Title: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: Gaz on September 24, 2017, 10:02:48 AM
Just seen this announced on twitter.

Thoughts?

Well it's a UK based station so good on that front but is W***** going to get him the big fights he wants ?

As much as we mock him Eddie is the best UK promoter

Interesting.....

It seems the personal animosity between him and Hearn has played into this. Not sure the path that he intends to take with W***** and what big fights he feels can be made. Seemed more straight forward with Matchroom, but he'll be on BT and boxnation and he's got a big profile so we'll see what happens.

Agree with the above post, I think W***** will look to make a PPV fighter after an initial comeback fight, even with his record surely W***** can't mess up ticket sales for Frampton. A homecoming fight fair enough but I hope we see Frampton in big fights, I'm not so sure W***** will deliver, we will see.

Didn't see that coming.

W***** hasn't been a force in years I don't see the attraction. Surely I move stateside with arum/oscar might of been better.

Saying that don't know the lads personal circumstances . I presume there's a shed load of reasons

I'd of thought the  paddys would lap up him fighting you in there so hear a not needed  ;) as

I think Framptons problem is his body he's struggling with weight yet might be two small to move up again he's stocky in height. I think his mind to switch trainer was made when he failed to make weight for his fight last time out. He is a main player in the lower weight levels for him to miss weight is a major error in camp and training and could have cost him in the fight.

It will be interesting to watch his career now I have always felt ( personal opinion ) fighters who fight at the lower weights seem to peak earlier and at 30 he might not have many big fights left.

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?


Title: Re: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: tweetstreet on October 26, 2017, 03:06:46 PM
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"


Title: Re: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: The Hurricane on October 26, 2017, 03:35:41 PM
It doesn't make great reading.  And then after this weekend it is the Monaco card and then the Haye v Bellew 2 PPV to finish the year off.  If AJ keeps winning, I wouldn't be surprised if he went it alone rather than look at any US promoters.  It's not like Eddie has to do much in the way of work to flog tickets and PPV's for his fights against whoever now.


Title: Re: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: tweetstreet on October 26, 2017, 04:29:10 PM
Yeah or A Haymon as manager deal puts him in with the big US networks and that moves his £10m pay checks from matchroom up towards 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s.


On a side not I was predicting Dorian Darch for Dubois next opponent and looks like I may have called it right. Not a bad choice seeing as he was Ajs 4th fight and he was technically never put down by AJ so if DD can do that it'll be a marketing tool for W*****


Title: Re: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: Driscoll on October 26, 2017, 04:29:56 PM
I donít think Joshua necessarily has to go to America for the money. The only decent fight there for him is Wilder and Hearn can deliver that for him. The big fight that everyone wants to see is Fury and if that come off it wouldnít be in the US.

Looks like Flanagan is moving up to 140. Some going that to manage to avoid having a single big fight at 135. And to think he was telling Garcia he couldnít fight him as the Linares fight was basically done a couple of days ago.

Seems a little out of his hands if W***** can't get anything signed up for him. Not as though he was overjoyed at having to face the fighters he has so far.

He would walk through Burns and Crolla but they are making alot more money than Flanagan.

Lets hope he can get a fight now he is up at 140.

Post by: The Hurricane on October 27, 2017, 03:53:38 PM
Hard to believe that it would be that difficult to make the Linares fight though, even more so now he is based over here.

Based on who Flanagan has fought so far, I'm not convinced he walks through anyone.  His WBO reign has been almost as uninspiring as Cleverly's.

Yeah his time as a lightweight titlist has been beyond disappointing. He looked good winning the title and he is a genuinely talented fighter who had the potential to mix it with anyone at the weight.

If weight issues have brought this move about then fair enough....but its ridiculous some of the matches that haven't been made at 135 for Flanagan. Him and Crolla was an absolute natural and absolutely should have been made. Crolla has at least been in with the likes of Linares and rolled the dice at 135, Turbo has yet to have anything close to a defining fight.

Not sure whose to blame for this or whether its just circumstances, but things need to improve at 140 in terms of his opposition or he'll go down as one of the most obscure world champs we've had and that'd be such a shame given the ability that he's got.

I can only imagine that if heís going to fight Mo Hooker as slated then they will be aiming for the vacant IBF title. But with Crawford at the top of the tree and the likes of Taylor and Catterall domestically Iím not sure heís going to make much of a dent in the division.

Crawford has relinquished his title and said he's now competing at welter....so I'm thinking picking up the vacant WBO strap in a fight against Hooker is the plan. He'll fit in at the weight I suppose and he should be able to beat Hooker, but its disappointing the fights he didn't compete in at 135. Really it must be weight issues bringing this about though because its not like 140 is an easy division.

If he can pick up the vacant strap then I'd imagine W***** will try make a Catterall fight as he's got them both.

I appreciate certain fighters do dodge the big fights but they tend to be the guys raking in the cash or maybe a Stevenson who gets a good following in Canada so happy to just keep fighting mandatory fights and handpicked voluntary defences.

Flanagan is the complete opposite, he has been dodged all the way up to being a World Champion because unfortunately for him he brings bugger all to the table in terms of money.

Not sure what people are expecting from Flanagan he doesn't want to be fighting Petrov for little money, he's spoken about his frustrations plenty of times.

In my opinion at least he beats Crolla and Burns with ease, but looks like we won't find out unfortunately.


Title: Re: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: The Hurricane on October 28, 2017, 12:01:54 PM
Iíd favour Crolla to beat him and wouldnít write a past his best Burns off against him. Both have been competitive with elite fighters and beaten very good ones whereas we donít know how Flanagan fairs against above average opposition.

He had the title long enough to engineer a decent fight with it but in typical W***** fighter fashion seemed happy to do his talking from the sidelines rather than in the ring to make it happen. Although it doesnít help that he has less personality than my right boot.

As much as I like Crolla I donít see Flanagan losing that fight. Burns is just not even worth discussing anymore.

Again how you blame Flanagan for fights not being made I donít know. Anyway I think we will have to agree to disagree on this subject.

Gruelling fight for Frampton....but in fairness he won't meet many fighters who'll be able to handle some of the bombs he landed on that guy. They'd have put the vast majority of 126 pounders on the floor or at the very least forced them to give ground......but that guy looked virtually impervious to punishment.

Hard to gauge really. Has Framton lost a step? Or was it just a case of shedding rust against a genuinely very tough opponent. I lean towards the latter. I think that fella would be a serious handful for anybody and coming back off a lay off I think Frampton's performance was okay. But his rivals will take comfort from things in that fight. There are certainly some interesting fights to be made at featherweight.

Odd fight from Frampton, 4 rounds doing what he wanted then 6 doing what he had to do. Here's hoping that was one to shed rust as his fitness looked far from convincing.


Tete is a beast!

Post by: wbamitch on November 19, 2017, 03:58:06 PM
Tough 10 rounder for Frampton which was good to see rather than a blowout, there were spells of concern, more so with fatigue beating him. There were doubts coming in with Frampton's power but I think Garcia was a very big guy with a great chin, I think a lot of other guys would have at least been forced to take a step back never mind being hurt by some of the shots Frampton was landing.

Frampton didn't seem to have lost any skills, a nice variety of shots and as I've mentioned they did look to have a lot of pop on them but Garcia is just one of those guys. Certainly it appears Frampton may have underestimated that part of his game and he was very clever to hold a lot towards the end, particularly in the last round that I thought it was important for him to win, which he did. It turned out to be an important and beneficial step for him, hopefully he is better conditioned next time out and you definately see him still being right up there and challenging the best, I would like the 3rd Santa Cruz match which is very hard to call, there are a fair few other options for him too.

Tete/Burnett, I want to see that fight!


Title: Re: Frampton signs with W***** and BT Sport!
Post by: lurkyshaka on November 19, 2017, 04:22:51 PM
Tete is a superb fighter but I fear that he'll never get to feature in the fights his talent deserves.....I cannot see Booth and Matchroom letting Ryan Burnett go anywhere near Tete. Burnett is good but Tete is better and would relieve him of his titles and very possibly in a damaging fashion.

W***** needs to earn his money now with Tete, he has to do what is necessary to get this guy big fights.

Glad you have said that as I was thinking this too.

I am hoping thought i'm wrong and its ring rust as its fair to say Frampton has a better lifestyle than the Hitman himself :)

I am guessing he will have someone pretty easy in March / April time and going by W***** comments his fight at Windsor Park is likely to be Selby / Warrington.

Conlin fight was thrilling but a bad loss for him. It was quite brutal from the outset.
I think Frampton struggled but in a good way. He won't think he's ready to go in with the best straight away without another tune up. Plus it got him fight fit after a tough ten rounder. I still say he beats anyone else in the UK.

I see that Cyclone have issued legal proceedings against Frampton. That relationship went seriously south quickly.

Wasnít the rumours that they were greedy and had every member of the family on some wage/role - and yet they essentially had one fighter in Frampton?

Carlís got kids to feed, Shane aside he shouldnít be feeding Barryís too.

I think they did ok for the most part, but the amount of irrelevant maguigans making a living from doing something they know nothing about is a joke.

Once Josh Taylor departs I expect him to follow suit.
