Fury vs Joshua Upcoming Fight: Feels Like Kids Fighting On A Playground
No one is more excited than me to see Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua finally battle it out. However, it always feels like decades on knowing an actual date (just finalized August 14th) as the WBA is never clear and acts like a teenage girl on her period when making decisions. One thing that pisses me off about the WBA is this: you already mentioned how you don’t want to compete with Olympics coverage and ratings, so why did you even entertain the earlier August date? Why even have media reports on that?

Especially British press, who take a whole damn day to get a point across anyway in a story. It becomes pointless. Each time there is a fight to set up does the WBA just go, “Hey, you know what we should do. Set up another fight.” “Oh that sounds like a great idea. Let’s do that.” “Yes let’s do it.” “I’m so glad you came up with that idea.” “Thank you, me too. We should grab a beer and celebrate my great idea.” And this goes on for months?
Don’t even get me started on Saudi Arabia. Now, I know why they picked it. Fury complains to his team that they can’t do it in the United Kingdom because he doesn’t have the fan base. Joshua in turn goes and complains to his team that they can’t do it in the United States because he doesn’t have the fan base there that Fury has built up. Where can they do it that will generate money for both athletes and the hosting country? Saudi Arabia. This is not only pathetic that these two are complaining like high schoolers about who is more popular, but also you’re taking money away from your country.

If one of them was smart (maybe Fury in this position), he should say “Sure, let’s have it in the UK, but I want to walk out first.” and then walk out to the song Joshua walks out to just to piss him off. Maybe throw him off his mental game.
We know (or maybe this is brand new information) that the promoters of both athletes really dislike each other. So this back and forth, tit for tat, is endless. No wonder it has taken so long for us to get this fight date nailed down. The trash talk has already started and y’all know I’m here for it until there’s a winner declared. Meanwhile, I will be gearing up to cheer for the (haughty) Gypsy King and my British husband will be cheering for Joshua. Go figure…
