By whoops a daisy, do you mean won the heavyweight championship of the world???

Yes.

If he is to have the vagueist hope of ever beating a Klitschko he should be ushing himself onto bigger challenges.

I'd put him in with euro champ pulev next, now that fury has lost the pounds, and is putting some nice combos together I reckon he can beat most out there barring the klits, haye and price as I feel it'll be the tall men who fury will struggle with.

McDermott is probably the best fighter that Price has been in with.... you can't bash Fury for fighting poor opposition and then say ''Price has fought.....'' because he simply hasn't.

The Rogan fight was frustrating, no need for it, Rogie was about 100 years old and had back to back KO losses against ***ton, who's not a championship class fighter.

They could have done better than Maddalone last night I'm sure, the problem in the division is that there are stacks of fighters who seemingly don't want to fight anyone at all, and are simply feasting on used up bums waiting for the Klits to retire and hoping to bag a vacant title.

Any of these would be acceptable for next time....

Chagaev
Grant
Banks
Ustinov
Stiverne

It's not going to be Price I'm afraid, and Mick isn't going to stump up over a million dollars (which is what he'll need) to get Adamek over here.

Could always stick him in with Povetkin

Fury would rape Audley. They should do it: firstly, because it could get a good audience for Channel 5, and secondly, because Fury will get credit not so much for beating Audley, but get the credit for sending him into retirement finally.

Kevin Johnson apparently wants the fight and would be OK.

Maybe they could get Adamek done if they had the backing of Showtime? I don't know if that's realistic at this stage, but Fury is pretty much always entertaining so I don't see why American TV shouldn't back him.

As for any of the good Euro fighters, I doubt they would come to England. Unless Fury gets made mandatory...

Fury is still wank,fighting bums will not improve him.he needs a tough challenge,he can fight bums for almost ten years if he wins a world title(vitali has done)

Fury bashing is similar to Balotelli bashing in some respects, people look & see a big dopey lump & forget that they're relative babies within the sport.

A 24 year old Heavyweight is allowed a few tomato cans. Rogan & Chisora are still decent names to have on the record.

How would Audley Harrison be a step up ?

Harrison is on the same level as Martin Rogan, at best.

Sprott is a professional loser these days.

If he was to be the opponent there'd have to be a ''maximum weight'' clause in his contract, don't want him rocking up at over 250lbs and then giving a Clottey-esque performance.

Harrison.... meh. He's a good salesman but a crap fighter, Fury would frighten him to death. It's a good job that Gypsy John is banged up because one shred of eye contact between him and Aud.... he'd be back on the plane to the States in about 7 seconds.

He may as well fight the winner of Chisora Haye next. It's a fight Fury can win and he will be up against a genuine top 10 type. Needless to say it's a big fight for casuals too.
