    Anyone planning on watching?

    Does anyone care?

    I’d like to see the gypsy king put him on his arse then fight and smash Joshua to bits.

    Couldn’t give a toss.

    I think Fury is a joke. Wilder I don’t know much about.

    I’ve not looked what time the ring walk is expected to be for the main event, any idea mate?

    AJ would beat them both on the same night.

    In that case I might record the entire bill, get up handy and watch it through whilst avoiding the internet <ok>

    Wilder can’t box, but he’s absolutely brutal if he gets an opening. If he gets one of his bombs to land clean he’ll spark him, but Fury will undoubtedly try and tie him up and keep him on the end of his jab for 12 rounds. It’s an intriguing fight imo. If it goes the distance Fury wins.

    For me, Fury has nothing but his size, height, and weight, which he uses to keep opponents at bay.

    Shame its on a daft time, 2 unbeaten guys going for the world heavyweight title.

    I'd love to see Fury win. Always good to see an arrogant yank flat out in the ring even if it means an arrogant brit standing over him.

    I disagree mate, I think he’s a vastly underated boxer. It’s not always pretty to watch but he adapts his tactics to suit the opponent and his unbeaten record shows it’s been pretty damn effective.

    I’ve watched a fair few of Wilders fights and I quite like him tbh.

    He lost the plot today mate. Fury has a way of getting under his opponents skin in these press conferences.

    Wilder's got a fantastic record but I think Fury's already inside his head and is gonna take him out.

    Never seen wilder fight. Seen fury a few times and he can fight.

    I take all that showman **** with a pinch tbh mate, they’re selling the fight and creating news coverage by making it lively, seen it all before.

    I don’t think Fury can knock him out tbh, he can win the fight but I just can’t see that being with a KO.

    Wilder literally can’t box, but he’s an absolute beast, worth checking out some of his KO’s on YouTube

    This isn't a bad summary of Wilder's career up until about a year ago, if anyone's got a spare 12 minutes:


    He's a big hitter with poor technique and hasn't really faced anyone decent, barring an aging Luis Ortiz.
    This follow-up video covers that fight, where he barely avoided being stopped, before taking out the older fighter:


    I'd watch this one if it was on at a decent time, but I'll probably just catch it the next morning, instead.
    I'm not sure that Fury's physically right for it, unfortunately. The two comeback fights were ridiculously poor.

    Will have a look.

    You not think it may be a step too soon for fury?

    Yeah defo, Fury was better than many gave him credit for last time out, and looked in decent shape given his starting point.

    However, I think Wilder will likely find a way to his chin and level him, as I said he could grind out a points win, but I think this fella is too strong and fit for him over 12 rounds,

    I actually think Fury is one of the cleverest fighters out there ... intriguing ...
