    I don’t think anyone said that, but technically the July date he went public with turned out to be wrong. There was clearly some more negotiations needed hence why it looks like it’ll be August.

    All you've been saying is "Fury don't want it, Fury don't want it !" :lol:
    Eddie Hearn came out ages ago and said "Fury definitely wants it".
    But all you've been saying is "Fury don't want it, Fury don't want it !"

    I said Hearn talks shite, because every week or so he's been saying "expect an announcement next week", "it's almost done". That went on for months, so Hearn was kind of talking ****. I had my doubts that he'd found the money, but I was hoping it was legit.

    I've always been hopeful of the fight being made. I give full credit to Hearn.
    I've said for the last 5 months that BOTH FIGHTERS WANT IT - why wouldn't they ? Everyone involved has been confirming that.
    But all you've been saying is "Fury don't want it, Fury don't want it !" :lol:

    Let's just hope the fight takes place on August 14th, and we get to see a great fight. No need for any more negativity.

    When has Tyson EVER asked to see the money until now? It's took so long because of him.

    Wants to see the money, wants a tune up etc. Bottle job.

    How would I know that ? Do you have an answer to that ? In boxing, it's normal to make sure you're going to get paid. I would certainly want lawyers and advisers around me who are dilligent in these matters, esp. if we're talking about £50 million or £100 million paydays. Wouldn't you ? It's perfectly reasonable. It's good to be sceptical of "100 million offers", surely, and the get cast iron assurances.

    You're the only one claiming that. None of the parties involved are claiming that about Fury. You are consistent in blaming Fury at every opportunity. It's very strange.

    So you don't think the fight is happening ?

    To be fair i would want to see the money also, plus Fury has history of being unsure if he is getting paid, take the gloves are off interview with Wlad, where he turns to John Rawling i think, and says we are getting paid aren't we???

    I find it baffling after what will be a 19 month lay off come fight night Fury is taking this fight next.

    I always fancied Fury to beat Joshua, however, after the long lay off and he looks very fleshy I think Joshua will do a number on him. I don't think Fury's legs are what they were and I think he knows that, hence the game plan against Wilder.

    Truth about the Tyson Fury & Anthony Joshua sparring session (Listen from 8 minute mark onwards) Fury asked AJ to fight outside and Joshua SHAT himself lol. 9 minute mark for the sparring story (AJ with his leg up in the corner HAHAHA LOL)

    Doesn't have to be that way man, it's just greed. No one should pay for it if its in Saudi Arabia. As if 50 million or whatever isn't enough for the fighters, its ridiculous. Continue to pander to the fighter's greed and watch boxing as a sport continue to get worse.

    Tyson didn't do it with his ESPN contract...

    Tyson has spouted about a Wilder trilogy more than an AJ fight, and his promoters have been negative about it.

    Who knows?

    The reality is despite Hearn and his ridiculous BS, AJ has yet to sign off on the deal either.

    Eddie saying AJ is frustrated with Fury is just spin - the financials are not set yet, which he admitted.

    Apart from that, we have the small matter of the arbitration ruling next week - clearly the decision on this will decide whether Fury -AJ can go ahead.

    This is dragging on too long. If your a mandatory challenger to any of these belts you going to be pissed. If they can’t get the guarantee from Saudi they need to move on to somewhere else

    Exactly, who knows. Certainly not a few guys on Boxing24Forum that’s for sure.

    It feels though that despite not knowing the facts - you’ve created a narrative and are sticking to it.
