Still don't know how the fucker got up from that. There's a shot of Wilder when Fury get's up, it's as though he's seen a ghost.  ;D

It was like something out of the wrestling, with Wilder celebrating then his face drops as Fury gets up from his grave.

To be fair, it won't be a tough fight for him.  It wasn't a tough fight for Ortiz either, until it was ;D

Not unless he's planning to sit on him ;D

He should be coming in as light as possible, because Wilder is a lanky fucker who could probably make cruiserweight, so he'll have 3 or 4 stone on him whatever happens.

The days of me staying up through the night are long gone!  Last one I stayed up for was Pacquaio v Mayweather and look how that went ;D

If it was like the old days where you got a big UK card and then over to the US with a decent undercard then maybe.

I know it is still almost two months away, but can anyone tell me why the fuck Joyce is 3/1 to beat Dubois and 15/2 to win via stoppage? Those are utterly insane odds, and it seems as if the bookies are aboard the hype train too. Don't get me wrong, Dubois has a bundle of talent but he is a pugilistic puppy compared to Joyce. Joyce moves like a glacier, true, but he is significantly bigger than Dubois, so it is interesting to see how Dynamite handles the superior physical strength of Joyce.

Also, Tyson Fury is an utter weapon and I hope he gets flattened. Alas, Wilder is also a weapon.  :-[

Its not just boxing.

I love opposing any Irish team, just because odds are so skewed due to patriotic Paddy betting  ;)

Similar to many other home nations too.

Even if you think they'll win, the odds just don't stack up, so you have to bet against them.

Says a lot more about Joyce than Dubois I think.  Joyce is slow like you say, but he's an arm puncher as well, no real power there.  I think Dubois beats him easily, just because any HW with a pulse beats him easily.

Perhaps, but we have to remember that Dubois has beaten nothing but tomato cans. I made a pretty penny backing him to KO Gorman because I knew Gorman wasn't up to much. Joyce doesn't necessarily need power. If he goes into the later rounds, who's to say that Dubois' gas tank won't empty? There are far too many unanswered questions to make him such a prohibitive favourite. He may well answer them comprehensively, but as of now, the jury remains out.

Haha so true. Wilder would probably think its jewellery and fury would be calling it a big dosser whilst complaining that its not the lineal lie detector...its a bum.

I enjoy the handbags and gasbags though...fake as it is its entertaining.

Joyce doesn't exactly have a CV full of all timers either.  I think they're both hype jobs to be fair, just my eyes are telling me that Joyce is the worst of the two.

So no face off at the weigh in for the Fury v Wilder fight! Isn't that what makes gives  Boxing that extra buzz..

My thoughts it will be Wilders camp who don't want it because they have ready reduced the face to face press conferences compared to last time.

That would be quite something ;D

I'm probably the most bullish in here thinking Fury could get a late KO but even then I accept that I'm going against the grain!

People also saying Fury will get a points decision. In Vegas. Against an American.

Part of me thinks that the money men in the US might be swinging behind Fury rather than Wilder.  For some reason no one seems arsed about Wilder over there.
