Was just looking at upcoming shows and found this one from MTK in Abu Dhabi on Friday night with Andrew Selby listed to fight.


Also, the Tyson Fury fight has really sneaked up on me. Had no idea it was this weekend.

As if Fat Mick is still carrying on? I thought Ch5 would pack it in after loosing Hughie.
These are the fighters he has:

Alex Dilmaghani
Lenny Daws (last fought two-and-a-half years ago)
Thin Mick

It's laughable he still has a deal. Dennis Hobson, Steve Goodwin, Stefy Bull, Al Siesta etc. are all in a better position to put on an entertaining show.

Ponomarev likely getting iced when he faces a Russian prospect away from home on a Eye of the Tiger show https://boxrec.com/en/event/794373 - Ponomarev had some good wins on his resume ( Zewski, Claggett, Solomon ), after he left Abel & Top Rank his career has gone to shit though

5 boxers on that card are listed as residents of Dubai despite being from elsewhere, on only the 4th ever card in Dubai, cards which have all taken place this year. Looks like some investment is going on over there.

Kellie / Frank Maloney on Loose Women right now talking about mental health and being suicidal.

Missed the start, no idea what is going on, but she has just come out of a mental hospital in Portugal or something.

It's on in the background at my work. I am not at home watching it. Honest.

Daniel Kinahan, who runs MTK, is based over there these days. So expect plenty more shows in Dubai in the near future.
