    You're blaming Hearn because no one wants to fight Usyk? Well I suppose if you think the ultimate responsibility for getting opponents lies with the promoter. Sadly I think this bodes very badly for Usyk's time as a HW. He's struggling to get anyone who wants to fight him on his debut, it's only going to get worse once the HW's see that he is a good as advertised.

    I think this and obviously some politics are why it was a shit matchup.

    Dazn wanted him in the usa to get an audience built in but there's no good american hws on their roster. I'd rather have just seen him face Chisora honestly...build up his uk fans for a fight with AJ

    Maybe it's usa because of wilder and ruiz....but pbc rarely seems to mix with the dazn people

    Oh my God, this is the same dude who hurt Seth Mitchell (b/c who doesn't) then proceeded to get bodied. Pull Mitchell's busted knees out of whatever alley he's fighting in and pay him instead.

    It wouldn't be better but it'd be a little less worse.

    Parker pulled out of the Chisora fight right? Thats a proper contest for Usyk.

    Yeah the DAZN vs PBC issue is a problem. Fuck I hate boxing politics.

    Parker was already offered the fight around June and reportedly turned it down.
    Oleksandr Usyk's team provide update on his quest to join the heavyweights

    Here's Parker pretending to want the fight a month later
    Parker: I'd Love To Welcome Oleksandr Usyk To Heavyweight!

    Probably ate a roid sandwich right before testing to make sure he got out of the fight. This never made much sense for Spong other than the fact it was his last chance at a credible opponent in any of the combat sports he competes in but usyk is not the big name people here are making him out to be, beating Usyk right now is only impressive for us who love boxing but no one outside really knows who he is. Usyk himself needs to fight a credible opponent in HW to get people talking about him and put him in the fury, wilder, Ruiz, Joshua, Ortiz conversation. Beating Spong did absolutely nothing for him and Spong was fucked the moment he signed it
