    Once a jacker, always a jacker, 8 thought he'd try hang in there because the energy Ruiz was expending, his obesity damaged circulatory system was surely mere minutes from a heart valve exploding

    You clearly said you were waiting for him to fight Ustinov to prove he isn’t scared of him. Ridiculous.

    Hey, hey, calm down. I didn't mean I'm literally waiting, of course it will never happen. I never said or implied that Fury was scared of him. Unsure of him, at the time, yes definitely. What I'm saying is that he talked all that and didn't back it up, he pulled out and the fight never happened.

    His uncle died shortly before the fight.

    He was taken into hospital shortly before the fight, it was months later that he passed. Whilst it's of course a decent enough reason to pull out I can see why some people might think that Fury wasn't right for the fight in the first place and this just pushed him too far away from being ready, Ustinov back then was a tough customer.

    The thing that made it look bad was at the weigh in Tyson Fury was saying (complaining) "they're trying to stitch me up" "he's had a full camp" ..... then a few hours later he pulls out.

    They probably should have rejected Ustinov as a late replacement for Chisora anyway, straight away. No reasonable fan would have had much of an issue with that.
