I was extremely close at putting in a bet with a Fury win as a hedge, and a draw as the main bet at 27-1 odds. My reasoning was that Fury would be cheated somewhat and they would make it a draw, sort of like Lewis-Holyfield 1. I have to start trusting myself. (Same with Trump and Brexit, should have put some money on it.) I think it was a pretty fair decision all in all though.
I hate to brag, but I was right on pretty much everything going into this fight. I knew Fury`s flab would be a problem in latter rounds. Had he been fit enough, he would have won it. Wilder has excellent stamina.
Johnny, sorry but you are way off base brother. Had Fury weighed less it is obvious he would have been knocked the fuck out. He was in very great shape actually and looked super sharp.
Weight is power. Size matters.
Forget about the 2 knockdowns. Think about all the other punches he was able to shrug off!!!!
If he fights Joshua next he might trim down more, but he was smart by being the weight he was last night.
I hear your (fat acceptance) argument, but I think he would do better with less flab in the latter rounds. I think he got hit more towards the end due to his lack of stamina. I hope he improves his fitness before a rematch takes place.
You should watch American Football sometimes and take a look at offense and defensive linemen. There are dudes on teams with 4 times the stamina of both fighters and twice the flab. Don't let the fat fool you. Fat does not suck up excessive amounts of oxygen like muscles do. Also sometimes skin is too loose, especially for full contact athletes that have to make weight and still do fast cuts. Nowadays fewer guys do this, but some dudes are still oldskool.
