    Agreed sadly. He is losing lots of the goodwill he built up with the Wilder performance. This ESPN deal has been dreadful for fans.

    Deontay speaking sense here. He’s totally right.

    Can’t disagree with Wilder at all.

    Interesting quote from Arum (
    This content is protected
    )

    "The deal is done," Arum said. "But like everything else in boxing it could be an undone deal."

    "Each of these guys are having an interim fight for whatever reason I can't fathom," Arum told told BBC Sport Northern Ireland. "Wilder is fighting Ortiz who had him in trouble the last time they fought and Fury is fighting this big Swedish kid in September.


    The "can't fathom" comment caught my eye. I thought this was largely Arum's doing, where's the push to have these easy fights coming from then? I really hope it's not from Fury's camp, don't see why it would be. ESPN surely realise that this won't sell well.. it's all very strange.

    Yeah that threw me, too. I thought it was Arum who was the puppet master here. If Fury is picking these opponents then at the moment, Arum must be feeling like those lads in Snatch when they bought a caravan from the travellers and the wheels fell off as soon as they moved it.

    I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed being spoken to like that!!! I've never been ringside so my opinions don't matter, absolute gold.

    Spot on! He is developing Amir Khan level's of delusion.

    Lost a lot of respect for Wilder this week, I thought it was distasteful him throwing around Dadashev's name in the aftermath of the Dillian Whyte saga with his comment about "wanting a body on my record". Utterly classless.

    Yeah wilder isn’t really the best fighter to call out Fury for his terrible opposition is he? Joshua has a better case to shame Fury in this case.

    I would have lost respect for Windmill if i had any. He's always been a classless idiot.
