wow that was a brilliant fight last night. I also thought respect to wilder or hanging in there and showing some heart the way he did towards the end but then the respect for him went right out the window post fight when he didn't even acknowledge fury after the fight.

at the end of the day the best man won and he should have acknowledged that.

guys predictions for the fury/ wilder fight?
i think fury will start fast again like last time
and even get rid of wilder quicker to.


but if somehow wilder wins, (hopefully not) then we will have fury/ wilder 4 to look forward to sometime next year lol.

was also saying to friends that I wonder what the excuses from wilder will be this time if fury does another job on him?
seriously though I think if its the same as the last fight, ( which I think it will be and be over quicker) then wilder needs to call it a day.
i said he should have called it a day after the load of bs excuses he came out with.

i do also hope that whyte get's a shot at the wbc belt after this to.

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.

wow what a performance by usyk last night, that was a proper boxing performance all through the fight I only had aj winning 3 or 4 rounds at best.
and I think if there was another minute or so left in the 12th when usyk really stuck it on him he may have finished him.
and I was wrong on the fight outcome to I said to friends before the fight I reckon aj will stop usyk late.
i think the problem with aj is that he can't handle it and doesn't know what to do when someone is really putting it on him as we saw when he first fought ruiz.
and imo I don't see aj winning a rematch with usyk.

Said for a long time, Usyk will beat AJ. When I saw the result I watched the fight.

AJ can win the rematch but he needs to actually fight him, rather than try to out skill a guy who's skill ceiling is much higher than his. It's like me trying to run faster than an F1 car can drive.

He needs to do what Chisora did in the opening round against Usyk, but pin him into a corner and just let your hands go.

Also, Joshua just can't take punches. He's getting hurt badly by someone who in comparison to him is feather fisted.

Also you have to question his desire now. He's made 4 attempts to make the undisputed fight, 3 against Wilder and 1 against Fury, none of them happened and now he's lost his belts again. Is he going to have the motivation to do it again? Especially against a guy that completely outclassed him.


2.) 26 Sep 2021 16:14:56
your right he just can't take punches that's why I said he has no idea what to do and can't handle it when its being put on him.
also yes he does need to actually fight him in the rematch because there is no way on earth he will outbox usyk.



the thing I've been thinking now is if say joshua loses the rematch is it game over for aj? because will he have the desire to take possibly 2 or 3 more fights to get back in contention for the belts?
surely if he loses again he's way down the pecking order for title fights again?


3.) 26 Sep 2021 18:13:54
To be honest with you this is one of bigger reasons I just stopped watching and caring about Boxing.

There were 4 chances to make undisputed, all 4 times AJ was the one pushing for it and all 4 times he had it ripped away from him. I really feel for the guy because he's the only one that ever truly wanted it. Wilder is just an absolute joke and the stunt that Fury and his team pulled is just unforgivable.


4.) 27 Sep 2021 09:50:03
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.


5.) 30 Sep 2021 01:40:53
AJ really should look at changing his trainer. Someone like Freddy Roach would bring a lot more out of him.

Joshua is a good Boxer, he has a decent jab a very good right hand, good punch variation and very good at combination punching. However what he does is little more than basic, it's not creative or unpredictable. Don't get me wrong, he does the basics very well it's just if you want to be 'great' you need to be able to do more than just the basics.


6.) 01 Oct 2021 18:13:41
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.


7.) 02 Oct 2021 03:33:24
Another one of the big reasons I've fallen out with Boxing. At least he still scored it a win for Usyk I guess but yes, atrocious score card.

I didn't watch any of the other fights, seen a lot of people saying Hatton was gifted a win though and it doesn't surprise me.

To be fair to Sky they have been respectful in that sense in recent years, I remember when Whyte sent Lucas Browne into another dimension, they didn't replay it and kept repeating that they're hoping he's alright.
I will be honest, I thought Lucas Browne was dead. When people get knocked out they usually start breathing deep and heavily which Lucas Browne wasn't. So in that sense I am thankful that they didn't replay it etc.

DAZN have the potential to take over the whole sport, but they have such awful, awful presentation. The commentators are totally useless, the set is ugly, the analysis is a joke and the only saving grace is that the cost per month is so cheap.

did anyone see the wilder interview on the sky sports boxing channel on youtube? he ain't just talking about fury, he talks about joshus and whyte to.
looking at wilder in that interview it's clear he definitely ain't all there in the head.
it also looks like he is high on something to.

if fury does a job on him again I think wilder should call it a day and retire and I hope fury does a job on him to, otherwise if wilder wins then no doubt it will be part 4 in december/ january lol.

1.) 17 Jun 2021 14:29:59
It looks like to me his batteries were running out. Can he talk any slower? And why is everything he says like a line outa the Game of thrones? I think it's his way of trying to promote the fight but he's coming across as a ballbag.

Tbh Fury annoyed me the other day too. Thought he was very disrespectful to Scott and his jokes were crap. At least he tried, but Wilder just sat there like there was something wrong with him.


2.) 18 Jun 2021 04:31:11
As I said below, this fight shouldn't happen. Wilder isn't right and he's going to get badly hurt.


3.) 18 Jun 2021 14:28:56
I've listened to afew different Fury interviews recently and imo he's starting to sound like he did after the Klitschko win.


 

 

26 May 2021 00:12:06
starting to think now we will never see the fury/ aj fight.
i actually think in a year and half/ 2 years time we will still be asking is it going to happen and probably have wilder/ fury part 5 or 6 to look forward to lol.

1.) 26 May 2021 05:01:43
I agree, Fury is starting to wind me up. I usually give the benefit of the doubt and say it wasn't the boxer it was his team, but in this case it's pretty clear Fury is part of the problem. Don't be surprised if this Fury vs Wilder trilogy doesn't actually happen either.

If it was me in Eddie's shoes, I would say F the lot of them and freeze them all out. If they want Joshua, they can go the mandatory route and genuinely force the fight and take a 25% flat rate, as that's the only way I will be convinced that any of these chumpions want to fight Joshua.

Twice Joshua's name has been used solely to promote another fight, then he's accused of ducking said fighter. It's a joke.


2.) 26 May 2021 09:04:16
you know what hsf, part of me used to think before that possibly fury was ducking aj and just using his name, but where I am a big fury fan I didn't want to believe it, but now I am really starting to believe that fury wants nothing to do with aj and has no interest in fighting him.


3.) 26 May 2021 11:34:20
Listened to Hearn the other day and you could see he was visually annoyed at what has happened, its hard to disagree with anything he said. The whole thing stinks.


4.) 26 May 2021 17:43:40
Again that's only one side of the story. Warren coming out now saying there was legal issues with Usyk to overcome before fight was made and apparently there were other obstacles that haven't been discussed yet like how the broadcast rights were to divided.


5.) 26 May 2021 23:17:12
Can't blame the fighters here. It's the teams behind them.


6.) 29 May 2021 01:31:54
Good ol' fish eyes Frank will say anything to deflect negative attention. He should shoulder roll his way out of Boxing already, as he's been hanging by a thread for a long time now.


7.) 29 May 2021 18:09:08
Think Warren deserves a lot of respect. Without Warren there might not be no British boxing scene at all today. After the tragic Michael Watson fight every fighter was ordered to take a MRI scan. The BBBofC couldn't afford this so it was Warren who funded every single boxers testing for several years.

Way I look at it, we will never really know how it fell apart. Hearn can say no1 tried but he had the Saudi links he wanted to take the reins. It didn't work out I'll not lose any sleep over it.


8.) 30 May 2021 00:01:18
What happened 30 years ago has no relevence on the current Boxing scene, with how he and Arum totally decieved the Boxing fans.

It's not even that big of a deal, but it's an accumilation of absolute clangers from the whole boxing world that has done me in. This is just the straw that broke the camels back and I want to take it out on him. As someone who religiously watches Boxing, putting money into their pockets with PPV buys and channel subscriptions to BT Sport, SkySports and DAZN. Fish eyes Frank and Meyer Lanskys shoe shiner can spin on it.

Filthy rats the pair of them.

Sorry for my toxic rant, I am just done with Boxing and need to get it out of my system.


9.) 30 May 2021 13:36:02
Your right mate boxing does itself no favours although in this one I don't think anyone is really to blame. All parties were aware the fight could essentially fall apart if Wilder won his case and the arbitration case was named as a clause in the contract. Bob Arum was assured by his lawyer that winning the case was a formality only problem was the opposing lawyer was just as confident.
If anybody involved in this give a damn about the fans the fight wouldn't be taking place in Saudi Arabia in the first place. Funny that Wembley is now suitable for Joshua V Usyk.
If we can take any positive from this its as fans we are getting two good alternatives to the one we want and if somehow they can sort a deal out for the fight to happen in December we could get an even better fight. Travel restrictions will hopefully be lifted by then and searing temperatures in the Middle East will be more suited to staging a heavyweight contest outdoors.

that's strange though hsf because I am sure I saw frank warren say in an interview before that joashua ducked wilder, also that he saw the contract offer that wilders team sent to joshuas.
the interview was around the time just before wilder/ fury 2.
