    Wilder/Breazeale on showtime PPV. Interesting to see how that does.

    Basically the owner of DAZN is brokering it and he’s been told to step back haha.

    Yes. I hope it humbles Eddie a little bit. Doesn't look good for him when people refuse to talk to him, and network people have to step in and get deals done.

    Anyway, I just hope the fight happens this year. It's an absolutely brilliant fight.

    If he fights Miller and Wilder this year then absolute credit to him. That would be brilliant.

    How far would u have to go back to find a fight that you’d be more hyped for than AJ/Wilder?

    This would be massive for boxing if these to meet. More or less a guaranteed knockout. Undisputed champion at the end of it as well. Wilder gets knocked out I think but not with much certainty

    On paper, it looks one of the best heavyweight matchups of all time. I can't see anything other than a shootout with one champion being brutally KO'd. An exciting prospect for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world that will be a great advertisement for the sport.

    Now, here's the spanner; I fancy Wilder in the fight. For me, he has a speed and one punch power advantage. AJ is the better boxer but I don't see these guys boxing. Once one power punch lands, they will both throw the kitchen sink at it and Wilder is so quick and powerful, I see him putting AJ to sleep.

    This HAS TO happen. Both sides will regret it if it falls through

    Now is the time

    More money than either could have dreamed of

    Allen v Browne comes close.

    I agree.

    Browne/Allen/Price is the gold standard

    Hearns has already got a cheeky narrative for the sky brains trust if it don’t get made...

    “Jon STRIPPER of the zone I call him koogs” *grin*

    I would love that. Hearn's reaction would be great.
