    Problem is Liam Willians will be underdog v Andrade and rightly so. Arthur and Parker are British level and be shocked if either ever becomes world class. So as far as big headliners are concerned they are struggling big time imo.

    I actually prefer Frank’s cards to Hearn’s at the moment. Who is the Queensbury matchmaker currently?

    The short answer to the original question- is yes.

    We desperately need another promoter to step up in the next few years and eventually get to a place where they can fufill the slots on a BT contract.

    Frank’s clinging on like a dried out turd and probably has the BT contract because there’s no viable alternative yet, which is a detriment to boxers, and fans, as it gives Hearn/Sky the monopoly.

    I must be psychic.... If they get this going they could take Franks deal off of him soon enough

    Sorry....
    Willy Hutchinson vs Lennox Clark
    Nathan Gorman vs Pavel Sour
    Louie Lynn vs Sebastien Perez
    Mark Chamberlin vs Jordan Ellison

    You prefer those cards? Atleast the Hearn show have something worth watching on them. Frank has only really put on 3 or 4 top level fights over the last 12 months. Such as Dubois vs Joyce, Arthur vs Yarde. Hearn has more or less had one every card.

    I'm sure Queensberry announced a new 4 man matchmaking team the other month.

    Of course they are not. Only a moron would think so.

    Queensberry are the second biggest promoters in the Europe. They sign about six fighters a week.

    Hutchinson/Clarke not worth watching?

    Theres a difference between worth watching and it being a better card than Hearn's.

    One fight that was worth a watch with neither guy being promoted or having any kind of casual interest

    I'm just going off you saying at least Hearn's shows have something worth watching.

    I mean they’re in a better situation now than they were in the Boxnation days, though their roster is far weaker now.

    Warren should be happy that he’s still in business but it’s very evident that he struggles to accept that Matchroom is in another stratosphere to them now.

    MTK looks to be the future with that huge stable including World Champions.

    Fair enough. A fight of the level of Mckinson vs Kongo as main event. But if you enjoy that’s to you discretion.

    It does but I wonder until they have a brand change and drop all links with Kinahan. There is too much riding on it from broadcasters to be linked with Kinahan and MTK which will always hold them back
