    DAZN have truly taken off now. Canelo v Saunders Highlights has been trending #1 on DAZNs YouTube channel. They will strike while the iron is hot and ensure they keep Canelo.

    Plenty to work with for the rest of the Matchroom stable too. Andrade v Jacobs anyone?
    Andrade vs Jacobs won't happen...

      What standard? Hearn doesn't have much of a US stable so it's a reasonable question.

        The Matchroom goons will come after you for this one.

        Their roster is very top heavy. They have some stars but lacks depth like you said. It’ll be interesting to see whether they can bring guys like Plant over to DAZN or whether Canelo moves elsewhere as it seems Eddie wants to build the US stable around Canelo. Without Canelo they don’t really have anyone of interest in the US. Guys like Jacobs, Andrade, Bivol etc are good fighters but they don’t move the needle.

          I agree, I could see him getting a Pacquiao type deal when he worked with Haymon/PBC. 2-3 fights or even fight by fight. His DAZN options are pretty limited now unless they do GGG 3.

            We know Beterbieve fight isn't next,neither is Smith rematch who would lose badly anyways
            There are some decent LHW's but none signed with Matchroom. Rumor is that they're going to get Zurdo/Bivol next, but I'll believe it when I see it.

            Looks like Top Rank is gunning for Beterbiev/Smith next, which is fantastic.

              Golden Boy might move their crew to Triller so who knows? Maybe they don't even bother letting Zurdo fight Bivol.

                GGG is likely after Plant. Likely for May 2022.
