HERBIE HIDE'S fine for brawling with Michael Bentt has been cut by the Boxing Board of Control. Hide was ordered to pay pounds 10,000 - the same as Bentt - but the fine was reduced to pounds 7,500 after it was argued that Bentt earned at least three times more than Hide from their World Boxing Organisation heavyweight title fight.
