    Do you believe that bigger and longer HW’s will begin to make themselves known to the MMA and boxing world with the success that he’s had. Could you imagine someone with Fury’s proportions fighting in MMA? It’d be insane and I hope we get to see it one day.

    Semmy, Struve, HMC and Wes Sims were all taller than Fury. Volkov is 6'7 and came in right at the limit in the Gane fight so not much smaller than Fury.

    I’d pray they have more coordination and sense of length than he did.

    Fury is built different, literally. Wide hips mean he probably has less power than someone like Wilder, but he has tremendous balance and footwork, and is able to use those to his advantage in a point fighting boxing match. One of a kind fighter and for someone like myself who is a similar build and also struggles with mental health, I relate to the bloke a lot and everything he says rings true.

    It's different when you don't have to defend takedowns.

    I love Fury though. He's great for boxing.

    I don't think Fury's body type will start a new era in the HW division. There have been tall and rangy fighters before. Fury works hard as hell and is just that damn good. I don't think his skill has much to do with his body. His talent is based on his work ethic and love of the game.

    Wide hips are a god given gift for wrestling. (Punching) power is something you're born with otherwise chicken leg wilders would not have that tremendous power.

    Wide hips don't necessarily mean bad for punching power. There is all kinds of different shaped power punchers.
