    My goodness the hate here is strong! Breathe and stop the seethe buddy.

    AJ's wages were paid by Saudi oil money. The PPV/DAZN subscription generated by AJ/Ruiz 2 looks to be significantly lower than the expected figures to come from America and UK combined PPV sales along with the record Vegas gate for a heavyweight fight.

    If you think Joshua earned £80 million for Ruiz JR 2 then you're an idiot.

    McGregor earned around £80 million for the Mayweather fight.

    I don't think Fury vs Joshua generates more revenue than Fury vs Wilder 2.

    People don't realise the commercial power that an American fighter brings to the table.

    No, I'm not sure where this is going at all.
    I think you're maybe having a bit of an "anti-Fury" melt down, to be honest.

    Fury would have been a successful heavyweight if he'd had fought in the 1980s, I think that's a reasonable statement. The likes of Mike Weaver, Trevor Berbick, Pinklon Thomas, Greg Page, Michael Spinks, Tony Tubbs, Tim Witherspoon ALL picked up world titles in the 1980s, I don't think they were all "awesome" at all.
    And Fury is better than Bruno was, by a fairly big margin.

    How is the Ring belt more of a joke than, say, the IBF, or the WBO ?
    I mean, look at the rankings.
    You'll never see the Ring magazine recognize a fight like Martin and Glazhkov for the vacant belt, would you ?
    Which title is more of a joke then really ?

    McGregor/Mayweather sold 4.3 million US PPV buys at $100 a pop - that's 430 million dollars. The gate was 55 million dollars. It was the second highest grossing fight of all time. I'm pretty sure McGregor, who is currently easily the biggest star in combate sports, got his fair shair of the pie. He said himself it was close to 100 million and the figures back that up.

    Exactly.

    But Brixton Bomber thinks AJ earned more for his fight vs Ruiz JR...

    AJ's fight didn't make a noise in America. It was on at 2PM in the afternoon.

    AJ may well have earned in that region but there's a big difference between Saudi oil money paying your wages and fans millions of fans forking out hundreds and thousands to see a fight. AJ/Ruiz 2 did fantastic in UK but the US PPV market and gate money is on a different stratosphere.

    Which is why I didn't get your earlier post about Fury bringing the US market? What evidence will we have from the PPV buys for Wilder Fury 2, that a similar or larger audience would tune in when there wasn't a hard punching, mouthy, unbeaten knock out merchant American on one side of the match-up?

    I hope that display does win him serious crossover support, but what evidence exists from the wilder, Schwartz and wallin fights that Fury is a us box office draw?

    An Irish Drugs Baron based in UAE is organising the fight behind the scenes.

    Nothing can prevent this fight happening now.

    I can see the massive issue being who is the a side
    Who walks first
    Whose name is first

    they have already agreed 50/50
