I've only heard about Kid Galahad. Never seen him fight once. Well, maybe, but I'd have to go to BoxRec and see if I can remember. Anyone think he's any good? I do know he was a touted prospect.

christ there is some money in boxing these days! going to be a ppv obviously at that money but how many people are going to buy it? got to be i leeds surely, perhaps in a stadium?
Frank probably won't pay Warrington all of that. A purse bid only really secures the away fighter his purse. He could agree with Warrington to bid higher to secure home advantage etc... but pay him less.

At least I'm sure that used to be the case.

Obviously if Hearn had won it, he'd have needed to pay Warrington full whack and potentially do a deal with Galahad.

I've not heard of that TBH. Although I can imagine it being the case with certain promoters :lol:

He is pretty talented, but doesn't hit very hard. More importantly, he is a cheat who also comes across as a horrible little prick who likes to stand behind the bully and egg him on. Hopefully Warrington beats the crap out of him.

I dont think I dreamt it up. It's something I've 'known' for ages :lol:
smart bit of business to be fair! i wonder if that bid could be legally binding though? its a bit shit for the fighter though as hes basically losing the opportunity to get the full purse from the other bidders by allowing his man to put in a pie in the sky bid.

but even $600 k for kid g! good luck to em all.

If I've got this right, and it's possible that I haven't if I'm the only fucker to have heard of it, Warrington (or any fighter in this situation) is entitled to that 60% but he'd have agreed a flat figure with his promorer before the promoter decides what to bid.

As long as Galahad gets his 40% of the bid, and Warrington gets what was agreed, everybody is happy.

At least that's the way it was explained to me years ago. As I said, could be bollocks but seems to make sense to me.

i could imagine it happening for sure but in this example hearn has bidded 938 600$ for him. if warren has made and agreement with warrington for 600k then put in a fantasy bid to effectively block hearn then really hes done him out of 300 odd k. thats not to say its impossible, perhaps its done on the basis of favours owed or an agreement on an upcoming fight, who know eh.....

Wouldn't be totally surprised by this as it kind of makes sense because there has to be a sensible limit to what promotors bid for fights and this seems to be on the limit of good business and madness. Obviously the gate should be big with it being in Leeds and Galahad being a Yorkshire lad adds a bit more rivalry. But beyond the high gate I don't see how this does big numbers on ppv to claw it back and is bt's budget this large for standard shows? I doubt it.

Anyway beside that I think it's a good fight. Will be cheering for Warrington this time as Galahad is a grade A twat. I'm not impressed by Galahad and think that he must have certain limitations beyond what we've seen as he hasn't really done anything and been a pro for a long time now. I'm expecting a comfortable Warrington win with the momentum he currently has and maybe even one of his extremely rare stoppages late on once Barry has been slapped around the ring for 9 rounds or so.
