Latest boxing crack


Eddie Hearn hopes to announce Dillian Whyte's December 22nd fight on Monday. He believes there is a 50/50 chance of the opponent being Luis Ortiz, with the Dereck Chisora rematch also possible.

Any preference who you rather Whyte face?
Ortiz or Chisora?
Ortiz by miles. Its a big name on his CV, and that's exactly what he needs.

Ortiz made Wilder struggle too.


See that Manny has signed with Haymon and apparently likely to fight Broner as a tune up for the Mayweather rematch
Also, why would Manny need a tune up fight? He's been fairly active recently.
Its Mayweather who'd need a tune up fight, if anyone.
