    Most likely.

    IIRC Mannix or Copp reported that GB did come up with the money for a Kov-Canelo fight at the last minute, but it was too late because Kov and ME had already signed the deal with the Russians.

    Eddie Hearn looks like Dana White with hair.

  10. That tank vs farmer fight NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

    Ruiz better just ask for more money and take the fight

  12. How is Kovalev vs Yarde still happening next week without any press conferences or face offs?
     
  13. Yarde is used to fighting scrawny middleweights. But he is good at attacking the body, and that's Kovalev's weakness.

    So Dana White was on Chris Mannix podcast today and spoke about launching Zuffa boxing in Oct, says he's going to change the game in boxing but don't know how when he probably doesn't want to pay the type of purses boxers get looking at the way he compensates his mma fighters
     
  18. Fury must relax. Wilder is a big dude to take down and im almost positive Fury doesn't have Ortiz power and we all know how hard it was for Ortiz to try and get him down in that one round.

    Never the less this is heavyweight boxing so you never know.

    I don't get the Navarrete is a "ugly fighter" talk. The awkward aggression makes him really entertaining IMO. Hopefully he stays at 122 long enough so we can see him against Inoue.

  21. Ive always been a TB fan, and he spoke the truth for the most part. What i dont really agree on is his thoughts on spence avoiding TC. Tim said it himself, TR doesnt **** with pbc like that.

    I also noticed what he says at 2:06. During the pac/Thurman fight, they didnt list Crawford as a champ while they were showing the current 147 champs. I thought it was grimey and :lol: at the same time.
     
  22. I saw a tweet last night that Yarde isn't even in Russia yet. What is going on?

    Moscow's only 2 hours ahead of the UK, it's not that drastic of a time difference that he'd have to adjust his body too. This whole promotion has made very little sense tho.


    edit* never mind I guess Chelyabinsk (Kov's hometown and where the fight is going to be) is 4 hours ahead of the UK.

  25. Man said the TR Haymon situation is why he wasn’t ducking Errol, but then turned around and said Errol is ducking Crawford even though they have the same TR Haymon issues :lol:

    Hopefully that fight gets made early next year though
