Boxing Thread
« on: April 21, 2013, 03:56:05 PM »
just watched the highlights of him against Steve Cunningham, who is basically a blown up cruiserweight. got knocked down before coming back to wear out and stop his man. on this perfomance i think he doesnt have a prayer against the Klitchkos or David Haye.

It was an exciting fight, but Fury showed little technique and was very sloppy. He will get taken apart by Haye or either of the Klitschkos. He's got a punchers chance as they say.

I still think David Price is the better prospect, even after his loss to Tony Thompson.
Izzy Brown? Yes he is!

David Price is far better than Fury. He got caught by a one in a million punch last time sustaining a perforated ear drum, you couldn't do that if you tried. Price is future heavyweight champion of the world, mark my words.

I just cant take to Fury.  I find his style annoying and his fights are more often than not boring.  His singing at the end was beyond embarrassing.
 
Would love Price, Haye or even the Klitchkos to knock him out.

The Klitschko's are massively under-rated, it's about time they received the recognition they deserve. They are in that elite group of greatest heavyweights of all time. Vitali would've beaten Lennox Lewis comfortably had it not been for cuts.

If they were American the hype about them would be out of this world. the fact that they are Ukranian's makes them less glamerous.

Personally think they would be also-rans if they'd have been around with the likes of Tyson, Holyfield and Bowe back in their prime.
 
They are just lucky to be around at a time when the heavyweight scene is as poor as its ever been.

You think so? 5'11" Tyson who at his prime was taken the distance by the likes of Tony Tucker? You seriously think he;d beat 6'7"" Klistchko's?

Even Holyfield went through the weights he wasn't a proper heavyweight as demonstrated when beaten twice by Riddick Bowe.

Cunningham lacked power at Cruiserweight, let alone Heavy and he still dropped Fury hard. Look, unless Fury tightens up his defence he gets KO'ed against the first heavyweight he comes up against with decent power and handspeed. David Haye, for example, would knock him out early doors.

He's entertaining mind - just check out his post fight interview from Saturday.

tried to get tickets for this when it was first announced. i believe they sold out in a couple of hours. home advantage should prove to be key for Froch who seems really up for it. on a slightly different note you can see why the top Americans never want to fight out of America.

I missed the James DeGale fight last night but from what I read on Twitter things got a bit 'beefy' between him and our very own Richie Woodhall.

Anybody see what happened?

I saw it, I wouldnt say it got beefy, Ritchie Woodhall was praising him for his performance and Degale said that means a lot as you are usually my biggest critic etc, Degale was then trying to call Froche out to get the fight on and Woodhall basically said Froche wont fight you as you have nothing to bring to the table to make him want to fight you, Degale said I expect you to say that as you are in Froche's camp and that was about it really...It never once got nasty and Woodhall was 100% right, Froche is World champ, Degale has a silver belt and lost to Groves recently, hardly box office material is he?

Degale is an arrogant tw*t and not as good as he thinks he is.

Just seen the Richie Woodhall and James DeGale. There's nothing too it. Twittter over-hyping it as usual.

People kept on about him "dis-respecting" Woodhall.

If anything Woodhall was sticking it to DeGale. I half expected Woodhall to say he was coming out of retirement to fight him.

Having just looked up Richie's record, I didn't realise he had been retired 13 years. Saying that Steve Collins has just come out of retirement and he's 48, Woodhall is a sprightly 45.
Izzy Brown? Yes he is!

Tyson Fury is making himself look like an utter dickhead on Twitter with his lack of respect towards a legend like Lennox Lewis.

Hope David Haye beats him in February.
