    Fury sustained a horrendous cut early in that fight, and Wallin was in a hell of a lot better shape than Sanders ever was (and much bigger), threw punches for 12 rounds without gassing. It’s not a great comparison. You also can’t compare a pre-Steward Wlad with little in the way of defence to a slick, defensive master like Fury. It would look similar to the Chisora fight but Sanders wouldn’t last as long, he’d plod forward eating leather until his face looked like pedigree chum. It would be an absolute schooling from start to finish.

    A younger Klit should be more competitive . Not when Klit was getting stopped. It would be the Manny punch and grab period. But suppose Fury did a Wilder 2 rush on that Klit ? Might have been a problem for him. Hard to say.

    fury hasn’t lost? Wallin couldn’t win despite a horrendous cut. Wilder couldn’t beat fury on his 3rd fight of a weight loss comeback that included two awful warmups against seferi and pianeta.

    wlad fell to bits numerous times. Mentally and physically.

    vitali quit against Byrd and lost his passing of the torch against old fat Lennox

    It's a real shame if we don't get to see Wallin fight some decent men this year...

    He got his big payday but now anyone who wants to make a name for themselves won't go near him. HIGH RISK low reward.

    He's only 29 and has a long slog ahead of him if he wants to become somebody at HW.

    He might dissapear after taking his paycheck like so many do. Miller will when he gets his.

    He's going to get Tony Thompson'd. Another big southpaw that was actually pretty good that nobody wanted anything to do with for years. The division will just pretend he doesn't exist.

    You're probably right, but today there are many heavyweights who have top level amateur experience who have been in with southpaws. They might be willing to fight him. In the past, Wallin definitely would have been "ignored." Today, there are other southpaws around and most fighters have some experience fighting or at least sparring them. But Wallin at 6-6, 235, and southpaw is not likely to be on anybody's most wanted opponent list.

    I was impressed that Fury was willing to fight Wallin, it shows the mental strength and confidence of Fury to fight a guy like that when he wasn't forced to.
