    It's not all about wins and losses but a lot of it and who's got enough flint in the water when the goin' gets tough. Because that's when some fighters really get going. You've gotta analyze the footage. This is a sophisticated operator. He can do things that Fury cannot CANNOT do. But he's fighting SIMPLISTIC dudes like Wlad. Who was great for his size but you are the one in a conversation with me about POUND FOR POUND. The criteria are #ridiculous#. Look at Adrien's opponent list back to back to back to back. The extended play of Broner's career doesn't need to extend no more. Fury is so far behind this dude it is #ridiculous# like I tagged before. And listen, love Fury for lots of reasons like sticking up for the right things in life but it ain't close. Look at the sharpness of the Broner hook, the follow-through, the precision, the authority, the commitment, the timing. Fury punches at targets, not through, because he knows he can't use skills to throw them proper and be out the way afterward without pulling at all his punches to some extent.

    There's a song called Free Speech For The Dumb but you ain't supposed to be dumb when you exercise that right. That is not a prescriptive statement as much as it is an observant one.

    In boxing it's one false move and you're a goner. But who was punching at Fury VS who was punching at Broner? Did you grow up with this guy? Are you tight? What gave you the right? This an inside joke between the two of ya'll, hangin' outta Bentley or on a yacht together? Because that's the only thing that would explain this. I really don't know. You gettin LIT UP, bro! ​

    I know ya'll hear me, I'm still riding. That's just what I'm gonna do. Hearn said Gavin Rees would beat everyone Broner beat but then Broner DECIMATED him lopsighted. DID HE get credit? NO. Not from nobody. Actually no literally FROM NOBODY, not even as a double negative. Nobody had a kind word to say. Fury starts getting his booty hole eaten out by a much smaller man and he's just having an awf night or whatever? PLEASE. And Broner is "offal". PLEASE.

    You know, and Fury has putted up with a lot of prejudice too because of who he is but what I'm saying is he can go down the damn street without being arrested and people can still recognize when doing good boxing. But it's so overboard that if you compare him to Broner you can say what you said about him and then there ain't no push back at all whatsoever. Like I'm the only one who even bothered to respond because everyone else either took it as fact or was a coward about it. But I respect you enough as a man to come in and try to talk to you and talk some sense into you so that you can not embarrass yourself like this.

    I mean, everyone is somebody's daughter, somebody's son, so that needs to be respected is what I'm saying. So instead of ignoring you and putting you on ignore like I did Kirk because he's so off the wall and unreasonable all the time with his prejudice, but no I am speaking to you like you're my equal even though I obviously know that I know more about boxing than you do and you're clearly not keeping up with this stuff. But anyway did you actually watch any of the stuff I just posted or give it a chance to see what's actually up?

    Look at some of these things. Please. With respect.

    This is a properly thrown, defending, objectively extended jab against a legendary fighter who is good at avoiding them and countering them from other legends:

    This is Fury's against some guy named Vita Agjian (who?):

    They say that hindsight is twenny twenny but what about NOW SIGHT? Read this page where everyone in the world commented that they had Broner up by DOMINANT first round against Rodriguez.

    I've never regarded Fury as especially skilled. He's good. He's got the fighter's mindset and mental toughness. He's got some nice moves for a big man. Pretty mobile for a large, overweight guy. Decent timing and rhythm. Mediocre puncher.
    It's his size, natural toughness and general skillset that makes him hard to beat. But he's not especially talented if you're talking pure skill.
