    I can’t wait man. I think Usyk will be in the best condition of his career and come through. Wear Joshua out and end the fight with a barrage around 9 or 10.

    You can’t win !! Fans calling for fighters to drop there promoter for trying to make the hardest and possibly the best fight available , but the same fans would be slating him if he went for an easier route and avoiding the Usyk fight !!! It’s hilarious some of the **** you read on here.

    Joshua won't have as much problems with Usyk than he did with Ruiz. Anyone thinks Usyk will be able to take the bodybuilder''s power like the blob did, are in for a rude awakening. This will look similar to the Povetkin fight in my opinion. I don't doubt he'll win a lot of rounds, but that puny cruiserweight is gonna eat something big.

    Again, just to remind anyone who's conveniently forgotten. Usyk was being outboxed by Tony Bellew until age, and not weighing 200lbs for years finally caught up.

    Yes Tony Bellew, not Ali...

    Looks like it won`t be Joshua vs Usyk, as i was saying!
    Pulev said that the match with Joshua is 90% done. The venue will be either Turkey as was said or Saudi Arabia. UK is the last option.
    Its also been said that the Pulev will get 35% from this total revenue.
    Wasn`t mandatory earning 20% or 25% ?

    Tony did land some shots, right before Usyk knocked him out brutally. Wilder has been outboxed in almost every one of his fights, right before he lands a knockout shot. I thought Usyk fought a pretty smart fight, letting Bellew tire himself out before taking him out. I suspect he will try to fight a heavyweight differently. How well he will do at the weight is yet to be determined. Not sure you watched any Ali fights but he got hit a few times in many fights, often against inferior opponents. He usually landed more punches or knocked the guy out. It’s boxing, not chess.

    I’ve said from the start the HW experiment Usyk is attempting is still a major risk. He’s giving up a lot of size and is not a big puncher. He’s also 33 years old and might not be able to move as well at this weigh especially as he ages. I hope we get to see him against at least one of the big guys, AJ, Fury or Wilder. It’s great to see a guy want to fight top guys. Wish there were more guys like this in boxing.

    It used to be 25 but the IBF recently changed their rules so mandatory challengers now take the small end of a 65/35 purse split.

    You think the fight will look like the Povetkin fight?? Lol Why the **** would you think that?? Usyk is a much different boxer than Povetkin. Slicker, quicker, better gas tank, better footwork.

    Parker vs Usyk continues to look far more likely....

    Yep - seems like AJ will not need to vacate anything now

    Expect him to fight both Pulev and Usyk this year.....
