being irish myself i think currently we have far superior boxers such as andy lee and john duddy but yet all the media hype in ireland is concentrated on dunne! i no both lee and duddy box mostly in the states but is that a good enough reason to focus more on a lesser boxer ie dunne !! ? anyway it just gets on my tits!!!

Hes from Dublin, Andy Lee is probaly gets as much coverage in Limerick and John Duddy the same in Derry.

No sorry mate, dont agree. Kenny Egan is getting all the publicity at the moment sure

Irish promoter Brian Peters has taken the unprecedented step of making public his written offer to Frank Maloney regarding the arrangement of a fight between Bernard Dunne and European super-bantamweight champion Rendall Munroe.

The two promoters have, of late, become embroiled in a bitter war of words over the proposed bout, with both men claiming that the other is 'scared' of making the fight happen.

Peters claimed on Sunday that Maloney had turned down a £60,000 offer to bring Munroe to Dublin, but less than 24 hours later Maloney said he had yet to receive any such offer.

Now Peters has put the ball back in Maloney's court by releasing his contract offer and also inviting the English promoter into a side bet of £40,000 on the outcome of the fight.

“Frank made his usual excuses about needing to see the offer in writing,” Peters said of Maloney's comments, which were made at a press conference in Dublin City University on Monday.

“That’s the whole reason why I went public on this, my last offer of £40,000 was ignored by Frank other than to mumble some excuse about not wanting to fight in Dublin.

“Obviously with Rendall fighting in Dublin next month [against Fabrizio Trotta on December 18] that no longer seems to be an issue so I’ve now increased the offer to £60,000 and we’re still getting excuses.

"I’m amazed, to be frank, as I was told by a few people that Rendall would jump at the chance to make some real money. He’s obviously either being held back or just doesn’t want to risk his title against Bernard.

“Anyway, just to make them put up or shut up I’ve put the offer in writing to him and I’ve also made that written offer public for everyone to see. Frank is still saying that Bernard is 'running scared' of Munroe so just to address that I’ve added a £40,000 side bet to the offer between myself and Frank over the outcome of the bout. When I win I'll be more than happy to donate that £40,000 to charity.

“If there are still more excuses after this then I think the public will be able to make up their own minds about just who’s ducking who. After all if it’s the easy fight they think it is then surely £60,000 for Munroe and £40,000 for Frank would be easy money for them particularly given that Munroe is currently earning a only a fraction of that per fight.”

Peters' offer is as follows:

Dear Mr. Maloney,
I refer to the above proposed bout. I am happy to offer Rendall Munroe in writing the sum of £60,000.00 for him to defend his European Super Bantamweight title against Bernard Dunne in Ireland.

I will additionally offer a side-bet of stg £40,000.00 on the outcome of this bout payable to a charity of my nomination.

Please come back to me as soon as possible in order that we might discuss and agree the terms and conditions of the fight such as dates, location, television etc.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
Brian Peters
Lets get it on :laugh:
