    Seen some people on Twitter claim Wallin's last fight was a fix. Anybody with knowledge of Wallin have any idea what they're talking about? I'm assuming it's just people on Twitter being idiots.

    Wallin's last scheduled fight was cancelled on the day of the fight due to his opponent not getting cleared by the ringside doctor. The fight before that was called a no contest due a clash of heads in the first round.

    I'd call bullshit on the claim that his last fight was a fix

    Yeah, I assumed as much. Just thought there might have been some larger context, but it's just Twitter trolls being idiots as usual lol

    I don't care what the belts are called.

    The issue is them making up new titles on the spot just so that they can involve themselves in high-profile fights.

    Big Fury fan but he is a hypocrite calling out Wilder for fighting bums, the last two guys he has fought are much worse than Wilders recent competition. I'm very suspect of his latest opposition too, some of the fights they were in looked like their opponents took dives. He doesn't have to fight Wilder straight away, but surely their are better contenders for him to fight than this.

    PPV for this shit. Who do they think they’re kidding?!

    At least you don’t live in Norway - they’ll be asking 50 quid for it here! Nope.

    Apart from Wilder, Fury has been fighting absolute bums who in the 90's would be the sweat bucket holders in the gym. Hope Joshua or Wilder put him to sleep so we can have some excitement instead of his boring tippy tappy style.

    Oliver McCall is fighting soon and will probably be brought in by ESPN to fight Fury next.

    Never paid for a boxing PPV and never would, very rare a boxing fight lives up to the hype.

    you seem to be exagerating the expected buy rate by almost 50%

    Feel free to start a new thread with this, so we aren't over 100 posts in before the RBR part kicks in. We'll use it as the official one for the main page and stickied.

    We're good, I set a thread up. And yeah, the poll...I'm curious how many sense an upset, if any.
