But he proved his chin and most importantly, his heart. He was ****ed, no stamina whatsoever, but he gritte his teeth even though he lacked the reflexes to step out of the way.

He has the size and natural toughness, everything else can be worked on. He isn't looking to be a particularly hard puncher, but that isn't the be and end all.I agree that he talks a lot of shit, but as long as we're not GENUINELY expecting him to be fighting for World titles as quick as he says, then how can we give him stick?

He's stepped it up quicker than say, Ajose

Fury isn't a Tyson-esque sensation. But to slag him off because he isn't living up to his name is f'n ridiculous. Coming from a fellow pro as well (not me, but the OP), I find that harsh to be honest.
to be fair he was entitled to criticisem on the form of his last 3 fights, but like i said he just wouldent listen, john mcdermott is a good fighter but he wont think he,s in with the same man this time.

Some people know shit about boxing. First Tyson definately needs to work on his fitness and technique, no doubt. He needs to stop thinking he is a flyweight and work out how to make his size count.

But...there are some people who have never stepped into a ring for even one round of sparring and think they know what boxing is about. Tyson has been a pro for just over one year...ONE YEAR...and is 21 years old. Personally I think what he has done in that year is impressive.

Sure he runs his mouth and looks a bit stupid because he is putting on a bullshit act, but if people got in the ring and sparred a few rounds they would understand why...it takes balls to get in the ring, bad mouthing someone at the beginning of their career just makes you look like a twat.

Hopefully McDermott knocks him out this time, so they can't rob him of the decision.

I think people are just calling a spade a spade. He ain't much good. Yes he's young and can refine things but you can't make a silk purse out of cow dung. He's not very co-ordinated, is he?

I disagree, I think for a 6'9" bloke he moves pretty well. He puts some nice combinations together and despite what the naysayers say his conditioning ain't all that bad.

Truth is it's all relative. Fury isn't shit. There's plenty worse heavyweights out there, and shit fighters don't go in with 35 fight veteran domestic contenders in their 9th fight. Fair enough, he's most likely not going to dominate the division, but how many do?

It's unlikely he'll dominate the division domestically....

Who's your pick to dominate the domestic heavyweight scene over the next 5-10 years?

Well, no. Not really.

EDIT: Actually, yeah, he has. Also.....6'7 and 216lbs?! Damn the guy is thin.

That's Wilder, absolutely not Fury.

Yep.

Everyone seems to be coming in their pants over Wilder. Yet at the same stage of their careers Wilder has yet to fight anyone with a winning record. In fact, without looking at Boxrec I think he's only had one opponent with more then 5 fights.

And people are moaning Fury ain't stepping up.

I can't wait for this guy to get his ass handed to him again. McDermott was the clear winner last time and O'Conner should be ****ing shot for his scoring of that fight, npot to mention other notable **** ups.

He rubs me up the wrong way, Fury and I can't see him getting passed British level. Stick him in with Chisora and let the insults fly.

He's definitely not useless he's got a good array of shots and fast hands, although he doesn't seem to punch his weight but if he's been injured that might be why.
