That was some fight.

Wilder looked good early but gassed himself throwing so much so early, got tired reverted to type and stopped the body work.

Fury didn't look as good as previously I thought but weathered the storm.

Just watched it and the bookies had it about right. Brilliant fight to watch.

How did Wilder amass a 42-0 record. Gassed very early. And seemed very one dimensional and static. Not sure he ever really recovered from the early knock down.

Tyson Fury looked like he just stepped off a building site but his cardio was awesome in comparison, spring in his step going back to his corner at the end of the rounds. He is such a naturally big build guy that he has very heavy hands it seems. 

The ref looked like he was struggling to control the fight at times and Fury started to grapple with Wilder a lot. That was when it turned against him and it wore Wilder down.

edit: looking at Wilder's record explains a lot. Nearly all of his fights were incredibly short, not one went the distance (apart from the draw). edit again I see another so only two.

One thing about that fight that impressed me was a slo-mo of one of Wilders heavy punches to Fury's coupon and you could see the shock wave ripple down the whole length of Fury's body in his fat layer. 😀

Also looks like a dodgy ref, long counts when Fury went down.

 Fury should have been counted out going by the time he went down. Of course he could have just adjusted to the ref's dodgy time keeping. 

I was hoping for dodgy ref decision the other way considering it was in Las Vegas.

Tonights UFC should be a good, like really deep card and also favourable match-ups. First card i'm getting up to watch live in a long time.

Probably guranteed to be shit now.

I'm too old i slept through my alarm haha

This will be my first and last ever post on this thread as I dont like boxing. But have just watched a fight involving a young British guy Micky Burke and a 37 yr old Croatian. It was hilarious.  It was like the older guy had been plucked out the audience 🤣Would not have been out of place in a Jack Black movie.
