    In all seriousness if they don't make the fight for early September at the latest with the return booked in and announced at the same time they should both be stripped so the division can move on.

    The entire division is on standby it's a joke

    Again Understandable. But Fury claimed he didn't care about the money and that all he cares about is destroying other fighters like a spartan. If that were true he'd sugn the contract anyway and would be training to KO the glass jaw bodybuilder. But from the looks of it thats not going to happen

    Pacquiao and Spence both drew 40,000. If they provide a good undercard, with some locals
    and some Mexicans it will draw 75,000 because people will come to Dallas for it. Excellent hookers, casinos up the road in Oklahoma, good places to eat, and excellent hookers.
    And strip clubs full of hot women. And hookers. Easy to get here by plane from anyway,
    including the UK .

    it will eventually happen... but just know, this is a $150 million dollar fight... usually in business, a deal thats worth that much money can take up to a year to negotiate... it will eventually happen.

    Neither guy has the following like Pac and Spence is a local kid. Spence tickets were also very reasonable in price. Pac fighting Margarito and Spence fighting Garcia helped too with the very large Hispanic population. If they drop the ticket price who knows but if they are looking to cash out with the crazy price in the gulf. Good luck with that.

    They should move the fight to Florida or Texas.

    Fury vs Joshua is not a huge fight in the US. It certainly doesn't fill a stadium.

    The MGM Grand would probably be the best venue depending on when Vegas opens up. I think they could get around 15,000 people to pay 1k a ticket. Vegas high rollers will be interested.

    All of the above is based on Brits not being able to fly.

    Getting awfully late for a fight of this magnitude for July.

    If they are both at fault, I'd want them both to lose their next fight.

    One of my sons in law is English. Lives in Austin and loves it, obviously especially for the weather. Hopefully not for the hookers.

    Negotiations have proven difficult time after time when when dealing with AJ, and a fighter who has a good chance at defeating him. Negotiations break down, then AJ’s team (Hearns) likes to spin this in the public domain. However, I will also add dealing with Fury has always been a headache.
