    Yes. Hearn won the purse bid.
    Think Hearn took the gamble to try and grab the belt to throw in the mix for a potential Fowler fight.
    Belt ain’t with Matchroom in the first place and Hearn knows Cheeseman has a ceiling

    That’s what I thought but hearing it’s likely Jumah vs Billam Smith on that card.

    Had heard rumours that Rivas wants to stay at heavy with the new Bridgerweight and Merhy vs Lerena is likely for that belt with both moving out of WBA and Riakporhe was then waiting to be called for a final eliminator possibly against Mike Wilson to fight Goulamirian.

    hence why he was sitting tight. If he could nab the belt his advisors told him the Okolie fight becomes worth 10 x the purse offered for short notice in December.

    must hope he stays active in the meanwhile

    British 154 lbs divison is so competitive,

    Not many world beaters but lots of decent level (Euro to fringe world level guys) who can all beat each other on their day

    Fitzgerald, Fowler and Cheeseman can all win and lose to each other.
    I thought Fitzy lost to both but he did get the W's on paper
    Fowler fight was a coin toss imo, but Cheeseman beat him by a good few rounds but was still tight rounds.

    Conway, Metcalf, Donnelly, Pigford, Sheeraz all could be a similar level who knows yet

    Liam Smith & Kell Brook are in the division too but unlikely to ever fight any of them

    Cheeseman vs Metcalf will be good. Fowler was (and assume now is) due out on the Kelly card so hopefully that’s a decent opponent. I’d imagine Fitz will be out on one of the cards too with the plan to hype both for a summer rematch.

    I'm just hoping Josh Kelly comes through as I can't wait for Kelly-Benn.

    Glad that Povetkin is back in camp and look forward to the Whyte fight in March.

    Jordan Gill may be fighting for the European Title on the Josh Warrington Can Xu card (that fight is for the Ring Title too I believe).

    I think Courtenay might fight too, not sure whether it will be for a World Title or not.

    Should include the rescheduled Avanesyan-Kelly, along with Povetkin-Whyte 2 and Warrington-Xu. I'm not too sure on the other ones, but I'm sure we'll be seeing Cordina, Benn and Campbell Hatton out - perhaps even an Okolie world title headliner...
