    You are delusional if you think Fury can’t knock out Wilder. Of course he can. In that 12th round he hurt Wilder and Wilder retreated for the last minute of the round after having Fury almost out for the count. There’s a reason why Wlad and Wilder didn’t go for broke to land a KO. Fury can knock anyone out, it’s heavyweight boxing.

    No offence but you are the worst poster on this forum and don't know anything about boxing, so I refuse to engage in boxing debate with a halfwit.

    You missed my point. The build up will look after itself provided these guys rematch undefeated. Absence in boxing creates hype. Always.

    The Ali act, you cannot contractually agree future fights....the only fight as part of the deal was Breazeale

    I don’t know much about the Ali Act but in practice this happens all the time.

    Matchroom do it a lot. Eggington had agreed terms to box Rios before he was upset by that African fighter. And Fowler was lined up to box Cheeseman provided he beat Fitzgerald.

    You would have to point me to where that is, because I've read the Ali Act, and nowhere does it say future fights can't be contractually agreed.

    Yeah, but they weren’t promotional deals. In a promotional/managerial deal, you cannot contractually agree future fights

    The exit door for the forum is found at the top left of your keyboard if you are becoming upset, annoyed, irritated or seething with rage at other people posting different views and opinions.

    Carry on with the way you are going mate and you will be called out for a straightener by Sugar Ray Sheepskin on here - he is the daddy of the forum known to pull off and eat testicles for a hobby.

    The Ali Act explains it, but with all the legal jargon it can be hard to follow, below breaks it out in layman's terms.

    "A contract between a boxer and promoter is limited to no more than 12 months and contracts wherein a fighter must grant rights to a promoter, or a promoter must grant his rights in a fighter to another promoter, in order to secure a future fight against a specific fighter under contractor with the same promoter are barred."

    Thanks.

    From reading that interpretation, it would seem you are right, but from the actual text in the Ali Act, the only fight that would unenforceable as part of a contract (assuming DAZN, Haymon, Finkel etc...don't have lawyers to prevent fall afoul of the Ali Act), would be the Breazeale fight. That would be the only fight not guaranteed, although, while it wouldn't be enforceable by DAZN (if Wilder had agreed the deal), the Ali Act wouldn't prevent the fight from happening.

    I think AJ beats Ruiz mid rounds but Hearn is dumb to look past Ruiz. Don’t think it’s smart to take Joshua’s attention away from Ruiz with a potential post-fight dressing room meeting.

    Invite Wilder let him be ringside, have a sit down lunch the day after. Ruiz is no punk *****, he’ll go down fighting.

    I’m not sure he will. Let’s face it he is a pudding. His best days are probably behind and when Joshua wants to be he can be vicious. He knew he had to put on a show in the USA, at MSG and now after Wilder he definitely does. Joshua inside 3/4 rounds for me.
