I think deep down he knew he wasn't going to beat Usyk.

Nevertheless he's earned another nice little pay packet and can retire.

Be interested to see if Usyk moves up a level now he has been opened up to the british public.

I believe there was talk of him having a go at Joshua

I think at the time of the Cruiserweight Series Bellew must of had his 2nd fight with Haye. Probably knew he wouldnt of got anywhere. Some very good fighters in the Cruiser division.

This upcoming fight is like the rough against the smooth to me.
I think that the rough will cause another upset,Fury to win.
He will be prepared with his game plan and heavier than the American guy.
I'm not sure how it will end but I can't see it going the distance.

I really want Fury to win but I can't see anything but a Wilder K.O

A peak Fury I'd take to beat any heavyweight out there but he's not had a meaningful fight since he won the world title. It is a massive ask going in with someone like Wilder with such a lack of proper preparation.

Fury hasn't looked after himself at all and we simply don't know how good he is now. Is he still the same boxer? Truth is we won't know until we see him in the ring against Wilder. The odds though must surely be against it.

Certainly tricky to predict with any sort of confidence. Wilder hasn't exactly been active of late with only 3 fights in 2 and a half years.
Still has to be favourite though, mainly because of the low quality of Fury's two fights since the comeback. The first fight being a total farce and Fury far from sharp in the second. He could pull a performance out of somewhere but it's a huge step up from those two fights.

Fury will ,should outbox windmill wilder as long as he has the mobility for a 12 rounder.but what worries me is fury has dropped far too much weight latest pics of him he looks skin and bone,not good for a long fight

Talking about skin and bone,does anyone remember the great Pat Cowdell?
I used to train at the same club on occasionally and he was skin and bone but was the strongest man I've ever known,he was wiry,but he could punch a hole in a brick wall.
Brilliant boxer.

Went 15 rounds with the great Salvador Sanchez but later got knocked out in a round by Azumah Nelson. Top quality fighter!.

I would have thought ‘skin and bone’ ( surely an exaggeration) is exactly what is required for a boxer who intends to out box his opponent and go the distance for a points win.

yes Pat was a really smashing boxer (managed by Tommy & Paddy Lynch), he was as tough as anything but unfortunately had a little bit of a glass jaw.

No way will Fury win this by knockout.  If he is on his game he'll be too slick give Wilder a boxing lesson.  I do think his inactivity means he might get sloppy and get caught then its good night.


I'd love to see Fury vs Joshua at Wembley next year though.

Hope Fury wins.

Then I hope he fights Joshua and shuts up this ridiculous cringe fest surrounding him.

He needs to stop pulling up his shorts, dropping his guard and acting cocky during his fights before even thinking about stepping in the ring with Joshua, just those 3 things will get him knocked out and that's without taking Joshuas power and speed into account.

If both boxers entered the ring in best possible condition fury would absolutely batter Anthony no 2 ways about it

Wilder 212 Furey 256. Wilder his lowest ever weight, will the 44 pound advantage favour Fury or will it hinder him. Dont really like either guy. But hope Wilder wins because i'm fed up with people going on about Fury being the ' Undefeated linear Champion' when he pulled out of two rematches with Klitschko. Cannot lose the title if you dont defend it!

Wilder's chief weapon is his speed of punch so the low weight should suit him. His right hand is very fast - seen some comments about windmill Wilder but he delivers his straight right very fast and very economically. Purely in terms of the right hand he's like a heavyweight Thomas Hearns.

Some naughty scoring there. That said he didn't quite make the 2nd count imo and it should have been waved off.


Fascinating to watch Fury work, though you always thought he might get caught.


Once it went to a points decision it was obvious Fury had won by 3 or 4 rounds even allowing for the two 2 point knockdowns.

I said earlier that Tyson would win but not sure how it would end .
Wow what a fight,anyone who knows a bit about boxing knows Tyson won.
I think he is mentally stronger than Wilder  and physically stronger.
I would love to see a rematch in Manchester which I believe the Brit would win.
Great performance by Tyson when you consider what he has endured personally for last 3 years,incredible really,hats off to him and his corner.
I think that Wilder is scared of Fury and hasn't met anyone like him before.
Tyson will be fitter for the rematch and I believe he could knock Wilder out.
Great fight.

Bitter pill to swallow that was, how the judge has given Wilder the first 4 rounds is beyond me. Wilder looked at beaten man just trying to save face in the post fight interviews, I think he knows deep down he was out boxed. That's the worst Fury he's going to fight so I wouldn't be surprised if he avoids the rematch like the plague !
