    Have to agree with this. Boxing is a business & money talks loudest of course.
    If fight one is a snoozefest/chessmatch and goes the distance we can't rule out a 'controversial' draw unfortunately. Then onto fight two for the real fight.

    Thats the thing that baffles me tbh, why does it have to be 100million? What if a site offered 80 million, theyd still be getting more than theyd ever earned. Theyve put this arbitary price on it, when really its worth whatever someone is prepared to pay for it.

    Undisputed is on the line in the first fight. That should bring some motivation.
    It won't be for the second fight.

    Adam Partridge is one of the best quotes I’ve read on this forum, well done sir.

    “The bomber tattooed on his back is of course a reference to his potent punch power and not in any way insensitive to the tragedy that unfolded in this area when Ariana Grande performed - Manchester we will never forget”

    If Matthew Macklin was ever late to a commentary gig I can picture Adam walking around the arena carpark looking for him and shouting "Matt ! Mattt ! Matt !............Matt !!!!"

    I don’t understand why you would post something like this?

    it’s like he wants the clock to run down and then he can jump on social media to try and belittle Hearn and Joshua - when in reality it’s that side who’s trying to make it happen.

    I don't think any of them are really trying to make it happen for the near future.

    It’s all silly games to get people talking.. as we are here so shows it’s working.

    Fury’s nutritionist has posted something implying a fight announcement is imminent this week.

    This prediction went about as well as your club’s season.

    What makes you think both sides aren't trying to make it happen ?
    The only difference between Eddie Hearn and Fury's promoters is that Hearn talks a lot more to the media. That doesn't mean his intentions are better, or even good.

    Lots of people on these forums are clearly itching to blame Tyson Fury if this fight isn't made.
    It's weird.

    There should be no doubt that Fury, and Joshua too, would love to get this fight made and get paid and get in the ring and compete.
    It's the promoters and their financiers who are failing the fighters.

    Joshua and Hearn and his team have signed their side of the contract, haven't they, but Fury's side haven't?

    If the fight doesn't happen I'd look forward to seeing Joshua Usyk anyway, while Fury would probably rematch Otto Wallin or fight Carlos Takam (Joshua's leftovers).
