I thought Fury had Wilder buzzed a couple times in their fight.
Maybe, I've not watched it in a while. Only reason I say that was because Fury tried really hard to end the fight against a dead tired Wallin since he was cut and bleeding and all.

I am sure Fury did buzz Wilder a couple of times, he also put it on him for a concentrated period more than once. Wilder looked uncomfortable, but never like he might get stopped.

Fury is not a puncher, but he is huge and Wilder has been hurt before. Fury could get a stoppage, it's just the most unlikely of results. Another draw is more probable.

I expect Wilder to stop him. He will be a bit heavier, a bit less nervous, and he will be confident that Fury can’t take his punch (that count in the 12th was disputable). Fury has his head in showbusiness, lost too much weight, and he doesn’t have the same heroic storyline to motivate him. Fury had his best fight with Wilder, Wilder has more to give and has more hunger, has more ambition. Fury just wants a couple of fights, his head is already half way out of the game.

Fury says if he stopped training he wouldn't last a week before he killed himself. Or words to that effect. So his motivation is almost survival based. So that is not to be underestimated.

But I do agree with your selection, Wilder by stoppage.

I don't remember Fury landing a single meaningful punch.

He did, however, win the fight, IMO.
Wilder's ego overtook him, and he basically did fuck-all for 11 rounds.
At least Fury landed a bunch of jabs.
Wilder actually landed almost as many jabs they were just ignored by commentary.

But I agree Wilder wound himself up, went in the ring angry and tense and put in a shitty caveman effort. Still almost killed Fury mind.

He will do the job this time, Fury won't get lucky again.

I was well wrong on that one. Fury fooled me completely. As soon as the bell went he was on, implementing his game plan to perfection.

Fury Fooled everyone completely. (Except the bookies, I guess.)

He was a completely different fighter tonight. Absolutely amazing.

And it's not like Wilder fought badly, either. Wilder was jabbing reasonably well, and showed excellent defensive footwork for a few rounds, until he got caught. Fury was simply on another level.
Beyond impressive.

From whom? Fury was the guy that outboxed Olympic gold medalist Wladimir Klitschko.
True. I just mean the fight itself wasn't very technical and poor from that pov. No counter-punching, extremely poor technique from Wilder, etc.
Mind you I just rewatched 2 Rigo and 2 Cesar La Cruz fights :D

Entertaining fight even though the skill level was very low.
Fury's skill was shockingly good.

And Wilder looked fantastic for about 2 rounds, especially his defensive footwork, until Fury landed that first big blow, & evidently ruptured Wilder's eardrum. After that, Wilder basically fell apart. He became more stationary, stopped jabbing, and his punch accuracy disappeared.
