      Lovely to see 2 boxers love and respect for each other and their sport. All today's trash talk has ruined the sport.

    They both seem like great men. Imagine having to beat the shit out of a good man. It must be tough. A lot easier to hit a real Nemesis.

    So gutted for Carl, was a fan of his since the amateur days. Still had a phenomenal career, earned a ton of money and has left a great legacy and a wonderful passionate fan base, not just in nothern Ireland, but all over the world. Go and enjoy your family Carl mate. Now your life will truly start 👏👏👏

    As you all know, the 11 year anniversary is coming up on the 23rd of next July. But we have some projects we must complete before then. Those targets are as follows;
    1) Even though songs like More than this, best song ever, etc, have hundreds of millions of views, it's still not what they deserve. We have decided to stream the song on July 22nd, the day before the 11 year anniversary to get the song to charts. Maybe we have to start streaming a little bit before hand, but still. We need to stream the song on every possible platform; TheXvid, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon music etc. If this is the same group if people who sold FNB stadium within a miniute, then why couldn't we be able to do this?
    2) This was planned a year ago, but this time we could easily do this. The second project is to stream drag me down, which as we can see is so close to 1 billion views, but story of my life isn't, so we will stream story of my life on July 18th (The last Sunday before the anniversary) and make the masterpiece number 1 on that day. I think non of the above are difficult tasks, but that's only if we spread the words. So kindly spread the words.
    Copy and paste this, guys, believe me we can do it! I know we kinda planned it last time and fell short, but we can do it if we try harder
    Guys July is approaching fast, we need to start invading all videos on the internet. Copy this on to your clipboard, and paste it onto all trending videos. Guys, seriously now, we have GOT to do this.
    Btw I realise this is kinda unrelated, but idc this has to happen ❤♥️💛💙🖤❤💚🧡

    He enjoyed working with Jamie Moore more, but maybe he needed the misery of working with the McGuigans to make him the fighter he was. No choice given the money issues.

    Carl is a great fighter I don't think he should retire I seen more of he out his family through a lot of sacrifice and hes feeling guilty about it .It is truly hard to have a good relationship with your family and them doing all the supporting especially boxers get bad attitudes and take it out accidently on the family while they're still forgiving him and standing by him . So he feels like he missed giving them the good guy that he really is . And if that young man wants to make it up to his family snd let it go at least for a while so he can try to make up some of the time he lost with them from training I know exactly the way he's feeling anc it might of been weighing on him in this fight . Congratulations Champ for putting on a good fight and for putting your relationship with your family first you are still a true warrior .
