    The bumbling robot would eat 10,000 punches on the way to his TKO loss

    I don't know what fight you watched but I watched Fury spend a few rounds timing & tiring Wilder, then start walking forward pounding him.

    If anything he moved & feinted less in this fight
    According to John Fury, Tyson is an 18 wheeler semi trailer.

    Agreed, it's just as far as how they keep pummeling people with a huge volume of punches until they go down, and how huge they are, that made me think of the comparison. Couldn't really think of any others, usually the big guys throw one punch at a time.

    Fury was aggressive, he beat the man down, he didn't let him come forward and maybe most importantly, he'd ride the big right like a champ. This last fight, he didn't do that. He didn't impose himself.

    That’s easy to say that but wilder has an absolute cannon , you can’t be reckless. The reason why he was caught in the fourth was he just moved forward without the jab and wilder cracked him. It’s also probably why he smothered his own shots because of safety reasons

    Yeah I think he also just wanted to change up tactics again for this fight & smother/clinch/fight inside more. He knows Wilder doesn't have the real ring IQ to adjust well to new challenges so he's thrown something quite different at him each & every fight. This way he used the elements that worked last fight only after he'd already used plan A (win an exchange, then clinch & lean or try to outwork him in close, where the uppercuts came in). He's a clever boxer with a great corner.

    He’s the most versatile heavy weight I have ever seen. Can fight as a slick boxer and dance, or become a mauler and do it mid fight.

    most of the big guys I’ve seen like wlad or Lennox. Could only fight as a big man. Jab hold and their defense was just move back and out of reach. Fury has legit defense and doesn’t just use his size and reach. He slips punches so well

    Probably at 7 but everything else is a 10 so he's going to be hard to beat. Especially his chin which can take a 10. I bet he's favored three to one over anyone he fights

    maybe but maybe he just isn't that accurate, landing on the ear/back of the head isn't the common target. I know the target is moving but you deal with it two ways, hit at where it was, or het at where you guess it'll be when you're hand gets there, I guess the third option is just to throw without aiming at all but I don't think he was doing that. Also, i don't think he was hurt once in the second fight, he fought going forward and it's the lack of accuracy that dragged the fight on, same as it did last saturday.

    Ali was about the most accurate fighter we've seen in the 60's, yet, by 77 or so, he was complaining that his punch wouldn't go where he'd aim it, and showed the tv interviewer by putting his hand to the side of his head and complaining that it was a problem for him. maybe fury just isn't that accurate.

    it’s possible, I just think that Tyson knows he’s in there with someone who can drop him at any moment. I do think Tyson was a lot more sloppy in this fight

    Trying to figure out if you are an epic troll account or a salty fan. Punch hits guys temple- ko's him. Conclusion= innaccurate puncher.

    Do these seem inaccurate to you? Looks more like hitting him at will to me.

    I'm trying to figure out which fight you're talking, and either one would be shorter with better accuracy.

    As would any fight with 100% accuracy. But your definition of inaccurate is... inaccurate.

    did i say 100 percent accuracy? he missed a lot and was sloppy in the third fight particularly. Accuracy is huge for a fighter, and possibly the biggest reason older fighters stop knocking out guys. Ali didn't kayo anyone after Pierre Coopman and I think he only had one knockdown post-manila. His last good fight, the spinks rematch, you could see that he couldn't nail the guy, part of that was because a small guy like Leon was the prototype to give Ali problems, the other part was he just couldn't land clean shots anymore.

    edit, richard dunn was ali's last kayo win. He rarely hurt anyone in those years, he did manage to have Shavers wobbly at the end of that epic fight but that was the last time I think.

    I don't think Fury is experiencing huge physical deterioration and loss of motor function yet. If he struggles with accuracy I suspect it's always been an issue.

    I don't what to talk poorly of the man but his last two fights haven't been prime examples of crisp technical prowless or power. I'm pretty sure he's happy landing whereever.

    Your response starts from the logical fallacy that it's only Ali's accuracy which stopped hum KO ing anyone later- when we know that co-ordination & strength of neural impulse- determining force of contraction- is also significant in generating both strength & power.So, nah mate.
