    God you're getting saltier and saltier by the day. Almost sheer hater level. Why don't you pump the brakes on that? Clearly you're not processing something about Usyk properly. Go study him until it finally clicks.

    Usyk of 2 weeks ago would beat Fury of tonight.
    Hats off to Fury, he fought a brave fight and gutted it out in an instant classic slugfest, but he looked off his game tonight. Not much of his usual defensive movement, mostly flat footed, barely any feinting and he looked exhausted.

    I would just say Fury-Uysk is a ways from happening. Uysk has to rematch AJ next year. Fury will have to defend the WBC.

    AJ was tied on the cards with Uysk in the 8th. Had he landed something big down the stretch could had the late KO against Usyk that many were predicting. Second fight could go either way.

    Fury-Uysk is hardly on the menu yet.

    I only favour Fury because of his size.

    If Fury come in slob-version, then Usyk has a very good chance.

    Fury light on his feet, boxing at range and clinching close ... will be much harder.

    Steve Cunnigham put Fury on his ass. Those who are waving away Usyks power like hes Malignaggi, just because he doesnt hit as hard as Wilder, are gonna be in for a rude awakening.

    I don't see absolutely any advantages Usyk has over tyson... he doesn't have the reach, the mass... they have the same footwork, same speed, same IQ... another thing I noticed about Usyk I just realized, he has ZERO inside fight game... absolutely nothing.. no uppercut or anything... Fury can grab him up and take him in a dog fight... I just don't see Usyk doing anything.... Only man that can beat Fury is his state of mind... his mental well being.. thats it.

    Usyk is a better, quicker fighter than Fury, no way could Wilder catch and knockdown Usyk because of his active guard, something is always moving, his head, his feet or his gloves leaving fighters with no stationary target, no way will Fury beat Usyk weighing 277lbs, if Wilder could catch him then Usyk wil catch him all night, Usyk will toy with Fury and Wilder.

    Usyk has a higher ring IQ
    Usyk is definitely way faster in hand and feet
    Usyk has the better stamina
    Usyk is technically in a different league

    Fury is bigger and heavier
