    Not sure if this is really going to be a go but it would be great to see Morecambe's greatest gypsy knock Wilder out in Sydney.

    Scheduling wise they could put it on during the lunch break of the cricket. Would line up perfectly with the US market

    Eddie Hearn, promoter for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, says the 2021 unification with WBC champion Tyson Fury is unlikely to take place on UK soil.

    The fight, which is arguably the biggest fight in the sport, will be pursued by groups in numerous countries.

    Investment groups in Saudi Arabia and China are expected to make significant offers to secure the rights to host that event. Casinos in Las Vegas are expected to come to the table as well.

    Venues in the UK will find it very difficult, at least financially, to secure that fight.

    Joshua's last bout, a December rematch with Andy Ruiz, was scooped up for a tremendous amount of money by Saudi Arabia.

    Fury will first take part in a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder before the year is over, while Joshua is going to defend his world titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.

    If both champions win, their respective camps will work together to finalize a two-fight deal.

    "If we can do the fight in the UK, fantastic, (but) we know Saudi Arabia would love to have this fight. We had a wonderful experience last time with the Andy Ruiz fight. We've had offers from China, we've had offers from around the world. This is the biggest fight in boxing, it doesn't get any bigger," Hearn said.

    "There's not going to be any country that stages major events that won't want this fight. Everyone will talk about this fight taking place in the UK but it doesn't work like that.

    "We have to go back to report the offers to these people's teams. It's a dangerous sport so let them make their money. It's a two-fight deal so one will take place in an alternative venue to the other fight. If we can do the fight in the UK, fantastic."

    I know sport is all about money but it will be disappointing if at least one of these fights isn’t in the UK so the fans who have been with these fighters all through their careers can’t get to see it. It’s not like they would be on bad coin doing it at Wembley.

    I saw fight 1 for the first time the other day. How rigged.
    This is the problem with scoring in boxing. Everything else was pretty much equal except for the 2 knocked downs - one which looked lethal. Those 2 knock downs should have determined the fight because everything else was equal. There are not enough 10/10 or 10/7 rounds given in boxing.
    Watching fight 2 in the next few days.
