    Fair enough too I guess, if it's his best way of making money.

    So what's peoples opinions on George Arias v Cassius Chaney? Both are unlikely to make massive waves in the division but it's a real crossroads fight where the winner could see massive rewards come their way, and the loser becomes a gatekeeper for young prospects. Chaney doesn't have a great chin , but has a massive size advantage over Arias, who is a pretty low output puncher, and doesn't hit overly hard by HW standards either, but if he can get inside Chaney's jab and reach his mandible which he doesn't protect well, it could be a successful night for Arias, but I feel that if Chaney uses his size with good effect, both on the back foot and in the clinch, he'll come out tops.

    It's a lower level interesting fight for me, where I think Chaney comes out on top via UD.

    Interesting fight but I agree with you that Chaney will win

    In order for Foxtel / Main Event to sell PPVs, they're going to have to match Huni with live opposition. People won't fork out to watch him shoot fish in a barrel. He's not a ginger-haired Mexican.

    Goodall won't get a better chance than this to knock off Huni either. He's been over in America sparring with big names while Huni has been on the sidelines. I think it's pretty good risk / reward for Goodall. Foxtel / Main Event is likely putting up decent money to make it happen.

    The winner will collect IBF & WBO regional straps & have a top 15 world ranking with those organisations. Defend the belts half a dozen times & you have a guy who's in line for a world title shot. I don't think the loser is out the back door either. Plenty of time to rebuild.

    He has never been knock out, Alexander that is. Hrgovic is waiting for the dust to settle with Usyk and Fury. Usyk draws AJ next. Fury fights?

    Haha 2 fights in 5 months now for him! At least it now looks like he's changed promoters.

    Ustinov won't be much longer with us if he continues to take fights like these
