Box a lot

It’s funny what people can do with words. For example quigg saying he didn’t want to fight frampton for 12 months so they both have world titles and the fight would be worth more money becomes quigg said he was 12 months away from the fight. Very cleverly worded the whole article which is surprising coming from hatton

To be fair to quigg the grass has to be greener than the 0 fights he had in almost a year. Hatton couldn’t keep his end of the bargain that is obvious just because quigg didn’t want to be palmed off boxing in America at 5.30 in the afternoon in from of 5 people on a big undercard doesn’t make him stupid in my eyes.if I were him I would have done the exact same thing

I don`t like it when promoters go for the “look what I have done for you” stuff.

Promoters don`t promote boxers for an hourly wage, or out of love. They promote them because they hold their contract, and the value of that contract varies depending on the demand for that fighter.

Part of increasing that value is taking calculated risks in matchmaking, and the promoters idea of a calculated risk isn`t always the same as a guy who walks into the ring.

Not the sort of straight talk you’d ever hear from Frank Warren. I hope Hatton does well in the business. Quigg I could care less about…

Matchroom fighters are known to take risky hard fights that pay off the most, we’l see if that’s the case for Quigg, I doubt it.

sounds like he was being picky at good opportunity’s, oh well good luck to him,the Jackel Frampton would spark him out in a heartbeat anyhow.

Hatton has working, profitable bonds with one of the biggest names in boxing promotion–GBP. That’s important in sport in which there are only two major players at this time. Of course, Quiqq’s going with Matchroom doesn’t mean he still can’t get fights through partnerships with GBP but I think at the bottom of this move is Quigg’s belief that Hatton was taking money “away from him in some way.’ Too bad. For both Hatton and Quiqq.

This seems to be matchrooms ploy at the moment….. entice established boxers to you stable rather than find and develop new talent. I hope matchroom can live up to what they are promising to all these established fighters.

If half of it is true, he’ll bitterly regret having left Hatton. Scott acts like a guy who was champion for years and not like a hungry young fighter. Refusing to fight on 10 weeks notice at this level of his career is just ridiculous. Hatton seems to be a fair guy and involving big names like Schaefer and dlh as wittnesses speaks for him. I bet he’ll watch his career with interest.
