Whyte landed a hail-mary punch on the ropes in desperation that momentarily buzzed AJ. That was the extent of his success.

Whyte has a chance of beating AJ in the same way Fielding has a chance of beating Canelo.
I like Whyte but he isn't bringing much to trouble Joshua. Joshua was a novice when he fought Whyte the first time and made a silly mistake which gave whyte a chance to land a big shot. Joshua is now a seasoned world class fighter, he batters Whyte in a rematch

Well it is a 50/50 fight. Not 90/10 as the results suggest.
A chinny robotic predictable banger with no gas tank who appears to be terrified of anyone his own size vs a six nine switch hitting slickster with one of the greatest chins in heavyweight history who goes fifteen rounds for fun is not a 50:50 fight.

Maybe you are right, but only because of the difference in size. Whyte and AJ don't have quite that disparity.

If Takam and Povetkin in recent fights can give him trouble Im not sure that Whyte can't mate. He himself looks to have improved from what I can see. Having said that I still think he loses.

Hmmm. Interesting thoughts. I’m not seeing this as the one sided schooling many are talking about.
I think a lot of yers are being blinded by their Hearn hatred.

50/50 in every sense for me. Split the purse and get Wembley booked for the Summer mofo’s.
I would like a big piece of the action if Fury-AJ got made and the odds on offer were anything like 50/50. People seem to have forgotten just how good Fury was and are now struggling to believe he has returned to something near what he was. Stylistically Fury has to be AJ's worst nightmare.

Just speaking for myself Philly but Ive seen almost all his fights and Ive never seen him box better. And Wilder if not his best opponent ever was definitely his second best.

Oh yeah whyte is a world level operator he's no mug. But Joshua will beat him up and stop him, we know Joshua is a level above, it could be a good close fight for 4 or 5 rounds but Joshua's class will take over and he stops whyte again

I don't see anything AJ brings that Fury can't handle.

I could see that scenario, definite.

Joshua is chinny?

Too many Fury threads on here, it's hard to know where to post this. But Warren's response to Matt Dickinson's column, critical of how Fury has suddenly become everybody's darling...



"The list of fighters who have had their past demons is endless, including another British boxer who has a drug dealing conviction, who has turned his life around and is now rightly celebrated for this."



Can't help himself.

It's a brilliant point. There is no better example to use to illustrate the startling hypocrisy. Besides, he isn't criticising AJ. He's praising him.

I give Whyte infinitely more chance over AJ than Fielding vs Canelo

So do I mate. I was exaggerating.

That said, I will not subscribe to this narrative that Whyte-AJ is a competitive equation. The first fight was a pasting all except for 3 seconds, the second fight would be pasting from start to finish. I like Whyte but he's not on that level. I don't begrudge him opportunities to feed his family, I'm merely stating that if the fight comes off it's a one-sided drubbing.

Joshua wins by TKO 9.

There’s no doubt Fury will have much success with his jab and his ability to stay at long-range and not get hit cleanly, but if Joshua gets him in trouble, he’d be more patient and methodical then Wilder, will pick his punches better, mixing up solid combinations and ensure Fury stays hurt (rather than the sloppy mess Wilder came out with after the knockdown in 12th).

I think, after early Fury success frustrating Joshua, AJ will realise Fury’s punch power is akin to that of a washed-up John Ruiz (or a prime Chuck Wepner) and will be prepared to eat more jabs to get in his own big shots- a fairly wide 8th for Fury, which ends with him shouting “you’ve got fuck all, Femi, you big tart” will culminate in a hastened Joshua attack early in the 9th, who will keep Fury in trouble once he’s nailed. Two knockdowns later, it’s called off.

The cards will be even at 8, although consensus ringside scores will have Fury ahead by 2/3 points.

All the above will probably happen. Chalk it up!
