I have to agree that 20 pounds heavyier will not be to Tyson Fury’s advantage. This fight just got more difficult for him and I can smell and upset happening.

I had a look at Abell´s record !!!
He is a nobody – Fury in the 1st !

Until Fury gets in the ring with his robe off we won’t know what condition he is in as with weighing in clothed he could easily have loaded himself with weight to give everyone a false impression. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was in the best condition he’s ever been and has fooled everyone. On the other hand the clothes could be hiding the fact he’s been on the pies and is more resembling the blob than an athlete which also wouldn’t be a surprise – we’ll have to wait and see..

“This is PPV, wouldn’t watch it for free personally.” I find it hard to believe someone would comment on this board and knows who Joey Abell is but wouldn’t watch it for free.

I’m not really giving Abell a chance and I think you’d be pretty crazy to put money on him.
Pulev showed exactly where Abell stands and it’s nowhere near at the top level. Pulev pretty much landed on Abell at will and I think took only maybe 2 or 3 clean shots in return. If you haven’t seen that fight and only heard “Pulev got knocked down” you have to watch it and see the actual knockdown… it’s legit (as it was caused by a punch), but it was actually blocked and solely due to Pulev being momentarily off balance. Immediately after the ‘knockdown’ (i.e. literally seconds after the count), Pulev proceeds to beat the intestines out of Abell.

Abell’s handspeed is a little slow, though he does know to throw through the opponent’s shots which I guess would explain how he KO’ed so many lesser fighters. His durability seems to be questionable.

He probably does hit harder than Cunningham but Cunningham is a top level fighter with top level skills and handspeed… he actually has the ability to land. Abell simply doesn’t have those attributes.

I see him being a live opponent for the first round, but from the second round onwards, Fury is going to put a systematic beatdown on this guy. I’d be surprised if it went past the fourth.

Chisora on the other hand has a bit of a task ahead of him if Johnson shows up fit and ready!

He will play with abell. Abell is not fighting a 6’4 pulev fury is 5 in hes taller than abell and pulev. Easy win for fury

piechucker

TARK – good posts. your right, fury has never looked boxing-fit. 274 is not good. it seems likely he was too embarrassed to show his gut at the way in. that said, abell is a club fighter and will be lucky if he sees the fifth round

Posted February 15, 2014 2:39 am 


Blacker

He weighed in with his clothes on, that top he’s wearing can weight 3 pounds. I think he would’ve weighed around 268 if he didn’t have clothes on, but that will still be 14 pounds more than he weighed against Cunningham. He’s been out for a yr, and is trying to lose the Christmas weight. At 6’9, 268 is not too bad.

This is PPV?? Wouldn’t watch for free personally. Lets hope Abell, a no hoper really, gets a lucky shot in. If Fury v Chisora is a battle of britain then it just goes to show that british boxing is in serious decline. Fury doesnt and never will belong alongside names like Lewis, Benn, Collins, Eubank, Calzaghe, Hatton and Froch (but to name a few)

Coming in heavy…..translated. Abell mustn’t b going 2 give Fury any trouble. Make what u want of that? Scripted? Or is Fury just that much better? Abell has nothing 2 lose, go 2 the body than swing 4 the fences. Might get lucky, I don’t think the result will change. If Fury is a contender he should blast Abell out.

“Hughie Fury and Chisora have good fights for them. It’s not that bad of a card. Don’t understand all the criticism.” – Tyson Fury, Hughie and Chisora in separate bouts is indeed a fun card. Criticism is because it’s PPV, which should be reserved only for Superfights.

Abell is getting paid enough to lose… He’s getting loser’s pay.

If you win against guys like Fury is the only time you ever get paid. Unfortunately for Abell, that takes raw talent, a good trainer, and several years of consistent effort.

Bo Bo Olson

The Klitchkos almost always came in at 250 or a bit less. They never come in fat bellied. So much for his father the trainer…they were not running on a beach and training all day. And no Kentucky Fried Chicken in Belgium….lots of world class beer. Fury will be slow on his feet, ponderous and I hope his journeyman opponent says I’m not getting paid enough to lose.

@Tolstoy, a fighter doesn’t need “stay busy” fights to stay in shape, he needs it to maintain ring smarts and sharpness. Fury on the other hand being a lazy slob clearly requires extra motivation to merely stay relatively fit. He’s a disgrace but what can you expect from someone who’s never had to work hard – he isn’t going to change now is he… what a slob.

Fury could weigh 374 lbs and come in looking like Butterbean and he’d still beat Joey Abell.

Posted February 14, 2014 3:29 pm 


TARK

Michael Jennings… Now there’s a heavyweight who is always in shape from a conditioning stance. Not from a musculature point of view, but he doesn’t have ANY fat at all. When Jennings weighs in at 218 he has more muscle and strength than guys who weigh 240.

Haye looked much stronger than Chisora—and he gave up 37 pounds. Haye, Floyd, Wladimir, and Ward are more the ideal musculature you try to achieve. Jennings looks like he might do curls with a barbell and that’s a no-no for boxers — but heavyweights should be as fit as anyone else. No need to be fat.

Posted February 14, 2014 3:29 pm 


Rustybucket

Not impressed at at all.

I feel pretty safe in saying Tyson is no longer a serious contender, but he will win, because frankly his opponent is exceedingly poor and he can get away with it this time.

As has already been pointed out, it appear Tyson has been beaten by David Haye without even getting in the ring.

Posted February 14, 2014 3:17 pm 


TARK

He’s hiding his fat…

I can easily put on 25 pounds without ever looking fat in the face or stomach.. You wouldn’t even think I gained a pound if I was dressed. But it’s the quality of the weight. Is it ripped muscle like David Haye is left with at the weighin??? Or is it soft and ill defined, like Kubrat Pulev looked in his last couple fights? Wladimir is always in shape, even when he starts training.

If you can pinch anything you’re not in shape. If you don’t have ripped abs, calves, shoulders, obliques, and back, you’re not in shape. I have actually never seen Tyson Fury in the condition that I would call “boxing fit” … and most of the time he looks terrible.

I’m sure Furty is happy with his weight with his delusional personality.

Posted February 14, 2014 3:08 pm 


Tolstoy

I’m not surprised. This is what happens when a fighter doesn’t stay busy. Fury could’ve easily taken one or two tune-up bouts while he was sitting around waiting for that idiot Haye. It’s a shame, Fury’s a disappointment to the sport and his own fans.

Posted February 14, 2014 3:01 pm

274 is still too much, but Tyson holds weight well.

Posted February 14, 2014 2:57 pm

Ok, I retract my earlier statement, Tyson looks fitter than his weight at the weight-in suggests.

Hughie Fury and Chisora have good fights for them. It’s not that bad of a card. Don’t understand all the criticism.

Abell got knocked out by Andrew Greeley back in 2008. Greeley has lost roughly 20 fights in a row since then…yet Abell is Fury’s “worst nightmare”. What a freaking joke. No wonder Fury is swallowing entire buckets of KFC followed by watching a James Toney home workout video.

hey look closer and think mr mcGoo. tyson has sweatshirt,jewerlry,sneakers,pants,hat and phone in the pocket. his real weight is closer to 260. is it really that hard to think sometimes? also look at his face. he shows no signs of being bloated or heavy.

He didn’t look fat in the photo.

In fact, his cheekbones looked sharp.

When people are really overweight, the face will show it.

So, I would be shocked if Tyson Mildly Furious lost…

Posted February 14, 2014 1:08 pm 


TARK

Fat never works in your favor. Fury is fat because he loves to eat and can squash Abell like a roach whatever his condition is.

He wouldn’t take his shirt off at the weighin but he’ll have to for the fight. He’ll have flab flapping all over the place like Buster Douglas for his Holyfield fight. He’ll be in better shape for that quality of opponent but it shows what a ripoff this fight is for the fans.

The K Bros never showed up for sparring in that kind of condition. They respect the sport deeply, and Fury respects nothing and nobody.

Posted February 14, 2014 1:07 pm 


PEEJ

That weight never works in your favor especially if it is fat. it would be one thing if he was lifting weights and stuff but we all know that is not what is happening here. It is a disgrace to come in out of shape. Even Arreola realized he needed to be in better shape to compete at the top level.

Tyson will get off the canvas to win by 4th round KO. Chisora will pound out a UD. Hughie will also win by decision. Tyson coming in at 274 is absurd.

Fury is a disgrace, the guy just can’t be taken seriously. I thought he was going to KO Abell but now I’m willing to pick against him. Abell could possible knock him out not because he’s better on paper but Fury looks ill-prepared.

Wow. Wouldn’t surprise me if Fury got beat coming in that heavy. He is doing the same thing Chrisora did when he fought him. Coming in out of shape will equal problems.
