    It's messed up that boxers and their promoters can negotiate their own deals with TV networks. Imo any and all deals should be done between the networks and the boxing federations, who can then offer an increased purse based on those deals. Allowing boxers to negotiate deals just makes arranging fights across networks and promotions much harder and means fighters can more easily duck each other.

    I thought boxing had potentially turned a bit of a corner with regards to fighters avoiding each other, but with talk that Wilder vs Fury might be harder to arrange because of Fury's ESPN deal and no sign of Joshua fighting either of them, it's not looking great with regards the big heavyweight fights people want to see.

    Doesn’t Hearn have Usyk as well? He’s gonna be a huge draw over the next couple of years.

    I didn't include him since he hasn't established himself at heavyweight. Time will tell how good he is there.

    Even without establishing himself, his fights will be a huge draw because of his pedigree.

    Yeah, Usyk vs Joshua would be huge regardless. All Sky have to do is mention their undefeated records and show his KO of Bellew over and over again.

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on Joshua v Miller? Just watched there first press conference think millers just trying to hype it up shoving Joshua straight from the off,testing the waters!
    If fury was speaking straight he knocked him down 7 times in sparring then sent him packing!
    Be a good American debut for him I think and a good route to wilder hopefully, since fury signed his TV deal the rematch could be off the cards for a while he’ll likely have a few walk overs first to make him look good for them first.

    Wilder is currently a free agent so the only thing stopping him fighting Fury is Espn and Arum wanting the fight to marinate.

    First time watching Joyce and he looks very slow, very easy to hit and doesn't seem particularly heavy handed. He gets hammered by the elite heavyweights in the division.

    6 rounds to put a 40 year old pudding to bed.

    Wilder took 1 round and 1 punch :o

    Edit: They think he'll be ready to fight one of the big three mid 2020? If he starts throwing his punches now they might land mid 2020.
