    He looked good vs 50 year old Wlad. That's about it. Maybe Wallin showed his true level.

    I like all the Fury concern trolling that in reality is intended to diminish Wilder's accomplishment, should he win the fight. I'm not saying the OP is doing that, but many here are.

    Fury is at his peak. He always has been up and down, depending on the opponent. He fought the same way against Wilder that he did against Wladimir. He's very difficult for the top guys to beat but is susceptible to an upset because he's not the world's foremost professional. I don't like him but he's very good.

    Yes he looked good, but they weren't fighting, they were sniffing each other trying to determine if a fight was gonna break out.
    Fury is a mediocre boxer with size. He will no doubt fight to his level of mediocrity.

    Did you not see the Hauser piece about the Otter? Blew my mind and I now have a lot more respect for Fury's accomplishments that night.

    What happened to his reflexes when he was dodging Wilder's wild but fast punches?

    I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that his prime was when he was 28 years old, when he was 28 stones in weight and an alcoholic drug user.

    His prime, I think, was when he was 26 or 27 years old.

    One thing to keep in mind is that Wallin is a southpaw. Fury didn't feel comfortable all fight and he switched stances multiple times early in the fight (before the cut happened). He also didn't see the left hand coming on a number of occasions. Wallin was doing a good job mixing up his punches, going to the body and head. He's got some good skills.

    It's hard to say Fury lost his reflexes. Wallin's style just made him look bad. Wilder doesn't go to the body and he's not a southpaw. We'll see in February.

    Fury looked even worse against Seferi and Pianeta.

    Wallin is to Fury what Cory Sanders was to Klitschko? Some guys show no respect, let alone fear.
