    Nah mate, the OP was about how little the fight had been promoted as it's so close, which is a valid observation. Then it was derailed, as usual, by lots of imaginary willy waving on behalf of whether Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua has sold more tickets or pay per view buys and who is more popular, like it matters. Now that's boring.

    I'm interested in the fight, the boxing match, as it's against two top heavyweights. Couldn't care less about how many 'numbers' it does, and neither should anyone apart from those making the filthy lucre.

    Not interested either way as to who is getting what, couldn't care less.

    These superstars need to get rid of their designer chihuahuas and start actually fighting...

    If not it will all be gone before they know it...

    You can only compare with what we have. Fury is comfortably the 2nd biggest boxing star in the UK. Even you, as someone who doesn't like him, can admit that i'm sure.

    I can, but we have no stars. It's not like his second out of a crop of big stars.

    That’s your choice to move the goalposts then. At present it’s fair to say he’s the second most popular boxer in the UK behind Joshua. Whatever metric you’re using for deciding who’s a star and who isn’t is neither here nor there.

    The lack of press is unsurprising.
    The fight sold out within minutes, neither AJ or Usyk would be ‘getting into it’ and flipping tables at press events and travel restrictions prevented Usyk from moving in and out of the Ukraine. I’m sure they’ll be enough talking points during fight week to wet the appetite. End of the day, the quality of the fight sold itself
