I'm not a big fan of Fury or Wilder but did pay attention to this fight.

What surprised me was that from the off, given his record, Wilder looked so unprepared, both physically and mentality for this fight.

Surely he wasn't expecting an easy win ?  Or was there something else going on with this unexpected TKO in the 7th round ?

Don't wanna sound like a conspiracy theorist BUT ! with Fury winning this one to even the score, just how much now would a 3rd match between these fella's be worth to both of them ?????   :lookaround   :;):

Boxing is a crooked sport so anything is possible but it looked to me like Wilder got hit hard in the second round and never really recovered. It looked like he was trying but did not seem to have the legs. The last fight Wilder had he was losing to a relatively average fighter then came up with the big right hand and knocked him out. Fury just seemed to knock the stuffing out of him as he hit him with some good shots and knocked him off his rhythm.

Wilder just isn't a very good boxer. He has a good knockout punch and got a bit lucky picking up his title but he can't really box. Fury is a very good boxer and truth be told be took a huge risk fighting Wilder first time out having been out of the game so long and having lost 10 stone. Another year passed and Fury had a few more fights and working regularly in the gym and was able to outclass Wilder. When you have a knockout punch like Wilder there is always a risk but the quality difference is stark. Can't see Joshua causing Fury much trouble either.

I don't understand how such a dominant knock out artist with that kind of pumching power gets totally outclassed by Fury. I guess that's boxing... Fury made wilder look like a scrub...

What I can think of is that Fury closed the space on Wilder which made Wilder's punches less powerful...

Any UFC fans here? Anyone going to watch the belter tomorrow? Khabib Vs Gaethje.

No fighter has had the answer to how to beat Khabib. Gaethje is a tough lad with great lasting powers but simply lacked the skill and flair to beat Khabib. Khabib has now retired 29-0, not because he has enough money but because he doesn't want to fight without his father at ringside. MacGregor fights for the money, Khabib was driven by a different desire. Respect.
