    Agreed.

    He suffers from the biggest case of imposter syndrome that Boxing has ever knew.

    Tell me when he defended the belts multiple times and beat the top 5. I'll wait...

    So called greatest, yet he needs more tune ups than an F-1 car!

    I put him in the same category as Mayweather: Someone who Boxing would be better off without.

    Now that I have seen BT confirm and also the American tv distributer, they’ve started doing media with Warren/Tyson as-well today, I’m quite confident now.

    I don’t think BT and even Top Rank were sure what Tyson was doing and they’ve now had assurances that he’s going to turn up, it should be all systems go.

    However, with Fury you can never be certain until fight night.

    It all depends upon Fury's psychological attachment to reality at this point. He's not entirely different from people that I know who absolutely require a strong emotional attachment to something in order to succeed with it. If so, he's turned on like a switch and ready for anything. If not, well, this that we've seen since the ordered trilogy.

    Loads of people said the first and second fight weren't happening for similar reasons. Then they did happen. If it doesn't happen then what? Another three months of inactivity for two fighters that have no where else to go and are still contractually obliged to face each other.

    Yep looks like this is happening for real personally I'm not really fussed but if the rubber match gets Wilder out of the way so Fury can face the winner of AJ - Usyk then so be it.

    Really ?? Honestly don't remember any doubts that fights one and two were going to happen during the buildup my memory is that it was all fairly standard and straightforward.

    Fight happens- Fury likely wins on points. The only chance Wilder has got is if Fury has not trained/prepared correctly (which is possible but unlikely).

    I’m not interested in this fight at all- I’d rather either man was fighting Whyte.

    This is not a rubber match. The first was officially a draw and the second was a Fury win.

    I can't wait to see this contest. And Joshua vs Usyk.

    Fury the only man to consistently seek the best out and box them in their preferred arena. He is a sensation, it has to be said.

    Massive kudos to Fury for what he did in Düsseldorf and Las Vegas but ATG status is NOT sealed by beating a faded ageing champion in Klitschko and then an enigma in Wilder. He’s miles off ATG and needs a handful of decent defences and undisputed to even be mentioned alongside the modern heavyweight greats like Lewis, Holyfield, Tyson etc

    Fury optimistically going to fight more times in the next 18 months than he’s done in the last 6 years
