    All of the promotions have been gash.

    Covid is wreaking chaos on promotions. These are not normal times.

    Let’s just hope they get it over with this time. No more delays.

    There was never public appetite for this match, the first two fights were conclusive enough.

    They have simply stopped beating a dead horse. I told you all last year that this thing was not going to sell. There is no money in this non-rivalry as 85% to 95% of the boxing community thinks Fury won handily twice.

    There have been ads on in the sports channels here...meanwhile I've seen NOTHING about Usyk-Joshua.

    70,000 in the Tottenham Stadium...beats the 80,000 at Wembley mark.

    I actually thought it was this Saturday...told me mailman to watch it then had to catch him yesterday and tell him it's next week.

    Absolutely no adverts here for this fight...and it's a damn good card. I imagine maybe there is some noise in NYC about it since Kownacki is a Brooklyn boy.

    Right. That fight is in six days. Nothing. No commercials. Nothing. You'd think DAZN would use this to try to get new subscribers in the US.

    No TV ads. No sports channel coverage. Nothing.

    The DAZN app has some promos you can click on. You'd think they'd at least be showing Joshua and Usyk fights round the clock. Or offer a free preview weekend. Something. But that app is dead air in the US for most of the week.

    Joshua got more covereage in the US when he used to fight on Showtime.

    You mean like you told us Fury was going to fight Agit Kabayel next? Or Fury was going to fight Anthony Joshua next? Or Fury was going to fight David Haye next?

    Let us know when you get one right.

    95 percent of the boxing community in your mind is actually just you.

    Fury landed in the U.S. today to fight ... drum roll ... DEONTAY WILDER!!!!

    Actually, I said he was going to fight Kabayel next, and it almost happened.

    He will fight Haye. Mark it.

    It might reflect the fact that no one is really all that excited for the fight.
