    People on here seem to think this bout will be a war with stamina and chins bejing a huge factor but I feel the first half of the bout will be like Wilder v Fury 1 with cagey jabbing on the outside until the first knockdown, look at the Pulev fight. So I`ve added a poll asking whether there`s a good chance this bout will go the distance.

    A fight could always go the distance but both men motivated to have a definitive win so excellent chance of a knockout. In terms of AJ we know his power is constant as he knocks people out early, middle rounds and late. You would think going the distance is what should suit Fury but the way he talks now he thinks he is some massive indestructible puncher so he is likely to go for it. My official prediction if Fury comes out Kronk style he get clipped inside 3 rounds but if he sticks to a boxing chess match he gets clipped like BJS between rounds 8-10 but he definitely gets clipped.

    I think it will. I see Fury boxing on the outside against Joshua because that's where he has the clear advantage. I see Joshua maybe scoring a knockdown but Fury surviving it, and how many knockdowns Joshua will be able to score is up for debate.

    I see it easily going to the cards personally.

    I think fury outboxes AJ from range over the first half of the right, wears him out and takes him out in rounds 10-12, could see it going the distance though

    I think AJ will KO him between 5-7 rounds

    I predict a cautious AJ reminiscent of Ruiz II, but with Fury certainly being more aggressive than Ruiz was. I'm gonna guess that joshua will barely outscore fury over 12, or else it's a draw. No knockdowns. I hope i'm completely wrong though, and it's an absolute slugfest.

    I see Fury taking the fight to AJ like he did with Wilder II, I fancy Fury to KO AJ by R3.

    I see it the opposite...if Fury is on the front foot AJ will mull him

    Fury will revert to what he does best, outjabbing for points and showboating to take rounds. A lot of rounds where Fury lands 5 jabs and AJ lands 2 jabs plus a right hand, leading to controversial scoring. Some brief spurts of intense action where a KO could happen will be randomly scattered through the fight.

    I think it's likely to go the distance.

    It has a pretty good chance of going the distance. As a matter of fact it has a pretty good chance of ending up being a tie as well. Might put some money on that

    It will go the distance. It will also be a draw on the scorecards (or possibly a blatant robbery). Boxing is too corrupt to let this have a definitive answer with only one stab at the well.

    Every chance.

    I think Fury will start slow, move AJ around a bit let him burn some energy stick and jab and the odd right hand look to smother in close and then move again.
    I think Furys game plan will be different to Wilder 2 he won't want to try and push AJ onto the back foot early, he will be happy win rounds and make AJ use his feet at least in the first 3 rounds or so deplete the gas tank before trying to landed bigger shots later in the fight.

    Joshua has to disrupt Fury cut the ring off, nice and tight in defence but has to be accurate and land with consistent pressure to make Fury hold his feet.

    That being said if it gets into jab fest or generally untidy if neither can impose them self on the other. We may find they are both cautious and then we could be in for 12 rounds.

    Fury outboxed Vladimir Klitschko. He can easily outbox robotic AJ. The fact that AJ got beaten up and stopped by Andy Ruiz will only make him more tentative and easier to outbox. He will be biting big time on feints.

    If Fury can blend the two styles he's shown in each Wilder fight, this should be an easy night for him. I still don't think Joshua will ever be the fighter he was before getting KO'd. Humiliating defeat.

    It'll go the distance if Fury wants it to IMO. After seeing Joshua getting flattened the first time against the little chubby kid from the movie "Up" the first time and then running like a frightened fawn the second, I can't make the wild leap of imagination some of you can to see Joshua as some killer against anyone anymore. Much less a nasty, serious guy like Fury with world class skills. One sided fight in my mind and Joshua stays upright at Fury's discretion.
