Who is the fat sausage now?!

The whole thing was a farce. Two hours from the Wardley fight to the Fury fight. What a bore that was after an entertaining undercard. The fight itself was much better than expected and Fury lost it, but the WBC couldn’t have that (despite the belt not being up for grabs) and the judges obliged.

Fair play to Ngannou, he was solid and took the injustice on the chin, he obviously knew it was coming.

I very much doubt we will ever see Fury in the ring fighting Usyk. He would rather keep the unbeaten ‘Gypsy King’ myth alive as, for my money, Usyk outsmarts and outboxes him every time.

My guess is he retires again, then comes back (again) for another big money fight against a non boxer or two.

Without the Usyk fight can we really say that Fury was the generational great that we were lead to believe? Who does he really have on his record apart from Wilder and a 39 year old Klitschko? And while the Wilder fights were entertaining can we really say that beating him over 3 fights was such a feat?

Yes, obviously Wilder has freakish power in his fists, but how many tests has he really had other than Fury? He sat on the WBC belt fighting very beatable challengers twice a year for 5 years. Smart, but not exactly the stuff of greatness.

FN is a striker, unbelievable power, 17 stone of pure muscle, and knows how to train for a fight, think he opened a lot of peoples eyes.

Very, very powerful man. As much as I like Fury he is a boxer who carries a lot of weight but he does not have the dynamite for the power to weight ratio and the devastating one shot power, aka Wilder lol

I've just watched it this morning and Francis did well for a "nobody" didn't he?! I reckon he might have a decent future in the ring. This was less of a mockery to boxing than some of the recent fights, and as long as people keep buying the ppv then they will keep happening. I'd like to see ngannou in with old windmill one day, it would be fun while it lasted

Basically he got the game plan all wrong, expected FN to come out swinging to he could counter him. FN brilliantly disciplined, wait for Fury to throw then tried to counter, who has the biggest hammer

Heavyweight’s, takes one shot, fury was put down in the 3rd, landed but off balance and FN caught him on the side of the head. Scrappy really and for the first time ever Fury looked clueless until he strung a few jabs together

Can’t knock FN, machine, rock solid, full of muscle and would happily stand toe to toe with anybody

They reckon Fury was out the night before

Fight like this do make a mockery out of boxing but that fight probably shocked us all, takes one single punch. As for the Fury’s I am inclined to think as mentioned below, you can take the gypsy from the camp but you can’t take the camp from the gypsys, mongs, John Fury what a cock, he fancies a slice of the cake with the real Tyson

Shouldn’t be allowed to fight for the bets either unless they have progressed down the boxing route

Well, that saved boxing lol

To be fair FN got the knockdown but Fury had the punch count

FN, too strong, punches just bounce off him, he got caught with some very good ones!

Credit to FN, wasn’t expecting that

Great composure from Wardley and a great left hand, super sharp hands too!

I would like to see AJ fight Wilder and I agree, both have the power, Wilder has the success rate though.I don’t think anybody likes Wilder except for a few yanks!

Agree, Ortiz could have won both of those, far superior boxer, just succumbed to the bomb

Fury exposed Wilder as a one trick pony, aggressive fighter with a wide stance looking to land the bomb, put him on the back foot, clueless. Master class from Fury in all 3 fights, first one boxed him on the back foot, second one battered him on the front foot, third one bit of everything. For a big guy his movement, and skills are incredible!

Usyk is a great boxer no doubt but you could argue his record is not the greatest, Bellew etc who I can’t say I am a big boxing fan off. Still, you can only fight who is around at the time

End of the day we are being super critical because any of the above could wipe us out with the wind off their gloves

Ive not called usyk a great Chris. Not sure where you keep plucking that from? But he has 3 belts. That makes him a heavyweight champion! The dubois fight was one where some saw it as a low blow, others saw it as a fair shot and dubois was robbed. At the end of the day what happened, happened and you can only go with the refs decision. Personally it looked like a clean shot to me. But would usyk have got up within the 10 count? Who knows. He didn't need to because the ref gave him time for a low blow.
Agreed wilder is a nasty ******* , can't stand the man and hope he gets beat every time he sets foot in the ring . He had a few challengers for it too?10 of them And he's been on his way to losing a few fights along the way and got out of jail with a big right hand. Even that Artur spika was beating him until he got sloppy , and the over the hill chisora absolutely destroyed spika with ease . Ortiz was winning both fights until the right landed too even though he's god knows what age. His record has great numbers I'll agree, but names on that record? Not so much. I agree aj doesn't stand much of a chance, especially these days as it's pretty clear he's mentally weakened . But wilder can be hurt too so if aj could land first anything is possible. Not that I think he would because of being gun shy these days. Can't see either of them having much left in them tbh, 2 or 3 fights each maybe .

And yet he holds 3 of the 4 belts

And Dubious was SO close, are you going to say that he would be a great if he won too lol. Usyk ain’t put them together.The same collection Joshua put together before he was exposed again and again and again. Like it or not the belt was the WBC who nobody would challenge for whilst Joshua was doing the sweepings up. Wilder would absolutely well and truly obliterate him, the man ain’t no defence!

And then a man who is mentally I’ll, 10 stone overweight with a drugs and alcohol problem as a result, does major draining weight loss and comes along and beats the WBC dosser 3 times, now that is something that NO former heavyweight champ has ever done and probably will not again, that alone is pretty, unbelievable, ****ing amazing!!!

I think Wilder is the most dangerous fight for Usyk, and he won’t take it

Wilder is a nasty MF, but as somebody once said, you don’t go in there to tickle each other lol

But you said he wasn't a true heavyweight champion ? And yet he holds 3 of the 4 belts? And yet old windmill isn't a champion anymore either? Granted he can't be called a heavyweight great and at his age it's doubtful he has got enough time left to ever be called one. Even if he beats fury and wilder . Don't think he's got much chance against fury Tbh, but wilder I'm not so sure. That one could go either way for me.
In reality, who has wilder fought? He's got a massively padded résumé himself , other than fury he's got nobody. And the man is an utter tool. Saying he won't retire happy if he doesn't have a body on his record. He can't box for toffee either, all he has is that power, hence he came up short against someone with actual skills ,even though he made every excuse under the sun he simply wasn't the better fighter . Not even close
