Fury led Wlad a merry dance. Likewise Wilder in their rematch. Neither could find Fury to land on him. Too clever. Too evasive. Will Joshua be able to? One would have to suspect not.

I would favour Fury, but Joshua has a few things going for him that Wilder and Wlad did not.

Wlad and Wilder like to fight "big", and were not able to adapt to fighting a bigger man. They still tried to fight as they usually do.

For a tall athlete, AJ often fights small. Tucking up, getting inside, throwing combos.

He is/(was?), more aggressive than Wilder and old Wlad too. His footwork is more positive, and he can press the action.

He has also shown the ability to adapt that Wlad maybe hasn't in years, and Wilder hasn't ever.

I reckon Fury will use his height, reach, and boxing ability to bust Joshua up from a distance. Look to manhandle him and tire him out on the inside. Get a late stoppage on a gassed AJ.

It will be interesting to see that, if Joshua can get inside and throw some hard combos, can he hurt Fury. I think he can, I just don't think he will do it often enough to turn the fight.

I'm sure Hearn mocked the idea of his fighters signing to fight someone in the future whilst they have an upcoming fight. Can't remember who, but I'm sure he's been there.

He's happy to do it the other way around though.

Even if it's hypocritical surely you want the deal done as quickly as possible? Especially as Fury's stock (with everyone else) could be higher than it is right now?

"December limits us in the UK, it just really leaves us with the Principality Stadium [in Cardiff], so we're going to look at all options but first thing's first, let's get the deal papered and know exactly where we stand. " - Looks like EH is already softening the ground for the fight to go overseas, I hope the Sheikhs are getting the cheque books out. The last thing I want is a fight between two Brits to be on a time to suit a bunch of Gun toting redneck republicans!

Shockingly I actually agree with Bob Weavers post, and Ben Davidson said something similar though he buried it a bit so as not to piss off Fury.

At long Range it's Fury's fight, it'd be boring and dull but Fury is rangier

Up close and personal I belive Joshua has a clear edge, he has the ability to put together devestating bursts in close, and while Fury can definitely fight inside, he's not as powerful or explosive. He's not a Ruiz type with crazy fast hands and very good power, he's got ok accumulative power but I don't see him being able to blast Joshua early.

It's a tough fight for Joshua to be sure, 270lb of gypsy flab will be weighing all over him so he would have to get it done quickly, but he has a live chance. I see it around 60/40 in favour of Fury.

The anti Joshua mob who say he's got no chin, no heart, he's just total rubbish, you need to pull your head out of Fury's ass, open your eyes and actually analyse the styles.

From listening to Frank's Boxing Social interview today, it sounds like this actually might happen. The idea of Frank handling the negotiations with the Saudi's terrifies me though. Can't see Warren coming out of the Saudi judicial system well if anything goes awry....

I can't see it happening pre vaccine which means summer 21 at the earliest. They aint giving up ~£2-5m of gate receipts.

Hearn talks nonsense, he knows for a fact this fight isn't happening next or until late 2021 for that matter.

Why would wilder step aside? Pulev is cashing out and we also have Usyk.

If this fight happenes earlier than October 2021 if at all I would be shocked.
