Age isn't important, it's experience.

Also Froch wasn't even a pro at Fury's age so i'm not sure what that's got to do with anything. But while we're at it, Brian Magee was Froch's 19th fight

Brian Magee was like fighting Chisora at that time.
Froch had been a pro for 7 years at that time. Fury has been a pro for only 4 years.

He is only a couple of years older than Alvarez.

Alvarez is considered one of the big names and the big hopes for world boxing.

Furys opponents arent really that much worse than his opponents and he is a world champ. They are not the same level of opponents but they arent that far behind.

Just wanted to through that out there.

Alvarez's opposition has been abysmal.

Kingpin should be getable and would be another huge step up for Fury too.

I thought Dimitrenko retired? Would be a good choice if possible though, a similarly sized super heavy. Ustinov another maybe?

Someone said on another thread that Perez - Chagaev is off, one of those would be good if so! Tor Hammer, Kingpin, Dimitrenko, all should be a step up and so acceptable for me. Or maybe Thompson or Charr; recent Klitchsko opponents.

It's at a stage where if they want more 'learning' fights for him, which is understadable as he's still young, then it should be on the undercard of a solid Degale headlined show or something.

Tor Hamer was approached and declined.

For all the hate against Fury, most other prospects are worried against facing him.

Chagaev is a massive case in point for the fear/respect for Fury, he said that he needed a lot more time to be ready to face Fury ... but then accepted Perez. Clearly signifying which of the two he personally thinks is the more winnable contest.

Dimitrenko hasn't retired.

Quote:
He trains back in his old gym in the Walddörferstraße. With a coach he admired at the same place ten years ago already: Alexander "Sascha" Dimitrenko (30) in front of the comeback - with U.S. trainer Tommy Brooks (5.
Brooks coached the greats of the guild: For Evander Holyfield , he designed the battle plan to defeat Mike Tyson. Subsequently, he also coached Tyson. In 2002, he lectures with universe, trained there the Klitschkos.
At the same place, he wants to "Sascha" Dimitrenko new life. Brooks: "Give us three or four months. Then we have a new Alexander the Great. A tough, dangerous Heavyweight Fighter. "
Dimitrenko in May had his career-low. As was the 2.01-meter giant in the European Championship Fight against Pulev kneeling count out in the ring. There were reasons, never talked about the Dimitrenko: lack of preparation, the death of the grandmother who had "Sascha" reared in the Crimea.
Now he says: "I want to prove something, especially me. With such a defeat, I can not give up. I know I still have a lot of it. Tommy Brooks has already improved some things to me. "
The project "Dimitrenko" - everything is done in-house. He has also a sponsor of Hamburg used clothing recycler Wenkhaus. Fits: From Old to New - Mr. Brooks, you pick!

we have to be realistic though

Chagaev and Boytsov both turned down fights with Fury, it's unlikely that any top guy is going to get off the couch, 5 weeks before christmas, to get in the gym and prepare to fight Fury in less than 3 weeks

won't happen
