    Why do people like someone who will fight anyone, try as hard as fuck and always throw leather, and has heart for days.....

    I'm not sure.....maybe you can figure that one out

    YouTube stars are headlining over world-champions though if what I've been hearing is true and it's with the exact same promoter in Eddie Hearn. Granted that's expected to do way bigger numbers than this card though.

    Chisora is a big name with boxing fans in the UK and Parker vs Chisora is what is selling this card. It's not Josh Taylor vs Regis Prograis, I can't imagine the card would do anywhere near the number of sales without the HW's. In fact, you could probably remove Taylor and Prograis all together and it'd barely affect the sales. Hence why Chisora is pissed off.

    We Brits tend to like the underdog / eccentric / gutsy / patriot. Winning is a bonus, but secondary.

    Chisora ticks all those boxes, and so sells tickets and has a following.

    I love Del Boy but he acted like a fckin 5 year old. And as much as I’m looking forward to seeing 2 of my favourite heavies duke it out, Taylor vs prograis is potentially one of the best fckin fights of the year. Of course it should headline.

    Can’t wait for both of these fights.

    You’re absolutely spot on pal. They’ll be plenty of sweaties down to see Taylor fight, but everywhere else in the country he’s almost unknown. Disgraceful as he may well be the best boxer we currently have from these shores
    The vast majority of the crowd will likely be semi casual HW boxing fans

    No way should the chisora fight headline though

    The Scots love Taylor but he’s pretty much unknown everywhere else.

    Christa Parker would likely fill a big venue in London as long as there were a couple of decent fights on the undercard.

    I’ve no doubt that Taylor would fill a pretty big venue up in Scotland without Chisora. I think a lot of this is down to where the fight is as well. even though London and the south east is full of sweaties, most paying fans will be there for the HW fight imo
    Chisora still being a dick though

    I don't think the undercard as it is would be enough to sell out the o2. It's not like Okolie is someone people are excited to see.

    That's what he's saying though, he may not be headlining but he's selling the tickets, so pay the man.

    I'm also not saying I agree with his claim to the headline slot, I do think championship fights should headline the card they are on but I can see why he is pissed off. Eddie's all about the money and he's building the headliner's viewer base off the co-mains name value.

    The event is PPV in UK, Chisora is speaking the truth, the fight wouldnt be PPV without him. Nobody knows Regis Prograis he isn't even famous in America.

    I feel bad for Regis dude was put in a random awkward situation with Chisora just ripping him saying he was nobody and cant sell tickets and just a little guy.

    Hearn got quiet real quick because he knows Chisora is speaking the truth, he is using his name to sell Regis vs Taylor, Arum was trying to use a similar tactic with Manny Pacquiao, he was really going to put Pacman on the undercard of a Terence Crawford PPV to help sell the fight using old Pacs name to beef up Crawfords ppv numbers.
