    It is believed an all-British clash in the desert will not happen until the end of 2020 or the start of 2021, but what does this suggest about Wilder? I read this article in te sun newspaper.

    The sun is a trash newspaper. Fury has moved stateside, he's promoting himself well over there.

    A few days ago I read that Joshua wants Wilder win or lose (I have no issue with this, it's a good move from Joshua imo to test himself against Wilder before Fury)

    There's no negotiations going on right now, that'd be silly.

    Plus for such a big fight Saudi is horrible. The atmosphere is beyond a joke. No Alcohol = No atmosphere. This **** should not be encouraged.

    Vegas baby.

    Hearn told

    : “The government here don’t invest in bringing mega-events to the UK - they don’t necessarily need to.


    “They’ve got a Premier League football game every weekend, selling 50,000-80,000 [tickets].

    Yeah, agreed. It won't be in the UK.

    It'll be in the states.

    Saudi Arabia trying to sport wash their image. Did we all forget they killed a us journalist? A criminal regime that is being legitimized by these events. Now I boycott PPV and Saudi fights.

    I don't really have a problem with this, though I would prefer it in the UK. Every fighter has a right to make money wherever they like. Political judgments about certain countries hosting events are disingenuous. It's often a poor excuse to express raw bigotry. We make judgements when it comes to countries we don't like but not for countries we like / live in.

    Saudi Arabia is easily the most evil country on Earth.

    Let's not throw stones if you live in a glass house...

    Any decade in human history and you can bring up dirt on America. Let's not forget that.
    As a brief refresh, can you remember who assisted with the Nazis and later hid them in their own country?

    Everyone else does.

    How's that throwing stones? I'm not American If it's fine with you I understand, you're in the majority. Myself, I can't ignore it given the present world we live in. The Nazis used the olympics to legitimize themselves to the world also. I am familiar with operation paperclip. I read a book! America does some ****ty things too, Trump having just assassinated a dude to distract from his impeachment trial. Banana republic sums up foreign policy quite well. Maximize earning potential while disregarding all else is a ****ty attitude. It's just never enough for some. I only have 6 rolls royce phantoms, not even one for every day of the week! Guys like Joshua could leave boxing now or before the saudi fight and never have to worry about working for a living ever again, as long as he doesn't want a new g5 every other year. What's the average yearly wage in the states? 75k per year? I think that's being generous, but lets say 75k / year over 30 years were not even nearing 3 million before taxes. Nah, the big stars have enough money and the journeymen aren't making bank no matter where they fight and ignoring evil wherever it may reside doesn't work out in the long run.
