the quoted price he's asking for to step aside is $20 million 

Ridiculous sum of money to just sit it out. This whole thing is turning into a farce.

Fury wins via late stoppage. I base this prediction on the following: AJ is essentially a lesser version of a prime Wladimir Klitschko. Both are reliant on establishing their jab to set up their po

Nothing new, though. The Rumble In The Jungle took place in Zaire under the supremely corrupt and brutal regime of Mobutu Sisi Seko. And that cunt King arranged it.

I have to admit, it's a bit of a shame that possibly the biggest heavyweight title fight in many a year is basically being bought and paid for by such a reprehensible regime. Being able to look b

It's just insane that Wilder, Fury, and Joshua are the three biggest marquee names in the world for heavyweight boxing right now, and yet the only match to have happened between any of them is Fury/Wilder twice. Other people will know better than I do, but has it ever been this bad for getting matches put together, where there have been more shenanigans than actual fight promotion?

Its common in boxing that top names never fight each other. Mayweather/Pacquiao took like 6 years to get made. Its just the worst part of the sport, as a fan though you just learn to accept, which is wrong.

Fury/Joshua is unique in that's an undisputed fight in the sports marquee division, hence the ridiculous amounts of money being thrown around. The fact that this looks like it isnt happening because a contractual agreement didnt get sorted by Bob Arum's side of things is just mental. How can you allow a fight this big to get 12 weeks out and then have it railroaded by an issue that everyone who follows boxing already knew about and assumed had been sorted, its crazy.

$20 million is nothing based on the sum reportedly being thrown at this bout by the Saudis. Both Joshua and Fury would still be walking away multimillionaires themselves.

Are they really going to let this bout go based on the fact they’ll “only” be getting (say for argument’s sake) £50 million a piece instead of £40 million? Boo-hoo.

It’s not a case of them walking away from it. Wilder has a legal case to fight Fury next. Fury could be stripped of the titles if he doesn’t fight the mandatory challenger. That’s why Wilder wants 20mil to stand aside. The fight loses lustre if all the titles aren’t up for grabs.

I can't see a world where Joshua signs a piece of paper which says he is on the hook for $10mil to bail someone else out of a pickle and then potentially has to fight Wilder later in the year - the one fight his team have never, ever wanted.

Yeah. I understand that. But if Wilder is happy to accept $20 million to wait a little longer, and potentially get a crack at all the belts after Joshua–Fury, then it just seems a drop in the ocean.

I'm not so sure they think that after seeing how he crumbled against Fury. I'm fairly certain that Joshua's team must fancy that fight after seeing that.

The thing with Pac v Mayweather, ideally it should have took place in 2010, and i remember Pac getting a bit of a slating for turning down a guaranteed $30-40 million. There was all sorts of shit being said about who dodged who etc, but they let it build longer and it ended up being the highest grossing fight in history. Over 4 million PPV’s and Mayweather reportedly earning between 150-200 million and Pac over 100 million.

I believe Joshua did want the Wilder fight. Wilder even said he turned it down to fight Fury. But you never know in boxing, everyone is full of shit.

I’m with you. I guess they think they shouldn’t be footing the stand aside money, the promoters should, and they’re right. As is Wilder to be honest, if he is entitled to first dibs, milk the fuckers for it.

Yep. If there's one industry I don't begrudge people milking for all the money it can give them, it's a sport where people get punched in the head for a window of about ten, fifteen years, especially when the lion's share is taken by a bunch of sleazy cunts.

Wilder would be an idiot not to try to squeeze as much as he can out of this. If he’s indeed asked for $20 million and they decide to pay him to step aside, he’s laughing. If they don’t pay him to step aside then he still gets his crack at Fury anyway.

...and if we do end up with Wilder/Fury III and Joshua/Usyk, one of them is bound to lose. Its all to cock.
