    Be surprised if it went 6 minutes never mind 6 rounds.

    It's Curriculum Vitae, or C.V. for brevity's sake on these shores old chap.

    To 'resume' is to recommence an activity one has temporarily halted.

    If you are going to use the term, then please spell it as so;

    'Résumé'.

    Whenever the word 'resume' is used, I think of it in the following context;

    "Tyson Fury was temporarily laid on the canvas by a ferocious punch, but quickly got up and resumed where he had left off before the incident."

    Or;

    "Anthony Joshua was knocked to the canvas four times by a small, obese brute, yet ultimately failed to resume the contest."

    It's hard to imagine Skysports coming up with this headline on their website. A Frank Warren quote saying AJ should step aside.

    Sorry but, the 238lb Wilder is blowing out his arse after 2 rounds at which point Whyte and AJ have plenty of opportunity to put Wilders lights out. I would put Wilder vs Whyte or AJ at around 50/50, especially if AJ was to get his mojo back by beating Usyk or similar (tough ask I know) as I feel that Wilder is damaged goods now after two pretty devastating beat downs.

    Sky boxing coverage/analysis already much better without Hearn pulling the strings. Thank God for that.

    Whyte's got far less than 50% chance v any kind of decent version Wilder.

    Whyte has been sparked out by Povetkin. Decked by almost every top 10 opponent he faced. Parker, Rivas. Joshua brutalized him.
    He is easier to hit than Ortiz, for example.
    Wilder would find his noggin with the right hand and leave him in tatters.

    True enough, there is a chance Wilder is damaged to the point of being shot now, but if he has anything left, Whyte would stand little chance.

    I would say Usyk or going on to have a good body of work.

    The reality is that due to boxing politics, there is every possibility that the two don't fight. But If Fury adds Whyte, Joshua, Ruiz, and a couple of other names to the resume, it is hard to argue that he is not at least equal to the guys like Patterson, Liston, Bowe, etc.

    Why does Fury in any way have to beat whyte or ruiz and a couple of other names??

    Like who for instance? Rivas? Chisora again? for **** sake he is levels.abive whyte and ruiz and everybody else apart from usyk, why in your eyes does he have to beat these useless lumps???? Who is going to look back in years to come and think ruiz and whyte were good fighters??? Nobody.

    Once he beats usyk there is Nobody left to beat out of the current crop

    "Once Mike Tyson beats Spinks there's nobody left to challenge him"

    I hate fans with that kind of mentality. Instead of steering Fury away from clearing of the division, you should want him to beat all the top guys, because upsets happen more often than you think.

    I'm sorry but there is a huge difference between spinks and whyte!!!!

    I am not saying he shouldn't carry on fighting the best but why is whyte mentioned in the world's best, he had 2 close fights against euro level chisora, one which he lost , and has been knocked out twice, went life and death with Parker and has looked shocking in so many fights.

    My post is about how shite whyte is, not how Fury doesn't have any competition . However as I stated if Fury carries on boxing for the next 18 months apart from usyk I dont think any other fights are in any way 50/50 .

    Obviously Fury doesn't need Whyte, but I'd like to see it, I'd also like to see Fury vs Hrgovic, Fury vs Usyk, Fury vs Joshua, Fury vs Sanchez. Fury may be the significant favorite in all of these fights but one punch changes everything
