    Does anyone know how many tickets have been sold for this fight?

    I’d be genuinely surprised if more than 3000 people would be stupid enough to part with their hard earned cash to watch this garbage.

    And to top it all off it’s on BT SPORT BOX OFFICE in the UK.

    You cannot make this shit up, Tyson Fury is a CON MAN.

    Mugs will buy this shit mate. The Connor vs Mayweather ppv numbers should tell you how stupid people are
    I’m a fan of fury and even I want to see him knocked out

    Tyson Fury doesn't manage, promote, or matchmake for Tyson Fury...



    You guys do realize that right?

    eh.... That excuse only holds weight for so long. I don't know why we can't admit that some fighters like fighting for a promoter who won't challenge them.

    doesn't matter who it is, every single top rank fight is a letdown. We have discussion after discussion about it here.

    If it were a Lightweight I'd understand....no excuse for not facing elites as a TR lightweight or Featherweight even....


    But heavyweights everywhere are yellow as fuck.....Usyk has to fight Spong because everybody is too much of a bitch to take the risk of embarrassment by getting destroyed by a cruiserweight

    I don't buy that with Top Ranks money, they can't find better than Wallin and Schwarz for Tyson Fury.

    Well....PBC has the most options for "good opponent" types and Haymon would never give Arum one of his guys he could use for Kownacki or Ajagba for the same purpose which is a win on their resume

    Matchroom/DAZN however you label it, also has slim pickings for established opponents....and the ones they do have are either busy or just coming off fights (Povetkin, Price, etc)

    So that leaves either TR or independents....and TR has basically nothing for heavyweights

    So i guess I'm struggling to come up with any good realistic options

    What was the plan BEFORE he signed with Top Rank?

    Fury only signed with Top Rank a few months ago and he did so knowing what path they were going to take him down.

    Couldn't tell you. Only big name fighter i have any sort of mutual contacts with whatsoever is Mr Demetrius Andrade...and i know very limited, if any, insider info from that camp.

    I'm just logic'ing this out....there aren't a ton of opponents.


    Maybe signing with Top Rank was a mistake for both Fury and Top Rank

    Well....i think we can all agree that was the ideal scenario


    Wilder is not completely excused either.....he's been saying shit about giving Fury step aside money to face AJ/Ruiz winner


    So basically if that happens Fury is crushing cans until 2021

    We also should blame WBO/WBA etc rankings

    Aj/Ruiz winner is a real opponent. Wallin is not.
