    LaughIng at all you people slating fury.

    The man went to Germany, on the back of a win over Hammer where he sported a massive belly, and took the titles by outboxing the man that couldn’t be outboxed.

    Comes back, loses about 10 stone, takes on a midget and a top 100 guy, then (in reality) beats wilder, in America. On wilders terms.

    Then he takes on an undefeated highly ranked opponent (WBO no.2 IBF no.9) and signs the rematch with wilder. In America again.

    What more do you want??

    Providing they don’t lose beforehand Fury and Wilder have played a blinder here. They’ve come together through their dislike of Hearn and pulled the rug from underneath him even down to announcing it the day before AJ fights. Well played. Best thing AJ can do is fight Usyk next, any other fight will fall well short of Fury - Wilder 2 in terms of interest and he’ll lose some of his A side that he cares so much about

    Basically Wilder and Fury have pulled Eddie’s pants down and Big John Fury will come through with his tunnel boring machine-like nine-incher and seal the deal.

    No homo.

    Probably suits Hearn and AJ. Let’s not forget precious Anthony only fights twice a year. Deal with Pulev, then id expect him to fight Dillian summer of 2020, fight Usyk winter 2020, then Wilder or Fury summer of 2021.

    Fury and Wilder fight April 2020, probably rematch September/October. Tune up early 2021, before the winner taking AJ summer 2021.

    Problem is I’d fully expect someone to upset the apple cart, that could well be Usyk.

    It’s quite clear whats going on here.

    The three biggest names in the HW division are Fury, Wilder and Joshua. In terms of money AJ probably brings the most and is probably the best (debateable) of the three of them.

    Wilder and Fury have essentially entered a deal to free AJ out so that they can do 2 things -
    1) Not risk having to fight him anytime soon.
    2) When the time does come to fight him they can go ahead and press for a 50/50 as by that stage they can claim they’ve had the bigger fights.

    I suspected this would happen when we didnt get Fury Wilder 2 after the first fight. It’s clever but frustrating for boxing fans as even if you are an AJ hater you still want to see the biggest fights.

    Very good point about Usyk, if he presses a claim for no 1 contender for any of the belts (which i think he can do as he was champion weight below or that may just be some of the organisations) will wilder or AJ take the risk before fighting one another.

    Usyk doesn’t tick enough boxes to be Chinny robot fodder:

    Shot
    Fat
    Shoite
    Midget CHECK

    Only 1/4 is way too much of a dangerman at this stage

    Compared to Ruiz who is a cool 3/4 if not the full house

    While also putting himself in prime position to go to the money man in the division AJ and have a strong case to get a 50/50 deal (at least) when the time comes. Fair play to him.

    Would love another controversial decision just so there is demand for wilder - fury 3.

    JUST FOR THE LOOK ON HEARNS FACE WHEN IT GETS SIGNED AND AJ STARTS FLIRTING WITH UNCLE AL

    Trilogy at least but certainly looks like Wilder v Fury could be the best of 10 Steve Davis frames

    That’s why Eddie has run away to America. Big John’s visa issues mean he can’t get to Eddie’s flapping arsehole.

    Hearn has in theory worked a miracle in getting Haymon and Arum to work together!

    What's funny about this fight is alleged boxing fans will be disappointed that Fury isn't fighting bums. They'd much rather he fought bums so they can criticise him. Weirdos!

    Huge credit to the big man for stepping up once again. I understand now why Arum won't let him in with Whyte. No point taking the risk, although Whyte isn't much of a risk IMO.
