Where does the "Fury has no power" myth come from?

    Coming into the second wilder fight, fury had 20 knock outs in 30 fights. These haters act like tyson fury went from malignaggi power to huge punching power over night.

    Stopped Hammer and retired Chisora in the second fight. Only man to stop Cunningham.

    Fury the man the myth the legend.

    His old man said he looked weak as a kitten vs Wallin, Fury tried his hardest to get him out of there once he was cut but Wallin wasn’t visibly hurt and came back in the 12th to hurt Fury.

    Since the Wilder demolition he’s been massively overrated imo will be interesting to see if he continues this Kronk KO style in his next bout.

    Those stoppages were due to an accumulation of shots

    Im refering to the two catchweight referenced . and no fury stoppage of wilder was a huge improvement of power. I mean do you really expect fury to weigh 270 lbs all the time just to main tain that power . there is a reason that was a career high weight.

    Because he fought early in his career as a boxer, and that it how boxers show power.

    Yes, but it doesn't matter. He has power. He just used it differently in different fights. But the guy was never featherfisted, is the point.

    What happened in the Wilder rematch was much more a freak occurrence than an indication of his punching power. That early right hand landed on the perfect spot right behind the ear. Didn’t even look like it had that much force behind it. It just hit the perfect little nook that somehow scrambled Wilder’s circuits in such a way that his equilibrium was shot for the rest of the night. Never really seen anything like it, truth be told.

    Naw. All that blood doesn't come from one freak shot.

    Didn’t that just add up afterwards once Fury started having his way with him? I only watched it the once. Wilder was a sitting duck for the rest of the fight. Didn’t even have a puncher’s chance without his legs under him.

    He's actually 5-0-1 (4 KOs) over on US soil (amateur and pro) albeit he should be 6-0-0(4 KOs)

    And 2 of those KOs were of the devastating HL reel variety. The Cunningham one and this one



    He broke the nose of hungry undefeated young lion Tommy Schwartzenhoffa and blasted him out in style in 2



    Beat the Jesus out of Bootleg D and had him pulling ''I've just seen a ghost'' faces before harvesting his soul



    The only fighters to take him the distance on US soil are D in the first fight when he was an inactive 40% muscle atrophied drug-ravaged shell of himself and he wasn't even trying to hurt or stop D in that one

    And hungry undefeated young lion Wallin and his face was a mask of blood for most of that fight after suffering a terrible cut early on

    Fury is a man for the big occasion

    ''I didn't come to the USA to play tip tap boxing''
