    Watched the extended highlights of Warrington vs Frampton the other night. I'll have to watch the whole thing some time but hats off to Warrington. Not sure how many fights he can keep up that sort of pace for though, he must have expended tons of energy in that fight.

    If he can keep doing that there will be some big fights ahead of him, Selby and Frampton are already big wins in their own right, in succession too is impressive. He's had a great year.

    Fair enough, but making fights like Bellew vs Haye, Chisora vs Whyte PPV has meant other promoters have made every other fight ppv. Got me ppv should reserved for the very elite fights and not some made up british grudge fight

    If they're not on ppv they don't get made. You can't blame the promoters and you can't blame the boxers. Nor are SKY gonna pay 3 million quid to subsidise the fighters for a night of boxing. These fights are not going ahead paying the fighters a couple of hundred so it's ppv or very few decent fights.

    Yep. If you don't think the fight merits PPV it's quite simple - don't pay for it.

    Good to see Ireland's only male world champion sign with Matchroom. TJ Doheny @ Super Bantamweight won his world title out in Japan. Fights next Friday , Saturday morning in the Us on the Matchroom show. Get him and Katie Taylor back to Dublin for a big show soon. Good fighter and will have some good fights his way.

    I read that due to something linked to MTK Global there is low likelihood of any big boxing events in Dublin anytime soon

    Yeah, MTK have links to criminal gangs over here, Doheny is an MTK boxer as well so hard to see it happening.

    Seen Liam Smith signed for matchroom last night. Frank is already short of big names and struggling to fill his BT slots. He did a great job of helping get Liam two world title shots but I think its the right time to move now especially with a big money cash out fight against Kell on the cards.

    Either a sign that Hearn has given up on Khan or he's trying to give him a kick up the arse. Brook won't make half the money against Smith as he would Khan but I guess Brook is probably so pissed off with Khan that he won't be arsed.

    Edit: Also the timing is a bit awkward as Brook last fought in December and Smith is due to fight March 30th in Liverpool. Unless Brook has another tick over fight in the Spring then they fight late summer.

    Khan is going to get sparked by Crawford and even Eddie Hearn would struggle selling Brook Khan on the back of that especially after a pretty dull performances from Kell in december.

    Its a 3 fight deal so I imagine he will be having a euro/fringe level fight before anything big anyway. And I think it will be the same with Kell
