    Usyk will be good a very long time because he is never out of shape. It is the sharp weight gains and losses that kill you, because it ruins your muscle, heart and degrades the joints.

    Fury on the other hand is nearing the end because...well...yo-yo dieting, cocaine, maybe PEDs, booze, etc.

    The longer this goes on, the longer it favors Usyk.

    he will be remembered as very sharply paralleling Riddick Bowe in terms of record, achievements, and ducks. He'll be in the lower end of the top 15 and falling as time goes on.

    Paris Fury will be remembered for the 'Meet the Furys' TV programme and her workouts.

    the failed steroid test, the comedy attempt to bribe a farmer, the backdated ban, the loss to Mcdonnell, the barely literate attempt to quote the bible, the homophobia, the misogyny, the coke habit, the friendship with a cartel leader, the embarrassing father.

    fantastic boxer, one of our greatest ever. but an appalling human being.

    The Chisora trilogy and beating Big Marty Rogan who Audley Harrison is quoted as saying was "hard as nails."

    A man who has spent most of his career calling his opponents shithouses and dossers, yet becomes the biggest shithouse dosser of them all for ducking Usyk.
    For all his faults but at least Bellew had the balls to get in and had a ****ing go at Usyk.
    Joshua Twice, **** fury from now on for me.

    I'll give it until the saudi's can possibly host at a later date this year first before running my mouth, we have no real clue of what's going with it all at the moment with all the bluster.

    Just holding off for that prince money, baby.


    We'll see!

    I'm a little bit worried. At 36, Holyfield was complaining about arthritis and he was noticeably past his peak. I think Usyk would have smashed Fury on April 29, and would have been slightly favored against a fit Fury, but I doubt Usyk sticks around for longer than a year

    not to forget the multiple incidences of domestic violence

    Bowe was convicted of the February 1998 kidnapping of his estranged wife Judy, and their five children. Thinking it would reconcile his marriage, Bowe went to his wife's

    home and threatened her with a knife, handcuffs, duct tape, and

    home. During the kidnapping, Bowe stabbed his wife in the chest. Police captured Bowe in South Hill, Virginia, freeing his family. Bowe agreed to a plea bargain of guilty to "interstate domestic violence", and was sentenced to 18 to 24 months in prison. Despite the agreed sentence, on February 29, 2000, the judge sentenced Bowe to only 30 days, due to a claim of brain damage by Bowe's defense. This sentence, counter to the plea agreement, was later overturned. Bowe served 17 months in Federal prison. On February 8, 2001, Bowe was arrested in

    The Saudis could have staged it now hence Usuyk accepting his deal.

    The myth that the Saudis had no venue ready is a lie Warren is running with.

    If he wasn’t a heavyweight nobody would give a Tom tit about him.He’s fortunate along with many others to be around in this era.

    If his epic mental health struggles are to be believed, I honestly think Fury will be remembered for what happens after he retires..
