Tyson Fury 262 lbs
Oleksandr Usyk 233.5 lbs

Fury looks lighter than he's done in a long while.

Usyk surprised me when he beat Joshua.

Old father time likely robbing us of a true tear up between the two.

Would have favoured Fury strongly but he seems a bit distant, reserved
about it all.

Probably the most pirated event of the weekend...

When you have such evenly matches boxers, the draw price is the way to go.

I agree with SH. Draw is the value bet.

Would suit both camps. More hype, a rematch and loads of money for all concerned.

..... including officials.

That was the shout in the past but now they might
want 3 fights and need to get to 1-1, I'm really
unimpressed by fury at the weigh in, apart from
looking so much lighter he just doesn't look ready
to bully Usyk.

But, we shall see.

Yeah of course it's possible and as aftertiming goes
I got 33/1 hearns Leonard on the same guess.

I suppose the 14/1 on offer is a reflection
that folk have slightly higher expectation of
it happening.

Proper fighters never had draws...

Fury a stone lighter than v Ngannou when he looked very unfit. Usyk almost a stone heavier than he's ever been. How will that affect him if it goes the distance?
If Fury is well prepared then he should win but might be a boring fight.

that's not true, last 5 heavyweight fights he's been between 217 to 221, now he's 223 v Fury, you'd have to go back 6 fights when he was cruiserweight where he was below 200 pounds.

Report lurka May 18, 2024 2:18 AM BST
I can see it being a bit fixy. A draw would preserve both their unbeaten records. A win would pave the way for a trilogy which would be even more money. Reports that Fury will make $100m on this. Who else are they going to fight afterwards who would make that kind of money? A nice trilogy of undisputed fights would make them the same as 10 fights and they are both past it really. The whole sport is corrupt as.
Report scandanavian_haven May 18, 2024 5:13 AM BST
He's not 233.5 pounds, he's 223lbs, he's only 2 pounds heavier than the previous fight

His weight was wrongly announced at the weigh in by Buffer who misheard.

So he's only 2 lbs heavier than the previous fight, no where near a stone heavier.

If boxing wasn't so obviously fixed Fury would be a lot shorter odds.

I'm looking forward to this fight. Given Usky has beaten Joshua twice I have backed Usky. In the future it might turn out he is considered one of the greats. For some reason I have always liked Fury since watching the ITV fly-on-the-wall documentary a few years ago, if he is as good as he was, he has 'big man advantage' and we know he can take a punch, but a fair chance will he will get cut... If Fury does win then hopefully, Joshua vs Fury is on.

The 233lb was an error from a mis read at weigh in.

He was able to get down to under 200lb when a cruiser.

Seems around 222 is his max.

Fury was good, is the better boxer imo. Didn't do enough in the first half. Needs to attack more and hit the body, wear him down more.
Still think it's fixed for 3 to milk the Saudis tho.

Disagree = Uzyk is technically the better boxer, showed that tonight given Fury had all the advantages and Uzyk boxed smart and picked Fury apart from 6

Usyk was always going to finish stronger if it went 12. Look at the Joshua fight. Fury fought a poor fight tactically. Not aggressive enough and gave up the early rounds too cheap.

If Fury really tried, like a champion defending his titles, then Usyk would be being treated for leather poisoning this morning.

The fact is there is so much money involved for so many people nothing can be left to chance.

Can you imagine the fight if the loser go no purse and no rematch?
Report PorcupineorPineapple May 19, 2024 11:39 AM BST
Not a huge boxing fan but from that I couldn't see any room for better from Fury. Looked big, slow and a bit unfit to me. Usyk far quicker and much more technical ability to my eyes.
Report Storm Alert May 19, 2024 1:19 PM BST
I did enjoy the fight. Uzyk finished really strongly and physically coped well with Fury leaning into him last few rounds, so he must have had plenty left as Fury is a big guy. Fury incorrectly though he had Uzyk and was showboating in round eight which makes it quite clear who the more intelligent boxer is. I would expect Uzyk to win a rematch if both boxers turn with same level of fitness. It was nice to see the respect they showed each other.
Report ALIEN SEX FIEND May 19, 2024 7:14 PM BST
Fury was the best a round awhile ago, however a lot of people fell for the overall poor quality of the class.  Fury lucky years ago to beat McDermott in their first fight.  Beats an over the hill Klitchko. Albeit AJ beat him when he was even older. Deontay Wilder has proved to be overrated. He was able to coast against Chisora, Ngannou beat him and most sane people know it. He has probably deteriorated without people realsing it.
