Thread: Fury/Usyk

  1. #1

    Fury/Usyk

    Thoughts.

    Despite his appalling and embarrassing display against a non boxer last time Im putting that down to lack of training etc.

    Therefore I think Fury is too big and wins a reasonably comfortable points decision Something like 116-112.

    i think he leans all over usyk and slows the match down until a ko

    Usyk to win the first 5 rounds, Fury comes back swinging to catch up, Fury will get clipped a few times and will hang on, will end in a controversial bore draw and there wont be a re match (regardless of what the contract says). That is my 2p prediction

    Usyk coming in at 233lbs is interesting. Fury 265? It's one of those, can't make a call until I've seen the first few rounds. I reckon usyk is going to try and be aggressive early on.

    Apparently they announced the wrong weight for Usyk. Think it was actually 223.

    12/1 for the draw isnít a bad shout.

    Way past my bedtime, but I would love to wake up tomorrow to read that Usyk won.....better still if it was a knockout....

    Re: Fury/Usyk

    Fury's record is all about Wilder, so you take a view on Wilder and how good he is. He just lost to Parker and not much to write home about until the trilogy with Fury. After Wilder, it is the second level Brits, Chisora & Whyte.

    I was firmly in the Fury camp if he ever boxed Joshua. He outboxes the current big guys and outpowers the smaller guys. Usyk is the best of the pumped-up cruiserweight and his demolition of Bellew and outboxing Joshua is still fresh but so is Dubois's body shot that on another night in a "cleaner" sport would have seen Dubois as world champ.

    If I were to have a bet I would go contrarian and bet Usyk 1~6 round KO by working inside and catching him with an uppercut. If Fury snuffs that out with his octopus arms and leaning then i believe he will do enough to win on points or a late-round KO.

    Still waiting for it not to happen though!!

    Those Wilder fights wouldíve taken a lot out of Fury. Depends how much heís still got in the tank.

    Furyís punch output significantly drops rounds 9-12, whereas Uysk ups it. Bloke is a freak!

    Christ that pantomime pre fight nonsense is pathetic

    If that's supposed to be part of the entertainment I would rather watch Eastenders

    Fury beat Klitschko as well.

    Its a terrible era though. But you can only beat whats put in front of you.

    Re: Fury/Usyk

    I didnít think that I would be cheering anyone on against FuryÖbut the way he has acted over the last few years has put me off him.

    Iím a bit of an Usyk fanboy so hope he wins.

    I think it will be an edgy fight with Tyson twitching and feinting a lot then holding and leaning on Usyk if he tries to get inside.

    How this fight goes depends on how much the referee intervenes on the inside IMO.
    It will also be interesting to me to see if Usyk can target the scar tissue on Furyís eye.

    Re: Fury/Usyk

    if usyk can get uder the jab, and get inside it will be curtains for fury

    fury will bite, spit, lean, cheat, rabbit and all the tricks he uses... dont ever under eatimate the smaller guy, if usyk is in range it will be a lesson of proper boxing

    if he gets the chance usyk to win... my heart says it will drag on and no doubt be a fix draw so it all happens again

    Controversial draw and a lucrative rematch.

    Re: Fury/Usyk

    Usyk has fought has beaten bigger fighters .
    He has the quicker feat.
    Can take a punch .
    Has a cardio of a horse
    ( doesn't get tired )
    Keeps going forward .

    Interestingly Usyk has much more ring time than Fury fought 335 times as an amateur , Fury fought just 35 times as an amateur.

    Both undefeated as professional boxers.

    Will Fury be in shape ?? we know Usyk will be, as he is not prone to the same excessive lifestyle behaviours that Fury has had ?

    It will end in a dubious, disputed finish.

    There's a rematch clause in the contract.

    Re: Fury/Usyk

    A good big guy will usually beat a good little guy. Simple as that. If Fury has a full tank, itís a forgone conclusion, if heís less than 100%, itíll be curtains for the Gypsy king.
