    Get ready for Pulev vs Fury

    Wilder vs TBA

    Thanks Bob

    This fight needs no marinating

    Cmon Bob

    Now

    Fury = ESPN
    Wilder = SHOWTIME
    AJ = DAzn

    Now the fights way harder to make

    WoW

    He's obviously had a good chat with Barry "The Marinator" Hearn.

    Pulev v Fury is a good fight, which means it won't happen.

    I don't blame Fury for an easier bout, he was dropped twice and almost ktfo'd in his last bout (despite clearly winning).

    Arum is a c-bomb though.

    Just listened to Mike Costello's interview with Fury and Warren. They did some major back pedaling. When asked about Wilder v Fury rematch, Fury said he's already beaten him once and if it happens it happens. He just kept talking about the next 30 months and he's not bothered what opponents he faces.

    Can't see Pulev in with Fury next. He's already a mandatory for Joshua but is high risk low reward for Fury (& Top Rank & ESPN).

    Bryant Jennings is more like it followed by Wilder in the second half of the year with a rematch clause in Fury's favour (it need not be an immediate rematch) which would basically cover off 4 of the 5 fight deal).

    If Fury were to lose to Wilder in his second fight he could still have him locked in for a rubber match in his fourth.

    Fury has signed with Top Rank / ESPN so he's not dictated to. As Lineal Champion, nor should he be.

    Smart move by Tyson. Should've come to America earlier

    How much did the 1st one sell ? 300k - 400k ? They can surely improve on that with ESPN now backing Fury

    Lets give Bob a chance. He may be able to promote it better. Possibly his last hurrah!

    Such crap.

    The fight needs no marination.

    If I didnt like both fighters and want to see this, Id hope the plan backfires ala what he did to the lopez vs gamboa matchup years ago.

    But hopefully they get these waste of time fights out the way and we can get a good rematch.

    So annoying and not the least bit needed. Another fight each isn't going to make this any bigger, especially given the likelihood that Fury is in a stink fest
