The WBC ordering Whyte vs Breazeale is bigger news than the AJ fight, the winner will likely get a shot at the Wilder/Fury winner. Wilder hasn’t fought a mandatory in forever, if he has at all, I’m not sure. Proper cat among the pigeons.

What the f***. Tyson Fury has signed a promotional deal with Bob Arum, which means the Wilder rematch probably won't be happening. Arum and PBC hate eachother and have deals with different networks. So both Fury and Wilder ignored big offers from Joshua....... and now they're going to fight who?

Plebs :lol:
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Fury has no intention of ever fighting Joshua, I figured as much back when he chose BT over sky.

What happened with Fury/Wilder first fight then? Did Fury have a non exclusive deal at that point?

I'm not sure if true or not but heard on a podcast that Warren approached Matchroom for a split BT/Sky deal for AJ/Fury knowing AJ couldn't do it because of the Sky deal?

Fury didn't have a US tv deal. Froggy is right that it can be negotiated, but they usually don't, it tends to happen for the biggest fights like Mayweather/Pacquiao and Tyson/Lewis, when the money is too good not to. Wilder and Fury only did about 300k buys in the US, which was not enough. My guess is that the 3 of them will go their separate ways.

Bad news. No chance of Fury fighting Wilder or Joshua now.
