    The World Title Unification clash is all that matters at the O2 - hope Taylor comes through and wins.

    Chisora is a career pudding

    I believe that was for the first fight with Whyte. To be fair to Chisora I understand where he was coming from there because his purse was fixed and he was getting no share of the PPV revenue so he had nothing to gain from promoting the fight.

    It was a press conference he wasn't willing to do, surely that's in with the contract for the fight ?? I mean standard for everyone

    He’s a knob simple as and he’s got a bigger knob managing him so all in all a great team. Heard he’s now dumped penfold so true to form he’s an unloyal knob too who thinks everyone owes him cos he thinks he’s a star. Hearn should have said OK ur off the show and seen what reaction he got then! He’s a top level journeyman and great test for most but when he steps up he gets battered, hence can’t understand why he talks as if he’s world class PPV and disrespects all the other fighters on the same table as him! F him out of the game quick cos he’s rotten and not good for boxing and boxers who aren’t HW putting their neck on the line.

    Yeah it’s standard to appear, I believe it’s a contractual requirement. But then he doesn’t have to trash talk and promote it like Hearn would want him to.

    Chisora is a business man, all he cares about now is money.

    On the subject of Chisora the above (timestamped) is one of my favourite Chisora moments. After taking a hard first round being pinned on the ropes by Takam and absorbing big shots for 90 seconds he just stands up, soaks in the O2 crowd and just vows that he isn't go out like a punk to a French Frog in his hometown. Listen to the crowd.

    I'm slightly more interested in Parker-Chisora than Taylor-Prograis, to be honest.
    I don't consider 140 pounds a particularly prestigious division ("junior welter", "light welter", "super light"), it's an in-between divison and unless there's a Chavez-Taylor type match or a phenomenal fighter like Mayweather or Pacquiao passing through, it's hardly much to get excited by who's number 1 in the division. The fight is not even for the undisputed title at the weight.

    Parker and Chisora is a second-tier heavyweight fight at best. Maybe I give Parker too much credit for believing he's a "live" contender stil with some potential to go on and do things but Ruiz's win over AJ proves these guys can't be written off. And Chisora will come to fight and is capable of upsetting the odds maybe. It's an okay fight.

    Fights like that are why Chisora is so popular here despite not being the best heavyweight in the world.

    It would be interesting to know the purses and potential PPV add-on percentages. I’m guessing all are earning fairly well from this.

    Love him or loathe him, Hearn has done well by most of the fighters that box on his card. I can’t remember too many complaining about how they’ve been treated until now. I’m guessing this is a ploy to generate publicity, which seems to have worked. Parker must have earned a good few quid working on Hearn promoted cards!

    I assume the prize money for Prograis and Taylor was already set. The PPV upside will go to Chisora and Parker you’d imagine which is probably why we’ve seen those scenes.

    I like Del, only a few months back he outboxed a juiced up Whyte for 11 rounds.
