    Late in the fight, should there be a 3rd fight?

    It'll be just like most Wilder matches. It would be as pointless as Froch-Groves 3.

    So no. Quite frankly there shouldn't even be an Ortiz rematch.

    Depends on HOW one sided it was. If Fury schooled him and beat him up for 75%+ fight only to be suddenly stopped then it would probably warrant a rematch. Competitive with Fury being stopped late? Yeah no 3rd fight.

    I agree, not very high on the Ortiz rematch...would rather see one of these other guys get a shot, even Miller or Whyte.
    I still have Wilder head and shoulders above Fury in terms of competition...
    AJ has been the only guy to truly take on all comers...and last I seen him he was grovelling around on the canvas like a drunken hobo

    Fury, obviously Tyson won that but divine intervention saved him in the 12th

    In all of them, Wilder was getting badly outboxed

    As others have said, that’s the Wilder we’ve come to know. One shot from him is all it takes. He isn’t going to outbox anyone.

    I really don’t understand the question. You win boxing by knocking someone out or by decision. They don’t redo a race if the driver won by a hair or a mile. They don't have another NBA finals if it was won by one point. Why should it be any different here. Boxing trilogies should only happen if it’s one win a piece. First match was a draw. If the Second match is a draw I’ll be very surprised. So whomsoever wins, wins and that’s the end of it.

    I'm not bragging, but if you go back through my post history I predicted before the fight that Wilder would be losing to Tyson Fury and would come from behind and win by KO in the 12th round. lol It was a darn good prediction, but Fury ruined it by getting up off the canvas, so I ended up being wrong since it ended in a Draw.

    I suspect Fury would retire if he got KO'd by Wilder so I doubt there'd be a rematch. Fury strikes me as someone who wouldn't cope well with a devastating KO defeat, particularly as his self-belief and perception of invincibility is a key component to his performances. If guys just consider themselves contenders etc they don't care so much about being KO'd, but when fighters believe themselves to be the best or are striving for that, it can be devastating mentally.

    Look at Groves, he was severely hampered by the big KO loss and I'd say it was a credit to his mental toughness that he overcame that, but he admitted it had a huge impact. And he's a lot more mentally stable than Fury, who was last seen about to drive his sports car off a bridge.

    Also, Paris was very upset about the Wilder fight and if Tyson got KO'd properly, she'd probably want him to retire. Then again, she knows boxing keeps him from driving off bridges, so that's a real hard one for her!

    Having said that, if Fury got KO'd, maybe he does manage to deal with it and just starts throwing caution to the wind and having exciting fights out of indifference, just as he went into that mode at the end of the Wilder fight (and Klit fight too actually), and many earlier ones.

    Not if there's someone out of shape and carrying an an injury ranked 15 by the WBC. Or a unification fight with Manual Charr is a possibility.
