    Do 50% the posters and adverts as Fury V Joshua and vice verse. Personally think AJ should walk second as the majority belt holder but have a feeling he’ll walk first. He said he enjoyed the experience vs Ruiz 2

    Don’t think there’ll be any issues apart from control freak Hearn wanting his name plastered everywhere.

    The ring belt is the one belt that actually matters.

    Fury has to Walk second he is the pretty much universally accepted as the No1 at the moment he is also Lineal and has the Ring belt.
    The WBO should be dropped and i think it will be as Usyk is wanting mega money to step aside and i know Fury wont pay it, Fury also dosn't care about the WBO belt he already has it anyway the Belt is not important to Fury.
    AJ knows he has to vacate as Usyk is a really big risk fight for alot less money and could very much beats him (genuine 50-50 for me).
    But who cares about who walks first, who has the biggest dressing room or who has the red corner WE JUST WANT THE FIGHT TO HAPPEN.

    Dont you see AJ vs Usyk as a 50-50?
    My reasoning is since the Ruiz loss AJ seems to not have that fire of just pressuring and walking guys down.
    For me he is now trying to be a boxer mover and you dont learn that in 2-3 fights where as Usyk is a pure boxer mover and a very good one at that. I just think he picks AJ apart but AJ is also alot bigger man who can punch and in the HW division it only takes 1 shot so i can see it going either way. If i had to bet i would put my money on Usyk i just think he has the skill to beat any HW including Fury on his night.
    If you look at the depth of the AJ resume its not that deep the only Legit world class win for me is Parker and that is only because he had a belt (that win is not aging well with time). AJ is not the destroyer the casuals believe he is, any Hardcore knows AJ vs Usyk is a 50-50 and Fury vs AJ is probably a 90-10 (only giving AJ a punchers chance).

    Fury is walking second, he said it in one of his interviews somewhere.

    Agree with you on AJ v Usyk.

    Joshua seems stuck between 2 styles since the Klitschko fight and especially since the first Ruiz fight. He’s trying to be more of a ‘boxer’ but Usyk is by far the superior boxer of the 2. AJ would come in light to try and match Usyk’s speed/footwork/stamina, as he did in the second Ruiz fight, but in doing so loses the punch power that was his only real advantage over Usyk.

    They should just flip a coin, put the nonsense aside and get on with it.

    Wilders not out the picture yet despite what people are being told. He may require a substantial fee that won’t be cheap.

    Might just be easier to fight him....

    I for one would be more than happy with a Joshua vs Usyk fight next IF Fury does have to fight Wilder again.

    Although I do wonder if all those people saying that AJ should bin the WBO belt to fight Fury will be telling Tyson to dump his WBC strap to fight Joshua.

    They absolutely should, but they won't. Instead they'll milk every last second of the negotiation process to garner more headlines and social media clicks.

    Prepare for the dressing room saga, the ringwalk order yarn and the First name on the poster 'controversy'...

    The concluding part of this tweet from Lewis made me chuckle.

    Zing! That's the way to chide someone. Low key, but decisive...
