“Joshua has to fight Pulev and we have a big problem with the site. For Pulev and Joshua, the British Board are not being very co-operative.

“Pulev is now going to go to purse bid because he doesn’t want to fight in the United Kingdom.”

Asked to elaborate on why – Arum simply stated: “We are just not going to do the fight in the UK because we don’t get a level playing field.”

This is a huge blow to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, who faces going up against a formidable force in Arum and his team to snag the rights to host. If Arum can out-bid Hearn, Joshua will be forced to once again fight on America soil.

It doesn't really matter where this one is, Hearn should just let Bob waste his money, Joshua knocks pulev out in Pulevs own living room.

Ridiculous that the Champ doesn't get to chose where the fight is. Pulev should count himself lucky he gets the payday! If it doesn't end up in London hope it goes to Saudi as atleast I can watch the fight live rather than than bullshit USA 4am nonsense.

If it goes to purse bids Eddie should bid 1 cent, and let Arum pay AJ to KO pulev

This wont go to bids...Hearn is gonna make a better offer. Either a bigger paycheck to fight in U.K.

Or even a bigger one at a neutral venue of Saudi Arabia or America.

Arum is playing chess while others are playing checkers.

Uncle Bob is like the old Jewish Gangster from the Godfather.

And Eddie Hearn is not smart enough to be Michael Corleone.

You gotta hand it to Uncle Bob...When he is around Eddie Hearn he says something like ..."You know myself and Barry Hearn go back years he is a great friend of mine. I think Eddie is a wonderful youngman he is doing his father proud and he has great future in this business.."

When Uncle Bob is around Tyson Fury and Frank Warren... "Eddie Hearn is a young punk a total schmuck he has no idea how to do business with others he is too cocky for his own good, steps on too many toes, ..."

Had a dream last night that AJ beat Pulev by DQ because Pulev gave AJ equilibrium and concussion problems that was caused by a punch but the ref stopped it and then Ar558a jizzed in his pants over the decision to DQ Pulev.

I am getting the distinct impression there are no-head-shots-in-boxing reformists charading here.

Ruiz stops AJ.
Reaction : Oh, but, but AJ had concussion.

Fury stops Wilder.
Reaction : Oh, but, but Wilder had equilibrium issues.

Enough with the chickenshit excuses Nancys it is a man's sport and the aim is to stop your opponent by punching them.

I thought it was already generally acknowledged at the time that TopRank only signed Pulev because he was the mandatory and they could force the purse bid thus collecting their inflated 20%.

Bob lies like other people breathe. If he told me the sky was blue I would stick me head out the window and check.

Pulev and Arum want as much money as they can get, just like everyone else in boxing.

Will be a shame for UK fans if it lands elsewhere, but personally I'm not that fussed. Never really been that interested in this fight. Think Joshua wrecks him tbh.

Pulev has a punchers chance though, but it's not enough for me to want to go or purchase the ppv.
