    To be fair, they were both stories in the national press:

    Alexander was the ref in the Warrington-Selby fight. There was controversy when the Yorkshire referee stopped the fight in the sixth but the ringside doctor said Selby could carry on.

    Santa Cruz boxes Gervonta Davis a week today. The WBA might strip Santa Cruz of his featherweight title. If they hand it to a guy who has lost 2 out of 20 Warrington will be interested.

    Warrington without a crowd against Barry tying his arms up not letting him throw at will equals a bad night for him, a bit like ritson they thrive of the football crowd behind them.

    There are similarities with Ritson. Michael Alexander was one, but he had a nightmare against Barry with his crowd.
    He's had Barry on his mind for nearly 2 years now. If he thought he could beat him it's an ideal time to get his mandatory out of the way.

    Has the fight been offered tho. Haven't once heard hearn mention doing it. U keep saying if he thought he could beat him. He has 3 times. The mandatory will b put back if a unification fight is made. Regardless of how the other fighter
    gets the belt. He may have lost 2 but he will still b a world champ.

    Hearn hasn't mentioned Galahad because he knows he got robbed before. The IBF have given Warrington until the end of November to fight somebody else. The IBF would have to approve a unification which you would think they would. However, without crowds is the money there for a unification?

    Put back to summer 2021 when hopefully crowds are due back in. Wouldn't it make more sense to get his mandatory done now?
    Is there enough money to do a unification without crowds?

    He hasn't mentioned it because he doesn't want to pay for it. If he was so into the robbery claim he wud back kid and put the the fight on. Key fact is he hasn't. Let's b honest kid has never been a matchroom priority. He helped sell brooks shows in Sheffield. His only ever topped one matchroom show.
    Imo they will get josh a unification and should he win they will advise warrington to move up to b a 2 weight world champ leaving kid a vacant title shot on the undercard somewhere. Its Business. U will claim duck ill say check the record's

    Hearn knows Galahad beat him.
    Hearn thinks he can make more money from Warrington.
    Hearn doesn't mention putting Warrington in with Galahad.

    Kid should lobby his promoter, u know the same one who manages Josh. He has contractual obligations and I'm sure if he isn't fulfilling them then he could take him to court. Maybe kid isn't trying hard enough now that he won't be getting the same payday Frank payed him.
    Barry knows hes finished if he loses to Josh once again. And without the financial incentive, like he would of got had Josh still been with Frank, then maybe it isn't worth him lobbying his promoter hard to make the fight.
    Maybe kids thinking let Josh unify and move up a weight, cos I don't hear him pushing hard for this fight.
    You're trying harder than Barry, bent nose!

    Thats your opinion. He put a tweet out after the fight and then in a interview with all 3 said nothing. He doesn't mention it cause the fight doesn't make business sense to him and knows it won't sell as a ppv he knows a potential unification fight with a decent undercard cud b ppv. Kid brings nothing to table other than his mandatory position. If the fight had been a war like whyte chisora for example it wud of happened as it made good tv. but kid made it scrappy and that wud put off the casual fan.

    He hasn't got a promoter. His manager will be lobbying the IBF if Warrington tries to fight after November. The IBF state a champion should defend within 9 months and Warrington is already way over.
    Barry has trained constantly in case Hearn tried to slip him a short notice job. You're not even convincing yourself.
    Is your man on Strictly tonight? Oh no, it's Nicola Adams, the Leeds fighter who is more active and she's retired!
