With the wilder fight which I predicted to be a one sided beat down.  the Alvarado- rios fight mightl be a close call.  Not  making a prediction till, i see more recent training vids and until  I see them an hour before the fight.  This fight is purely based on who has the more heart and determination on the day.

Both look shadows of their former selves but for me Mike is completely done and hasn't got enough left to get on his toes and outbox Rios. Only one winner when these to go to war so got to fancy Rios.

Alvarado looks to have some serious lifestyle problems, hope he can deal with it as his boxing fame/money fades away now.

no reason why not if its a PPV. There's talk of JMM even, Rios would be much cheaper it would be the only sniff of a belt he's getting any time soon. Rios picked up less than $1 million on saturday...Hearn has already paid bigger purses to Groves, Kessler and Bute as opponents.
Report joe9000 January 27, 2015 3:21 PM GMT
Rios got guaranteed $4 mill for the pacman fight, Hearn ain't paying even half that. Plus is plenty of fights for him in US for more money and less travel, he ain't worried bout belts either, just wants the cash.

As for the JMM fite, looks like he's thinking Wembley by looks of it. Hard sell that imo. Plus, there is the obvious drug testing hurdle.
Report alabaster crashes down January 27, 2015 4:28 PM GMT
Rios can't make anywhere near that sort of money against anyone not named Pac or Floyd...neither of which is going to happen.

He got 900k on saturday, 925k against chaves, 1.25 mill for alvarado 2, 850k for Alvarado 1, 450k for Abril

With PPV and a sold out MEN or Bramhall Lane Hearn could easily offer Rios £2 million sterling (same as Kessler got for a PPV that only did 250k views) That's over 3 million dollars. Who can he fight in the USA for even half that??? Never mind the fact that he would have a good chance of picking up the belt and earning big money off that in his final few fights.

I'm not saying it definitely will happen but if they're determined to have a big PPV fight at home this summer and khan doesn't want it then there are very few possible names and Rios is one of the more likely.

I can't see JMM happening at all but Nacho has made a few comments about it so who knows maybe the belt means a lot to him.

You seem to be missing the most important factor of a possible Brook Rios fight though....ur average casual wudn't know who Rios was if they were locked in a phonebox with him.

"Who can he fight in the USA for even half that???" Ortiz, Bradley, Chaves rematch...
Report alabaster crashes down January 27, 2015 5:28 PM GMT
sj I don't know why you struggle with that when he's done it twice in the last two years with Kessler and Groves.

Joe, Rios is going to get a career high purse by some way against ****g Ortiz, Chaves or being the B-side against Bradley in a non title bout? ok.

I'll grant you that Rios is hardly a household name but I'm not sure that matters...a former Manny opponent, Exciting style, genuinely good fight...they could easily sell enough PPV's to cover the purses. Even a very conservative 250k buys = £4million + £2million on the gate etc etc.

Clearly they are desperately hoping the Khan fight comes off, but if it doesn't they have two choices...give up home advantage go over to America and lose all their revenue streams or put on a big PPV fight to make up for missing out on Khan.

So who could they bring over?

Thurman - zero chance of Haymon allowing his hot prospect over.
JMM - Drugs, huge purse would probably mean gambling they could sell out Wembley or Old Trafford. Semi-retired anyway.
Bradley - possible but tough fight and expensive
Maidana - maybe, doesn't seem interested though

If they want to fight at home they are pretty limited
Report alabaster crashes down January 27, 2015 5:33 PM GMT
the two million figure was pretty much off the top of my head as what could be affordable btw, it might not even take that much for Rios considering that would be triple what he could get fighting someone else at home.

Yeah but your first post was "not a chance in hell Hearn pays the sort of money required to get Rios over"...if you agree that it would take in the region of £2 million to get someone like Rios over how exactly is that possible without PPV?

For me that is what PPV is for and if it was soley used in those circumstances I wouldn't have any objections to it. I'd rather pay £17 and see the fight than not see it at all.

Haymon has just paid NBC $20 million for blocks of airtime you really think there isn't a PPV pay off at the other end of that? He's making a huge investment and and the end of it there'll be a subscription to pay.

I think Barry has pulled off a masterstroke getting the ITV deal today but the finances of that fight are much smaller and he's clearly using his own fame to play a long game, that will probably culminate in PPV.

Hey, fair play if Barry can get a terrestrial network to start stumping up multi millions for fight purses, it would be brilliant for the game, but in this age of fragmented advertising revenues I very much doubt it. It's pointless comparing the modern era, with all it's distractions competing for your money, with the situation just 20 odd years ago when you had 20 million people sitting round a 4-channel TV on a Saturday night.

yeah just watched the interview, no interest in Rios at all it seems, shame I like that fight.

JMM is obviously a great fight too though. I guess Maidana is more credible than Rios in reality but it doesn't appeal as much to me personally...I really wanted to see how Kell reacted when Rios turned up the heat in the pocket. Brook would probably be able to clinch away Maidana's wild aggression the same way he did Porters, I think Rios would be whipping them uppercuts and hooks on the inside all night long and Kell might find himself in Carson Jones situation with a much superior fighter.
Report tobermory January 28, 2015 3:41 AM GMT
I couldn't see anyone as slow as Rios troubling Brook at all . An over the hill John Murray gave Rios a competitive fight .

As for Brook on PPV , if Hearn puts Cleverly/Bellew II PPV , Brook vs almost anybody could concievably be on Box Office .

I agree though that it shouldn't take too much money to bring a fringe of world class American over here ..... i read Devon Alexander was paid 30k for fighting Khan Surprised
Report alabaster crashes down January 28, 2015 7:52 AM GMT
If Carson Jones can have Brook having kittens then I'm pretty sure Rios poses him some questions tobe, not saying he'd lose necessarily but it would definitely be a possibility. Murray - Rios was competitive in the sense that Murray ended up looking like he'd been run over by a tractor. Anyway it aint happening by the sounds of it.

Devon was paid $600k for the khan fight mate dunno where you read that? As a rule of thumb double it to get him across the atlantic? So £800k sterling for Devon Alexander to come over..could they cover that without PPV...yeah probably at a push if they had to but they'd be ****g mad to the fight means nothing.

It doesn't take too much to bring a fringe world class fighter across the water...that's why they're bringing Jo Jo Dan over and putting it on regular sky.

Who would you honestly have him fight after that that would cost peanuts?

Soto Karass?
Josesito Lopez?

If he ends up fighting that level of opponent most will moan. It's a clear choice....fight average fare at home on SKY 1, go to America,  or put it on PPV to get a Maidana, JMM over.

Brook isn't a PPV star. I'm not exactly sure what part of that you find hard to understand. Is Brook Khan a definite PPV fight, yes of course.

There seems to be this "all roads lead to PPV" strategy from Matchroom of late. As SJ says, to even joke that Brook Gavin cud ever be PPV is outrageous, nevermind that Hearn was fully serious wen he said it ffs.

There is a handful of Fighters who are genuinely PPV fighters worldwide. We don't want a situation where we are goin down the road of Poland or Australia for example where even total joke fights are PPV.

If GGG isn't on PPV yet, and Hopkins Kovalev wasn't a PPV fight, that tells its own story.

Do you want Brook to fight lesser opponents?

I completely agree re the Australia PPv situation, that's why I was on here completely slagging off Bellew-Clev.

For the PPV debate it's fair to say that Brook/Rios would be reasonable compared to PPVs generally . And preferable to Brook v AN Other on regular sky sports . I guess the concern people have is that Hearn might think he can put Brook v AN Other on Box Office . Certainly worrying if he sees Frankie Gavin as a potential PPV, someone with zero momentum and who has been involved in some of the dullest fights ever televised .

As I said in the other thread Brook-Gavin is a bullshit fight but Im not dead against it because its just a keep busy for Kell and hopefully will be the end of Gavin...but why on earth would they put it top of the bill though?

It's actually a very good card, well more like 3 good cards shoehorned into one. I can well believe they're getting more stick than they did for Clev-Bellew, it's annoyed me more too tbh cos for that one I could accept that the Brook injury had forced their hand...this is clearly the model now though, serve up **** on the regular shows and then overload a card with "good" fights once every few months for PPV. I'm not a fan of that model at all, for a start it becomes a hard slog watching 6 hours of fights, inevitably the fights lower down the card lose their lustre.

My fave Matchroom development is that Joshua has now been turned into some gap plugger when cards collapse. Got pulled onto the Newcastle card to "save" that, now he's had to go on the Brum card.

As you say this model is totally the wrong way to be going. Selby and Mitchell shud be headling their own shows in Wales and London, Brook shudn't be fighting Gavin anywhere.

All these hours later and the reaction to this card is not in anyway turning, so overwhelmingly negative. Like you say, stacked cards like this are agony to watch cos of the length and the earlier fights which on this card r very decent, cud be crackers on a much later regular saturday nite slot.
