Chisora is a roaster. He started with make me headliner or pay me more, looking for more coin, and now has backed himself in to a corner. Give him what he agreed, tell him when he’s fighting and if he pulls out we’ll not see him on sky again.
FWIW, I agree to an extent that it’s all about the heavyweights. Sadly, for him, he’s no longer one of the heavyweights that it is all about.

Chisora needs to realise what he is. British heavyweight gatekeeper/decent entertainment for the #ladz that are ¾ of a gram in and looking for a proper tear up.

His point though, is that those are people buying O2 tickets and PPV for the card. Unfortunately he's probably right. That's what Eddie has achieved by bringing boxing to the mainstream.

No catch weight which is superb.
If Canelo wins this he is on another level.

Canelo wins. He is another level.

Folk buying for that for that scrap no doubt but also to see class v class in josh v prograis. Chisora wants more money, that’s all.

Don’t see much other than a Canelo win against Kovalev. Think they’ve timed this well with Kov on the slide. Don’t see the weight being that big an advantage either. Hope Canelo stays at the weight (assuming he does win) and fights some of the more live champions (Bivol, Beterbiev, etc) and it’s not just a one and done belt grab. I have my doubts though sadly.

Absolutely this.

Clever people in boxing can put names on their record that look great, but were actually a borderline gimme fight. This is one of those scenarios.

Wallin done well to see the fight to the end , looked a clean left hand that opened the cut on furys eye. Fury looked sluggish.

Fury looked alright tbh Wallin was far better than Schwarz and Fury had a massive cut form the 3rd round that just opened up through the fight. 

When Fury wanted to up the pace in the last few rounds Wallin just done well to hang on and clinch often to break things up.

Just watched it, bizarre to say that fury won fairly comfortably, but also could have been stopped at any point from like the fifth onwards. Won almost every round (probably 9-3 I thought) but Wallin was live for most of it. Hurt him in the 12th too.

One thing is for certain, If it was free to air on ESPN, the yanks will have absolutely gobbled Fury up, and he will be a massive star from now on. Charismatic and entertaining in interviews pre-fight. Bit of pageantry with the entrance, Mexican theme on a holiday, loads of action, bit of skill, overcame adversity. Sort of shit they love. Worth a watch.

Fury never has an easy time or puts on a show with the more jobber end of the talent pool. Hes a big fight guy.


Yeah just like those diddies he fought before Wilder where he was terrible. Dunno why people still don’t realise that.

He has an awful tendency to fight to the level of whats in front of him.

Fury was lucky that wasn’t stopped but fair play to him for getting through it.

I thought wallin was dogged but ultimately not that great and a better fighter would’ve punished fury.

That was a horrible cut though.
