One thing Kal shows is that Birmingham isn't a boxing city. He was the longest-reigning British world champion, had seven title fights and only one of them was here.

Think that's a little unfair Dave, Ok he won his title in Manchester but his first defence was at the NIA, after that i think he had to chase the cash, apart from a fight in Cardiff (Ishoda) his next 4 defences were all abroad, apart from one fight in Monte Carlo all the others were in states.
He fights at a weight that isn;t really one of the money making weights.
On his way up he fought 4 other times at NIA plus 1 in Wolverhampton.

Exactly - he couldn't get anything like the same money in his own city. Compare that with Rickie Hatton, say, or Josh Warrington.
