TONY1244 – I reckon Assyriangod was saying Browne cant fight for the Euro belt, not Fury, Fury is a Brit so he can fight for Commonwealth or Euro, Browne can only fight Commonwealth and OPBF Titles.Posted January 8, 2014 6:23 pm

Fury’s at it again on Twitter. 1 minute ago he posted @ Wilder and GBP: Tyson2FASTfury. @Tyson_Fury 1m Also just to clarify @BronzeBomber is a (expletive) (expletive). (expletive) who won’t fight me.? All talk. Come on @GoldenBoyBoxing put up or shut up. (expletive)Posted January 8, 2014 4:33 pm
“Fight Aficionado…, The deal is this. As soon as Wilder responded enthusiastically to Fury’s challenge to fight — Fury tweeted, “I’m retired and will never fight again. I’m 1000% serious.” – TARK that’s false and you know it. Fury retired when the Haye fight unraveled for the second time. Your version is nonsense. Later when he decided he wasn’t retired Fury on Dec. 27 called out Wilder who has yet to reply.Posted January 8, 2014 4:30 pm

Well, I just read that Fury signed with Frank Warren, so IMO we can kiss the Wilder fight good-bye. Warren is already talking about a Fury vs Chisora rematch in June or July. Warren will now milk Furys career, as its a “long term” contract. Just a guess but I see, Fury vs tomato can in the spring, Fury vs Chisora in the summer, and Fury vs an overmatched opponent with a name in the fall. It will be 2015 before Fury fights a legit threat. I will say it in advance, BORING!Posted January 8, 2014 12:06 pm
So don’t fight chisora again you idiot. Pointless fight.Posted January 8, 2014 11:48 am
isn’t Fury retired? Aren’t he and Haye giving each other back rubs on the South Beach?Posted January 8, 2014 11:47 am
Fury has to stop talking and start fighting real soon. He has to forget about the zero on his resume, a huge purse, or the dream shot against Vlad. There’s nothing wrong with one or two tune-ups against some lower level experienced contenders like Oquendo, Gerber, Towers, Hanks, or Welliver. Get busy!Posted January 8, 2014 11:11 am
I like the idea of Tyson Fury, and when I first saw him, I though he had it all, youth, size and skills. He is, however, his own worst enemy.
Canuck, it’s frustrating when the top guys never fight each other. Why won’t Fury fight Browne NOW? Why won’t Wilder fight Pulev NOW? What the hell is everyone waiting for? At least UFC has the common sense to put the best against the best. Boxing continuously has two unbeaten fighters on the same card fighting two guys with .500 records. The guys with .500 records should be fighting each other and the best should be fighting the best. That’s just common sense.Posted January 8, 2014 10:34 am
TONY1244…Yes I give Browne respect he is willing to fight lately and seems like a good guy.But yes his skill level is without a doubt pretty much below Fury…CANUCK…Good to see you post again,been a long time.I know being abit of a old timer myself the fight game changed.Some will say this stuff always happened and ofcourse it did to a point…but not like whats happening today overall.But its still fun to see whats going to happen…some good fights out there in the hvwt. div. but yes getting these guys together is like trying to find 100 dollar bills in the streets..lol.Posted January 8, 2014 10:31 am
This whole mess is a good example of why I am not very interested in boxing any longer after being an avid fan or over 50 years.You can only take so much crap.Posted January 8, 2014 10:12 am
DWC, I agree, I’d favor Fury over Browne. But Browne has surprised everyone with his late start in boxing.Posted January 8, 2014 9:58 am
Browne is a tough guy but very very limited as a boxer.Fury would take him to school big time,Browne would look like a amature.As for Wilder he was offered the fight with Fury after Haye pulled out the first time but Golden Boy Wilders people said there wasnt enough time to get ready…fair enough.After the second pull out from Haye,there was the Wilder call out from Fury and the crazy retirement talk which most people knew was Fury talking crap.But Peter Fury soon after talked to Wilder and his team to make the fight…but team Wilder had unrealist demands their way of walking away.But Fury needs to make 2014 his year by getting some solid fights and Browne would be a good first fight a guy who could give you rounds but is in no way having the skill level as Fury.If Fury keeps his head together dosent get depressed and get blown-up out of shape and fall into bad habits…he should be holding a belt in 2015 or abouts.Posted January 8, 2014 9:52 am
Assyrian God, Browne’s title is the Commonwealth Title. My source (boxrec) said the Fury, Price, and Chisora were former champions. You may very well be right that Fury is eneligible for it, I just don’t understand why.Posted January 8, 2014 9:43 am

To the infidel referring to himself as “Khan’s Cuz” that is trying to tell me how to spell my own name I spit curses on you.

The best move for Tyson right now is to give Chisora the rematch he’s screaming for, its the right move for many different reasons.Posted January 8, 2014 8:52 am
Err Fury called out Wilder, Browne, Chisora and laughably RJJ. Browne responded within 2 days. Fury goes quiet except for this little bleat, whine and whinge. KO an undefeated tough guy in Browne and earn back your ranking, dimwit. China chinned, uncoordinated, feather fisted, plodders do a lot of talking yet never back it up. Fury is a joke.Posted January 8, 2014 7:25 am
МPosted January 8, 2014 4:17 am
Least Fury has decent fighters on his resume, he walks the walk. Wilder’s beaten no names and a couple of shot old guys. So how can some folks on here say Wilder beats Fury or any other top rate guy? Who has he beat to prove himself? Wilder is a total grade A Fraud!Posted January 8, 2014 4:16 am
Tony 1244 – Browne holds the Commonwealth belt, not the European, as an Australian he is illegible for European title fights.Posted January 8, 2014 4:12 am
There’s a growing awareness among boxers, and athletes in general, of traumatic brain injuries in contact sports… Of course this is as a result of persistent news media attention on the subject.
This seems to be giving bigger punchers more difficulty in getting the right fights. If a potential opponent has knocked out his last 15 opponents or his last 30 opponents, there’s a tendency for boxers to look in other directions.
Prospective opponent, “Sure I’ll fight him—if the money is right.”
Promoter, “What amount of money would make you happy?”
Prospective opponent, “How about 3 million dollars?”
Promoter, “Well…that’s over my limit—but you’re got yourself a fight.”
Prospective opponent, “Not so fast… How about 6 million dollars?”Posted January 8, 2014 1:30 am
Fight Aficionado…, The deal is this. As soon as Wilder responded enthusiastically to Fury’s challenge to fight — Fury tweeted, “I’m retired and will never fight again. I’m 1000% serious.”
After that it’s hard to say Wilder is the guy who won’t fight. It’s not a money issue. It’s a big money fight. Wilder hits hard and that’s an issue for potential opponents.Posted January 8, 2014 12:39 am
Op Amp I do think Fury vs Wilder is a good fight. But the notion it’s Fury ducking him makes no sense if you look at their respective comp and the fact it’s been Fury calling him out not the other way around. At this point Wilder just needs to start fighting top 30 comp.Posted January 7, 2014 9:48 pm
Lucas Browne says he will get to Fury, after Browne’s European Title defense in April. My question is why can’t Browne defend this European title against Fury?Posted January 7, 2014 9:39 pm
Wilder wanted to get some rounds in… But he needs to fight somebody better than Firtha to get rounds… His stupid match-makers have to get to work… Line up Fury if you can.. He needs to fight somebody.Posted January 7, 2014 9:03 pm
Fury might come away with daft comments but atleast he’s beat some decent fighters chisora’ johnson an cunningham and he also ko’d firtha in only his 13th fight while its taken wilder 30 fights to fight someone like firthaPosted January 7, 2014 7:47 pm
This article asserts that Wilder looked more impressive than Fury in the last year??? Well, so would Kenneth Williams if you put 28 sacks of spuds and two octogenarians in front of him! Duhh. Wilder shouldnt even be in the top 10, and to my mind USS Cunningham is a better fighter than Mitchell who Arreola beat.Posted January 7, 2014 7:13 pm
FA – I see, thats interesting. I dont know why Wilder has been brought along so slowly, ( other then waiting for the klitschkos to get old),, but I dont see fury having the speed or defence to aavoid all of wilders bombs. Maybe wilder is another d. Price, and will fold under some heavy pressure, but I am highly impressed with his power at this point! If they fight, I see a 6’9″ fury a quivering mass on the canvas, in one of the most “disturbing” KOs of the decade!Posted January 7, 2014 6:57 pm

You hear Wilder say anything since Fury called him out on Dec. 27? He never responded even when Fury did so at him directly via Twitter.Posted January 7, 2014 6:06 pm
Furys only real concern should be running away from Wilder as fast as he can! It will save him from being a candidate for KO of the year/decade.Posted January 7, 2014 5:40 pm
Fury’s comments make a lot more sense than the WBCriminals putting Arreola back in with Stiverne for the vacant title. How does a guy drop to 8 without losing a bout while another guy who lost is at #2? Ask the deranged WBC.Posted January 7, 2014 5:35 pm
anonymous sucks. sorry you must be a spook.Posted January 7, 2014 4:59 pm
The fact Seth Mitchell was ranked so high says it all about the WBC heavyweight rankings. It’s a question of how these fighters get such a high ranking in the first place.Posted January 7, 2014 4:59 pm
Did you guys forget that after losing to Stiverne, Arreola beat Mitchell, who was ranked in the top 3 by the wbc for beating Banks? That’s why Arreola is now ranked #2. It’s only fair, #1 faces #2 for the vacant belt, Right?Posted January 7, 2014 4:34 pm
What an appalling article written by someone who clearly doesn’t understand how the ranking system works. Here’s a big clue: if you are a big name in your own country and can pull in the ppv figures then you are miraculously elevated into a high spot. Why do you think haye was sat so highly despite only beating chisora in two years? The boxing industry is corrupt and the sanctioning bodies want popular fighters to increase their revenues from big fights. Is it a coincidence that mandatory challengers tend to be from large, modernised countries such as US, Germany, UK, Russia etc? When was the last mandatory challenger that came from Botswana?Posted January 7, 2014 4:17 pm
Fury should fight Wilder for the next mandatory.Posted January 7, 2014 4:16 pm
Anonymous, it’s spelled THEY’RE. You meant to say ‘because they’re all retards’, not ‘because their all retards’. You absolute retard, lol! Must be a chav…Posted January 7, 2014 4:14 pm
Fury fought 1 or 2 elimination fights and got dropped because of inactivity due to no fault of his own but haye.
Fury should be able to pick any fight he wants outside bermain and waldmir.Posted January 7, 2014 4:06 pm

NED…I agree…but lets not forget its not Fury fault that Haye pulled out 2x…holding Fury up for half the year…Posted January 7, 2014 4:02 pm
For a while, it seemed nothing could stop Fury’s climb to the top. But look at him now, just another bottom contender who lost momentum and top ratings through his own inactivity. It’s sad to watch; as a former Fury fan, I’m not happy about his decline. Yet the only way Fury can get out of this slump is to fight someone (anyone) real soon.Posted January 7, 2014 3:51 pm
because their all retards.Posted January 7, 2014 3:47 pm
Ofcourse Fury should be ranked higher,the Haye nonsence held him up.Now we get a guy like Wilder ranked high,who fought no one and him and his team ducked Fury when it came down to talks..contract.But saying that its a new year and Fury needs to put his nose to the grind stone get back in the ring and fight and forget about the Haye situation.2014 can be a solid year for Fury,proving himself again and moving towards a title shot.Posted January 7, 2014 3:45 pm
Fury sucks!! point blank why is it more can not see that?Posted January 7, 2014 3:28 pm
Anonymous you ar$ehole, give it a rest.Posted January 7, 2014 3:25 pm
Fury is a good hw contender, but he really needs to stay busy. The long layoff because of the diva Haye followed by his retirement announcement made the WBC relegate him. Time to get in the ring again, Tyson, and show them all where you belong in the ranks!Posted January 7, 2014 3:23 pm
who gives a sh#t. the hw division has been a freak show for nearly 20 years.Posted January 7, 2014 3:17 pm
Thanks, Swedish Boxing Fan, yeah, Fury v Wilder in 2014 would take one of them out of the equation and the winner could look forward to a shot at the title. It would be worth it, just for the pre-fight build-up! :)Posted January 7, 2014 3:13 pm
Oh dear, his mom will have to wait even longer for a new caravan. He is no good at boxing, does any one know if he is any good at tarmacking drives?Posted January 7, 2014 2:56 pm
Terrible. I’m not high on Fury but he deserves to be ranked. This is the same organization that ranked someone as a ma fort after coming off losses and beating someone that was also not ranked but yet was elevated to the mandatory status but yet the drop Fury. Shows why the titles are worthlessPosted January 7, 2014 2:20 pm
Cry some more Fury you halfwit.
Beating Kevin Johnson gives you the opportunity of fighting for the belt?
The big oaf needs to fight someone worth a damn and then come back to us.
Why not Tony Thompson? Oh too hard for you is it ? GTFO you jokePosted January 7, 2014 2:17 pm
Swedish Boxing Fan
Xavier – Thanks comrade :-), Yes I agree, I also had those thods of how Chris Arreola and Deontay Wilder are up there as well and like you said, Arreola lost his Eleminator bout to Stiverne for the Nr1# spot and yeah Tyson Fury was there and ready but its true that David Haye’s circus acts took so much time from his fight plans so it all became a mess.
If Fury had not been so “dumb” with the retirement rumors he created, he could have avoided some of the fall in the rank.
Tyson Fury needs to prove himself inm the ring like Deontay Wilder and it seems that we all want that fight to happen with Fury vs Wilder in 2014.
Also when Tyson Fury called out Roy Jones Jr among others near christmas time, he made a joke of himself by calling out a smaller, older legend that never was a real heavyweight at all but one time. There he lost more credibility to boxing world and have to fight himself up again.Posted January 7, 2014 2:05 pm
BooooohooooooPosted January 7, 2014 2:04 pm
Some good remarks there, Swedish Boxing Fan. Tyson Fury could do with getting a good win and taking his career seriously again. Haye messed everyone around. Fury also has a point though about Arreola getting a chance at a vacant title when he already had a shot at the title and already lost to Stiverne. He lost to Adamek too. And what’s with Deontay Wilder ranking so highly with the WBC? Awful.Posted January 7, 2014 1:45 pm
Khan’s Cuz Achmed
Fury is a complete infidel. Stay away from my family you carnival freak. 2014 is the year of King Amir Khan. Pacquiao and Mayweather are sweating bullets to avoid my cuz. He will behead the infidel’s and cash those checks in 2014! Allah is great!Posted January 7, 2014 1:42 pm
To be honest you don’t deserve to be in the ranks all you got is height. Your boxing skills suck.Posted January 7, 2014 1:22 pm
Swedish Boxing Fan
In a traditional way, a fighter has to defeat top opponents in order to climb the ranks and Tyson Fury did that BUT being inactive for 8 months with-out fighting + going public on the internet with retirement rumors = Dropping in ranks. Fight some good opponent and you will bounce back there.Posted January 7, 2014 1:18 pm
Tyson, Tyson!Posted January 7, 2014 1:08 pm
We all know by now that the alphabet bodies are corrupt and favor some over others. I don’t really care for Fury, but I do agree with him regarding the two who will be fighting for Klitchko’s belt when he retires. If someone has already beaten another fighter, then why should they fight again when there are so many who never had the opportunity? Also, if someone has already been given a shot at a title, why not make room for someone who didn’t have the chance? I doubt that anyone could rationally answer my questions because it’s the irrrational WBC.Posted January 7, 2014 12:56 pm
