    Press conference on Wednesday. I wonder what the PPV price will be. I expect Fury to win this one on points.

    Fully expect him to hit Usyk as low as he thinks he can get away with, as early as possible. He'll have to get close enough first.

    Fury’s last performance has scrambled my radar for the fight game.

    My conclusion from that Ngannou fight is that Fury is shot to bits.

    the question becomes, can a shot to bits Fury roughhouse USKY the way he was unable to roughhouse Ngannou; which led to him getting exposed.

    USKY couldn’t crack an egg, Ngannou can bang.

    Fury has fifty pounds on USKY so you’d have to fancy him to gypsy roughhouse him on the inside.

    when he tried that sht with FRANCIS he quickly realised he was up against a twenty stone unit of a GRAPPLER.

    fury’s legs are shot.
    His timing looks gone
    His speed has gone,

    Fury’s only plan has to be the twenty stone gypsy tank head down face first walk the little midget cruiserweight down and maul him to a stoppage plan.

    Cunningham II.

    Does the little midget cruiser have the heart? He was looking for a way out when DDD folded him like a deckchair for FIVE whole minutes.

    I have no idea how to pick this one.

    My GUT instinct says a shot Fury just about mauls him to death then retires on the spot.

    Barry Hearns will be sniffing round the bins out the back to fish out a discarded vacant belt for AJ to fight some bum for.

    I don't get the whole "midget cruiserweight" thing with Usyk. He was 16 stone against Joshua on the scales. He gave away about 25 pounds or so, and maybe AJ doesn't fight 'big' like Fury can, but Usyk wasn't overawed. In the first fight he was 30 seconds from a KO win. Holyfield was lighter against Lewis and nobody called him a midget or a middleweight. It's just odd.

    Does Fury not have a 50lbs weight advantage on little USKY?

    Of course he does. Valuev had 100 pounds on Haye. Did it make any real difference? Usyk is a heavyweight plain and simple. He's not fought at cruiser for years.

    All about tactics on the night, and right now for me the fight is 50-50 until seeing how they limber up in fight week. I posted on here (ridiculed by some) that Fury looked in awful shape even at the press conference. Turned out he really was.

    That’s what the “midget cruiser” bit refers to, Fury has fifty pounds on the little guy.

    Also Haye is probably the hardest punching cruiser in history, USKY cannot take the skin off a rice pudding.

    Size matters so much in boxing, it baffles me when people try to discount it at heavy.

    It baffles me that people think a fast, skilful boxer won't know how to play it. Size will count if Fury gets to use it.

    If Fury turns up in shape and with his head screwed on, the size will count. If he turns up in Ngannou shape and Usyk is on his game, the size will count far less.

    A good big one beats a good small one but is Fury a good big one anymore?

    Fury feels like he is cashing out on boxing for the last 2 years. Wilder took a piece of his soul. Usyk is still hungry and ice cold.

    Usyk wide UD for me

    Usyk wide UD or stoppage. Fury is shot to bits and Usyk will be rubbing his hands in anticipation of facing him.

    Before fury’s last fight I saw this going a boring jab jab grab fury points win but after his last outing I’m picking usyk to win and see him dropping fury a few times.

    Does usyk have the power to drop him a few times? he rarely plants and throws bombs, I’m going usyk points. Need a strong ref cause I think fury going to try clinch for 12 rounds
