They will. Why would he give up his belt.

50 million, for this fight...lol. Not in our lifetime. No promoter will pay that much for this fight. This fight is worth 10 million tops.

Quote:
they risk espn or pbc or a random lunatic winning the purse bid.
ESPN and PBC are not promoters so no worries, they will not bid.

joshua would then have to fight off of dazn
Joshua is on a fight by fight basis with DAZN...he's able to fight off of DAZN with no problems.


Quote:
and fight off of sky,
Top Rank has a deal with ESPN for U.S rights, Sky Sports have shown several Top Rank fights, heck they are showing Wilder/Fury. Sky will get the Pulev/Joshua fight whether it's Matchroom or Top Rank that wins the purse bid.

with NO REMATCH CLAUSE.
Well that the drawback to fighting mandatories, it's apart ofthe sport.

Quote:
it's just not going to happen. they'll either make pulev a really high offer or they'll vacate.
They'll never vacate...they overpay Pulev, it's not the first time they've done this.


Quote:
pulev will have to choose between a huge purse or a vacant title.
I can't speak for Pulev, if he doesn't want to fight AJ over money, he loses his mandatory opportunity...as for AJ, on to the next.

Quote:
i think a deal will get done. but it's not going to be anywhere near 35%.
This fight ain't that big...dollars should be no problem for any promoter bidding for the fight.
