    The extra 20 Lbs looks to favor Wilder at 6'7 , hes ripped not sure how the extra 20+ lbs fits on Fury 6"9- When the shirt come off and round 1 starts we will have a better idea but never know what's a mind game with Fury
    he's crazy but far from stupid - good promoter - He may try and show his strength inside but Wilder is confident of his power - this may turn out to be a crazy evening 2/22/2020

    It has that feeling this one doesn't it. Any god damn thing could happen. Fury has a fair gut on him. If he's not confident of his cut holding up he could well go hard early. Nothing can be discounted. I do wish however that Fury was coming in with less cloud hanging over him.

    It's certainly a plausible scenario. Fury is wildly unpredictable. If it wasn't Fury i'd be counting him out.

    Fury is a problem historically speaking.

    Why hasn't Fury-Joshua happened yet?! It's been nearly 30 minutes now! Come on Eddie Hearn - pull yer finger out!

    Fury looked great - the extra 20 lbs was muscle and his fight plan perfect- like I said he may be CRAZY but he is far from stupid -

    Immense credit to Fury. He's big, smart and quite talented particularly for his size. In the wash Wilder is pretty much what many Classicists believed he was. Not to take credit from Fury, he fought a flawless fight tonight and exposed him as a one trick pony with frailties.

    Glad to see that the people in this section respect Fury and his accomplishments. He'll be a top 10 ATG heavyweight before it's all said and done.

    With the right fights there a fair chance of that. He ended Wlad's reign as well and came back from a lot.

    Fury was great, but he was not even 20 lbs. heavier than their first fight-& some certainly not all of that was muscle.
    Maybe it was close to 10 lbs. max.
    Still he was stronger & his strategiy superbly executed.
    Focusing more on aggression & counters with the smothering.

    Glad to eat humble pie.

    I still do not know if Fury is that good, or Wilder really is as bad as I thought he was a few years back. I guess it is somewhere in the middle.

    But to be fair Wilder took his beating as is traditionally expected in boxing without quitting. But the ref and the corner perhaps could have saved him a bit earlier.

    Fury amazes me. I remember the first fight with domestic level journeyman John McDermott, he was lucky to win a fight against a fighter who struggled to win an English title. From that moment on I have always been skeptical, criticising his determination and his conditioning, which at times even he has to still admit was appalling.

    But the fight I talk of was a decade ago and for the third time* in four years, he has beaten who I thought was the best fighter in the division. So Fury for what is worth, has won me over. But as usual I was very late to the party!


    *Although not the worse robbery, I suspect most people think Fury deserved the decision in Fury/WilderI.

    I think it was Fury was good, and had a plan that worked very well.
