    Yet Warren had the audacity to tell is that Hill and Furys sparring partners were all traveling to the UK for camp.

    Usyk DID NOT WANT THIS @ 70% TO 30% & I don't blame him.
    60% 40% for Fury would have been about right.
    Btw I did not think this fight would happen.

    Sorry bro, but you can literally get beaten or knifed to death for wearing the wrong jersey in SF or LA.
    Don't take my word for it, Google it

    So there are actual Baseball hooligans?

    That's kinda weird. I'm not from the USA but sports over there don't seem to have the intense rivalries you see in Football/Soccer in Europe or South American for example. They seem more family friendly occasions.

    In California they do, can't speak for any other states. I've heard about the fan violence in UK and Mexico over soccer, sounds like more of a mob violence situation when I hear about it.

    In Cali it's usually one person getting beaten or murdered by a group of people, and the LA vs SF rivalry has been a popular culprit.

    Also, the street gangs in Cali historically identify themselves with sports jerseys.....for example, LA gangbangers often wear Raiders or Lakers gear, whereas up north red 9ers jerseys are more In style....but Raiders too

    We used to have Battle of the Bay, every NFL preseason, it was tradition, 9ers vs Raiders....but it got cancelled about 10 years ago due to fan on fan violence (I believe another shooting)..

    I've heard about those crazy MFers in UK getting down at the soccer games, but to be honest, I heard those fools in Mexico and south America are way more ruthless

    I wonder if Usyk's aware that Wilder's open for a fight.

    Why??? Usyk holds 3 titles Fury 1 Yet Fury demanded a 70/30 split.. OK Fury beat Wilder after drawing with him to win his one title. Who else has he beaten since an aged Klitschko?? Usyk has beaten
    AJ twice to get his 3 titles after holding the undisputed lt heavy title A 50/50 split would have been fair in this fight I agree but Greedy Belly demands 70/30 in his favor. Usyk agreed surprisingly Not satisfied GB demands 50/50 for the rematch should he lose He wants everything If Usyk beats Fury he should be rewarded with 70/30 in the rematch because he is now the undisputed Champion

    Huh, interesting to know, every days a school day. I can talk on the UK as I was born there, no longer live there mind, but yeah there is kinda a mob element to it with the football hooligan violence, but it's not uncommon to for somebody to be attacked when running in to a group of rival fans for wearing a rival teams jersey. There's been tones of incidents, though was much more common 30 odd years ago. There's a massive police presence on match days now and away fans generally aren't allowed in pubs or bars near the ground.

    Yeah you are right though South and Central America probably have way more extreme cases. But damn, American sports events seem so wholesome when I have watched them on TV, I never knew there was such animosity between rival fans.

    Usyk is not innocent in this fiasco. He asked for 70-30 in his favor for the rematch.
    Pretty bold for a boy with no following outside of Ukraine.

    I've talked about why the rematch clause favours Usyk in other posts. But Krassyuk said they will only do 50-50 without a rematch clause, not 70-30. And even them accepting 70-30 for fight 1 is contingent on them getting 70-30 if Usyk beats Fury (and the rematch would be far more lucrative in that event). This is all public knowledge now, from the horse's mouth.

    There are no angels and devils, it's cynical on both sides. If team Usyk was so desperate to fight they'd scrap the rematch and accept 70-30, or at least budge on 50-50. Fury's the one taking the vast majority of the risk for less reward. Hopefully the fight happens sooner rather than later.

    Almost 95 % of the forum have voted Fury is to blame if the fight is cancelled Kinda shoots down Fury's I'm the King doesn't it
