Anyone catch it?

He'd make a great 606v2 poster.

He claims Britain doesn't have a single "proper" world champion. Instead, he labels them all "British world champions". He includes Eubank Sr. in that bracket.

Pound for pound is a load of guff ("It's like saying if I was a dolphin I could swim underwater and s**g a whale).

He also questioned his own standing ("Who've I fought? I haven't fought anyone").

Katie Hopkins needs bending over and "bamboozling" and win, lose or draw he's off to live in a caravan - off the grid.

Magic.

I like him. Not for his boxing, more for his antics. I do find him funny.

If world champion means being the best in their weight division, with wins over number 2 and probably 3, then we don't have any, do we?

Na, there are very few of those:

Klitschko
Stevenson
Ward
Cotto
Rigo
Gonzalez

Of the British lot, we don't even have anyone who could be classed as the number two man in the division do we? Brook, maybe.

I'd say De Gale is a world champion?

If also say Frampton.

But that's it.

I always seriously worry about Fury and his health he genuinely sounds like he has some sort of disability with the way he talks and how he can't string sentences together.

Either that or he is just the thickest person I've actually ever seen/heard.

What I do worry about even more is how he will be after Wlad punches his face around for a few rounds because that's can't be good.

I worry how Fury will cope mentally with the defeat to Wlad. I fear it will be pretty brutal with his pride keeping him in it far too long (as long as he isn't stretched out).

I don't think Fury will take a battering against Klitschko, he will be stopped pretty quickly.

Wlad won't let him off the hook that easy. Don't think he likes him at all so may want to carry him.

However fury has a majorly suspect chin and has been dropped by tomato cans and cruiserweights so could be stopped early.

I totally agree with you mobile, how any one can say Fury is funny must have a weird sense of humour.If a five year old came out with statements like that it would be slightly amusing but I definitely think he is a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

They're no more "champions" than the rest.

Britain's only champions in my lifetime were Haye, Hatton, Calzaghe and Lewis.

You hold the belt the technically you are a 'world champion'. If we're going to now say that De Gale isn't a world champion then neither was Tommy Hearns at middle or super middle. Can't remember if he was ever rated as number one at welterweight either.

It's a murky road we go down if we're now picking and choosing who's a world champ.

Don't get me wrong though, there's too many 'world champs' around for my liking.

Around here that just means you don't have a sense of humour, reality however is you're not an immature numpty who is easily amused.

Wlad would be foolish to try to carry anyone, not exactly blessed with a great chin himself if he walks into one, so see him finishing this ASAP.

As an immature numpty, I don't mind fury. He comes out with some tosh, most of his rants and antics are childish and inane, but I make no apology for finding bizarre slapstick value in a 6 foot 9 bloke running around in a batman outfit. Laughing at or with him? Does it matter. I don't think finding trigger happy TV and mock the week amusing have to be mutually exclusive. He's certainly funnier than Michael f**ing Macintyre.. But then so is appendicitis.

Most people think he's a talentless oaf and that he's stupid. If he is both of these things he's done pretty well for himself, keeping himself in the public eye, selling fights, winning them, getting himself some big pay days. 

It's been said countless times before... He doesn't take himself seriously, why would/should/does anyone else.

Degale, Brook, Frampton, Quigg, Lee. Are all valid world champs, none of them however are undisputed world champs.

I think with some of the other talent out there they all may struggle to be undisputed, but have earned their belts IMO.

Every fighter earns everything they win but they're winning devalued awards. The WBA have something like four belts per division. The guys you mention are no more deserving "champions" than the likes of Flanagan and co.

I'm on the fighters' sides here: a belt helps them earn more but a world title in 2015 isn't even what it was in 1985.

He'll now have to post solely on sensible forums where everyone agrees with him on louis and mayweather. He may feel lost for a while not having idiots to educate, but i'm sure he'll get over it. Very Happy

It was fun while it lasted. The parallel universe Floyd fans exist in was an intrepid adventure but all good things come to an end.

What's to miss? Millions of people spent a load of money on a terrible fight that will likely put them off ever paying for another?

The hangover from his retirement has been an incredibly happy one.

Well his fights weren't always exciting but he did bring in viewers. Perhaps most paid to see him lose, but it got people talking about the sport.

I get GGG is not American, but do you not fight 150K is terrible numbers??

Ok for a first PPV -about the going rate isn't it?

Floyd brought in viewers but what did he show them? Dull boxers aren't going to bring boxing back to the masses.

I agree Haz, Floyd has retired at the right time. The problem with boxing is, UFC/MMA is a live competitor that isn't going away.

I love watching Kovalev and GGG, but they can't compete with the likes of Conor McGregor.

Canelo vs Cotto is a big fight, but the Aldo vs Conor fight will kill its numbers.

Floyd couldn't draw flies to Poopie before riding on the back of Gatti, ODLH and Hatton's popularity.

GGG is probably the most exciting top level fighter of the last 20 years. A potential megastar who's style will draw people to boxing not stink them away from it. Boxing's future is brighter than ever.

Maybe not every fight, but Floyd has drawn huge figures over the last few years. My point was that just because GGG is not doing huge PPV now does not mean he won't in the near future. GGG is probably more popular now than Floyd was prior to the ODLH fight. What GGG needs to do is hop on the back of Canelo/Cotto's popularity, that combined with his exceptional ability, exciting style and potential mega fights with Ward/Kovalev/etc could make him one of the biggest draws boxing has seen.

Yes he does need Cotto or Canelo. If he crushes them, that should help him become a star.

Huge PPV numbers of 1.3 million like Floyd used to get is good for him financially but it still means that out of the millions of fight fans out there, only 1.3 million cared enough to see the fight live.

Want boxing to become main stream and popular again? Get it back on free TV.

The average amount of people watching per PPV buy is probably ~10. 1.3million = 13 million watchers. And of course much of the rest of the world will show it for free

Boxing will never have the quantity of other sports like football. Football is like a soap opera (loads of it, short term, all forgotten about after a week). Boxing is like a blockbuster hollywood film, maybe only one or two good ones a year but worth the wait.

I can't get in to UFC. Used to watch it when Chuck Liddell was at his peak but it just doesn't do it for me now. I'll watch Mcgregor and Rouseys next fights but have no interest in anyone else or even their undercards.

Boxing on the other hand, draws me in and and sometimes excites me too. Boxing sometimes throws up fights that you just have to watch and you know that everyone will be talking about it straight after.

I don't think UFC have even had a Froghall Groves 1 for excitement yet.
