    What an absolute beast, the world needs more people like this man. He's truly been through the shit, severe clinical depression and bordering on suicide while addicted to drink and cocaine, ballooned up to 400+ lbs and nearly killed himself while driving that Ferrari at 200 mph. He truly hit rock bottom and everybody said he was done that he had no chance of making a comeback, he was too fat and had abused his body too much he was a mess etc. But he clawed his way back inch by inch when nobody said he had a chance. Tyson is the true peoples' champion. Comes back and boxes the face off Wilder aka the hardest puncher in the history of boxing and gets damn near decapitated twice and still rises up like the fucking Undertaker in the last round to take the draw (robbery). And to top it off he donates his entire £8 million purse to charity. What an absolute legend.

    Smart move because it was the money that almost ruined him a few years ago, cant go on crazy coke benders if you can't afford coke.

    I feel like this is going to turn into a Tyron Woodley thread for some reason

    Awesome Av. Is that from an actual Simpsons episode or just some art someone did after Vick called him the "Homer Simpson of MMA"?

    They're truly shameless and pathetic, Tyson will donate £8 million to charity because he feels an affinity with the downtrodden and less fortunate and knows their pain and wants to make a difference, Conor on the other hand may throw out a random 10k purely for PR reasons to the homeless hoping it will hit the tabloids and make him look good, the difference is night and day, and it will be reflected in how they are remembered 50 years from now.

    Who the f'''ck says wilder is the hardest puncher ever?? george foreman hit harder than him...ernie shavers hit harder than him...wilder is just a wild puncher...he has good power, but when you fight mediocre fighters your entire career, it makes you look better than you are...

    Fury said Wilder was the hardest puncher.

    Though I do agree about Foreman and Shavers

    Why are you trying to ruin my Fury appreciation thread? Can you not fucking save your displeasure for another fighter.

    Judging who is the hardest puncher is really an inexact science. All we can do is speculate. We can also take the word of common opponents who have fought several big punchers and can therefore give their personal opinions as to who hit harder between certain fighters, but at the end of the day, it’s nothing that can realistically be proven, at least not in any real-world sense, including having guys punch those arcade-style psi punch machines.

    Wilder definitely hits hard judging by all the guys he’s knocked out, and how he’s knocked them out. But whose to say that he hits any harder than Gerry Cooney did, or Bonecrusher Smith, or Razor Ruddock? What about David Tua or Tommy Morrison? And of course guys like Foreman and Shavers and Tyson. It’s really hard to say.

    To be fair, a huge chunk of Foreman’s high KO percentage was built on fights against absolute tomato cans in both his first and second careers. In career one he has notable KO’s over Frazier, Norton, and Lyle. And Norton was never known for his chin strength, and Frazier kept getting up after being absolutely pounded. And Lyle eventually fell more due to exhaustion than any Foreman punch.
    And in career two, Foreman blasted an inactive, fragile, fresh-out-of-rehab Gerry Cooney, a fake contender in Adilson Rodriguez, and then took the title from a chinny Michael Moorer. Is it possible that George Foreman gets too much credit for being a bone-breaking, concussive puncher?

    Having Jesus in your soul makes you do some strange things. Religion is very subjective but if, and I mean IF, God exists...Tyson Fury will be getting a high five off the fucker when he strolls through the pearly gates.

    Shame I won't see it from where I'll be.
