Do you think the last couple of weeks was the peak for this current heavyweight crop? If Usyk beats Joshua again that's arguably the end of Joshua and the Fury fight. Usyk v Fury is good fight but will it grab the imagination and spotlight like what we had over the last couple of weeks? Whyte v Fury good fight in UK not going to grab the global attention imo. Wilder v Joshua is still an attractive bout or Wilder v Joyce but at the moment Wilder could walk away. How many more has Fury got in him? With no Aj no Wilder does he stick around?

Hopefully the next crop of heavyweights don't bring as much politics with them so we can get more of the fights we want. With the heavyweight division being so dormant its good to see it back and hope it continues.

No Joshua isn't finished if he loses to Usyk. Wlad had 5 losses on his record and is still considered the best of his era.
He's always in the gym and genuinely lives the life. He's got a lot ahead of him yet if he wants it.

Usyk vs Fury will be a horrible fight to watch for the casuals, but it will be special as it will be the two best heavyweight boxers of the era facing off. A lot of people are discounting Usyk already which given the way he man-handled Joshua, surprises me.

Wilder needs to retire, he's a joke. Moving on.

Joyce needs his shot within the next 2 years or it will be too late. His main assets are his chin and stamina, both are the first things to go (along with speed) when you start to regress.

Unfortunately for us Brits I think the next heavyweight era will belong to America. Our prospects don't seem to really have much behind them at the minute.

Who do you think Fury will fight next? I would like to see him fight Whyte but I can't see it happening. Got big John Fury saying what he said today but I also think that Fury likes America. He likes training there being there and most importantly he likes fighting there and I think they will use the fact that Whyte is not a name in America to not face him.

Andy Ruiz is a name he could face but imo it's a tricky fight. Still think Fury would win but it's a tough fight for him and one he could see as high risk low reward.

I think he's praying for an Otto Wallin win. Easy enough defence and he has some sort of name in America which they could sell.

The WBC have been talking about Dillian Whyte fighting Fury, so I think providing he beats Wallin he'll get his shot finally.

Going on what I last saw from both Whyte and Wallin, Whyte should win with a stoppage in the later rounds. Wallin has a very limited gas tank but reasonable boxing skills, so if Wallin is to win it will likely be early on.

Andy Ruiz won't be fighting Fury any time soon, Not after the way Arreloa beat him up early on. He's with the right camp though and should improve a lot, so I'm sure we will see Ruiz fighting for a title again in the next few years but not just yet.

I think you are right about America though. The WBC are very keen to keep the belt on American soil, seldom do you see the WBC heavyweight world title leave American soil.

You can see that aside from the Vitali Klitschko reign, it's always been based in America, with the odd fight being sanctioned for abroad.

Wow, that was amazing. What I fighter I take my hat off. Brilliant boxing. That was proper boxing. What a performance.

Time to rock. Best of luck lads. I have the mega fight feel about ne now, c'mon that's see a cracker. Aj points my bet but cheating on Usyk.

Any predictions for the Aj Vs Usyk fight at the weekend?
I think Usyk will feel the power of Aj early and become very negative and happy to survive just. Going for Joshua points win.

Wilder missed a trick doing that. He had a chance to rebuild his reputation after that performance by just shaking Furys hand. At least he made a statement after congratulating Fury.
I don't mind Wilder, he talks a lot of rubbish and his excuses were annoying but he showed a lot of heart last week and watching him knock over 40 tomato cans was fairly entertaining. How he started his boxing career to provide for his disabled daughter was good.
Couple of things that really did annoy me about Wilder was he tried to make the Fury fight about race which is wrong and all that talk of wanting a body on his record was disgusting.

Hats off to both men was an excellent fight. Fury was brilliant on the inside but it was his left jab that won that for him and his guts. a lot of men wouldn't have got through that 4th round, Fury's fittness and recovery powers are outstanding. Hope he fights Whyte next.

Think Wilder will retire now. I hope not as I still want to see him fight Aj and Whyte but think his ego won't let him stick around.

The heavyweight division is back.

Think if we look at the 2 fights already, Fury has used two styles. Box and move and aggression front foot pressure. We seen that Wilder had some success against the boxer style but was clueless when backed up and pressured. I agree with you that Fury will start on the front foot but it will be controlled aggression coming in behind his long jab. I'll go for a Fury win on points possibly later stoppage.

All depends on how wilder performs on how he goes forward. They could have taught him some new tricks on how to set the right hand up and worked on his stamina but I don't think he can come with anything Fury hasn't seen or dealt with b4.

I wouldn't mind seeing Wilder v Aj still. Or Whyte.

What about the scoring from Harold Foster? 115-113, so if Joshua won the last he was scoring the fight a draw. He give Aj the first round and 5 rounds the whole fight, imo he won 1 maybe 2 at max.

The Campbell Hatton decision earlier in the night was a robbery.

Also, I watched the fight on Sky and Callum Smith floored Castillo and his leg started twitching they didn't show the replay and the commentators were very respectful, unlike DAZN commentary team and Todd Grimshaw in particular who I read screamed "his (Castillo's) body is no longer working! " Very disrespectful.

Yes he needs to let his hands go and use his strength and weight to his advantage. Crazy trying to outbox Usyk, its like since the Ruiz fight Aj has become very cautious, trying to box people, which for a gold medallist he was never very good at in the first place.

The belts have become a burden last while. I want to see the best fight the best whether there is a belt on the line or not. Going to be hard for Aj to get Fury fight now especially with no belt but him Wilder could be easier to make, depending that Fury beats him next month.
