    Your analogies are awful man. Truly awful. Wilder/Fury was sold at $75 a pop. Nothing cheap about it. The result was 30+ million dollars generated. More than any matchroom PPV that AJ wasn't involved in. You seem to be the only person out there dissapointed with that figure, Tony. What a pity.

    I don’t see why you get so upset about Fury’s lack of popularity. This is boring. You’ve reacted badly to Joshua getting good press because you’re a Fury fanboy and cannot deal with any negativity.

    Why February? Wouldn't it be better to push it to March.

    Any later than that and they go too close to Cinco de Mayo.

    - You've been proven wrong again so you're resorting to poor personal insults

    - I've given Joshua the credit he deserves and I'm genuinely happy for the man.

    - This is a thread about Fury/Wilder 2 which I didn't start

    Try again.

    Because they've been saying its set for the 22nd for months. Even when people were bringing up the fury cut and the closeness to Wilder Ortiz 2

    Cant see this one happening when scheduled because of both men. Wilder doesnt tend to fight twice in 6 months. Fury had a very bad cut that will need longer than a few months to heal.

    I think this one has April/May/June written all over it.

    I only see Fury making a conflict or change of date. Fury had a huge cut that needed to heal, and he said that his schedule may make the fight not go through. They can't delay to March so I'd say April 2020 latest.

    Fury isn’t as popular as Joshua and at the time of the Wlad fight wasn’t really very popular at all. I don’t think many people would dispute that though.

    Here we are again:

    men earning (presumably) a few thousand pounds a year arguing vociferously over how many tens of millions of pounds man who doesn’t know you exist a will earn vs man who doesn’t know you exist b will earn.

    Go at it ladies. Who knows you might snare one of em eventually

    According to Joe Tessitore, Ward & Bradley, commentating on Lopez - Commey, on Top Rank, it is still set for the 22nd February.

    People said the same about the first fight.

    Including leader of the cult, Mr Eddie Hearn.

    You don't think its weird a huge heavyweight rematch is not many weeks away now but no official date, venue or more importantly in a country like America...no PR to advertise it
