The most honest man in boxing.

Honest? :lol:

He changes his stance on things whenever the wind changes. One day he's sending some supportive tweet to Joshua, the next he's calling him a disgrace. He's saying that the fight with Schwarz is two "behemoths of boxing". :lol: He's claimed to have donated all his Wilder purse to a homeless charity, but refuses to say which one, and nothing he says is exactly reliable.

I like Fury, I'd support him over Joshua if the two fought, but his big fans are as delusional as Joshua's, just for different reasons. When it comes down to it, he's as much about the money as the rest, which was proven by signing with ESPN and thus making it much harder to sort the Wilder rematch and to get the Joshua fight. You can't blame him for taking such a huge offer, but it should be seen for what it is...money first.

He’s going to be in the ring with Wilder again early next year, he just fought Wilder in his last fight and people still complain about him not taking bigger tests. People are never happy.

Nah, I said he made it harder for that rematch to come to fruition by signing with ESPN. Did that make it less likely or more likely than being a free agent? Clearly, unless you're being totally biased, it made it less likely, and that means money came first. That's perfectly fair enough, he's the one in there, but it means all this "he only cares about the fights, not money" is bollocks.

Schwarz is an absolute farce of a fight. But if it's Wilder next...cool, I will be happy and hopefully he does what he did last time but avoids the KD's. But I can support him without pretending he is totally honest, never comes out with any bollocks and never flip flops on things. If he used Whyte to amuse himself by messing Hearn about, he still lied for his own amusement, which still means he is not particularly honest.

I would say he acts more like the real person he is than media trained Joshua, but that doesn't mean we need to pretend he is some paragon of truth.

'Straya, cunt.
Not really, why should he fight an eliminator with Whyte when he has the Wilder rematch on the horizon. Pointless linking his name to Whyte tbh.
Yeah, would be taking a step backwards if he was to fight White before Wilder, so many fighters have come unstuck having a stop gap fight before the big one, Darrin Van Horn fighting Iran Barkley comes to mind.

Not saying the circumstances are identical or I think the outcome would be the same, just saying it’s stupid not to a) make the next fight the one that makes the most money and b) not to focus on that fight 100%
