    Yeah I wouldn’t get upset by it, I just don’t take a word he says seriously, even though at times he probably is being genuine. I’m going by what he actually does at this point. At the end of the day he is an interesting character in the sport, so my main concern would be that he is done with it all and doesn’t really have the desire to get back in there.

    No expert but I think Fury is more ADHD than mental health/depression issues.

    He is always looking happy and smiling while coming out with random statements to gain attention when he is bored.

    Could easily be exposed next month if Wilder lands one.

    Yep. Basically. And notice how is hasn't come up since. Well, unless you count when he was getting obliterated on Twitter for faking Covid. All of a sudden, the mental health crap came up out of the blue again. This dude is a con man and a fraud

    Well its all a bit murky as it was about a year on from the initial fail when they decided to proceed with it. So in that time he had prepared for and beaten Wlad.

    I hope the promoters are expecting a lot of "last minute" ticket sales because it does not look good at the moment with 4 weeks to go.......

    click on buy tickets and you can see how many seats have been sold so far.

    It looks like it's about 250 quid for a seat up in the Gods, I wouldn't even be paying that if I lived next door to the arena.

    We heard the same for the first fight and second fight. A week before the second fight, Hearn said ticket sales weren't looking great, the fight actually did $17 million in gate receipts, more in ticket sales than any AJ fight.

    Vegas high rollers don't buy tickets until the week of the fight.

    You also have to factor in the UK-USA travel ban which has not helped, Fury would bring over around 5-10k. If there was no travel ban, the fight would pretty much be sold out already.

    Fair enough - In that case I look forward to the fight .

    Are the Vegas high rollers going to be buying all the $350 seats that are still available at the back of the arena?

    Quite a few blocks at the top nearly fully sold if u click on them.

    Not surprised they cant shift them though. Charging an absolute fortune to watch a 3rd fight no one wants to see

    No, those tickets will be for the daytrippers around Vegas.

    It's normal to have tickets remaining on the day of the event.

    If you put on an event and your tickets sell out quickly, it just means you priced the tickets incorrectly. Matchroom and AJ do that regularly. You want tickets remaining as the hype really kicks in a couple of weeks before.

    It's better to sell 80% of capacity at $500 than sell 100% of capacity at $200.

    He hasn't improved, he'll get splattered around the ring again. Fury is just all wrong for Wilder. You gotta hve more than a straight right which gets thrown about 4 times a fight to beat Fury.

    If you like milking every single £ out of your fans then maybe. Strange that the people’s champion Tyson Fury the Spartan does this and not Matchroom and the business man AJ.
