    Just seems pretty obvious you hate him, can't stop posting about him, disparage him at any opportunity and can't bring yourself to say anything positive about him.

    Actually, that would be an interesting challenge - can you say 5 positive things about him? (backhand compliments don't count)

    I think your issue is that you don't acknowledge that not everything I say is negative about him.

    Take the Klitschko fight. Great game plan, executed to perfection. That doesn't mean that I have to like the fight, (I think it was one of the worst adverts for boxing of all time), or think that there was no mitigation for Klitschko's dreadful performance.

    Bizarre. For such a big fight and big promoters/managers involved it appears like they’re just winging it.

    It’s very unusual regardless what your position is concerning who wins. Strange time of year to announce it, strange time of year to put on such a big fight, weird lack of publicity. I mean, UK television coverage isn’t the biggest issue going but it’s still weird to think it’s scheduled to be happening six weeks today and there’s still no announcement.

    Press conference on Monday in LA.

    After the first bout between these two I could only envisage the rematch being massive, but is it now conceivable that this actually does worse numbers than the first fight! Boxing really is dead in America if so!?

    Having the press conference this late might actually help the numbers though.

    No chance. It will smash the first numbers, especially with a joint show.

    I agree this fight has become an anti climax.
    When the first fight was done, everyone would have been keen for the rematch immediately.
    They both had pointless bouts in between and it’s been poorly promoted.
    I don’t think the interest in this fight is anywhere near what it could have been.
    I think Wilder wins by ko, I think the weight gain/loss/mental issues has caught up with Tyson and the change of trainer is a way of looking for something that’s isn’t there anymore, and Davidson’s been the fall guy

    Lets establish some facts here boys, because some of you are feeling a little left out.
    • The UK PPV market is peanuts for Arum. He does not give a damn about cheapskate £19.99 PPV buyers who whinge when they have to pay an extra fiver. $99 US PPV is where it is at.
    • Fury has been all over US TV for months, chat shows, game shows, radio shows, podcasts, sports the lot. Even WWE. (most recently at college football weekend estimated audience 80million)
    • Wilder does not want to meet Fury before the fight because he know's Fury has the advantage to get in his head. Fury is a master of this, remember Klitshcko? This is his 11th man, his Fergie time.
    • Big John did not want Fury doing too much media work DURING CAMP and alluded they had it written into the contract as such. Fury has been in full camp since before Christmas.
    • There will be a meeting at Superbowl, does not get any bigger than that.
    • BT have not answered Sky's offer yet, as soon as it is confirmed as Sky PPV it will be all over SSN and the casuals will lap it up as usual.

    You sound like you’re trying to convince yourself.
