If I felt i was world champion material, id go America or Eddie Hearn. Big dollars lie in America and if i was that good, i could start building a fan base from an earlier stage. That said, I like the tradional British, Commonwealth, European route to a world title. Hearn has the backing of Sky. Hearn takes more risks than Frank Warren. If Cleverley was with Hearn, no way would he have fought Hawk and Carpency. If Burns was with Hearn, no way would he have been slated to face Cook or Walsh. GBP or Hearn.

If i was a crap fighter likely to end up journeyman, id go Hearn just cos he seems like he mates with his fighters, where as Warren splits always end up in court.

Agreed, no way any other promoter put Froch in with Bute after the Ward loss.

Well, if a big American promoter such as GBP or TR came to me and offered me the cash, I'd be over there in a flash.

If not, then I'd go with Warren, I know Hearn is popular and rightfully so, plus he has the big Sky contract but I'd love to be able to fight more regularly and build a real following, which could happen with more regular shows in a net work like Boxnation.

I'd sign a contract probably lasting 3 years or so, get in as many fights as possible, build myself up as an attraction (which Warren is really good at) and then when I'm on the verge of big things, move over to Sky and Hearn.

With GBP coming to the UK I'd definately go in that direction. Big exposure both sides of the pond. I'm sure GBP will try and have there fighters on sky in the UK.

It would have to be Hearns i think. Seems to have no hesitation putting his fighters in risky fights. He also seems to do a good job of getting fighters into mandatory positions for title fights.

Warren always seems to fall out with his fighters and end up in court, and can sometimes appear to hold his fighters back.

From a exposure point of view..Hearn's has Sky Sports which is big. Boxnation for Warren is a great tool, maybe not as much as Sky though.
Fair play to Mick Hennessy though for getting Boxing back on terrestrial TV, that could be a pull for fighters.

I'd go for Hearns..although with Golden Boy looking to sign up British fighters and put on cards over here, they would be hard to turn down if they came knocking.
The exposure they could give you on here and over in America would be a real deal breaker.

Looks like we've got our answer.....Groves and Burns switched camps from Warren to Hearn. Cleverley odds-on to go next, but maybe to Henessey?

Ok, with the recent implosion of Warren's stable and thus a declining viewership of BoxNation, I change my mind. Originally I was on the edge and leaning towards Warren simply because of his own tv channel but now I'd go for Haern, no doubt.

Pretty crazy how Hearn has been allowed to single-handedly take over UK boxing unopposed. He had pretty much nobody before Froch.
