    Matchroom boxing’s 3 biggest cash cows

    1. Anthony Joshua
    Defeated by Andy “the barrell” Ruiz and dominated by Usyk

    2. Canelo Alvarez
    Totally dominated over 12 by unmarketable russian Bivol

    3. Connor Benn
    Eventual derailment of the Conor Benn hype train is imminent and will occur within the next 2 years

    Currently Eddie sits at no 3 in my british promoter rankings behind Brick top and Ben Shlong. When his last hope Benn is inevitably beaten Hearn will fall behind big Mick, Lee Eaton and Kelly Maloney.

    Tough times for Matchroom sport

    I’m not a fan of his, but he just put on 2 massive shows. I think they are doing ok.

    Totally untrue, but I like a good bit of trolling so I'm onboard.

    Only thing you've overlooked is the #TeamShanny movement, this shits taking over world boxing

    Agree but on a streaming channel very few know or care about and in the middle of the night.

    DAZN UK needs 2-3 of these shows monthly in the UK to grow a subscriber base

    Hearn is currently on top financially as he is making the money. Sporting success is diminishing. But £s come first with him.

    MR still is much better situation than their competitors.

    AJ and Canelo still the biggest cash cows in boxing. Taylor who just sold out Maddison Square Gardens too. They just had the fight of year too in Wood vs Conlan.

    Guys such as Whyte and Benn who have large British followers.

    They also have WCs such as Usyk, Bivol, GGG, Okolie, Taylor and Warrington.

    Potential WCs in Madrimov, Austin Williams and Buatsi.

    Bivol is signed to them though, as long as he stays with them too it's not the end of the world. This is what Canelo gets for biting off more he can chew.

    Plus they have you on here selling Matchroom Boxing CVs and ripping non Matchroom Boxing CVs to pieces.

    A Russian chap at the moment doesn't exactly fall into the "marketable" category

    Golovkin isn’t with Matchroom anymore. Neither is Usyk.

    Top Rank have Shakur, Lomachenko, Lopez, Inoue, Beterbiev, Fury, Josh Taylor etc. Smashes Matchroom’s stable to bits.

    Is that true though? We all need a bad guy, and a Russian bad guy is kind of ideal at the moment. The only problem is that Dmitry is such a nice, unassuming chap - nothing that can't be confected with some clever marketing though.

    Invincible Russian robot a la Ivan Drago could work.

    Usyk is still matchroom. Just checked GGG is directly DAZN and not MR.

    I'd back Bivol to beat Beterbiev (who is also now a bugger name after beating Canelo).

    I'd back AJ and Usyk to beat Fury but apparently Fury is retired now.

    Teo Lopez fought on DAZN in last fight were were he lost his titles. Hainey has joined Top Rank for this fight but has hinted he will return back to Matchroom after the Kambosos fight.

    J.Taylor should of lost to Catterall.

    Stevenson, Inoue and Loma are top class.

    Top Rank have the second best roster but I'd still take Usyk, Bivol, Canelo, AJ, Okolie, K.Taylor over Inoue, Stevenson, Loma, Beterbiev, J.Taylor (the DAZN roster are certainly the bigger earners).

    Well if Lopez doesn’t count because his last fight was on another promoters show then Whyte doesn’t count on your list.

    Have you actually just said you’d take Katie Taylor and Okolie over Inoue and Lomachenko?

    I couldn’t care less who earns what either.
