    It’s a big if. Fury has played with him for 2 fights. He’s mentally broken now too, will be even easier.

    Seems to me that Wilder has only found a pair of bollocks once Fury v AJ was as good as done. Until now, he’s been completely awol, irrelevant and pretty much a laughing stock.

    Yes you can, and no, I don't think Wilder is in the right at all.

    There is some revisionist history going on here regarding Wilder. After being beaten up by Fury (same Fury who very clearly outboxed him in fight 1, coming back from 27 stone weight, drug and alcohol addiction) Wilder disappeared of the face of the earth.

    When he did re-appear he couldn't face his defeat like a man, he blamed his coach, blamed his stupid costume, and embarrassed himself by making ridiculous allegations regarding glove tampering. He made a fool of himself. He then stalled, gave no clear indication of what he was doing, and disappeared again. He had not weeks, but months post Feb 2020 to commit to a re-match. He did not.

    It was, as has been correctly pointed out by other posters only when Fury rightly took steps to get other fights that Wilder again threw his toys out of the pram. The time frame for a re-match had expired, he couldn't take the fact Fury was moving on which he had every right to do.

    As for the claim it could not take place due to the pandemic- sorry that's rubbish. There have been multiple world title fights, featuring the biggest names in boxing during the pandemic. Canelo and AJ, boxings two mega stars have BOTH had fights during the pandemic, both without a crowd, both during 2020.

    This is a civil arbitration at this stage, so it's not beyond the point of no return at all. Let's see what happens, I am not giving up on this fight yet...

    Fury should sue him for all that nonsense he spoke.

    Maybe but the more obvious answers are either

    1. Wait for the arbitration result


    2. Wait for them to agree and pretty mich get free money.

    But lets be honest, this isnt about Wilder , Fury or AJ, its about Haymon.

    Men in suits ruin this sport. I have zero doubt all 3 would jump in with the other tomorrow if they could.

    Mate, go and watch the second fight again. Wilder landed some big right hands in the first 2-3 rounds and he also hurt Fury once or twice. Writing off a man with that kind of power is ridiculous.

    Yes, I expect Fury to win, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Wilder wins by KO.

    here’s 3 main scoring shots from Wilder in the first few rounds. Start of the first and 2nd and the end of the 2nd. They’re pretty slow and Fury is moving back at the time, if you think he was hurt by any of them then I’m sorry mate but you’re looking for things which aren’t there.

    Well it's one way to end Usyk at HW...

    If AJ goes to Plan B, Usyk will get his title shot next.

    Whyte is 1-1 since 2019. That doesn’t call for an immediate title shot. Joyce is and should be further down the road anyway.

    Joyce has had a dozen fights for goodness sake. He’ll keep.

    Just to clarify, is that the Usyk that struggled with Chisora, or a different one ??

    Usyk hardly breezed through the Delboy fight... It's hard to see him beating Whyte, nevermind AJ.

    Yes, AJ looks particularly bulky again at this point and is unlikely to be particularly quick and likely to gas, but the same accusations are even more true of Dereck and AJ holds considerably more power, better combos and times shots better.

    I honestly can't see much chance for Usyk even against a less than ideal version of AJ.

    Usyks gotta go up levels and develop genuine stopping power to make serious waves at HW.

    Although i agree i think youre a tad harsh on Usyk. He beat Chisora in a fairly straight forward manner and almost had him gone at one point. Whyte struggled like crazy with hin twice and lost the first one in many peoples eyes.
    Usky was massivly inactive and coming back from a bad Injury so it wasnt a bad performance.

    Having said that i think AJ is a step too far for him and Usyk is on his way down imo, he peaked a few years ago.
