Ashamed of fighter

Charles Whittaker’s stance over the upcoming boxing event has really let him down.

He’s gone way down in my estimation.

Where else would tax payers’ money (our money) be given to a boxer?

Don’t get me wrong; I support the funding of our athletes.

But then for Whittaker to complain that it’s not enough is ridiculous.

We (the taxpayers) are paying him CI$40,000 a year. Then he makes money on his fights, ticket sales and prize money.

Who paid for his flights to Vegas do you think?

Who paid for him to fly to and to train in the Philippines do you think?

And he’s moaning?

That’s just biting the hand that feeds you.

I’ve been to four or five of his fights and enjoyed it, but I’ll keep my money in my pocket in future.

Charles Clifford has his faults, we all know that, but Charles. Whittaker is in the wrong here.

He should be ashamed of himself.
