Nothing to add to current discussion, other than for some reason, last night, I felt compelled to make something, and, well...

Scott Harrison. The unsettling real-life example of what happens if you merge a traditional Glasgow hard man with the ability to actually fight properly. Frightening. 

I think Chisora is at his best with come forward fighters, like the first Fury fight, Takam and the two Whyte fights. He will struggle with Usyks head and feet movement. Plus Chisora raises his game w

Interestingly Frank Warren/Queensberry have had a bit of an overhaul in the backroom. So my old boxing manager Jason Mcclory will no longer be doing the matchmaking. The did a WWE and wished him well in future endeavours. Though it could just be Jasons health that's prompted the decision. 

He will be replaced by a 4 man team of Steve Furness, Errol Johnson and Neil Bowers along with Rick Glaser overseeing international affairs. Neil was the matchroom matchmaker for years, Errol and steve have done shows up and down the country for other promoters so should work out well.

considering the show was put off a couple of times due to not being able to get a crowd in im genuinely shocked this isnt going to PPV. It was going to be a PPV with a crowd so im quite not sure how they've wangled this.

Was a trilogy fight with Wilder ever a thing? Depending on how you look at it, there's still no reason to have one. In statistical terms, they're 1-0-1 in Fury's favour. And if you take the harder view of how the fights actually went, surely it'd be considered 2-0 to Fury?

The only reason it was happening was because it was written into the contract before the second fight, I think. I’m sure Team Wilder had a rematch clause.

Nobody needs to see it. Fury spanked him for all but about 30 seconds they were in the ring together. And that’s both fights combined

AJ is surely the only fight Fury is arsed about now.

It was on as long as Wilder wanted it because a rematch was written into the contract. If Wilder had won Fury would also have been entitled to a 3rd fight. Im not sure if there's a deadline written though of when it must happen by. Wilder has been weirdly quiet all year.
