Kell Brook back, swear he said he was only interested in the big fights  ;D

It's alright if it's just a warm up fight after a while off and he starts looking for the big fights.

But I doubt he will. I think he's done at the top level to be honest. GGG and then Spence took his soul.

Should push for the Kahn payday (which I'm not sure anyone really cares about anymore) then call it a day.

Eddie Hearn saying today that basically IBF and WBO have both told him that their mandatory defense has to be next and unless he fights Pulev and Usyk within weeks of each other he will have to drop one belt. Which pretty much guarantees it will be the WBO version. Usyk fights someone like Chisora for the belt probably.

These sanctioning bodies are a joke. He has just won the belts. How is he possibly meant to do that?

Even worse that Hearn had pretty much promised both mandatory fights would be done in the first half of the year.

Won't be any surprise to Eddie Hearn that, he was saying last year that they needed to make the Wilder match this year because with all the mandatory commitments associated with the belts it would be difficult to hold onto them all. Joshua has fought twice in 15 months and I only see him fighting twice in 2020. Can see the Usyk fight in the 2nd half of next year probably after Usyk has won the WBO belt against someone else.

Usyk and Parker are 1 and 2 with the WBO so that’s a potential fight for the vacant title. Would also mean Eddie keeps the belts under Matchroom if Joshua takes the IBF mandatory and fights Pulev next.

Usyk v Chisora is in talks already. Sells more tickets than Usyk v Parker.

Wilder is far too reliant on his right, biggest one-trick pony in boxing. Fury takes it on points but gets baptized atleast once like he was last time.

Fury the one that backed out of immediate rematch. He might be more match fit but he is also older and he didn't look that elusive facing the last Latvian he fought. Wilder is what he is, crude and sloppy but we know he has nuclear power in that right and he will catch Fury. I suspect him to be a good stone, stone and a half heavier (wtf he playing at coming in 212lbs the last time) and to use the extra weight to his advantage

I think Wilder loses every round but you're right that he's got that cheat code and he'll get to use it at least once. But Fury has taken it and got back up again, twice. When he was out of shape and out of practice.

If you can survive that nuclear right hand when it lands then I don't think Wilder has got anything else up hus sleeve.

He has nothing outside of that right. It's crazy, He should develop more weapons but I guess at this stage he is what he is.

The man himself is an utter weapon!

Meanwhile, I still believe Fury is mythologised by many. He is a very good boxer for a HW but his CV as it were is very bare barring Wlad and a draw with Captain Windmill. I suppose beating Bell Boy twice counts a little.

I know. I mean he himself is older than when they first fought, i know that is being Captain Obvious but Fury's style with the excessive use of feet is not one that ages well. Yo could rightly argue its only 15 months but considering the abuse he has put his body through with the PEDs and the excessive weight loss, those 15 months will be more significant to  him then they would be for Wilder IMO.

Sacking his trainer also not too much of a good look either

I think hiring that guy in the first place was a crazy move. He just wanted a yes man who would let hin do what he wanted. Sacking him for someone who can plot their way through 12 rounds for him makes sense.

I'd rather he was back with his uncle though.
