Wilder has stated that after he gave Fury a concussion in their last fight these tune-ups are aimed at getting Fury "to the Prom with all his marble's intact" :lol: ....... there could be an element of truth in that ..

I get that this place is a forum for geeks of the noble arts but how many have actually seen him fight?
Don't think I have ever seen him. If I have then I probably wasn't paying attention.

The only reason Fury can have chosen him though is because he is an easy nights work. He is not really ranked, has no profile, brings no money, has fought no one, and went the distance with the few recognisable gatekeepers/journeymen he has faced.

Fury's comeback opponents, other than Wilder, are very similar to the guys Haye fought before Bellew. Decent records achieved in boxing backwaters.

Just watched some fights on YouTube. Couldn't get the most recent fights, but he looks very average.

Southpaw, likes to fight at mid range, mainly uses the jab and straight left to head and body. Bit clumsy when he tries to be the aggressor, reaches in, uses his head quite a bit.

No exceptional physical or technical attributes I can see. No similarities to Wilder either. In fact he is almost a mirror image of Schwartz.

As bad as it sounds I would still say they are significantly better than the guys Haye fought. Haye opponents were truly shocking, not even gatekeepers, at least Wallin has actually beat some known gatekeepers, haye's opponents were levels below that

Agreed. They are a much better level, as they should be Tyson has proven he is at least as good as the best guy out there.

I just meant they had built good records being a big fish in a small pond. Like the guy Haye fought from Switzerland. Schwartz and Wallin would wipe the floor with that guy.

That wasn't what I was getting at. It is his hypocritical behavior I was highlighting.
Aye, that's fair enough...he is one of the most biased posters on the board.
One trick pony he is. Sad case.
Good to see you lot get so much pleasure in slagging me off. I come here to genuinely contribute to debates. I can't imagine how small a person you have to be to spend your time slagging off other posters but whatever floats your boat.

'I come here to genuinely contribute to debates'

Lol. The thing is you don't even realise that despite calling me a AJ Fanboy at every opportunity, your continual annoyance at this just proves you are a TF fanboy of even greater proportions.....

Sadder still when all you can offer is 'oh but you are worse than me.'

One trick pony and you know it.

If you look at my posts, the vast majority of the time I simply debate too... you've got an incredibly thin skin if you think me saying you're biased is me spending my time "slagging off other posters". :lol:

I've always been civil with you and tried to reason with you when you first started posting, but yes you're utterly biased on the topic of Fury and AJ. Maybe you're not at all about football, or politics, or music...I don't know. I've got nothing against you, but people obsessed with defending any fighter regardless are impossible to have objective discussions with.

We have posters on here with a ridiculous Fury bias and we have some with an AJ bias...others with a Lomachenko bias or some other boxer. You just happen to be one of the AJ ones.

Wish Fury all the best but i won't be watching this one live, the German massacre left a sour taste in my mouth at 6am. Roll on Fury vs Wilder/Ortiz/Ruiz

I'm not saying you're the worse offender as @alternative hypothesis and @Grant are much worse at using every post of mine as a opportunity to slag me off but I still think it's unnecessary.

It appears you are not actually allowed to voice any opinions here without being pilloried for them. I don't think supporting AJ or not be pro Fury are unreasonable opinions and I think it is natural to defend you opinion. I would argue I'm not obsessed I just have a preference and I wouldn't defend AJ regardless, I have never suggested he is perfect or hasn't made mistakes, all I have done is give my opinion. I very much doubt anyone who has a genuine interest in the sport doesn't have any preferences and I don't think voicing them should be a reason for constant ridicule.

You should have thought better of putting Fighting the Fury loving Scum under your name before trying to falsely make claim you are any way objective. :patsch

this was always going to be shit. will be pissed off if wilder isnt next though. why would it be if they are both making bank fighting nobodys though.

i would not be suprised one bit if wilder loses to ortiz though.
