    Fury gets caught with so many jabs that he will lose on them alone against one of the robot brothers.

    Not the greatest spectacle but Fury was always better. Hopefully Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 next week will be decent.

    Heavy weight boxing is terrible in general fury stuck to his guns like he said in his post match interview. That yank was a man who went 12 rounds with klitschko, no easy feat! wasnt fancy by any means but fury deservedly won although though his fouling was terrible.

    I'd like to see Flintoff against Fury.

    Two fighters with similar levels of technical ability - should be a good un. :smiley-laughing002:

    Take it you didn't see the fight the other night then. :smiley-laughing002:

    Quality was so dire they were getting booed.

    If Fury ever gets in against one of the Klitschkos it'll be like watching Ali against the village drunk.

    I've seen every minute of every one of his fights, he is progressing and progressing quickly.

    Awkward, gangly and some times devoid of technique but he punches like a brick wall and has a solid chin. He also has 12 years to get to where Wladimir Klitschko is now. I'm not saying for a second that he will but he is being made out to be some sort of comical figure when in fact he is a solid boxer with a shitload of potential.

    fury was in a load of the schools in west belfast all week, doin promo, signin autographs, smilin for pics, i actually like him. I think hes progressin aswel, johnson had gone the distance with klitschko so was always gonna go to points imo, fury controlled the whole fight and used the jab well, hes usin his head and not bein drawn into a slugfest. fair play to him i say

    if i were him id stay away from this fight til after klitschko, big moneyspinner, but if fury took this fight before klitscko and lost then he wouldnt get that shot.
