    he was too heavy


    he looked amazing in Wilder 2 and the Whyte fight...when he came in lighter, i mean it was good enough to get the win, but makes you wonder what the hell happened in training for Wilder 3... was he just not motivated...

    Wasn't impressive? He was horrible

    He had a 3 week camp after his kid literally died but thankfully was brought back

    His elbows were injured so he was unable to properly throw his jab

    He basically had to walk into Wilder and take nuclear bombs for breakfast

    But Fury is built different physically and mentally. Any other fighter would have pulled out of the bout.

    Wilder is a top 5 heavyweight. If he touches you, you will get hurt.

    40% for Baptism I
    80% for Baptism II
    60% for Baptism III

    100% Fury died after beating Wlad during the 2.5 years of industrial abuse and inactivity

    Having to endure seeing his jiggling love handles was painful but not as painful as the beatdown he put on Wilder.

    OP, as a lot of people are reporting, here, this is very old news and nothing mysterious.

    Fury from the 2nd Wilder bout is literally the best or very close best H2H heavyweight ever. Absolutely destructive, Wilder's face of shock from his jab was hilarious.

    Fury got up off the canvass twice and knocked Wilder TFO.
    Nothing impressive about that.
    A lot more than a certain guy who is praised endlessly on here.

    I watched that fight again last week, Fury got hit way more than I remembered, it was a great performance in its own way.
