    People who fought or sparred both AJ and Fury all said AJ hits harder. Don't know about Dubois tho.

    I dont think he'll KO him but it will be a closer points win for Fury. Talking 1 or 2 rounds in it.

    To clarify I was referencing Chisora.

    There are two things I like about this video:

    1. He is back in the gym, starting preparations for December.
    2. He acknowledges his loss, no more of that 'I was robbed because of what's going on in Ukraine' nonsense.

    Let's hope both of these things stay this way. I don't want to hear any Fury fans claiming that he won the fight. The man acknowledged the loss here without ifs or buts, stating that he is preparing to avenge it.

    Obviously, anyone can hit the heavy bag for a few seconds and make a PR video to appear as if they're living the athlete's lifestyle. Time will tell if Fury is ready to drop the binge drinking sessions and seriously put in the work for December, becoming the absolute best version of himself he can be physically, mentally, and emotionally. I certainly hope he can and will do that. I don't want him to chicken out or, even worse, show up in subpar form. As strange as it sounds, I'm now rooting for the man to be as fine-tuned and sharp as he can possibly be as an athlete by December.

    Writing him off is foolish. Almost as foolish as not acknowledging that Usyk is the better fighter and that's why Fury lost to him.

    You are still in the excuses/bargaining phase. He lost because of the showboating, because of this, that, and the other. These factors didn't help him (apart from the showboating, he did that exactly because he wanted to make an impression on the gullible casuals and the judges that he is actually dominating and in control), but ultimately that's not why he lost. He lost because he fought a better fighter.

    The attitude you need here, mate, is this: "My guy was beaten by a better fighter, but if my guy puts in the work and shows up in the best possible shape, he might have a chance. The other guy is still the favourite as he is the better fighter who has lived the Spartan lifestyle and is already preparing for the fight himself. So, the task is monumental, but if my guy does everything he possibly can, he might have a chance."

    I would worry about the mental faculties of anyone who couldn't see that - totally different levels of power (and on resumes comparable enough to not make comparison farcical).

    Was a good fight and i thought both looked good. I gave fury 4 rounds but thought he put in a good effort.
    Coming into the fight, I didn’t think usyk would survive 8 rounds.

    Agreed
    He won't win, but he has accepted his loss. Now let's see if he can prove everyone wrong and make it a fight

    He will.lose, but I think he will give a good account before running out of gas and getting stopped in rounds 7-8

    If he can avoid a knockdown, he might actually win a decision. I don't think he can legitimately win a decision over Usyk. But if he can win 5 rounds and last the distance, the judges might actually give him 7 rounds. I think that's his plan. To try to win 5 rounds and last the distance and hope judges score in his favour.

    Amusing how some are treating the KD in round 9 as if it was an abstract event, devoid of context, occurring within a vacuum.

    From that flawed platform, they then deduce round 9 as having changed the fight. Lol. The fight shouldn’t have actually seen a round 10.

    The pummelling in round 9 was something that Usyk had been building and working toward, especially from and including round 7 and after - Usyk had already clearly hurt Fury late in round 8.

    But damn you fickle Boxing Gods, if ONLY Usyk hadn’t hit Fury as hard and clean as often as he did, Fury may well have nicked the points. :rolleyes:

    Where’s the important message at any rate?

    I thought the vid was was going to be Fury giving a lecture on the evils of alcohol.

    Clickbait.

    Exactly. The strafing left cross he caught Fury with he'd already caught him with several times in the past two rounds, and the tide was already turning before the ninth. You could feel it was only a matter of time before Usyk connected with a big one. All of Fury's confidence and swagger looked to be leaching out of him. He looked hurt, and tired, and concerned. Usyk knew exactly what he was doing. He's not a fighter that relies on landing a lucky shot. Everything builds upon what came before.
