World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has signed a 5 fight co-promotional deal with Top Rank/ESPN worth £80m

Former WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders has moved up to 168 and will fight for the vacant WBO super middleweight title after Mexican Gilberto Ramirez moved up to 175 to chase a fight with Sergey Kovalev. Saunders will face Isufi at Wembley arena in April

I can understand him (Fury) going for the money but won't this make dealing with both Joshua's and Wilder's people more difficult? Different TV companies are notorious for not wanting to work with each other.

Interesting that Saunders is moving up. Does he find 160 difficult now? Or is he chasing the winner of Eubank/DeGale?

Rather complicated situation with the WBO. If you are the champion at any weight and you move up you immediately become mandatory at the weight above. 

Saunders and Warren didn’t like the purse split for Andrade vs Saunders. Saunders said he will return to 160 after this bout it’s just about becoming a two division champion. 

Golovkin is now the mandatory for Andrade, should GGG win that, Warren feels he can get a stadium fight between GGG and Saunders.
