    That was the worst thing, as soon as they said it was a split decision i knew the lad was going to get screwed over.

    Just been reading about it, boxing does itself no favours with this type of thing. Continually happens in big fights.

    They should use VAR to assess the punches as the rounds go on, and award the victor about 5 minutes after the fight, rather than get it completely wrong.

    Wow! Using the same insult that Fury likes to use!!!! So original and you’re evidently not being played at all.

    If Dillian is not getting paid specially for attending the press conference then why should bother attending? Whyte’s got a fight to prepare for, so if he gets paid the same either way than he should rightly continue preparing for the fight as he sees fit. GHod forbid the tedium of the actual fight gets in the way of the cliched posturing for the camera.

    I do like Fury and have read his autobiography with vested interest as a sufferer of similar mental health conditions. His record is indisputable. But Tyson looked lost by himself at the presser no matter how he dressed it up, if anything it makes for a more interesting fight no matter how Warren may describe it up (I guess his supposed ire is part of the hype machine so is a win either way for him).

    He is doing it all on purpose because he is not getting paid for the promotion side of things. Without him the fight doesn’t happen and the money is not there to be made. Why promote the fight for the other side to make all of the money? Good move from him in all honesty.

    This conversation sums up so much of what’s wrong with boxing, sounds like an argument between teenagers being adjudicated by toddlers.

    Them having it out in public like this starts make me doubt whether the fight will actually happen. Maybe it’s a very meta publicity stunt, not like it’s news that lawyers and promoters can be clams.

    Ricky Hatton will return to the ring at the age of 43 for an exhibition bout with Marco Antonio Barrera.

    Britain's former two-weight world champion will take on Mexico's Barrera, 48, over eight rounds on 2 July in Manchester.

    Hatton retired in 2012, while Barrera, who was beaten by Amir Khan in 2009, last fought in 2011.

    "I can confirm my return to the ring," said Hatton. "It's not how you fall, it's how you rise..."

    Hatton was knocked out by Ukraine's Vyacheslav Senchenko in his final fight before retirement.

    He first said he had retired in 2009 after a knockout defeat by Manny Pacquiao.

    Hatton ended his career with 45 wins and three losses.

    I watched the Fury presser yesterday, was very respectful between the two excellent fighters
    and then Fury's bell-end of a Dad and Whyte's brother tried to kick off with each other, was ridiculous as you had the 2 fighters trying to calm things down

    Not all that often we agree on things but with you 100%, even Tyson seemed embarrassed by his Dad.

    I’m not a boxing expert by any stretch so don’t know all the up and comers, but for a fight of this magnitude the undercard looks rather disappointing.

    Should be a fantastic fight though, can’t wait!

    Seems like they spent all the money trying to win the rights to the main event and have nothing left for a good undercard.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Fury does go southpaw to negate Whyte’s left hook.

    Sounds like an awesome atmosphere, would fudging love to be there..I wonder if Joshua is sat somewhere watching this thinking it should’ve been him.
