Now he gets knocked the f*ck out by Randal Bailey and will now most likely run to TMT with his tail tucked between his legs?
For those who don't know what happened, here's the article.
What do you think? Is this as bad as Vargas leaving Mayweather Promotions to join Top Rank?
They can't be compared. Jones wanting to leave his promoter when he has an existing contract is basically not really ethical, lacking a cordial agreement with the promoter to separate. if he's not happy, then he should fulfil his contact first, then leave. the alternative is to have any new promoter to come to terms and buy him out.
As for the guy leaving Mayweather "Promotions"... You'll notice I had the word in inverted commas. Mayweather promotions has never even had a licence and of course has never remotely promoted anything or anyone, except bull manure. Golden Balls has been doing Maywrather's "Promotions" for him, and the fighters have been paying the standard cut of whatever Golden Balls demands. Promtions Companies vary very little in their fee demands, they all do the same work, but some are better than others....So leaving Mayweather Productions to go to a top quality live promotions Co. was a very good choice.
