Absolutely no loss whatsoever to the sport.

 

Can you imagine him going up against a Klitschko?

I'd fancy my chances against this idiot, Audrey has made millions aswell. Good look to the embarrassment boxing can become a good sport once again

He was poor wasn't he.

A very good amateur boxer, though, I'll give him that.

I'm not really a boxing afficionado, but didn't he step up a weight division on turning pro? Maybe he just couldn't hack the bigger weight division? Or more likely, the pros he faced were able to do their homework on him and pick his weaknesses, whereas the amateurs weren't able to do this so well?

 

Just a thought.

No; he was a heavyweight as an amateur, and there's no superheavyweight in professional boxing, so he couldn't have stepped up.

Thanks for that. I had forgotten what weight division he boxed in as an amateur.

The money in boot sole advertising is to good to turn his back on it seems.

It has the grim inevitability of an Emili Sandé guest appearance.

She'd probably win.

 

But that's unlikely to happen, it's not the NRL.

I hope it's all about the money, because if you take what he has said at face value, he is delusionary to almost tragic levels.
