Katie Taylor in a mismatch as well but you get my point.
It's her second pro fight, not everyone is a Lomachenko to be fighting for a world title in their second fight lol.
I just feel that if I'm going to fork out near 20 pounds for a night of boxing I want at least 75 per cent to be competitive. Why can't Ortiz Quigg Smith fight their bums on non ppv cards? why do they have to fill up so much of this ppv card? Who exactly wants to see Ortiz beat up a Southern area level opponent, I would much rather that not happen and he fight someone decent in the new year.
Clearly you disagree, but for me, I haven't seen much of Ortiz so to add him to the card is a positive. If I'm paying £17 for a card I'd rather see these fighters on it than not? I get the point about saving them for bigger fights, but (regarding Ortiz) it also makes sense to build a fighter's profile before you put them in the big fights.
There were plenty of options for AJ-Duhapas, Haye , Takam , Parker etc. And yes I know that they are all in fights now but Hearn showed no interest in fighting these danger men at all before they all got fights. Oh and come on, your'e not seriously telling me the Wlad fight was going to happen. It was all a scheme to get hype for Joshua
They wanted Parker to fight Price on AJ's undercard to build the AJ fight, but Parker decided to go down the WBO route against Ruiz Jr (which makes perfect sense as that's a much easier fight for him than AJ). Regardless, if Parker really wants AJ I'm sure there could be a unification down the line (assuming he beats Ruiz).
I'm not so sure about Haye, he kind of bottled it against Briggs, then there was the whole WBA ****-up where I think Haye was waiting to see who he was fighting. I don't really have much of a preference between Duhaupas and Molina, think they're pretty equal fighters.
You're completely wrong about the Wlad fight, he got injured so he couldn't fight on Dec 10th, that's why AJ had to settle with Molina in the end (the prolonged negotiations are also why the fight date shifted from Nov 26th to Dec 10th - to give them more time to promote the fight if it was made). You genuinely don't believe AJ will fight Wlad in early 2017? Unless Wlad bottles it, I'm 100% sure that fight will be announced shortly after Dec 10th. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
