Arum deems Fury-Joshua fight 'dead in the water'
I understand everyone does not think Fury cheated in the fight with Wilder, and I could honestly give a damn what happened. Let’s say dude didn’t cheat at all. Why the fukk would I go through all these proceedings where I am already and losing millions of dollars in legal fees, fighting a case not to fight against a individual I had a contractual agreement with to fight once more. The same individual whom I beat to a pulp with little to no effort . But I don’t want to fight him so much that I am willing to be sued for tens of millions of dollars if I lose the case out of a refusal to fight him. Not to mention the amount of money I could make fighting him exceeds the amount of any fight with Anthony or any boxer in the world. In the entire world..So I rather lose tens of millions over making it again easily. Dude is a bytch. No way to defend this shyt. Don’t give a fukk if he never cheated in his life. shyt not adding up. Wouldn’t be surprised if he just retired after this court battle
Well for one, fighting Deontay doesn't make him undisputed.
Two, there's absolutely no way fighting Wilder makes Fury more money than Joshua.
Wilder is a bytch and doesnt want a third fight . . He only started yapping after Fury/AJ was announced but kept dead silent before that praying Fury didnt pursue the 3rd fight
Because there already was a fight scheduled the rematch didn’t happen because they just got together and wanted it to happen again to just break the tie. They are signed for a 3 fight deal. The violation to fulfil their contractual obligation is why they are currently in arbitration. The fight only got pushed back because of Bob Arums request to push the fight back due to lack of seats that would be filled at that time by COVID. They have been in court for forever. Your point makes no sense at all. I’m not even a big wilder fan, it’s just the actual facts. There was already a fight scheduled. You can google this right now.
Either way... why would you allow yourself to get sued for possibly millions (80mill) . not fighting someone who ass you just beat in which you would make more than any fight you have ever made in your life. It don’t matter when amd where. That fight would be happening. I’m not going to court and risk being sued instead of simply fighting the guy. He literally cannot fight a single fight until the case is over. This is arbitration. Look it up bruh. I’m not even a wilder fan. This is the only reason this fight has not happened yet... this other shyt him and Joshua doing is just planning just in case arbitration and legal issues come to a cease between him and Wilder and he can finally fight again. He can’t even fight in the UK because he banned because of steroids. Cmon man stop
Team Fury had an opposing view to the contract and deemed it expired last year (goodwill to allow a 3rd fight within 6 months of the 2nd fight?). The third fight was only required contractually technically to "break the tie" - there was no tie though
You think Wilder truly wants another embarrassing beatdown at the hands of this Neanderthal cac? Wilder/Haymon are going to collect a nice chunk of step aside money. Wilder will be fighting some tomato can this summer while Fury will be fighting AJ. I for one, would actually like to see Fury/Wilder 3 - so hopefully the "arbitration" does turn to negotiations, though this time he wont have in his corner so god only knows how messy it could get . . .
Hearn: Joshua-Fury set for August in Saudi
I mean I get that MBS threw him the bag as part of his Sportswashing campaign but IMO this shoulda been in Millienium or Wembley
Rematch will probably be. This was the retirement bag lol
Its clear both parties want this fight. All the delays and multiple announcements about sites and all that shyt is just the promoters squeezing the absolute most out of who ever is going eventually host this
People want this fight to fall thru so bad, for whatever reason, but I think they just doing the most to get the most money
I don't really know what the COVID rules here will be by the time of the fight, but might not have been able to get a full stadium in the UK.
Regardless of that literally everything about this fight aside from the actual boxing that will take place, stinks.
if the UK allowed for a full stadium the fight wouldn't take place in Saudi
Nah i think it still would have. The precedent has been set.
The amount of time its taking to make this fight, they could've held it in London.
Theyre more than likely making twice the revenue in Saudi. Couldn't get anything close to a $150MM guaranteed site fee in the UK
