    Might be in U.K for Taylor at least 2 fights: this mandatory lad and after this Lopez ( with fight in U.K ).
    Lopez, if he will beat Kamb, still will have bunch with belts and if he had told that he is big guy, maybe he will move up to 140 lbs and there is Taylor with bunch with belts.
    Unlike Crawford with 1 belt, Lopez with his bunch of belts might be more lucrative fight than Crawford for Taylor.

    It’s only more lucrative for Taylor in the US. Makes zero sense for Teo to come to the UK for that fight. Even more so with Taylor having a US promoter

    US promoter will prefer to have US star to win this one.
    At least on cards.

    He should KO Lopez out cold in first fight and most likely in rematch too and hope not get DQ loss in US.

    The first problem for eddie will be sums demanded by supposed Briedis opponents, only after this sums and clause demanded by Briedis or even Makabu.
    If as rumored in press Okolie while being beltless get 200-250k for fight with Glovacki, this sounds very realistic.
    When he now does have valuable WBO belt, he will ask more $$$$$$ for fights, not alone vs Briedis.
    Next confirmation might be that something mached with Durodola vs Briedis, too ~> 200000 for fight vs then beltless not well known Briedis.
    I'm sure that Okolie will start negotiations with eddie with sum higher than 500k GBP for fight vs Briedis even if he is sure to be a winner.
    He does knows that Dorticos had climbed in the ring vs Briedis for 7 digits purse. For sure also that with little doubt Glowacki get more for fight vs Briedis than he for fight vs Glowacki etc things.
    Briedis? He does knows that his opponents are asking a lot for fights at CW vs him and ofc due to this will attempt to hold up price and not likely easy to negotiate vs him about clauses too.
    There are a lot of other reason for this assumption that for some 250-300k GBP even Makabu will not fight vs Briedis, not alone Okolie.
    Briedis not likely will threat their position in WBO or WBC rankings and turn into their mandatory. Looks that he is damn money saving and will not rush to pay sanctioning fees to get ranked by WBO, WBC at CW.
    Little opportunity that he will be problem at CW in 2022 th and even if will be, only under IBF ranking most likely. There are WBA, WBO, WBC rankings and belts.

    I think if Briedis will be active in 2022 th, then at HW. Maybe will be retired.

    Ritson last night is part of my point. Most British fighters aren’t capable of stepping up. So even with added funds we only bring better fighters over to destroy our talent.
