I wasn't aware he had any tbh, but if he does, then I guess a couple he's involved with will be. Both Kody Davis and Joe Joyce are Brits with links to the PBC, so I'd imagine they'll definitely be on, but again that will be nothing to do with Poxon.

I'd guess those are the main fights, outside of that, they could maybe pick up a British or Commonwealth title fight if they can find a gap somewhere not under the control of the other UK promoters.

Possibly one or two of PBC's American prospects too in stay busy affairs.
Probably still has Adam Etches!

It was a draw mate and a fair one at that. I don't buy this myth that Jack was robbed in any way whatsoever. I wouldn't complain had he won but equally wouldn't complain if degale got the nod.

On another point regarding this fight, there's a decent interview with Ronnie davies on seconds out where he is very honest about jnr and what he's like to work with etc. Not really anything we didn't know but good to see that Davies isn't just towing the line and blowing smoke up jnrs arse all the while. He comes across as he doesn't really like the kid imo but is doing his bit for him as a favour to senior.
The last round sealed it for Jack, it was razor close going into the last round, most had it level or either by a point but the 10-8 round was major, regardless DeGale is shot now, he is the DeGale from the 12th round in the Jack fight lol

If Eubank has learned from the Groves fight then I think he can take DeGale. I hope he does too. The arrogant wanker is there for the taking.

Hes had a fight since and in the two completed rounds or so I saw it didn't look like he HAD learned. But as we know Degale may well be over the hill

Interesting interview with Ronnie Davies about Eubank never listening to anything he says. It's probably already been posted, but whatever.

Saw that earlier. Why does he bother with the petulant wee prick?? gets paid well I assume? Loyalty to Sr?
I get ridiculed for mention it on here but in 2010/11 I actually use to train in Ronnie's gym with my brother.

He never charged us anything and didn't seem to be money orientated in the slightest.

Jnr use to speak to him like he was a piece of shit at times. Ronnie use to give as good as he got though

I expect if he didn't have such a long standing relationship with snr he would've told jnr where to go by now. Ronnie seems like a decent bloke and has been around it long enough to see all the different types of people The game has to offer so I suspect jnr talking like a cunt is water off a ducks back to him at this point. I assume he probably just sees it as a decent little earner for the little amount of work he seemingly has to do.

I know people dislike degale but he's a thousand times more likable than jnr ever has or will be so I'm thoroughly rooting for him in this one. One thing I'll say for jnr though is that he's managed to make a very good career out of his name and ability he has. Not got a single world level win but still lands these big fights from name value alone, also been on ppv a good few times now albeit completely unwarranted on all but 1 occasion.

Had Jnr in the gym since he was a toddler. Probably like family. CEJ himself says Ronnie is a coordinator, which Ronnie himself says. Apparently he's taken on a new trainer full-time.
