    Spence v Mikey Garcia did over 40,000 a couple of years ago too.

    I don't know but that just shows how big Canelo is now..


    Unless you're suggesting all that inactivity and the shows at Copper Box finally paying off for BJS?

    Canelo v Smith had over 50,000 i think. This is going to beat that easily.

    How has Galahad v ****ens ended up on this?

    The Mexican crows won’t take too kindly to Barry’s style you’d imagine.

    Galahad is big mates with Saunders and Jazza is managed by Bellew so they’ve probably put a word in with Hearn. That and the fact a show headlined by Galahad would have about 200 viewers.

    Why are MTK winning purse bids then putting it on a Matchroom show? Matchroom clearly never thought the fight was worth the money in the first place. So are MTK just taking a loss on it? Unusual.

    They’ve already fought for a British Title. Eight years ago. On Channel 5. What on earth is Hearn/DAZN/MTK playing at apart from giving Galahad a relatively straightforward world title tilt?

    My guess is MTK won the purse bid to back their fighter as the other bids were low. They had no platform to put that fight on so would have used their negotiating position to get the fight on.

    they represent Saunders and would have possibly said we only sign off on the Canelo deal for him if you take the rights to ****ens vs Galahad as part of the deal. Would have been a sweetener my guess is MTK still take a loss on the show but as we know they don’t care about that

    Laundering £200k for a world championship fight with no crowd and showing it on YouTube maybe slightly too obvious so likely just sold the rights to Hearn at a loss

    If there's a boxing god, I hope this gets cancelled somehow.

    Whether it's a failed test, an injury, anything to deny BJ of that big payday seeing as he has sat out and ducked everyone for it.
