Kambosos dude only managed one significant win, SD against Mickey Bey. Expecting a snoozer. Selby is boring unless he fights someone that will press him, and if going BoxRec warrior is correct, I can't imagine it's this guy.

I'd like to see some confirmation of actual fights on actual dates.

The delays are inevitable, but some fight news would be good too.

MTK are doing shows from July, and they do things efficiently, so wouldn't surprise me if they are first to confirm.

DiBella said he was surprised that Hearn bid an amount that requires him to pay their side more than the original deal.

“Explain the logic other than Eddie being an ass… He had us for a $150,000 package all in. Then he asks for a big cut. I said f— that, I’ll take it to purse bid and do the fight in Australia. I said to Eddie, ‘Why are you making us go to a bid, making me give the IBF (a non-refundable fee of) $5,000 and going through all this bulls—? He doesn’t answer and we go to bid. I bid $260,000, a man of my word, a figure that would have given George even more than we had signed for and he bids $277,777.

“It makes no sense. I guess this is what you do when you brag about being rich… you do stupid sh–. And we were not busting his balls about the (October 3) date. Now he has us for even more than the $150,000 we agreed to originally. Thank you. I congratulated him.”

Hearn rejected DiBella’s logic that the fight will now cost him more money than before because he can certainly make a side deal with Selby that would rein in costs with Selby still having home advantage.

“It doesn’t cost me more,” Hearn said. “Maybe I got Selby cheaper.”

He could have got Selby cheaper and still paid Kambosos the lower amount per the original agreement. Man's a fucking cretin.

Fair play to Kambosos for calling their bluff. He has gone from originally being offered $150,000 to turning down the reduced offer of $100k to ending up with around $165,000. A win at the negotiating table is one thing but I suspect he will need a stoppage or a shutout to get the W.
