    Why ***** about Fury's video when Fury is full of crap and a drama queen? Dude is always saying bs for attention. Just keep working on negotiations until it's signed or someone gives up it's not that hard.

      “The way that I read (the situation) is that Matchroom and Queensberry are doing their best to try and make this fight,” Hearn added. “It is complicated. DAZN and BT still have to get into it. And that’s coming or starting.”- Eddie Hearn

      This has been, and will always be, the real obstacle! There was a time when Hearn admitted that Haymon has to bring content to FOX and SHO, Arum had to bring content to ESPN, and he had to bring content to DAZN! That's the reality. FOX and SHO didn't give Haymon the bag, so he could arrange to "SHARE" profits with ESPN! ESPN didn't give Top Rank the bag so Arum could make arrangements for ESPN to "SHARE" profits with DAZN, etc.! DAZN is in a tough spot, becaue it's quite obvious the other kids on the block don't want to "SHARE" with the new kids!

      DAZN Head Responds To Arum, Willing To Have 'Conversation' on Making 175-Pound Undisputed Fight
      June 30, 2022

      Immediately after Beterbiev’s recent second-round demolition of Joe Smith Jr. at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Arum informed BoxingScene.com that he had no desire to let Beterbiev fight Bivol on DAZN, which the 90-year-old promoter has consistently denigrated for its supposedly dismal viewership figures. “We ain’t doing a fight on ‘Dead-Zone’ (DAZN) which nobody watches,” Arum cracked.

      Asked to respond to Arum’s comments, Joe Markowski, an executive vice president at DAZN, took issue with Arum’s seemingly preemptive combative stance and apparent objection to broaching the topic of collaboration. While cross-promotional events are admittedly rare in boxing, given the competing network obligations of boxing’s top promoters, Markowski thought it was foolhardy nevertheless for Arum to relay to the public that he had no wish to make a fight that would otherwise satisfy the sports’ fans.

      “That’s absurd, right?” Markowski said of Arum’s attitude in an interview with BoxingScene.com. “And I’ll tell you why. I’ve got a lot of respect for Bob, but there’s a problem in boxing with promoters and broadcasters refusing to cooperate with other promoters and other broadcasters. Fights will not happen if people have that attitude.

      “As a boxing promoter, Bob Arum’s job and the job of his company is to make boxing fights happen that the public want. We are very willing to work with other promoters and other broadcasters for the bigger fights on the pay-per-view platform. We can price match, we can operate in a shared rights environment. We are very willing to do that.

      “Boxing promoters’ jobs are to make the big fights happen. Telling the public they won’t because of internal business competition reasons is a surprising tactic to take and a surprising communications line to take to the public. It’s basically you saying I won’t do my job for you boxing fans in making the big fights happen.”

      This is not the first time Markowski has questioned Arum’s rhetoric. Earlier this year, Arum made comments about the women’s lightweight unification bout between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano – a fight streamed by DAZN – that were widely perceived as insensitive and retrograde.

      “Again, huge respect for Bob Arum, a legend of the promotional game but that’s the wrong way to approach,” Markowski said. “There’s been a couple of things that he’s said recently – his comments on the womens’ fights – that [suggest] that he may not be thinking with all of his faculties. I’m surprised he took that line.”

      Markowski reiterated that he and his team are fully motivated to make the undisputed 175-pound fight with Arum’s Top Rank. Markowski said he understands that Arum has a contractual obligation, but he believes that a dialogue between both parties could potentially lead to a solution. Markowski, however, thinks Arum’s actions reflect an unwillingness to find common ground.

      “If they want to have a conversation with us about making a deal around that then get in touch,” Markowski said. “They’ve got our email addresses, they’ve got our phone numbers, they know who we are. We are very willing to have a conversation.

      “We want to make the fight happen. We don’t want to block fights from happening because of critical, contractual reasons.”

      Mr. Markowski is willing to share, because he has very little to offer! Usyk wants Wilder. Usyk no longer needs Hearn, nor MatchRoom. Fury could fight Usyk or Ruiz, just as easy as fighting Joshua, and he's still gonna be successful! In fact, Fury could fight DuBois, and be successful! What about Joshua? Look how Bivol vs. Zurdo happened! It wasn't something Hearn wanted! That's 2 fighters who BOTH fight on DAZN! Mr. Markowski has problems! If Canelo goes the PBC route, they are AZZ OUT!

        The deal and agreement has gone further then team Fury anticipated ,it’s now phase two which is keep making Hearn send back the contract with little communication just enough to get Fury to say he’s waited long enough .

        I hope Warren actually wants the fight we know Arum doesn’t and Furys already made a deal with Charr behind the scenes which means he’s about to duck Joshua and Usyk for a February fight if he goes through with it . What a garbage champion already and he hasn’t even held the title for a minute .

          or how about this...perhaps Frank and Eddie should grow a pair and actually sort it themselves!

              Cue Eddie Incels to defend the honor of 3x beaten and in dramatic decline Joshua. A loss to fury will mark the absolute end for the Michael Moorer of his era, the 4th best heavyweight. Eddie knows this and wants to grind out more faux events vs soft touches. The cover is blown.

                    Joshua was ready last year, Fury too, but then the third Wilder fight had to be made, and it was a thriller, to be fair.

                    But yeah, Fury and his team are kinda demanding and perhaps not the fairest, because Joshua had a hard fight last month against Usyk.

                    I think both want it, but the broadcasting seems to be an issue that will take a bit of time.
                    Thriller? It was like watching two guys at the pub
