    Some other facts.

    There doesn’t appear to have been a PPV fight in America in February for seventeen years. If Super Bowl was such a great way to advertise your fight then it would make sense for big February fights to be more commonplace. But all the big names never seem to fight in February.

    People have suggested the fight could do a million UK buys. If that were to be the case if would generate somewhere in the region of thirty-six million dollars. Hardly small change. Yet here we are, less than six weeks from fight night, and still no answer.

    Your ‘facts’ about ‘Big John’ seem to stem from believing what ‘Big John’ says.

    What’s an eleventh man?

    My mistake. I meant to say ‘in February.’ Now edited.

    Brlliant! No Adam Smith, no Bellew, no Nelson. That's a good start!

    Adam Smith is infinitely better than John Rawling.

    Not sure which I prefer. Rawling is poor at scoring fights and isn't much of an analyst at all but **** me Smith just recycles his tombola of platitudes time and time again

    BT deserved to get the fight after having to broadcast the last 2 Fury bum fights on PPV.

    Plus, Big John if he’s in the studio will be comedy gold- especially if Tyson gets splattered as I suspect might be the case.

    Yup, his scoring is so bad. He picks a narrative from the beginning and just runs with it. His commentary for Golovkin Canelo 2 was shocking. You’d think GGG won by a landslide.

    This is the fight that will highlight a great boxer will 9/10 beat a great puncher, wilder has started to rely far to much on his power it was blatant against Ortiz that he didn't bother trying to win rounds he was just waiting to land that one punch !! That's all fine for wilder as he has the equaliser but there will come a point when he doesn't land and he will lose heavily on the scorecards. Fury will completely shut out wilder this time it will be a Klitschko performance not great to watch but a comfortable victory

    I would say this was most likely scenario .... except Fury, while no doubt in great shape, is 31 years old now, with some bad lifestyle years behind him, and looked kind of bad in his last fight.

    Fury was subdued during the presser but this is a funny interview. He jokingly said he's masturbating seven times a day and now all the media outlets are reporting it :D

    Short interview with Sugarhill. Not a lot in it. I'm yet to hear anything insightful from the man tbh but Andy Lee rates him and I'm happy Lee is in there too.
