    I feel this would be leaning more towards Miller vs Joe Joyce. Joyce has been calling him out and is with Warren who has a decent relationship with Top Rank.

    Fury said the other day that in 2020 he plans to fight Wilder twice then the winner of AJ/Ruiz.

    I assume if wilder looses there will be a re-match clause.

    The penny should have dropped by now, PEDs are an integral part of the sport, all sports.

    Been saying it for years, but denial is a big river.

    To answer your question though, I think Fury just hasn't got the long term dedication for boxing or anything. He needs that goal setting to be motivated and not depressed.

    He's now fit so the for the Wilder rematch he'll be at 100%. Do it again to prove he's better plus mega bucks. Then against AJ to prove he's the best and more mega bucks.

    After that what is there? The likes of Whyte and Povetkin are a step back and none of the new crop will be big names enough but the end of 2020.

    So he'll prove it, then hopefully have something to dedicate his life to after or he'll just become a big fat alchy cokehead again.

    I don't doubt it, but when someone gets caught red handed, are we going to stop acting like it matters in the slightest? Yes, it seems.

    The PED thing will always follow him around now. It’s a shame because he is a big character and a very decent boxer. Hopefully he can have a go at the title some day.

    This was a bit shocking to me - it’s less than 5 months since he got busted, and yet here he is signing a Top Rank contract.

    Didn’t he get a 6 month ban?! Lolz. Probably runs from when he bought the PEDs.

    I see that fight happening too. Joyce would walk through Big Baby. Miller has no power and Joyce surpasses Miller in work rate which is Miller's biggest strength but Joyce actually has some pop to his punches. It's a good match up.

    I figured Miller just wanted to keep beating no hopers when I read he signed with TR. I guess it makes sense to feed him to Fury though, since Fury keeps doing the same as well.

    Yeah, they both have a similar strategy, but Joyce has more firepower. Also, if the ban has done anything, Miller should be off his drugs cocktails and have less stamina.

    I hope it happens. Miller is maybe the only boxer I don't like, while I like Joyce. Style and personality wise.
