    First line is incorrect. Toughest fight was against Briedis. Arguably the second toughest was against Bellew. Chisora was easy, as he outlander Chisora in 9 of 12 rounds and staggered him. Easy fight with blind judges.

    Joshua was a good fight.

    Sorry, didn't even read much of the rest, but Fury has openly admitted to having difficulties due to physical decline. I have seen the interviews myself.

    Bellew gives Usyk a rough night and chisora pushes him hard, but Fury is afraid of him? Lol

    I think usyk is brilliant, but size matters and Tyson under Sugar Hill will beat him

    I'm a huge fan of both guys, but I lean to Fury

    Fury will fight Usyk after he beats Aj

    Anybody who understands boxing would fear confronting a generational talent like Usyk. It doesn't matter if he loses every fight going forward he has proven himself as an elite scholar of the sweet science.

    2 out of 3 does not logically exclude Briedis.

    Bellew was an easy fight; Usyk was tiring him out without landing much, making Bellew work hard for every point he scored, took very few hurtful shots and KO'd him faster and more brutally than any of his other notable opponents.

    Chisora pushed Usyk uncomfortably close considering the reputation of UK judges and the poor reputation of wide underdog Chisora going in, Usyk's own team thought Chisora could have be given a draw. The first 4 rounds were bad for Usyk and a couple of the late rounds were uncomfortably close. Usyk won clearly on my card but it was the kind of competitive, scrappy fight where hometown Chisora could have got something out of it, especially considering that Usyk was regarded as a threat to AJ down the road. Nobody came away from watching that fight thinking that Usyk had performed well, the vast majority predicted an Usyk shutout or late stoppage. Usyk also took far more punishment against Chisora than he did against Bellew; he knew he'd been in a hard 12 round fight with a guy he described as a "monster".

    If you believe everything Fury says then you're an idiot. Some other fool will probably be making a thread on Fury saying he'll fight AJ for free, dancing to Fury's tune.

    "Sorry, didn't even read much of the rest"

    Then I've lost interest.

    Bellew was up ion the cards, Joshua never was. Usyk's two toughest fights were Briedis and Bellew.

    If someone from Usyk's team said that Chisora could have had a draw, then they should be fired. There is no universe in which the fight was close.

    I am an idiot for believing Fury went he says he feels his age and miles? Physician, heal thyself.

    Usyk had Bellew entirely in hand.

    I dont know if hes scared specifically of Usyk but I do think hes scared of his bubble bursting in general. Hes got people thinking hes some unbeatable master boxer h2h ATG and the consensus is hes easily the best of his era. If he "retires" those perceptions of him will be there forever, and I think hes well aware of that.

    Fury v usyk would be a complete mismatch, fury can fight any style he chooses and win by a landslide.

    He may be past his prime. If he fights like he did against Wilder and Whyte and his fat as is out of shape, he'll get dominated by Usyk.

    I think it could be a dull fight with Fury spoiling and clinching for the most as he won't want to get into exchanges with Usyk.

    I agree. The only man who can beat Usyk is Wilder.

    Furys resume is **** but I think he deep down feels Usyk could beat him, he definitely beats AJ and he knows that so his definitely hoping AJ can spark Usyk, can't see it though.

    I don't think Usyk would let Fury lean on him and put 270 pounds all over him like Wilder and Whyte let him.

    Usyk could beat Fury on the cards, probably the only boxer that beats current day Fury if it goes 12.

    The only man Fury fears is Monster Inoue.

    I think this is it in a nutshell. Fury isn't scared of Usyk as such but he's probably thinking it's a much tougher night than others he's had, and probably not worth the risk.
