his purse could well be witheld for only throwing one scoring punch
good. they both must have been in on it though, investigate the other lad as well.
don't think there's anyhting to investigate
he's not very good, and was out of his depth
Why? Anyone could have told them that was going to be a farce, if they wanted to have a real fight they shouldn't have let Fraudley anywhere near a ring :roll:
there are clear rules about "trying"
A-Farce just about sums it up (has been leveled at him before like)
I reckon if we could get a wire-tap we could uncover a great betting scandal here (just joking been watching you know what recently - not a bad idea though). Theres a decent amount of circumstancial evidence for a scam, just needs to be hardened up a bit.
why like? What the fuck were they expecting? If they wanted a competitive fight they should have left Harrison behind and selected a better opponent.
No scam. It suits Haye and the Klitschkos to spin out the showdown to see who's really the best for as long as possible. Haye needs an opponent in the meantime. Audley generates a bit of interest as an all-British fight, Haye gives an old mucker a payday. If he knocks him out in the opening round people will be furious, so he spins it out a bit. We wouldn't be talking about this if Audley thrown some punches but he didn't. Because he is shit and was probably bricking it that if he opened up to punch Haye would get him on the counter.
The rest is down to Haye's mouth working faster than his brain.
fellas there are strict rules in pro boxing to make sure the fighters put a show on for the crowd, that means the fighters have to at least try, which harrison didnt so his all or part of his purse will be kept
nowt to do with betting scams
didnt the ref even say to them to get a move on in the second round?
I hope he gets some of his purse held back, was a disgraceful "performance", even allowing for the fact that he's shite. Mind, what happens to the money that is kept back I'm not so sure- somehow I have a funny feeling it wont be filtered to the mugs who paid £15 to watch it, or those who attended. Hopefully it is put into grass roots boxing or something, rather than just meaning extra profit for the promoters
true, its meant to be a deterrant
Only found out he got £1m for that fight about 2 hours ago & still can't get my head round it.
I paid £16 for the fight and knew exactly what was going to happen, I wasnt forced to buy it.
you one of the lucky ones Haye texted to put money on for the 3rd round? Hope ye filled yer boots mate.
but if you ain't good enough, you ain't gonna get to make a move. Harrison doesn't deserve to share a ring with Haye. Stupid fight to organise in the first place. As much as I hate Harrison, the organisers can not turn around and kick up a fuss coz Harrison didn't fight back. :roll: Surely they weren't expecting anything else? Or were they as deluded as Harrison appeared to be?
I think a lot of people who dont really watch boxing have kind of got on the bandwagon and bought a ppv and educated themselves on Sky's hype. From the moment it was announced, any boxing fan will tell you that Haye was going to demolish him, the only thing was that Harrison lost his heart/mind more than expected.
Nobody forced anyone to go to the fight or buy the ppv.
Buster Douglas vs Evander Holyfield in 1990 was similar. Buster Douglas luckily caught Mike Tyson with a great shot and caused the biggest upset in heavyweight boxing possibly ever! However even Buster Douglas knew it was a fluke and literally worked out the best financial deal to fight Holyfield next, he then got knocked out and didnt stand a chance unless another 42-1 shot got lucky.
boxers are paid to get hurt at the end of the day, theyre in the pain business, if your not good enough you still need to get hurt, going out there to not get hurt gets you financially penalised end of
Seriously? I'd get the shit beaten out of me by David Haye for that!
