Boy, he can throw some nasty combinations.
Prime Mugabi deserves a mention
The all powerful Gypsy Lord is by FAR the most intimidating heavyweight of all time. A 6'11, 345 pound switch hitting power punching iron chin monster. No heavyweight in history stands a chance, not even the monster that is prime Vitali Klitschko
how on earth is Mike Tyson intimidating? He's 5'9", talks in a high pitched voice with a lisp.... anybody who had a half decent jab could box his head off.... and anyone who didn't buy the hype beat him...
Joe Frazier once said in 1972 that when Roberto Duran was pounding his opponent in the ring, he had the eyes of mass murderer Charles Manson, it scared Joe.
Sonny Liston. Not only was he built like a brick house and a bad mother in the ring, but he was an actual gangster in St. Louis before his career
Mike Tyson his whole game was intimidation, even now after all those changes I see him on HotBoxin high af and I'm still nervous he might go off on his guest
Younger George Foreman second, he looked mean as hell
Iron Mike Tyson.
Vitali retired because he knew Fury was coming for him
Vitali was terrified
Wilder definitely hits harder than Tyson and since he is perceived to have the poorest standard boxing skills (unlike Tyson who was thought to be well trained) his intimidation comes entirely from the power.
Consider that the Hearns knew Joshua had ko power and better skills but they were still terrified Wilder would KO their cash cow.
Wilder's style has been entirely based around ending the fight with a RH bomb!
That's just your reading of it in such a way that suits your agenda.
We've been through this before, but Fury was offered by Matchroom a collection of fights - a warm up, Bellew, Whyte, Joshua. We don't know what those terms were and Fury obviously didn't want to be second fiddle to AJ on Matchroom's roster. He went about it his own way and earned a 50/50 break whilst being a beltholder. It's obviously a better way to go about it. That doesn't mean his team didn't believe he can win - that's ludicrous really and is just what you want to think because of your strong dislike of Fury.
It's very easy to say his team could just "pay the step aside money" - but that's an exceptionally basic way of reading it. Without knowing all the terms of the arbitration how can we, on boxing24forum, speculate about that with any confidence. Perhaps Fury's team would rather fight Joshua after he's shaken off the inactivity.
Problem is Mitch it's a bit pointless debating this with you because all you'll do is ignore it and carry on repeating the same things!
Who voted for Tyson Fury?
Give me one great fighter George managed to intimidate during the golden era.
Replace Fury and ortiz with Charley Burley and jack dempsey.
