Stacked Weekend Of Boxing

LMAO nice called it seconds before, sorry knockout.

Good stoppage. That first knockdown did damage that rendered Wilder completely ineffective. 

IronHands -

The way Wilder's right ear is bleeding, I wonder if he has a rupture that's killing his equilibrium.

Certainly looked like it.

Wow, good for Fury, didn't see it coming but impressive showing 

Excuses from Wilder

Equilibrium or not, the feints and jabs was exposing the amateurish mistakes of Wilder. Then the added weight and making Wilder carry that killed him.

Fury had his number from the get go.

God damn Fury just mauled Wilder reminds of his fight with Steve Cunningham apart from Fury going down. I don’t think Deontay ever recovered from that first knockdown. Great performance from Fury. Just a systematic beat down.

He is the best heavyweight in the world

Boy was I wrong, great showing from Fury. He's gotta fight Joshua next.

Big question now is, will Wilder run this back in the summer?

Id much rather see the undisputed fight with AJ but, I guess that's Wilders call. Not sure it's the right move for Wilders career if he runs it back and loses convincingly again though.

What can Wilder really do differently other than get lucky with that right hand?

Barry kind of odd earlier tonight I was thinking about Wilder's gym, manager etc.

Not in a negative way but more of a I remember people with boxing experience and backgrounds always talked about "the guy is a sports reporter, knows nothing bout boxing"

Comments similar to these, but I looked at it now as though " may be true but he has made it to a higher level of boxing than any of these critics."

Now that is because one day Wilder walked into the gym. But the gym had to be in the game to have the chance to ever meet a Wilder. Earlier tonight I was thinking of it as an example of it pays off to take chances, if you like something do it, good things may happen.


All that said listening to Andre Ward talk about the lack of work in the corner while Deontay was hurt made me think about the lack of experience at this level. Or lack of background rather. Not talking bout Breland here at all. But more the lack of cornering and working with a hurt fighter.

I don't think it would have made a difference tonight. But interesting to see the circle.

That was some performance. Gotta be Fury and AJ next, in a stadium in the UK.  I just got out of a bar filled with Brits, I am now covered more in beer that I was able to drink.  Gotta clean up before I go to my home town stadium to see Queen and Adam Lambert in a few hours. Not sure I'll be in the condition to go to work tomorrow...

Wilder seemed totally unprepared for Fury's aggression.

Sometimes a coach can take you so far, these guys feel loyal to their coaches and don’t want to drop them. But Wilder hasn’t improved at all, he looked terrible from the feints and pressure. He’s too old to learn the basics, basically just cash out now.

I thought the same thing while watching the fight and it looked to me that although they have fought,Wilder was surprised by how strong Fury was on the inside. Maybe the extra weight or maybe I was just imagine it. Now I picked Fury to win but I absolutely did not expect him to win by walking Wilder,one of the and you could argue the hardest punchers to ever exist,the fuck down.

I am sure there are better examples, but is this a little bit like the firs time someone backed up Tyson ? I know Tyson was slipping technically especially defensive by the point that Riddick got to him, but seemed like once the aura was gone and people stopped "fighting scared " there was a better shot at beating him.

Remember that and also remember Holyfield's (in the first fight?) corner telling him in between rounds, "you be the bully".


 

I think Haymon knew what he had in wilder. Barely got a way with a draw in the first fight. He’s gonna cash him in with this rematch. His defense is beginner level. He has no idea how to tuck his elbows in and catch shots when pressured, much less counter back. The extra weight he put on took away the other advantage he usually has, and that’s being in better shape. Kudos to him for making it a far as he has with his limited skill set. I think him and AJ would still be a good fight. Both have flaws.
