    He should now be 3rd biggest boxing star in the country. He isnt.

    I can see post matchroom sky doing a deal with top rank which might help him.

    They can’t due to the agreements they have with BT. For
    Me it’s all down to his promoter as he should be a big star over here.

    he signed with Top Rank as they have the fights for him in Ramirez, Teo, Crawford etc. But promotionally they have been poor the last few years. They should over the next 12/18 months be trying to build him back in Scotland to get a Ricky Hatton style fan base for his Vegas return in a big fight. But mark my word he fights Catterall on a BT PPV.

    On talent and boxing ability he should be the biggest star.

    If Frampton can draw big crowds to outdoor venues in a small country like NI they are doing a shti job with Taylor in comparison.

    He has more than earned those big nights. Mtk TR etc need to up their game.

    What agreements? Crawford v brook and now this not on there. Perhaps it's only Fury? Even Framptons last fight wasn't on bt after the location changed.

    Taylor is TV toxic, no one is interested in watching him.

    No offence to anyone but whenever there's a big Top Rank show someone says it'll be on BT cause they have a deal with Top Rank. There's been more TR shows on Premier than BT. The only place you can consistently see TR shows in the UK is FiteTv.

    Frampton is a household name here in NI I see no reason why with the right promotion Josh couldn't be on the same level as Carl

    Yes Taylor would have been stupid to have signed with Hearn. As we have seen, Hearn struggles to put on big fights and Taylor would have had rubbish fights under Hearn and gone nowhere in the process, but hey, more importantly to Eddie's fans, at least he would have been popular......
