Johnson wins this easily based on the line-up so far. Sosnowski and Meehan are shot, Dallas is just ****.

No way does glass-jawed fraud Wilder even dare to enter against guys who have actually boxed before

He's scheduled to fight the horribly shot Owen Beck 3 days after Prizefighter anyway.

Could be a pretty interesting one

Ok, the Prizefighter concept is starting to feel a bit stale, but with this many 'shot' big men, several of them visiting the last chance saloon it could be quite exciting!

Some of them are regulars at that watering hole.

I'm liking this though. Will definitely watch.

Yes mate, I think they probably have tankards with their names on behind the bar

asked Wilder how many journeyman is it gonna take before fight some decent guys, his answer, everyone wants to much money, ask my promoters.

Golden Boy isnt doing a good job, Olympic medalist, money for decent opponents shouldnt be an issue, hope he gets into Prizefighter.

I feel a bit sorry for him. From what I've seen he's got talent but his career's just being allowed to stagnate.

I think it could be a very good move if he came to this side of the pond and fought some of our heavys. Fairly **** fighters but who have a bit of recognition you know?

Or start fighting some has beens or something.

Fighting nobodies is pointless, no-one notices when you knockout someone no-one's ever heard of.

If Johnson is in it, I will not watch, what is Hearn thinking? He's boring as ****.

I think he's thinking that it gives the tournament a credible name, that over 3 rounds Johnson might be forced to be more aggressive, and that if anyone beats him in Prizefighter it'd be a good name to add to their CV.

Not being cheeky like as I see where you're coming from. I'm actually interested to see how he'd do in the Prizefighter format but I'm aware I'll be in the minority.
