Never been keen on Hearn or Warren, but whilst Joshua has had a couple of easier fights since becoming champion, and possibly excepting Molina, he's never really been fed a journeyman.

You can see exactly what these various promoters are up to. Joshua was, by a mile, the highest profile heavyweight on the planet before this fight, and in truth probably still is.
Both Fury and Wilder's promoters have gambled on increasing their fighters profiles with this fight. Without each other Joshua was really the only game in town for both.
The draw meant neither lost out, which is more than a little suspect in my book.
A rematch garners even more exposure for both, and puts the winner is a much better position to negotiate with Matchroom. Which might be no bad thing.

The only fight I see for Joshua that might be on a par with Wilder/Fury 2 is a rematch with Wlad. That said none of his other potential opponents are anything less than top 10 heavyweights, be that Whyte, Chisora or Pulev.

Always liked fury and he brings so much to
The party. I have always stated he is a great fighter. Had a nice bet on him at 9 to 2 v kiltcho and will have my biggest ever bet if and when he fights AJ


AJ will get his head jabbed off and fury will knock him
Out in rounds 567. Too big too strong too fast for AJ

Great for boxing and great daddies boy Hearn is put on back burner for now.

Rematch in London anyone?
I'll be having some of that if Gene Wilder doesn't bottle it.

I doubt it Tone, I think Gene's to much of a shit trousers to fancy that. Everyone knows who won that fight, but the most staggering statistic was our own judge gave it as a draw!! The out and out cunt!

You're could be right mate but you'll be surprised at what the lure of the lucre can do.
If the money's right, he'll be there I think.
He's often moaned about lack of recognition and how his fight purses have not been befitting someone with his record.
Well.... he's 33 now and the lure of a huge payday I reckon he'll fight anywhere.
Unless he thinks he can get more fighting Joshua, but I seriously doubt it. This fight is the big money one that's captured the world's imagination.

Hope you’re well Kris.

Can’t wait to see it at some point, couldn’t find anywhere to watch it and the hotel bar shut at 2:30.

I did call the draw at 25-1 8-) :lol:
You backed the draw at 25-1? :lol:


I'm well thanks old chap. Might be having a night on the razzle in Sandhurst with a couple of mates before Christmas if you fancy it?
Sadly I didn’t put much on.

Glad to hear it K. Think I have to watch how many pissups I’m on as it’s already quite a few. Ask me at the time tho mate. Saturday was heavy, I got pictured having tequila slammers at 2am with an elf. Would like to have remembered that!

Great night out tho, and quite a few hammers stayed up the night.

The WBC have ordered a rematch between Wilder and Fury which is excellent news.
