Don't agree with taking the Bradley fight but I understand your point. I think they could have gor Paulie Mallignaggi over to the UK.
Hearn hasnt taken the same route with every fighter though. Barker, McCloskey & Rees tool hard fights when they were close to mandatory shots.
With Brook they are trying to build a superstar. They needed a marquee win and Alexander was that.
