    Nice addition to an undercard that I think will be poor by PPV standards.

    Mathews is ringworn now.davies will never have a better chance to make a statement.

    I think especially early on Matthews is gonna bring it and will make it difficult for Davies. Later he will probably struggle. He will be very motivated for this.

    Would prefer to see Davies vs Nurse tbh, Derry gets battered.

    Don't think they want Davies in with anyone that moves while he's still so raw, if Nurse boxed in the way he's capable of on the back foot he'd make Davies look very basic.

    I wouldn't rule Derry out completely, he's well past his best at this point but he can still whack and Davies isn't the best defensively, if he leaves himself open as he comes forward Derry's more than capable of taking him out, been written off a lot of times before and proved people wrong.

    Shame to see people dismiss the fight

    This is natural progression for a prospect.matchmaking has to be careful but ambitious if you are to develop a champion.

    Mathews will be Davies best opponent to date by some margin.not sure who else they could have matched him with that would be better and realistic.

    I like it. Mathews is better than Scarpa.

    I rate Davies but he comes across as an absolute arsehole so hopefully Mathews can land a good punch

    I think Davies is very insecure. He seemed to get the hump as people rightly criticised his performance as being dull v Scarpa.Most of it was constructive as well.

    Ohara is too big and strong and will stop Matthews inside three rounds.

    got to be mathews final fight, last top up for the retirement fund. you would have to think that after 50 fights hes made a few quid. been great to watch over the years.

    this is hearn testing ohara, big venue, big night, recognisable name. hes going to be expected to put on a good performance to make the card look good and a 12 round boring points win wont look good for him long term.

    I wouldnt be sure about a stoppage. Davies seemed pretty comfortable and happy boxing Scarpa to a points win, even though he seemed more than capable of stopping him. I guess Derry will keep coming to him so he might have to open up more though.

    I think Eddie will be drumming it into him if he wants a future as a big player with Sky and Matchroom he needs to entertain.

    there isn't a boxer whose career i have followed as much as haye. and yet i can't decide whether haye losing or ohara winning would be worst.
