    The facts are that Wilder was embarrassed in both fights. Yes, he won two rounds.

    It is astonishing that it took the Wild-tards (not saying you...you seem good), less than a week to come up with the rubbish that will allow them to believe that Wilder will win a third. When you drone on about "insecurity," you are talking about yourself. This is called "projection."

    Last week, Wilder fought a healthy Fury for the first time, did not win ten consecutive seconds, got stopped by a guy he called "pillowfisted," and blamed his costume. He should be ashamed, not of the loss, but of the excuses.

    Suddenly? Many of us with an eye on here called it from day one. There's a reason for it not being exposed sooner though and that's the pathetic level of opposition that Wilder had on the way up as well as during his fraudulent title reign.

    Oh how times change. Look at that graph. I wonder if Wilder on points was less voted than Fury KO in previous polls.

    The third fight will be even worse for Wilder because he’s unraveling mentally, and it’s too late in the game for him to start becoming Sugar Ray Leonard.Plus Fury will have more time with Sugar Hill and Andy Lee which will be even more beneficial to him.

    IF Fury keeps his head on straight AND his weight under control then yeah stoppage. Will admit Fury has me a little concerned talking about retirement. If his head isn’t in the game now then it will play out like the first one.

    Wilder will be better then his last performance and has a puncher’s chance. He has never been in this role before and his new level of hunger and determination will be intriguing elements going into the trilogy.

    I’m not counting out Wilder at all.

    With that being said, I have it Fury 70/30

    Wilder lasted 7 rounds , I don’t see why he can’t go another 5 being more prepared and better offense to keep Fury off him for 4 rounds ? I think Fury by UD in a closer fight where he has to dodge impact shots for a handful of rounds but will still maintain ring domination, maybe Wilder wins a round or two ?

    Everyone is counting out Wilder and I'm not sure that's right.

    I think one of the big reasons for Fury's massive success is that he completely caught Wilder off guard by coming forward -- Wilder was totally unprepared.

    But now, "the cat's out of the bag."

    Wilder will likely spend all his time focusing on preparing for an aggressive Fury -- maybe it won't be so easy for Fury this time.

    Even if Wilder is prepared this time for Fury to assault him from the first bell, the difference in skill between them is just too great for Wilder to be much more successful. I predict something similar to Liston v Patterson. Liston absolutely battered Patterson in the first round of the first fight. Patterson went away, regrouped, trained, came back and managed to last slightly longer in the first round of their second fight.

    Look, I like Wilder - he’s always fun to watch, and he’s kinda goofy and dramatic. And with a punch like that he’s always good value.

    But he has never shown the ability to deviate in the slightest from plan A - that’s literally the only thing he has ever done in every fight. He can be losing badly and still stick to Plan A. And more often than not it bails him out - which is his main problem in the long run.

    He’s not gonna come into the third fight with any new game plan whatsoever if history has taught us anything. It will be plan A over and over again, and fingers crossed for the big eraser. It’s not gonna work against someone like Fury. And especially with tacticians like Hill and Lee advising him.

    It’s a shame cos there’s a lot of matchups I would love to see Wilder in, to rebuild and come back. Whyte, Ruiz, the winner of Joyce/Dubois (at some point), maybe even a Hunter fight would be viable. Joshua I would still love to see him face (after Fury vs Joshua regardless of outcome). But having him get beaten for a third time (come on, we all know he lost the first fight) against Fury is just gonna mentally ruin him.

    I like him, but let’s be realistic. He’s a fun fighter, who brings danger - but he’s severely outmatched against someone as complete as Fury.

    I'm not sure why people keep going on about this, as if they have only followed Tyson Fury for a year.

    He has been talking about retirement since he was 24. He has also been talking about having a long career since then, too. That's his personality and he likes winding people up.
