    I think those hoping Hearn ends up in tears won't ever really see their dream come true.

    Let's say the above happens and in the midst of Wilder and Joshua going to war Joshua gets caught and gets stopped. The rematch is arguably even bigger. Hearn will make even more money.

    When you get to Joshua's level people aren't going to put off by you losing. Didn't happen with Lewis, or Tyson, or Holyfield. In this country it didn't happen with Bruno, Khan, Froch or Haye. All of those ended up in massive fights after they lost. Indeed, their biggest fights were after they'd been beaten. Hatton's biggest fight was against Floyd but even after that he could still do stadium fights domestically and do megamoney in Vegas.

    Genuinely think it's more hope than expectation for some as to what a Joshua loss would mean for Joshua and Hearn.

    aint no spanner at all chief.... either easily pack enough pop to spark the other IMO. I think its a great match up, AJ is defo the better technically, much better feet also and might actually find it quite easy to land the straight punches. However Wilder is far quicker with his punches and could come of better in the exchanges in close where is wild swings can land.

    The only bet I would put on with any certainty is for the fight not to go the 12.

    It's really not that deep Tony. I just think it would be quite funny to see Hearn's reaction if Wilder KO'd Joshua, that's all.

    I actually quite like Hearn but you seem to have got it into your head that anyone who doesn't like Joshua and wants to see him lose by proxy dislikes Matchroom, Hearn and wants the whole operation to fail. In my case that isn't true.

    I think people read more into this then they need to. Hearn will be more than aware that Wilder is easily capable of sparking AJ, it will be more a gutted/disappointing look rather than anything shocking or that.

    I dont see the point in living in bitterness towards other people.

    Agreed - hence me describing it as 'quite funny' and something I'd 'love to see'. I'd like it to happen, but if it doesn't - I'm not exactly going to lose any sleep over it.

    No bitterness from me - perhaps you are the one reading into my post too much.

    maybe .... however many other posters just wanna see people suffer and start to get worked up at the prospect of something unpleasant happening to someone more than the joy out of a certain fighter winning.

    Here it came across like you would like to see Wilder win purely to see the look on Hearn's face. I just wanna see the guy who deserves to win, win...Like i said i dont see the point in taking pleasure out of others suffering. Granted this may be taking it bit far in terms of "struggling" when talking about Hearn. In reality he wins regardless of what happens in fact he has already won big time!.

    You're right - on this forum there's alot of people who invest far too much in the fighters emotionally and get a bit wierd about it all.

    And no, if you read my post - I was replying to another poster who'd expressed an opinion on how the fight go. That wasn't me making a comment on the fight generally. You've read into my post and taken a meaning from it that doesn't exist.

    I think it's a great fight and I'm really pleased that it could be finally happening. I have no issue with Hearn so no reason to want to see him 'lose' or 'win'. I don't particularly like Joshua though, and I'd be amused to see Hearn's reaction if Joshua lost by KO because they're incredibly confident of beating Wilder.

    fair do's mate if im wrong , im wrong, i only read the posts that said you would love to see AJ sparked, and that Hearns reaction would be great.

    I dont see anything wrong in being confident, I dont think Wilder will feel any differently. You need that confidence to make it at the top, I think Fury, Wilder, AJ and even to an extent Whyte would all be very confident of picking up a win against each other.

    Each of those Jaguar workers got the chance to go 12 rounds with AJ. That poor girl is still in plastic surgery but she'll never forget her special day.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for this, it's more than plausible it could be another Mayweather vs Paquiao, or Khan Brook scenario. I. E. Years of posturing, TV Network clashes, schedule clashes, break down in negitions, it will probably finally happen just before one of them is about to retire.

    Wilder even started slagging his own fight off in the press conference. 'It ain't good enough fo PPV' then after Finkel presumably kicked him under the table he tried to change his tune.

    ****e this. Fury Wilder won’t happen until early next year at the earliest too apparently.

    So what next for the 3? Pulev for Joshua? Hopefully Whyte for Wilder and god knows for Fury?
