DeGale won, UD.

117-110 and 114-113 on the other 2 scorecards. Won the last 2 rounds on all 3 cards. Getting the job done, or a very lucky boy who’s lost his edge....

Have yet to watch the fight but I have heard it was close.

Have read didn't look great. Best option for him would be Eubank I guess

Kell took on tougher fights in two of his last 3 that Floyd did in all his career.

Floyd ducked Kell when they were welterweight champs.

Just seen the DeGale fight. He looked decent early on but the tide turned when he got cut from a head clash and the fight became a sloppy affair as the rounds went on. I had DeGale edging it but he could have easily lost that fight. The speed,sharpness, movement and reflexes are attributes that have diminished for DeGale. I don't see him keeping that title beyond two title defences and I think we are seeing a fighter regress visibly in front of our eyes. If I were him, I'd have one more title defence in the UK and then announce his retirement. Groves,Eubank Jr and all the other top guys in the division will beat him.

its a shame to see whats happened to the super middle weight division

this division used to be the creme de la creme of divisions now its awful

there is no one exciting to take this division by the scruff of the neck like AJ is with Heavy or Golovkin is with Middle.

I used to rate de gale and he proves yet again thet hes very solid on foreign soil however as he ages i fear he is not the quality fighter he once was.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hurd is a very large light middleweight and his strength and size alone will cause abundant problems for his opponents. A good slick boxer could beat him, some one like a Lara but for some unfathomable reason, Lara decided to fight on the inside against him and ended up losing. I think Hurd could beat Brook.

He was a worthy champion but the Badou Jack fight took a part of his "soul". He hasn't looked any where near as good since that loss ad physically, his speech has been effected.

So Hearn has supposedly offered Wilder a flat fee of about $12.5 million dollars to take this fight while AJ stands to potentially earn several times that amount if they fight.

Starting to think that Hearn and AJ don't want this fight at all. Even Parker was offered about a 30% split and no way is he a bigger star than Wilder, especially not in the States.

Wilder isn't going to accept that so we're not getting this fight anytime soon, if at all. Pathetic.

Parker got about 3 million mate.

No chance mate. Eddie has said on video that he'll earn around the £12m-15m mark.

Eddie is trying squeeze as much as he can out of the negotiations with Wilder. It's in his interest to understate the purse he paid Parker so he can get Wilder for as little as possible. He said on video we're offering Parker around 15m. Which he said was roughly a 25% split. Can't see the Parker team accepting around 3m.

This is nothing new.

The A side claim the lions share of the proceeds. If Wilder wants the fight, he has to conform to there demands or at the very list, the prominent demands.

Deontay Wilder is the WBC Heavyweight Champion of the World and a very big name in the States. He doesn't have to conform to anyone's demands.

This really doesn't have much to do with A side or B side. It has to do with giving Wilder a fair offer. And a flat $12.5 million dollar offer (if it's true) is not a fair offer if AJ stands to earn much much more than that.

This comment is only relevant if the fight happens in America. In my opinion, it will happen in the UK.

It has everything to do with A/B side. What's fair is totally down to subjective viewpoints. Fair isn't something that is ever considered in situations like this. Wilder may have the WBC belt but AJ has 3 titles and is a worldwide star, these facts matter.

Nothing to do with A or B side. AJ may well be the A side but that doesn't mean that Wilder has to conform to all of AJ's demands as you're saying.

Wilder is the WBC Champ and has the most important and prestigious Heavyweight belt. He's also becoming a huge name in the States, if he isn't already. Facts that certainly matter.

As for AJ being a worldwide star I think that you're overestimating his worldwide fame somewhat. Obviously here in the UK where he fights he's a megastar but don't overestimate his worldwide fame.

AJ's world title unification fight with Parker only got 400,000 views in the US and that was on the equivalent of Freeview TV.

And of course fairness plays a part. If Wilder stands to earn $12.5 million while AJ stands to earn potentially several times that amount then there is no chance that Wilder will accept the fight.

Why would he? That's probably more like a 20/80 split at very best if the fight generates as much as it's expected to.

AJ said he’d take 60-40
