    Interesting there’s no DAZN on the poster.

    I just came on here to post the same... "Clash on the Dunes" was bad enough!

    Matchroom gets more and more like 80s WWF every year. The whole notion of creating characters, becoming a media business first, sport second, showcasing 'stars' by having them beat no-hopers on the cheap cards, biggest fights only on pay TV - you name it. The only thing missing is Hearn doing a heel turn and joining the fight roster himself.

    It seems strange. Also noticed it in connection with Matchroom´s event down under. DAZN´s logo is normally always on the poster.

    Hearn did say the TV deals would be announced separately after the fight, if I remember right.

    Call it what you like but it will be another easy nights work for Usyk.

    Joshua’s last throw of the dice and he knows it.

    If, and it’s a massive If Usyk does a number on him and then goes into a undisputed with Fury then for me Fury really does retire after that regardless of the outcome of their fight.

    Joshua is in no man’s land for 18 months after getting beat here. Doesn’t look like Wilder is going to fight again, A Whyte rematch possibly? That’s the only possible fight for him after this. The belts will possibly be fragmented.

    The HW division looks a mess due to the age of the lads at the top table just now.

    Press Conference on Tuesday.

    AJ was in the Sunday Times Business section this morning - has taken a 15 per cent in Pulseroll (Massage equipment)

    Joshua just has to stick it on him. Forget trying to be to be this and that, get the win at all costs.

    "Rage on the red sea" = Shannon is on the undercard and this time she'll make weight!

    So if Usyk loses does he get a rematch? This shouldn't even be happening. Joshua was soundly beaten. No need for a rematch.

    I pray Joshua comes out double lively in the early rounds, tries to rough up our Ukrainian hero and ends up getting brutally stopped in the 6th.

    I want to see Joshua on the floor, ruined.
