    Lennox Lewis couldn't even get him to jab properly, chances of Wilder suddenly developing a more versatile jab is highly unlikely. Better chance of Fury showing up several lbs lighter and coming in with better stamina, he's done it before, while in comparison Wilder has never had a good jab.

    You can basically treble your money by having it in the UK. And Wilder knows it.

    Sometimes you need to leave home to fulfil your dreams.

    We're seeing that with another American h/w in Michael Hunter.

    It's time for the Alabama Slammer to hit the road to the UK.

    Fight the King of the North in Manchester & if successful, march South to London & lay siege to the Alphabet King.

    Well this is what he said about fighting Fury in 2013

    ''I would fight him anywhere," said Wilder. "I'm a traveller, a global fighter, I fight anywhere all over the world that's how you become legendary. You become legendary by not being afraid to go into enemy territory when the time comes or when duty calls.''

    Cool, let's have it over in the UK, only Fury gets to dictate the size of the ring this time and we'll have an English ref for this one too, hopefully one who is a fan of the British Stoppage who'll wave it off prematurely when a 60% (not 50% like last time) Fury drops Donkey on his face.

    That said, let's not forget how Donkey tried to dictate terms to Wlad back in 2015 when a fight between them was being mooted. Wlad was the reigning three-belt unified king, had reigned for almost a decade, defended his world title (s) 18 times, fought god knows how many top 10 ranked opponents, and was both a star and the A-side to Donkey's Z-side. Conversely, Donkey held one belt, had beaten one top 10 ranked opponent and had only made one defence of his tile, against the twice KO'd in one round glass-jawed Eric Molina, and nobody in Tuscaloosa knew who the hell Donkey was back then, let alone in the rest of the world.



    ''We not going nowhere; we're going to stay right here in America. We're going to bring him here, sometime maybe mid or end of next year,' Wilder said via Floydhype. 'I won't rest in this sport until I achieve all the belts. Klitschko wants what I have. I am the legitimate heavyweight; I'm the heavyweight champion of the world. He looked real old.'

    'I got the most precious, most well-known belt in boxing, the WBC Heavyweight champion.''

    ''I'm the legitimate champion because I have what people want, the WBC title. I got the belt that all the greats I had. That's why Wladimir Klitschko wants what I have. I got that belt so we sitting good, so I'm the legit heavyweight champion''

    Yeah sure why not? John Reiss did a stellar job the other night but The Gypsy King did fight Donkey in the US with a US ref so Donkey can return the favour. Fair's fair.

    Yes, it would make a lot more money if they fight in the UK.

    It would be a good way for Wilder to cash out, but his handlers know he'll lose to Fury, who will be in better fighting condition for the rematch. So they'll want to keep him in his home country, where he has a better chance of holding onto his belt.

    Fury had 2 British judges in the first fight, while Deontay had one Mexican judge. So if the fight goes to Britain, Deontay should be given the same courtesy. There should be two US judges for Deontay, and let Fury have a judge from the Republic of Ireland.

    Exactly as I see it


    For business reasons, the fight should be at a mega stadium like in Wemberly in England


    but we know Wilder will want to avoid the fight entirely, so he will claim it HAS in the USA, again


    but that’ll be his way of avoiding the rematch because he now knows fury is more than he can handle

    In England it will make at least twice the money it would in the USA..... but that does not matter to Wilder, because he don’t really want the fight


    in my opinion


    But we shall see

    As long as he gets to take his Mexican judge with him I'd imagine he would be happy to go..

    If Tyson Fury wants the rematch then he will need to fight in the USA again. No way does Wilder agree to travel because he has held onto his belt.
