Can't' say you didn't call it. and That about sums it up
Well, I've just put a poster on ignore for the first time ever.
Fury is past it and he knows it, i can't see many falling for any of his next fights and paying for them, everybody wanted to see the undisputed.
What a sad way to end what could have been a fantastic end to your career, remembered as the one who ducked the biggest and most meaningful fight of it.
I am no fan of AJ but at least he went back to back with Usyk and i give him massive respect for doing so, but Fury he has gone so far down in my estimation, nothing he says will ever convince me that he wanted this fight now and never will.
The big fat shithouse dosser.
AJ has fought much better competition than Fury ... he KO'ed Klitschko, he thrashed a younger Whyte, Parker, Povetkin, Ruiz, Pulev and of course Usyk ... Fury is all based on Deontae Wilder ...
Wish I was wrong ... little annoys me more than fighters with pull manipulating / delaying bouts for unfair advantages ...
This just goes to show there's a kind of fan (not just in boxing) that will excuse anything. Also showing your own bigotry clearly here.
Really sucks that Fury is pulling this crap. No one with half a brain thinks that a guy like Uysk who agreed to a ridiculous 70/30 split is the reason for this fight falling through. Uysk has made a career out of fighting the best available and in most cases going into a guys backyard and beating them there.
The guy is Ukraninan and went into Moscow to unify the cruiserweight title against Gassiev and beat him and then beat Joshua in his home country. No way Uysk is the guy avoiding the fight.
Agreed , now he doubles down with the "announcement of his wife pregnant with child seven" and has his PR people push that narrative of the great father to spin attention ... I'm convinced he's falling apart again ...
I'm not a Fury fan. I do like him more than the lot out there at HW atm, but he's not among my favorite boxers.
Who cares how many kids he has? Bring 'em to the fight. He's shitting on his legacy. I'm really not liking this.
Well, that's one way of reversing falling birthrates.
"What made you decide for child #whatever Mrs Whoever?"
"Apparently if I didn't get pregnant again a little guy was gonna come and beat my husband up."
Can't argue about competition but Fury isn't all Wilder, he beat Wlad first while Wlad was still a champion reigning for 11 yrs. He fought AJ two yrs after that coming off inactivity n not fighting in two yrs after Fury. Rest of what u said I agree with.
I appreciate your point but Wlad was close to forty when Fury decisioned and the story of the fight was why Wlad could not let his hands go which is the sign of an aged fighter ... putting aside the drama it was a pretty boring, low punch output flight ..
Aging but still a reigning champion. How we feel about the fight is subjective but Wlad was critiqued for not letting his hands go for his whole reign. I remember ppl saying his formula was jab,jab,jab then hold rinse n repeat which isn't far off. After Brewster stopped him he never was known to let his hands go but that strategy worked for a decade as champion at least.
Ahhh, not exactly ... he punched himself out against Brewster and collapsed from near overexertion ... after that he was all about pace and protecting his chin ... he jabbed a lot , the criticism was safety first not no punching .. he dominated a decade .. against Fury Klitschko threw 230 punches over twelve rounds , less than 20 per round ... he threw over 500 over twelve rounds against Haye, more than double and that was in his conservative mode ... he was old against Fury and it showed ..
