    Haha quality. Deep down I reckon Tyson also wishes him luck at the end of these conversations. They both know that there’s a likelihood they could both make each other scores of millions down the line in a fight. They are like business partners really.

    Love that, hahaha.

    Totally unrelated, but a friend of mine died a few months ago from a heart attack. He was 58, and was a lovable rogue and still built like a brick **** house at that age. He had quite the past but had eventually become a comedian. Which takes me to a random phone call he made to Jason Manford (before the success)...

    Jason: (answers phone) Hello?
    Greg: Jase...got any tear gas?
    Jason: Eh?
    Greg: Oh, sorry, wrong Jason (puts phone down).

    Leaving Manford baffled. It was him who told me about it and we wandered for ages what he wanted it for. Not sure why it reminds me of that but it made me chuckle.

    @Canvassed you we’re saying...

    You don’t just drop that much size from being out of camp. Joshua has been training every day from what I can see on social media and if anything the intensity of camp would actually make it harder to maintain muscle. I know the first picture is with a hormone induced pump but anyone who can’t see that Joshua has intentionally dropped some size here is in denial.

    Doesn't actually look like that much difference to me. Welcome to lighting, pump and magazine shoot, compared to out of camp dark shot.

    If you want an accurate side by side comparison just look at the press conference head to heads at both fight press conferences.

    AJ himself says he doesn't care about weight, he focuses more on feel and how he feels in sparring.

    Those 2 pictures :
    Doesn't look that much different really.
    It's the angle he's stood at in relation to camera, the way he's holding his head and neck back in the first one, plus superior lighting and the pump from working out, as mentioned by Canvassed.

    Hearn says :
    "Saudi Arabia are trying to showcase to the world via sport and entertainment 'we are changing'. There's no better message than delivering that."

    Are you ****ing kidding, Eddie ?
    Hearn's way out of his depth here. Clueless.

    Aye there attempts at showcasing their nation by knocking off a journo last year failed. I suppose this has a little bit more legs to work.

    I would have so much more respect for them if they just come out and said "look we want money they offered us a lorry load of the stuff, deal with it"

    Yeah, or (to put it in differnt words) the old standby : "I'm not a politician, I'm a businessman."
    He's making a big error trying to spin the ethical/poliitical issues to his advantage.
