    You are not wrong. Hypocrisy flying around everywhere, especially from the UK and USA regarding the war in Ukraine and also regarding anything Saudi related. Also, I have seen many boxing fans on the internet moan about Saudi as a venue for boxing, but will happily watch Formula 1 there etc.

    Yes, literally just what I put in the other thread. It's definitely an elephant in the room.

    Fury know's which way his bread is buttered. I do not blame them either, Kinahan is obviously not a man to be crossed and these guys just do the punching, very little impact into the business side of things. The way uncle Bob dropped him like a stone as soon as the US sanctions came in speaks volumes, he was obviously just being tolerated and not embraced. I seem to remember Bob being quoted as saying 'Daniel is someone we love and respect' at one point. He obviously put the creepers up them all.

    I actually think and have for a while that Fury will fight, for least a good section of the fight as a southpaw. It will extend the space between him and Whyte and will make it harder for Whyte to land the left hook and overhand right. It will also enable Fury to hurt him more with the jab.

    This Kinehan Saga has dropped at the wrong time. On Wednesdays press conference the questions are going to come again and Fury by the end of it will be sick to the teeth of the media.

    That Sky interview is the difference between an outlet that will lose no sleep over asking the questions that need asking compared to the YouTube channels who are frightened about losing the access.

    As has been pointed out though, sky themselves need to answer a few regarding Macklin.

    YouTuber dweebs are much easier to control than multinational news corps.

    Hopefully Whyte brings Kinahan up on the press event, as it seems to rattle Fury.

    It is funny watching people get pressed though. Then at the end saying he won't do an interview with Sky again! haha People in boxing can be so thin skinned it's laughable.

    You're reaching. I know you love your Matchroom but Whyte ain't getting anywhere near Fury no matter what antics are happening out of the ring.

    We seem to be entering the time of DISCLOSURE, all over the world. I believe no man can judge, but the BIG MAN.

    Full disclosure then, I got Fury KO rds7-9 at 9/2. Whyteleafe has HEART and will go out on his shield.

    I don't see a rank average plodder like Whyteleafe having anything in the toolkit to trouble Fury, the only question for me is how much of a beating he can take before he goes night night. Fury not a concussive clean one punch KO artist so I reckon this is a GRUELLING beat down via gulf in class. 7-9 feels about right.

    This interview with Sky, where Fury is getting quite assy about Daniel Kinehan. Can see him being quite wrattled on Saturday night.

    Spot on. Sky actually having a presence there is good for the sport of boxing and will push the fight, but they’re not bothered about asking difficult questions. When you have a news outlet that can’t be cancelled and pushed out, they will ask the questions that their readers ‘ viewers want to hear.

    Sky do seem to have a short memory though, Macklin’s controversy being one but as well as this they ran the MTK Golden Contract - but of course Dan the man didn’t have anything to do with it...

    Fury on points. I think he will be far more cautious this time and end up getting into trouble early on before pulling away for a 117-111/ 116-112
