    Fury and wilder aren't a pull in states either unless tied to the champ.

    You're right that something has felt a bit off about the Fury - Wilder rubber match for a while now and that feeling only increased for me the closer we got to fight night. Only a month or 3 weeks away and there was still no real hype or buzz, neither fighter was giving interviews or making public appearances, all seemed a bit strange.

    Were they not selling enough tickets or PPV's ?? Hmmmmmm

    Love the fact Whyte is now demanding the WBC promote him to world champion. Didn’t want to face AJ at Wembley for 3 of the belts but happy to be gifted the WBC one. Absolute clown.

    Wilder would knock Dillian Shyte into next week.

    Fury has defended the lineal belt 6 times.

    Paper title defences mean diddly squat, look at Wilder, Joshua and Wlad's paper title defences.

    Wilder has 10 defences to femi’s 7. Wilder clearly has a better resume according to this logic

    Big wins trump boring mismatch title defences in my opinion

    Interesting that other covid victims from the Fury camp include Andy Lee and Joseph Parker, the same Parker who was ringside at the McGregor fight on Saturday night mixing with fans and far from self isolating. Situation stinks..

    I like how you attribute Joshua and Wilders defences as paper defences and at the same time can gloat about Fury “defending the lineal belt 6 times” against the likes of Seferi, Pianeta and Schwartz.

    Situation does stink. I also read that Finkel stated in an interview that the rematch clause runs out middle of September and Fury's camp would have to 'agree' to an extension for the fight to take place.

    Lol gotta appreciate the dedication to defending Fury.

    Just remind us of where those challengers for the lineal title were ranked?

    He has very little self awareness

    Rumour is Fury is pulling out because he has been knocked out by Jared Anderson in sparring.

    I’m guessing sparring partners have to sign forms beforehand in case they knock someone out. Could easily see Anderson dropping fury.

    There must be videos out there of famous fighters getting knocked out in sparring that we will never ever see. Shame really as I’d pay to watch those clips
