Well these won't happen until the Vaccine as they won't give up the £10m+ from the gate. So that makes it Summer 2021 at the earliest. I think if they make it through until then in good shape then both fights will happen as each fighter could make £100m each from this deal and money talks.

These two fight deals are nonsense, if one gets flattened in a round or two there shouldn't be a re match, I have no interest in Fury vs Wilder 3 for the same reason.
Agree with you. Although - and I slightly hate myself for feeling this way - there's always that 'will Wilder land a haymaker shot?' element that keeps me curious about seeing Wilder rematching Fury. The sport has gone money crazy, though, it has been coming for a few years. I have never heard a fighter talk about purse splits and percentages as much as AJ has, and from really quite early on in his career. Hearn seems to have that effect on the sport, boils everything down to money. He'd have AJ fighting in North Korea if they offered him the most cash. So I fear we have to get used to two fight contracts, with the second fight not dependent on the outcome of the first.

I’m amazed there’s any interest at all for Fury v Wilder 3.

I imagine a lot of Americans will have bought the whole 'my suit was too heavy, it made my legs tired' excuse, particularly when they saw him drop Fury in the first fight. So at least the third fight will leave no room for any debate, we're surely going to get an emphatic outcome, agreed by the vast majority. (And ftr I'm not buying the heavy suit story, but I know a fair few American fans (I work with a lot of Americans) who seem genuinely to have bought into it, and still think that the third fight will just be like the first one, only with Wilder starting earlier and thereby stopping Fury. It's amazing how people see what they want to see, some are almost disregarding the second fight. It's really bizarre.)

Yeah, I can see many buying the heavy suit excuse. I forget how stupid how people can be.....I mean, remember how many people actually thought McGregor was going to beat Mayweather and not only bought the PPV but lost good money at the bookies too.


Where there’s stupid, there’s brass.

I had £50 on Mayweather to win by ko between 10 - 12.

That was a big bet for me as I don't really gamble. It was free money.

I would have put on more, but I was worried he might fold early, even if Floyd carried him.

Yes agreed. Made all the more ridiculous when there are videos of Wilder making a thing of training carrying 40lb of weight, yet they still give him a pass on the excuse.

Entirely agree on the PPV - McGregor had a lot of fans making him favourite because he had meaner ink and a bigger, more aggressive mouth. It was really odd.

I've got a mate who didnt speak to me for about 10 years cus he tried to talk boxing to me one night and I told him his opinion is worthless because he picked Manfredo to beat Calzaghe. I was a bit rude tbf.

Anyway, all these years later we made up and within a fortnight he told me McGregor was gonna beat Floyd :lol:

Atleast is not picking a 56 Year old Mike Tyson to become undisputed champion again. So probably still hope for him yet.

I was shocked at the number of casuals doing exactly that on Social Media..When Mike talked about an exhibition fight.

It's the confidence people have that staggers me.

I'm a casual fan of a lot of sports. For example, I watch the rugby six nations, and the world cup, and that's it.

I can hold a conversation on it. Talk about the form of the current teams etc.

I know nothing about the history of the sport, the club game, the tactics or the technique.

So, if the conversation veers onto stuff I don't know about, I leave it to the people who do.

I don't say Jonah Lomu is the greatest player ever because I've seen a YouTube clip of him smashing through some English players.

Yet folk watch the contender, or see a Tyson compilation, and are happy to tell you about boxing based on it. Even if you tell them you are a huge fan and you used to box.

Staggering.

Lol..I remember people actually talking about Jonah Lomu switching to Boxing in the mid-90's and conquering the Heavyweight division.
They was like..."Trust me mate if Lomu is serious about switching to boxing he will absolutely Smash the likes of Tyson, Holyfield, Lewis absolutely smash them...I know my Boxing and my mate Dave from the Pub is a Black Belt in Karate he knows everything about combat sports and he agrees with me. " Lol.

I note EH pretty much conceded this will be £29.99 in his latest IFL interview...
Hearn should get on getting planning permission for his back garden fights instead of pontificating about a fight that's nowhere near ready. £29.99 seems logical considering the way they are bleeding the PPV mugs.
