  • I thought that would happen. They can’t let him fight and then he wins by heavy ko or something and then Eubank immediately sues them for licensing him. Maybe see if Felix Cash or Connor Coyle is interested in fighting Eubank?? Eubank – Cash might actually be pretty decent.

    • My wife bought tickets to the Jays play off game that day so I was not going to see it live. So I was going to buy it and watch it later. On the positive note I will save a few bucks. I am pretty sure it was a PPV. Oh well will focus on the triple header in the evening provided TSN (the Canadian Network) picks it up.

    • What?!?!? How is a fighter going to sue anyone if he signs the contract?
      I don’t think you know what you are talking about. You sound dumb.

  • “….is prohibited as it is not in the interests of Boxing.”
    – How?
    – Why?

      • Bang bang and boom boom were to be headliners on the same card as Duran vs Moore.

        Kenny had trouble with the law, that landed him in the big house, which ultimately scrapped the fight and Duran became the main event.

        Later when Mancini lost to Bramble, that Bogner fight lost steam and never came to fruition.

        Would of been a war!

        Kenny didn’t have a stellar resume but he was a throwback fighter. He would fight anybody, anytime, at any place.

        He’s from a real tough city, Trenton NJ. He wore that on his back. He went to a predominately “black” high school at Trenton High and got tons of respect!

        Nobody messed with Bang Bang!!!

  • Kenny, don’t fret, my brother!

    We still have the triple header on showtime!

    Not the fight in question, but at least it’s something.

  • There is a big difference between ‘prohibiting’ a fight and saying it is ‘not in the interests of boxing’. So far, little criticism of Benn, who must be out of his mind to jeopardize this fight.

  • The BBBoC ain’t in the best interest of boxing. Get rid of these cancerous organizations right now!!!! This is the moment. These organizations are irrelevant. I don’t watch boxing according to what the BBBoC or any ABC organization says. They are all crooked, lying scumbags. Fuck all of them.
