    As I mentioned in the topic opened by senpai, I've never seen the reverse of the usual 'what will Usyk fans say if Fury beats him, will you have any excuses?' scenario, so I thought let's flip the script. What will you Fury supporters say when Usyk beats Fury on Saturday? Will there be any excuses?

    Hopefully not. I hope we won't hear any of this 'prime Fury would have beaten him' because the fight could have been made well over two years ago. I don't want to hear anything about mental health issues, family matters, wear and tear, his lifestyle robbing him of his peak performance, or any other excuses for why he would have destroyed Usyk otherwise. Fury recently admitted that Usyk will be the best fighter he has ever faced, better than Klitschko, Wilder, and Whyte, and how he witnessed Usyk beating Klitschko up in sparring. So, it would be a moot point to claim 'prime Fury would do this and that' when the man himself has admitted Usyk is the real deal. If Usyk was better than Klitschko already in 2016 as a cruiserweight, then there's no place for 'prime Fury' excuses anyway.

    Fury has been avoiding Usyk for well over two years now, fighting Chisora and Ngannou while ballooning up again and talking about what a middleweight midget Usyk is. After all this delay and talk, we better hear nothing but humble acknowledgment from all of the Furys and their fans when Usyk takes his 0 on Saturday. Fury was allowed by Usyk to slim down, to heal from cuts and bruises, to train for almost more than six months and get into the best shape he possibly can at this stage. In fact, Usyk literally said he wanted Fury at his utmost best so there would be no excuses when he beats him.

    Tyson Fury: "Congratulations Oleksandr. You're a true fighting man it was an honour to share the ring with you. There's my hand and my heart" *gets down on both knees and kisses his hand, Usyk follows in suit*

    Oleksandr: "Thankyou my friend Tyson, I love you"

    Everyone sees how two honourable gentlemen accept victory and defeat. Something AJ, Wlad, Wilder and many other champs before couldn't do.

    Good post. Hopefully there will be no excuses when Usyk is crowned the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World.
    Twilight is upon Tyson Fury, and soon the night will fall. The sport of boxing will be better for it.

    Can't wait until Fury is nothing but a memory. Guy has been nothing but a skid mark on the heavyweight division for far too long.

    It will be worse than what happened with Jim Jones.

    His lifestyle choices have continually drained him, leaving him far from his peak, perhaps never even reaching 80%, let alone 98%. However, these choices are his alone, and the consequences are his burden to bear. He doesn't lean on them as excuses, and neither should we. Should Fury face defeat, even amid questionable circumstances, his response will undoubtedly be one of grace and respect, win or lose.

    I'm not a fan of anyone, but they will probably say something like this: "If Fury had given his all to this match, he definitely would have beaten Usyk."

    Since Fury came in good shape and was keen to fight, there won't be excuses, provided it is a fair victory (correct stoppage or cards). People will say Usyk beat him. It also depends on how the fight is won though. Edging a points win won't mean too much either way and the rematch will then be needed to get a better idea.

    I think it's clear 'Fury fans' would take this loss better than 'Usyk fans'. Fury fans seem to understand how good Usyk is, but a lot of Usyk fans want to believe Fury is a fraud. So it will definitely be harder for them if Fury wins.

    I disagree. Based on my experience, most Fury fans really identify with his behaviour and questionable actions and remarks. Only a minority admit that Fury is not a good person and has been a very bad ambassador for the sport, but they still like him for what he does in the ring. Most Fury fans are like those who are very vocal here on this forum, thinking how brilliant he is in everything and siding with him no matter the controversy or turmoil he finds himself in time and again. With that attitude, I don't think they would give credit to Usyk. Not that Usyk would need it, though. I expect the vast majority of Fury fans to come up with excuses, since Fury has dug himself into a hole here. For two years, all we heard was 'middleweight midget who can only beat bodybuilders.' So, if Fury loses to a small, 15-stone midget who can only beat up bodybuilders, it could only be because Tyson had mental health issues again or his heart wasn't fully in it, etc.

    I'd congratulate him but I guarantee if fury wins this board will be full of: he cheated, he used peds, he's a drugs cheat, he fights dirty, uysk is too small and overrated, it means nothing, he needs to beat aj and hrgovic etc
