    I think the fact he was making silly mistakes was what i was worried about.
    I wanted to see him switched on..and taking the fight to his opponent. What we saw was him forcing stuff.
    The guy has been sparked in no time by low tier fighters. Tyson neess rounds but he took plenty of left hooks last night and after round 5 or 6 was there any point his jab wasn't able to keep his opponent off.

    It was poor last night if he was just using it as a glorified training session then fine to a point...but is like to him against a high class fighter and really dominate. All that fight did was raise more questions....and this is from someone who s always thought he beats wilder and joshua

    He uses footwork to keep them off.

    The thing is, with Tyson Fury, based on his previous performances and wins, the vast majority of us picked Wladimir Klitschko to beat him.
    Tyson Fury and Peter Fury both said (before he beat Klitschko) there was nothing strictly on his record or in his previous fights performances to rationally make Fury the favourite, but that he would do so anyway.
    He raises his game, he adapts to his opponents.

    He won every round easily last night and showed a lot of different moves, threw a lot of punches and showed stamina. But, of course, that means nothing, I agree, because of the opponent. There was nothing he could have done against Pianeta that would mean anything at all regarding a huge step up to someone like Wilder.
    But the positive thing is that Tyson Fury is actually making progress. He looked vastly better last night than he did 10 weeks earlier against Seferi.
    I just can't write this guy Fury off any more.
    I still would probably expect Wilder to win. But I wouldn't be surprised if Fury pulls out something special for that fight and comes away with the belt.

    He did look good most of the time 20. There's a lot of positives to take away from last night but as we both saw, he made quite a lot of silly and I mean silly mistakes. Most of them mistakes, if not all can be attributed to switching off. I mean if I was to go to Tyson this morning with a list of technical aspects we saw him doing wrong, I'm sure he'd agree with every one of them. Tyson does know this stuff better than anyone. but each time he switched off or moved for the sake of moving he put himself in vulnerable positions. Last night he got away with it, against wilder he won't.
    Going off last night's performance and the seferi performance I don't think he's quite ready yet mate, that's not to say he never will be.
    Tbf to fury, he will approach the wilder fight somewhat different to last night. You would expect him to be far more cautious, look to keep it long, something like the klit fight
