    Whyte is a club level fighter, a guy like Ruiz would handle him, Fury can beat AJ in a number of ways, AJ doesn't really have anything for him.

    Usyk is a pedigree gold medalist that got undisputed at CW in 15 fights, not as easy to headlock and lean on him like he did against Wilder, Usyk cut through AJ's reach advantage like butter when they fought. I think that's the #1 and #2

    Fury would still fight AJ if it was available as it does bring something... a huge purse. Even if AJ has no titles and not as big as once would have been.

    It is heading for Fury v Whyte next as a mandatory for the WBC and probably the reason Whyte has pulled out 'injured' v Wallin to secure his mandatory spot.

    Wilder lost a lot of reputation with those "I don't respect you" words. The anger and frustrations of Fury going and complaining to the referees after this scene "I've never cheated in my life" really struck me. It's one the top 2 matches in the world atm and the very thought of someone cheating sounds ridiculous. Sore loser stuff. The fight itself was without doubt the best I've seen in decades.

    I've watched a lot of interviews and footage on the reborn Fury these days. I disliked his personality previously, but seeing this scene changed everything in my perception, he prays for both sides and families:


    The guy is real, a boxer at heart and genuinely honest with everything in his life from depression/suicide to mantaining good relationship with his rivals outside the ring. Not the holier than thou attitude that Joshua and Lewis Hamilton display in public. I like the reborn Fury persona, the showmanship and humor displayed had been missing in the sport since Muhammad Ali.

    Wilder is compartmentalising his loss(es). All champions do it in some way. His pride is big, he can't believe he lost, but he knows in his heart it's not true. Loma did the same with complaining about the decision against Teofimo, Canelo still bitches about his loss to Floyd, AJ had the 'punch of the gods' excuse etc.

    Will always respect Wilder more than for example Whyte who dopes, cheats with gloves to beat fringe contenders, fakes injuries to dodge fights etc

    The Joe Frazier style of denial in some form. But I think this rivalry Fury vs. Wilder is over.

    Fury doesn't give shit about the money or the fame. His depression phase and comments post that are testament to that.
    RESULTS CAN BE MISLEADING. LOOK DEEPER

    'Canelo Alvarez battles Caleb Plant with all four world titles at super-middleweight on the line as the sport prepares to crown an undisputed champion at 168 pounds for the first time in history.

    There is immense skill on display in Las Vegas tonight, while there is also bad blood between the pair, after the Mexican swiped at the American as a brawl broke out at a press conference in the build-up.'

    Should be an interesting fight soon, Plant is a young fresh champ that's natural at the weight, but realistically probably dont have anything Canelo has not seen yet in his career. Canelo could be slowing down tho, at nearly 60 fights there's gonna be some wear and was marked up by a washed Billy Joe Saunders last fight.

    Shakes up the division a bit. To be honest, Lopez ego seemed to spiral a bit since the Loma fight, but with all the disaster of the Kambosos build-up, like you say writing was on the wall for disaster as he was quite blatantly looking past him.

    He could do with ditching his father as his trainer too, doesn't seem to the best influence.
