I'll be in Ireland but hope some of you lads do meet up. You'll find Samie outside a Gregg's anyway  :)

What you should do is get drunk and start practicing the Deontay Wilder windmill finish.  ;D

Samie will be hanging around a kebab shop somewhere offering an open challenge for his Maltese title.

I'm not Liverpool based I'm afraid, and only in town for a couple of matches in December then straight back out again.  I will get knocked out in a pub car park somewhere in solidarity...

I dont think that's the reason.  Warrington v Frampton was never going to do big numbers regardless.  Frampton v Quigg did 240k ppv buys with all the sky hype behind it.  That fight will have its audience and Whyte v Chisora wont change it too much.

Whyte v Chisora was ideally would of been this weekend but the O2 wasn't available so it was next week or next year.  Next year doesnt work for Whyte who could possibly fight AJ in April.

Ridiculous that either event is PPV. I'm a big boxing fan and pay for a majority of PPVs but won't be buying either. Plenty of boxing fans will follow suit, and casuals won't be arsed so both events could tank.

Puroesu do you actually believe what you are saying because you are legit sounding like you're drinking the Matchroom koolaid

This move from Eddie is not a good look for boxing.

I wont be in the country but I would have watched the Whyte fight because of the first one. He clearly wants to kill off the competition and that's fair enough. I've done the same thing as head of a Nigerian community organisation when he had some wannabe rival organisation  trying to make noise. We put one of our events on the same date (deliberately) and they subsequently lost steam and fcuked off.

I have no issues with them being snide like that but trying to pretend it couldn't be helped is just insulting

I wouldn't be surprised if it was more to spite Frampton than Warrren. I've watched a video of Hearn talking about Frampton and saying 'he doesn't have to like me but I can make him so much money' when Frampton was a free agent. He went and signed with Warren as clearly Carl could not get past his dislike of Eddie

Pretty sure that Hearn and Warren have both done this to each other over the years. Definitely not the first time Matchroom has done it. Can't remember 2 PPVs at the same time though, but they're both domestic dust ups that shouldn't be PPVs anyway.

In other news, PBC have signed up with ITV, so this shit is only going to get worse.

He has a world title of sorts and Ginger fancies a handy extra weight class shiny thing.

Fielding's size and reach could pose early problems but Canelo is far too good and will surely break him down to a stoppage.

Easy win but YES ROCKY come one you can get something out of this even if it's the Smith v Abraham cash flow rematch.

Canelo coming of two straight losses and stepping up in weight, he is by no means invincible.

Absolutely brutal that

Every time he went down he looked over to his corner as if to say ‘why the fuck have you put me in with this bloke?’
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and that’s being very conservative. So that’s £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head that’s £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Have to respectfully disagree here. Rocky is 'The Champion' and champion should take on all comers. Rocky could get beaten by any person arpund that level for a hell of a lot less money than he did against Canelo

It was an embarrassing performance and he looked like a competition winner out there but he is now a millionaire

Irresponsible would be Brook v GGG though Brook got multi million payday for that

I agree with CB here. Rocky lucked into a "world title" by beat Zeuge, the Super Middleweight version of Charles Martin. He would probably have been beaten by anyone on the fringes of the top 10 for a fraction of what he got for his beating last night. He got a hiding but can recover and most importantly, if he is smart, he is set up financially for a very long time. When it is time for him to retire, he can do so knowing that he is one of the few boxers with a fat bank balance. Better to take one slapping now, than half a dozen when past your prime.

Not surprising. Did anyone really think he would fight Callum Smith?

I'd strongly back Callum via TKO if Canelo was foolish enough to fight him.

Rocky isn't world class but he isn't a bum, he knew he had no chance in there and a loss against Canelo is absolutely no shame for any fighter.


When all is said and done, when he's an old man, he will get to tell his grandkids that he headlined at Madison Square Garden against a potentially ATG fighter. And he got a nice few quid for doing it. Why would he NOT take such a fight? I reckon he's going to fight De Gale next year who is clearly on the slide and I wouldn't be surprised if it was a hell of a lot closer than people think.
