Thats spot on but I would have more respect for fw if he just came out and said he was doing it because he will make a shed load of money rather than try and make out he is doing it for some moral reason.

The scuffle was all over the news and daytime TV it has that mess media crossover appeal but, yeah, its strange that a lot of boxing fans showed little interest up until that point but are now keen.

That said, personalities sell fights as much as anything else and there are less interesting fights out there getting made every week.

Bingo!

Nobody gave a flying shit before the childish scuffle.

Remember when Haye 'retired' and so many on here were saying there is no point him fighting the likes of Fury and Chisora as they're below him.

Suddenly the crap in Germany and everyone is saying its the biggest fight in boxing right now! Are they serious?

BBBofC messed up. But to act as if ****** is some sort of crusader is just stupid.

People are still seething that the BBBoC wouldn't alllow the Enzo Maccarinelli-Ezra Sellers fight to go ahead a few years ago. ***** had had Sellers body dug up especially for the mismatch.

The people have spoken! All the polls said 70%+ want to see the fight! So the BBBc & the rest of the bitchy squealing tarts can go **** off. All these santimonious yelpers can sit at home watching eastenders or some other dirge whilst the jollyboys have a jolly good time watching this fight live or on boxnation & it's a definate that these whining spunk monkeys will be discreatly tuning in But they'll not have the ball's to come on here & admit it

WBO???

I think you mean the WBA; that was when the Duff et al cartel was broken in British boxing. Then 'ol' fish eyes', hit them with a double whammy of making them back down with the IBF as well; when 'Crap Shot' Terry Marsh got his title crack.

Since then Chisora beat Helenius in most people's eyes and argubly did better against Vitaly than Haye did against Vladamir. He's a legitimate opponent for Haye.
