    Fury is a conundrum and possibly always will be. He is getting on a bit now so is unlikely to clear out the division even if he wins this one plus the infuriatingly inevitable re-match. People will probably still be wondering if he was actually any good in 50 years time.

    Will have done Wlad and Wilder away from home as well (would be twice on Wilder really too). Some achievement if he can win this!

    Only in Britland is a old WK, who stunk the point out for a decade a signature win for two British Fighters........

    Fury is talented but boring as F inside the Ring, throws 5.25 pillow fist punches a round...

    Wilder losses rounds but gets Highlite One Punch Ko's

    The Bodybuilder spits his mouth piece out and quits when the going gets rough.......I do not see fury or Wilder doing the same thing ever.

    IMO Wilder figured Fury out during the fight.....the two knock downs proof it and with a less lenient Ref he might have gotten the KO.

    Again IMO, that was Dusseldorf Fury, he was in the best shape of his life, full of confidence, if he gets even more defensive he is loosing a decision....if he opens up more the chance to get knocked down or out goes up dramatically.

    So lets see what he does and I am convinced that he is effected mentally by the two knock downs, he was never hurt like that in fight ever.

    Fury does what he always does, clown, move, feint and flicker jabs and the occasional right .

    If Wilder is following up what he did in the second half of the first fight from the get go we might have a short night.

    However it would be comical if Fury stops wilder.

    I’ve got it Wilder, Joshua, Fury in that order. A (knockout) win for Wilder cements his place as number one. It doesn’t really push Fury any further back as most people would get iced by Wilder and I suppose he’s still the man that beat the man. His win over Klitschko (many moons ago) would still be the best of any active heavyweight.

    If Fury wins via any method then yeah he will be the number a. I’m not sure how I’d personally rank Fury if he bores his way to a points decision. I think he would go to number 1 but that would be a very thin position depending on how wide the decision was. He’s said that he’s gona knock Wilder out, well I hope he does it and then cements himself as number 1. This is heavyweight boxing after all.

    Something that always baffles me are the question marks about Fury's toughness and bottle. He's been down several times in his career and got up every time strong legged and fought hard. He took on ten year unbeaten Wlad in Germany and won. He took on Wilder in America. In fact, he's signed to fight Wilder for 36 rounds. It doesn't get any more badass than that these days.

    People saying he's badly affected by the knockdowns against Wilder are having a laugh. How do you work that one out? He got up and battered Wilder for the rest of the round. He then signed to fight Wilder a further twenty-four rounds. If you're referring to the two keep busy fights inbetween, that was Bob Arum's work.

    Against Cunningham he was having a torrid night and got put down heavy. He got up, bit down on the gumshield and knocked Cunningham out cold.

    Against Wallin he was visibly not at peak condition for whatever reasons. He looked weak and flat footed. He then suffered a horrendous cut. Wallin may not be the best of boxers but he's huge, was unbeaten and really put it on Fury and the cut. What did Fury do? Bit down on the gumshield and left it all in the bloody ring, winning a clear UD. He would've fought another four rounds like that if he had to.

    If people want to question Fury's ability go ahead. He hasn't shown it as many times as he should over the years. However, his toughness and bottle can't be questioned. The man is a beast who has no quit in him and Wilder may have to bingo him several times to keep him down.

    Well, they have not fought yet have they ?

    If one pulls out it is most likely Fury, I want to see the fight, I would like Wilder to win because I find him more entertaining in the Ring but if fury pulls it off it will not upset me, I aint making a dime off either one of them.

    The whole IBF thing with Pulev smells too.....

    If he whoops wilder I won't think much of it. Wilder would get whooped by half a dozen or more current guys he sucks.

    If fury gets knocked out I won't think much either. Wilder can knock anyone out, it's boxing 1 punch can change the fight. Doesn't mean fury isn't far superior.

    A) He convincingly beats Wilder and becomes WBC heavyweight?

    Depends on how long he sticks around and defends his belt for. If he blows up in weight and retires for 2 years then it will be difficult to rank him. Given he hasnt showed the longevity which all great champions prove. To rank him after this win we need the perspective of how many defences he made and what his end of career resume was.


    B) He gets ‘highlight real’ KTFO by Wilder?

    He will go down as a HW with one good win and a poor resume. Someone who will divide opinion because he wasted his talents, and didnt make the most of his boxing career. Will end up around top 50-60 in ATG HW lists

    Watched about 10 seconds. Imagine making a 7 minute video on something a boxer says! Madness for one and that exactly the reaction the boxer wants.
