    @kiwiinmelb the thing with Tyson is that he fought a Klitschko in early decline. He was already fairly robotic and not really being challenged to that point add in the age factor and Fury's accomplishment wasn't that awe inspiring, an upset none the less. We will see how good Fury really is with someone trying to take his head off his shoulders rather than sit behind a jab.

    Yeah true but he was more convincing in beating him than joshua was ,and Joshua fought Klitschko further in decline , that fight couldve gone either way



  • I've bought it. Can't wait for it, haven't been this excited for a fight in ages. Fury by UD I feel. He's been targetting Wilder since beating Klitschko even when he was going through his struggles and I feel he'll be too smart for Wilder. Wilder's been outboxed by far worse fighters before finding the KO punch (Szpilka, Wachington come to mind) and I see no reason why Fury can't do the same and he's a few leagues above those two mentioned.



  • Yeah I'd agree with that. For all of wilder's power he hasn't fought anyone near the level of an aged klitschko. I'm just assuming Tyson has a mean chin as he's a mad fucking gypsy.



  • Would love to see Fury win.

    Everything is pointing to a DW knock-out, but if Fury can box from distance he can bamboozle DW.



  • Wilder is hopeless, just a brawler with no technique, has no business holding a belt at all. Think Fury wins it by the length of the straight.



  • @tewaio see I thought that about a year ago and then I saw him ko Ortiz after being basically out on his feet. Ortiz was legit competiton for anyone, yes maybe a year past his best but he was dangerous. Wilder saw him off.

    Wilder is not a boxers arsehole but he hits like a mule kicks and hes got heart. Thats a dangerous combo. Id much prefer Fury box his way to the title but I do not think he hits as hard as Ortiz and Wilder is very fit. Just cant see Fury winning.



  • Dont underestimate power , the other thing that makes him dangerous , those weird looking punches are coming in from weird angles that fighters arent used to , its the unorthodox that makes him hard to plan for

    And that big right hand , he can throw from a long way back , closes the gap with lightning speed , you think he is on the outside and cant get you , then bang .

    Despite his very unusual non copybook style , he is very fit and athletic



  • Wilders jab is really underrated, early in the Ortiz fight he used it to good effect.. he usually starts throwing the wild haymakers when he’s hurt someone and is looking to finish them off.



  • For me Wilder wins this in the first 3 rounds. Sure hes not the better boxer but hes an unpredictable animal and his style will make this more of a fight than a boxing match. As mentioned earlier in this thread, his angles are weird.

    This fight is just so intriuging in that we have Wilder with his power and pretty average technical boxing ability vs a much more skilled but perculiar styled boxer in Fury. Its gonna be interesting that is for sure!

    If it doesnt pan out like above then Fury is gonna have to keep Wilder at a distance and fustrate the hell out of him. But I'm really not sure if Fury will have the fitness though to take the fight deep enough to win.



  • @jk that’s what makes it interesting for me ,

    2 weird cats that are not your average run of the mill fighters ,

    Fury with his peek a boo style , an English heavyweight boxing like an American black welterweight .......... where the hell did that come from 🙂

    And wilder is wilder , probably seen nothing like him before , he is so different





  • Harder puncher than Tua @raznomore ? For all Tuas faults hitting like a sledgehammer wasn't one of them



  • Joshua should be cheering for Fury for once, as he has made every excuse to not fight Wilder in the US. He obviously would prefer a unification fight in the UK.



  • @mn5 I think yeah, he might actually hit harder. It's a close call.



  • Interested by the comments made by Wilder regarding "400 years... " etc. Hes making it about race and the US media is feeding into it.

    Yeah hard to measure that sort of stuff , they hit differently , Tua had very heavy hands ,

    Like getting hit with a Besser block from closer range ,

    Wilder is like hitting you with a house brick from further back at higher speed .

    both of those sound awful to be honest.

    You got to wonder how much longer Mundine can milk that villan role and keep getting paydays out of it , at 44 I can’t believe it’s happening again .

    and yet, i bet there are a few turning in tonight simply to watch Horn punch him in the head. Plays it to perfection, master promoter.
