Fury isn’t the most gifted fighter you’ll see but he’s a serious hardcase.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Jimizo, experts have him as number three pound for pound boxer, that seems quite gifted to me. And he dominated the fight, Wilder fought too simplistically trying to rely on a big one-two, and his legs were out after 6 rounds. While Fury was fresh to the end, despite his beer belly and poor-looking conditioning.

It was a great match, the best I’ve seen in a while

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Fury made hard work of that. Had several chances to finish earlier. Best of his era by a country mile.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

What a fight by both of these legends. Both down , then up. But the Gypsie King is the truth! Undisputed,

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Wilder was dead on his feet from the third. Wilder is finished. What's his excuse going to be this time? His dressing room was too fat from the ring???

Hate jokers who didn't even watch the fight.He has serious ability,despite the needing to mention he's had his issues. We mostly all got issues,though some people are perfect.

Yeah, if Fury had real punching power he'd have finished him off sooner.My wife was jumping up and down with frustration as to why Wilder couldn't be finished earlier.But the fight was a classic with a number four bout not needed.

Wait to hear what Wilder says.He showed heart though I feel his ex trainer Mark Breland was justified in stopping the second fight.The same result happened but he took more punches for it.

Nothing so defines Humanity as this 'sport' of two Humans preparing for and trying with all of their capabilities to destroy each other and exciting those who find 'pleasure' in watching them do so.

Photo text says: "Tyson Fury, of England" because he won. If he had lost then no doubt he'd have been called "the beaten Irish Traveler". Even though he-himself has tried to discard his Irish Traveler roots, what he has achieved is remarkable giving the difficulties he experienced growing-up in Britain due to his...Irish Traveler roots.

Fonzy...

Really? Wonder why he chose the nickname "Gypsy King"?

He never had any difficulties growing up in Britain... The family are a well known for their criminal activities.... Uncle Peter was a drug baron, father John was to everything, served time for gouging a mans eye out in a carpark.. Of course they have gone straight now..... :)

2 very average fighters. Wilder is a one trick pony with one signature punch, the overhand right. He also has very skinny legs. The hapless Fury throws 2 punch combos then leans on the other guy head and shoulders to tire him out. Lennox Lewis used same trick with Mike Tyson. After carrying 300 pounds of soft hitting Fury fat on his back for 11 rounds, Wilder basically collapsed from exhaustion. A strong breeze would have knocked him down

Jessie Lee...

You obviously know very little about boxing...

"Never mess with a traveller"....words my Grandad told me....it was true then and it's true now. Hard AF.

Wilder came out fast in the first 3 rounds but Fury wasn't really troubled, as soon as Fury started throwing proper you could see Wilder was done for.....his face took an awful beating and looked like it had by the end, whereas Fury looked rather fresh still. Wilder was still hoping for the 1 punch knock out to save him but Fury is more than a 1 trick pony and he is the better fighter.

Pity AJ dropped the ball against Usyk, would've been good to see an all-British, winner takes all bout.
