    None of that matters though as they didnt do a presser in different cities.

    I’m literally 50/50 and cannot decide for the life of me. My ‘gut’ feeling is that Tyson Fury wins this but I’m just as easily persuaded by all the other permutations including the cut reopening controversially. I’m praying for a conclusive outcome

    From whats coming out of the camps about both Wilder and Fury having to do too much pressure and them both looked knackerd at the end of it, its fair to say there has been good promotion and this is a big sporting event. You could down the lines of is the bigger than Aj V Marin (yes), Ali V Frazier (no) but it's pretty academic really. Both guys gunna earn a wedge and be No1 in the division.

    I still can't device. Just watched Wilder V Ortiz 2 and Wilder was terrible I don't think he landed a punch in the 3rd. Not sure Tyson's ability's will let him do what Ortiz did tho.

    I do think Fury being in shades and a hoody plus that cold sore or whatever might means he's a bit run down...
    Whens the weigh in?
    Not long to go now.

    BTW I can't call this fight now either. I was thinking Tyson points or late stoppage but the closer the fight gets, I fear Wilder. That power is scary, he is a freak of nature.

    Bad camp rumours can't be extinguished until a good performance is put in. In saying that, I saw a video of a topless Fury the other day and he looked in the best shape I've seen him in years. I've seen a lot of videos of him doing weights, doing pull up's with weights in between his legs and it appears to me with the top nutritionist on board, he'll be stronger than ever with a huge weight advantage. Will he tire Wilder out by roughing him up and leaning on him? Absolutely. Will the weight slow Fury down? Probably. So much going on here with Fury going into the fight including a barely healed cut and alleged leg injuries but it wouldn't be a Fury big fight build without adversity and he loves it.

    One thing I'm certain of is an excellent fight.

    No camp is perfect, the fight itself is just the last 36 minutes of a 12 week camp. They all go through sheer adversity, injuries and illness just to make it to the ring walk. I bet hardly any fighter gets into that ring 100% right. They will have niggly injuries and other bits going on, but the adrenaline gets them through that last bit. This is what it’s all for. I expect Fury to do the job tomorrow night.

    This is so true. I rarely competed injury free during my own career and yet when I won my world championship I was carrying a serious quadricep injury and was on antibiotics for an infection. It’s amazing what adrenaline and mentality can do.

    Vegas is packed. My hotel is full. Still seems to be plenty of tickets available online at face value but I imagine they’ll be snapped up. As the week has commenced the promotion has really been driven over here, on TV, Radio when you’re in the taxis and billboards.

    It’s a mega fight and I’m buzzing for it even if jet lag is killing me!

    As I type the poll results are

    44 in favour of Wilder
    45 in favour of Fury
    2 for the draw.

    if you can’t enjoy a fight like this then I don’t know why you pretend to be a boxing fan.

    3 knockdowns along the way isn’t inconceivable.

    Yeah but @TonyHayers said they didn't do a multi city tour so it's ****, I believe him.
