    I think AJ fighting away from home might do him some good this time... Yes I know the American experiment in Ruiz 1 didn't pan out too well for him, but there's going to be A LOT of hype and attention around for this rematch, maybe fighting in another fighter's backyard would help.

    Plus, who knows maybe Usyk fighting on home turf for once might be a banana skin for him?

    Interesting thought. You might be right. He's used to being away from the pressure of home support, maybe the home support would be unusual pressure.

    Saudi Arabia was not exactly home soil for him so my view wherever bring it on.

    Makes sense.
    Losing in front of 90,000 Brits would be worse for him and his reputation.
    Winning in Ukraine would be better for his reputation than winning at home again.

    More to gain, less to lose.

    Hearn wouldn’t like it - Joshua has been the home fighter in every single bout. Yes even in MSG and Saudi it was basically a home fight for him.

    They always stack the deck where possible. It would be good to see him fight as a true away fighter for once.

    Not enough money in it. Won't happen in Ukraine. Or Russia for that matter.

    I think in that part of the world there are a fair few incredibly wealthy people who might be able to make things happen, especially Russia.

    Logistically it would be a challenge or course but wouldn’t say it’s impossible.

    We don't want to see rematches anymore. We want to see the undisputed heavyweight championship match: Fury vs Usyk, clash of 2 unbeaten champions.

    I don't think it really matters to AJ where the fight is. Usyk might even be under more pressure to perform at home. This could backfire.

    I think Usyk can beat him anywhere but i respect AJ both for his resume (best by far in the division) and this. He took his losses with humility and respect unlike Wilder. Though i respect Wilder for the heart he showed in the ring too. Heavyweight division just got better for me because how these guys acted in the last one month.

    Yup, that's exactly how I see it.

    The where and when is not the elephant in the room in this instance. Far from it.

    IMO, AJ gets Bashed in Britain, Raped in Russia, Starched in Saudi or 'Uthanized in the UKraine.

    It's all the same to Usyk.
