These are the only correct answers. I pick Wilder vs Fury.
Boxing is dying and Conor is a bigger name than both wilder and fury combine
Wilder vs Fury? IN
Sick names for 2 boxers huh? Wilder and Fury.
With that said, the Conor fight is bigger
Wilder vs Fury
Kebab and McGregor.
Joshua Vs Wilder would be bigger however.
Conor is bigger than these two boxers anywhere in the world.
Khabib is yuge in Russia and in Muslim communities around the world.
Muslim 1.8 billion
Conor vs. Khabib stomps.
Just to give everyone an idea where the popularity levels of these guys are:
Without Conor: https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=/m/0h7lbkd,/m/02rny4c,/m/03gvljl
WITH Conor: https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=/m/0h7lbkd,/m/02rny4c,/m/03gvljl,/m/0rfgxy2
Conor is so huge everyone else on that list is negligible compared to him, and Wilder and Fury are similar in level to Khabib globally.
There's already ridiculous shit going on in the Fury vs Wilder build-up. The fight just got signed yesterday and people are throwing chickens at each other.
Joshua Vs Wilder
Ask your white collar coworkers what Boxing is. They will give you a correct answer.
Ask them what UFC is. Half think it’s pro wrestling.
Last year boxing had 3 ppvs that sold more then any mma fight ever did
I started out in boxing, so I will always enjoy the big fights.
That said, I am a much bigger MMA fan now, so McG vs Khabib is my hype fight.
GGG-Canelo 2 if all goes well.
Conor is--we assume--a PPV draw but he's a dud in terms of legacy building. If he wins, what, a third title strip? Best case scenario, he gets smashed and neckbeards free themselves of the hype.
GGG Canelo is bigger than Wilder vs Fury, but Conor is the biggest star in combat sports now that Mayweather is retired.
Canelo vs GGG II ??
Not many people care for it. Way more hype for the first fight.
ESPN Latam is all over that one since weeks ago, but it could be that because Canelo is Mexican, they sold 1.3M and im guessing they might break the million PPV mark again, but again, i might be biased here, having said that, Conor vs Khabib will most likely outsell Boxing, wether is Canelo or Wilder.
I am in awe that we're getting Wilder v Fury this year but
Shelly & Frank would dance naked in the streets for 500k PPVs in America
Canelo v GGG 2 is big but it won't touch the biggest fight in combat sports
Conor's comeback is far & away the biggest fight in combat sports. By every metric.
Conor McGregor is the sun in combat sports. He's bigger than AJ v Wilder too
Conor is the biggest star of the bunch. That is pretty obvious.
Conor is for dumbass casuals. I don't give a fuck about casuals.
Real sports fans are looking forward to GGG-Canelo II and (half seriously) Wilder-Fury.
