    Fury V Joshua - A New Low In The Heavyweight Division And Boxing Generally?

    Joshua is not a class boxer and certainly does not deserve the label of an "elite" boxer. there is no reason whatsoever for the boxing board of control and the promoters to arrange this fight taking place.
    Each boxer will make millions of pounds. The hype will be bigger than the fight. Joshua is certain to lose unless Fury plays the clown.
    There is no integrity in boxing and the money grabbing people, who promote the fights, will eventually destroy the sport.

    Why is it so many things are reduced to the lowest common denominator in today's world?

    The fans have wanted this for a long time. Promoters are only delivering, and profiting.

    The “retired” Fury better not think this is a walk over, and not train for real, or he will lose.

    Boxing is so contrived and limited, the entire sport is a walking dead.

    MMA is where its at.

    Joshua simply does not have the ability to make a fight of it let alone beat Fury. Joshua is not a good boxer.
    I am a huge fan of boxing and I have never heard of fans being keen to see this fight. We were when Joshua was climbing up the top 5. But when the fat unheard of Mexican beat him we saw Joshua's real level of ability.

    I guarantee Joshua will not throw a punch during the first 4 rounds.

    Andy Ruiz was far from unknown. Joshua lost to a puncher in that fight. Had he won he would have had a title shot vs Fury. Instead Wilder got the shot.

    In a match with a boxer vs a puncher, the boxer wins 99% of the time. So Joshua will get smashed, but a battle of the Englishmen is going to happen for their pockets and the fans.

    I got no problem with the fight, Fury has to fight someone. It’s not like current heavyweight division is full of qualified top contenders.

    I know Ruiz has a good pedigree, he was no pushover but, Joshua as not good enough and Ruiz, despite his amateur record, was never a class act by any means. Joshua was and is rubbish at the "top" level. He simply is not a good boxer.
    The second fight with Ruiz is one of the worst title fights I have ever seen, topped only by THE worst I have ever seen > Usyk V Joshua.

    The fact Joshua publicly supported the BLM telling black people not to purchase from white owned businesses may have impacted on my assessment of him but I do know a poor boxer when I see one - as per his hyped up as an ELITE fighter.
