It's the obvious fight to make, needs to happen.

Too much being made of Wilder's weight. It's not a bodybuilding contest. I'd favour Joshua 65/35 right now but that's because I think Wilder will suit how Joshua fights. Wilder has the power to win though, no doubt.

They'll both earn a packet too!

A good finish by Wilder, much more controlled with his punches than previous fights but Bermane was terrible to be fair.

Joshua been accused of talking about the ‘superior black race’ in an argument with Eddie Chambers

The mask is slipping it seems!

Imagine if Tyson Fury got caught out talking about a superior white race...

Racial tones aside, I don't think he's seen as a nice guy, but he's got manners and can act a gent when he needs to. Yeah, when I first saw him being less than the smiley face he was it seemed out of place, but he's never been a softie, just a polite bloke.

He's shown he's got a dark streak but, lets be honest, no-one's winning belts for being nice.

Act like a gentleman, fight like a beast. If anything, he's more "G" than Wilder by a long, long way.

edit - yeah, i get the race angle, but until I know what context it was said in and if he actually did say that, no place to judge.

I’m all for his mask slipping by the way! No need to be overly nice and fake, especially if you’re the heavyweight champ. A nasty streak is good for any fighter imo.

A racist streak isn’t good for anybody though.

He was apparently arguing with Eddie Chambers on Instagram and told Chambers he was a disgrace to the superior black race.

If this is coming from Fury...he’d be run further out the sport.

Parker and his team definitely whoring themselves here, and fair play to them.

It’s unexpected from him and not really his approach but he’s attempting to get the fight made which is good.

Hopefully nobody will watch his fight against Hughie Fury though! That’s kill any appetite for any Joshua fight

They’ll settle on 70/30. It’s so obvious
Hope they settle on something as at the moment you have Joshua, Parker, Fury and Wilder all undefeated, all making lots of noises about each other but no one actually committing to anything, it's time for them all to stop taking the mediocre fights and go for it now.
