Fury vs Wilder penciled in for Dec 19th at Raiders stadium with limited crowd. Bob Arum just said it on the radio.

Yeah OK then. Not with America breaking the virus case records daily.

It won't be in the US with a crowd until next year at least. We will have crowds way before America does, so why not do it here in the UK?

Yeah cases on the rise again in Vegas linked to indoor casinos.

Think they r looking at America to maximize their ppv money. We know how much the yanks pay and that fight will always sell well in the uk no matter what time of the night it's at or where it is. England has only recently starting easing restrictions so in afew weeks they could be in the same situation at America. An outdoor arena in Dec with limited spectators could possibly work depending on the situation at the time.
Also Fury doesn't have an UK boxing licence.

I think our situation is very different in the UK to America.

Looking at Worldometer's numbers, America is having 60,000-75,000 cases a day nation wide, with many states having much higher daily cases than most countries in Europe at their peak.

We've been easing the lockdown since around Easter (I include the ridiculous beach crowding as easing of lockdown on Easter weekend) and our daily cases continue to drop, so I'm quite confident we're on the right track and we'll open up to crowds and things by the end of this year.

You are right, the fight sells in the UK no matter what time it's scheduled for. But Fury doesn't need a UK license to fight here, David Haye and Chisora fought on a license from Luxembourg at the West Ham stadium lol.

Have to take into consideration the size of them states. California has over 30 million alone.

The rate is rising in the UK and as they further ease restrictions imo it will continue to rise.

Fury could get his license back in the UK if he wanted but he has no desire to box again in the UK and has declared Vegas his new boxing home.

Oh yeah there is no doubt that most states are the size of countries in both landmass and population, but when they are doing stupid things like opening up Disney world, when the virus is peaking in Florida, it makes you wonder how bad this is going to get in America.

I thought we handled this virus badly, but the Americans are taking it to a whole new level.

Divided nation it is mate. It's pure greed by the fighters, if they really want to fight now they can fight but they will not accept less money. Fair play to Whyte at least he wants to actually box someone.

Also I'm doing good mate. Just itching to see some good fights!

Speaking of which, the ufc has some really good fights last night. Rose namajunas had a real nasty eye and nose injury from her win.

I'm not a UFC fan mate. I would watch the odd fight but I applaud the quality of fights they r able to put on atm. When u have one organisation u r able to do that. Boxing is full of too many different bodies. Funny, I'm complaining now about this and they said the same in 1922 when they were complaining about the amount of boxing bodies involved in the game then. 100 years ago they faced the same problems.
