    Ge has 4 brothers. The three younger ones Shane, Hughie and Tommy and an older brother John that seems to stay out of the public eye.

    Didn’t notice the split lip?

    Quite a cringe press conference.

    Hughie is his cousin isn't he? Didn't think he had a brother called Hughie also.

    This is probably clutching at straws a bit, but did anyone notice the strength difference with the shoves? Wilder gave Fury a proper push and Fury went back a few steps...Fury pushes him back and Wilder flies back. This doesn’t mean one’s gonna beat the other, but there’s a few stone difference between the two that was exemplified at that (garbage) presser.

    Yes he has a brother called Hughie too. Tyson himself has 2 or 3 sons called Prince. Must be a ball ache when you shout wanting a specific one.

    Yeah, I noticed that as well. Made me think of Carl Froch and Groves with the infamous “we can all have a pull about”.

    Turned this off when the host made reference to Fury making the 6th defence of the lineal title. Please **** off with this lineal crap and just start the new lineal reign from Saturday night. It embarrassing. The last one ended with retirement, PED suspensions and cocaine induced inactivity. It did not then continue after three years with defences against Seferi, Pianetta, Wilder, Schwartz and Wallin.

    I actually thought the same thing. Even though you wouldn’t class Tyson as a puncher he is 18 1/2 stone. No one that big has pillow fists. Thing that gets overlooked in the first first is how many times Tyson shook Wilder with his own straight right

    Yep, I like Fury but this is lineal champ nonsense is just that - nonsense. He relinquished the lineal title the day he got busted for PED's. Since then you could possibly make a case Wlad should have given the title back after that and still been lineal before losing to AJ or perhaps it's still vacant and we won't have a lineal champ until the winner of Fury-Wilder fights AJ (not holding my breath) but wherever you stand Tyson Fury IS NOT the lineal HW champ and hasn't been since 2016.

    Fury's PED debacle occured before he beat Wlad. He pissed clean for Wlad and has pissed clean since.

    Following the historical formula, I’m more than happy for this fight to be recognised as the beginning of a new lineal reign. I’m just dead against the way Fury’s been dining out on it in a way NEVER seen before in the history of boxing. This Saturday (hopefully) brings some clarity to the heavyweight scene.

    It's a promotional tool they use due to the fact he has no belts but never lost any in the ring. I don't understand why it bothers so many people considering A.) No one else had a claim to it since, B.) He fought Wilder already in his comeback, C.) Fury has remained undefeated and D.) Here we are with the no.1 and no.2 in the division fighting again.
