    I always saw size as a key part of the Bowe package. Don't fancy him at all against a high quality giant.

    Yes a good SHW will beat a great HW. And a great SHW will beat a good SHW.

    Just talking nonsense about the current generation. He has a big chip on his shoulder.

    younger gen should never speak bad about the older gen either and vice versa. Many don't get the message though.

    Honestly, I think Fury wins. Bowe's best chance is either with his lead left, where he is outmatched in reach, or on the inside, where he is out-muscled by Fury and is also defensively porous.

    Bowe also had little in dynamic head movement and was caught with big shots by fighters who shouldn't have been catching him. He was also a lazy fighter. Fury IMO struggles most with skilled shorter fighters who work to their strengths, with dynamic head movement. Bowe fulfills none of that criteria, and Fury at his best would repeatedly catch him throughout the bout.

    Bowe puts his belt in the bin before fighting Fury.

    Fury dances his way to a ud with his length and skills, I don't think he beats Bowe on the inside though, Bowe had very good infighting skills for a big man

    Thinking about it with Fury's tank, he could get the tko late against Bowe

    Those picking Bowe have yet to describe to us how he beats Fury. He's not as quick as Fury, is out reaches and out bulked, doesn't punch hard enough to really hurt Fury. What has Bowe got that he beats Fury with ?

    if golota got his rightful 2 wins over bowe, didn’t mentally quit against grant, got his rightful decision against ruiz he would have a world class resume

    Good combination handspeed and a great inside game but you're right, a bigger guy with better movement and footwork is all wrong for Bowe. Bowe was never really mobile and didn't have great footwork, Fury would give him a ton of problems.
