    I feel like Vitali would be more aggressive than Wlad was against Fury and I think he would be more willing to throw causation to the wind and just go for the kill. Whether that would lead to him KOing fury or not idk but I think it would be a more interesting fight that the one Fury had against Wlad.

    Interesting fight. If it's prime Fury, then I think Fury edges it via UD if he manages not to get knocked down.

    I think Vitali would have a better go of it against Fury too, mainly because he doesn't hold back on throwing punches. His technique is nowhere near Wlad's but when you're essentially a 6'6 swarmer it doesn't matter. Vitali UD

    We really haven't seen Fury beat many prime contenders. To pick him on points over Vitali who's never lost decision in 47 fights is a stretch. Best guess is Vitali wins.

    What is Vitali's best win then? Not to mention that he lost against the 2 best opponents he fought.

    He lost via technical knockout. He wasn't down and he had the lead. Yet you're picking Vitali to lose via decision. I guess you might except a torn shoulder to a bad cut, which Fury had if a fight vs the Swedish guy, and he's not top ten contender. Stay on point to my reply. He beat the old and not very good. Check and you will see. Wilder is the only good raked contender he beat by Ring Magazine standards near his prime and drew once being floored. In fact he was down 4 times vs Wilder. Not a good sign against Vitali. We the last guy Fury beat was ranked. He sucked and produced a forgetful type of fight.

    Facts are he quit against Byrd and got stopped against an old overweight Lewis. What is Vitali's best win? You conveniently avoided the question.

    You conveniently avoided a torn rotator cuff and a cut.

    I can’t see a robotic limited fighter like Vitali beating Fury.
    Vitali has no size advantage like he normally has I just think Fury possesses to many little nuances and skills.
    I actually think it would be fairly comfortable.

    The Wlad Fury defeated was older and slow ... a prime Vitali, with his own size, strength, volume of punching and speed may be a very difficult match ups for Fury ..

    I have seen fighters with worse injuries finishing fights.

    You have no clue about shoulder injuries and the cut was the ref’s discretion.
