Why is it taking so long to agree on a venue and a date?

PPV logistics, and if it's going to a Stadium, then football will probably be an issue as well.

Assuming by the hold up and delay that it may be somewhere other than the 02 then? Maybe the champions league has messed with the May 25th date

What is your source?

Unbeleivable that it has taken 4 pages of people taking this seriously before that question is asked. Look who the OP is FFS!

Some of you are just desperate for Eddie to fail. Not sure why he is the only decent promoter in the UK.

Even if it is true and it didn't come off one of the 20 dates, it's not like Hearn pulls the plug on the whole fight and that's that, they'll work out a solution and then it's back to business!

Pretty sure whenever there were PPV cards before it came out of W*rrens dates. We certainly never got extra shows.

Please stop blowing Eddie off, it's getting embarrassing.

Hearn has said on his twitter 100 times to disgruntled fans they can call the Matchroom office and speak to him.

I wonder if any of you guys have the balls.

01277 359900

The fact is a fight is only on when TV, the date and venue are all agreed. Kessler v Froch 2 will happen, however the announcement was premature. They should have waited until everything was signed and sealed.

Please seek help.

Soon you will be flying back from America just to sniff Eddie's dirty undies.

And by the same token Eddie is more than welcome to contact us on these very forums.

The date and venue are always announced.

The point is: if they can't agree on a venue and a date then the fight will not happen.

They should have agreed all this before making the announcement. Including television.
