    very simple.

    If Tyson fury beat deontay flat out and there was no rematch clause what would Joshua do?

    Clear out the division
    Or
    Just face fury and hide behind the belts mandatories

    It would make a Wilder fight more likely in some ways. There would still be demand for it, certainly in the UK. And Wilder would no longer be able to demand 50 or close to it. A little over 25% would probably be enough to make it work.

    It's another reason the Fury fight always made sense. Between his two fury fights (if they happen) and an AJ fight at 25%, he'd make alot more money than just a single AJ fight at 35% as a beltholder. Even if you threw a middling title defense against Braezaele in with it.

    This one I've also asked myself.

    The perfect scenario now should be:

    Joshua-Wilder
    Fury: Training camp.
    Joshua-WIlder 2
    Fury Training camp.
    Joshua-Fury,

    Wilder is extremely beatable by Joshua.

    I think he'd face him so long as he was making a bundle of money.

    I mean, why would he avoid him? Povetkin, Parker and Wlad are all unarguably better than Windmillo and he fought them.
