    Yeah, he is definitely very dumb.

    I think nobody really wants to see another rematch. Probably why he is trying to throw any excuse he can at it. Of course nobody with sense will believe that, like most of the shit fighters talk.
    With the clause I guess it's pretty certain to happen if he makes it. Wonder if the Fury / AJ camps could buy him out of the clause...

    I heard talk that Fury could just drop the belt to make the fight with Joshua happen. I don't think that Fury holds much stock in belts, and in this shape could just fancy a go at Joshua before potentially retiring.

    Probably it is more likely that Fury will fight Wilder again, Joshua will fight Pulev, then they can fight after that. If either were to lose it would scupper a massive massive fight/payday though.

    I think Fury could drop the belt if it meant getting the right fight. But donít forget, the rematch clause is in the contract, it probably relates to money as opposed to the belt.

    He could lose part of the purse maybe? I donít know exactly how contract was worded, but just dropping belt would not get him out of whatever he signed.

    He could pay Wilder off to get out of rematch, but even if itís a fight no one wants to see itís still probably eight figures for Wilder. Doubt heíd want to pay that.

    Just take rematch when Joshua fights Pulev, Fury Joshua in December and fingers crossed they donít lose as you said.

    Also if Wilder doesnít fight him now, a Joshua Fury trilogy could be over two years.

    That means the minor leagues for Wilder until then. So if he fights Fury again he gets a guaranteed massive payday plus a puncherís chance at getting straight back to the top of the tree.

    Itís an absolute no-brainer unless he decides to retire now.

    Yeah I have no idea what the contract is. If Fury had to pay Wilders expected purse for cancelling on him then I assume he'd just take the fight. I doubt Fury fears Wilder. I think Wilder will want the fight too. Doubt Wilder would want potential fights against Whyte or Ruiz jr.

    So I asked a mate and he said the rematch is down as 60/40 in Furyís favour. So itís a mega pay day, that would be millions more for Fury - perhaps even more than a Joshua fight at 50/50 because Wilder will still bring some American market.

    Plus Joshua is busy. So just wait for Pulev fight to be done, then make the Joshua fight after - even if it then means rescinding some belts to avoid mandatories.

    I don't think Fury is motivated by money at all though. Or so he says.

    Still definitely the most likely sequence if Wilder wants the fight though.

    Fighting is always a risk with these guys. Although I think Fury is the better boxer, Wilder has got a massive punch and if he lands one it could be game over. No guarantees Fury will win the rematch if Wilder is motivated.

    Wilder? I'd say most people think that Fury has beaten him twice already. For Fury another fight against Wilder is completely pointless unless he is motivated by money/ or would have to pay Wilder off.

    Really want Fury to fight Joshua next. Would be the first fight Iíve ever seen where I honestly donít have a preference on who wins. Like them both.

    Well you're in luck, apparently it's going to happen this autumn, in mother fucking Saudi Arabia. :lol:

    Arum isnít holding out much hope for Wilder to beat Fury though, he has suggested that Fury will be fighting Pulev for a unification bout next year.

    And Arum said he could "guarantee Pulev will knock out Joshua like Fury knocked out Wilder".

    "I will look at a Pulev/Fury fight to unify the belts at the end of the year," he added.

    I've been critical of his killer instinct in the ring but I really like Parker. I'd like to see Chisora pick this up.

    So it looks like Joshua and Fury have struck a two fight deal, in principle at least. Which is good, these two need to match up to see how things really lie. It constantly amazes me though just how many shady cunts get involved in that sport. It will probably be held in Saudi Arabia which is one thing in itself, but then there's Kinahan's involvement in the deal-striking too. It's really not a good look.

    Irish Daily Star has said they won't cover the fight due to Kinahan being involved. That it would be disrespectful to the victims of the drug war in Ireland.

    My neighbours son, David, is boxing on BT sport tomorrow night! I used to babysit him and his brother, cheeky little buggers. I had no idea he was a profesional boxer!

    Here's his last fight.

    Yeah saw that. Should be an interesting one off spectacle.

    Tyson is looking good.

    Roy Jones had an interesting career. Went from being the best pound for pound boxer to a washed up has been in four fights.

    I really struggle to get excited about things like this. It's like watching the Rolling Stones in concert as 70 year olds; there's a novelty factor, but deep down it's kind of depressing and you wish you were watching them in their prime.
