Bellew started really well, Usyk was finding it hard to find his rhythm. But as the fight went on, Usyk just took over.

An exceptional fighter to watch.

I don’t really follow MMA that well anymore but I’m surprised to see nobody here has had anything to say about Ortiz Liddell 3.

Bit of a joke wasn't it?

People watching the Fury fight this weekend? Predictions?

I actually think Fury should be equal money at worst.

When you look at his record he generally only has a couple of fights a year anyway so I don't think being away for an extended period of time will hinder him greatly. He'll probably be gassed by R8 but ring conditioning is a hard thing to nail.

Wilder will doubtlessly be in better condition, but Fury is a better, cleverer boxer.

Looking forward to it.

As ever, if anyone needs a stream, go to r/BoxingStreams.

Anyone been watching Fighting in the Age of Loneliness?







As someone who doesn't really follow UFC, it's been a really interesting introduction to the history of the sport, and the stages in its evolution, but it's clearly been made by big fans, and for fans.

Fury is schooling him up to now.

As long as he has the stamina he should win this.

Absolute BULLSHIT. :lol:

Fury clearly won at least 8, maybe 10 rounds.

He didn't win by that many and he lost two rounds 10-8

Still had him ahead by at least a couple though

Just watched the fight, shame fury didn’t get the win. If only he had avoided the knock out in the last round then he would have got the win on the scorecard. I feel that if they rematch then wilder may win by knock out though. Hope not.

George foreman appears to be the only person on the planet that think Wilder got the win :lol:

He didn't lose, talk shite man.


That result is bullshit, absolute strawberry floating bullshit. I had money on a fury win on points and a draw so I've actually won more with that result but for someone to put themselves through all of that and not legitimately take the title is dreadful. Anyone with a modicum of boxing knowledge must know that Fury won at least - at least- 8 of those rounds. It wasn't even close.

It's being shown time and again that home advantage and monetary concerns are taking precedence, as in GGG Alvarez 1. It's ruining boxing and it's strawberry floating dreadful.

Spectacular fight up until that though. Fury has exceptional technique.

strawberry floating boxing :dread:

Nothing will change until the judges aren't chosen and buttered up with perks by the lead promoter, strawberry floating disgraceful robbery. Fury schooled that joke 10-2, I don't want to even see a rematch, that big stiff idiot AJ and Hearn need to grow some balls and step up to the Gypsy King.

I had fury to get knocked down and win on points. Disgraceful really. I felt he won 8 round to four.
Even with the knock-downs he should have won.
At a pinch I could see why a draw could be called but Wilder winning by four is nonsense scoring.

That judge had Wilder winning the first four rounds. Anyone who has watched a single boxing fight in their lives cannot honestly believe he won the first four. It's completely unacceptable.

The only way I can see that judge reach that score is if he was taking a dump at the start of the match, missed the first two rounds, and watched the last round three times in a row.

He might have edged the second. Might. That's it. Ridiculous scoring.
