    Anthony Joshua's world heavyweight fight against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev will not be postponed again, even if it has to be held behind closed doors, says Eddie Hearn.

    The pair will potentially meet on 12 December at London's O2 Arena, having originally been scheduled to fight in June at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Who even wants to see this shit?

    All the world wants to see is:

    Fury vs Joshua
    Whyte vs Wilder (maybe not so much after that brutal KO, still think Whyte would smash Wilder).


    I remember the hype for Floyd v Manny, and that burnt out after they spent so many years not fighting. Ultimately, they didn’t fight in their prime and it was a boring overhyped BS fight. The same shits gonna happen with Fury v Joshua, unless they fight their ‘agreed’ two bouts in 2021.

    I think with Whyte and Wilder, it could go either way, both very very powerful. Wilder was massively exposed by Fury twice. Not sure why they’re even fighting for a 3rd time.

    Exposed by a very good boxer. Whyte has a brawlers chance but doesnt have the ring IQ to outbox wilder to stop him from landing that killer KO

    Yeah, agree with that, fair comment. He would have to KO him in the early rounds if he’s a chance to win.

    What about AJ? I thought he showed immense IQ vs Ruiz 2. If he fights Wilder like that (like that fight will ever happen now anyway), I think he’ll beat him, plus he has raw power, so can KO him at any point also.

    Fury beats AJ 9 times out of 10 IMO. I lobe Fury, everything about him is beautiful.

    We have seen AJ get rocked by Klitchsko and Ruiz, i think Wilder would KO him tbh. That being said, we dont know what kind of Wilder would turn up after Fury humiliated him
