    Boxing is dying and Conor is a bigger name than both wilder and fury combine

    Wow

    Wilder vs Fury? IN

    Sick names for 2 boxers huh? Wilder and Fury.

    With that said, the Conor fight is bigger

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Wilder-Fury, certainly.

    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.

    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.
