    pretty sure Povetkin was approached before he opted to fight Hughie but regardless yes there are other top guys Tyson should be fighting

    even if he isnt fighting a top fighter, at least fight someone people have heard of

    i imagine Shannon Briggs probably isnt doing too much

    Tyson Fury either fights elite guys, or bums.

    His mental constitution determines him to be extremely vulnerable for an upset loss against a live dog that he doesn't take seriously.

    The guy only trains for the big fights, when he feels motivated, otherwise he usually shows up fat and disinterested, showing a lack of discipline. Whoever is managing him, probably realizes this, and thus keeps him away from anybody that's not either a recognized top 3, or a tomato can.

    As lineal champion, Tyson Fury is showing that he is a world champion in the purest sense of the word. He conquered Tom Schwarz of Germany, now Otto Wallin of Sweden is the target. After this fight, WHO NECKS!

    Fury is the best heavyweight in the world, right?..

    His record is getting worse.

    I don't even get how this is helping Fury. What does this do for him? This doesn't prepare you to fight Wilder. It's a 6 foot 5 south paw bum. WHo the fuck are these other options?

    Kyotaro Fujimoto or Taishan Dong if he really wants to go on a world tour of bums.

    Otto-matic by Ruiz level upset.

    PS. In between high profile fights, particularly highly anticipated rematches (Wilder vs Fury II), expect low risk fillers.

    I dont get it. A world champ who fights low level journeyman.

    But I just looked up HW rankings. Man has HW gone to shit in the last years. Even zombie Adamek is still in the top20.

    Arum keeps Aruming.

    Fury picks up 7 figure paydays with no fucks given.

    Not sure how anyone else makes any money from this shite.

    Fury is a known PED abuser with a fake redemption story. It's time to stop getting outraged that he doesn't show the guts of a champion. He's not one.

    Thats nonsense. In his most demanding fights he performed very good with superior mental strenght. Look how he came back after Wilder knockdown and beat him across the ring. Fury is a true champ and imo the best HW at the moment. Just his matchmaking is complete dogshit.
