    Gunna watch it this evening. Never thought I’d read a thread on here with people saying how Bunce/Paulie couldn’t get a word in!

    I think Haye had a fair point. Wilder will be better this time. He had no respect for Fury and thought he’d just roll over. He’s no master boxer but there will be a bit more method behind the madness this time.

    For me, the fight hangs on Fury’s chin. If he can get hit flush and his chin hasn’t deteriorated to the point he can’t hold a shot then it’s his fight to lose.

    John Fury is mental, I can see why BT had him on.

    He must drives views.

    Watched it today and had to laugh at all around the table crap scared of Big John Fury and the general unease at his presence.

    Brown tongues all round and Big John stole the show.

    Haye is a world class conman mate and his views are usually geared towards selling tickets or PPVs for whatever Broadcaster pays him for appearing. Pauli speaks more sense and Buncey total dross.

    He's entertainment, sometimes on a broadcast you need someone to entertain, leave the super articulation and in depth analysis to someone else on the panel. I would **** off either and all of Bellend, Paul Smith or Dave Coldwell from Sky for John Fury, gift of the gab, like father like son! The director might need to run on a delay and have the swear button at the ready though...lol!

    It was worth watching for me because it turned out to be one of the only times I have ever seen David Haye be a real person. Usually he makes me want to vomit with his arrogance and nonsense but he was surprising in this one.

    I used to dislike him for that same reason but he seems more down to earth and likeable since retiring.

    John Fury is too emotionally involved, obviously it is his son but he if cant give a balanced view dont have him on the show. Haye was speaking a lot of sense.

    Im telling you Wilder will stretch Fury out across the canvas.

    I'm also amused by the thought of two-weight former heavweight still in his 30's world champion David Haye being scared of a fat old man who had a nothing career.

    Life’s not all about the Queensbury Rules Tone.
    Touch gloves and may the best man win.
    I can see completely why some may be retisant to engage in a heated debate with big John.
