Default Re: Fury v Chisora Nov 22nd in London

Fury fights twice or three times a year tops- Channel Five have shown four shows this year already so that should not be an issue.

I worry about Fury's career at this point- he's locked into a contract that he and his team do not seem to like and does not look to be in a good place mentally. You have to wonder if he'd have stayed with Hennessey full time would his outlook be better- sure he'd be fighting in smaller venues but at least he'd be busy. The Boxnation/Fury tie up is rather odd.

Id be very surprised if either Derek or Tyson box again this side of 2015.

Tyson may knock out a bum as a warm up/ring appearance, but aside from that, I agree.

He won't because Frank clearly wants him to fight Chisora and then fight Wlad on Boxnation.

You have to ask yourself if it's actually beneficial for Chisora or Fury to fight each other or to fight fringe contenders until the fight with Wlad materialises. Chisora has been rather quiet recently.

He isn't going to grow a profile/ increase his casual fan base (which makes the real money) fighting on a subscription boxing channel which at last count in September had 120k subscribers (400k at all time according to FW in an interview a while ago). His fights would get an easy million on c5 so that'd be a much better move
have they really got 120k subscribers? That's got to be viable at a basic revenue of 1.2M/month

It's nearer 50k I'd imagine. The lack of domestic action shows the channel isn't doing brilliantly.

There was an article in the independent form September 2013 that had it at 120k, can't imagine it being much more than that so use that as an absolute top line figure

Can't ever see Wlad ever boxing Chisora cos his bro already beat him so he's had his chance, so can only imagine Fury having the only realistic chance of getting the shot.

I still can't see Chisora v Fury happening again and by then even if it does happen Wlad will have another two opponents jump the Q in front of them so the whole thing in my opinion is a waste of time. Googley trying his best to hype it as an eliminator but he's the only one that thinks it.

If Tyson dont box this year that would be 2 fights in two years that is shabby activity for a young contender

To be honest,I think he's got to take Ustinov if anybody. I don't think he bottled it,but he's got to get that particular monkey off his back. I can see Del out for the rest of the year,so if Tyson is over his considerable personal stuff,he should put that one right or it will hang over him. But Ill stick by my prediction.

Klitschko Manager Bernd Bonte said recently they're looking forward to fighting the winner of Fury vs. Chisora, no matter who wins. They're after the British TV money.
