    Can’t believe he’s done that again. Ortiz was 9/4 to win outright Inplay and I stuck £50 on him in the 5th round. Then that happens.

    Ortiz is so good too. I want all these guys to fight each other.

    Wilder a poor boxer with a freak right hand. Lost every round there.

    Joshua wide open, Wilder catches him for me. Fury fight goes similar to the first.

    A fit Fury will win 12 rounds against Wilder and beat him easily, again.

    He snuck in one of those devastating hands against a guy nowhere near 100% who then got off the canvas and dominated the end of the round.

    Can’t say it won’t happen in a rematch because that right hand can potentially end any fight but Fury is so far ahead of him as a boxer it is frightening.

    Don’t see how Ruiz or Joshua handle Wilder though, think both would be knocked out.

    Wilder's big punch is like a special move on a computer game it's devastating and it often comes out of nowhere but his general boxing skills are so average.

    If Wilder never had that right hand, he wouldn't even be a journeyman, he's disgusting technically. But that power is unreal.
    He lost every round of that fight too, and Ortiz switched off for a second. A fully concentrating Fury will box his ears off but Fury gets cocky and can turn off. Hope to * he stays switched on for the entire fight.

    Fury needs to drop the entertainment side during the fight. He can ham up the ring walk and then can sing and dance and do whatever the * he wants once he’s beat him.

    Hopefully his team are drilling that into him.

    His left honestly looks *. The way he was throwing it was technically awful, had one good dig to the body and that was about it.

    Flat footed, crap stance.

    That right is frightening though, it will knock Fury out if he gets caught with it again. A freak that he got up last time and continued on so well.

    Wilder in my opinion is going to win his next 4 fights by knockout and then retire in utter style.

    Yeah, absolutely. The more he's bossing it the bigger risk of him getting sparked. Would love Fury to be tuned in the whole fight and put on a Chisora 2 performance.

    Like I say, if he didn't have that get out of jail card he'd be a journeyman, at best. Horrific boxer, with * awful technique.

    Fury will get caught by Wilder next time and believe me it will be one * of knock out.
