    It's just embarrassing, it's just clueless casuals who listen to Hearn and Sky Sports Adam Smith just accept what's said without a thought, they honestly don't understand what they are looking at and honestly don't understand boxing.



    Bridges opponents in her 5 fights have a combined record of 12-25-5

    Courtenay's opponents in her 7 fights have a combined record of 25-29-9


    And this is a WORLD TITLE?

    The WBA should be ashamed of themselves, you get fights where there is one top fighter and some random who has been given a ranking out of nowhere but neither Bridges or Courtenay deserve a world title fight.

    Agree with everything you say here n17 the only thing I will say is that any woman's fight with matchroom behind it will ultimately benefit all the fighters in the long run because they are the only promotional outfit really backing the females globally.dont worry though bridges and courtenay will get it one way or another

    I have no problem with female boxers and there are some that really impress me but Courtney and Bridges do not ! This is an Instagram /YouTube event where their respective bust size is the major selling point ! At the conclusion one of them will be recognised as a World Champion and that will boost their followers.I hope it does boost female boxing personally I think there are better role models for aspiring female boxers.

    I don’t think Matchroom are trying to benefit woman’s boxing at all with these YouTube fights. They are doing it because the fights are cheap to make

    Adam Booth has 1-0 Ellie Scotney who would already beat Courtenay and Bridges every single day of the week.

    Easy way to get world title fights on the card whilst still paying peanuts. He acts like a pioneer for equality but Hearn doesn’t give 2 f*cks about women’s boxing.

    The problem with this fight is that it’s for a world title, makes a mockery of women’s boxing.

    The pool is very shallow but there are good female fighters like Chantelle Cameron etc who has pretty much no public exposure cause she doesn’t flaunt her bits.

    this fight is purely caus they are both decent looking and nothing else which puts women’s boxing even further behind.

    the Jones v Taylor fight has just been announced, which is actually a decent fight but will be overshadowed by a pair of blondes

    Women's boxing has blown up the last few years over here.nobody uttered a word about women's boxing on here 5 years ago.now you get fans actually debate about it good or bad.that can't be wholly bad surely?

    I’m well aware how woman’s boxing has taken off since 2017 but Hearns constant pushing **** fights as worthy of world titles is joke. Also Bridges should not even get approval from theBBBoC as she has fake tits which are against the rules

    Lol I was cringing so hard reading the comments on Matchroom's LinkedIn announcement about the Parker-Chisora PPV. Have a look there is one bloke who regurgitates the old line about "it's only 20 quid". Utter simpletons, but I don't bother replying because I don't want any of my professional peers seeing that nonsense!

    Hahahaha

    My favourite is "it's the same price as a round of drinks"

    Firstly, that's a very cheap round, I'm all in on that, I'd love to able to get a round of drinks for £20

    Secondly when I buy a round of drinks I don't have to sit with Dave Allen, David Price, Adam Smith, Tony Bellew and the rest of the Matchroom Cult.
