Passat estate? It’s brilliant! 230k miles now. Cost me 2k does 48 mpg can easily cope with the Alness Nover tracks and it takes a 11” switch rod made up. Punches well above its weigh. Will Usyk? I can see him wizzing around the ring pinging off punches and moving fast for 6 rounds with Fury coming on in the second half leaning on, using his weight and finishing the job off by TKO in the 10th
But. I really don’t know much about boxing aside from knowing I don’t enjoy getting punched in the face and running away from the big boys is the sane thing to do.

Well its looking increasingly more likely that Tyson will find a reason not to fight Usyk.

Maybe we will get Fury v Chisora 4 instead or maybe he fancies a go at Jake Paul?
Not a serious boxing watcher but Usyk would appear a 'proper' fighter and way ahead of Fury's level? No way would Fury want to get beaten by him, there's too many rank ordinary boxers he can keep pummelling. I think he's vastly over rated and will quite likely end up fighting these so called Youtubers. It's all about entertainment, boxing ability is nowhere near as important as the contrived fights we currently see.

You indertand there are weight divisons in boxing for a reason, who has usyk beaten at heavy weight bit a mentally weak Joshua, have a look at their heavyweight resumes before posting would you man.

"No way would Fury want to get beaten by him, there's too many rank ordinary boxers he can keep pummelling"
Where do get these statements from? 3 fights with wilder, 1 with mandatory ranked whyte and a stay busy fight against a rough and formidable Chisora, a fighter that is capable of causing 90 percent of the division trouble when he turns up mentally and physically fit.

. 'I think he's vastly over rated and will quite likely end up fighting these so called Youtubers. It's all about entertainment, boxing ability is nowhere near as important as the contrived fights we currently see."
"He's vastly over rated "
he just happens to have won every belt in the division , beat 2 of the most dangerous ko artists in recent history to win those championship fights .

ive no idea where your going with your post to be honest absolutely no factual evidence to a single statement

Just my opinions roteone from watching and enjoying sport. I'm not wanting to go anywhere with my post, just giving my opinion, not fact, not statement, no evidence. I bow to your more professional knowledge my friend. One thing for sure, I wouldn't want Mr.Fury, or anybody else, to punch me!

Well done Usyk for accepting the terms on offer, he is certainly not afraid to take on the big boys !

I have Fury as clear favourite due to physical advantages but then again I thought AJ would have beaten Usyk.

Certainly no lack of courage and heart with Usyk.

I wish I could like Fury, at the end of the day he's British and I cant ever remember supporting a foreign boxer against a British one until now if the Usyk fight happens.

There was a point immediately after Wilder 1 where I though he had learned his lesson and there might be a decent man in there but it didnt talk long for the real Tyson to show his face again. He so much wanted to be loved by the UK boxing public after his Klitschko victory and yet it never happened. I guess the lack of quality opponents up to his world title fight and his antics during many of the build ups and during the Klitschko fight just didnt appeal to your average British fight fans. The Klitschko fight was about the worst title fight Ive ever watched and the rest is history, failed drug tests, crash weight gains, and depression.

So here we are again, a fight that needs to be made for the benefit of world boxing and again we have Fury publicly calling all the shots. The man who has often publicly said he would fight for free is now trying to screw the last few quid out of a man who deserves to be treat better. If this fight does get made it will be for one reason only and that is because Usyk is a true fighter who just wants to fight and will accept these ridiculous terms Fury is insisting on. I thought 50/50 was fair, then I thought Usyks suggestion of 60/40 to the winner was more than fair especially if Tyson is so confident but no Tyson has to call the shots and his greed means he needs to wring very last penny out of the fight for himself, no honour in that at all.

I can see a scenario where Usyk could win and with no rematch clause that would really make my day.

Bottling it?
Do you really believe that Fury is a coward?
Are you privy to all the intricacies of the negotiations?
Steve Bunce has a completely different take on it on Twitter.
Like him, I am disgusted that the fight is not going ahead.

But if it ever does take place, my money is on the big Travelling Mancunian.
