Wilder vs Fury #2

Who’s your money on! Fury for me was an epic first fight I think wilder will get punched all over the place, all he has to do is avoid those wild swings which should go in his favor even more seeing as he’s already fought him once now. Very good mover for a heavyweight.. wilders dangerous for the whole 12 though.. can’t wait.

Interested to hear some Americans views on it!

This fight is impossible to call. Fury is the better boxer by miles - better movement, footwork and range of punches - and Wilder is basically an agricultural windmill. But Wilder has the Equaliser and if Fury hadn't channelled his inner Undertaker in the last round of the first fight, Wilder would've won despite being comprehensively outboxed for the entire fight.

Toss a coin.

Heavyweight is such a knife edge.

If it goes to judges Fury will have won but judges scoring is another conversation.

Either are capable of that 1 punch but Wilders power is phenominal. It dosnt fade over the course of the fight either. Fury has to be lucky everytime, Wilder only has to be lucky once.

Looking forward to it.

Got to agree with that, AJ has never been hard to hit.

I think Usyk could be the real deal aswell. Next few fight will tell

It's a tough call but my money goes to Wilder. He has age this advantage and can withstand more than Fury..

I have to disagree with this.

Fury was dropped by a right-left combination from Wilder that would have put a T-Rex on its back. Fury was legitimately knocked out but somehow he managed to get up. Pretty much any other HW on the planet is staying on the canvas for a few minutes before asking the doctor what planet he’s living on. His powers of recovery are other-worldly. If he looked less durable it’s because he himself is feather-fisted so Wilder wasn’t in danger of being KO’d.

Wilders took one official KO in amateur days, DW claimed this week that Klitcho ko'd him in sparring ( bum move talking about sparring) and he has been in trouble in other fights.

Wilder. He's out for blood and will KO Fury. Fury is the better boxer but Wilder has the bigger punch.

If Fury can avoid knockdowns, he wins. Even with the knockdowns I reckon he won the previous fight, it's just hard to award someone the win when they were floored and exposed.

Fury can take a hit, the only way Wilder wins is if he can hit him with (much) harder punches- therefore, he must get through the gates earlier in the fight.

Damn hard to call.....I'm gonna back Wilder too but it could literally go either way.

Wilder's right is a total KO...Fury has to watch out for that, because it will totally knock not just him but anyone out....

I wouldn’t call Tyson a tosser to his face, mind.

At least he’ll have no problem making a fist come fight night

Fury was robbed in the first fight.

Wilder has no boxing skills to speak of. None.

I’m not so sure that Usyk isn’t better than all these guys (Fury, Wilder, Joshua)

I think Fury will win my KO as he knows he cant depend on a points win being awarded there.

Its amazing how these guys can remain focused and want to keep putting themselves through it all when they are already very very wealthy.

I honestly believe Fury feels he has to make amends and I think the fight is more to do with his pride and rectifying what was the wrong call on the first fight.

Yes, the fact that Fury got up from that blow gives the edge to Fury, who will surely outbox him but will probably get one 90% shot landed on him thru 12 rounds and I suspect Fury can take that, but if Wilder lands a Tyson-esque 110%er on his chin then maybe it's lights out.

Should be a great fight. Should be well worth the $80.00 PPV price.

Its a tough fight to call. I think Wilder is going to connect on Fury again. I was shocked Fury took the last punch like he did. Can he take it again? Great fight, great match up, can't wait!

Rooting for Fury, I think he can pull it off, boxing fundamentals win fights against more “powerful” opponents. Ofc there is the unlikely chance wilder connects but he can be shook easily and has a tendency to gas.

Hope that cut doesnt re open on fury that could be a big problem for him

To be honest, I was rooting for wilder but before the fight he gave a vibe that had me doubting if he could KO fury.
