Oh agreed mate, it's stupid when people talk shit to pro athletes, but fair criticism that is not condescending or insulting should be expected from anyone who makes a living off a profession that involves fame and being paid by public interest.

I don't knock Bellew at all, and the Makabu win was good...I think it was a bit mad to begin with how much people wrote off Bellew in that, and I said so before the fight.
Yeah. I'm not saying nobody here can't criticise fighters but I can't fuckin stand the boxing fan that tries to pick apart records and shit like that. At the end of the day Bellew won a British, Commenwealth, European and world title. Also fought for the undisputed champion in the division. This is a bloke who I thought wouldn't go beyond European level at best. I don't like him as a personality but you've got to respect his achievements.

Aye, that is pretty much exactly what I posted on the page 1, but you did it a bit more succinctly than me (which isn't hard :lol:).

Yeah and Paul Smith has a fucking point. Why the fuck should he or any fighter entertain or value the opinion of a bloke on the internet that disrespect's their career all while the same bloke has never had the bollocks to step inside a gym let alone fight. If you were a mechanic you wouldn't listen to somebody who knows nothing about cars telling you that you know nothing would you.
Paul Smith is a fat bitter prick.

Every world class fighter he has fought has beaten him.

Tweet is unavailable. Regardless, i’d like to take this opportunity to say “fuck Tony Bellew”.

One of the Tweets criticised the 'grass' who told authorities about David Beckham using his phone while driving, and another essentially said reality TV stars shouldn't get depression and it should only be reserved for soldiers.

Can't remember the other Tweet.
Tony will enjoy Twitter more when he realises you don't have to have an opinion on absolutely everything.

That said, he's lucky the hackers only tweeted the point of view that he usually does, on the sorts of subject that he usually does, in the tone that he usually does. They could have done far more damage.
