    Ilunga Makabu showed shaky performance against Kudryasov. Think he will be ko'd against better fighter in coming fights.

    So, from my understanding Tyson Fury have three promoters. He is promoted by Mick Hennesy, Arum and Frank Warren. This is hilarious if you ask me. He is minimazing his income by having deals with three promoters, terrible terrible decision. Even if he have two promoters it's terrible choice because he is denying himself higher income.

    What makes you think hes promoted by Maloney? Lol Maloney is now living as a woman and is not involved in boxing anymore.

    You might be getting him mixed up with Hennessy. Its just Warren and Arum atm for Fury I think.

    I saw Guido Vinello on the undercard of Fury vs Schwartz. The Italian moves well, can box and has some power. You felt sorry for his limited but durable opponent. While defense is not Vinello's thing, he has time to improve. He's a skilled super heavy with fast hands. How well he takes a punch and learns defense will define how far he can go, but he has the potential to go far and is more skilled already than some heavyweights in the top ten,

    Put it to you this way, I'd pick him to stop Schwartz too, even fi he's only 4-0

    You mean Mick Hennessy, not Dan Maloney. Otherwise, I agree.

    His defense is good enough for him to become a champion. His power will give him edge in future fights as well.

    I think his ability to take a punch is equally important and its here where I question him. Vinello is an offensive minded fighter. As such he will need defense and the ability to take it. He reminds me a bit of Corrie Sanders, except his doesn't have top end hand speed or power as Sanders had. It's a notch or two below that, but clearly good enough to take him far.

    Just a hunch, he'll be upset before getting a title shot. He's also the type that upset a greater opponent. A fun guy to watch.
