What do you think the value is? ‘ Then you go back to the boxers and give them the number, and their answer is always ‘what?’

“But you know what, we made the fight between Mikey Garcia
Y Jessie vargas”, He explained Hearn. “That was at a different time, where we were extremely aggressive and probably paying the wrong money for the fights. But I like it Mikey Garcia-Regis Prograis. I think it’s a good fight. ”

“It has to be added to the schedule of the other fights that we have planned, other obligations that we have with the current boxers, instead of types that you do not have under contract, and that has to be the priority,” he said. “But I can’t lie to you and tell you that I’m not interested. I think it’s a fun fight, it just goes with the value of the fight. Nobody is going to agree with the value ”.
