    Did you know North Korea is full of stoners? Alcohol is very expensive, the public's vice of choice is good old bud.

    Is that true fr? I know Kim Jong Il bought more hennesy than any one order in the world or something, iirc. Not that the ppl got anything, obv. That would be cool if the ppl could get stoned every once in awhile tho.

    I didn’t know that. I hope they have access to Bob Marley, pink Floyd and redman. I’m guessing North Korean music isn’t great to smoke weed to

    wow, this venue will only have 6-7k capacity.


    Those ticket prices will be astronomical to match the profits of a Wembley Stadium fight.

    I wish Ruiz had said yes to Wales; the atmosphere would have been electric. Now we’ll have to watch him fight in front of 6000 bored and sleepy billionaires.

    Eddie Hearn just described Saudi Arabia as an “entertainment capital”

    This to me looks like Eddie Hearn cowed to Al Haymons pressure.

    Eddie Hearn's weakness is how eager he is to deliver for the fans and keep the ball rolling, Al Haymon is playing a wicked game here, he's desperate to keep the HW belts in the US hence why he's not letting Wilder fight Whyte and he's got the WBC backing him to make this awkward for Hearn and now even with all the small print against him, he's making Ruiz squirm and complain about jockying for the A-side decisions.

    Ruiz went from a nice humble guy to looking like a pr*ck as soon as Al Haymon's hand went up his jacksy like a puppet.

    Ruiz was totally willing to stall the fight just to angle it to get it in America so AL and his partners can get all their network money and insert corrupt judges.

    Hearn should of stuck to his guns and had it in the UK just to power move Al Haymon if anything, I think he just couldn't be bothered to get the lawyers involved which is what would of happened, but to me Hearn looks like a beaten man.

    He know's this sucks, he knows the fans hate it, but Hearn is just thinking if this is AJ's last horrah then they get £80m out of it.

    I actually think AJ is done, like all Social Media Warriors (Connor McGreggor included) they are get rich quick merchants, not true warriors, people who can get thrown in the fire, fight their way out and keep coming back for more, they're rich over night sensations who then fall in love with doing media interviews, talking to their followers on twitter and trying to do damage control via online rather than stfu and get in the ring.

    I thought AJ had enough grit but if you just look at his face during that last press run and up to fight night, the guy isn't focused and I've not liked what I've seen since.

    He's not beating Wilder or Fury........ prob won't even beat Ruiz.

    The whole thing is a trap.

    MBS will invite the other 5,999 Saudi princes to the stadium under the guise of a boxing match.

    When they arrive, the Mutawa arrests them all and tosses them into the Ritz Carlton where he imprisons them all.

    PBC seem to be playing games again and not giving a fuck about their fighters careers. That's Ortiz, Wilder, and Ruiz all in the same year that they're fucking over.

    Imo they’re banking on Joshua’s side folding over the possibility of lengthy legal disputes and the belts being fragmented.

    And even if all the belts do get fragmented, that means Wilder gets to pick up one or two in the process.

    It’s not a bad bluff tbf but fuck me if Hearn did this pitch forks would be sharpened in record numbers.

    I think he probably benefits from the belts being fragmented because he only needs one title to market himself as a champion, and that should be easy to attain if Ruiz loses a belt or two.

    I feel bad for Ruiz. He had a lot of momentum after the first fight but I think it’s going to be squandered if he makes negotiations too difficult and they drag on too long.
