    Answers on a stamp, will they fight next, yes or no?

    I’m going no.

    The WBO president has reinstated the mando will be called next, no exceptions, as they’ve made 2 already in the Ruiz rematch, and then Pulev

    If AJ pull counters the way he did v Pulev`s jab and counters with the right hand he could drop Fury the same way he dropped Pulev in the third because Fury over extends when he throws the jab, I feel it will be a tight cagey fight.
    AJ will have to contantly slip to the outside of Fury`s jab:

    I think the key is fans. Joshua vs Fury doesn’t happen without a full capacity stadium. Whether that means it’s in the Middle East or something...

    If not then Joshua Usyk is a top quality and intriguing fight and would assume we get Fury Wilder 3 although I’d prefer Fury against someone else seen as though it was so convincing last time.

    The WBO mando was called before the IBF so they can't back down now. I called it at the time they would wait Usyk out and in serious decline, now I think they might fancy it.

    There are only 2 options available for the next AJ fight.

    Fury for the Undisputed is the obvious fight.

    However, the WBO are quite rightfully now demanding that Usyk is the next fight for Joshua as he is Mando.

    I think Fury, despite his little video outburst in the early hours claiming he is ready now, will either be tied up with the Wilder confusion / contract situation or will take a warm up fight paving the way for AJ v Usyk mando in April / May followed by the 1st of the 2 Fury fights around November with the return in the Spring of 2022.

    Fury is not taller than 201cm. and Joshua is likely 197cm. Listings mean nothing. Pulev is listed at 194cm when he is not over 191cm.

    Joshua will lose and then win the rematch vs usyk next year. Fury-joshua in 2022 at the earliest

    Point is, slipping and countering Pulevs jab is not comparable to doing the same thing to Fury.

    No, AJ refused to call him out and kept going on about always fighting his mandatories, WBO already came out today and said they wont give him an exemption for the fury fight. all in place to use his mandatory (Usyk) to get out of it.

    Ruiz took AJ's soul, they know Fury will end him so delaying it as long as possible

    Won't happen next. Joshua's arsehole was flapping when he spoke on Fury.

    Joshua v A. Pudding more likely than fighting Fury, Usyk or Wilder
