There are very few decent heavyweights that can pull a crowd. Hearn and co are running a little circus and making money is their main objective. Sport comes second.

At present there are more than there has been for about the last 20 years. In Britain alone we've got a handful of them.

Don't be so daft. No one in the heavyweight division sods about like that as one big punch and your career is taking a new path.

The hol conspiracy theorists have now moved on to sport...

It's only right and all....equality and all that.

The git has put her on the bill now. We're not interested Eddie, find some show in Ireland to stick her on - they claim to love her.

Needs either Khan or brook on the show to make it ppv worthy, tho not seen any news from either camps about any possible opponents and both more likely to top their own bills at the end of the year. Only shows matchroom have planned is Newcastle with Josh Kelly so it should be a pretty packed card but like someone else has said unless it's for a world title at the very least it shouldn't be ppv. Pretty sure the deal Hearn has with sky is to provide so many ppv shows a year and their stable ain't really too great at the moment so seems like any boxer your casual fan could name will be on ppv which is a joke.

That is not a bad shout actually, let's see if it happens.

I feel the same way.....though I know why he does it....he has a lot of cards to fill.

In the UK:
AJ, Whyte, Bellew, Fury

Elsewhere:
Wilder, Parker, Povetkin, Ortiz, Pulev, Miller

They can all pull a crowd.

Fury is miles away from a fight with anyone good. AJ only has one fight worth taking right now with Wilder. Whyte has to beat someone decent to get another shot at AJ. Wilder is not someone who can be manipulated by Hearn and others are far lesser fights than domestic grudge matches.
I thought it was odd that AJ carried Parker and now we have a very plausible explanation.

What is the answer to 99% or questions?

I stand by what I said.

Fury still looked rather fat at the weigh in.

I was surprised he was only 19st 10.

I am a good three inches shorter than Fury and weigh more than a stone less but I don't look anything like that fat.
I must have iron bones.

Tomorrow is pretty much a walkover, but I bet there is a crowd there to watch Fury.

AJ could take any fight he wants and sell it out.


Whyte should be fighting Wilder but the WBC and Wilder both do not want that, and he'll have a very good crowd for his fight with Parker.

Wilder will have to play ball soon enough or he'll keep getting a small piece of the pie in the Barclays centre, which he's only just recently stepped up to from fighting in Alabama. Hearn has just done an enormous US deal and is getting a lot of the best US fighters on board, albeit in other weight divisions for now.

Parker didn't want to end up on his back, end of. AJ could fight him at 70%, so he did.

You questioned whether the rest can pull a crowd, and they can.

In a world where the ex UEFA president says they fixed a World Cup draw, you doubt any shenanigans in boxing? OK.

Not when it comes to judging and/or home advantage I don't, but when it comes to an unbeaten world champion throwing a fight I do.

Do you really think Parker would agree to Hearn saying "AJ will go easy on you but you'll lose your world title and get to fight the likes of Whyte and Bellew afterwards, for much less than you've just earned" at a time when he's got a world title of his own and would have the world at his feet with victory?

Bonkers.

Was Wilder just pretending when Ortiz nearly cleaned him out in the last fight? Of course not, because a heavyweight fight can change in one punch. Was the WBC and his promoters cheating to buy him more time at the end of that round, you bet your arse they were!
