Hell, if Top Rank had won they probably would've put it here for Taylor's US debut.
    It is humiliating that the #1 in the division is losing purse bids to shiat fighters, for low amounts of money.... Taylor just fought on Sky Sports, PPV, in his last fight.

    Good thing it is going to Scotland, he will gain a crowd there at least, shame he has no control of the promotion though, embarrassing even.

    Embarrassing, Taylor made his bed though bumping off his promoter who brought him from nowhere and signing up with the cartel and their blood stained money.

    Bad move to lose a purse bid for tthe new signing and consensus #1 in the division.

    Embarrassing man... admit it...... I am embarrassed as a Scot and Taylor fan. ffs, admit this is totally humiliating for Taylor..... sitting there with the ring belt and 2 org belts, getting outbid for 1.2 million..... an absolute disgrace.

    Arum probably spent the bulk of the money on signing Taylor and wasn't anticipating having to outbid Sampson Boxing for Taylor's first fight under the Top Rank banner.

    This is bad news..... Taylor should have signed with Hearn or Warren.... built him up in UK before the move state-side.

    TR aren't even willing to put anything in to purse bids against no-names.

    Do not be surprised if Taylor vacates.

    Sampson just signed him not PBC. Sampson has a lot of fighters that aren't with PBC
    There are plenty of fighters signed to a promoter that are also signed to PBC.

    You always fall into this trap of acting like PBC only has one kind of arrangement.

    You think Sampson bid all that money to then try to sell the TV rights back to Top Rank to put the fight on ESPN? You think Sampson is going to sell the fight to DAZN? Where do you think this fight is ending up? Why would Sampson have the confidence to bid that much?

    Sign the fighter and then call for a purse bid and beat Top Rank.

    Thats a power move, by a powerhorse. That powerhorse is PBC/Haymon.
    Sampson signed the fighter, just like he signs a lot of fighters who have never been associated in any way, shape or form with PBC. He was Sergio Martinez' longtime promoter. You think he invested his money so poorly since then that he has to run to his sugar daddy Haymon to win purse bids for low seven figure amounts?
