Who are you picking?
I see the situation as this - AJ is nowhere near as poor as his haters would have you believe and Fury is nowhere near the ATG his fans would have you believe since Wilder. Gun to head, I’m 55/45 favouring Tyson purely on his grit and the heart he has shown. AJ has shown it against Whyte and Klitschko but something in the manner of his defeat to Ruiz raises a big question mark with me.
Itll be chilly compared with the thrilla in manilla
I'm going AJ but only because I don't know how Fury will cope going in as favourite, many people think this is a forgone conclusion, Fury has never defended a belt and the amount of fat on him in those clips makes me suspicious of how focused he's been for this. @Heisenberg has already brilliantly explained his reason and I agree, AJ isn't anywhere near as bad as people make out and Fury isn't a Heavyweight version of Calzaghe, Duran and Mayweather Jnr all rolled into one.
I think the heat may play a major part IF it is outdoors but outside of that i think Joshua will knock Fury out. Cant help think that straight right is going to get the ball rolling, its a very fast powerful punch in his arsenal and Fury is open to it.
What time of day for uk approx?
There was a video of him and Sugar Hill messing about in Versace robes and shades in training the other day. I can understand Fury doing it but his trainer? Feels like they're believing their own hype a bit.
It will be primetime for us in the UK. The AJ v Ruiz II ringwalk was around 9pm.
Fury doesn`t fight like Ruiz, he relies on movement and quick reflexes and looked like crap on the heavybag.
2300hrs in Saudi so 2100hrs in the UK.
Horrible backwards country being rewarded for money again. Hearn bragging about how fast they can build stadiums. The working conditions these people will be under.... Probably slaves.
Hearn is a scum bag. End of. He’s bad enough having it in Saudi. The whole world is PC mad now but when people’s pockets are being lined it all goes out the window. He’s done well for himself but without his weird mug followers buying his unworthy PPV’s he’s be nowhere. He could have had some loyalty and offered them the chance to go to a venue in this country. Obviously he knows more British fans will buy PPV than Saudi ones so it’s thousands more £50s or whatever they reckon it’s gunna be.
This sport is ****, robberies none stop, people avoiding each other and then two British people fighting thousands of miles away in the name of fleecing fans.
Along with Heisenburg’s post, you’ve both nailed it. If there’s any division where you can’t rely on the “expected” outcome then this is the one. The Ruiz fight should raise questions of course but some of Fury’s could raise some aswell. The mentalities of both fighters will be crucial and I think will decide the result.
Weighing everything up, I think AJ is going to nail Fury.
I just get this feeling that AJ is going to produce his greatest performance to date.
I am a fan of both but I get the impression that Fury is taking this fight way too lightly than AJ is. Bad move.
Fury on his back reigniting shades of the other Tyson in Tokyo 1989. I couldn't believe that picture when I saw it, I was in genuine shock staring at it. The unbelievable had happened!!
I'm beginning to have the same thoughts. I did think this was 60/40 in Fury's favour but now think it'll be closer.
Now, it could all be tactics from him. Making it look like he's just living it up in the US when he's really training.. It's working on me though, so if that's what he's doing it's effective!
