    Michael Conlans Homecoming - great card overall
    Warrington - Selby - great main event
    Frampton Donaire - good fight
    Fury Seferi - trash
    Murray - Garcia - trash

    Okolie Chamberlain - trash
    Brook Rabchenko - trash
    Joshua Parker - boring trash
    Khan Lo Greco - trash
    Bellew Haye - trash
    Ritson / Josh Kelly - decent
    Whyte - Browne - decent

    So far Frank is winning for me. Seems like Frank is more about the fans. His cards seem to have more 50 / 50s, whereas Eddies undercards are basically NextCan shows.

    Even the confirmed fights Warren looks better:

    Frampton / Barnes / Fury >> Whyte / Chisora / Katie Taylor
    BJS v Andrade >> Khan vs Vargas

    Yes.

    Matchroom are putting on their worst shows in their brief history recently.

    Khan vs Whoever in Birmingham being an example.

    This was the moment EDDIE could have stepped up and put AJ in with Wilder.

    It would have made up for everything.

    But he chickened out.

    The reason hearn can't make the aj wilder fight is in another thread in the general, the rocky Marciano plane crash thread.

    Any idea of further rights for the back end of the year. Sounds like Warrington might be out twice this year. A belfast card for the likes of Jono Carroll. Fury against an actual name?

    I'm not overly impressed by eddies cards this yr. I give it to Frank by a nose.
    Matchroom have time left this yr to put some thrilling nights out there for us, let's see what they do.

    I wouldn’t have said browne vs whyte was decent. On paper yes but we ended up with a slow plodding shot to pieces browne getting sparked

    Neither have set the bar high tbh, I've probably enjoyed Warrens cards a bit more though. Frampton Donaire and Selby Warrington great nights.

    The undercard was decent tho, Ritson - Cardle was like Hagler Hearns for 2 rounds, and seeing Johnson spark Buglioni was great.

    Browne turned up overweight and not medically fit to fight. His performance was very poor due to both those reasons.

    I would say there isn't much in it but that Warrington-Selby has been the stand out fight. Hearn has put on some jokes like stringing out the Khan/Brook situation, but has also made some good fights on paper like Joshua-Parker and Okolie-Chamberlain, it isn't Hearn's fault if the fighters disappoint. I'll add that Flanagan-Hooker was very entertaining even if the main event was the biggest farce I've seen, and that Price-Povetkin was also good.
