    Wonder what’ll happen when MBS has enough of Turki and takes his head off.

    Wonder what’ll happen to boxing then.

    Boxing is run by gangsters, it’s a disgrace.

    It is sad that we have ended up here.

    60 - 70 years ago, The American boxing scene was completely controlled by the mafia. They also decided which boxers would win the fights and fortunately we do not have that situation today.

    We still do as most of the fights that make TV these days are complete mismatches.

    Look at this absolutely ridiculous belt on offer for the winner. I'm struggling to believe this is real - even WWE's belts aren't this tacky.

    Match-fixed boxing fights still take place today where the opponent is bought with a golden envelope, but luckily it's not that often. In the past, all the big fights were fixed.

    It is true that there are many unimportant fights going on, but that´s the way to build a new boxer's career.

    I get sick in the head when I think about the Saudi boxing situation.

    Now they are launching their own belt and title. What will be next ?

    What impact does this have on the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO organizations ?

    Looks like something Rocky Balboa and Thunderlips should’ve fought for…

    this blood money saying everyone throws about for saudi annoys me. Their money is oil money selling a commodity on the global markets to supply the world’s needs. They made their money on oil not their ways, culture, humans rights stuff and the war in Yemen… but forget we supplied their arms and we are now bombing the same rebels in Yemen as Saudi, does that mean all U.K. money is blood money if we go off this sensationalist description. To be fair does any big organisation or industry not have some sort of blood on their hands what even is clean money these days.

    The world has a need for oil they supply it until we no longer have a demand simple, let them spend some money on some sports to enjoy it

    Is there anything in the horizon to delay the fight again or has fury ran out of excuses?

    he knew about usyks last madatory requirements as the madatory was also warrens fighter Dubois so they delayed and delayed the fight until time ran out… he had his ngannou cash grab to delay it and it went wrong, dodgy planned cut after being shamed into the fight online etc. what’s the rumours on the may 18th event? Wonder if the WBC might enforce a real mandatory for once to protect fury as he’s going to need to be at gun point to step in ring with usyk until tries to age him out some more. Maybe he will retire/vacate and mate a comeback if usyk loses or retires
