    "Hearn says"

    All we are interested in is what Mike Hayton will be telling the ibf, which is- Josh suffered a hand injury in the frampton fight and he has been coming to see me since.
    I wonder how many on here will be saying Mike Hayton is telling lies to cover up for Josh.

    There was a fair amount of chatter that Warrington would delay. Here's Dominic Ingle's tweet from 2 January:

    Be interesting to see if

    takes on his mandatory

    now the IBF are enforcing it. I’m expecting

    to advise him to vacate,failing that,a sick note will be going in as he won’t want to fight Galahad within the stipulated time frame.

    So Dominic saw Josh hurt his hand in the fight, he's seen an opportunity to promote galahad and that's what he said.
    Josh hurt his hand, there's nothing more to speculate. He WILL be fighting Barry and it will more than likely be at Leeds arena, probably in June.
    There's nothing wrong with trying to second guess what's going on, as this is a boxing forum but calling Josh a duck is going a bit far.
    The fight will happen doofus, I even speculated that josh might drop the belt for a big payday vs Valdez but that won't be happening.
    It's galahad and more will be released at next week's presser I'm sure.

    When the fight happens I wonder what some of the excuses these mongs will come out with?

    The fight is clearly going to happen it got slightly delayed because of an injury and now all the conspiracy theorist’s are out saying it’s a cover up a duck money blah blah blah even Hearn getting in on it.

    Don’t worry sparticus josh will soon shut these lads mouth up and facts for your inside info mate.

    Another thing pal, the so called move to Arum. Josh doesn't know anything about it, although he did say that it's not unusual for Frank to spring surprises on him.

    To be fair pal, the poster on here who claims to be a big friend of Warrington has speculated a few times that Warrington may swerve this fight.

    Your mincing words here doofus.
    Let's have all this right. I have said it is possible Josh may fight Valdez instead of galahad but that was in a scenario of he could only take one of the fights, I e either Valdez or galahad. Swapping out galahad to Valdez would never of been seen as a swerve or a duck to any reasonable boxing fan

    Confirmed.

    15th June at first direct arena in leeds!

    Be a great fight and a great atmosphere in there...

    But I’m shocked at that to be honest. The amount of money spent to win it, it’s definitely not PPV and they’ve held it in a small arena as opposed to the ground? I don’t see how this turns a profit?

    At the presser Ingle hinted Galahad was getting the bigger purse. Perhaps Warrington has had to make some sacrifices to get home ground.
    Galahad supremely confident, looked in shape and the bigger man at the head to head.

    I thought it was a mandatory purse bid so 70-30 or whatever. Maybe they’ve had to compensate Galahad so he’s accepted the fight push back date?

    65-35 I think. Galahad must get 35% of the winning bid. Ingle seemed to be suggesting that Warrington wasn't getting paid 65% of the bid.

    Maybe he agreed to forgo a portion of it in order to ensure that his side won the purse bid. Hearn was succesful in driving it what may be beyond the fights worth, perhaps Josh has recognised that and settled for less?

    What made you think Galahad seemed confident? He hardly said a word and every time he did speak Ingle was in his ear first.

    Or, when he realises that he's getting the smaller purse, pulls out injured again.

    Not seen much of Galahad

    How much of a chance does he have in this fight? More than Frampton?
