    Interesting. Looks like GRJ has put some thought into this. He is willing to do what Wilder wasnít.

    That being said I wouldnít mind the move. Move up and fight Berchelt. If he beats him then he can unify with Ito and then move up for the loma rematch. Would be two of the three biggest fights of his career.

    Even if he hung out at 126 for a bit he could unify with Valdez and fight Frampton. Lots of good options at espn for him.

    I would say he has good options at pbc but mares and Santa Cruz have been there for years and he hasnít been able to get them.

        There seems to be a format now in how to publicly speak regarding a PBC fighters status. From what I recall, this sounds just like what Wilder said before he re-upped with PBC. It is a recruitment pitch to inception other non-PBC fighters to joining PBC. We will hear GRJ announce a lucrative Fox/Showtime/whatever PBC-fight deal.

              Reading all this, how come Hearn and DAZN aren't swooping in to snatch up Russell? Russell would sign 10 fights for 5 million in total, same amount they were offering Davis for one fight.

                wilder basically used espn and then DAZN to drive up and force Haymon to pay him more. That could be what happens here too.

                I mean he says he wants the big fights but a Leo Santa Cruz fight coulda happened 3-4 years ago and still hasnít. Or Mares. Or Frampton when he was pbc or Selby etc.

                    yes hes making more than he used to but hes still making far less than he would have if he didnt duck joshua so i dont really understand his plan. not sure what haymons plan is either since guys that fight on regular showtime dont normally make 10 million a fight so wilder is playing haymon and haymon is playing showtime whose numbers have been horrible lately. im sure they are happy with all this
