    Fury is the heavyweight king " Donkey Wilder couldn't beat a firing on only three cylinder version of Tyson Fury " Francis ,
    Joshua was just a Hearn manufactured robotic goose that laid him a golden egg every 9 months or so , if i was Andy Ruiz I would absolutely **** Eddie's pocket and then batter Joshua again in the rematch then cash out v Wilder or young Tyson . It must be God awful to go from throwing chicken feed at fighters to fight your robot then having to shell a fortune to stay relevant...... LMFAO @ Smarmy Eddie .

    Yeah he did well against a massive size disadvantage. I hope he also wins the rematch.

    I agree Josey, Fury is the king of the division when he is focused and in fighting condition. He clearly beat Wilder in their fight and boxed him up. Wilder has just got a huge punch which can take you far.

    I wish fighters and their management wouldn't stuff around so much and make the fights that need to be made rather then waiting around for years and years in the hope of a bigger pay day because inevitably one of them will lose in the meantime.

    What gets me is Hearn saying it 's nailed on that Joshua will get an immediate Re-match with Ruiz ( in London) , that ain't right , Joshua should be made to jump through a few of the hoops he and Hearn make other fighters jump through before that happens , both Wilder and Ruiz are promoted by Al Heymon and I would like to see a huge " in house " unification bout take place first between the pair for all the marbles , obviously Josh is still big business in the division but getting an immediate undeserved Re-match shouldn't really be on offer . I'd love to see Wilders next three fights in this order .
    Ruiz
    Fury
    Joshua .
    Like you say Francis , Big fights need to get made .

    I'd imagine that the contract Ruiz signed stipulated that given he was a voluntary but it makes all these other chickens lokk even more silly as it could have been them getting great coin and taken the belts..

    My mate has been telling me Joshua is chinny as **** and just a body builder who wouldn't be able to cope when faced with speed later on in a fight for yonks and boy he was literally on the phone at 5am Sunday morning telling me lmfao
    , but you're correct I bet Wladamir is gutted he never fought him again when offered as well because his kid would have sat him down and told him how to beat Joshua in a re - match .

    * Big test for for Liam The Prodigy Paro WBO no 3 Gold Coast Sat as his fights unbeaten
    Turkish Olympian Fatik Keles WBO no 12 in which is virtually a world title eliminator for
    to face American WBO Champ Maurice Hooker. Keles is 29 and has vast exp and former
    European Am Champ and fought in London Olympic's. He arrived in Brisbane with his
    coach German based Bulent Baser ( who runs famous ECB Gym ) who in the past trained former world champs Herbie Hide, Cuban Juan Carlos Gomez and Gold medalist Odlanier Solis. Baser says he has closely studied slick southpaw Paro and is confident Keles has the exp to outbox him.
    " Fatik started boxing when he was 12 and had 415 Am fights. We have watched You Tube of Paro , he is a good boxer but Fatik has the technqiue. He is very aggressive fighter and throws fast straight punches . Nothing wild. Just good boxing. "
    * Tim Tszyu will be sparring Pacquiao for 10 days . Tim Tzyu is weighing around 165 - 168 lbs. And already made any impression. Pacquiao acknowledging that it was money well spent importing Tszyu from Aust.

    *Tim is getting rave reviews for his sparring with Pacquiao for impersonating Thurman with his slickness. Like Daniel Lewis sparring with Danny Jacobs this will do wonders for his exposure and development as a fighter.
    * Tszyu has now moved up a to WBA no 14 and Bilal Akkawy dropped to WBA no 12.
    * Another Shark player has put up his hand to fight Justin Hodges. This time former State of Origin and Aust rep player and now Tongan Int Andrew Fifita. Fifita would be trained by Aus UFC fighter Pedro Jackson.
    * Tai Tuivasa returns this Sun UFC 238 Chicago.

    I've heard a few different things about Tszyu's opposition for the rest of the year.

    Presumably he will fight twice - in August & maybe once more in Nov or Dec. That would complete a big year for him.

    In terms of who is up next, Dwight Ritchie was the early favourite & hopefully is still in the frame. He's the IBF regional champ & is a good fighter who Tszyu appears ready for.

    News Ltd are also reporting today that promoters are trying to get Shane Mosley Jr for him. Mosley Jr has been out here before to fight Dave Toussaint & is a 6'1 middleweight. The other name I've heard mentioned is Rocky Jerkic. All would be decent opponents next up.

    It would be interesting to know how the PPV numbers turned out for Tszyu v Camilleri. Foxtel are going to want a return on their investment so if the numbers weren't good they will presumably be pushing for more "name" opponents - like Mosley Jr, Mundine & even Zab.

    Hopefully the PPV numbers were okay. I'd prefer to see local guys like Dwight Ritchie & Rocky Jerkic get the PPV money.

    Don't think Tim Tszyu will fight Rocky Jerkic , they have spared each other a few times so Tim knows Rocky's good . Bad call if Tim gets to fight Mundine ?.
