    Aussie PPV Mugths this morning paid SIXTY Oz Dollars for a main event of 3 rounds duration between 2 ex NRL players.

    Eh Day must be going down under soon to tap into the cohort of the biggest mugths in the world.

    How are they putting Conor Benn and Terri Harper amongst this lot with a straight face.

    Fury and Wilder is a rather blatant omission too.

    I don't even know who those women boxers are.

    Henry Cooper v Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali should be included.
    Or Honeyghan and Curry.
    Iconic moments in history of British boxing.

    I'm perhaps just becoming an outdated grumpy old man but I hate what's happening to boxing.
    It's all women and YouTubers at this rate. And bull**** coverage.

    Bring back the days of Harry Carpenter and Reg Gutteridge. They didn't get everything right but they weren't complete puppet shills for the promoters.

    In fact it might be time to quit following this "sport" now before it gets even worse.

    In the last 10-15 years there's been Frampton v Santa Cruz, Brook v Porter, Wilder v Fury, Taylor v Ramirez, Froch v Taylor etc. None of those Brits are Matchroom kiss arses though so they haven't made the cut. Brook and Froch were former Matchroom favourites but Brook binned Eddie off for the Crawford fight and Froch slated AJ so they're blacklisted.

    It is a disgrace mate - where is Shanny?

    Surely the Baby Faced Assassin is the poster girl for Matchroom Mediocrity over the past 6 years.

    Well all the fights in the picture are in the archive section on their app, and it seems appropriate to suggest fights they have rights for.

    Why are they doing this? Maybe they did some market research and read this forum.

    Some people moaned when they put stories / posts up about fights they didn't have coverage for. People like this guy:
    Do you know him?

    Matchroom Boxing have signed a number of Australian boxers so it is probably only a matter of time before Matchroom Boxing has their first boxing event "down under".

    Hearn will locate the fella who went viral when he hit the kangaroo while defending his dog and throw him in with Buatsi
