    After you've persistently labelled him as a coward etc, do you really expect people to read your breakdown of the fight?

    He did a complete psyche job on Wlad.

    I don't really care if people read or take seriously my words. I just put the reality of the events out there, so the truth is laid bare.

    When Fury declined 50/50 offer to fight the immediate rematch after undertaking interviews stating that he was going to fight wilder and telling wilder not to run away from the fight. Obviously the same way AJ was called a coward for declining 50 million so he could fight povetkin, I would think it was fair to call Fury at the time a coward for walking away from a rematch. Not to mention what looked like Fury signing with a tv network which would make it difficult to fight the other two heavyweights.

    Obviously now for one reason or another, most likely due to the backlash received he's looked back on it and realized it would be in his best interest to fight Wilder again in a rematch, which I commend him for.

    We should therefore rejoice, that Fury has redeemed himself and risen to the challenge at hand.

    He is fighting Tom Schwarz after Wilder. I think this proves he is a coward.

    To be fair, it's wise of him to get in a fight before fighting Wilder again.

    He will be given opportunity to brush up his on his defense, try new things without any pressure and have time to mentally prepare himself to get back in the ring with the most fearsome puncher of the division.

    This is why it's a fallacy to think he schooled or completely outboxed Wilder and won comfortably. If that were the case he would not require additional preparation to repeat a feat.

    If Fury, genuinely felt he was robbed, he would have been chopping at the bit to get back in the ring immediately and make right of the situation, similar to such fighters who were genuinely robbed of victory such as GGG, Kovalev, Lewis and most recently Persoon.

    We know deep down behind Fury's attempts to manipulate and brainwash those who worship him into believing he was victorious, he knows he was fortunate to escape with a draw on his record.

    I respect that. But I suspect that Fury and his father is hugging and shaking hands with Tom Schwarz. I just can't believe this Fury guy is genuine, he seems like he and his father are arranging and fixing his matches.

    He's openly said on numerous occasions, that his team (Arum, Warren and ESPN) made the decision to try and raise his profile in the U.S. before going for the rematch.

    Labelling him as a coward because he didn't immediately rematch him was just ridiculous.

    When they fight next year, you're going to look very silly if any of these threads get bumped.

    For labelling him as a coward and hating on him.

    How many posts did you make last month?

    You spent hours of your time ripping him apart.

    Thanks for the clarification (bolded text).

    Of active heavyweights today Fury is the best at getting inside fighters' heads and figuring out what makes them tick. He does this time and again, and it's very easy to spot by listening to his interviews and head to heads. I noticed it in the buildup to the Wlad fight and was so impressed that I picked him to win the fight against all my better judgements (I hadn't picked anyone to beat Wlad since 2005). I also recognised it in the Wilder fight, which is why I gave him a great chance to beat Wilder as well.

    You could argue that others were historically better at the psychological aspect than he is, but only Usyk I'd say is his equal at figuring opponents out, as Usyk mostly does it in the ring.

    I've already addressed the coward comment and given praise where it's due for his willingness to press forward with the rematch.

    The criticism at the time, was very much warranted. There is no reason why he should be criticized any further.

    We now move on and see who proves to be the best man in the rematch.

    How could anybody say it's just a myth?

    He had Wlad swearing.

    He had him shaving his hair.

    He had him hesitant in the ring.

    Wlad didn't know what to do with him.

    Tyson made him so uncomfortable.

    I'm not sure really. Tyson very obviously got into his head and had him seeing double (as the Queen song goes).
