makes no sense
I agree that this is a risky fight for Chagaev (in fact, it's a risky fight for both of them). But Fury would be just as big a risk as Perez. Not because Fury is as talented as Perez, but because he is 10 inches taller than Chagaev. His punches would be as much vertical as horizontal if he wanted to hit him.
I'm looking foward to this fight. Is it fact or rumour?
Edit: Boxrec says the fight is on.
