Some firm, Brook and his old man Cheesy



They got paid though Smiley

In that behind the scenes video Brook was admiring his weigh in selfies instead of re-hydrating. Bunch of jokers from start to finish.

Should keep him in bugle and can head back out to 'rife, so he can get stabbed when he starts punching drug dealers again.

how much would brook got for that last night?  £1m?  His career has been so badly managed (similar to Whyte) he has let Eddie use and abuse him as fillers for second rate cards/spots when EH was making more out of fighters who were no better than brook but they made him more money.

We've just been slagging off Brook's dad for the last dozen odd posts. It's him who mismanaged Kell's career. Frank hated him aswell, was happy to pan Brook off to Eddie.

*yeah up to $2mill's been bandied about.

Eddie bust his chops over the years buttering up Amir Khan, getting him ringside, planting seeds for the mega fight. Brook called him out all the time and Sky were desperate for it too. Down the line, after many negotiations, Eddie thought it'd all come to fruition, only for Brook's dad spite turned it down as his son wasn't quite getting a 50/50 split. That's by far the angriest I've ever seen Hearn.

A couple of weeks later they took the GGG fight for less money, but a bigger split

how brook/khan wasn't made either at their prime or past it is criminal.   At its prime its a way bigger fight than froch groves who made chunks listening to eddie.

Only got themselves to blame, as McG says.

Eddie had things set up for them all to print.

egos on both sides just stopped them printing money in the ring and outside for whoever won.   Groves wasn't fit to lace either of their boots but he got paid and was a relative guesser.  Kelll doesn't seem the smartest even for a boxer upstairs tbf.   He has made plenty if he has looked after it.   I hope he has.

Kell likes the colombian supplements, rather than Dom's. Find out if he's been sensible in a couple years time.

Maybe they'll both take the dough now, even though it'll likely be markedly less given how much time has passed.

Late 20's peak Brook was a magnificent flat track bully. People slept on his huge weight cut & re-hydrate. It's also an attribute which diminishes post 30 years old.

That window is a spot where I'd of confidently picked Brook. Ultimately Brook and more to gain in victory so I always lean more towards the onus being on his side to force matters.
Also Khan's name got him other opportunities like I'm a Celeb and that stupidly overpaid jolly in Jeddah.

It wasn't too far away from happening. It was good to go, and get announced in the ring, if Brook got by Errol Spence Jr.

Conor Benn hasn’t half improved since he appeared on the scene incapable of throwing a right hand properly.

He's a good kid. Appears to graft away behind the scenes and be down for a ruck with anyone.

Yeah, proper loves the game, and his old man seems to have gotten him well drilled on how to not go off the rails outside the ring.

Can see he's his father's son inside the ring, too Grin

I'm looking forward to Dubois v Joyce on Saturday.

Anyone have any strong views other than a Dubois win?

If I'm not here I'm probably hacking it round the back nine
