    The fight will be on Saturday 1 December, although as it will be held in Los Angeles, California, it will be shown live in the early hours of Sunday 2 December in the UK.
    So yeah i think that will be the same as the adelaide card tine wise (?)

    Got my tickets to Wilder-Fury. Keen as.

    Disappointed that I'll be missing out on Horn-Mundine though. Would've enjoyed seeing Mundine getting hopefully knocked out.

    legit trash talk hey? Looked as though Fury was dead set on scrapping there and then. First a body spar then real. Bit of a dickhead actually tbh. Why would you scrap on there anyway and risk having the fight canned and missing out on an opportunity and pay day. It's different these days, not sure they would scrap the fight { if they scrapped } but times have changed. Years ago Barrera and Morales got into an exchange in one of their promos but they still fought, as did Lewis vs Tyson.









    Years later hehe



    I thought there was another one with Barrera and Morales, perhaps at a weigh in.

    I'm pretty sure that it's the other way round.

    Read an article couple days ago that they put forward another contract to deontay and he knocked it back, again.
    My guess is venue and joshua wants O2 arena
    ?

    Not my words, but someone summed up who's fault it was in the whole saga here...

    So yeah, Wilder will be by far the most dangerous boxer AJ has ever met, and Eddie just doesn't want to risk the cash cow yet.

    If you like seeing a man get beaten up in slowly and painfully, then this is the fight for you. Bellew is gonna get crushed here. And this won't be a one punch knockout, it'll either be a stoppage, or Bellew will cop an absolute beating, and get destroyed on the cards, kinda like Vitali vs Briggs.

    That being said, I'm sure as hell gonna watch it. Fox Sports rarely has any boxing, try to watch every event to make the most of it.

    Yeah a lot is being made of Usyk not having the 1 punch KO power but his skills and movement for a big guy are sublime, so agreed, Bellew is gonna get beaten like a stray dog.

    Usyk gets it done after a slow start. Didnt think I'd be thinking kinda sad for Bellew, but it's a sad way to end that career.

    Any more talk on trying to get Lomachenko to fight in Sydney?
    There's a telegraph article from Oct but it's behind a paywall.

    God if they got him to Melb I'd drive over for sure

    Link to the article with no paywall: https://outline.com/2R4Pce

    It'll never happen though. Too much money in the US, unless the NSW government chips in a big percentage.
