    Correct, neither were.

    @fencik45 (massive fan of Eastern European fighters) thinks Fury cherrypicked 40-0 long-reigning KO artist Wilder, @BELLERS thinks Wilder cherrypicked 27-0 lineal champ Fury. The odds were close to even, Wilder was slightly favoured but it was basically a pickem. And if Fury didn't think he was well prepared to take the fight he would have had more tune-ups.

    The best just fought the best for a change and these haters can't accept it. Obviously neither man went in thinking they were going to lose, no champion fighter does.
    Pimp C and BELLERS like this.

    Fury-Wilder 1: one of the greatest rounds/moments (round 12, Fury somehow gets up, survives and then goes at Wilder) in heavyweight history

    Fury-Wilder 2: one of the greatest heavyweight performances, prior to the fight most believed that Fury attacking Wilder was a suicide mission

    Fury-Wilder 3: one of the greatest heavyweight fights; a seesaw, edge of your seat war where both men exhibited incredible toughness and courage

    It's right up there with the best heavyweight trilogies ever, possibly the most dramatic and edge of your seat (10 knockdowns).

    Fury isn't known to be a puncher, still has a decent KO ratio.

    Usyk landed 96 and 131 respectively in both Joshua fights - barely hurt him. Or 121 against Briedis and still won via thin MD.

    Briggs took 171 power punches from Vitali, which leaves us with two choices, according to someone's dumb logic: or there're exceptionally hard chins, or Vitali has feathers for fists.

    Gatti Ward was much more action packed. Technically not great fights, and with two overrated fighters. Exciting like WWF, for the fanfare, but not quality.

    One of the greatest trilogies ever and ranks right up there, three incredible fights.
