Fury has already adamantly said no to Saudi .......... and in all fairness, how the fk does the biggest HW fight between two Brits not end up in Wembley is beyond me?

Surely it has to be Wembley?

Not sure if I'm staying up for it though.

I might just download it next day, by 3am I'll be half if not fully pissed and won't be able to absorb what I'm seeing so depends what time walk out is.

If its 2am I'll def watch it live, if its another 5am jobby forget it.

Its always best to go to bed early, record these fights, wake up fresh, don't look at your phone or any news stuff and watch the fight fully awake. Means you can FF through all the endless pre fight bollox too.

Saudis and Dazn will pay silly money though, its no different to ali foreman fighting in zaire of all places. I am suprised if fury said he wouldn't fight in saudi seeing as he just did the wrestling there hopefully he has because it would be sad if the biggest british fight of all time would be in saudi or us.

If that was the case though then why is AJ insisting on England against Pulev?

It is about money, but its not like they're not getting paid in England.

Sometimes its about having home advantage and less distractions, no point fighting for the top money only if it leads to you losing your titles because you feel like your on holiday.

AJ was hanging around on Miami beach and soaking up the rays, going on New York radio stations etc focusing on marketing and looked completely off against Ruiz.

Hopefully they do care about the fans abit, tbh i wouldn't blame any boxer for going where the money is, boxing is one of the hardest sports out there, all i think is they don't need to chat bullshit and to deny they want mney.

All of the judges for the Wilder / Fury rematch are American.

Well that's what Fury deserves for being a sell out.

While AJ was building a UK Empire and bringing boxing back to Britain, Fury is having his ass sold to the American Networks by that puke Frank Warren to the highest bidder.

Makes you wonder does Frank even care about his fighters? Hearn would be a lot more cautious, which is why Wilder and AJ fell apart, Wilder's camp wanted it all their own way and Hearn wasn't having it.

I recon Warren believes this retirement come back is just his opportunity to cash in while Fury still retains an interest.

Money and ambition go hand in hand in boxing.

I don't blame Warren or Fury for going for the dollars.

Absolutely but in the same token you can't get on there being only American judges when you've agreed to walk into the Lions den.

Yes everything should be fair, but in reality corruption in boxing is well documented, so its money vs your victory your playing with.

Up to them but lets not moan about judges in the same instance, they know what they signed up for.

You're forgetting Top Rank and Bob Arum are also behind Fury. I don't expect judges to be an issue in this one.
