      Oh wilder could beat AJ no doubt, but I think AJ has more of a chance v wilder than Fury.

      This could end his career as you say.

      Hopefully.

      Sometimes a sportsman comes along who has been built specially for their sport Fury is a beast in his height and reach and his weight which he carries around like a middleweight at times. He isn't burdened by over developed muscle he is just a fighter and I hope this is the last time we see Joshua in a ring or on our TV.

      I was disappointed in the GGG vs Canelo fight, GGG just didn't have enough in him to go at it for 12 rounds. He is my preferred fighter out of the two and definitely think he should have won the first and didn't lose the second so was really rooting for him this time around. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be as father time seems to have caught up with him, he came on strong during the second part of the fight but unfortunately, it was already too late.

      In terms of Joshua, Fury, Wilder and Usyk, I think whoever wins each fight will meet each other again. I reckon it will end up with an Usyk vs Fury fight for all the belts, but I wouldn't completely count out Wilder, Usyk has yet to feel real power and if Wilder can catch him, I am not sure anyone but Fury can get back up.

      When Joshua loses I think he would want to go out on a win and would take up a fight with Whyte as he could see himself being the winner there, but not even sure he could beat Whyte these days. I would want Whyte to win regardless, he has always said that Joshua was a fraud in his personality.

      So AJ bottled it again, that’s fights against Wilder and Fury he’s ducked.

      Great boxer but these antics from Fury are just a bit tiresome now.

      Is it antics though? Don’t know if there’s been any update today but AJ had 10 days up to when Fury said that was it and in that time there didn’t really seem to be any sign that AJ really wanted it. If I’m in AJ’s position, getting offered 60-40 with a 50-50 in a rematch if he wins, I’d be getting that signed straight away. It’s a chance to stay at that top level, a big chance to put the last few fights right and make a nice profit at the same time because if he ends up as a mandatory at whatever stage, he ends up with a minimal split.

      I get there’s things that need to be checked over but if you’re in a position like he is, you don’t hang around when presented with an opportunity like that.

      Get the sense he never really wanted he fight anyway because straight away they started trying move dates about etc.

      Fury had the Wilder deal signed within 24 hours and that fight re-ignited his career to where he is now. When AJ was apparently in talks to fight Wilder, Wilder and his camp came out and said AJ was ducking him and didn’t really want the fight because of the way the negotiations/contract stuff was going and IMO the same has happened again. You could argue that it was just Wilder saying it but the fact that now both him and Fury have gotten tired of how the negotiations are going, has a bit of substance to it to me.

      Edit: Seen this update from earlier

      So why exactly is it still not signed?

      One thing we have to say about Fury is spades a spade with him.  ;D He doesn’t hold back does he. Now I don’t pretend to understand the goings on behind the scenes to get this fight on but does look shady from AJs camp.

      The lads been given a life line when his career is good as finished. Fury right about him, he’s a fcuking big pussy.
