Fury is far too big for Wilder. Far too big. 

Wilder is a big guy by most standards but when your opponent is 6’9” and 20st it’s too much of a difference. Especially if you’re not a clever or technical boxer.

Let’s be honest - Joshua has no chance against Fury if it ever happens. 
 

No chance.

Usyk can’t beat him either. Fury just smothers him. Unlike Joshua fury knows how to use his size.

Fury will beat AJ and after Whyte The Usyk in America and then retire and go into Wrestling.

If there were any doubt about Fury being up there with the best he dispelled that tonight. He has got everything in his locker and I can’t think of any others heavyweight who would get of the canvas twice and beat Wilder

Incredible historical fight. Wilder has some amount of heart. 
 

That right hand that dropped him was as clean as they come. Thought he was finished when he went down the 2nd time. 
 

Fury for me is up there with the all time greats but wins over AJ and Usyk would seal the deal.

The ref knew Wilder was struggling.Asked the doc in twice.

I was getting worried for Wilder the eyes were gone in the last 5 rounds.

Fury brilliant again.Another brilliant fight,

Glad I got up for that.

 

Cracking fight. Excellent.

 

If Wilder is respectful in the coming days he should bow out with his head held very high. Gutsy stuff from him, I hope he doesn't ruin it with more excuses.

 

Fury, totally outboxed Wilder from round 2 really, aside from the big hits that put him down. Must be incredibly disarming to be a man with one shot that you've built a career off and see it land multiple times but have your opponent just get back up. Also, what a great laugh Tyson is when he speaks. Deserves all his success.

That was a sensational fight but I get the feeling Fury was not 100%. Not in as good shape or sharp as the second fight, covid or just taking Wilder too lightly who knows.

Could also be a case of Wilder being better prepared. Fury rushed him from the first bell in the second fight and Wilder didn't have an answer. Wilder has had a lot of time to think about what went wrong in that fight.

Wilder improved no doubt. If he learnt the sport at the same age as fury he would have been an incredible boxer IMO. As it is just another decent athlete with an unbelievable right hand. 
 

Fury dealt with wilder and took his best shots over three fights. AJ would have crumbled in the 4th after being down twice. 
 

Was a brilliant boxing match and just goes to show when the best fight the best the entertainment and value of the sport rockets. Joshua v Usyk and fury v wilder trilogy - great stuff. Heavyweight boxing at its finest IMO. 
 

Hopefully more to come.

Also agree that fury was clearly not 100%. Only had about 6-8 weeks of a broken training camp due to issues.

I never got up for fight, now regretting that. Just about to watch replay. 
 

I went on twitter to see ko and highlights. That’s was a mistake what a cesspool it is. I thought I was looking at boxing but stumbled on a bunch of racist shit towards Fury.

I’m not sure, camp wasn’t perfect but think a big part of the difference in him is the kronk style he’s adopted. Completely different fighter from his previous quick feet slick boxing but the change was all about setting himself in position with feet planted to deliver that finish. Doing that to your style, makes you an easier target to hit so he's took more shots last night.
 

Plus he’s said he rolled his ankle in round 2 when he put wilder down so wasn’t moving freely due to that. These last 2 performances with sugarhill he has been a different fighter. He fights like a bear now but he can still slip most of the big shots. It’s amazing to watch him evolve into this different animal, he’s taking more risks with less emphasis on avoiding being hit. That’s great for the boxing fans because he is still vulnerable to the knockout from any fighter in the division, so the fight is always worth watching. Someone’s getting knocked out. You don’t watch the heavyweights for quick slick boxing,  you watch for wars like that. Loved it

Fury won’t get hit any harder than wilder has. He has immense power of recovery. That should send shivers down the spines of Dillian Whyte and Joshua. Usyk is a different animal altogether he will try and outbox fury. I hope we see him fight all three of the above before he retires. Fury is beatable but it will take a monumental effort for it to happen.

Whyte has got a tough fight against a 6 ft 6 southpaw Wallin to get through first then he’ll be the mandatory. A lot of pundits have wallin favourite for that one.

 

As for Joshua he will get schooled again by Usyk tbh

Aii. Wallin gave fury a horrific time last time. Think this version of fury would smash him however.

That was Wilder as good as he could be v an under par rusty Tyson Fury and he still got leathered. I don't think anyone can beat Fury, he's massive, strong, powerful, top boxing

I. Q., quick and he's naturally fit despite having the body of a man that lives off beer and pies. He's a great character and champion.

There were eras where Fury would have won little or nothing but to give him his due, he’s built this career from next to nothing and he’s miles out in front. Joshua was manufactured to have a career as good but he’ll be remembered like an over hyped Amir Khan. He and his camp deluded themselves into thinking he’s unstoppable whereas one more defeat and he’s completely done

Retire is he's got any sense. He's made his money and has a partner and kid(s). Getting smacked in the head like that is going to have a negative effect on his post-boxing life.

Whilst, I agree with your. 
 

Boxers and fighters in general, have a very different view of risk and they have a lot of self worth tied up in being the ‘baddest man’ on planet. 
 

i hope he retires and enjoys life. Alas I suspect he continues on as it’s a gravy train for those close to him

Past boxers have a long and sad history of losing everything. I watched a Roberto Duran documentary and Iran Barkley was on it and I googled him to see how the rest of his career had gone. Bearing in mind he was a 3 time world champion at 3 different weights and beat Tommy Hearns twice he ended up homeless and living off assistance. Also the sad story of taking any fights for money near the end of his career and blemishing his record. He lost his last six fights which were over a span of only 8 months. A lot of these guys aren't the brightest and live in a world full of sharks.

I know there's plenty who'd pay but I wouldn't fancy getting punched in the face for a living

I watched a programme with Nigel Benn and basically he said a lot about what goes on.  When Benn was initially undefeated and flying he attracted a crowd of hangers on and was also introduced to some really dodgy characters no doubt from organised crime.  Once he lost his first fight these hangers on disappeared and moved onto the next target.

 

I guess it must be hard for some of these boxers to get themselves away from this.

Leon Edwards v Jorge Masdival has reportedly been agreed for end of year. 
 

Rhey famously started throwing hands back stage after a card. 
 

Think edwards gets a UD victory and that probably gets him a title bout. A good fight, albeit feel a bit for edwards wtf he need to go for title shot.

I think we will. 6 month UFC suspension but I can definitely see him fighting at heavyweight for the title before he retires. It’s debatable of course but for me he’s the best UFC fighter to grace the company.
