Jake Paul vs Fury - Now that would be a clown show to beat them all.

Wouldn't last 60 seconds.

Oh, come on, the quality of the boxing was dismal...

Did you even watch the fight? Nevermind you can enjoy Jake Paul soon. More to your liking?

Fury has such a crazy advantage with his height and reach. That ninth round, the ref definitely saved him, he was wrecked.

Yes, Usyk is at least competent, like Mozart was a competent composer?

You’re saying Usyk is the Mozart of the boxing world? LOL. Let’s just leave it there.

Usyk clearly won. Very surprising that one judge gave it to Fury.

Well, obviously you are a boxing expert... LOL Yes, Usyk is at least competent, like Mozart was a competent composer?

Good, tough fight that went the distance and could have gone either way. The $100 million will console Fury until Part 2! Great respect shown between these two after the fight.

Well done to the champion Usyk - a proud Ukrainian, dedicating his undisputed titles to the brave Ukrainian people.

Be gracious in defeat, be honourable, shake hands.

“I believe I won that fight,” Fury said. “I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority of them, and I believe it was one of those what-can-you-do, one of them ... decisions in boxing. We both put on a good fight, best we can do.

"You know, his country is at war, so people are siding with a country at war. But make no mistake, I won that fight, in my opinion, and I’ll be back. I’ve got a rematch clause.”

Disingenuous, sadly not the character of a sportsman, a true champion, defeated on the night by a better man

The ref saved you in the ninth.

Yep. Laughable. Just pathetic.

“they gave him the win because his country is at war”

Fury has no class whatsoever.

From the sore loser dept.

Oh, come on, the quality of the boxing was dismal. Usyk at least is competent. Fury is pathetic. And, memo to Fury: if you’re going to do boorish showboating at least make sure you don’t get hit everytime. It’s not a good look.
