    Most likely Chisora does proper choice.
    While he wasn't world champ, for me looks that he had earned more than Lopez and Loma, Rigo and Usyk together till today with fighting purses: Chisora had huge row with really well paid fights.

    Am I missing something with Hearn's stratagy? His UK stable is weak at the moment, if AJ and his new signings go with Sky. Matchroom will be a laughing stock. Who's going to pay £8 a month for Whyte, Taylor and Dave Allen?

    Some of those PPV Mugths will pay £7.99 a month for anything Eh day tells them is cracking value.

    So UK they have - Whyte, Okolie, Buasti, Galahad, C.Smith, L.Smith, Fowler, Benn, K. Taylor, A.Khan, Cordina, Warrington,Ryder, C. Richards, and prospects such as Cash, Price, Dacres, Wardley and Fisher.

    These are just some off the top of my head and that's easily better than Boxxer or Queensberry stables.


    Whilst foreign guys include having all Canelo fights with exception of a one off against Palnt maybe. Bivol, GGG, Haney, R.Garcia,, M.Garcia, Estrada, Andrade, Hrgovic, Parker and Madrimov.

    I can't see with their current UK stable how DAZN is a 'game changer' like Eddie says, if they want more subscriptions, surely they need a marquee British fighter like AJ. How many casuals want to stay up until 5am for US/Mexican fighters even if they are good fighters?

    Is it possible for AJ to do a deal with Sky and DAZN?

    Sky for U.K.

    DAZN for US


    So no exclusive deal but both have deals for different regions?

    Eh Day is all spin - the only thing that has changed is that he wants a £7.99 DAZN UK PPV sub for his UK cards which are certainly not Box Office. Jobs for all his cronies and half the production team simply not required.

    The only way to stop this garbage is to unsubscribe until he has a schedule worth the sub money.

    I hope 258 are putting together an exit strategy for Derek, otherwise he will shortly be entering Danny Williams territory.

    How many of those British fighters are actually under exclusive long term contracts with Matchroom though, and how many are just on a fight by fight deal, or failing that a short term contract with minimal commitment either side?

    That seems to be the key. If it's the latter for a lot of them, then what (in theory) prevents a competitor like Wasserman/Sky from signing them instead?
