    Haney has an excuse he is still early 20s.

    Saunders thinks he's big time and this is the most exposure he has ever got lol.

    Another point why the extra exposure is nonsense. Look on social media, there isn't this sudden influx of YouTube fight fans commenting on sky sports boxing or boxing news sites.

    A fool and his money are easily parted....

    BJS will be 'fighting' a bum (i havent even bothered to see which bum)so what is the point in watching that ,Likewise for Haney i think he fought about 2 weeks ago !!!!

    the whole thing is a joke

    Hearn “We’re tracking 1.5 million buys + worldwide at the minute, it’s going to be DAZN’s biggest subscription driver to date and we expect to do 3/400+ buys in the UK. If 5-20% of them then go on to be hardcore boxing fans.... blah blah blah”.

    It's complete nonsense. They may sign up to DAZN but they will soon cancel it, until the next one. The fact is these fans don't seem to be engaging on the boxing platforms i have seen and it's fight week!

    I will guarentee if they watch BJS it will be with a live feed of some weird YouTuber taking the **** out of him.

    They should have got Saunders and Haney invading YouTube channels, drumming up interest in them. Instead I bet these fans still don't have a clue what they look like. Sounds like they were more annoyed that the card isn't filled with YouTube fights.

    That would have been a great idea

    Why wasn't Billy Joe on the Geordie podcast lol, FFS Eddie isn't fighting???

    Why wasn't Billy Joe training Logan Paul, then they could clip to KSI getting trained by Young Christopher?

    Just youtubed Billy Joe and he doesn't appear to be on the mouths of any of these Youtuber podcasts???

    In theory having them on this undercard could have been pretty good exposure but it his the feel of just another tick over fight.

    Billy Joe and Eddie have both hinted that the money has already been agreed in his contract lol.
    The fights just have to get signed!

    Billy could fight any bum and he will get the same purse as if he was fighting Canelo lol

    Strange sort of a contract tbh, I am sure it isn't as simple as Billy made it out but who is going to be better off for it?

    “I reckon they’d beat 5-10% of current professionals”

    Eddie Hearn regarding KSI & Logan Paul.

    To be fair there are some god awful 'pro' boxers. 5% might not be crazy but they will definatley be down there with the worst 5%.

    Technically they now are pro's, go on Eddie, throw them in on some DAZN/Matchroom undercards!

    This is Freddie Flintoff v Freddie Flintoff.

    Would have watched it down by the river but certainly not bothering at silly time.
