    Nah it easily sells out Joshua very popular and Brits love any big boxing event plus Brit undercards for big fights tend to be quite good ,ppv sales on the otherhand may not be as good

    Maybe but I`d prefer to see it on the undercard of Fury v Usyk, now that would be exciting, the fight is less important than it once was.

    That's why you're not a promoter. Neither is an undercard fighter. Neither will appear on an undercard again.

    Especially not on an undercard to boost sales for two guys who defeated them.

    Neither of them is the best heavyweight in the world though.

    Give it a few years and they might be but that wasn`t my point, I was simply saying Fury v Usyk would add luste to that fight if ity was on the same card because it`s a more important fight.

    I think it would do well to be fair, plus the divided opinions of who wins will be interesting, it was and still would be a very much anticipated fight between these two, one decent puncher against one massive puncher, both capable of knocking the other one out.

    When everyone is a champ, then nobody is a champ.

    Sells Out with absolute ease as Brook v Khan recently showed (20k tickets sold out in around 6 minutes).

    Two big names
    Two big punchers
    Too much history.

    That hardly matters.

    Both are big punchers with histories of pourous defense, gonna be a shootout. Plus fans have been following these two for many years so they have a following beyond their standing.

    Khan- Brook is selling out so I'd imagine Joshua -Wilder would as well. It would be hyped up to no end. Sad part is they will continue to avoid each other.

    It's the next best fight at HW after Fury Usyk. So yes it will sell out. Especially in England, they know how to Sports.

    Brook isn`t a big name, Wilder and AJ are far bigger names than Brook.

    100 percent sells out. Wilder is pretty well known in the uk.

    He was being mentioned across here after he,d only had about 15 fights with his 1st round knockouts etc. Wasnt well known then...but pretty much the target market...casuals and hardcore fans know about wilder over here.
