    With rumours that Frank is going to link up with Bob and Top Rank in the UK next year, wouldn't be surprised if Warrington v Stevenson happens at ER in May, should Stevenson win the IBF

    From what I've heard, I should think it is the link up. Don't take that for gospel though

    For months we'd been told that Josh wants to fight in America but none of the champions want to know.
    First his promoter said that he was offered the Santa Cruz fight and now his father confirms that they were offered the Gary Russell fight : (from 2.33)

    Foreign fighters get robbed in the US all the time. I don't blame him.

    And Haymon is a giant sleazeball.

    They've had offers from Santa Cruz and Russell to fight in the States and turned them both down. We don't know the details of the bids but we do know he chose to fight the world's no.118 in his hometown.

    For more money or he wud of gone to the states. He was ranked 4th with the ibf boxrec isnt a official ranking so saying he was 118th the world means nothing. get over it your hate for warrington is getting embarrassing.

    If you don’t fancy fighting someone then you offer them peanuts to fight knowing that the other fighter will turn it down . Then you say well we offered him the fight. Santa Cruz doesn’t want the fight as it’s too risky with little rewards against a fighter who Is virtually unheard of in the states and who would probably beat him .

    Or if you don't fancy fighting someone you say you've been offered peanuts and turn it down. Neither of us know what was offered.

    How much was he paid last night and how much were the offers from Santa Cruz and Russell?

    Frank and Arum, oh great. As if boxing wasn't already stagnating with slow good matchups and proposed matches that never come off.

    This ^^^

    Warrington going down that well-worn path of an excellent win followed by deliberate mediocre opponents aka the thing that's slowly but surely killing off interest in boxing here.

    Two great wins, Mandatory defence and then this **** one. I'd say he needs to fight a top guy next or he deserves the stick.

    It's killing boxing mate. I've never known interest as low as this here.
