    Not terrible but not great either.

    USA isn't interested in pretenders, we only come out to see the best vs the best

    What was the size/capacity of the venue?

    You'd expect more people would want to come and see the Schwarz in person, as it's probably a once in a lifetime thing.

    There was 9000 in the arena, those weren't all paid.

    It censors the link but if you Google it will come up.

    And the tickets sold for those matches indicate that as well.

    Good call
    Fury was coming off a lay off and still shedding alot of weight when he went to America and looked to many to have beaten Wilder
    So you are right. He probably wasn't at his best

    Not sure why fans would be too unhappy seeing Fury against the undefeated Schwarz
    I don't see much difference in that fight than I do with wilder facing Duhaupas or Szpilka for example.
    Duhaupas could be argued as one of miller's best wins

    No. But the old timer with binoculars to my right was more legit than the soccer-jersey-wearing family to my left. Japanese crowds seem dead compared to rowdy Fury vs. Schwarz shows... that sounds a lot better to me!
