Thanks very much man, hate trying to search on YT as I always inadvertently see the result.

What a performance from Fury, on that basis he's undoubtedly the best heavyweight in the world. Fancied him to win on points, even with his change to the Kronk gym I thought his talk of being aggressive would just be a put on. Extremely impressive.

That was one of the best heavyweight performances in years. He clinically took him apart. As much as I don't like Fury the man, he is undoubtedly the best heavyweight on the planet right now.

I don't see the point in a rematch personally. This was beyond decisive. I can't see how Wilder could improve enough to beat him.

Thanks for posting this. That was a comprehensive win for Fury. Wilder's legs were completely gone from the second round.

Why did that video mute the commentary in between rounds and play music instead?

Remember that guy who streamed a whole UFC PPV on Twitch but held a controller to make it look like he was playing a game?

I don’t understand how this allows them to avoid a copyright claim.

Fury did a comprehensive job on him. Thought Wilders corner did well to throw in the towel when they did. It was only a matter of time after the knockdown. Kudos to Fury. Fought pretty much a perfect fight.

Get the kite, Beavis.

Wonder if Joshua will go for a unification fight...

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I really hope we get Joshua v fury next and Wilder doesn’t reactivate his rematch clause. Apparently it needs to be activated in the next 30 days.

Deontay Wilder has blamed his elaborate ring-walk costume for his WBC heavyweight title defeat by Tyson Fury.

The American, 34, said his costume was too heavy and as a result he "didn't have the legs" for the fight.

It was under 20 kilos for what, a 5 minute walk? Crazy heavy for a costume but a guy that size should be carrying that in his sleep :lol:

I'm a bit disappointed in that this will probably mean a third match up. That also means AJ will probably fight someone else in the meantime, giving him another chance to slip up and derail his bout with Fury.

He's also sacking the cornerman who threw in the towel.

Aye, cos he wasn't hurt at all :roll:

I can understand the mentality - surely a requirement to get to that level in boxing - but the cornerman did the right thing. He was getting seriously injured in there. I think Bayliss had a lot to think about in the 6th and 7th at points. Wilder couldn't set his legs properly, there wasn't going to be that one big power punch he longed for.

He's not going to wait about for Fury is he? Why not have another fight whilst he waits?

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?

He dressed like Sauron and was shocked when he lost his power in the ring?

Yeah of course, but Pulev or Usyk could derail him.

Give over with that excuse of your dress wearing you down :lol:
Just admit you’ve been fighting two bit pub brawler types until now & you got beat by a real fighter. Twice.

Don’t think anyone wants a third. Would rather have that Fury / Josh matchup

Come fight death with me

I watched a Wilder knockout reel and yeah, the guys he faced did not look good (and that was before he KO'd them).
