    Weird one but Frank has won the rights to Yvan Mendy v Denys Berinchyk :lol: will be on the undercard of Dubois on Nov 26.

    It will be a one-sided beatdown. Clearly protecting Hamzah Sheeraz too. Fair play to Denzel Bentley though, I hope he pulls off a shock.

    I hope it’s not the case, but it’s almost like Frank owes Bob Arum a favour, but refused to sacrifice Sheeraz, but said have Bentley instead.

    Bentley’s last 2 fights have been exciting and I’ve become a fan. Hope he is getting paid well.

    After the apocalypse devastates the earth only the cockroaches will survive, but wait, what's that emerging from the ashes? It's Frank Warren and he's managed to cobble together a broadcast deal and has signed a very promising young cockroach who has a big following and could definitely do things in the division which is really hotting up....

    A comment I saw on here once summed it up perfectly 'if Warren fell into the Thames he'd come out with a salmon in his gob'

    In unrelated news. Salmon sues man. Claims money he was offered to leap into gob has not been paid in full. Lengthy court case predicted.

    George Warren been interviewed a few times this week.

    Not seen much of him previously but seems quite decent.

    Frank has clearly been gradually handing over the running to George and Francis over the last year. I think they just wheel out the old man as the figurehead.

    Get the impression George is the main man. Just not seen him on camera once.

    Whereas last time Barry Hearn got wheeled out, he spouted out that "slavery" nonsense and never got used again :)

    The Warrens seem to have things worked out - they know what they're doing.

    Barry Hearn. whatever medication the old man is on. it clearly works as truth serum.

    "Eubank and Benn. I was like the slave master, honestly."

    "we don't want the Wilder fight yet, we want it a couple of years down the road"

    "now you see why AJ was right to turn down the 50 million!"

    Lol

    I think Frank somehow bought the rights directly, it wasn’t a purse bid unless I’m mistaken. I would guess he may have done it as a favour to K2 promotions for when they get down to business for a Fury or maybe Joyce fight down the road.

    Only fighter in the div he has remotely close would be Mark Chamberlain?
