    If Fury loses, then AJ v Fury becomes a strong possiblity.

    This is still the potential to be the biggest fight in British boxing history

    Think that ship has sailed tbh. If they’re both coming off defeats with no belts on the line it won’t be half as big.

    Don’t be daft.

    And Fury will lose I feel. He’s mentally not the strongest and his head seems to of already gone.

    It would be an embarrassment for British boxing if he lost.

    I'm not sure how a Briton losing the heavyweight title is ever 'best for British boxing'.

    Rubbish.

    Wilder was ****ing bitching about the gloves again, not sure how anyone can say Fury isn't in the fight mentally and Wilder is.

    Wilder does fighting. When the going gets tough Fury disappears.

    That makes no sense.

    He's won all of his biggest bouts on away soil and as the consensus underdog. Surely he would have shat it against Klitschko in 2015 - considering it must have been reasonably tough to dethrone a 10-year champion, in Klitschko's venue of choice, with all sorts of shenanigans regarding gloves and canvases.

    He's also been down against multiple opposition and has risen from the canvas to win.

    He's bounced back from obesity, alcoholism, cocaine abuse and whatever else, to throw himself straight back into the frying pan in America in 2018, being robbed, to then school Wilder in 2020, in America, as the underdog.

    Both have proved they are fighting men by taking these 3 fights and Fury rose from the canvas in round 12 when I had the fight over.

    Too many people jump on these sites & spout such nonsense I wonder if its just attention seeking, this is a prime example. Show 1 example of Fury going missing in the ring when the going gets tough?

    I would rather watch Fury in one top level contest every 5 years than to watch him face "top 10" puddings.
