    :facepalm: Fury was controlling him.

    Wilder is an offensive fighter. Fury is a defensive fighter.

    Fury boxed his ears off for 95% of the night

    Fury landed four jabs a round. And he was floored twice. And Fury's face was a jacked up mess.

    And Fury is a half a foot taller than Foreman. Which is what we're talking about.

    Wilder controls the distance just fine. He's excellent at it.

    Obviously a prime Foreman hospitalises Wilder.

    Fury whooped him and Wilder was give the draw.

    And we're talking weak-as-a-baby fat farm Fury. Only reason Wilder fought him is because of how bad he'd looked. Wobbling fat on another man's midriff seems to excite Wilder :deal:

    No we're not. We're talking about a Fury who fought the best fight of his life. We're talking about a Fury who - after a year of training and two comeback wins - was in better shape for Wilder than he has for any fight in the past six years except for the Klitschko outing.

    Hell, he was nearly 10 pounds heavier for Schwarz than he was for Wilder.

    Get your head in the game. You just keep regurgitating insults that aren't based on reality.

    And young Foreman, old Foreman, no version of Foreman was as tall or rangy or moved like Fury.

    Wilder controls the distance just fine. Your comment that Wilder is bad at controlling the distance was simply wrong.

    He's just shed like 100lb trying to stop waddling around like a seal. He hadn't boxed for years and had been doing coke prior to his comeback like there was a special on it by the pound. He looked god-awful against a super-shot Pianeta who'd done nothing for years. Boxing against Wilder made him look good, I'll give you that much.

    We should make a list of Notable Fat And Old Men Wilder Has Fought. It may take a while ;)

    Quite right. He'd move straight into Wilder, take his space away and mallet him like he's never been malleted before. Foreman was not a long distance cutie like Fury. Foreman was a close-up slugger and he didn't spend his life feasting on pastry chefs and soccer hooligans.

    Wilder is easy to hit and has little footwork. What you see as "controlling distance" is his opponents being wary of his massive right hand, which is something that I will acknowledge.

    Absolute Truth....a 33 Year old Ali to take on a 24 Year old Monster in Foreman and Tko him....take note in 72 Fights or so it was the only time Big George was TKOd...that fight itself pushed Ali into Legendary status...no one ever could do that to Foreman...even when he was fighting at 46 no one could Tko Him.!!!!

    He hit Holyfield so hard and still couldn't knock him down like Bowe did.

    It seems like you did not read my post properly. I said that Wilder's height give him so many advantages and if he was 6'3 instead of being 6'7 he would not have the same power.

    Foreman avoided Bowe and Lewis for a reason in the 90s.

    I dont know if Big George got or not skills of a monster..but two things are sure....1) many punchers have tried to throw him down...nothing! Only Alì and Lyle made it! Ali cause was Ali, Lyle cause Big George had a bad day at the office..after those..nobody!
    2) Big George had that particular uppercut and those straight hands not particularly fast that didnt hurt like for example the bombs throwing by Tyson or Shavers but that however provoked drowsiness and deep daze. Thats why has one of the highest percentage of KOs inflicted and one of the lowest percentage of KOs suffered.
    For me is one of the greatests...in a certain way a monster.
