Yes any of those would be a huge step in the right direction and opponents that would take my interest back.

so is barker on the froch undercard then?

rule out vanda, ayala, and kolle.

billy lyell would be good plus it gets barker a good chance at sylvester for the ibf as lyell just lost to him.

Hennessy would have to stick Barker in with Macklin/Pirog, Fury in with Chisora, Murray with any one of top quality hispanic lightweights..... Froch is already tied to Showtime for the next 2 (probably 3 or 4) fights - with the shite undercard served up in Nottingham it doesn't bode well. He'd need to get some of his lads on those bills wherever they are and hope for the best.

I'd be interested to hear how much money his fighters earn and what costs (if any) he deducts - because without even promoting small hall/regional shows I struggle to see how he gets any money through his company.
If they're on Showtime then most likely Barker, Fury et al will be in against American/American-based fighters. As Bodysnatcher says, they'll probably be on Shobox which focusses on prospects.

Would be nice to see some of our fighters get Stateside exposure, especially someone like Murray who has a really fan friendly style.-

I hope that he does the right thing to move himself along...

It would be good if he signed for someone else...

Can't wait for when Barker and Macklin get it on...I fancy Barker on pts...

Hennessy is a poor Promoter. This kids progression has been so slow. Plus he cant even get Froch on TV. ****ing Joke.

So, Barker might be fighting in the US and Tyson Fury definitly is...

Why can't Mick Hennessey just do the sensible thing, the thing that common sense dictates, and simply negoiate a deal with a "normal" channel??

I call it misplaced loyalty.
