    I said Povetkin and Parker have better resumes than Wilder not Rivas. Although Rivas is on par with Wilders best win in Ortiz.

    Conor wouldn't get the money here that he does in the states. The UFC owners who discovered Conor are some of the shrewdest men alive, think nobody thought of that?

    If America is where the stardom is, why hasn't Tyson cracked it? He's been out there nearly 10 years ffs!

    You said recently (and many other times) Fury hasn't had a win as good as any of Whyte's last 5 since Klitschko. So that means Rivas is better than Wilder.

    Also said 11 loss Chisora is better than Wilder.

    You will have seen me post before that I will recognise Tony Dosh PPV as the best in his generation when he defeats the best - Fury, Usyk and Wilder.

    Fury has dethroned two long reigning World Champions away from home in their prime - that is simply levels above any fight on the Joshua CV. Frankly nearly every Joshua fight has been a 80/20 fight in his favour, very little live threat and he somehow managed to get beat in one of them.

    As for Matchroom, I have stated consistently that I feel that current Sky Sports, BT Sports and any other channel should not be charging existing subscribers extra - no problem charging PPV for non subscribers. The same criticism is aimed at Frank on BT Sports.

    The gripe with Matchroom is the standard of fights on Sky since Eh Day got the solo deal, deteriorated to shocking levels where nearly all Heavyweight fights and any decent match up was stuck on Box Office. We used to get Moore v Macklin, Gomez v Arthur then in Eh Day's final days at Sky - subscribers get Terry Harper if they are lucky.

    As for Tyson Fury, I used to dislike him until the greatest comeback seen in modern boxing history, getting off the deck when iced by Wilder and having the balls to fight away from home in fights where he was a clear underdog.

    Give me one professional fight where Joshua was the underdog?

    The Wlad that AJ beat is a better Wlad than the one Tyson beat.

    Wlad didn't have martial problems going on with his wife, came in to win, actually let his hands fly and wanted a KO. And AJ knocked him out.

    Did Fury put on a masterclass? No. Fantastic win, but also a very negative win. NOBODY will re-watch that fight, ever.

    Is that a serious question?
    McGregor fights for the UFC who hold 90% of their events in America. He can’t just hold a fight in a stadium in Ireland without the UFC say so.
    Your average Mexican has about 5 pesos to his name, Canelo could sell out a stadium but comparatively it would be worthless that’s why he doesn’t fight in Mexico.

    Problems with his wife haha. Was she his sparring partner?

    'Came to win' was he trying to not win against Fury?

    McGregor has fought in Ireland for the UFC before. Then when he turned into a megastar he fought in America because that's where the $$$ is. If selling out stadiums in UK & Ireland was more lucrative then Dana White would do it. But it's not so he doesn't.

    Absolute nonsense - he was an old man who was 41 and inactive for 18 months.

    I do agree with the Dusseldorf Stinker - if I have problems sleeping then I think about that fight.

    Is it AJ's fault that these fights are 80/20? No. He's in a weird era. And who is he supposed to face? Fury doesn't want to know, neither did Wilder, so Usyk is left. And no doubt you will come out with some sly remark about Usyk struggling with Chisora, as you do.

    I agree that we shouldn't be paying to watch a niche sport, but if you managed a boxer who could fill out stadium I'm sure you'd also go against earning that money...

    I agree. But again, this is a business opportunity that he spotted. Pretty sure he's not struggling to sleep at night, and he knows the casual are huge in numbers and daft as heck.

    Joshua was an underdog against Tyson. And lol @ ghat being the greatest comeback in modern history. You must be new.

    He was going through a divorce.

    No, he wasn't. He let his hands go in the last round and had Fury in trouble, but that's it.

    Usyk was a great Cruiserweight Boxer but we don't know if he can cut it against the top Heavyweights yet.

    However, this will be Joshua's 2nd fight with a live threat and he will get the credit he deserves should he win.

    Give me an example of someone in a worse position than Fury (Mentally and Physically) who fought in a World Title fight, away from home, in his 3rd fight, against a man icing all opponents after an absence of 32 months.

    The legend of The Gypsy King will be talked about 100 years from now and Joshua could remain the man everybody laughs at on youtube being battered by a little fatty with huge manboobs.

    A quick Google search tells me he was with Hayden Panettiere between 2009 and 2018.

    She was ringside for the Fury fight (2015) as per this article.

    She was also on the big screen at Wembley against AJ (2017) so he certainly wasn't divorcing her in 2015.

    Did not realise he had split up with her - has he moved in with Joshua?

    The hypocrisy of your post following what you have said about other posters is hilarious.
