Fuck me that's alot of mass he's lost!! I'm getting shades of RJJ dropping from HW to Light HW here.

Fury's said some good bits on this:

"So I think they are going to try to lose weight and try to move a lot. But you can’t do that in one camp, that takes a lifetime practice. We saw Tony Bellew try to do it against [Oleksandr] Usyk, tried copying my style but after eight rounds his legs went. It works, it’s effective, I’ve been successful 29 times in a row with it. You can’t learn it overnight.

"What tends to happen with new things in new camps is when someone practises something in the gym for eight, 10, 12 weeks, and then they go in a fight and try to do it, as soon as they get clipped or get tired, they revert straight back to what they once knew. I’ve soon it many, many times. As soon as he holds his feet and starts to fight back, he loses in my opinion.

"But if he can get on the jab and box and move, which I’ve never ever seen him do, amateur or pro, for 12 rounds which for a heavyweight is a very hard thing to do, at some point he’s going to have to stand and fight. And if he keeps running away from Ruiz with the jab, he’s not got the footwork to do that. Work on what you’re good at, that’s what you’re good at. Tighten your defence up and go forward and smash them."

For a jacked up coke fiend Fury really does seem to understand the game well. He really does across as a knowledgeable guy and I think he might be right here.

Joshua has said himself that if you're training twice a day, and training once for strength and conditioning and once for boxing, you're a part time boxing trainer. More boxing, less weights. It's a radical departure for him but it feels like the right direction to move in. We'll see.

So the next time he fights a fat mexican dude, the fat mexican can eat him instead of knocking him the fuck out?

We can all look different when we drop our shoulders and try not to look big.

If he lifted his shoulders, flared his lats and flexed, he would be big again in 3 seconds - Amazing eh.

This is a 2016 shot of him, obviously this is after a full camp and fight but it doesn't look that different to me... could just be camera angle in that other shot and him stood with relaxed shoulders. I've kinda felt he's lost some of that chiseled out of granite look he had in his early fights recently anyway.

I think he KOs Ruiz in the rematch, he's still so young he'll be a champ again I am certain of it, Wladimir had some very big weaknesses and managed to more or less completely nullify them I feel AJ atleast on paper has a lesser version of the same if he's half as mentally strong as Wlad he should be able to aswell.

Fuck off :lol:

He’s CLEARLY lost tons of muscle. The idea it’s just because he’s raised his arms over his head is preposterous.

What’s the reason his legs are much skinnier then?

He's not on gear. His roid gut was getting out of hand.

Hard to compare pictures.

Do a session of weights and get sweated up and you can look very different to standing around dry and relaxed.

Scales don't lie though. It would be interested to see what they have to say.
