    I re-watched the fight again, and although Fury won it, Wilder missed on a few haymakers mostly because Fury wasn't standing still or trading often.

    The winner of the re-match is up to Fury. If he fights the same way, he should win. If he opts to slug and go for the KO, he could very well get caught.

    I'm not buying this Fury is going to try to knock Wilder out business, but if that is what Fury presses for besides just letting it happen, I'm changing my pick to Wilder.

    Official pick still Fury via UD.

    You can take everything Fury says with a pinch of salt. He always claims he will KO his opponents pre fight, nothing new there.

    He wants Wilder to look for the KO and get sloppy. Allowing him to look good.

    The smart pick is still Fury via UD. If he fights sensible this time, and drops the clowning, and concentrates. I doubt that Wilder is given an opening over the course of 36 minutes.

    And the NEW Lineal Heavyweight Champion of the World ...

    Fury already fought the best fight of his career against a Wilder who was having one of his worst nights ... and Fury couldn't do it.

    Fury won't be as good this time. Wilder will be heavier and sharper (having just fought a little over two months ago).

    Wilder early. Simple as that.

    Fury will earn a unanimous decision and get the majority decision. A late stoppage is not out of the question.

    This will be shockingly easy for Wilder. The only one that made the adjustments in the first fight was Wilder, Fury has no adjustments left to make. But I understand, people like deluding themselves and looking for a silver lining to hang their hat on, even when one isn't there.

    People that predict H.Fury or T.Fury to win via KO got some issues in my opinion, both are featherfisted fighters. Get over it please.
    It will be either T.Fury on points or Wilder KO.

    You can thank that little ****e Hayden panettiere for that, even past it Wlad physically could've ko'd Fury he just wasn't right mentally and then every ones running round matching him up with past greats and completely over rating his style and capabilities. He should've done even better v Wilder if he was that good. Hes not Heavyweight Champ material imo

    That sounds like the wonderful world of boxing that we know and love. There's probably one judge of the three that would give Wilder the decision even if he was lay on the canvas for the duration. Some klnd of controversy to leave the door open to fight 3 is probably a good bet.

    Fury wins & Wilder asks for a rubbermatch, would you be down for a trilogy?

    Disagree, I think Fury looked terrible against Wilder that night.

    You know how the Queen has two birthdays, an official one and her real one?

    Well @Mendoza gets two picks. It's just the way it is round these parts. Don't start any trouble about it, he runs with a pretty rough crowd. Best to just move on pardner and keep that head down. You have yourself a nice day now.
