Whether you can be bothered or not you should not come onto a boxing site and give your opinion as truth and not expect it to be challenged and proved…..

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)……..read my post again MORE carefully…… I NEVER say that Chisora “Rocked” Fury……….I said he manaded to land some significant punches to Fury’s head……..something he DID NOT managed to do against Vitali.

KL as we are both in a reiterating mood let me remind you Vitali won on a ud decision as did Tyson….but what were these rounds that you refer to Tyson getting as you say “significantly tagged” and was in trouble at least 3 times from head shots…..If that was the case it would have been reflected in the scoring and not resulted in a ud..but perhaps you can remind me of the said rounds…..

KL

Rich, let me reiterate for just you, Fury got significantly tagged by Chisora……….Vitali with even at a poor performance by his standards Vitali’s) did NOT get hit with anything significant from Chisora.
That is why FURY did NOT do a better job than Vitali.

Posted April 17, 2013 9:27 am 


Rich

KL….Actually I was being polite,let me reiterate just for you,not only do I feel Vit was blowing but in fact when he fell into his brothers arms because he could not stand up he looked like he was crying from exhaustion.That is one of the reasons I thought Tyson did a better job….

Posted April 17, 2013 8:56 am 


KL

Rich, just a few points:

Vitali was almost twice as old as Fury on the dates when the both fought Chisora, so you have to expect Vitali to blow a little harder than Fury over 12 rounds!
Also you have to note that despite being out boxed for most of the fight, Chisora did catch Fury with significant head shots and have him in potential trouble at least 3 times in their fight……….Whilst against Vitali, Chisora, landed nothing of any significance……….in my book Fury didn’t do a better job on Chisora than Vitali did.

knowall – Strong words and easy to say on the internet when you are annanymus to all others but I doubt you would say that in person with those words. I’m not a trash talker here and won’t be that this time either. I expected more from you than that as I have seen your name here for some time, not longer than mine but still enough. I feel sorry for you. I respect that you like Tyson Fury and I was hard to say a “Bum”, something I rarley says and he is on the paper a quality fighter but Tyson Fury have recently just trash talked many quality fighters with-out making a serius challange to the opponents (Wladimir & Vitali Klitschko, Tony Thompson for some examples). Tyson Fury just don’t have what it takes to be that good to be that “Next Heavyweight Champion of the World”. Take it better knowall, I have no hard feelings against you.

Most fighters get stopped at some point, because some of Fury’s opponents had previously been stopped, it doesnt follow that they are glass jawed bums; Rogan, Firtha, Pajkic, Maddalone, McDermott and Chisora arent exactly horizontal hevyweights.

The single worst stoppage % I have seen in modern heavyweight boxing at 27%!!!!! If fury couldn’t stop these guys then I would entertain bum talk. These dudes are serious scrubs.

Fight Aficionado not sure I’d go as far as saying Fury has beaten 2 legit top 15 fighters.
The Johnson that turned up with 3 weeks notice certainly wasn’t a top 15 fighter……..Johnson that night would struggle to beat most legit top 30 fighters.
Chisora was an out of shape a 14 fight novice ……..again not really a legit top 15 fighter that night………but even if Chisora DID come in fighting fit that particular night, I STILL do not rate Chisora as a genuine top 15 fighter.

So yep Fury STILL has it all to prove…….he’s not stepped up to fight a genuine top 15 fighter yet.

I wasn’t talkn about when fury and pulev started their careers. I’m saying I’ve been watching fury and known him for years. Dudes had a following in the uk heavy scence and I’m a fan of the uk heavy scene and uk boxing. I’m a fan of boxing in general but I love the heavyweight division. Pulev noone heard of him for awhile he wallowed in obscurity while we watched guys like fury. Now pulev has rocketed past fury and even looks better. And I would say at this time pulev is more likely to be champ but here’s the kicker. Pulev I’m sure is very willing to fight a klitschko and go through the top contenders while it appears fury is not. Also fury is a bit of a feather fist. It wouldn’t matter how old either klitschko was. They would defeat fury. Fury would have to improve 100 fold to for me to say otherwise. I actually really liked furys persnality until his recent smack rant that sounds so delusional I don’t know where to begin. But fury talkin bout knockin people out when he’s a know feather fist, too funny. Knocking domestic scrubs out who have been stopped before doesn’t impress. For me its padding. If fury can stop the top contenders then I will start believing. As it stands I would favor wach to beat fury. How about wachs jaw? Iron

If by “next” champion you mean he’d pick up one of the titles after Wlad and Vitali retire, he’s got as good a chance as anyone in the top 10. If by “next” you mean take a belt from either, no.

Now that’s tellin it like it is. I had a feeling going into the Sanders/Wlad fight there was a possibility of an upset because of Corrie’s power he showed from time to time, but I don’t see Fury having a prayer against either brother now matter how old they are…

Posted April 16, 2013 7:11 pm 


Tell It Like It Is

Tyson Fury must have permanent brain damage since he punched himself in the head during a boxing match, if he really believes he can even get past fighters well beneath the Ks caliber. Delusional thinking is not enough to beat skilled fighters.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

Fury is only 24 and hasn’t even developed his man-strength yet. Give it another 3-4 years and we’ll have a much better idea of what exactly type of HW he’s going to turn out to be. Keep in mind that the Klitschkos and Lewis did not reach their primes until their mid-thirties. If Fury is the same type of HW, he could very well become the champion of the world someday. If he stays dedicated and keeps improving his skills and diet while getting leaner, he might be one helluva tough SOB 8-10 years from now. Only time will tell, but first things first: he’s gotta find a way to get past Cunningham. And I don’t think it’s going to be an easy night for either man.

And second, don’t defend a fighter who just acts dissrespected to the Klitschko brothers and don’t fight impressive fights himself. Tyson Fury have avoided them for a time now and just want to wait out Vitali Klitschko to get enough old to finaly have a chanse of defeating him. Tyson Fury is a poor pick for “Next Heavyweight Champion”.

Posted April 16, 2013 1:24 pm

At 24, Fury has perhaps 3 to 6 years to mature physically and skills and experience wise. For me, RIGHT NOW Wlad would be a heavy favourite to beat Fury, I think he might stand a chance against Vitali however.

RE Fury Vs Wilder –Wilder has not even beaten a top 100 heavyweight as far as I know. Fury has beaten far better opposition than Wilder. All of the following are better than any Wilder opponent; Johnson, Chisora, Rogan, Pajkic, Firtha, McDermott and even Maddalone. Just cannot see how people can tout Wilder over any top ten or twenty heavy right now, he needs to beat a few in the top hundred or top 50 first.

Gumboot whilst you make a valid point you seem to have missed this part of the article “Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs) believes he`ll be the pugilist to end the Klitschko`s reign in the heavyweight division.”

Those debating Klitchko vs Fury are missing the point in this thread. “Will Tyson Fury be the next heavyweight champion?” If he has to fight either Kbrother…NO! IF he has to fight for one or several of the vacated titles….maybe. If the word “next” is left out the answer, I believe, is yes. But Fury doesn’t have to rush. He has time and can actually wait until the brothers have retired. I believe that, injury-free and with the right handling Fury will be a heavyweight title holder. But will he be a champion? That remains to be seen. Good definition below re Valuev and Ruiz – titlists, not champions. Good post!

The 2 Furys would lap up opposing each other but I suppose Hennessey Sports will keep them apart in 3 years time. I’m sticking my neck out with Hughie, but have been impressed with him since before the World Junior Super HW title.
I find Tyson entertaining and am keeping my fingers crossed that he will improve – but I am building him up in my mind, to be truthful. It could well be there will be no opponent for Hughie in the future – the division is still going downhill.

I never commented on any kevin johnsons fight so the guy claiming that below is a crackpot. Fury has thrived thusfar on domestic uk scrubs. Not even really ny global sample. If we look at them prolly people who have been stoped multiple times but I haven’t looked but my guess is that they have. I definetly think fury is a feather fist. I definetly think furys resume is weak as hell. And fury has been on the scene a lot longer than pulev. He’s been getting attention for awhile and has failed to fight any good fighters. Because vitaly fought kevin johnson desnt make kevin johnson any better. That wasn’t much of a fight becaue johnsons not much of a fighter. Pulev has accomplished about 100 times what fury has. And now fury has no leg to stand on when it comes to the smack he just talked. Fury has really accomplished nothing. Stieverne taking on arreola in my eyes is accomplishing more than fury has. Fury is like a trash taking version of povetkin but povetkin has actually faced and beat some good fighters. Fury hasnt

Emperor, I think you missed my point somewhat regarding Holyfield and Ali………I am not at all suggesting that the prime Holyfield or Prime Ali would have the same success in the Klitschko era. (That’s another argument) What I was saying is that Holyfield and Ali did well in their respective eras despite not having big punching power because their skill set was generally so much better than their opponents, it made them competitive amongst their peers.
Byrd did extremely well for a non puncher in his time too……but he had very good skills.
Scott on the other hand neither has the power or a high enough superior skill set to really make any noise in the division.
As for his last fight…….I thought a draw was a fair result…….Scott started well, but seem to switch off for large parts of the latter rounds.

KL, no need to be sorry. Your opinion is the same as mine,… opinion. Scott is a technical fighter he’s not a KO fighter but he does have KO power. Also, to say that he is not Ali or Holyfield is as irrelevent as those 2 fighters would be against the heavyweights of this era. Yeah, I mean Holy and Ali would not be top level. Either Klit is far superior to a Prime big George Foreman. Foreman had to plan but to chase you and hope to back you to the ropes or into the corner and maul you. Klits are very athletic lots of movement and punch like sledgehammers not to mention they are taller and have a lot more in their arsonal. But I digress. The point is that Scott doesn’t need to be an outdated era fighter in a era of athletic Giants. He’s quick, he has out pointed everyone (got absolutely robbed in the last fight as they called a draw against glazcov).

Fury actually has decent punching power; look at his one punch KO’s of Nascimento and Rogan, and remember that at 24 he is not yet fully matured physically, especially a guy his size, who tend to mature later.

He stopped Firtha, who went the distance with both Banks and Povetkin.

He doesnt hit hard like Corrie Sanders, Ernie Shavers or Frank Bruno, but then he doesnt hit soft like Chris Byrd, Jimmy Young or Eddie Chambers either.

Posted April 15, 2013 6:56 pm 


KL

Assyrian God……….you make some salient points……

1)…….. Fury has faced “fair” opposition for his age……..however (no fault of Fury) none of his opponents have come in fighting fit……and Johnson took the fight with only 3 weeks notice which speaks for itself..

2) Almost every opponent has a big size disadvantage…….now sure Fury can’t help that………but my argument is that the bigger men out there (The K bros, Price, Wilder etc) will nullify these advantages somewhat………. which means that Fury will need to rely much more on his skills………and I for one am not yet convinced that he has enough to beat the bigger better men out there.

3) Yes Fury has improved his fitness in his last few fights…….but has he really improved his defense……. again I am not entirely convinced…….40 year old Rogan found Fury pretty easy to hit…….and Johnson hardly threw any offensive punches to test Fury’s defense.

4) Yes Fury talks a lot, and is obviously trying to get the attention of the big boys in the division just like Haye did……..now that shows how confident he is………but that could well be his undoing……..he believes in his own hype and may well over rate himself…….. remember a the other British guy call Audley!!!……..he made the same mistake!

5) Will Fury dethrone the K brothers……….even an improving Fury couldn’t do that!!!

Fury is a loudmouth-a heavyweight loudmouth. If he’s so confident, then why is he fighting Cunningham, a man much smaller and lighter than him? Runnig off at the mouth is Fury’s way of getting a fight with Klitchko. Wlad is in an entirely different class that anyone that Fury has fought. I wish this guy would just go away.

LOL at those mentioning Wilder. For gods sake Wilder has almost literally been trawlinglate night bars to find staggering drunks to knock over. He has fought and beat no one at all as yet. Fury is far and away ahead of Wilder and was beating better fighters than Wilder is facing now before he had even a dozen fights and was still only 20..IE John McDermott is better than any Wilder opponent. Wilder was all over the shop against the very limited Harold Sconiers!

A lot of pretty stupid comments on here re Fury.

1. For a 24 year old he HAS faced consistently good opposition..name an active 24 year old who has faced better??? Wilder is 28 or so and still facing potato sacks.
2. Fury has greatly improved his conditioning, stamina, defence, tactics and shot selection since he turned pro.
3. Fury has a decent stoppage record, and is not a feather fisted puncher.
4. For a 250lb, 6ft 9” young 24 year old Fury actually now moves pretty well, and is quite athletic for such a big man.
5. The Price fight made no financial sense, logically it would be a far bigger fight if one of them won a world title, rather than one of them losing their 0 when both were still developing and with only the British Title on the line.

Talk about pumping up a fighter, the bottom line is that Fury still has a lot of work to do as you’ll see when he fights Steve Cunningham. Fury will probably win due to his enormous physical advantage over Cunningham. However, I expect Cunningham will expose many of Fury’s flaws on the way to losing the fight. Fury is still clumsy at times in the ring and against good opposition of his own size he’ll really struggle. That said, he’s young and he has plenty of time to hone his skills.

THE BOTTOM LINE klistchkos dont need Tyson Furry. Tyson Furry needs the Klistchkos. The Klistchkos have paid there dues in the heavywieght division. If the Klistchkos want to retire soon there is nothinbg wrong with that the Klistchkos dont owe any fighters any fights. Wlad already paid is due in full when he took on DangerousDavid HAYE, AND WON CONVINCEINGLY. Sure it would have been nice to Ko DavidHaye however Wlad was smart in not pressing the action since DavidHaye is Lighting quick and has devestating power.

neil. Thank you. Cant remeber how many times ive said this. Why do people get worked up, its talk, it builds fights, mind games wow if people get hurt by trash talk they shouldnt be in the ring. Talking means nothing so let them get on with it

I like Fury, but everyone knows the K-brothers are not avoiding him

Posted April 15, 2013 1:53 pm 


Neil(pomy)

…. as for his trash talking …. it’s only talk, designed to add interest in the fight and to increase the possibility of the fight being made. It always makes me laugh how people get worked up over what a fighter says; these people are just falling for it like suckers and playing right into Fury’s hands.

Fury should be fighting opponents like: Helenius, Solis, Hanks, Grano, or Dimetrenko over the next year instead of Pulev or the Klitchkos. He still needs more experience. What’s the big rush anyway? It’s not like Fury’s in his mid-30s.

hullk – Yeah, I have seen Fury hurt and decked. He has recovered well from it but still he has been hurt in the ring I cant deny that.

Hardly an accurate article – ‘Fury has never been hurt’. Really, Mr Stilleman?

Posted April 15, 2013 1:07 pm 


Neil(pomy)

For me, Fury simply has more to his game than Price. Price has had too many quick wins and that has worked against him. I think Fury has been matched harder and has left Price behind. Price can come back of cause but the Thompson stoppage is a huge warning sign ……. by the way I think Price beats Thompson in the return.

Posted April 15, 2013 1:01 pm 


Neil(pomy)

… and KL ….. I think Fury beats Price. I have seen Fury get decked and hurt a few times but he always recovers well and fights harder. The same cannot be said about Price. If the two fighters meet I think Fury would beat Price by stoppage. I would put money on it.

I rate high highly but only regarding his potential as he has not faced a true world class heavyweight …. but there are very few world class heavyweights out there in this day and age. All I can rate him on is what I have seen. Up to now his opponent-level has been much better than Dontay Wilder’s. Regarding Fury-v-Wladimir … I think has the sort of confidence and attitude that suggests he feels he believes he can beat him. I feel confident that Fury will use the assets he has …. and his work-rate is one of his biggest asset. So yes, I think Fury’s work-rate will be the same against Wladimir. Dont get me wrong, Wladimir will be the huge betting favourite but I think Fury is a much better opponent than many of the past and future challengers like Pianetta, Thompson, Mormeck, Chambers and Rahman.

wilder has 27 ko’s in 27 fights. Thats awful impressive i dont care who u are fighting!

It will be between fury, or wilder who knocks of the kilts. Even then there is not gaurantee. But i give them 2 the best shot at it. We will see

Fury has good movement and foot work and stamina, but he do not have the punch for a big man. Wilder might KO Fury. Look at Wilders record 27 wins and 27 KO’s..impressive. Audley gonna have a long night with Wilder, then the winner should face Fury. Of the three, Wilder have the big punch.

Posted April 15, 2013 12:47 pm 


KL

Neil(pomy), you rate Fury very highly……..but I’m not convinced.
Fury has had the size advantage on most if not all his previous opponents……….. and to overcome those size advantages his opponents need to be good in shape boxers………but so far Fury hasn’t met any good boxers that have been in shape.
This might give the impression that Fury is better than he actually is.
Do you really think Fury will throw as many punches when he/if he fights Wlad???
Cunningham’s too small to be a danger to Fury………but bigger stronger men are out there who can probably beat or otherwise make Fury look very ordinary.
Price would probably beat Fury in all honesty.

He needs to fight some legit fighters. Most of his fights are with fighters that have a couple weeks notice or that really aren’t that good. The one fight I thought would test him was Chrisora but for some reason Chrisora came in extremely out of shape. That’s not a knock on Fury cause that’s not his fault but that was the only challenging fight so far that he could of had

Posted April 15, 2013 11:55 am 


2slick

As for a challenge to the Klits, I don’t think he actually wants it. He’s not a big puncher so Wlad would be too good over the distance for him.

Posted April 15, 2013 11:54 am 


2slick

The division is in such poor shape he could end up with a belt, but he won’t be dominant like K2 have been. He’s simply not very good. A powder-puff puncher for someone his size he lucked out with a lazy couldn’t be bothered Chisora for his ‘best’ win. He’s technically pretty poor and will get found out soon enough. As it stands when K2 are gone we’re heading for a mid 80′s style merry go round, none of the guys out there is particularly good and they’re all of a similar ‘standard’, unlike the Klitschko’s they’re all solo operators without a brother to make up for their individual shortcomings, so we’re looking at a fractured division with titles consistently changing hands. You decide whether you think that’s a good thing or not. In this case it will be lack of talent rather than over abundance of class a drug abuse that is the root cause though, unlike the 80s.

Eh? Seriusly here, you mr. Tyson Fury is the bum :-) You will not stand a chanse against Wladimir Klitschko and you will eat straight lefts and right hands all night long and get your face bloody beaten so your cheap trash talk is wortless and NO ONE cares for your words. Back up the talk or shut up your boring bum! I’m not that big of a fan but Wladimir Klitschko is the best heavyweight boxer in the world now and been that sence 2006 and still goes on. All the top ones runs from him and brother Vitali and belives they can wait them out – youst like Fury does, man what a bum he is.

Lol I like Fury and think he’s goodfor boxing but thus writer is on another planet! Furys dominated every opponent he has faced? The writer needs to get on YouTube and watch him in the first mcdermott fight then read write this article lol.

He still wouldn’t even get anywhere close wladamir jab would be enough on its own followed by his power shot wladamir would go threw him like a train and send him packing

Posted April 15, 2013 6:59 am 


Neil(pomy)

I think Fury is the best challenger out there for Wladimir. He’s big, has fast hands, can box or brawl, moves well for a big guy and whatever shapes he comes into the ring he always has a very impressive work-rate. I also rate Pulev highly too.

Posted April 15, 2013 6:55 am 


lol

im not a fan of fury, i havent liked his slow awkward horrible style, his gob and his chin isnt that great. BUT…did anyone see his new style against Kevin Cunningham?? he was BOXING and looked in good shape.. he used his long arms and height to jab and move. if he used that style against Wlad he may stand a great chance of winning. if however he goes back to his old style, no chance

For example Donaire might look good against some opponents but against a very athletic Rigondeaux he was made to be very average…

It is very hard to see Fury becoming the HW champion. Two main important attributes missing from Tyson Fury is the body movement and reflexes which makes him very easy to get caught against better opponents. Having a good chin is one thing but taking unnecessary shots is another….

It’s true that Tyson Fury is a traverler, but not in the boxing sence. If he was then he would have fought Pajkic in Canada & Johnson in the USA!

Posted April 15, 2013 6:03 am 


OneInchPunch

“prepared to take challenges”… that’s why he ran away from David Price… actually he vacated two belts in the process. Fury has been managed well… hence his next fight with a cruiser weight… Now that’s taking a big risk!! The words mismatch after round four come to mind.

You fools are deluded. Both K bros would KO him inside of 6. There are many others that would KO Fury if he ever had the stones to take on a hard hitting heavyweight. Fury attributes are, slow plodding, uncoordinated, unfit, feather fisted, china chinned loud mouth. Absolute joke of a pugilist who has suckered in many people aboard his hype job fraud train. Chooooooo Choooooo!! Suckers

Im just getting sick of the K Bros fighting guys like Mormeck, Charr and Pianetta. The wach fight was a good fight but there are guys who would take out old Vitali and really test Wlad. These fights are just not happening. Fury would give wlad a much harder fight than Wach as would Pulev.

Posted April 15, 2013 3:50 am 


AssyrianGod2

Fury certainly has a great chance of dethroning the K bros. A better chance than anyone else I can think of, and he is active and prepared to take challenges, unlike many young heavies out there. Author is wrong about being hurt; he was hurt by Pajkic, Chisora and McDermott earlier in his career, but not seriously, and he has improved drastically since those fights.
