    The Euro Footie Semi's and Final are at Wembley this Summer so Spurs or Cardiff would seem more realistic.

    Will an American audience pay to watch 2 British Heavyweights ?

    I would guess that the phone lines are already red hot.

    More belts my hoop. Tyson might not have a physical belt for it but he is without doubt the Lineal champ, and with the WBC and Ring magazine belts, I make that 3 titles a piece...

    Old Trafford would be better for all UK fans with the size of venue and central location.

    It appears that Fury has now achieved the goal of being a major appeal over there.

    Maybe but the Americans felt a bit duped by the AJ hype train when he got beat up by Ruiz. Joshua needs a solid win in a big state side fight imo.

    Exactly and Fury seems to be the new Golden boy with American sports fans. He will bring in huge money in American ppv for fight. Teddy Atlas and Max Melerman reckon he is the face of world boxing now. Seen Trump has invited him to the White House and the Pope wants to meet him. In this country he will be lucky to get a civic reception of his local council.

    Joshua just earned £80 mill odd.

    How much did Tyson get again?

    Steve Cunningham dropped Tyson.

    Mcdermott had him in huge trouble.

    See where this is going?

    The fact that Joshua has the audacity to claim he has earned 3 titles given they were taken from Fury is the real joke. And the fact one was gifted from the WBA.

    Tyson was stripped. That’s not AJ’s fault.

    Of course he earned them. It's not his fault Fury got stripped. It's not like he hasn't defended them, lost them and won them back.

    Using that logic Charlo was never WBC Jnr MW champion as Floyd retired.

    Danny Garcia was never WBC WW champion as Floyd retired.

    Canelo couldn't call himself WBA light middleweight champion as Floyd retired.

    Titles get vacated all the time. More important is how a new champion defends those titles.

    It's not like AJ was a paper champ who got the titles and then fought nobodies.

    It's not like Cleverly for instant who got a title defended vs nobodies and then the first major defence he had Vs Kovalev he lost.

    Tyson Fury has cracked the USA and now Donald Trump wants to meet him.

    Tyson Fury is even bigger than Tony Troll's dossier on Tyson Fury
