    Lennox Lewis should be ashamed of himself saying after the fight Fury deserved the win. Carl Frampton near pissed himself laughing at him saying that.
    How much was he paid !!

    Ngannou comes out of that looking excellent irrespective of the result.

    Usyk will be beyond confident having witnessed that.

    Farcical really, he was never gonna be allowed to lose. It'll be a different Fury in December.
    Dec 23rd. It's confirmed, the one we all want to see.
    Wonder who Ngganou will fight next.

    Hopefully Mike Tyson sees him right in Vegas and gets him a huge payday. As sid says he came out of the fight with huge credit.
    I agree that Fury was always going to win but he's lost huge respect after that.

    I'm a casual follower, so pinch-of-salt etc - but in terms of the degree to which such a fight is "staged" - if it is as fake as WWE then it's an incredibly bad PR call from anyone affiliated with promoting Fury and making him look good. Being the Heavyweight Champion and having the narrowest of victories (including a knock-down) makes you look really poor as a Boxer and only fuels the fire to those who perceive him as average (compared to the greats) when taking who he has fought in his defences into account, not to mention the fights he hasn't had.

    Whyte was shot. Chisora was shot. Joshua hasn't happened. Usyk (the one that has to happen) hasn't happened and Wilder has serious limitations when it comes to technique, dangerous as his right hand is.

    We need to see him fight someone mobile. We need that Usyk fight and honestly I'd even bloody take a Ruiz fight at this point out of sheer curiosity. He has always been matched up against the more static lad who comes in and doesn't counter well.

    Last night's highlights and his post-fight chat made him look really poor. Hence my feeling that Usyk will take huge encouragement when going up against someone who should have (in theory) been winning that bout against Ngannou comfortably via better Boxing technique/proficiency.

    Fury vs Usyk will be rescheduled for 2024,definitely not happening on Dec 23/2023.

    There is very little time for Fury to prepare for Usyk,less than 8 weeks especially with the pounding he took.
    Frank Warren said after the fight,he wouldn't be ready to face Usyk,even without the cut above and to the side of his eye.
