    This fight has been postponed in suspicious circumstances already.

    Tyson Fury is a man known to be unpredictable.

    Does this fight actually ever happen?

    If it happens with Tyson Fury’s clear lack of motivation what is the result?

    I don't think it goes ahead, 18 months on from the last fight and he's not fought or had a proper camp, he's been posting videos of his gut bouncing around in Oddballs boxer shorts while he plays on the pads, hardly World Champion behaviour. It's alright though, he doesn't need the money, you can't take it with you...

    I hope it goes ahead and I hope Wilder sparks Fury out.

    Got a horrible feeling Wilder is going to get a KO win.

    I think so does Fury, which is why I don't think it goes ahead. If Fury got KO'd I don't think he'd bounce back, I think it would scramble his brains for a considerable amount of time and he hasn't got that time.

    If it doesn’t go ahead Fury needs reliving of his belt.

    Fury is an oddball.
    You can't trust a word he says and then come fight night if he says he's going to come forward and smash you up then you better believe it.
    I wouldn't read too much into his antics just yet. He's light years ahead of Wilder in terms of skill. As long as he gets sparing right he should be fine. I don't expect Wilder to do anything different

    Just say it goes ahead and he beats Wilder again, I can imagine him going inactive for another 12-18 months and holding the division up again.

    Really hope it goes ahead, my gut feeling says it doesn't. If it does and both men have prepared properly then I'd pick Fury to win convincingly again.

    Come on guys he's already beaten him twice and will beat him a 3rd time no matter what shape he turns up in.

    I think it goes ahead. I also think it’s another easy nights work for Fury.

    Any more nonsense from Fury, he needs to be stripped and he should just retire.

    However, Warren seems determined to go ahead with Oct 9 Arthur - Yarde (apparently being announced tomorrow assuming he wins & despite, Eddie having a big show that night) so he & BT clearly think it’s going ahead.

    Obviously, it’s Fury so personally I’m not getting switched on this until it’s fight week. I also wonder how the ticket sales will go - I can’t see any taking any risks to book fights etc either until the last minute, which will also put pressure on the promoters.

    It goes ahead and Wilder gets battered even worse than last.

    The lack of promotion is concerning - same before it was postponed.

    Could go either way ( I not convinced Fury is anywhere near the standard he was pre retirement and Wilder is a very limited fighter with a cherry picked padded record)but I favour Fury based on the first two fights.
