    Anyone actually going to the fight? I am. Can't wait. It's my first time actually going to a boxing fight.

    Ringside seats? If not then I hope you like the "atmosphere".

    Watching the match on the big screen in a stadium doesn't seem worth the hassle to me.

    This is exactly why I don't tend to go to them, the view on your screen is better, but someone is offering me a ticket and I didn't want to say no.

    How much credit would you give AJ for beating Usyk? Would you give him respect and treat is as a great victory? Or just say "meh, blown up cruiserweight out of his prime", "aj only fights old men etc".??

    He is younger, larger, does have proper passport and promoters. :D:D:D
    He just simply should beat Usyk if he isn't damn overrated bum.

    Will I value Usyk like casual boxing fans as failed or bummy if AJ will KO him?
    Never.
    A always will value Usyk higher even if A.J will KO him in 1 st round.
    A.J never will get from me any credit even if he will KO Wilder and Fury. It never will happen. Like a lot of ppl here are doing with Klits while their idols had beat Klits era boxers and crying how Lewis is cool cherry picker.
    DUCK quack, quack, 38 y.o Lewis DUCK had ducked with retirement.
    While A.J fans are assuming that A.J is good cos he fought vs 39 y.o Povetkin and 41 y.o Wlad.
    Quack Quack Quack.

    Less than 2 weeks away from a little Ukrainian potentially ruining a $250,000,000+ fight.

    Eddie bricking himself.

    TBH Surrix comes across as having a massive mispronounced chip on his shoulder

    Really looking forward to this fight - enjoy the atmosphere Vegan! Should be great
    I am in Scotland on a motorbike trip so will be watching with beers (and whisky) in hand
    I think AJ will win but could go either way and will give the winner credit whoever it is
    At least they agreed to fight each other !

    More like Usyk is the WBO's mandatory who after a long time has finally got his shot.

    Dropping the belt would taint him permanently, see Bowe, Canelo.

    Yeah. They had installed Usyk as WBO mando for AJ long ago.

    Then later they had supposed unification fight vs Fury ( WBC champ ) and Usyk looks that pulled back his demands.

    After this IBF mando for A.J appeared this 39 y.o Pulev.
    A.J did fight vs Pulev.

    Then stuff Fury vs A.J had failed cos Fury looks that wish to have Wilder III fight for WBC title.

    After this had been clear, A.J had negotiated with Usyk to do fight.
    Fury is busy with Wilder, Pulev had been beaten ( during time when Usyk already had been A.J mando long ago ).
