Here's a headline you rarely see on a #boxing press release: "OSullivan: Eubanks dad chose eating animal genitals over his son" OK then.

Dan Rafael @danrafaelespn

If you're Glazkov why fight Wilder for his belt when you can: a) get mandatory vs Fury (& 25% of $) or b) face lesser foe for vacant belt?

Dan Rafael @danrafaelespn

Regarding Fury being ordered to face Glazkov, Fury was Wlad's WBO/WBA mandatory. IBF is next up in rotation of the unified title & it's due.

Dan Rafael @danrafaelespn

So it seems to me we'll see what often happens when unified titles change hands: Belts will become vacant while Fury goes about his biz.

Dan Rafael @danrafaelespn

I don't see Fury fighting Glazkov next under almost any circumstance. No money in that fight & has rematch likely with Wladimir. (more)

Dan Rafael @danrafaelespn

Per the IBF, it has ordered Fury's mandatory against Glazkov. They have 30 days to make a deal or it goes to purse bid. (more) #boxing

Man, my office is a freaking mess. I got press kits and programs and assorted #boxing stuff everywhere & can't find what I'm looking for!
