    Fourth? Realistically, and what I reckon would be known if all of the best were to face the best, he wouldn’t be in the top 15. Overrated and carefully matched against dross. Got battered in the most embarrassing loss in history.

    Ridiculous comment, by far AJ is 2nd behind Usyk. The only right thing to do is put it up for the fight next week.

    If Joshua wins, Fury will come out of retirement. He is only doing this so it looks like he isn't avoiding Usyk. If Usyk wins and Fury doesn't fight him, I wouldn't be surprised if Usyk retires as well.

    But what a great comeback it was, however brief.

    Iron Fist v Iron Chin is a fight worthy of a World Title Belt

    Wilder lost twice on the trot so why do you think he deserves a third shot at the title straight away? Ludicrous.

    Beating a bunch of useless opponents in glossy stadium shows has you duped.

    When Usyk schools Joshua next week, the public demand for Usyk vs Fury will be insane.

    Fury is just setting up the promotion for an Usyk fight.

    Usyk vs Fury at Wembley in April is my bet. The biggest heavyweight fight since Ali-Frazier.

    WBC have given Fury 2 weeks to confirm his retirement in writing.

    If he as to fight Usyk for the Ring belt he's not winning it thrice, I don't believe he beats Usyk, especially in the next 18 months and to be honest I think Fury will decline faster than Usyk. With the exception of Wilder 3, Fury has never behaved like a champ when he's been Champ, it's really frustrating for the division and he can't be considered an ATG with two defences.

    Fury is better than Usyk. He's still the big willy of the heavyweight division. And to have people come out and say that he's ducking Usyk (not saying you are) is absolutely mind boggling. The undisputed fight will happen.

    I said after the fight with Whyte that he should just walk away as the decline imo is obvious even from the 3rd Wilder fight. There's no shame in that at all imo. Biology gets to us all eventually, some sooner than others. A younger, fresher, hungrier fighter will chin him and he won't be able to get back up.

    I've always backed him, even when he was 60 stone and on the Columbian marching powder, but his footwork is so much slower. He's less elusive. He's sitting down on his shots a lot more but that's because he can't move out of harms way anymore. Wilder very nearly stopped him.

    The approach to Chisora is embarrassing and he needs to knock it on the head now. Time to step aside and let the younger, better conditioned lads go at it.
