Too soon for sure but nothing about TF should surprise any boxing fan. The mad fool may go and do it!! Good luck to him, his approach is a breath of fresh air.
A shot at DW with no big name beaten in comeback, ridiculous. I hooe TF is the big champion one day but I think DW will flatten him this soon.
The showboating needs to stop or he will get knocked sparko , over confidence is his worst enemy. He can beat Wilder but needs to understand that he hasn't done it yet. He needs to shut his old man up and stop listening to Saunders .
AJ has been ordered to defend his WBC belt against Povetkin, so after disposing of him he will still be able to fight Wilder/Fury without any distraction unless the IBF steps in. Can't see Fury keeping out Wilder for 12 rounds and don't think he has the punch to stop Wilder. Also Wilder is as big as Fury so won't be intimidated by size.
TF really needs to be fighting 5-6 more chumps better than Pianeta before getting in the ring with DW. FW obviously thinks he cannot keep TF clean/fit that long, which is a real shame as at the mo I can see DW swarming all over him and it only last 3-5 rounds.
1st don't get caught 2nd score points 3rd score more points than your opponent and win. How can anybody think getting jabbed in the face by an 18 ston gifted and trained pugilist isn't going to hurt. Jarring a brain inside a protective fluid inside a protective sack inside a protective skull is what knocks a person out not lamping it into a bloody swill.
Fury on Saturday, 394 jabs thrown, 7 hit the target. That isn't going to knock anyone out.Fury might beat AJ and Wilder on points but will do it by playing hide and seek. Rubbish to watch.
Fury is a Muppet, Wilder will win easily. Joshua v Wilder is the only decent fight out there.
Fury easily managed to avoid the Wlad bombs so there is no reason why he can't do the same against Wilder and use his better technique to win on points. He's never going to knock him out but seems able to maintain a good pace over 10 rounds even when not fully fit.
Well at least Fury is willing to actually fight Wilder. I can give him credit for that, win or lose. Feel bad for Whyte who i think could beat both of them. IT really frustrates me that AJ couldnt / wouldn't make the fight with Wilder, seems daft passing up a chance at winning all the belts.
@29 - John PetrieJohn, you say that Wilder will miss out on a huge payout against Joshua if Fury wins.But you are wrong. He will earn a fortune in a rematch.Then there's a possibility of a best-of-three mega match.And then the winner takes on Joshua, if he's still around, for countless millions.Fury should be fit by then.
Yes TF has those elusive 'boxing skills', using his genetic given size advantage expertly & without doubt Wilder will find him awkward but I suggest he trains by going on Strictly Come Dancing a best way to deal with TF's successful but utterly boring technique. TF's knock out claim is a joke he will be back foot, retreat and clinch all fight and if win's only though a series avoidance & tame jabs
Needs to get fully fit and if he can then Wilder will get a fright. I don't quite think he has that jab going as well as he can and that can sicken any opponent if it's working well. Wilder must be favourite on what we have seen so far, but Tyson still has time to get in to shape.
This shows how greedy Eddie Hearn is.
Wilder will be troubled by Fury's physical size. I can picture Wilder struggling to find the angle to deliver his wide looping shots. Fury will work hard to get in shape, plan to go 12 rounds and be as much as 3 stone heavier than Wilder. with all this in mind if Fury can make Wilder work at a faster pace than he desires then he'll be the new champ
