    Tyson only fares well as an underdog, not as the man.

    Besides Wlad & Wilder, he's fought nobody and ducked everyone.

    He has said in the past there is no money in Usyk and he doesn't want him.

    Maybe that changed now.

    Fury accepted to fight Wilder when he was as fat as a pig and very ring rusty. What makes you think he would duck Usyk?

    I think there's a very good chance Usyk will beat Fury.

    Fury will actually use his weight and size unlike Joshua, so it'll be a much harder fight. But Usyk is a far better boxer, and Fury's reflexes are very diminished.

    There is no way Fury avoids Usyk.

    Fury of last night whips Usyk of a couple weeks ago...

    The opening post is even more amusing if you read it in your head with a Klitschko accent.

    Enjoy the prospect of a fight, buzzards. You have one extraordinary champion, one fine challenger, two unique and high-quality individuals and an interesting matchup to ponder. But you guys have to make it about your hatred of Fury (whether open or thinly veiled). :lol:

    When Tyson gets his belts back, you won't see me revelling in Usyk's defeat. He's earned obligatory respect through a history of personal charm, commitment to his craft and character inside the ropes.

    Which is why he plans to attend Usyk-Joshua II. Squeaky butt time, ay, ya goof.

    Doubly apt, because that moniker will be your likely recourse when Fury not only makes the fight but emerges from the smoke with all his belts. :hang

    He is not ducking Usyk he has a ton of advantages in that fight.

    He very well may.
    I would make Fury a slight favourite will be cheering for him to win.

    But if there is anyone on the current scene who has a serious chance, I think it's Usyk.

    Fury will be the favourite vs Usyk.

    2/5 favourite I think.

    Usyk could win, but I don't think so. Fury too much for him physically. And he can box well himself.

    Who on Fury's resume suggests he fears no man? His 2 best wins are an old Wlad and Wilder. Old and limited. Don't give me that Wlad was top notch BS either! Wlad couldn't get his punches off because he had the reflexes of a 40 year old man. Went to war with AJ. Everybody knows, a 30 year old Wlad destroys AJ. But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Fury ducks Usyk. Just that, in my opinion, Fury's resume since getting the title has been very shallow. Not rematching Wlad isn't a very good look and hurts the claim that he doesn't duck any man.

    Fury fought Wlad in Germany. Fought Wilder in the US x 3. Took on undefeated Chisora and won, KO'd Cunningham away from home. He's not always had the deck stacked in his favor in what has been a stop start career.

    Fury doesn't really strike me as someone who's scared of facing Usyk.

    If anything he might fancy the job more now. The strategy is simple don't box him. Go in there pin him down and F** him up.

    Get ugly, psychical and sake the smaller man around hold and hit etc etc...cause you ain't out boxing Usyk.

    Knocking out Cunningham is an accomplishment now? Or limited Wilder? 65 year old Ortiz came from nursing home to knock down Wilder. Both Fury' s and Wilder's fans are delusional.
