They did! They could have picked anyone! Yeh they went to the US for the money but still could have chosen an easier fight (like that chump Schwartz).You are talking like Joshua and Hearn did Ruiz a favour.
They took the fight in the US because it paid the most money.
Ruiz wants the fight again in the US. He is the champ, he has the right to choose just as Joshua did in the first fight.
The fight should happen in the US, i'd like to see it happen in Texas at the Stadium...
That ship has sailed now anyway he aint making £500m let alone £1bn. £1bn was only a slight possibility if he stayed unbeaten, and then won Wilder I & II and Fury I & II probably a Whyte rematch as well. It would have been pretty difficult to do and would have need some pretty mega sponsor deals on top.And in Joshua’s situation, claiming you’re gonna be the first billionaire boxer doesn’t make it easier for him to take his ball and go home because he wasn’t as good as he thought he was.
He may take some fans to MSG but hardly compares to 80k @ Cardiff! I've had enough of the fucking American's acting like their the centre of the world. They couldn't fill a 80/90k stadium to save themselves plus they are too gutless to tell HBO/Showtime to go Fuck themselves when they as $100 a fight. I resent fights always being on at stupid times at 4am. More Uk/European fights makes sense for everyone, they become afternoon events in the US and Evening in UK/Europe. Night fight in the US lose at least 80% of the potential European audience.AJ is at such a disadvantage fighting in MSG with predominantly Brits in the crowd. It’s in the US not a fucking third world country ffs. World champion my arse, can’t perform out of fucking London it seems. His fans are a fucking odd bunch.
I dont think you understand what I am saying? I agree with you that a sportsman’s ego is driven about being the best, therefore it’s not money that motivates them.You fail to understand what drives highly successful people.
I think the O2 Arena usually has a set curfew in place -- something like 11 or 11:30pm -- so I can see Allen-Price being closer to 9-9:30pm.
Erm, it's next week mate
