    Way late, but chiming in to say I can maybe count on one hand the number of early 90’s to now modern HW’s that are better than Fury. What an absolute monster talent.

    Yep, I have no doubt AJ is a legit good dude and a talented fighter. Top of the HW division just requires a lot and gives little margin for error.

    In the super heavyweight era everyone is flawed in some way and sheer size can cover up flaws for someone like Fury. You can’t cover up a shaky chin at the heavyweight level.

    I can’t really think of any that could beat him. Klitschko is the only one that comes to mind and we know how that turns out. He destroys Tyson and Lewis

    I still think he'd be better off if he were 10-15 lbs leaner. He's looked blocky and slow to me lately, especially against Usyk,

    the other guy is an mma guy, right? It will be boxing and Fury will kill him if he wants.

    Yeah, they're talking about using MMA gloves in a boxing format.

    Yea I don't care how good at boxing I am I want no part of Ngannou in MMA gloves.

    Dude is the hardest recorded puncher in the world.

    Fury will kill him. Gloves no gloves. Watching this Belator shit on showtime right now and don’t see how this gloves make a difference.

    Oh I'd definitely bet on Fury - but if Ngannou tags him he's going to sleep.

    I've fought/trained with both and the difference is enormous.

    Also if leg kicks are allowed that would be disastrous for Fury.

    I'm assuming they're just doing straight up boxing with different gloves though.

    Fury has great chin. I doubt the other guy gets a good clean shot on him. For a man his size Fury has great movement.

    boxers are usually the bigger name and they know they will get killed doing the mma stuff so you’ll never see it.

    .

    Sadly this is accurate.

    But Ngannou is a big name - heavyweight champ and like 3.8 million followers (Fury is at 5.5).

    Regardless I'm definitely watching.

    huh? “YouTubers? The biggest names in mma don’t approach the biggest names in boxing. I’ve never heard of the other guy. Is he a YouTuber? There is a reason why it’s mma guys who are baiting the boxing guys. Canelo isn’t begging anyone to fight.

    I'd agree. Wilder fought Fury tough. Fury is just a ridiculous human being.
