First topic message reminder :

Vicious knockout......The kind of punch that ages a fighter and strips one of his confidence.... Groves has never been the same since Froch 2 for me....

Khan needs to take time off to regroup and rest and then needs a tune up or two to get the confidence back and to evaluate if he is still on his game.....Suicide to walk straight into Brook after yesterday....

As Brook is a stadium fight and we are in a May...Shoud be no time this year..

Let Brook get a bit more wear on him and mileage....

My advice no Brook till next year !!....Don't give him any freebies...You're the star no matter what Hearn says....Fight him on your terms....and when your ready..

Wait till next year !!

The bald guy from Bradford would be third man while boycott shows her what a good length in the corridor of uncertainty is all about.

it's the first time he's actually been knocked unconscious. he finished on his feet against garcia remember. he doesn't have a weak chin, he just seems to have an ordinary human chin, not a boxer's chin. which is unfortunate given his profession.

another year off would be worse for his career. he's rarely boxed over the last few years chasing mayweather. he needs to have a break, do ramadan an then get back into it.

brook possibly has the beating of khan, yes. But it's verging on embarrassing comparing their last 5 opponents. big fan of brook though, he has shades of calzaghe about him in the fact he's wasting prime years facing no one of note.

Khan has been a handy scapegoat to deflect attention away from their own pretty poor opposition. I wouldnt say Brook is getting a free ride though. Even Sky Sports were struggling with the cheerleading in his last fight. Matchroom so far have not done much to build his profile or secure fights over in the U.S where the vast majority of the big fights in the division are happening. They have gone down the route of keeping him in the U.K where they have their Sky deal and they can call all of the shots and keep most of the profits. The result for Brook is he has been sidelined pretty much and continues to be. Khan on the other hand has lots of options. He is far better connected in the division for many of the reasons Brook is not right now. Khan and Brook are not picking their opponents. Its being done for them. I would wager they would take on any opponent in the division if it was lined up for them. I get why people dont like Khan, but some of the narratives are off the charts.

You only have to listen to hearn's recent interview words to the effect of ... "we've spoken to x,y,z... the leading lights of the division... but some don't want to come to the uk and the others want stupid money to do so." .... before implying that only vargas was being reasonable.

The big names in the division want big money, and some don't want to travel to the uk... who'd have thought it. Maybe they've seen the judges cards at some of eddie's shows or the refs diving in for stoppages when the first punch lands.

This is where the Sky/Matchroom relationship isnt working out well for boxing fans (at least boxing fans who want better match ups). Its too easy ad profitable for Matchroom to simply put on average cards (and charge ppv for it in some cases). They get all the associated benefits of an exclusive deal with Sky with advertising, viewership, marketing, ppv etc without any real competition or repurcussion for low quality.

Its difficult to believe that when you can charge ppv for all Matchroom affairs like Brook v Gavin and Cleverly v Bellew or pay Charles Martin 5 million quid to travel and surrender a title that you cant land better fights. They can, but that involves sharing promotions, paying the fighters more, splitting revenue streams (less tickets to hand over to Stubhub!) etc which might work out well for the fans and the fighters but less profitable and more risky for Matchroom. What is the incentive when they can turn around and pick some IBF guy who will take the fight for peanuts because hes not going to get any better offers? or they can stoke a domestic rivalry and upgrade it to ppv because a few old reliables are added to the undercard? Sky will get behind it anyway, which ensures it will make them money.

The exclusive deal was supposed to be great for boxing fans in terms of breaking down barriers, delivering better fights but in a pretty short space of time its gone from ppv being used to secure fights like Froch v Kessler to basically just a make a fast buck scheme on fights like Brook v Gavin or Joshua v Whyte. The deal works out great for Matchroom, but those benefits are not really being passed to the boxing fans. Or at least the fans who would like to see better match ups and more regular good quality cards.

Martin was a loss leader....Get the garbage over here..take the title and make loads of money later with the belt..

Be three fights at least of milk before Josh fights a pulse...

He sells big...regardless....Hottest prospect in Boxing bar none.
