    Looks like it’s coming by way of the WBSS next tournament.

    Eddie Hearn in his latest IFL interview says they’re both in the next tournament.

    Eubank - Groves and the anticipated Groves - Smith PPV numbers would have made it a success.

    I think they’ll target lightweight and have Campbell/Crolla etc in and Bantamweight with Burnett and Tete in as they know British PPV numbers will be high.

    I wonder if Sky or Boxnation will go for this. I think sky would if they had control of the undercard and was allowed a sort of match room semi promotion.

    Yeah he would mate but Taylor will be struggling to make 140 in a year or so imo.

    No chance Taylor making lightweight, he ain't done that since 2012 Olympics

    Tete's power is overrated, he'll get found out in the WBSS, it wouldn't shock me in the least if Narvaez beat him. Wow, he KO'd Butler, so what, is that supposed to be indicative of something? Same goes for his win over Villanueva and Kinoshita, Nery and Ancajas beat them both far easier.

    Good shout, I would love to see someone test Tete chin, he did get stopped at flyweight a while back. But it's getting past that reach which for the small guys is impossible without taking a dig. It wasn't the k.o of butler that impressed me it was the fact he won every round in that fight and butler would beat all of Burnett's opponents to date IMO. 50/50 fight

    Tete was a hype job packing some serious glass in his jaw. I knew all along he was overrated, he had 3 earlier losses to average fighters and one of those losses showed he had no chin. Plus he'd never beat anyone at all of note.

    Yet still his fanboys claimed Burnett was ducking him lol. Burnett and Donaire would have both smashed him to pieces!
