"With a bicep injury, you just never know if there’s going to be an additional injury if Alexander starts training too soon. I previously injured one of my biceps when I was doing curls and it took ages for the injury to heal right. "

Scott Gilfoid. Brilliant.

The only problem with that theory is that the fight card is still on with K9 now the main event and it's at the same venue.

Nope it plays right into it. Takes $1million of the table in purses but the card is still on Showtime and ticket sales wont have been affected.

Eddie Hearn is doing something he SHOULD be doing. Helping and making good fights. Considering the fighters he has at Matchroom, he SHOULD be making these fights? What do you want people to give him? A gold star for doing it?

I said the same about Ricky Burns, what do you want people to do? So Ricky makes a big fight at the weight, his first, doing something a fighter at that level SHOULD be doing, what do you want?

The fact is, Hearn aint made one top fight for Kell Brook, this is the first, what do you want me to do?

I don't like Eddie Hearn because of the way he comes across on camera. PR bombardment. Whether he is completely different in real life, I don't know. His Dad did his best to monopolize darts, and I don't like Sky Sports or anybody associated with it.

What do you want? Thanks.....here take more of my money Murdoch?
How would you have managed Kell Brook differently? You think that Devon Alexader will beat him with ease, but you would have matched Kell Brook more aggressivley?

You don't want promoters to promote the sport?

Lol talking about Murdoch you twat!!!

Any idea what will happen with UK tv coverage of this card now? Will it be on Boxnation because Boxnation have a deal with Goldenboy? Or will Sky still show it?

And as Rob says, without Devon and his purse. He doesn't sell outside of his hometown. Cornelius does. Between that less, the site/advertising fee, and the Showtime money, it'll probably break even or make a small profit.

This is one thing I don't miss in football, players get injured but the show goes on.
