    Resumes don't win fights, gypsies do

    He deserves to be underrated if he’s really trying to make the 3rd Chisora fight.

    Fury is far from underrated, he's grossley overrated. Not to the degree AJ was from 2016 to June 1st 2019, but very overrated.

    The fact is; there are many heavyweights who would give Fury hell but he won't fight them because of economics. Styles make fights and just because Fury is undefeated and someone like Michael Hunter looked terrible in his last fight doesn't mean that Hunter stands no chance. I actually think that someone underrated like Hunter or a puncher like AJ would could stop Fury or out point him.

    Usyk, AJ, Hrgovic, Hunter, Parker, Joyce, Sanchez etc on any given night any of these fighters could defeat Fury

    The resume critisms are understandable but H2H he's a problem for most if not all ATGS

    The opposite.

    Some.people on here are saying he has a better record than Lewis and AJ is absurd.

    Furys two most notable wins are Wlad and Whyte (both great wins). Then two decent but non top quality HWs in Chisora and Wilder.

    Bookmark the date. Mitch room algorithm formula calculates Wilder as "decent". I'm going for a lie down.

    He's beaten two... maybe three very good fighters?

    Head to head I rate him as a top 5 ATG. But that has to be backed up by accomplishments. Right now he has to have one of the weakest resumes ever for someone considered in ATG discussions.

    He beat Chisora in the rematch almost 8 years ago now. In the time since hes beaten Wlad, Wilder, and I guess if you want to count him for some reason, Whyte.

    In 8 years.

    Thats ridiculous.

    That there will be 'reasons' why that is, doesnt take away from the fact that its hard to 'underrate' someone with that level of competition.

    In between fights he always is. He's probably partially to blame himself because of general inactivity between them all, but these fools write him off all the time or at least say he's not a great etc then he goes out and displays true greatness every time and the same people still don't learn. I gave up trying to teach it long ago. This is one of the most special fighters the division has seen. Without a doubt

    This. A lot of pure boxing fans myself included love Usyk. Some think Usyk is a God like figure but make no mistake Fury starts as favourite over him if they ever do fight and my money would be on Fury.
