    Something about being humble, some days are rough, some days are tough.

    Can't wait for it....

    Yeah got to agree the stick he gets is way OTT..not surprising when most on here(good posters in general btw) blatantly have an anti Hearn/dazn/matchroom agenda bordering on obsession.

    The big dosser should face the best fighters around and do his talking in the ring.

    Disgrace that his CV contains only 2 fights with uncertainty (Wlad and Usyk) and somehow he also loses to A. Pudding.

    Eh Day Earn, Team Humble and Puddings Whyte and Chisora are simply conmen milking the mugths dry.

    I'm sure in the clip I seen he even says something along the lines of addressing why he hasn't spoke with Kugan much?

    Could have dreamt that up but pretty sure that's what he said...... so I wonder if thats because of KOOGS close links with Fury and Whyte.

    Or

    I'm just talking absolute bollocks

    Well he could have swirved Usuyk could he not? Didn't do so.

    Not going to go into all over again but whether you think it was AJ or Wilder you can't honestly say they didn't try to make the Wilder fight.

    Who else should he have fought? Ortiz? They offered him the fight and he rejected.

    Fury? Fight was agreed, Fury even announced it.

    I'm struggling to find anyone else who AJ has supposedly avoided?

    He probably would have avoided Usyk had he not looked as average against Chisora

    A carefully managed non elite World Champion is what he is - not much better than Chisora with what is probably a 50/50 fight if Chisora is motivated. Won belts from 2 of the worst puddings seen and defended against not much better with the exception of Old Wlad and Usyk.

    Should he fight live opponents such as Fury, Wilder, Usyk again, Hunter, Joyce, Bakole and Frankie Sanchez - he will end up with 6-7 defeats. His legacy has already been cemented as the 'Champ' who got battered by an out of shape little fatty.

    At the time AJ Wilder would have been one of the biggest fights in world boxing and they offered Wilder 80/20 then 70/30 before relenting and offering him a 60/40 deal with a guarantee of $15m whether he won or lost he’d get 70/30 in the second fight (but would get to choose the location) also the initial deals were multi opponent deals too “Dillian, then AJ” blah blah blah so to be fair to Wilder they negotiated themselves out of a fight (maybe purposely)


    The hate that AJ gets doesn’t really make a difference because it’s combat sports and if we didn’t all have sides it would be boring to follow. Reminds me of the face vs the villain in WWF..

    Mate, you genuinely just don't like him. That's all.

    What you've written is pure nonsense.

    Forget Martin. I'll tell you my thoughts on that: that was a genius move.

    I'd pick ANY top 15 HW to have beaten that Martin, but nobody wanted to know. You'd have to be an idiot not to take easy pickings like that.

    Bakole, Hunter, Sanchez are nobodies at HW. And I like Hunter. Had he fought them you'd have made excuses for why he hasn't fought Hrgovic, Ruiz, Gassiev etc.

    I don't hate AJ, far from it.

    I hate the spin and the lies saying that he was the best thing since sliced bread, when my eyes were telling me something different from the start. And anyone with half a boxing brain could see it too.

    It is the only way he can beat him but can he do it, i somehow doubt it, he puts it on him for a few early rounds, Usyk will just simply ride it out and then turn it on himself and get an early stoppage himself...

    I think it’s right in saying AJ will never cement his legacy unless he beat Fury. He may not even have the chance to prove that as I think he loses the rematch. His only chance is to bulldoze and see if anything lands in the first 3 to 4 rounds IMO.

    Interview will contain a million “listen”……followed by half a million “I’m still learning”.

    He revolutionised boxing in this country so hats off to him, without him we may not be where we are now with TV deals galore and fighters getting decent purses, BUT on a boxing front he just falls short of being a great, anyone who knows boxing has to agree to that.

    That didn't answer the question. I asked who he actively avoided and I think your response says it all. His not avoided a list of fighters. If you think his opposition has been poor it says more about the division than AJ.

    Surely you're opinion on AJ must be how you feel about Wilder? Or did Wilder win his title and then defend it against top level opposition?

    How many 50/50 fights has Fury had?

    I really want to know who Fury and Wilder were fighting while AJ was defending against the worst of the division?
