    As far as I’m aware that’s just what’s been reported - he’s said nothing

    Such an odd one but i guess it includes 2020? Even still it's a massive reach.

    Fury, who has a big mouth and talks about everything...except Nandrolone, fake depression and mental illness, the charity that he supposedly donated his entire purse to and now...fake Covid. Remember that next time this con man rants and raves about being the best heavyweight out there. Also remember that the entire point of boxing, is to actually fight someone. And he hasn't defended a belt nor has he fought in almost 2 years.

    Don't know when they take the dates from m8 could be like July to July or such.but even then fury fought in Feb 2020 so it's beyond belief.surprised he had the brass neck to accept the award tbh.

    Whole situation stinks my only hope is Fury prancing around to show up the promoters who pulled the plug?

    The man has never made a defence of a world title, he's a complete waste of time these days.

    Lineal Championship has been defended 6 times.

    No corrupt sanctioning bodies were involved.

    Opponents matter and the lineal title is normally fought along side world championship belts

    I love watching Fury fight and I really like his story (up to a point) but I'm getting really fed up with the way he treats boxing fans. So much of his career wasted already and now even more delays on a fight that there's no big clamour for.

    I would never bet against him but I feel that at some point perhaps soon that he's going to get proper chinned. The way he's neglected his body through drink, drugs and excessive weight gain he's effectively accelerated the natural physical deterioration we all go through in our 30s. He's already changed his style to accommodate the slower footwork.

    The list of lineal heavyweight champions is significantly stronger than the list of WBC, WBA, IBF or WBO champions.

    You can't manufacture a path to the lineal title. You have to beat the best.

    You can manufacture a path to a world title, e.g. Joshua beating Martin and Wilder vs Stiverne. Neither Charles Martin or Bernard Stiverne were World Champions, they were paper champions.
