    Haha of course he wants Yildrim to fight Smith to fight for the vacant WBC title. Please don't sanction that WBC.

    Yes! More tick overs for these two, exactly what the sport needs... Exactly what the sport deserves... Another tick over for two men who have spent most of their careers ticking over

    BJS has spent the last 3 years having tick over fights now. What a waste, as these were 3 of his last remaining prime years.

    The standard of fights Eddies producing since after lockdown is very poor! Maybe these fighters are asking for unrealistic amounts of money ? But but I am very disappointed with the majority of fights he is making at the moment.

    Tick over careers for both with the odd exception so nothing new to see here.

    Both wasting time, wasting their careers and heading towards a Kell Brook/Rocky Fielding legacy which is poor as both have showed better potential.

    Both in same circumstances with Covid 19 and careers going nowhere fast - why don't they grow a pair and fight each other in November?

    Only thing that makes sense would be to put Smith vs Yildrim and BJS vs Parker on the same card.

    Once they win announce the Canelo vs Smith fight for 3 of the belts in March. The winner has a lot more sway in the Plant and Canelo fights at that point

    People always used to ask what's the problem with boxers getting overpaid. Here it is. This is a joke sport. Can't think of another sport where the fans get shafted so often with minimal return.

    tick - tick - boom

    and the boom is the complete lack of interest in two hugely talented fighters having wasted their best years of their career having 'tick-over' fights.
    Both have been either incredibly poorly managed, advised or have no confidence themselves in their abilities and are wanting a nice payday loss to land in their laps.

    The majority of 'names' in boxing is just carrot dangling until the cash out.

    Hope Eddie has ordered a new bum carousel because the current one is getting very heavily used.

    And I'm sure Eddie will charge a Pay Per Van driver fee for watching Mundane Smith and Billy Joe Sinus' pointless "fights"
