    Completely agree! Andre Ward was great with that as well, Winky Right, Hopkins. The body jab is such a great shot, and Fury had no defense for it. All the judges had the score even going in to the 8th round, its a shame Wilder didn't sustain the body attack.


    • Refreshing to hear him with some humility for once.

        Well not really. The fighters I listed were all flat footed, they were rarely on their toes. But if you want an example of great defensive fighters who were on their toes and transitioned into power punches seamlessly heres a list that immediately comes to mind, Ali before rope a dope, Roy Jones Jr, Young Mike Tyson, Joe Frasier, Chavez Sr, Hector Camacho. Admittedly Tyson and Chavez Sr were not "great" defensive fighters, but there ability to bob and weave through their opponents punches to get close enough to land their own shots, with out taking much damage was definitely elite.
        Ok, you're taking "alway on your toes" literally? Maybe this is a cultural thing... In the UK the phrase "on your toes" is used to signify moving constantly... I wasn't suggesting that it's necessary to be up on your toes like a ballet dancer for 36 minutes, Just that footwork is an essential part of defence. I take your point now.

          Malik Scott is nothing but a polite yes man. He tries to sound smarter then he actually is while being very polite while speaking, some mistaken it for actual intelligence.

                Odds are Wilder will connect on AJ in the first 5 or so rounds. When he does, AJ's recovery powers are terrible. It's as simple as that really. AJ has a chance vs Wilder but it's not a super high percentage chance. Wilder also is a lot tougher and has a lot more heart than AJ.
                Wilder is a terrible technical boxer and hasn't fought anyone (that he's beat) near the level of AJ.

                I'm not saying AJ would win, but to say that he's a wide underdog is a stretch.

AJ gets criticized for being chinny by Fury fans and yet he's been down more times and in more fights. Wilders fans feel the need to belittle AJ because the only way he beats AJ is on social media as he won't fight him for real. Insecurity complexes all round it seems.
                  Good point.

                  In fairness to Fury, his powers of recovery.... well, I would say they're better than AJ's, but that's not really fair. They're better than most people's.

                    Furys powers of recovery are second to none to be fair. He may get dropped but he always gets up. So far anyway. But that will change at some point. You can't keep getting put down like that, and it not take its toll. But his revival skills if nothing else are truly world class.
