    This will be second time these guys have been preparing to fight each other. I am guessing AJ's yearly schedule is going to be June and December fights from now on.

    I don't think Pulev really planned to fight Joshua last time. He looked to delay the fight several times saying he needed more time, had promotional issues and then pulled out with a dubious injury.

    There was no need to wait 6 or 7 months to fight someone easy like old Pulev, the fight should be in April not June.

    Joshua KOes him with a left hook.
    Old Wlad destroyed prime Pulev easily.

    Pulev is old and washed up, another old man that Joshua will face, either that or obese blobs.

    Does June 20th have anything significant related? Will the European cup be on then or Wimbledon? I always seem to remember there being a big fight the same evening as the champions league final

    That was Froch v Kessler 2, same night as CL final. The date is dictated to be June as the Joshua Pulev fight has to be in a big stadium and none will be available until after the football season ends. Wembley Probs not available at all as being used for euro 2020 too.

    The IBF is a disgrace to push an old bum like Pulev as their mandatory.

    Team Wilder who has done an excellent job managing him and steering clear of opponents ranked way below him that could upset him, and not matching him vs. anyone in the top ten in their prime. His teams also understands his prime is about up, which is why they took the Fury fight. If Wilder wins, I do think he'll want Joshua next. Joshua might take the fight after Wilder's ages in late 2020 or early 2021, knowing that Wilder won't take another title match until this one is made. Joshua vs Pulev doesn't; need to happen in March, It could be a June fight. That means Wilder will be 35 and rusty for Wilder. Joshua is 4 year younger, and in a year or 2 that could matter.

    Wilder is not a technical fighter. He's rather limtied and relies cheifly on a wind up right hand, which has speed and snap in it. However he's 34 now, and sooner of later, his speed will decrease.

    I'm not saying Wilder is on soemthing but he's been rather smug about drug testing. His body from the waist up is very impressive, and he didn't look this way staring out. He has also been lucky on the cards. Shelly Finkel is very sharp and connected. That coudl have something to do with it.

    Hold up, they haven't asked my permission, N17 is mine, it belongs to me.

    I'll give Hearn and AJ permission if they ask nicely and maybe throw in a few solid tickets, but they should not just assume they can walk in to my manor and start running things.

    Wimbledon is starting on June 29th this year. There is an England match on in the 19th.

    Hoe I can see the match on the new stadium. One of my fond memories, as a student in London, was my mates dragging me to WHL to watch Totenham. Loved that team ever since.

    No chance will it be 20th June. I hope I'm wrong because I'll be on holiday for the European championships.

    I think it will be late may or very early June before the tournament starts.
