By the way, is Whyte still fighting on April 20th? I'm sure I read that his fight will be moved to later in the year.

Allen vs Browne to headline Wembley? :yep

Re the Cruz fight purses, his opponent would be lucky to end up with around eight thousand dollars. He would have to fight around five times to end up with about 31000 pounds. As previously stated by me, I can"t see what the attracton is for these guys to enter the profession. Regards Mervyn the Gee

Made sense to stay with Duco as opposed to going with someone like Hearn. Hearn and Higgins have worked together and seem to get on so big fights can still be made.
Hearn and Higgins did business, but far from got along. There's was/is a rather bizarre association.

"Joseph Parker will not be fighting Dereck Chisora in London on April 20," Higgins said. "We've been trying over the last month to make it happen and have heard a lot of rhetoric but we still don't have a contract.

"We signalled last week that we were at the 11th hour and we weren't going to run a short camp. Suddenly they're all over me now. I got a text from Eddie Hearn this morning and [manager] David Haye has reached out. I like them both but I think their approach to the process is cowardly.

"Del Boy's [Chisora's] approach was cowardly in that he watched his compatriot Dillian Whyte basically force Joe into a seven-week camp with home advantage and officials and instead of trying to run a fair fight with a fair lead time – Del Boy has been in camp for three weeks.

"They're basically trying to steal a few weeks of advantage – and home advantage. There is a saying that beggars can't be choosers but I'm both so this fight won't be happening on those terms."

Higgins said he was working on a fight in New Zealand for Parker against a boxer who was "rising through the ranks". Parker's last fight was a knockout victory over Alexander Flores in Christchurch and his next opponent would be a step up, Higgins said.

Seems fair enough. If not a negotiation ploy for more money.

If you are going to resort to pulling dirty tricks at least vary them a bit.

One trick pony.
