    Hearn: “The IBF went down the rankings for Beterbiev's mandatory and everybody said no. Then the new rankings came out and because Johnson beat Buglioni, he was the one guy that they hadn't asked, so they asked him and he took it straight away."

    Does Johnson have a chance?

    I'd like to see Johnson win, but I don't see it happening. If they go to war, Beterbiev is just too big and strong, if not, Johnson will spend most of the fight trying to survive.

    He has a chance, albeit an outside chance. I think it's also called a puncher's chance....

    Beterbiev gets ring rust because no one dares to fight him.
    Johnson has guts to step in with him, but I don't think he will win.
    Beterbiev is a mountain step after Buglioni.

    Hearn also said he won't let Johnson fight him unless the money makes sense.

    Beterbiev trains regularly. He might not be sparring every day but his fighting fitness is very good.

    Makes sense! Beterbiev is an animal, albeit a rusty one. Very high risk fight, but also high return one - if Callum wins, he gets a title and a shot at everyone else at LHW. His chances are slim, though not really non-existent, so the downside cushion should be at least a bit comfortable. Still, I go with a Beterbeast KO.

    Johnson is a dark horse after dealing with a couple of injuries over the last years. We all don't know what he is capable of but Beterbiev is two or three classes above everything he fought in the past.

    By the way the poll is a bit incomplete. I don't think Johnson has a "real" chance, it's only a puncher's chance. But that's not exactly zero either.

    I am expecting a purse bid and hopefully Callum doesnt pull a Barrera and run like hell after he finds out that Artur isnt a cash cow lol

    And I'm very curious to see who will represent Beterbiev

    If Artur wins the lawsuit and becomes free agent ( wich isnt a gimme) Eddie Hearn should sign this beast for his American stable

    Arthur took an agent in the United States. The same agent of Georges St-Pierre. '' Nick Khan ''

    As manager right ?? Instead of Uncle Al.

    But what about a promoter ? They bid in case of an auction. I'm guessing Artur signs with Eye Of The Tiger and he'll fight on HBO

    I'm havent heard anything about that lawsuit. Did you hear/read anything ?

    Promoter ? i don't known.

    Next week, Arthur and Yvon Michel will see a judge for the lawsuit.

    Lamont Jones, who represents Al Haymon, argues that Artur Beterbiev is no longer their client.

    Thanks.

    So all will be clear next week. I hope Artur stays in QC. I think Hearn will keep him in Canada, Bob Arum not so much

    I get the slight feeling Beterbieber will turn into Warthog Lucas Browne
