    Did he look gassed to you at any time of the fight? Where the hell does he get that endurance from? unreal... also was anyone surprised how much "snap" Fury had? that snap, even in the 11th round, when he landed that cross!!

    as a fury fan i always think he will lose but the dude always wins and i thought he was tired but this was a tiring fight and he dug really deep

    back in the day i thought klit would beat him despite the fact i was a huge fan

    guess i need to stop doubting the gypsy king.

    Fury is a fighting man who fights at his natural weight and trains hard
    Blown up dossers like aj and deontard don't have that natural stamina, just not built for it

    I think he didnt take it seriously, and was still recovering from Covid and didnt have the proper training camp.

    Conditioning obviously below par for this fight.
    Stamina weirdly great...

    I think if you were to stick him on a treadmill or a rowing machine he'd probably flag and tire out much sooner than you'd expect. I don't think he has particularly good stamina, what he's great at is being very relaxed in the ring and able to conserve his energy as well as control the pace of the fight. While others are working he's clinching and chipping away at your stamina by using his weight against you, so even if you have better stamina than Fury by the later rounds your gas tank is empty and his is still pretty full because he's expended so little energy.

    He could have fought another 11 rounds.

    He wanted to KO wilder in the 12th unfortunately wilder couldn't stand up to it.

    Fury has been in better shape than that in prior fights, but his stamina was still on point. He looked the fresher fighter for most of the fught and moved and bounced well on his feet. But if he wants to beat Usyk, he better trim down a bit.

    In terms of all out endurance he probably has good endurance but conditioning is different that's being able to maintain a higher level of exertion for a sustained period. That's where he'd probably crash. So yeah run at 10 min mile pace he probably has Wilder and Joshua gasping and on their knees well before he's done but 400-800m intervals with a short rest period and Fury would struggle badly.

    Fury seems to have an innate ability to draw on his reserves, as needed.

    But, I would hope he's going to aim at achieving something closer to his 2020 form, in his next outing, whoever that's against.

    He looked like a teletubby muffin-top man. Shades of Lucas Browne.

    Very stiff and upright in those early rounds as well. Lacked the looseness I've come to expect of him. Had to turn the fight into a maul and brawl to get the win since his sharpness and general movement weren't there.

    I thought there was a lot of ringrust due to his inactivity. Hardly looked sharp and usually his boxing radar for incoming punches is better. But Tyson got better as the bout went on and it was the other guy deteriorating at a faster clip.
