Hey guys I heard a rumor, but you know boxing 99% of the time it's Bullshit..... but they say that for the first time in the history, all 4 belts in the cruiserweight division will belong proudly around the waist of one man?
Apparently the Cruiser WBSS final may be pushed back to June/July. Maybe to have it together with Groves-Smith around that time?
Wilder has let slip his real plans for his next opponent: Adam Kownacki. What a joke this guy is
Or maybe the Saudi money didn't turn up. That always seems to happen whenever someone plans a fight in that part of the world. They should just let the Russians host it. Usyk is a Russian nationalist himself anyway, so the crowd wouldn't be biased
Yeah it's terrible. I get that he doesn't want to let Hearn have his way, but if he came over here and sparked Whyte the British fans would be absolutely clamouring for Joshua to face and Hearn would have nowhere left to run. Plus I personally reckon that Wilder vs Whyte would be an entertaining bout
If he is dead set on swerving Whyte then he could at least face an established contender like Breazeale rather than a prospect
I bet Wilder's next fight will be signed within the next two weeks and he won't even negotiate with Hearn
I don't wear belts with jeans, got to keep the challenger mindset
Youre at your vacation in Argentina and this guy triple jabs your gf's ass What do you do?
i just watched eddie's face off with higgins on sky sports. he's a really cool guy. up to this point i always thought of him as a bit of a cunt who just puts on a nice guy act
I don't usually say this but he's Iiterally reddit the boxer
yea, i agree. it would be one thing if whyte was just a complete bum and the fight would be a joke, but it would be a better fight than 90% of deontay's previous contests, so it really makes no sense.
i understand he doesn't want to tap dance for hearn and take the path they mapped out for him, but if it's only going to advance your career, why not? take the $4 mill, put the ego to the side and get it done.
i don't have a problem with him not going to cardiff, but to be going this overboard is only going to hurt himself and risk the chances of that fight even happening. ignorant hood mentality at it's finest, nigga needs to tighten up and just accept the whyte fight.
I wonder how much Povetkin is making for fighting as the co-main. Must be the easiest money of his life whatever that is
2Roughly one month after the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation Usyk declared (on 28 April 2014) he would never exchange his Ukrainian citizenship for a Russian one and that he considered Crimea a part of Ukraine.2
Eddie is clearly the lesser evil when it comes to boxing promoters. He's not as much of a true blue boxing man as someone like Warren but he's about as clean and honest as you can get in this business
I think Wilder would KO Whyte round 8. That said Whyte is better than everybody he's faced bar Ortiz and there's not much between them because Whyte is young. He would beat 2015 Stiverne by decision, Szpilka, Washington are journeymen who would be KO'd. Wide decision against Chris Arreola and Johann Duhaupas. I think it's a combination of Haymon not wanting Wilder who's now valuable to showtime not fighting in prime time on his shows and them not completely trusting him as a boxer, they don't want him going 12 rounds in the UK
He should have had his Ring title taken from him when he fought at Super Welter against Smith, but whatever.`
>they don't want him going 12 rounds in the UK I think this is the main issue here, Wilder can deal with having to take Whyte's head off first, but he's just trying to strong arm Eddeh into making Whyte come to Brooklyn. He is the Champion after all
I honestly believe all of this is just the universe correcting itself because ggg won the fight
That defeats the point of the Wilder/Whyte and Joshua/Miller interim fights, though. If Joshua fought Miller at the O2, it would make no sense. Just like if Wilder fought Whytea the Barclays. The point of these fights is to get them in front of different audiences.
this he's also the only one who's undefeated
Does it really matter though? Wilder Joshua is probably going to happen in Vegas anyway because 20k people in T-Mobile is going to make way more money than some 90k meme stadium fight. I just don't think it's really necessary for Deontay to go to the uk
