I'm a UK Fury fan and I flew to LA in December for the Wilder fight, along with thousands of other Brits. Flying to LA in December meant the flight was only around 300.

Flying to Vegas is around 1,000 and accommodation is also a lot more expensive. Not many people have 3,000/4,000 to fly over for a Schwar fight.

If this fight was in New York, like Joshua's then the crowd would have been a lot higher. Flying to New York is only a 5 hour journey and it's only 300.

I'd be shocked if Arum and Fury expected thousands to travel over for this.

Fury vs Wilder 2 would have sold great. Arum is getting senile if he thought he could pull the plug on the fight everyone wanted and substitute a fight nobody wants. I hope he loses his shirt on this bs

I've personally seen more promotion for this than I did Joshua/Ruiz, I'm not lying.
People keep saying Fury has the personality to be an American star. I call bullshyt. Talking is one thing but he's not a strong puncher and his herkey jerky movement is awkward looking. It's not a slick presentation. He might be a top 2 HW right now but he's not gonna be a big star out here with that style.

I guess Arum thought marketing Fury as the big quirky white guy who'd battled mental health / depression would win the hearts of white America .

This whole Fury signed up to Top Rank, ESPN thing has had me confused since day 1. I wasnt convinced Joshua could ever be as big a star in the States as he was in the UK but with Tyson Fury i KNOW he isnt going to be a star in the States. His style is great but ugly to real Boxing fans, making for ugly fights, how Arum expects American casual fans to jump on board with that is beyond me. I also cant get my head around this Schwarz fight being on PPV in the UK? Im not even sure i would of stayed up and watched it on normal BT im certainly not paying for it.

Personally i just think Bob Arum panicked. Right now American Boxing TV seems to be a 3 headed prong. DAZN, ESPN and Showtime Fox. One side had Joshua, one side had Wilder so Bob made a desperate grab for the other big name in the division in Fury. But i really dont see how Fury sells in America.

Maybe the plan is to make him look like a heavyweight Sweet Pea against a no hoper for 8 rounds and then KO him.

Even if it doesn’t sell, they can whip up a highlight reel for Wilder/Fury 2 of him dodging punches at high speed. He’s got a few decent looking KO’s too.

Putting this garbage in Vegas was a head scratcher too.

I think they genuinely overestimated his name value. They thought now was the time, coming off the Wilder fight, make a ton of interview videos, put him in Vegas.
He's like Wilder in that people do find him interesting, but they're not paying to see him if he doesn't have a dance partner.

Good info. When people asked why Joshua was fighting in NY my idea was that it made it easier for his fanbase to see him than if he was in Vegas.
