deontay will destroy fury – just saying

To be honest I want to see a Fury-Cunningham rematch. I know they helping each other out now in Fury’s camp since USS was helping Fury prepare for Haye, but USS deserves his rematch down the road. A natural cruiser, but one of the more refined heavyweights. Had he paced himself more he upsets the Primo Carnera-like Fury.

Rich, as well as the sake of the fans who want to see some action. Would have liked to see Wilder matched up with Ortiz. They’re in the same promotion. But risky business fights like that don’t happen as much nowadays.

KL, good points on defense. If you have great defense your chin doesn’t matter so much. Look how great Wlad got under the tutelage of Emmanuel. My biggest concern regarding Wilder is not so much what happened in the ring with him as the fights that have NOT happened in the 5 plus years that he’s been pro. I agree Liakovich wasn’t completely shot, he was hit by devastating shots. And I never thought Fraudly was quite as fraudulent as the British seem to unanimously suggest. Granted Harrison was not championship material. Harrison’s chin and defense never came together. I’m high on Fury, his brother, Joshua, and Wilder. They are the best of the new crop.

Posted November 23, 2013 5:03 pm

How good is Deontay’s chin, stamina AND defence?!? LOT of question marks about the guy still! He should increase the quality of his opposition for his own sake.

Posted November 23, 2013 4:34 pm

Tony, sensible comments my friend.
Granted Wilder looked vulnerable when he was off balance, and that’s something I hope his team are working hard to rectify.
That said, Wilder senses were quick enough to avoid getting tagged by that Firtha punch even if it didn’t look pretty.
Whilst Fraudley was no world beater, he had just come off a second “Prize fighter” win, suggesting that Faudley wasn’t quite as cooked as some people have stated.
Liahkovich took everything that Jennings threw at him and manage to fire back at times, so again I don’t buy those that say Liahkovic was “totally shot. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think wins against Fraudley or Liahkovic make Wilder anything special, but I think those very quick wins do indicate that Wilder isn’t a “fraud” as some suggest.
As for the Sconiers fight, yeah sure that may indicate a fragile chin, but then again it was only his 9th fight I think, and Wilder has come on since then, also since Wilder came back to stop Sconiers in Rd 4, it does indicate that Wilder has the ability to come back.
Like I say though it’s Wilder’s defensive skills I am more interested in, not really whether he has a chin or not, If Wilder like Haye & the K brothers can minimize getting hit then that is more important to Wilder’s arsenal.
Wilder ticks all the boxes as far as offense goes, I’d like team Wilder to concentrate more on defense as this could be his Achilles heel.

Posted November 23, 2013 4:08 pm 


Tony1244

KL, Wilder was very off balance in the 1st round against Firtha. I think he may be over protected. We will find out by whether he takes the Fury fight. But I agree he puts punches together well and has good speed. He has 3 strikes against him 1) he hasn’t fought anyone with a pulse 2) Sconiers knocked him down and 3) that first round of Firtha looked ugly.

Posted November 23, 2013 3:40 pm 


Tony1244

Gonzo, we’re having a language barrier. Wilder’s power isn’t an issue. His ducking people and not fighting anybody is. Offending me is impossible. Try something else.

Sadly many have fixed views on Wilder, that probably won’t budge even if he beats Fury. Those that say Wilder is a total fraud will likely claim that he got “lucky” against Fury, or that Fury wasn’t of sound mind when he took the fight. Those that don’t have such a polarized fix view on Wilder should be able to observe that Wilder DOES have some good assets, punching power and fast hands(often this is totally neglected), he also can land punches pretty accurately, that said Wilder is NOT the finished article, he still swings too wildly at times and his balance seems a tad unstable at times. People keep asking whether Wilder has a chin or not, but the more valid question is how good is Wilder’s defense?

Posted November 23, 2013 3:23 pm 


Tony1244

Dumbo, great name for you. Perhaps you should learn to read. I said Wilder can punch period. If he hits Fury hard, Fury will go down. What happens after that remains to be seen. Sounds like you’re still in recovery from the Abdusamolov beatdown.

Boxer…Yes I seen some footage of Haye sparring Wilder…and Wilder leaves alot to be desired in overall skills.If you can avoid his early big shots then your pretty safe I would say.And if I recall didnt Wilder get knocked down by a club fighter in one of his fights???

Posted November 23, 2013 1:30 pm 


Boxer

Did you guys see deontay sparring haye?, now I learned a couple of things about wilder 1 he swings really wide and sloppy with no tactics, or skill, 2 as long as you keep calm and you aren’t intimidated by his size than he’s pretty much easy work for any heavyweight contender! Heck James toney might be able to still pull a win on him!,

Fury won’t get up after being hit by Wilder. I would rather see Furry win but it ain’t gonna happen. Just a guess but Deontay hits harder than Cuningspam.

Posted November 23, 2013 12:13 pm

Fury can get knocked down but gets up fast with a clear head and fires back hard..like a wake-up call.Wilder hits hard but could it be abit overrated since he only fought stiffs and shot fighters??And if Wilder dosent get Fury out of there in 3 or 4 rds. will he be able to out box him…will he have stamina as the fight unfolds??Fury been alot more tested and came through,showing he has some tricks and tools to survive and win…Wilder hasnt at this point.Also Fury looks like the better all around boxer-fighter at this point.The little we could see from Wilder because of the lack of decent fighters he faced he still looked clumsey..akward..and didnt like being under any pressure or taking a shot,which isnt a good sign.

Anyone saying Fury has been successful only because of his size makes a decent point, but at the same time, it’s also a stupid point. It’s the HW division, for big men, and being tall is an advantage. You could say the name about Wilder too and any number of fighters. Deontay is largely untested yet and hasn’t looked comfortable under the pressure he HAS faced. Fury has faced better opposition than Wilder has, no question. Sure, Wilder can punch, but how good is Wilder’s chin, and his stamina, hmm? He has never gone into the sixth round. Will he fold like David Price did? A lot of questions about Deontay, yet.

Cunningham knocked Fury down. If Wilder lands, he will knock Fury out. True, he’s been fighting mostly stiffs, but Deontay can punch.

Posted November 23, 2013 11:04 am 


Gonzo the Vulture

Wilder couldn’t punch his way out of a wet paper bag. He hasn’t fought anyone with a pulse yet. He’s literally been feasting on a diet of stiffs. A Hughie Fury jab would knock him sparko in no more than 30 seconds.

Yep both fury and wilder beat adamek all day long. I hope this fight happens only way this could be a ppv is if the undercards are good and would have to involve a lot of USA vs UK matches to make it a sort of theme burns vs Crawford could be one. But if it’s not a ppv then promoters will just have to take a big risk. But winning means a top 5 ranking and close to a world title shot

Posted November 23, 2013 8:53 am

Fury and wilder would both beat Ademek. His loss to Vitali was one of the most one-sided heavyweight title fights i have seen.

Posted November 23, 2013 8:25 am 


Reality

What?! Is that the same Adamek that was embarrassed and utterly useless against Vitali?

Posted November 23, 2013 7:45 am 


WHAT!?!

The saddest thing about the heavyweight rankings is that Wilder would KO Fury and then claim to be a top rated fighter. Yet, little Adamek would beat both of them over the distance. It’s a good call and challenge by Wilders camp because Fury has absolutely nothing, which is a little less than Wilder’s arsenal.

Posted November 23, 2013 6:44 am 


Neil (Pomy)

Nice, im leaning towards Fury but Price has huge power and Fury is easily hit. It is an interesting matchp but a step up in opponent-level for Wilder. Winner should fight one of the K-bro’s

Posted November 23, 2013 6:42 am

Fury down and out inside 3. Wilder doesn’t hang around and Fury had only been successful because of his size advantage. And his chin is woeful.

Posted November 23, 2013 5:59 am 


Blacker

Fury already called him out, they weren’t so keen. Now he’s fed up, they think they can capitalise on that. Why is it so hardto get FIGHTERS to fight. So much tricks and games. Please stay retired Fury, it’s not worth it. Let them put a million pounds in a third party account. If they pull out or the fight doesn’t happen for any reason pertaining to them, then fury gets the money, and vice versa. I think negotiations for fights need to go a step further, to prevent hayeism.

A 50 50 between 2 young unbeaten heavy weights that’s generating a lot of excitement. Both fighters and camps want the fight as they want to progress to a klitchcow shot which is good to see. But promoting site will stop this fight taking place both fighters are taking a big risk and a loss is likely to be by brutal ko so all reputation and future earnings are hit hard. Channel 5 im UK cannot make this a huge eventand this fight isn’t big enough for ppv just yet so to make this fight happen promoting has to take a risk and snow true confedence in thier man. I don’t know how to call it but I can’t see fury getting up from a wilder right

Let the fight happen. It’s a big money fight. Wilder is more athletic and his a bigger punch. Fury seems to have better skills and has more proven experience. Both match up physically. An awesome fight.

Posted November 23, 2013 3:34 am 


Farmboxer

Let this fight happen. I think Fury is a better fighter than Wilder, as he has fought, by far, the better competition. Wilder needs to land his big wild right hand, but how powerful is his right hand? Nobody really knows because Wilder has never fought anyone ranked. David Haye beat the crap out of Wilder in sparring. Vladimir Klitschko knocked Wilder down with a left jab, totally outclassed him. Wilder has only one punch, the right hand and we don’t know what it would do to a legit boxer. Fury does have power, speed, he can go 12 rounds if needed………..

big head

if steve cunningham can knock tyson fury down and hurt him just imagin what wilder will do to him then again i think fury let his gaurd down in the cunningham fight he got overconfident cause cunningham was smaller and he caught with a good punch i think fury will have a lil more respect for wilder and not leave his hands down and have his gaurd up but fury is tough tho and he can take a good shot he knows how to use his size well and we still dont know if wilder can take a good shot or not and he still havent been to many rounds yet either but i dont see fury taking to many of those right hands from wilder tho and i still cant get that steve cunningham fight out my head him getting dropped by a cruiserweight one thing fury going to try to do is rough wilder up on the inside trying to wear him out with his size getting rough and dirty trying to get wilder out his game trying to break his will on the inside will take away wilder power to wilder needs distance and space to land that right hand when u close to him it going to be hard for him to land it it be a interesting fight if it happens but i favor wilder to win tho if they do fight

Posted November 23, 2013 1:48 am 


TNT

What I don’t understand about Wilder is that after 29 fights still hasn’t fought not even a fringe contender, but the best fighter he fought was clearly a shot fighter, Been knockout by the of the last 6 fighters. There most be a reason why his management team has but him in with such soft opposition. Probable because the mangegment team most be afraid that a real heavywieght that is just a fingeconteder will expose as a fraud. Take Wider’s last oponnent landed just a jab, and he appeared uncomfortable with being hit. David Haye would KO Wilder. Sounds like Crawford Grimsley of the 90s all over again.

I can see the contracts for this being a factor. Isn’t Fury normally on Channel 5 UK, it was only Haye’s people that got their fight to Sky PPV and so assuming he can’t do the same with a Wilder fight, it’s unlikely this would be profitable. Even at midnight in the UK it’s still be too early to be a PPV card in the US and so the revenue just wouldn’t be there. As much as it may pain Fury to admit id, Haye was the big draw in that fight and unless he’s willing to go 70-30 in Wilder’s favour, this won’t happen.

everyone’s still criticizing Wilder for not fighting anyone… maybe missed the point of the open letter – he’s calling out the biggest name in the heavyweight division who’s not a Klitchko or previous klitchko victim.

i agree with a previous comment – even if Wilder ko’s fury in 1 round, people will say – “oh, fury wasn’t that good anyway… he got knocked down by steve cunningham a cruiserweight… wilder hasn’t been tested… etc”

“I can see Wilder knocking Fury out, and then everyone still moaning that he’s not been tested!” – Why would you see that? The reason people say Wilder is untested is because he’s not faced a single top 40 opponent. Fury is legit top 10, and would be his first decent opponent.

Audley Harrison is pathetic and a bum. We’ll see what Wilder is when he finally steps up the comp. Unfortunately a limey Wanker like the absurdly named Tyson Fury doesn’t represent such an upgrade. A guy who is rocked by his own fist in a fight and goes life and death with a feather-fisted cruiserweight won’t tell us much about Wilder. I expect Wilder-Fury to go much the way of Monte Barrett-Ty Fields. Hope the ref doesn’t get crushed by the falling timber!

We will get to see if TYSON FURY can really take a punch for he will surely catch a few from the Wild Man, WILDER!

We will also get to see what Wilder has as he will have to negotiate a man who can hustle him right out his boots!

FURY has a fighting heart and may not look like much style wise, but he is determined and the strengths both men have will be balanced by their obvious weaknesses that will make for a glorious slugfest and as i said one of them having to pick up his teeth, whilst nursing an embarrassed ego…
