    A simple reasoned response would suffice. I guess that's beyond you.

    Well you are saying it's "all about money" when winning the fight would result in far bigger paydays down the line against Wilder and Fury and even opponents such as Whyte.

    Unless you are suggesting this is a total cash-out and neither Matchroom or Joshua have any confidence in Joshua's ability to beat Ruiz.

    Lads, who really gives one about the Ins and Outs eh?

    Main thing is is that the fight is on.

    Signed, Sealed and soon to be Delivered.

    That is all we wanted. The rest of it is and has been pantomime. He said, They said.

    I am simply looking forward to a terrific fight.

    That fight, Christmas, the King George and a decent fight to round off the year would be marvellous.

    I think there will be about 90,000 people who wanted to go see the fight in Cardiff that don't have the means or ability to travel to Saudi.

    It will cost thousands for Brits to go and see the fight in Saudi just before Xmas. Basically all the working class fans who may well be fanatical about boxing have been shafted in favour of some Saudi playboy wankers and wealthy fans from the UK who can afford the costs just weeks before Xmas.

    Apart from that it's all grand.

    Meanwhile Fury fights the mighty Wallin in the working class hub of Las Vegas, Nevada. Even further away, flights, hotels and spends are a lot more expensive.

    But you know, it’s only right we criticise Hearn and Joshua for everything but them rules don’t apply to others.

    I do. Fury's a blagging male reproductive appendage. I don't drink the traveller kool-aid at all I'm sorry. It's 80% style 20% substance with all of them.

    He's clearly on a twighlight of his career cash grab and will continue to fight bums as long as the numbers make sense. Which they will, unfortunately.

    His rabid army will continue to screech from the rooftops how he is literally, the best HW ever for sticking his tongue out mid-rounds. This just propagates the whole process over and over again of him fighting bums and literally TELLING everyone how good he is.

    I'll say this for Joshua, as stage-managed as he is, he doesn't give it big licks about being the next coming of Ali.
