There isn't a single competitive fight on that undercard though. When Brook fought Jones, there was Hope/Proksa and Rees/Matthews on the bill, both of which were good fights. You'd have favoured Proksa and Rees to win but they weren't complete mismatches. On the Burns undercard, you have Cleverly fighting someone nobody has ever heard of, and Groves fighting a guy who lost to Lolenga Mock. These fights are terrible. All the other fights are against unknown opponents, which means they'll be more mismatches.

The Frank undercard has quantity but there isn't any quality outside of the main event. When Bellew fights Chilemba, there'll be Crolla/Matthews on the undercard, which is far better than anything on the Frank bill. It might not be for the WBO super-duper Euro diamond extravaganza title but at least you know it'll be a war.

Personally, I'd take close, competitive wars over good fighters beating the **** out of overmatched obscure opponents.
