  • What makes Fury a special fighter?

    Let's talk about what makes Tyson "2 fast" Fury special.

    Is it his ability to switch hit on a dime and finish an entire fight southpaw?

    Is it his lightning fast hand speed, reduced to a blur as he lets his gifted hands go with ill intentions?

    Is it his adamantium chin, which gives the impression that he can walk through bullets?

    Is it his otherworldly recovery ability, reminiscent of Wolverine?

    Is it the way he gracefully floats like a butterfly and stings like a nuclear warhead, making Ali look like Angulo in comparison?

    Is it the way he sticks and moves, with the reflexes of a cat and the speed of a mongoose, slipping shots like Locche and ripping his opponent to pieces with combinations like SRL?

    Is it his ability to decimate his opponent in a phone booth fight, slipping and rolling, ducking and countering, giving and taking?

    Is it his fearlessness and blood lust, his willingness to stand in the line of fire, the heat of battle, to swim in dark, turbulent, stormy waters and trade shots with full steam, ready to die?

      No one that size has ever been able to move the way he does.

        6'9....... feints, movement..... jab.

        No heavyweight in history will be like Fury...... even if he loses he will go down as unique for his size and style.

          Vitali Kiltschko could move.

            He's big, awkward and has loads of confidence. There's no great mystery.

            He's certainly not a great technical boxer. He's not exceptionally quick. Footwork isn't great. He's not a big hitter. Jab is good not great.

            But he's a huge man with decent attributes.

            At that size he would be a threat to anyone in history. But he's also very beatable.

            One excellent win on his resume. One very good win.

              His footwork is very intelligent. Obviously he isn't going to look as nifty as small fighters but his balance and footwork is excellent. Even the way he shift his weight and can get into range with feints and a little two-step is so far ahead of any heavyweight right now. He's has almost perfect balance to spring into range and step out of range at any moment.

              If you can't see that, you have a lot learn about boxing.

              He beat Klitschko almost entirely with footwork just by offsetting him with his feet.

              Also he has a very good jab. He probably has the most varied jab in heavyweight division today. he can use it as a strong jab, a rangefinder and even flicking jabs just to move fighters in to hi path. and also he changes the levels with the jab a lot, which are the heavyweights don't do today. You will often see him bring it from the waist or conventional way and you he can change a jab into a hook at the last second.

              His ring IQ is top notch too.

                I accept that.

                I consider him to be bigger than Klitschko but it's close enough that I'm totally down with saying Klitschko is the other one.

                  uh what... ???

                  he is a excellent technical boxer, clearly the most natural/skilled heavyweight

                  and he has excellent footwork, wtf... ?

                  we are not talking about Hughie

                    He moves incredibly for the guy of his size. And he has great skills for a heavyweight.

                      He's the product of his era. His resume is bare bones. His style is oafish. Especially when he tries to be fancy. A long, tall, fluffy guy who has some rudimentary skills for a guy of his size. I wouldn't call him a coward since there isn't but a couple of guys to fear. This HW era is wide open and overflowing with clowns.

                      None of these guys belong anywhere near the HOF.

                          His balance and footwork is nowhere near excellent.

                          I see everything you see. He moves well for a man of his size. I get it, he's a massive problem for any fighter and may end up the best of his era (if he can manage to retain, rather than just win).

                          But excellent footwork? Nope.
                          Technique? Nope. He's awkward.
                          Great power? Nope. That would require being a bit more conventional in how he loads up.
                          He's good on those areas but not great. But those good attributes are in the context of a 6ft 9in 270 pound guy.
                          IQ I'll give you. He seems to have the rest beaten in that area.

                          He's not the complete package. And he's very beatable inside the ring, as well as an absolute liability outside of the ring.

                          His resume is one great win against a great champion. Then two fights against the most overrated, protected and technically deficient Champion in history.

                            If Fury was a middleweight or lighter, he’d be average-to-[i]shi[\i]te.

                            Just because he moves well for a big guy and beat Klitschko, he’s somehow this unparalleled fighter.

                            There are more flaws to Fury than qualities. If he beats Joshua straight up, with no funny business, then yes; he’s the best of this era. Which is like saying Coronavirus is better than Spanish Flu
