    Kronk sparring is tough, but it’s probably on a similar level to Wildcard sparring.

    I do believe this as when you have this injury you cannot straighten your arm, let alone throw a snappy jab. Makes sense why he was throwing lots of hooks and fighting inside. Credit to him with having pain in both.

    Also made him vulnerable to the knockdown- leading square on.

    Yeah, in Wilder 3 fight he started to look like Vitaly Klitschko, who fought Chisora. He looked like he was being held up by a duck tape.

    I don't like Anthony Joshua but I've a sneaking feeling he'll stop Usyk in the rematch. He hit Usyk with a big right hand in the first fight and literally froze the man for two or three seconds. AJ didn't have the energy or will to jump on him there and then but surely he will if the same scenario occurs in the rematch?

    I may be wrong. Usyk could also stop a more expansive AJ in the rematch but I just have that feeling.

    As for Fury. Three more fights please. Whyte, Usyk, AJ and no rematches. Head down, train hard, live the life for the duration of that period and then retire. No doubt another heavyweight will emerge by that time but you've got to call it a day some time. Not getting any younger, abused his body and been in plenty of tough fights along the way.

    I think Fury should retire now as nothing left to prove, a mountain of loot in the bank and a legendary legacy that will be talked about for years and years after we have all gone. Will also keep @Mitch87 eternally busy taking apart his CV.

    At most should he continue, he should quickly take care of Pudding Whyte then finish his career with a final fight to become undisputed champion against the winner of Usyk v Joshua.

    The legend of The Gyspy King is simply an incredible inspirational story to pass down to future generations.

    The legendary legacy if in the last 5 years of beating guys ranked out of the top 40 and beating the guy with the poorest resume in top 10 several times.


    I agree, Fury has nothing yet to prove, we'll maybe except actually proving he is top 5 quality by beating a decent opponent for first time in over 5 years. Dare I say it, maybe even stop turning offers from AJ and Whyte and fight them? Or Even actually fighting the best in the divison in Usyk?

    Fury has effectively done a "David Haye comeback" and mugged off a lot PPV muguths off by beating very poor opposition. The difference between the two is that Haye actually fought a guy (Bellew) who beat a decent Wolrd Champion unlike Fury on his return.

    All good stuff, @Mitch87.
    But can't you see by now that you are the only person in the world who doesn't even rate Deontay Wilder as "a decent opponent"?

    Unifying the division is an absolute MUST. Joshua is a tit but he has to knock Usyk out because an undisputed bout between the two needs to happen, it might even eclipse the Mayweather - Pac fight
