    Not remotely likeable. His personality in this day and age will not do him any favours with the public. Needs a personality transplant.

    I have to disagree. I found that entertaining. Look forward to seeing him again.

    I think people will want to watch him in hope that he gets knocked out. Well that’s what I’ll be doing.

    Antics aside Whitaker looks immensely talented. Impressive debut and he will draw a lot of interest.

    The behaviour will calm down with time but now I guess he is just raising his profile

    Depends which audience you want to look at, the younger population will probably like him. He’ll probably do some Fortnite dances or something and they’ll love him. The boxing enthusiasts will ju at think he’s a tit with no class or decorum.

    Sky have struck gold getting Ben Whittaker. He will have fans and haters all watching him fight. Sky marketing team will be salivating over this dude.

    He can embrace the hate and play the heel as the fans who don't like him will still all be watching him fight.

    Aimed more at people in the crowd but never got why people dress up to watch people have a scrap.

    "People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis, you can't trust people" - Super Hans, Peep Show.

    Whittaker is a tit but I've no doubt he can box. It's probably better for the industry that people him get promoted rather than nice kid Soup Hatton or frankly, fellow tit Conor Benn. I'd probably more likely tune in to see a good but obnoxious boxer lose, than a useless obnoxious one being gifted a win.

    Good ol' tradition. I'm guilty of it myself I'll have you belief.
