    I think that the quality of Matchroom's UK Shows has deteriorated significantly in recent times.

    Really interesting part here on Fight Disciples about DAZN and some of their tactics.

    Just stuck DAZN on to see what the bingo hall looked like. Met with a "subscription is ending soon, act now" page, and then a 1-minute ad before the stream started. Game changed.

    And even then, the "before the bell" show must have ended before I got there - just getting animated DAZN logos on repeat.

    It properly looks lie a bingo hall too!

    Edit: I'm mistaken, some better camera angles showed seats upstairs like a small hall, shame there's nobody in them

    Throughout the week's build up to Benn vs Dobson, we have been told : "This is big time boxing in Vegas". That term has taken on a whole new meaning :)

    Huge achievement for Connor Benn headlining in Vegas according to Mr Eddie Hearn while mentioning some of the greats who fought there in the past.

    Hearn is the master of spin and lies.

    And that's the problem. They can't go on about York Hall and "leisure centres" then claim this is any better. At least more than a couple of hundred people turn up to York Hall willingly, as opposed to getting comped by the casino. For all that it wasn't a bad atmosphere thanks to the travelling Brits.

    Lowlight was the fact Fisher won so quickly and left a space for the Eddie Hearn show at ringside to fill the time!

    Matchroom's show yesterday reminded me of the club shows that were organized at the Blue Horizon 20 - 25 years ago.

    Such a big event the official Las Vegas tourist guide didn't list it, amongst all the tribute acts and jugglers in the hotels.

    Where did you see this? Only place I’ve seen is from a single Twitter account.

    Would seem incredible if true.

    Who in their right mind is going to buy that? The exciting and explosive Garcia of the Campbell fight seems long gone and no one is going to pay to watch nostrils box. Dull as dishwater.
