    At what point do we as fans stop blaming everyone but the actual fighters who clearly don't want to fight one another? I will not disagree that the system sucks and the promoters are vultures, but why is there always an out for a fighter to not take accountability when they clearly duck someone?

    It's apparently been "officially dead" like a half a dozen times in the last week. I'm not sure these two teams understand the meaning of the word "inconceivable".

    In a UFC-like structure, Tyson Fury wouldn't even be allowed to fight because he weighs too much.

    its clear that Fury really wanted to fight Usyk in Saudi.......my bet he is waiting until Summer to try again with Usyk but still disappointing

    Well thats tyson fury just flushed his legacy down the drain.

    Unbeaten champ, come back from where he did to dethrone wilder then just as he is about to put the cherry on his cake become undisputed and cement himself as an atg he ducks the best fighter in the division and proves himself to be the opposite of the fighting man he professes to be. Even worse than that he's also shown himself to be a greedy arrogant money obsessed ***** in the process. They don't make em like they used to eh.

    Fury is at fault if it doesn’t happen, although I think it will on the planned date in April. However, the demand from Usyk’s team for 70-30 in favour of Usyk if he wins the first fight is absurd. People need to stop ignoring that just because they like Usyk.

    Did he? Assuming it's off (and I still remain unconvicned), who walked away from the table? And for what official reason? Was it Fury? Or Usyk?

    Fury only asked for the same splits AJ got against Usyk 70-30 then 50-50 but usyk turned down 50-50 and wants 70% of rematch which is ridiculous

    this is from the guy that said ‘i will fight you for free ‘

    usky didnt want it

    What are you trying to get at here? Some people work for a living and don't focus 100% of their time on forums.

    The fight has been on, then off, then on, then off every 3 days for the past few weeks lol

    The fight will happen later this year in Saudi. They’re just waiting for the Saudis to pull their check book out. It realistically was never going to happen at Wembley, neither side would just leave tens of millions of dollars on the table like that.
