    I like both but usyk is definitely my favourite fighter. I have so much respect for that man. He's great for the sport. Willing to take 30% and yet again is the away fighter. The man is an Olympic champ, multi division Champ and imo the p4p number, yet he is still the road warrior?

    Fury is prima dona outside of fights, but has proved he is as tough as they come during the wilder fights. He also had his biggest fights away from home

    Who do I want to win? Usyk, but not too disappointed if Fury wins

    Who do I think wins? Fury 100% will win this fight

    Fury & his family are out of the poor me honeymoon period & has migrated into the Pantomime villain... Usyk in every decent minded person is the choice , where has Usyk any advantage going into this fight ... Fury likes to whine what he overcome due to his mental health, I wonder what Usyks MH is seeing/ knowing cousins / Uncle / Aunty/ freinds being shot / blown up or under serious threat possible while having to deal with this ****ing charleton ***** Fury...

    Usyk is who I'll be rooting for. I like Fury as a boxer too, but Usyk is my favorite right now. I see this as very much a 50-50 fight, so I'll just be happy it happens. This is what an undisputed fight is supposed to be: two guys at the top of the division with no clear cut winner from the get go. That's what makes this such a great fight and why it needs to happen.

    That being said, if Fury wins, yeah I'll be disappointed my guy lost, but I'll also be glad to have a new undisputed champion after 20+ damn years of not having one at heavyweight. And plus, there are way worse people who could be the champ. Fury's personality is a bit much for my tastes, but I tend not to put too much stock into the personality of boxers. I realized not long after getting into the sport that it tends to have some bad characters in its ranks, so if you get into this looking for heroes you'll prolly be disappointed more often than not. Not to say some boxers aren't good people, because of course there are, it just seems like there are more bad eggs than not. But maybe I'm just being cynical. Anyways, Fury might be a jackass, but he's also one hell of a boxer and that's the thing that matters most when you get down to it.

    I want Usyk to win and I believe he will, but I won't be too bummed out either way, so long as we get a good fight out of it. And we most certainly will.

    Fury, just.

    I really like Usyk though and would neither be surprised, or upset to see him win. Big fan of both.

    That is my wish for every fight I watch , after all that's what boxing should be . Corruption & love of $$$$$$$$$$
    is more the case these days
    I'm surprised that old video of Fury throwing a punch & hitting himself, hasn't popped up on the board again.
    He was the laughing stock of boxing then, Now he's being called The Best Heavyweight Ever!!!
    What Happened ??

    I pretty much like both equally, I'm not rooting for a winner here. I think they're both the top 2 HWs so let's just establish an undisputed champ

    With what Ukraine is going through and how much better a representative Usyk is of the sport, my head says Usyk. But as a Brit through and through, heart still says Fury. I'm almost ashamed of myself to say it.

    Anyway the fight will probably a draw and then we'll have 6 months of drawn out public rematch negotiations.
