I was 12 when I made love for the first time, in Tropea, with a Roman girl who was 17 years old.

Fury and Joshua have agreed to a 2 fight deal

and already there's controversy because Fury personally thanked Daniel Kinahan for getting the fight done

(Kinahan isn't just the "K" in MTK Global, he's also arguably the biggest figure in Irish organized crime and lives to the UAE to avoid extradition)

Oh I know all about them, I live in Dublin and drove past the scene of one of their hits on one of the Hutch family about five minutes before it happened. I couldn't drive that way to work the next day because it was a crime scene. Mad poo poo. That six months where they were really going at it was insane.

I don't mean to be all hipster but I have kind of been waiting for the whole Daniel Kinahan-MTK story to break big in boxing circles since the hotel weigh-in shooting as well as when Katie Taylor's dad got shot. Top Rank, and by extension ESPN, are in pretty deep with the whole MTK apparatus so I'll be interested to see what happens on that end as well-most importantly-how it affects those actually in Ireland. And it's not just Tyson Fury, also Billy Joe Saunders and Michael Conlan are represented by MTK.

Ryan Garcia definitely has an inflated sense of worth due to his social media following (which doesn't translate to ticket sales/DAZN subscriptions on a 1:1 basis) but Oscar De La Hoya is a horrible promoter and when Canelo leaves him-which seems inevitable at this point and why Garcia is speaking up so much-he will be done in the business.

In general it’s not super common for promoter-fighter spats, no. But it sometimes happens and these two are the type to do it, they had a go of it last year too.

Has a promoter or coach ever come out of retirement to fight a protege?

I bet Michael Moorer could still threaten (in the ring I mean) a lot of folks, he keeps in shape and his role in the foreman mythological epic hides the fact that he was a really tough scrapper at light heavyweight, I think he had a rep in kronk's gym?

i hate that this is the first time i've heard of him but just watched some youtube and yeah dude was loving good. like floyd actually he didn't have heart stopping power but had enough in every punch in both hands to make you want to not get hit - which is all you need. i absolutely adore the way he throws his straight too. looks like a loving jab in its speed an efficiency.

Actual quality aside the "joke" about Wanheng is that he was able to amass a record fighting basically stiffs in Thailand in a very shallow division to begin with. The closest thing to a legit contender at his weightclass was the wonderfully named Knockout CP Freshmart and they never fought though I think remember seeing that they are friends which is part of the reason

Apparently TBE Five Star Chicken didn’t actually retire and is still fighting. But it’s a bit weird, seems like the WBC confirmed he’s still fighting so it kind of looks like a weird fighter/management dispute. Big day for the Menay team.

Says they won't try for knockouts so it's a "real" exhibition. Man, I dunno.

I absolutely would pay to see them put on a show, but I think they're going to end up hurting each other. If it was really an exhibition they could film it in any old gym, from lots of footage of them screwing around.
