You need 16 weeks to comply with doping regulations.

To the guy that said Whyte was offered 30 mill, where'd you pull that from? Whyte was offered a 15% cut as he has said.


Think the doping thing is a red herring mate, they're both signed up to year round testing anyway. Not that Dillian Whyte is one to talk in that area!

Urgh. Any combination of Fury, Wilder and Joshua is now much harder to make.

It smacks of a guy that has been told an AJ fight just isn't on the cards (regardless of how any potential rematch with Wilder goes) so has his sights set on where he was post suspension/comeback. Fighting bums ether side of the Atlantic to earn enough money and possibly get a chance at any vacated belts AJ drops due to scheduling/Boxing board decisions)

It's not a bad thing. It's just his level

AJ is in the position that unless the other guy has the other belt he has to fight mandatories. He can't take a voluntary on like he'd have to with Fury otherwise he'd drop belts so it makes sense that Fury has to work his way up again

He can sell them though, that's what matters.

Floyd didn't exactly have a crowd pleasing style but he was box office.

Eddie Hearn owns AJ's soul for life I think. I'm not actually sure if Wilder is exclusive to Showtime though.

Yeah, Joshua is on DAZN and Sky, and I think he'll stay with Matchroom for the forseeable so will be with the same networks as long as Hearn is.

I'm not actually sure about Wilder, his last fight was on Showtime but I'm not sure if they have a deal or if it was a fight by fight thing.

It is believed that Wilder stands to earn $14 million (£10.94m) for the December 1 showdown while Fury is expected to pocket $10m (£7.82m).

The above is what they earned in the first fight. No way their earnings double in a second fight.

Looks like Fury's earnings more than doubled

Without being precious about AJ, who the fuck does this fat pudding think he is? His nipples are in his armpits.

Beat a 76 year old Adamek, who is a cruiserweight at his best, and thinks he's got the nuts to beat the champion.

Whyte would twat this idiot. His best option after the AJ KO would be a brawl with Chisora. Would at least be an entertaining fight between two packets of Lurpak.

:o That guy is high on crack or something.

As for Pork Pie Miller, the main reason he was chosen for AJ's big U.S. debut is due to his big mouth. Hearn knows he will sell the fight and get plenty of coverage with his nonsense. AJ's camp also knows that Miller will throw lots of punches and be ripe for a spectacular KO.

Don't see Jr stopping him, he doesn't hit hard enough especially at 168.

In reality JDG should give him a boxing lesson, but I don't know what he's got left. I'll probably put a few quid on JDG on points, but could be Jr late stoppage on a cut or injury or something like that.

I'd say Eubanks is more or less done as well, have we got another fork? No way is he testing the top dogs in this division.

Seen that Joe Joyce is fighting tonight as well, against Bermaine Stiverne. Even though he's been inactive, it's still quite a big step up for only his 8th fight.

Stiverne has come in at a career high 270. If he sees the 4th round I'd consider that a moral victory. Joyce ends it when he wants to

Hopefuully soon he can fight for title.Nothing wrong in collecting the Britsh title. He beats everybody at that level without too much bother

They need to get a move on with Joyce, what is he 33/34? But he should get rid of Stiverne without too much trouble. Hope DeGale can turn back the clock, Eubank is way over hyped.
