    Just seen the presser for this. Think we'll definitely see a far different version of Fury to the Ngannou fight (although he did look like he'd been on the packet lol) and we often see the best version of Fury when he's being doubted.

    Think it definitely bothers him that he can't get under Usyk's skin with the mind games though. Usyk looks extremely relaxed and confident.

    Extremely tough fight to call imo and we can't draw much from their performance last time out. I think a lot depends on the ref as presumably Fury is going to try and clinch and maul Usyk to death on the inside using his size.

    Think I slightly favour Fury here but if he gets past the mid point without hurting Usyk then I think Usyk will take him into deep waters and maybe nick it at the end.

    Horrible feeling that we'll get a controversial decision and no rematch. Thank **** it's finally happening though.

    Fury definitely looks to be rattled. If he truly believed it's an easy fight, then he would have made the fight ages ago instead of ridiculous demands, and he wouldn't be so over the top with the aggression etc.
    Any time someone mentions Usyk, he goes off on one, whether that's refusing to fight him because he can't speak English, going on live radio to shout abuse or threatening to retire to avoid him. He ****ing knows he's in for a hell of a fight.

    I reckon Usyk outpoints him comfortably.

    I think that’s a fair shout. Fury will make it as awkward for Usyk as he can, and rightly so. I see a pretty dull fight with Fury having to smother, lean on and maul Usyk to break his rhythm and tire him. Really intriguing fight, but I can’t see it being a barn burner, by any stretch of the imagination.

    100%. Wilder has height but could easily get to cruiserweight if he wanted.
