A fan base controversy has come about in the world of boxing as some fans are upset over the upcoming, Wilder vs Fury 3 boxing match. It’s no secret that Mayweather-Pacquiao was a great fight, but the events in Nevada have thrown some fans off.
“This will be the death of the street fighter,” said Carl DeFede of the May-or-June showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. DeFede works in security and supports the WBO welterweight champion Mayweather. However, he is upset that Pacquiao won the fight by a narrow margin and feels that it should have been Mayweather.
He believes Pacquiao will not be able to hold his ground against Mayweather, which would lead to a street fighter losing a close fight. Although he realizes that Pacquiao has lost in his previous fights, DeFede is concerned with how well Mayweather will do. The promoter and trainer of Wilder vs Fury 3 agree that it should have been Mayweather, but feels that the money behind the two boxers was too much to let this one go.
David Haye believes that if the WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko was in the match, he would have lost to Tyson Fury. Haye is upset that Klitschko is not in the fight. He believes Klitschko should have made his presence known because he is the best heavyweight champion in the world.
Wilder vs Fury have a lot of fans that are upset over what they feel to be disrespectful by the promoters. Haye and DeFede are not boxers that have made their name on fighting for the bad guys. They both fight for the people and in the process make their opponents look bad.
Why Wilder vs Fury 3 will be entertaining is unknown. Fans want to see street fighters fight on TV. It’s great that more people can watch these types of fights on TV, but the lack of any true love for the fighters may turn off a portion of the audience.
Whether or not these fights were on TV is not the question that needs to be answered; it’s the fact that no one is truly in a real fight. The best fights are between boxers that walk into the ring and fight, not people that have been put together on a stage. These two are just arguing for the title and having a big show in Vegas so they can ride it out until the end of time.
A wild Wilder vs Fury 3 would be one of the funniest fights in recent history. Fans would be happy to see some street fighting, but they will be wanting to see the real match that they have waited years for. The upcoming championship bout in Las Vegas will be a must see television event that people will debate for years to come.
