    id take that over the boxing over there. 5 mismatches then two adult babies for a main event. Shocking stuff.

    Seems the DAZN US employees are as neutral and well informed as their Sky counterparts.

    ROFL You'll be lucky George Canelo aint gonna take any chances. Maybe they'll make a fight between him & the returning Oscar

    Genuine question, google reckon DAZN has just under 1,000,000 subscribers in the US.

    What percentage of these are specifically down to Canello? Like how many subs have been on the back of Matchroom USA

    People in America will see he lost twice to Liam Smith, combined with the fact he hasnt beat anyone world class and base their opinion on that basis.

    Yeah, ignore Mannix, Mannix is a clueless idiot in my opinion, one of his latest comments was outrageous.

    Talking to Gareth A Davies about Whyte he said..

    “In his second fight after losing to Anthony Joshua he went up and fought Dave Allen, whos a solid guy that not many coming off a loss would face”


    Yeah, that's right, went UP AND FOUGHT DAVE ALLEN, this wasn't said years ago, it was said within the last 2 weeks. How this man has a job is amazing.

    English title is about his level, simply because not many good English Heavyweights even bother with it, they would prefer to go straight to British, Allen wouldn't win a British title.

    Yes. I think Williams has terrific ability, but its easy to see why so.eone who has seen little of him think he isnt world class, with the 2 Smith defeats. One big issue, i think mentally he wasnt strong enough in them fights, which leaves a big question mark over his head, for fighting top guys in division.

    Yes but that’s the whole point of DAZN’s strategy — they were willing to overpay by a ton the going rate to sign their big-name fighter in Canelo.

    They can’t then turn around and say, ‘Well that’s an awful lot of money.’ If you guarantee someone a certain payday per fight, you have to assess what’s realistic for you when you make that offer.

    COVID and all that
    All sports and events have suffered
