Decorated amateur. WSB experience. A "Sky Scholar". Now 9-0 (3KOs) as a pro without losing a round.

Makes me wonder why Hearn or Warren haven't signed him. He has boxed on a couple of Warrington undercards, but that's it. He is currently fighting on shows promoted by his dad...

What are your thoughts?

Have no idea, maybe they are pricing themselves too high? He should be with Warren and being built to follow Warrington along with Nicola Adams. Would’ve thought he could carry on selling at the Arena once Warrington goes to US?

Then again why didn’t Matchroom pick him up seeing as he was a Sky scholar?

And who went to the Olympics instead of him?

By watching this video looks like his family are loaded and are backing him, huge house & own training facilities.

Probably doesn't feel he needs a big promoter at the moment? Those shows can't be cheap to put on either....

I think it was Muhammad Ali who went to the Olympics instead.

Mainly because his dad Mark 'How Dare You Come To My Fucking Dinner Show Dressed Like That?' Bateson is a monumental cunt and it's impossible to do business with him.

You wouldn't think so, especially against a domestic rival. Which is why I'm confused at them bringing in an external boxer to sell tickets.

Unless this is Frank's attempt at courting Bateson? :conf
The latter is more likely I think.

If the former is true, hes fucked it more than I though possible :lol:
