Yeah, like all his title defenses pre Fury.
Bum Squad resumption.
He is finished , there are new players in the town .
As long as he uses them wisely this time round. Saying that though he is getting very old for a boxer now, he probably does not have time for it. The ship has sailed I guess.
If he's smart, a tune-up. Its perfectly fine after 2 brutal beatings he got from Fury. He might take a couple to get his buzz going again, but I think someone beats him many won't expect to win.
Helenius would be good fight. He won two fights with good KOs and people gave him credit.
Stiverne or Arreola
Judging by the way Fury spoke of him last week, Gal could be in line for Fury. The latter is going to need to fight someone in the first half of next year while waiting for the Usyk v AJ rematch winner. Not sure he'll be inclined to make the *mandatory* against Dillian Whyte. Interesting situation b/c the WBC won't want to strip him either.
his management team has been calling and attempting to set up a fight in 2024 around June with either Mr. Tomato Can or Mr. Potato Head.
If I was his manager I would have him fight Charles Martin then Ruiz jr.
If he can get an Usyk fight for the belts he should take it.
He always took easy fights before Fury
I don't really mind, as long as it's building to a date with Joshua. Can't see the latter reversing his recent defeat when the rematch comes, so it's just a matter of them both taking some time to recoup, taking a tune-up fight each and then meeting at some point in 2023.
Whoever they happen to find under the bridge, in the emergency room, or passed out in the dumpster behind the local gin joint in Tuscaloosa.
If konashki (Adam) wants a final paycheck, sure. If Robert helenius wants to sharpen his steel he can get some (realistic fight knowing that the Nordic nightmare has put in a great performance). I think the two best fights that can be made right now in the hw division would be the REAL boxers: fury vs usyk, and the HYPED boxers: wilder vs AJ.
When it comes to skill and acumen, usyk and fury have it for days. Let's be honest, dw and AJ no matter how good they are are second rate. There is a stupid rematch though, usyk is gonna kick AJ's ass again, and what is the bodybuilder gonna do differently this time?
He should take a tune up in January, then Andy Ruiz or Dylan Whyte in April.
If he successfully clears that hurdle then he should gun for loser of AJ vs Usyk II.
If he wins that, then go straight for the title shot.
