    Weird move

    I didn't think there would be much money in any fight within that division tbh

    Maybe using it as a stepping stone to HW

    The return of the Okoliepus is this the guy who battered Babic?

    He sucks so he is in a division that sucks. Makes a kind of sense.

    How are they going to make any money out of Okolipus at Bridger?

    Why is he even fighting at Bridger? Bridger is the biggest joke division in boxing.

    I bet Eddie is feeling more smug than normal right about now.

    Not sure how contracts work, but is this a way of Sky running down a fight in his deal without have to front the cash?

    This is a way of possibly getting him a title and then marketing him as a 2-weight world champion. Win against a dangerous fighter and he can then knock over a few cans then perhaps drop down for CBS 2 or up to heavy which he's hinted at before.

    You know full well Okolie isn't being Jobbed off by anyone

    Look at his business dealings, he clearly looks after number 1 so don't act like it's a victory for Matchroom :risas3:

    I doubt it, the last time I looked he was working for Frank Warren.

    embarrassing stopgap before he takes a tilt at heavyweight and becoming a '3 weight world champ'.

    If he was working for Warren, why wasn’t Joshua vs Ngannou on TNT? It was on DAZN and Sky. If Queensbury were such big players there it would have been on TNT. All the Saudi events have been on DAZN.

    Queensbury do the paperwork for the Saudis but let’s be real they are all working for His Excellency. He pays the fighters and decides the fights.

    I didn’t even want to bring this up but you started talking about promoters first.
