Default IBF orders Fury Cunnigham winner to fight Pulev for the mando position

No way can I see Hennesy let Fury anywhere near Pulev. With the IBF doing the business here I don't want to hear Fury crying again about not being able to face a top fighter.

Pulev would destroy Fury, he should go wbc route.

Fury should stick to the WBC route if he won't fight Price.

Vitali will vacate the title soon enough and Fury can get himself into a mandatory position for that belt. Fight Cunningham and then a WBC final elimnator, forget Pulev and the IBF title for now. Stick to the road he's already on, that would be the sensible thing to do. As we all know though, Fury most of the time doesn't do sensible.

That's Fury's chance to get an eliminator, but will he take a risky fight in order to get his mandatory shot without slave contracts? Or will he handpick opponents and run his mouth how the entire HW division is rigged against him?

The IBF making these great ideas for eliminators will no doubt have no clout to force the fighters to all do it if they don't want to and still get a shot eventually anyway.

If the winner of cunningham/fury/pulev is up for mando then what is happening with Adamek? surely he is mandatory at the moment? Plus isnt adamek fighting pulev soon?

Fury has always stated that he wants to go down the WBC route.

but with Klitschko looking on the verge of retirement, and knowing that his chin is not as strong as people are suggesting, he won't take the fight and Fury knows Quitali won't take the fight.

Fury won't take a fight with Pulev, too risky. Plus Fury has already said he won't fight a Klitschko and that he'll make his own destiny or something along those lines, basically meaning he will go the WBC route.

Fury would beat Pulev but this won't happen. He'll go for the WBC belt, which is much easier.

So what happens if Vitali decides to fight Haye and Haye wins? Does the entire HW division just take a year off ?

None of them want to fight Wlad as it is, they can't ALL chase the WBC route without there being a lot of congestion and toe treading....

So basically after all of the mouthing off, Fury will again avoid the harder fighter, that doesn't sound like the best on the Planet to me. He's always mouthing off he is but but his actions suggest otherwise, he knows he's a fraud.

Who do you mean by harder fighter? Price being tougher than Pulev? Wouldn't count on that mate.
USS followed by Pulev is two shit hot fights for Fury right there,beats the pair of em he has every right to sound off.
