    There wont be anything easy about it mate, the length of Fury and Usyk's high profile and whats thought of him would have Fury in at his best, he is in better shape now and if he stays focused its his fight imo..Ive heard Usyk too mention that Fury's the difficult one because of size and movement, that's how I see it. With Furys length and mobility/foot work it'll be hard to close the gap and when he does he has 6 9" and 270lb draped over him tying him up. Sorry mate, I don't think Hunter Breidis and Hunter are relevant here
    You can guarantee he'll bring a different approach, hes turning out to be a very clever determined individual and his belief is deeper than anyone he faces, its a given, he has that natural mentality on everyone else, hes the least manufactured fighter out there, a proper proper fighting man

    I think Hunter's speed and skill along with his smaller stature(smaller target to hit) could pose problems for Fury. Im not saying I think Hunter would win or that id bet on him -- I wouldnt -- but those have always been traits and attributes that troubled him in the past. Id favor Fury like 70-30 or 80-20.

    I like Hrgovic and could certainly see him beating Hunter H2H, but against Fury I think he would be screwed. Hes a big dude, much slower than Fury, and is addicted to taking punches to the dome. I think Fury would UD him 100 out of 100 times.

    You're underrating and undervaluing Usyk's level of skill and craftiness in the ring. Just like Hunter, Briedis and Huck aren't relevant here, neither is Wilder, Klitschko and Wallin. Like I said, someone asked a question, I gave my answer as to what I think would be the nightmare opponent, an "on" Usyk is the definition of that. You may disagree, but I also don't think you're taking into consideration that Usyk is more skilled than Fury, is faster than Fury, has a higher ring IQ than Fury, who also fights to the level of his opponents like Fury, and brings variables to the table that many former Fury opponents have that's given him issues, but they're all wrapped up in one with Usyk. Does that mean he'll definitely win here? Of course not, but understand Usyk is a far different animal than (sans Wlad) any of the skill less fighters Fury has shared the ring with in the past, and make no mistake most of his opponents haven't been very talented.

    Clever against Wilder.o_O

    I have him no1 cruiser of all time lol
    I meant because of the size, I should've explained better, it would be easier showing his inside game on them guys in and around his size, but it'll be harder to get inside against the big fellas at heavy or Fury size if they have a good jab
    No, honestly, I agree with all of this, its right, Usyk is all of those things and all better than Fury, but im a firm believer in size when the other man has good iq himself, you have to have more size as well as having the skill advantage to take advantage of the skill advantage imo. Its not a knock on Usyk, hes p4p no1 for me, I don't think Holy would do well with the big athletic men now either coming up

    Usyk will only be looking to get 'inside' on Fury in so much as getting inside his reach, i.e. into the mid-range, before getting back out again. He's not an infighter and he wont be keen to engage Fury on those terms (nor would I blame him for that).

    This 100%... a left handed Mike Tyson style (left hand not necessary imo)... duck under the jab, step forward, blinker feints by moving one foot to the other over and over, move head from waist, set, bang (times X), remove, repeat (repeat FAST)

    Fury is the king of a pile of ****e at the minute.

    What is disappointing to me is what Fury could of been.

    There's like never been one of these at HW...

    I'd pick Sanders to beat the version who fought Wallin. Does that count?

    That straight left was special of Sanders. I agree there never has been,im picturing different fighters when CST mentions each attribute, theres never been that fighter with all of it together as a southpaw. I cant even think of a successful south paw at heavy come to think of it, contenders maybe
