    Ooohhhh how exciting, we are waiting with BATED BREATH for you to change your mind again on who wins, cover all possible bases so you can say you were right post fight. Complete twat.

    You’ve already made your crappy prediction and said that Uysk has zero chance to win this fight, giving other posters grief who disagreed with you. Stand by it.

    Something about Teji (one of AJ’s jockstrap carriers) according to a lot of the posts on the tweet.

    No. They'll be another injury or whatever followed by another warm up fight then probably retirement.

    Looking at Fury's current weight (not a fat b@stard) then you'd think he's taking it serious and the fight should go ahead. But I've long since learned that Fury could bottle it at any moment and pull out of the fight. I'm 50/50 i goes ahead.

    The fight will happen. If Fury didnt want it, why would he be dropping loads of weight and training. Fury is taking this seriously because he needs to, and he knows how hard its going to be. I sided with Fury for the win some time ago, but am wobbling a bit now. I feel he will have to do a lot of leaning on and mauling to break the Usyk flow. Usyks an awesome fighter but i think the size, movement and fiddling tactics of Fury makes this fight really tough to win. But, Furys opposition thus far, has not been anywhere near the fighter Usyk is. I just hope if Fury does win, its not like he did against Klitschko.

    All the past his best talk, he's younger than Usyk, it's a question of how much you want it, no excuses, the best man wins.

    So the fight looks like it’s happening and I’m delighted to hold my hand up and say I was wrong because I genuinely didn’t think Fury would ever step into the ring against Usyk.

    Not changing my prediction though. I think Usyk wins and knocks down Fury at least. Seeing a lighter Fury makes me even more confident that Usyk can actually knock out Fury.

    Fight week at last and encouraging that both are in Saudi.

    Hopefully Fury does not pull a late injury as he has form in the past.

    Let the chess match begin and I am beginning to favour Usyk more and more as we get close to the fight.

    I have ruled out Fury's chances in the past and hope I am wrong again.

    I was thinking the same, a lighter Fury seems more stoppable.

    Really looking forward to seeing how the fight pans out but at the moment I'm fancying Usyk for the late stoppage. He can't afford to let it go to the judges scorecard.

    Usyk clearly winning but it ending as a draw wouldn't suprise me either.

    But then again Fury could prove me wrong. Anything can happen at heavyweight

    Thanks to his Eminence Turki Alasheikh for making this fight happen.

    Only promoter in the world with the power to keep the gypsy mob behaving.

    I can see Fury hitting the deck - it's keeping him there that's the problem.
    Fully expect Fury to use what could be a 3 stone-weight difference and make it as ugly as possible to negate Usyks speed and movement.
    I don't think it will be a classic by any stretch. If it's a pure boxing match Usyk will win but if Fury can turn it into a scruffy brawl he will get the win.
