Emcee Michael Buffer has jumped ship, and gone from being a freelancer, to being exclusive to Matchroom and DAZN, and Eddie Hearn.
The smooth-lunged man was in London for the Anthony Joshua-Alexander Povetkin weigh in, the day before their faceoff at Wembley Stadium.
Buffer said that he’s done most of AJ’s fight, and also many of Povetkins’—the “Let’s Get Ready To Rumbler” said he was a “free agent for 36 years” but he’s never been contracted to a promoter or network.
We talked also about the changes within the sport; with HBO seeming to be on the wane, perhaps even leaving the sphere, and how Top Rank and Bob Arum have masterflly moved with the times.
