    I thought fans wanted to see fighters in fights they could lose?

    Fighters losing isn't what counts. People tune in to watch good fights and who wins or loses is irrelevant as long as the fights are good. Thats what people watching care about.

    Really? Weird? Errr maybe slightly irrational but not weird.

    Look, Hearn pulls all the strokes I really dislike especially with rematches, also the amount of nonsense he talks, I know he has to promote but don't insult my intelligence while robbing me..

    Just rob me and move away, Hearn can't help but tell us how every card is his greatest, every young fighter is a future superstar and it's just the endless crap he talks.

    Not even mentioning the shocking Matchroom scorecards Eddie justifies every other show.

    I have enough reasons..

    Well, nobody seemed to like this fight, including me. As far as I could tell, we all thought it was crappy.

    Kiko evidenced his dedication, showed he wasn't ready to be written off, came in great shape and used his experience to hang in there and find the fight-changing shot against the run of play.

    If weight was an issue, that was for Barry to take into account. Can't deduct credit from Martinez.

    He's just setting his stall out to try and justify a reason for having the inevitable rematch.

    Either that, or he's even more mentally frazzled than Joshua after seeing two more of his World champions get blitzed. :lol:

    And with the added hair around the top of that hole in his face gives him all the more excuse to talk like a can't at times.

    So why does he keep doing it? If he's been destroying himself to make 126, surely the best thing for him to do would be to move up to 130.

    That would be the common sense approach.

    Well, Hearn has two rematches to make..

    Harper won't do the rematch, no way, she isn't good enough and that was conclusive. Hearn will probably move her in a different direction, so he can stretch out her existence on DAZN.

    Galahad, probably, but if it is the weight then his punch resistance isn't going to improve much and Kiko can easily do that again so it might be an idea to move up and forget the rematch because back to back defeats are not a good look,

    No idea. Boxing history is littered with fighters who stayed too long at a particular weight and paid the price. It's nothing new for the Ingle gym either. Both Hamed and Brook boiled way down to make their respective weights. I'm amazed Hamed had such power given how badly he had to drain himself to make 9st.
