    i suspect that any good promoter would do that, because if they saw any vulnerabilities that they could capitalise on theyd sign the fury/wilder winner asap. fury looked hot-chit in that fight and is best to be avoided for a bit longer (which is the conclusion ajs team/promoter would have came to).

    aj has done a great job at fighting high-ranked opposition his entire career and barring furys win over klitschko and wilder aj has an insane resume at hw. he basically matches furys win with his own over klitschko and although he didnt overthrow wilder he has a whos who of names on his record.

    so looking forward to aj/fury and wilder/aj. those two fights need to happen before they retire, hopefully wilder avoids the trilogy for now and builds himself back up.
    Joshua's win over Klitschko doesn't compare to Fury's.

    Klitschko had barely lost a round in 12 years before fighting Fury, he was also active and fighting in his backyard, Fury shut him out.

    AJ faced a Klitschko who had been out of the ring for 2 years, in the UK, and went absolute life and death with him, and was a few seconds away from getting KTFO.

    AJ's resume is overrated.

    Matchroom's obsession with stadium fights is the reason 'I am bored of stadium fights, just make the fights in a boxing arena etc'

    Match-room has two obsessions, Stadium fights and the song Sweet Caroline.

He took zero damage and could have easily fought Pulev in late March/Early April, then gave Usyk a shot late July.

    He is not Canelo, he has not been fighting professionally since a teen and had 56 fights, he does NOT need to fight every 6 months and especially not as a unified champion with mandatory obligations.... he can't pick-up and drop belts and fight in multiple weight divisions.

    All I have heard this past two weeks is Hearn saying "We can pay Pulev to step aside" "Wilder should step-aside" and now it's "Usyk could be a problem".

    YOU CREATED THE PROBLEM BY NOT FIGHTING AND CLEARING YOUR MANDATORY'S YOU DUMB F**K!!!

    This even happened during Wilder negotiations, it was "Povetkin could be a problem".... FFS will Joshua ever not have a mandatory and a hurdle in the way of undisputed? and knowing this why is he not fighting more often KNOWING he has two guys waiting?
    Heard the main reason is , he was counselled by Hearn by the way , they are going to wait for Tyson Fury to retire
    Then they can accuse another boxer of not wanting the fight
    Only difference is this time it will be 200 million

    It's pretty obvious that Hearn is looking to keep his options open & wants to keep milking that cash cow out of every last drop.

    He knows the AJ gravy train is nearly at its end.
