Spotted everyone's favourite cheeky lad today.

He'll be driving a few more of these after the PPV no doubt.

There’s no way Joshua fights Usyk. He’s all wrong for him & if he’s going to fight someone who’s all wrong for him he might as well fight Fury instead & get paid more

How I see it. You cannot ignore mandatories, it gives structure to the sport. It stops "ducking" and allows a system for people to earn their shot.

While I enjoy the novelty of "all of the belts", I still see the Fury vs AJ winner as "the man". It will have a rematch anyway.

AJ needs to fight Usyk or vacate. Especially as Fury might have to fight Wilder in bout III.

I question somebody becoming mandatory for all the belts on the back of two shitty fights at the weight. Some structure.

Usyk more than deserves the shot. He’s too 5 P4P & unified at cruiser weight.

We could’ve easily had a unified heavyweight champ by now but Joshua & Wilder spent years defending their belts & not fighting each other & Fury wasted 2 years through a doping ban. It’s not Usyk’s fault they couldn’t get their acts together.

And also beating Chisora is as good as anything Fury or Joshua had done before getting their world title shots.

Usyk may step aside after all.

“It might be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We should all talk and communicate for that to happen because it is a really big event" - Oleksandr Usyk

If Usyk is sensible he will take a 7 figure step aside money. He can take another fight mid next year and then fight the winner of the Fury V Joshua Brace in Spring Summer 22. It makes sense for him if he believes he wins as he gets to fight the undisputed HW king (probably get a 8 figure pay day) and if he wins he is the King. Force the WBO to strip the belt and Fans will hate him for ruining the mega fight.

The problem is after Fury vs AJ I & II happen there will be mandatories probably WBC first then WBA/IBF, Usyk will be waiting until 2023 most likely
