yourself?
He is a lot better than Seferi and Pianeta, and nowhere near as good as Wilder.

As far as being acceptable, it really depends on what you think is going on here.

I said about 3 weeks ago that there is no way Top Rank/ESPN are going to take a big risk with Fury in fight 1 of their 5 fight deal. As soon as Fury signed the deal I put a line through the names Wilder, Joshua and others. Fight 1 will be an exercise in showcasing their new asset at minimum risk.

Looks like its Rivas might need to change the title, and this is where Arum fucks it up Fury will lose all his new fans when he 120-108's Rivas in a fight with loads of clinches, plus it looks like the Wilder rematch isnt happening is anyone going to care for Fury vs Whyte when AJ vs Wilder might be on the horizon?

Only problem is nobody knows Rivas.
I thought a Parker type would have been better as a 1st fight. Has a name and 100% doesn't beat Fury.
I'd have put Rivas on his undercard against a half decent name like Andy Ruiz Jr and had a little build to him being the 2nd opponent of his 5 fight deal myself...

A few names could be argued. It probably comes down to how whoever gets the other corner is promoted to punters in the lead up to the fight. Rivas hardly looks a bum record and rankings wise.

The most important thing is Fury coming through with the W and taking a step closer to the rematch.

Not terrible but not especially good. Pulev, Whyte, Parker all better but this is an expected 1st fight of a new contract.

Rivas dodged a bullet. Would've been a boring domination. @DB Cooper you're overrating Wilder by saying that Rivas is nowhere near as good. Wilder won 1 round (maybe 2, IIRC) against Fury on my card. I think Rivas can maybe win one round too.

I would like to see Fury vs Michael Hunter however, I think they probably feel that's too big a risk.
Oh no John no. Fury is FAR too big for Hunter. Rivas is not much bigger but I think a more credible opponent. If I was guessing though,I think it will be somebody not as good as either.
Ive been talking on the other forum about an American heavyweight called Stephan Shaw. Dunno whether you know him but he was on the bRoosadway show a few weeks ago. Big guy, good jab, decent punch, undefeated. But would probably get drubbed by Fury. An American so some over there will know him so if the fights in the US good stuff.
I don't think its necassary to have a big name opponent so long as the guy is not coming off a loss and has a decent enough record. Not for the first fight. But an undefeated fighter would be ideal even if in Shaws case he hasn't beat anybody much. His last win Wass I think Donovan Dennis who isn't bad.
