    Losing a fight in your prime is different than not taking a fight seriously, entering injured, and losing as a result during your prime. If that is the case then he should delay the match. If not, he'll probably outbox Wilder. That's all that I'm saying.
    I do not like so much of what has led to this match from Fury. Total distractions, limping in public, injury rumors, etc. Not good.
    I look forward to (hopefully) a great clash between excellent boxer and devastating puncher.
    Admittedly, I do love the defensive style of the Gypsies, just like I loved watching Spadafora, Mayweather, Toney, Ottke, Sweet Pea, etc.

    Fury is as he always is. He's forever distracted, talking bull ****, fabricating problems, etc etc. That's who he is. It's a prime vs prime fight next Saturday.

    Don't think he's 'spent' and he also looked like dog **** in the two fights prior to his first bout with Wilder. Fury is a bit like BJS in that respect; raising or lowering his game to the level of the opponent faced. Must be a gypsy thing.

    I also have no problem with him being heavier and more aggressive. Of the three basic ranges, the one you need to avoid vs Wilder is mid-range - and close up is the best option of all, because Wilder's speed can quickly close the long range distance from 'safe' to 'dangerous' to 'KTFO'.

    So if Fury's plan is to aggressively close the distance and use his jab to move in rather than circle away, the extra weight starts to make sense. Yes.... I'm predicting 'jab and grab' to be the game plan, nullifying Wilder's power and leaning on and grappling to sap his strength.

    The risk is he gets timed coming in and, in that respect, his jab needs to be on-point. If it is, it's a good match-up to Wilder's.

    As is Fury's record with rematches compared to Wilder, who you could argue was being outboxed more conclusively by Ortiz in the second fight than their first.

    Having said all that, there is that right hand. It ruins game plans and boxers...

    I have a feeling that all big fights like this end up in some sort of bs decision, probably not true but it feels truthy to me. How bout "the cut" opens up in round 1 from an accidental head butt, Tyson tries for the KO two more rounds, doesn't get it, quits because of the cut before the fourth round and we have a no contest? Three different types of draws to choose from. Gamblers weigh in here please - is a draw a draw a draw when betting or do you have to specify unanimous / majority / split draw? I think you will see Fury using his extra 30 or 40 lbs to lay all over Wilder and tire him out and going for the knockout from about round ten on....IF it lasts that long. I think Wilder has a good chance.

    Despite all this nonsense we're hearing about Fury focusing on the KO and punching power, I'd still say it's got to be Fury UD or Wilder KO.

    So then which is it? Wilder KO or Fury UD?

    I actually see Wilder improving more than Fury. Probably have to go with a Wilder KO.

    Wilder within 8/9.

    He’s already found him twice, Tyson is declining, and Wilder doesn’t have to fear anything coming back.

    Wallin took whatever was left of Tyson’s soul.

    DQ win for Deontay. Fury will get so desperate and push the referee in front of one of those devastating windmills. Like a human shield!

    Maybe, or should i say more than likely!!

    I just have a hunch that Fury is going to put in a career defining performance and shock everybody...
