    Everyone gets it wrong, but for some of the same smug members to then revert to "Joshua lost to a special and once in a generation fighter" etc. is laughable. According to them, he got schooled by a bloke who struggled with Tony Bellew (Matchroom FC crowd)

    I don't think that you've read much, frankly.

    Think Fury has had the whole divisions pants down here. Insinuating he’d fight Usyk, get Whyte and AJ twerking for that step aside money, then say nah at the last minute. Exposing lot of them wanting £££, and its all mind games.

    Meantime it pisses Usyk off. I think genius

    Yeah me too, after seeing Usyk at heavy i thought he was very much on the slide and he always takes a good amount of punches. I thought Joshuas size and power would be far too much.

    1st and only one i have ever got wrong ;)

    You are giving Fury far too much credit, he isnt that smart.

    What i get from this is that AJ does not fancy it at all. I don't think you could have got him to step aside for all the tea in China after Ruiz loss but he was basically whoring himself out here. Hope the mentality change quickly or Usyk will absolutely humiliate him

    I don't know if it was his plan but it should bring some satisfaction to any decent boxing fan to know Dillian Whyte won't be making millions of pounds for doing nothing, and to know that Anthony Joshua won't be paid an obscene amount to sit out a rematch that he perhaps shouldn't really have signed up for to begin with.

    Tyson Fury is as greedy and as money grubbing as the rest, most likely. But it's been a revelation these last few weeks to see so many people throw their support behind Whyte's diva act, (poor Dillian they are only offering him millions!), simply because they hate Fury.

    Usyk doesn’t strike me as the type of chap to get annoyed over this type of thing- he will get his shot eventually.

    Joshua not taking £15 million to do essentially nothing baffles me.

    I’m not sure the dust has settled yet and all the facts have emerged. I’ve read Joshua wanted £25m and Whyte wanted £8m. It was the Saudis putting up the cash but even they said no to that.

    Who knows the true story - I just hope we get the fights officially announced soon.

    Whyte has more one punch power than Fury who hasn`t stopped many lesser fighters in two rounds.

    I just want any of them to fight each other. I don’t care who just get on with it.

    AJ could only take the step aside money if Fury actually interested in in fighting Usyk but he's is not.

    What are you basing this on exactly Mitch? It's all a bit he said she said at the moment, I don't think any rational person would take too much notice of either side as they're all trying to save face.

    We all know you have a personal issue with Fury, but you're obviously not stupid. Even you can see it's all propaganda from the likes of Eddie Hearn and John Fury.
