    Easy fight to make. Is Eddie too scared to make it?
    Has Warrington retired?

    A rematch nobody wants to see, however If it has to happen, for Eddie it might be good timing to get it out of the way.

    He has both fighters.

    Warrington’s commercial value has been halved due to the virus as he cant pack an arena.

    Galahad has zero value.

    He pays them what he wants to as in this climate, realistically there will be no rival bidders.

    Just get it out of the way in an empty arena now.

    It would be an interesting rematch behind closed doors as Warrington feeds of the atmosphere whereas Galahad would probably benefit from a crowdless studio. I would be tempted to lean towards Galahad under these conditions.

    I tend to think they use the crowd influencing the cards argument as a cover for dodgy decisions with the real influence sitting in brown paper envelopes, but it has been interesting to watch these fights without a baying crowd and perhaps get a more neutral environment to assess the fighters on their merits.

    I'd also like to see what answers, if any, Josh and his team come up with fight. I thought he was lucky with the decision last time, not the worst robbery, but a case could've been made for it going the other way. If Warrington is top drawer, he should win a rematch handily, even if KG is a box of tricks.

    So if this fight is made I won't be complaining. Let's face it, it should prove competitive and there aren't that many fights like that to watch at present.

    Not true. Warrington=Galahad drew far bigger numbers than Warrington's last fight both in attendance and on TV.
    Surely the Leeds "Warrior" doesn't fancy another Soft Touch?

    I want to see it, Galahad win the first fight in my and alot of peoples opinions. He will be better for the experience of fighting a world class opponent in Warrington.

    I'm saying people want to see it. Warrington needs to take his mandatory and prove he's the best in Yorkshire.

    From the Sky magic money tree? Will they pay Warrington to sit in a pub in Leeds?

    The first fight was close. He’s earned his mandatory position back so the champ has to fight him at some point.

    I'd watch it, I think he's gone for the pickled onion (3/1 on Skybet).
