Yes, they're much more realistic of who's where.
Or if he wants to take the ****...
That green strap is living off past names that have held it. It's nostalgia.
When I think of WBC these days I think of an org that doesn't enforce its mandatories. Given that, what legitimacy does it give its heavyweight champion ?
WBO - too close to Warren with their rankings.
WBA - daft regular and super belts
For me the IBF is the #1 belt. They are brutal enforcing mandatories and have +10lb rehydration limit on fight day.
Every time sulaimain announces another pathetic novelty belt or franchise champion a little more respect is chipped from the wbc's reputation. There's precious little remaining. Especially when you look at who wilder defended his belt against.
If you think Fury looks awful fighting southpaw, you clearly haven't watched him fight southpaw.
$79 this fight will cost to watch in the states.
Fury wrapping up camp now. The good news is the cut hasn't opened in sparring.
Didnt he switch regular in the 2nd Chisora fight?
And we know how that went
The current best 2 undefeated World Heavyweights going head to head again next weekend in the biggest World Heavyweight fight since the Lewis era.
Cannot wait for the first bell now.
Absolutely. Dismantled Martin Rogan in the southpaw stance when he was young as well. Tom Schwarz too.
There's an awful lot of people who don't know things about Fury yet like to bash him about them. It's mind boggling.
It wasn't a bash and while I don't go all starry eyed over him, I am fair. I give him credit for his boxing and powers of recovery.
He may be able to go cuddy wifted and get away with it at lower levels (which includes Chisora types, as Derek doesn't mind being punched from either stance). Fury also did it in the 3rd round against Vlad, but he won't or will decide that it's a bad idea to do it against Wilder (he briefly tried in Wilder 1 and quickly thought better of it). Going southpaw against Wilder's lethal right is not going to end well. As such, his southpaw ability - as limited as it is - will not win him the fight and may end up losing it badly. In his last 3 fights Wilder has demolished Brezeale and fought 17 rounds with southpaw Ortiz, dismantling him in their last fight. A Fury southpaw stance will not bother him.
I never said it was the correct tactic to use against Wilder. I noticed Fury looking vulnerable in the southpaw stance against Wilder but that's only because Wilder has the best straight right hand in boxing.
You said Fury looks awful in a southpaw stance and I rightfully pointed out that statement is untrue.
Id agree, its not the right tactic here
But as Hatton says its not the same as being poor at something
When the opportunity presents itself he can switch to a very decent standard
Wilder is a bit of freak so any tactics a risk with his punch power
I wouldn’t say limited as he’s left handed, but definitely more vulnerable to a fighter with a big right hand.
Watching the R12 program from last night on BT.
More I am.watching stuff the bigger I see him not being with BD as a negative.
