tournament apparently is supposed to secure the winner a 2 year contract with 5 fights with a guaranteed 6 figure purse for each of those fights !!! Again sounds brilliant for the fighters concerned and makes you wonder if MTK are a charitable organisation? Even if we take the worst estimate of what constitutes 6 figures and assume £100,000 that for fights outside of serious titles is a very decent purse and particularly during current COVID 19 restrictions difficult for an ordinary promotion to balance the books. If a World title fight where I assume it’s a 50:50 split is worth around $200K which at exchange rates is approximately £146,200 , Jazza is going to need a top up.Next question who can O’Hara Davis, another winner, fight to earn those purses ?

    More criminals working at the BBC than MTK, and that is fact.

    Apparently now someone threatened bbc staff who made the programme...or so we"re told...turns out the threat is "unspecified" and no one knows who did it! There wasnt a complainant....but the Irish police claim it exists...

    At my age I’ve learnt to believe nothing on any media platform . They are all agenda driven

    "Media" used to mean mediator of the news ......their job was simply to supposedly report the facts to citizens...

    Its nothing new but western media in 2021 is manipulated and biased disinfirmation and propoganda of the agenda of both the far left and far right and totalitarian governments and woke movements
