    If a guy like Wilder is in top 3, 40 year old Vetkin and Pulev, and 55 year old Ortiz are in top 10 it says a lot.
    Even Chisora, who got dominated by 41 year old 1 handed Vitaly 10 years ago, still knocking guys out.

    How could anyone watch that and not gain respect for Fury?

    The "MORE" in your sentence is redundant. If you gain something, you are automatically getting more of it.

    What I liked about his performance was that, for a change he didn't dull down to his opponents level. Usually if he's in with a far inferior boxer he fights down to their level. However he fought to his level which was so many levels above the bum killer thus we ended up with a mismatch.

    Absolutely anybody who didn’t just isn’t sensible. Fury was great and deserves full credit.

    Wilder was Wilder. Fury was a bit more aggressive. To me Fury's power punching could be a bit more crisp and accurate, but he has good enough boxing ability to make Wilder look a couple levels below him.

    Good argument. Because one guy has a weak resume from not fighting the top fighters in the division it's weak.

    Wilder always looked a little limited, but his power was so great.. Fury deserves respect

    I already had respect for Fury. The first fight was 10 rounds to 2 Fury, the rematch, a knockout!!!!!!!

    I respect that he chose to walk to and through Wilder instead of trying to go safety first and box again and let the judges have a say.

    So I suppose in the regard, yes.
