  • Am I the only Fury fan that actually rates him less highly after Yesterday? I'm starting to think Usyk can beat him

    All I seem to be seeing is everyone saying how unstoppable Fury is & how he would now beat Ali in his prime,etc.

    But I actually think he took a step back from the rematch last night, I thought he looked all around like he had worse reflexes,& more unsure with himself.

    Conversely I see Usyk like all around the most skillful,fastest fighter at hw with enough power to beat anyone.(Wilder is so overrated to this day just because Fury stood still & let him land his best 1-2 multiple times, the same punches that he would've never landed in the rematch & which were going slower because Wilder gained weight.

    I just think he's too big for Usyk. He's estimation went up in my opinion. To take those shots from Wilder and still get up is damn impressive. I do think his lack of motivation and possible training habits negated his reflexes a bit but I think he will correct it next time.

      I think the same. He needs to be in the same shape as he was in for Klitschko or Wilder 2 to beat Usyk.

      I put it down to a bad camp and stresses from family stuff. Usyk is too quick and too crafty for a 75 or 85% fury to beat.

      needs his A game because Usyk is a killer

        Fury had been out of the ring for 22 months, he had a badly injured ankle, had caught Covid twice and was sleeping on a hospital floor for a week last month, plus he was unmotivated to fight a guy that he's already beaten twice.

        Fury can perform a lot better than he did at the weekend, the fact that he can show up at less than 100% and still KO a dangerous man like Wilder just shows how great he is.

          Fury must be in his best shape to deal with Usyk.

            Fury might need plan b to beat usyk. When usyk is outboxing fury fury might need to turn it into streetlight like Cunningham fight.
            right now we know fury can beat wilder and usyk can beat josh, that's all we know

              I actually think Joshua stands a decent shot as well. Fury is questionable in the clinch and Joshua would munch him with one of his trademark uppercuts.

              I have a lot of love for Wilder but he is disgracefully one dimensional. I could pretty much see his killshot from my own TV when watching yesterday. He takes a half step in after the often pawed jab for an overhand right which only really works when Fury's head sits below Wilder's. Wilder is all heart and natural talent but the boxing skill is insanely poor. Hence why he was still able to drop Fury twice.

              But the problem is mentality. I definitely don't think Joshua has the will to beat Fury and I am not sure Usyk has it either. Fury is just so insanely comfortable in there.

                I was waiting for Fury's t shirt to come off all night and as soon as it did I said to my Dad, he's not in shape like the 2nd fight.

                He's never going to be a body beautiful type but he had jiggly soft fat that wasn't there in fight 2. The type you get when you are sedentary.

                So all I take was that a bit better version of Wilder did a bit better against a bit worse version of Fury.

                As far as Usyk, Fury could lose to Usyk but Usyk can't beat Fury. If Fury is 100% he will **** Usyk up, Usyk struggled with Chisora, a guy shorter than Usyk, 25lbs lighter than fury with 2 rounds of stamina, roughing him up, Fury would mangle him.

                If Fury thinks Usyk is a midget who's no threat he might come in looking like Mr blobby and get picked off for 12 rounds.

                  Joshua has some mental issues going on, he's full of self doubt and looks like a guy going through but trying to hide depression tbh.

                    I still rate him highly but I have strong suspicions that hes being made to look a lot more slick and skilled than he really is due to Wilders limitations.
