    Not to mention the stamina to back that up.

    If he moved like that, and then gassed after the 5th... it would still be impressive he could move like that, but then understandable that he pays the price for it and gasses.

    That he can move like that, fight like that, and maintain it through the fight.... its just unnatural to see, imo. Freak of nature in that regard.

    Honestly I wonder if the lack of muscle helps him in that aspect.

    I'd say he is very agile and slick for his size that is impressive. He can slip and attack real quick. Most Heavies are slow.Fury is mobile for a big fella.

    I did. I already had respect, but I actually lost a lot because of the Wallin fight.

    Fury dug deep to eke out the win, but I thought he was slacking hard to ever get into that situation.

    I think a big part of his stamina comes from just not swinging that hard.

    Wilder throws hard -- but rarely -- to conserve stamina.

    Fury throws often -- but lightly -- to conserve stamina.

    You couldn't help but gain respect for Fury after this weekend's demolition job on Wilder, not just in securing a resounding victory but the manner in which he did so with a strategy that he stated he'd use but not many actually thought he would implement.

    I'm not Fury's biggest fan but the way he dismantled Wilder on Saturday along with his other achievements along the way mean whether you like him or not you do have to admire what he's achieved in the ring.

    He earned my respect overnight.. I was thoroughly impressed with the Fury that showed up on Saturday

    Full credit to Fury I am sure he earned millions of fans among the doubters last night

    Boxing masterclass... Fury was a completely different fighter following the first bout

    Im not going to argue with a simpleton about your petty agenda driven “thought”. I shouldn’t have said anything, sorry if I hurt your feelings.
