I meant everyone available to him. The Canelo fight for example has never been on the table.
And I'm saying they have been available. Canelo, Golovkin and Jacobs have all fought each other. They'd all fight him if he wanted them, why wouldn't they ? They where big unification fights. He hasn't really wanted them.

Fucking James Degale turned pro the same night as him. He had the bollocks to go to America to chase the big fights and paydays.

I don't know why you're making excuses for a Warren wbo champ. It's been the modus operandi for decades now.

He did I think yeah but I could have sworn Saunders and probably Warren turned down the Upton Park fight. I remember GGG actually going to a West Ham game ha. The Kazakhstan fight fell through when the first Canelo fight started to come together I believe.
So the duck suggestion doesn’t really carry much weight if he was willing (and signed) to fight him in Astana.

I suppose so yeah. Still though I never get the impression off him that he's in this to be an elite fighter. He talks about not being able to get up for fights but he's fighting some geezer nobody knows in Stevenage.

Didn't Saunders turn down a couple of million to fight GGG at Upton Park a couple of years ago. He talks a big game but doesn't want any part of the big boys.
Yes he did he Saunders turned down a fight with GGG in 2016 for a fight in Kazakhstan. He said the purse of £2.2 million was not worth the risk. In an interview with nick parkinson of ESPN in January 2016.

GGG turned down a fight with Billi Joe Saunders the following year in 2017 to focus on landing a fight with Canelo Alvarez.

Bottom line Sunders did not seem to keen until he saw Kell Brooks performance against GGG.

Round and about
BJS and Shefki Kuqi both looking good but I'll only watch competitive fights not ones with odds of 1/41 and 20/1 respectively.

It's not good enough. :nono

Enjoyed the night in Stevenage last night. Entertaining enough. Solid performance from Billy who showed his class. Have to say the Albanian brought more to the fight than expected.
Foster V Lane was a fun watch. McCann looked impressive and it was fantastic to see the Journeyman beat Benn. Not sure his family and friends knew what to do with themselves after it was announced!
However it was the logistics were as shambolic as ever from Frank. A token system was in place for ale, leading to huge queues as there only seemed to be about eight people serving. They ran out of lager at one point leading to near riots. During the Joyce fight an evacuation notice was put on screen, didn't think it was that bad a scrap tbf.
Overall ticket sales were average. Empty seats all over the shop with only half the stadium used. Shame as it was a decent night. 7/10 if only for the strange atmosphere.

Any trouble?

Billy Joe looked slick as always, would expect nothing less. I still believe middleweight is his division but completely understand him taking this fight as he makes himself marketable and available in two divisions. Not so sure I want to see the Andrade fight as I think that might turn out to be a snooze fest. I think the Eubank Jr fight is the easiest fight to make and I think he takes him to school again. Fights like Callum Smith and Canelo would seem to be out of reach for the foreseeable future which is a shame. I think he gives Canelo fits, a chess match of the highest class.
