    Everyone saw how high usyk wore his shorts in his last fight

    his high shorts could be what saved him in his last fight it might have threw the ref off or unless the ref was corrupt and was gonna rule it low either way

    anyone else worried it might be a problem in fury fight too ? usyk complained to the ref after almost every body shot fury might get points taken off from him possibly dq !!!

    I'm more worried about the ref allowing Tyson to lay all over Usyk robbing us of a potentially great fight.

    High shorts , actoring a body shot as a low blow , trying to intentionally opening fury,s cut , actoring an injury to get some time or at least loose via a tko and not by being stopped . That i expect from usyk .

    Fury might lean an grab , maybe other things .

    Usyk’s trunks sit exactly where they should.

    A photo of Tyson parodying the wearing of high trunks isn’t any “evidence” to impugn Usyk.

    In fact, where Fury has his trunks hitched in the photo isn’t too far above where he himself normally has them sit.

    Self incrimination, much? :lol: Another case of Pot Pourri Fury calling the Ukranian Kettle Bell Destroyer black.

    Hit Fury just below the nips, and technically, you’re immediately in low blow territory.

    Though, if you did manage to actually find and hit doze tiny nutz, you might also want to go out and buy yourself a lottery ticket. :lol:

    Fairly sure he wore those in a previous fight.

    Usyk shorts were fine and his belly button was showing. The problem was, Dubois landed like 20 shots below the belt, including 1 that floored Usyk. But it was a illegal shot at the end of the day, so irrelevant.

    What's funny, it's Fury who ALWAYS keeps his shorts high. Higher than Usyk ever did.

    Usyk has a short torso, his shorts were fine

    Boxing needs a measurable rule of how high or low shorts can be. I sometimes have the impression the shorts are so high that punches to the body have a very restricted area to be landed due to high shorts.

    They both like their high shorts, it seems.
    They both fight pretty clean though, I think, if not antagonised.

    People exaggerate how dirty Fury fights, while loving Wlad's grappling reign of terror and the leaping headbutt against Fury. Fury typically boxes very clean actually. Look at Wilder I, for instance, that's his normal style.

    I think the biggest ref problem in this fight would be either some dumb deduction for a minor thing (like those nothing 'rabbit punches' in the clinch Fury got docked for in Germany against Wlad), yeah or an unintentional low blow, which might decide the fight, or some terrible early stoppage if someone starts landing a bunch of non-KO shots and/or one of them turtles up too long.

    I think it's the other way around. People criticized Klitschko a lot for clinching, calling him Clinchko etc. Fury himself made fun of his "jab nad grab style". But now, all of the sudden, when Fury jabs, 1-2s, clinches and put weight on his opponents, he's some sort of a genius. Look at a lot of the fight predictions: FURY IS A MASTER BOXER, HE WILL CLINCH, MAUL USYK AND PUT HIS WEIGHT ON HIM, THE GOAT! I wouldn't be surprised if Fury gives us Klitschko vs Povetkin type of performance. Watch his fanboys praise his brilliant strategy then.

    Beautiful punch
    If this was Fury, everyone would be calling it what it really was, a knockout

    Just gonna say it's Fury who usually looks like the fat kid that's wearing Dad's bathing trunks.
