    Chisora is gone as a top level HW but Whyte is a real danger in the division, hence why he's been avoided by all of the 'big 3' for the past 2 years. Longest stint as overlooked mandatory challenger ever apparently....

    I like Wilder's recent record, he seems to take hard fights more openly than the others necessarily seem to - there was really no need for him to fight Ortiz again, he's such an awkward match-up for him, but he took it. Similarly fighting Fury, both first time and, as it looks to be being made, again. I think he's also been dodged by many of the fighters he'd have liked to fight (AJ, Wlad etc) because he's too dangerous.

    Also, Ruiz is a fucking tool, to admit he hadn't been training properly after the fight was just disrespectful. There's no need for AJ to fight him again. He'll probably be able to get a decent fight from this now, maybe a rematch with Parker or a big UK fight with Dillian Whyte, but if he loses that he's done. As Squaredisk said up thread, I really hope we don't see him pissing his money away and taking stupid fights aged 40 because he needs to make ends meet... he's got real skills and he had a real shot, just sad to see it thrown away. If he had trained properly and come in fit he could have really made it hard for AJ, to lose having not given it your best shot is insane...

    I agree there is clamour for it, but after seeing AJ's performance this weekend it could be cagey and dull. I'd love to see Fury beat Wilder, then Wilder - Joshua (would be explosive, Wilder would have to make it so and AJ's skills of avoidance are nowhere near Fury's) with the winner fighting Fury again. But that's dreamland. We should probably just be glad Fury and Wilder are going to fight....

    Absolutely not, no contractual obligation and Joshua is already looking well past him. Sadly no talk about Wilder/Fury, looks like he'll fight Pulev next, March or April at White Hart Lane looking the most likely. He's going to run through his mandatories for a while to try to keep all three belts together. There will obviously be a clamour for him to fight whoever wins the big one, and he clearly wants to be undisputed, but Eddie Hearn will want to milk him for at least another 18 months before allowing him in with someone who he would start underdog against...

    I've got your winter linen signature shirt on my list! Saw it when looking back through this thread, looks lovely, definitely going to pick one up in due course... Cheers.

    Aye, that makes sense. I've been to the stoop quite a few times but never had to pay as was a guest of bloodgate's own Tom Williams as my flatmate was best friends with his fiance... Now need to work out how much I want to watch the Quins - Ulster game in a couple weeks...

    I'm now feeling slightly sheepish about my old man buying all the gloucester tickets! Going to have to up my christmas present game this year...

    I've been meaning to get to more prem rugby (I watching Glaws ~4 times a year with my old man, but it's such a good day/evening out I wanted to see more) - just checking the prices for Quins - Ulster, am I missing something, but the cheapest seats seem to be £40 and most are £50+! Is that really the state of things these days? That's insane. I was expecting ~£20-25. Maybe I just haven't been for so long but that really feels punchy...

    Sounds great mate! I don't know what your schedule/available time is but if you can fit Gospel Pass in you won't regret it - I went from Monmouth to Abergavenny so still got a bit of the Wye Valley in and it was all beautiful....
