    At this point there seems to be no 100% official information that the fight is really off. The whole story surrounding furies Covid infection seems very weird it could be that they’re basically gambling because of the low ticket sales but then again this could backfire at them since it could be that by October no people will be allowed in stadiums anymore when a new virus variance might come around.

    If the fight was on you would have heard by now. Because nobody is buying ****ing tickets right now. If there was even a chance it was going on, surely they would say it was? Then re-cancel. Because right now nobody is paying or planning to pay for that fight.

    Well that’s the thing I’m trying to say a lot of people here suspect that this is a move to postpone the flight so you can have more people in the stadium. I don’t know if you heard it but infection rates are going up in the Netherlands and Spain and other parts of Western Europe it could be that we are on in the beginning of a new corona wave and if that happens it’s very likely that by October even less people will be able to attend the fight I find it very weird that they need so long to figure out the whole situation out. The pove and Lopez fight was directly canceled after they knew they were positive

    Bob is trying to convince the venue execs to delay, lots of legal bs

    thry could continue but there are actually more benefits to delay

    venueS are desperate right now

    Fury sells this more than Wilder, losing out on thousands of easy ticket sales by going earlier

    Furry fan cohort will be able to fly out in oct assuming c19 bs is over

    I am almost sure they will regret this decision in October the Covid situation will be quite different I guess

    They need to make the fight as soon as possible as no one can predict if another lockdown is coming with covid cases on the rise in some areas.

    It's been marketed so poorly they're probably going to be running at a loss once they pay the fighters.

    Another 3 month window is perfect to re-market this to the casuals.

    If this is a delay to hopefully sell more tickets then its a foolish one. We will likely see more restrictions and lockdowns in the fall...because this is really about bringing in the new world order....its a scamdemic/plandemic. The world economic forum are predicting something else worse than convid is coming...

    They should fight as per scheduled and rely more on the ppv sales which surely will make the fight viable....there's plenty interested in this fight and even the tickets for the venue will sell better as we get closer to the date.

    On its original date?

    Incredibly unlikely.

    It will happen though

    I half wonder if it isn't Fury messing with Wilder's head.
