    This is all well known but I'm posting it as nobody on here seems to be talking about it.

    Mis-Matchroom know that as soon as they confirm Whyte for April 13th, the Wilder-Fury rematch gets announced for the week before. Finkel and Fish Eyes are holding back til Hearn confirms AJ-Whyte, then they announce the rematch in Vegas or wherever else the big money is.

    Hearn has known this for ages, but he stupidly went public with April 13th at Wembley. He never imagined Wilder-Fury would be so successful and exciting. He thought there'd be no call for a rematch and he overestimated his power in the equation.

    Hearn tried desperately to counteract this by going with Khan-Brook on April 13th, but Khan screwed him. He's trying to tempt Wlad out of retirement, but Wlad-Whyte isn't a stadium fight and no amount of card-stacking can upgrade it to being so.

    As it stands, Mis-Matchroom have no other event that could take April 13th. Eddie took a punt on Wilder-Fury failing and it didn't pay off. Now AJ is gonna have to suffer for it, but he made his bed when he signed his life away.

    Interesting points. Would Wlad - Whyte sell out Wembley? No chance in my opinion. Could they sell enough to justify it? Maybe.

    The way it’s looking to me, Hearn wants more US coverage for AJ and is gonna use Miller for that. So he needs his Wembley date filled in and is trying to bring back Wlad and use his only other PPV star as bait. Everything seems so up in the air that I don’t think we’ll be getting matches clarified for a while

    Wilder-Fury could be on the same night and it wouldn't make a difference to AJs PPV or attendance. You're a delusional fool.

    Based on what? Nobody who understands anything about boxing or business would agree with you. Hearn has wanted AJ to fight Whyte at Wembley for years. You think he suddenly changed his mind for no reason?

    Quit the gaslighting and attempt a real argument please.

    Nurse! Nurse! He's out of his cell again.

    Are you for real, it would eviscerate anything Puppetroom put on.

    Spot on. I thought post Fury fight that Hearn was ruffled, I think I grossly underestimated just how much of a seismic shift Fury's reemergence has caused. It's knocked Planet AJ off it's axis like the 2004 tsunami.

    Fully agree on Wlad-Whyte. Now imagine if Fury-Wilder went 7 days earlier than that in Vegas. I know plenty of high rollers who'd be leaving the floor seats at Wembley open to fly to Vegas.

    If Hearn really wanted US coverage for AJ, Miller next doesn't get him there. Beyond the fact Miller is a total unknown in the US, there's no reason Hearn would lose multi-millions in UK PPV and ticket sales to put AJ on in the US. Any increased DAZN subs at $10 would never make up for the money lost by staging a UK PPV at 4am. Also, they risk having a poor attendance and being usurped by a big US show. Top Rank and PBC could put on a show the week before AJ just for kicks. A non-televised AJ event would then have non-stop promo on ESPN and Fox Sports to contend with. AJ risks losing further bargaining power and I still can't see a reason why he'd do that without his hand being forced.

    Hearn is being comprehensively outflanked by the combined experience of Finkel, Haymon and Warren and daddy can't "advise" him out of this one. They're getting payback for all the ****ing around and subsequent lying he did when he lowballed Wilder.

    That's it. Hearn has tried to move the goal-posts saying they'll go in June, but it hasn't worked. Fish eyes and finkel can wait Hearn out as Wilder-Fury II is the bigger fight. Hearn really really really needed Fury to get KO'd quick or win a boring UD. An exciting draw has wrecked him.

    Exactly! Hearn got arrogant and not only planned too far ahead, but announced his plans publicly. School boy error. The wrinkly old twats he's up against have come up trumps.

    Is it me or is there a conspicuous silence today from a few of the usual MR shills?

    Old master Warren is like General Chuikov at Stalingrad to Eddie's von Paulus. He's weathered the initial storm and has now encircled the Matchroom 6th Army. Destruction is inevitable, how long can they hold out on in the frozen city without supplies?

    The bigger fight to what ? If Hearn puts on Joshua vs Whyte in the same month as Wilder vs Fury , Finkel will take a big hit in PPV bc Fury is carrying that fight more then Wilder is and he's nowhere in Joshuas status and not even Whytes right now in the U.K.

    Hearn will probably use that fight anyway and build up Joshuas profile in the U.S with Miller if a Wilder vs Fury is agreed to.

    You don't know what you are talking about because either way it pans out for team Joshua , a Wilder fight doesn't effect them at all its not a contest because Joshua is the fighter who will still generate more revenue then both Fury and Wilder combined.should he fight Whyte at Wembley.

    The smart move is to wait to see if Wilder fights Fury and go to the U.S where Joshua will be more noticed than either of those two , even moreso if they fight around the same time in the states. The bigger the profiles get for Wilder and Fury it only helps grow Joshua revenue to what is already there .

    I don't think you guys fully understand that concept that he needs those guys to get more known so Joshua himself benefits more and fights are easier to make .Lol

    You guys will get a reality check on who generates more money and don't forget to even come close to generating AJ numbers they have to fight in Vegas compared to AJ fighting at Barclays or MSG. Lol

    Whyte has been rumored since Joshua beat Martin. Ya'll are bound to get it right eventually. Keep trying.

    Right that's it everyone, Puppetroom's own unpaid, volunteer, unofficial, home-based strategy/finance/PR/ consultant has weighed in.

    No more debate needed.
