Plus bagsful extra cash for passage for his midwinter journey to Cardiff’s roofed-in Millennium Stadium. Something like £50million, with as much as double that quantity to comply with if he wins that one.

One of Fury or Joshua stands to money in twice over by occurring to confront Usyk. So can we all. Albeit at value relatively than reward to these buying tickets or pay-per-view-TV subscriptions. I thank the lords of Fleet Street for my ringside seats.

In widespread with everybody else I can be relieved in addition to gratified to see them truly struggle after all of the years of tap-dancing.

Of course there are some extra heavy-footed negotiations forward. But the desk has been largely cleared by Usyk’s second successive victory over AJ.
