    I highly doubt it… Fury wants AJ level money for his fights now and the only fights that would generate that kind of money are Usyk, AJ and Wilder everything. He’s just posturing and playing up for the Aussies…

    No hating about it. Take the blinkers off.

    It's definitely hating. You wouldn't give him any credit even if it was due.

    No that’s not true. He is happy taking £5-10m a pop in 100% winnable conning the public fights.

    If he fights one of those 3 he wants stupid money well north of £100m if in Saudi.

    He’s not silly picking up great money in meaningless tickovers is all he is after

    Zero chance of Fury fighting McKeen, unless of course then Aussies want to pay him £20m + which is obviously not happening.

    I wish Fury would just fcuking disappear and wait for this Middle Eastern payout

    I think he completely misjudged the reaction to the Usyk debacle. So many people in his circle of hangers on have been blowing smoke up his backside that he believed his own hype.

    The UK public like and respect Usyk far more than anticipated - I also wonder whether Arum and Warren have also lost patience. He’s done this before, he’ll go where he feels he’s liked - at the moment (for some reason) that’s Australia. I remember him claiming Ireland when he felt he wasn’t loved in the UK.

    The British public don’t warm to excessive greed. The flash greedy types are not how Brits are. Fury endeared himself to the public by being a man of the people. Demanding 70/30 or you can fight someone else and all that talk has not helped him.

    My prediction is some fake beef with Joseph Parker and then two fighting this summer

    No I think Fury is a man child who actually combines a huge ego with low self esteem and a need to be loved. He won't fight anyone with a pulse these days for all the money in Dubai but he's all over a handpicked cheeky £8-10m here or there.

    I don't think this is serious guys. It's just fake hype as he's currently in Australia.

    And no, I can't stand Tyson Fury these days either.

    Seems that Arum isn't bothered about Fury fighting in America anymore. He's happy for him to fight in the UK these days and Frank to deal with all the crap. Will still pick up a cut at the end of the day.
