Prepping for a big fight not surprising to be honest.

Yeah if the interviewer asked about Wilder, do the trash talk. This was just a random question "Would you like to fight Usyk?"  ;D

Few rumours coming up again that Lomachenko vs Teofimo Lopez (IBF Champ) could be in Saudi.  ;D  :butt

That's probably the best fight out there at Lightweight. Would be a cracker.

Saudis need to fuck off, all the big fights are going to be held there at this rate.

Fury is a tool, those two fights against the German plumber and the Swedish meatball salesman were HUGE fights weren’t they? The guy is known to be a hypocrite. Hope Wilder takes his head off.

Eddie Hearn saying they've received an offer for the winner of Wilder v Fury 2 to face AJ in Saudi Arabia. He was talking to Sky Sports today.  :butt

"The fight Anthony Joshua wants is the winner of Wilder and Fury. Both guys have turned down 60/40 and now we have no other option but to offer them 50/50... We have a huge [Saudi Arabia] site offer in place for that fight to take place."

Fucks sake.  Wouldn't mind too much if it was Wilder, but if it was Fury vs Joshua and that wasn't in the UK it would be a real shame.

Just like I said. All the big fights are going to be in Saudi soon.

I see Andy Ruiz has split from trainer Manny Robles, who pretty much confirmed that Andy was eating whatever he wanted and never focused in camp.

All these fights going to Saudi is obviously unpleasant, but I can never really begrudge fighters making as much money as they can.  It's a tough old game and for all of them their next fight could be their last.

Promoters, on the other hand...

And don't even start on the fuckers continuing to employ known drug cheats. Bob Arum with Miller, Hearn with Povetkin etc. The sport is a disgrace.

I'm not entirely sure about that. Joyce can 'ugly' up this fight, get inside and rough Dubois up. You have to remember that Dubois is inexperienced and hasn't fought much in the way of competition. My first thought is that he will win a harder than expected points decision.

About time Dubois stepped up from fighting Electricians and Bouncers.

Should be a good fight, I'll definitely tune in for that.

Ruiz is overweight and has no trainer, he’s not fighting anytime soon. Hearn said it’ll most likely be Whyte v Povetkin, Chisora v Usyk and AJ v Pulev in the next few months.
