Default Which ****** fighters will move to match room by the end of 2012?

With all this dissatisfaction in the ****** stable, which fighters do you see leaving and namely joining up with Eddie Hearn by the end of the year?

There will be a few no doubt, my guess is...

Bellew
Degale
Fielding

And I can see alot of Frank's prospects leaving him, he has them fighting 3 times a year against journeymen...

Matchroom is just the flavour of the month.Froch is the only one who has had success in World Title fights t my knowledge
since Eddie has taken over.
This time next year it will be someone else.

I think Matchroom need a ticket seller in London so thats were Kevin Mitchell will come in. Also a ticket seller up in Scotland but i cant see Ricky Burns leaving ******. Bellew would be a smart move by Matchroom boxing is booming in Liverpool. I could imagine under Matchroom they could get a World Title fight for him at Goodison Park as the lad has the power and will be a big draw.
As for DeGale I just dont see him being a big draw on his own. I think Groves would be ideal as Matchroom long term replacement for Froch. The thing is there will be more than Matchroom looking for the better fighters that could be going. Wouldnt be shocked if Hattons or Maloney came in and poached a few fighters. Or Mick Hennessey if he can get more dates on C5.

As boxing fans, and fighters does that matter?
How many of his stable have fought for world title would be a better question?

FW's fighters have world titles, but normally hand picked easy routes, followed by home easy defences. Personally I think its brilliant that some promoters and fighters want more than the devalued ten a penny straps currently doing the rounds.

Boring world titles that FW was serving up is what had boxing on life support on Sky, Matchroom like it or not, have been an adrenalin shot in the arm. Hopefully ch5 and Box nation follow suit by getting promoters to make the fights the public wants to see, and stop protecting those 0's.

You can't knock a promoter for giving the fans what they want? That's just good business and frankly doing his job.

Really doesn't take a genius to promote the Walsh brothers, a missed opportunity.

This

We need well matched quality cards.The Froch show was a quality mainevent.The Brook-Jones fight is ok because it`s an eliminator but for value for money he needed to put on a top undercard and he has.I expect to be mainy going to Matchroom fights from now on.
