Default Plans for Barker this summer.....

Over at the scene

Hearn wants to get Geale.... This is common knowledge. However, hes talking about contingency plans of keeping him busy, either on the Hull card or Haye bill. So, taking into account the fact that he wouldnt wanna jeapordize a Geale matchup, who can you see him fighting in the summer? I think Proksa deal could be thrashed out pretty quickly, and maybe Zbik would come over? Adama or Nielsen maybe? Fine line i guess, btwn fighting a worthy opponent and trying to keep fresh enough for a title fight you cant be sure is coming. Toughy....

I'd like him and Lee, it's not an easy fight but one if you have genuine world title ambitions you should be winning

Really? Does that mean his fight with Cunningham is off?

Provisionally Lee has accepted to fight Barker either on Hull card or Haye bill. Will depend on what route they want to take Barker though

Barker v Lee could main event a card no problem.

Why the **** is the undercard for Haye v Charr better than Froch v Kessler!

i expected barker to get tucked away on undercards after his last 2 efforts at topping the bill until he took a major fight.

lee i would class as a major fight and im surprised its not on its own bill unless sky and matchroom have lost complete faith in him for ticket sales and viewing figures.

Will the Haye fight be PPV? If so, it's understandable given the fact the main event is shit.
