    Joyce cracked that "glass face" and Lerena knocked him down. He showed a lot of heart in both of those fights.

    We'll see but if Usyk can't hurt Dubois he could be in a lot of trouble.

    I feel like Lerena blew it by not throwing enough he could have beat Dubois if he just let his hands go and emptied the tank but at the time of the stoppage he was done.

    Usyk will be landing punches from angles that Dubois didn’t even know existed. I think it will be a one way clinic whilst Dubois tries to land a lucky Hail Mary before the towel comes in around the 9th.

    Dubois Usyk is virtually a cash out. I would be trying to get that fight because Dubois is a KO waiting to happen

    get what you mean but is it? He is so young, if he gets £2m and fights Usyk surely he can only learn from it and there's zero expectation on him. Win win I think?

    Fury is a cancer to the sport. The sooner he's gone the sooner the damage can start to heal.

    Fury didn't fight a Roofer or did he? Hearn doesn't fool me - it's ALL about cash with him. Fury beat Klitschko in Germany and officially beat Wilder twice in America. This last week he has managed to stay relevant (as always) by the likes of Jon Jones, Israel Adesanya, Ben Askren, Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping talking about him & you got Damian Lillard doing a bit of hating (Point is, Fury is popping - like it or not)

    The cash-cow may get seriously hurt in December.

    Usyk is going to outclass Fury the way Fury outclassed Wilder.

    Dubois just doesnt have it imo. I'm not even convinced he genuinely wants to fight

    I am convinced he does not want to fight. Controlling father who still lives with him. Must be suffocating.

    Yes you are certainly popping if Ben Askren talks about you

    It's similar to Valuev's run.

    Because with his physical deterioration, it isn't an easy win.

    A lot of misperception happening because a lot of people are now vastly underrating AJ while vastly overrating Wilder. AJ is still, despite it all, the better man with the credible title reign, while Wilder was beating up on punching bags like Molina and Szpilka.

    Yeah, I think on their best day, Fury is better than Joshua, but how much has booze, cocaine, morbid obesity, Wallin and Wilder taken out of him?

    Fury has had a grand total of 3 title defences. A decent one in the third wilder fight (good brawl but poor quality from both fighters) and two against shot fighters - Whyte and Chizza.

    Anyone putting him in the top 10 all time HWs needs to have a word with themselves.

    Totally agree, I think he's a big strong lad, but I genuinely think he'd rather be doing something/anything else.
