Aah yes the toe injury. Tbf if you had that much weight on a damaged toe Iíd expect it to hurt and limit you just a lot.

The toe injury was against klitsko , Hayes problems were shoulder and elbow

When the purse for that fight is so huge I doubt either want to avoid it forever or until it doesnít have the same pull or slip up elsewhere. Not sure who Iíd prefer to win. Probably wonít mind. AJ will have most of the black support or Ďpeople of colourí support (God I hate that term) but this is a personality individual sport so who knows on Fury. Some of his bizarre opinions have been forgotten and now his bravery or remarkable 8 second or years out comebacks are what stands out.

Most are hopefully just glad some decent matchups are happening rather than rip-off contests I wouldnít pay for or show my arse out of bed for across the water that early. I have my limits.


I think that AJ is as popular with whites as blacks, second generation, Like Ian Wright , speaks with a London accent.
Fury is an English /Irish gypsy.
Donít think that either is defined by their colour.
Iím white working class and my mates are the same and like one or the other, regardless of colour.
I actually like them both, positive Englishmen spreading positivity. Amen to that.

My point was more the black support will be with AJ. You can guarantee that. That was my point. The rest you quote I mainly agree with although AJís accent isnít really a traditional London accent.

Anyway, it wonít matter one iota unless one gets unnerved at a venue with one sided support but itíll probably be fought on another continent anyway.

It's all about opinions. If I had any real knowledge, I'd be a Promoter, or trainer.
For me, AJ has deliberately swerved Fury (if you believe the papers) for a couple of years. It's only now that Eddie Hearn wants the match.
For me, I have little interest in Joshua. If this message board gives a wider indication of public opinion, then there seems to be the demand for Joshua-Fury to happen.

Wilder was seemingly struggling after 30 seconds of the first round. Almost like he had an asthma attack, and was struggling for breath. And his footwork wasn't up to par.

Wilder will take a few weeks to see if he wants to take on Fury again. We'll have to see how quickly his injuries and ego heal.

Then if he swerves it, I guess AJ-Fury is the only show in town. Whilst they are both on their best form.

When it comes to fighters avoiding each other nobody really knows. Boxing promoters inhabit a murky world they will never be as stupid to decline a fight rather they will set demands that cannot be matched and then complain that the other side ran away.

I think the public will demand Fury Vs AJ due to demand it will have to be in a football stadium so if they don't get on on this summer it won't happen this year. Either that or they grab the Arab money and put it on in a soulless arena in the desert.

I think Badger has some good points. A bit like Palace, no-one knows what goes on behind the scenes. We just know that promoters are trying to maximise the return on their investment.
It would seem logical to have AJ-Fury in a UK football stadium 'for the fans', but I can see the fight (if it happens) going to Vegas or the Arabs.

Who have you got interest in seeing fury fight next ?

Iíd like to see Usyk fight whyte, then the winner fight Joshua/ fury after they fight.
In reality fury v wilder 3 will probably happen, as regardless of last
nights landslide, wilder will surely trigger the re match, simply for the money, or he will be fighting someone else on normal tele in a smaller venue for a fraction of the money.

Never heard him referred to as jc. Makes Jesus Christ sound like a top of the charts US rapper.

Sounds like fury v AJ might not be in England. Could be the Middle East or the states due to furyís ESPN contract. Typical.

IF this turns out to be the case I think it would be disgraceful... A real kick in the face for all those fans who have supported both fighters for years... The majority of them being working class people who canít afford a trip to Saudi...

Common sense would say itís gotta be in front of 80,000+ at Wembley

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

The Rumble in the Jungle kind of set the precedent for chasing wonga, when it should have perhaps been held in the USA.

The obstacles at the moment are that Wilder wants the re-match. But he can be paid a deferment fee to perhaps face the winner of AJ-Fury.
Unless there is another re-match clause to that fight, too.

At this sort of level, even holding the AJ-Fury fight at Wembley, ticket prices are likely to be outrageous.

The money men have a lot of work to do
