    This weekend is fury vs Wilder, right??are they taking a back seat to the ufc card or is the ufc card not on prime time in the US?? Fury vs Wilder is probably gonna be boring as fuk. I can see fury just jabbing from way out trying to not get ko’ed. I get it for free but probably gonna skip it in favor of Hooker vs Felder.

    UFC starts a couple hours earlier than usual
    It'll be long over before Fury and Wilder are in the ring

    Well, since I am an MMA fan, I'll be watching the MMA thanks. Boxing is generally pretty boring to me, although every once in a while there is a good fight.

    I hope Fury wins, to rectify the robbery in the last fight, but I'm not going to actually, you know, watch it.

    Unless Wider knocks Fury out early that fight is going to be boring.
    Fury is never in exciting fights it's just not how he boxes and Wilder just has spectacular knock outs, he's not particularly exciting either as he's a terrible boxer.

    The UFC card will be better but the boxing is higher quality. If they're really talking 2 mill PPV buys then there's no real point in the UFC trying to compete, it's only a Conor fight which could.
