    Spot on mate. Who outside of the Olympians and already established boxers such as Bellew, Brook and Froch did Hearn really sign from scratch with no Olympic fanfare and develop into a big name? Only name that springs to mind is Dave Allen and that's really for comedic and general likability reasons. Ritson could have been one it's a big shame that his hype train derailed because it was certainly exciting for a while.

    The thing is it’s Tokyo 2020 next year and I’m of the belief Hearn has signed the McCormacks and McGrail. If they go in to matchroom off the back of a good olympics it’s a big statement.

    Agree. I hate watching him but numbers don't lie. His resume is very impressive, totally cleaned out at British level.

    I was gona say I hate him but it’s a bit of a strong word. He’s horrible to watch but he’s also horrible to face, he’s so unorthodox and gangly and has genuine real power. I think he can go far but will struggle to have the public on side.

    DAZN was the beginning of the end of Hearn, and then Fury and Wilder happening last December put the nail in the coffin. Hearn just looked bitter and wasn't putting on the fight nights he was from 2013-2017.

    Sky need a complete rebrand from their boxing output. A new play-by-play (Smith is atrocious, they need a Ranello type), a proper colour commentator (in the mould of Malignaggi or a prime Jim Watt). They need to cut back on the patronising, bias analysis. No more Jonny Nelson and Dave Coldwell. Have a knowledgable host rather than that bird they have currently. New graphics wouldn't go amiss. Sky's production is just so far behind BT, Showtime and HBO. People are starting to smarten up to their bull**** and propaganda.

    Warren has been very smart. He's seen Hearn has deserted to the US so has tapped into the Saturday Night Fight Night market Eddie had a strangle hold on. He's built up the likes of Dubois and Yarde well, whilst adding the likes Frampton, Warrington and Joyce. It's a shame Saunders hasn't been in any real big fights and Fury is away in the US, but BT are playing Sky off the park at the moment.

    Joshua - Fury
    Smith - Saunders
    Whyte - Joyce
    Buatsi - Yarde
    Campbell - Warrington
    Okolie - Frampton
    Yafai - Edwards
    Josh Taylor? - Catterall
    Beefy - Williams
    Fowler - Hutchinson
    Edwards - Sharp

    Matchroom Mentions
    Fitzgerald, Galahad, Burns, Fielding, Cordina, Davies Jr, Brook, Gill, Johnson, Swifty, Quigg, Ryder, Ritson, Crolla, Cheeseman, Butler, Benn

    Queensbury mentions
    Gorman, Arthur, Richards, heffron, Metcalf, Maxwell, Massey, Barrett, Bowen.

    Obviously some are different weights but matches them sort of on status or where they’re currently at. Matchroom still has the better stable with the most depth when you look at it on paper.

    Frank has got Saunders and Warrington as world champions. Hearn has got Smith, Edwards, Yafai and can include Katie Taylor if you must. But not much in it there.

    Be interesting to revisit it after Wilder Fury and Ruiz Joshua 2 and with all the fights in between.

    MR has the better stable.
    Fury is basically owned by Arum/ESPN at this point. BJS fights bums only and to big of a **** up. So that leaves Warrington and Frampton.

    And who has the brighter future? That depends on how soon DAZN can enter UK market.

    Ricky Burns 36, near the end not fought since last year.

    Quigg whats the story with him not fought in 9 months ?

    Stephen Smith is another wrong side of 30 and look at his last two opponents.

    Brook's another a fight or two away from retiring I reckon.

    Has been a huge number of good amateurs sign for Warren over the last 12 months.

    Would make sense if Eddie has gambled on the potential Olympians
