    Usyks tanked wained also...which is what happens when you fight a competative opponent. Difference is usyk hasnt been living the poor lifestyle of Fury. And Fury spent months of what was an extended camp losing weight. Its impossible for Fury to build proper cardio in that time span. If he keeps it up for another 6 months cardio wise and stays slim he will be even fitter.

    I dont think the rematch will be easy for either guy. Fury can win but he has to commit more on his right hands. He needs to fight like a big man.

    1st point was clearly Fury trying to act, as he was scared to death of Usyk.

    2. If he was able to keep his hands up all the time he would have done it by now. You ain't fixing this at 36 years old.
    People should have listened what im telling them before the fight and for the Fury nonexistent guard. He never have high guard, he was always like this. This is his style.

    Now as for the Wilder 2 fight. People forget to mention that Wilder comes 20lbs. heavier for no good reason and his balance and cardio was gone.
    And even then watch round 1 and some of the others. Wilder still managed to land few of his right hands. But Fury was on his bike when the shots landed and didn't bother him much.
    I was never impressed with that version of Fury as he looks slow and sloppy throwing punches. Wilder was just garbage that night. Just like Fury was garbage against Ngannou.
    If he tries that approach this is easy win for Usyk. Fury best bet is to pray Usyk decline even more comes December, and use similar backfoot counter tactic.

    One of the major adjustments he needs to make. He has a bad habit of dropping his hands too and he's been made to pay for it several times, even before Usyk. Usyk is too skilled to be doing that against.

    No. I think he should throw fewer. Doing so cost him in rounds 8 and 9.

    If it worked at the end of the fight, then it may have been due to Usyk being tired.

    Maybe Fury should only attempt it then.

    I thought Fury vs Usyk was a close fight and those adjustments could be enough to swing the rematch in Fury's favour.

    Obviously, I hope that doesn't happen as I want Usyk to win.

    The guy that makes adjustments is usyk
    Think about it. Usyl won a few close rounds, but Fury started to find his measure and looked to be in full control

    What happened next? Usyk adjusted to the style, broke Fury's nose, probably should have a knockout, but certainly won the fight

    I DO think Usyk is overrated and benefiting from weak opposition.

    However, I do still think he is ATG category and can easily adjust to the Joshua's, furys and parkers of this world

    Usyk wins within 8 rounds

    Exactly.

    Fury tried several things - Usyk simply had answers for everything.

    Adaptability and Boxing IQ (inextricably entwined) are two of the most crucial intangible attributes in boxing. See one, Muhammad Ali, for same.

    Also, several of these desired “adjustments”being put forward for Fury are basically requiring a hypothetical fighter, who Fury is not and never has been or will be, to turn up in the rematch. Weird.
