I didn't know that Grant. Could you elaborate. But that reminded me of the guy,Tory MP, who was minister for Wales and when they sang it just opened and closed his mouth with nothing coming out. PRETENDED to know the words. And then they wonder why we think they're con men.
As for Tom,Ive liked him better as the years have gone on. Got up to sing on The Voice Saturday with hardly any accompaniment and sang well. Not bad for a near 80 year old.
Elaborate on what mate? There's not much more to say.

Ortiz for WBC after he just lost to wilder and pulev for ibf which he would have been shafted for 75/25 to pulev in Bulgaria. Wise move if you ask me.
He can sidestep the best fighters in the division all he wants but he'll be begging for those fights after AJ makes him his bitch again.

I don't think he will be begging anyone for anything. He's forged his own career out of absolutely nothing and should be applauded. He could have easily sat on his arse and waited for another Joshua fight but he hasn't at all. In fact he's the only person in the division telling Joshua not to mess him about as he's got his own career so won't sit waiting for him all day. Give me Whyte over someone like miller just praying for a pay day and a walk into the sunset.

Money doesn't last forever especially for a man that knows nothing else but to fight, he will have to work his way back up again and those will be the guys he has to fight.

I'm pretty certain he's made very good money so far in his career and he doesn't seem the type to blow it. I'm sure if he had to fight those guys and it made sense for him to he would. Nothing he's done so far suggests he's scared of anyone in the division. I think he will have a good career come the time he retires and not look back with any regrets. I doubt he's good enough for a world title but few are good enough for genuine world titles. At least he's making positive moves to earn a shot and that's all we can ask as fans. As I've said before, give me a contender that deserves a shot over Whyte. Someone that's gone and faced credible top level opponents.
