Anyone think Frampton will have a long WBO reign of imported cheap bums ?

Valdez is the current WBO champ and I can't see W***** fronting the cash to get him over.  Frampton would have to travel to get a shot and then it would be some task for him to win it.

I'm surprised that they didn't go straight after Selby as his career is going nowhere fast and would probably be grateful for a payday.

Risky move considering the rumoured reason he split with Cyclone was that he'd been done out of money for previous fights.

And when was last time W***** put on a stadium show, Haye-Chisora in 2012?

Obviously he'll be no.1 fighter in W*****'s stable and BT Sport will give him good promotion but still not sure it's the best move.

It's stupid move.

Sky has their Box Office, whereas BT has nothing.

Frampton was saying that Eddie / Sky have too many big stars to keep happy, and he'd be BT's no1.

Sorry Carl but you aint a big star.

I think it is a risky move but could pay off long term

When Eddie first started he only really had Kell brook who was fighting at leisure centres in Sheffield. And then he got others defecting one after one.

Frampton is probably the biggest ticket seller in British boxing now bar aj.

I think the success here depends on how much money bt are willing to throw at boxing.

Both Quigg and Selby are under matchroom and neither have much to get excited about in a long time. If their career trajectory impacted on his decision then it may not be a bad decision at all.

Can't imagine he's bursting with enthusiasm for that. Other than obviously Frampton and Martinez quiggs opponents under matchroom have been pretty dire.

Hearn should be able to make Quigg vs Selby over dinner if he really wanted too. Unless one of them really doesn't fancy it I've no idea why he hasn't. Neither look even close to getting a bigger fight anytime soon and now Carl is with Frank it's unlikely either will face him.


People on here slated cyclone but what they achieved with Frampton is far better than anything matchroom has done for Lee and Scott. Lee just gets stuck on shitty PPV cards, and Scott on crappy cards in general.

So now degale and Selby have gone to bt as well. I think this is good for the tv deal as degale is a well known name. Unfortunately neither him or Selby have massive followings
I suppose it will make Selby v Warrington and then possibly Frampton easier to make

It's also a case of 2 matchroom fighters falling by the wayside as they aren't called Anthony joshua

Both Degale and Selby sold their soul to Haymon though didnít they. Went over to America and both their careers have lost momentum. Eddie Hearn is a class A cnut but I donít blame him for not falling over himself to give them a deal when they come back cap in hand.

Yes both made a huge error taking Haymon's money......penny wise pound foolish.

Both would have been built by Hearn and both have the ability for him to get behind, but when they didn't put their faith in him, he understandably put his efforts into other fighters who hadn't run to Haymon.

They'll not admit it, but I'm sure both realise the mistake they made and will now seek to do stuff at home. Pride means they won't go kissing Hearns arse for opportunity, but W***** should be able to make some things happen for them....certainly Selby is straight forward with Warrington and Frampton already with Frank.

Yeah, neither have ended up in a great position career wise at the moment.  Aside from Ramirez, who isn't a name over here, there are no massivel fights on the horizon for DeGale until the WBSS has concluded and the winner is ready to fight again in around a years time.  Best he can hope for really is that the loser of Groves v Eubank puts up a really strong performance.

Selby is so far down the pecking order at Feather it's hard to remember that he's got a world title at times.  The Warrington fight is obviously there but that's hardly an exciting fight for anyone outside Leeds.

I was under the impressions there was some sort of agreement between the two promotors .

Not sure how it works mind but co-promoting of sorts?

Some good signings, guessing this show will be tune up fights against some fighters lower down the IBF rankings but like some have said the Selby v Warrington/Frampton fights should come easy afterwards.

Degale could chase Ramirez or benavidez and pick up another belt in preparation to unify at the end of the super series.

On a side note if you look at this list of non PPV cards from matchroom this year (stolen from a poster on check hook) then it doesn't make for pretty reading. Imagine if Golden boy or Haymon promised Joshua huge American money next year when his contract is up where does that leave Hearn then?

"since the start of March Hearn has done 8 non PPV/non NextGen cards, the headliners for these cards were:

Burnett unification - Good headline level fighter, not super exciting and lower weights but will be in good fights

Crolla-Burns - Burns is done, very hard to see Crolla getting back to world level, even with Hearn steering him

Rocky Fielding - Euro level fighter really, not well known, doesn't sell real tickets, not good enough to hang with anyone good

Burnett again

Kal Yafai - Same as Burnett, good fighter, won't ever be a star, likely any of his next big fights will be in the US' on non Hearn cards

Martin Murray - Awful fighter to watch, not gonna compete at world class and nearing the end of his career, not a name or a ticket seller

Crolla again

Burns again"
