Last saturday i went to rome to watch a good friend of mine fight in a k1 match (which he won. The bill was the glory world series. There was an 8 man elimination tournament fought over 3 x 3 minute rounds featuring 8 of the best muay thai and kickboxers in the world. My friend (jordan watson for those who know there muay thai) was not involved in the tourney. But the guys who were had bawlls!!! No-one was woried about having a loss on there record, they wanted to fight the best. Thats whats lacking in boxing right now. Too many flippin titles = too many ways to become a world champion, and no-one being forced to fight eachother, or in alot of cases no-one wanting to fight the best to be the best. Other combat sports are on the rise

Mick, its certainly a fight i would love to see. Ive been wanting to see Fury in with a guy close to his own size for a long time now, and if that guy is Price then its worth double to me.

Daly Jr: Agreed Price is British & Commonwealth champion while Mancunian Fury holds the Irish title. To be worth 50% Fury needs to bring more to the table then a big mouth, so needs to target the EBU belt sometime soon. Price vs Fury with British, European & Commonwealth title’s on the line would sell massivly next Summer & could actually double up as a World title eliminator.

For the people who wonder why Wlad is fighting the likes of Wach, and why Wlad-Huch seems to be a possibility… this is why. Because hardly any decent contender is willing to take a risk

Anonymous……………. reason being Fury gave up the British title to run from Price once already. Price holds a real belt. Fury holds some mickey mouse belt

fury is bigger name and higher ranked then price why would it be 50 50 ? Fury should take the fight 60 40 in Furys favour

At the end of the day the UK wants Price vs Fury & if Fury wants a 50% split then he needs to bring the EBU title into the equation. Hennesay should be pestering Pulev day & night!

Boytsov looked pretty good when he first started out.But he went through hand problems and then seemed to go flat just dissapeared.This is a clear duck now from Boytsov no doubt.Fury is looking better all around and in good shape aswell.It does look like some guys are side stepping him hope he can put a good fight together and moves on.

Skinny Steve, Wilder has a perfect 100% KO record………yes against lower level fighters……but still he’s stopped everyone of his 25 victims……..Boystov’s KO record isn’t as good and worryingly Boystov couldn’t put away Vinny Madalone………Adamek, old Holyfield and Fury easily stopped Madalone…… & Boystov although he beat never been stopped Guinn recently……..it wasn’t exactly what I would call a particularly convincing display by Boystov.In my opinion I think Wilder is a step up in calibre…….and of course size to Boystov.
I’ve a feeling though that neither Fury or Wilder would be too keen to face each other right now.

wilder should step into the gap here his record is similer to boystov’s

If Boystov wasn’t in good enough shape, the loser should go do something he has a bit of interest in. The Boy is a disgrace.

Why is it off? Because it was too good of a fight?

Rich: Yes mate I’m sorry for the darf comment regarding Joe. he never had the killer instinct after being crucified by the British press over the Enry fight & the tragady that happened when the feller died after a fight with him, but was the best we had in the 70’s. He went for a swim after one of the Ali fights while Muhammad went to hospital.

I had a feeling this was going to happen. After not wanting the Price fight team Fury say he is going to be fighting better opponents ranking a lot higher, Before each of his last 2 fights they announce Fury will be fighting Chagaev and another decent opponent that I can’t remember that would have been good tests for him and every time before the fight, it gets called off and they are replaced with bums in Rogan and Maddalone. You can bet this time it will be another bum. What a Disappointment again, hope they prove me wrong this time and put him in with someone decent that will test him.

CRAP THIS FIGHT WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY INTERESTING. PEREZ VS CHARGEV AND ARREOLA VS STIVERNE ARE ALSO INTERESTING

Mick,bit harsh there on Joe,while i do agree he never reached his true potential because of his hesitancy,none the less his career is littered with named and champion fighters……….

disgrace this Boytsov

What a disappointment!
At last we thought we might get a good fight to watch on CH5 where neither fighter could really be called a strong favourite.
I think team Boystov were getting too ambitious when they said they wanted this fight to be a final eliminator to fight Vitali………Boystov like Fury really hasn’t faced any in shape high calibre fighters to think he stood much chance against a K brother.
4 weeks to prepare was never going to be enough time for someone like Boystov as he would have needed to get some very tall sparring partners.
That said team Boystov don’t seem to be willing to step up to the plate…….so it baffles me as to why they think Boystov………would be anywhere near experienced or ready enough to fight a K brother next year.

O well, I guess we might see Grano vs Fury afterall!

… “Tyson Fury is the biggest embarresment in British H/W boxing since Joe Bugner” … Actually Fury was all for the fight. It was Boytsov who pulled out of the fight. Not in SHAPE??? How many freakin’ years does one have to train to get into shape? … This Boytsov is another David Rodridquez or Malik Scott., “I don’t really want to fight this big tall MFer. Can’t we get Chauncy Welliver?” ..Boytsov has been fighting for nearly a decade and won’t fight contenders … Hang on to that “0” forever dude. You never know when a gaudy record will get you a title shot — even when you’re like 36 years old.

Yet it was STILL Boystov who pulled out…

Fury has performed well to date and Boystov is currently more of a step up than Price. Both Price and Fury need to step up to Eurpoean level before a fight between the two can even be seriously imagined.

Fury made a claim that he wanted to fight once a month earlier this year. What happened to that then? He’s running scared of Price & Pulev & looking to get his lantern jaw cleaned by a Klitschko just for the ca$h. He started real well as English, British & Commonwealth champion, but his career appears to have stalled like a 90 year old granny riding a Triumph Daytona!

It seems it was boystov who pulled out

No there won’t be any World title action! It’s the vacant WBA interim bangle. Rigo is the 100% #1 WBA champion @ 122Lb & this fight should be for the far more prestigious British title which Quigg currently holds. As for Tyson Fury he’s fast becoming the biggest embarresment in British H/W boxing since Joe Bugner. Oh I’ll take that back Audley Harrison!
