    it’s quite funny, he’s mastered the art of passive aggressive backhanded compliments, like a woman congratulating her frenemy

    Because some people will be interested in both and have to choose which one to watch. Like with May 27 when there are 3 shows on the same date.

    Watch one live, watch the other the next day. Not rocket science in this day and age.

    Which is why I mentioned the dates were clashing…

    If you seen how big Smith was at the weight in there was no chance he was making the June date.

    Hearn said they were planning on Benn fighting in June but “other options” became available. Maybe he is talking about Chris Eubank Jr?

    I never remember fighters pulling out injured all the time back in the day

    Eubank Jr has been through the mill

    The boxing world breathes a sigh of relief.

    Time for Beefy to crack on for a real test and challenge for a World Title.

    He didn’t deserve the rematch anyway. The only reason there was a clause in the first place is because of his surname. Even a points loss there should have been no official reason for one, never mind being flattened early, and chicken danicing everywhere the way he was. So yes, not really.

    Fight should be on as Sky have announced the new date, but Sauerland said last week that it hasn’t been finalised yet or something like that. I think it’ll happen on July 1 but seems a bit bizarre.

    Shalom started off really well to be fair. He got Khan Brook made in February 2022 and also had Eubank Williams and Taylor Catterall in about 4 weeks.

    He mentioned the injury report hadn't been shared yet and had never seen a situation like it
