@jondealey The hardcores will never be happy and will always be blinkered when it comes to Matchroom and 'Fast car' Eddie but Eddie Hearn does often talk as much bo**ocks as the hardcores when he is in full swing but i guess thats his job, hes a promoter.
Yes it's purely financially motivated and I understand why you wouldn't want to watch it but I think that with a decent undercard it could easily be sold as a 'budget' PPV at around a tenner. All the preflight egos and malarkey will make it a sellable fight.
Unfortunately it turned out to be a contender for most boring fight of the year, Frampton v Rigondeaux should be much more exciting.
A great podcast. I knew the governing bodies, the number of belts and the ranking system was a bit dodgy but i never realised the politics and how much money is involved.
The second part of this podcast is very interesting and has really opened up my eyes to the slap dash manipulative way in which the governing bodies operate.
The first half of the podcast discussed journalism in the sport, this was pretty interesting as well.
