    Is Tyson Fury a solid heavy weight skill wise? I have been reading a few things about him calling out Cain and others so is he an up and comer or what? I have never followed his career and I don't recognize any of the guy's names he has fought.

    I've always liked Sprott, fought the best, in his twilight, yet still a live opponent.

    Agreed. Recent win over Gerber was decent as well as winning prizefighter... Fury would work Helenius imo

    Helenius has fought stiffer competition and looked both better and worse for it. He's beat three former beltholders (Liakovich, Peter and Brewster) and three fringe contenders (Chisora, Bidenko and Levin). Fury looked better against Chisora but who else has he beat? He has more total fights but substantially weaker names on his resume--to me that says that Helenius' team is more confident in his ability than Fury's team is confident in their man.

    I think Helenius takes Fury and almost any other HW out there except Haye, the Klits and maybe Povetkin.

    Fury is more athletic. I know that much. I think Fury would pull it out.

    I like Helenius but as things stand Fury takes a wide decision or late stoppage.

    Helenius waits for the perfect punch to appear. If it does then he often lands it and causes damage... but he waits too much. Fury has a pretty constant work rate and as the Chisora bout shows, when that happens Helenius freezes up. The fight would consist of Fury getting to the inside and taking Helenius apart there while the Nordic Nightmare waits vainly for a chance to throw punches.

    Helenius lost the Chisora match, i was there live watching it and was really baffled when the announcer said Helenius won.
    Him looking bad is forgivable since his right shoulder was fucked up but in next the match he looked like shite after the surgery.

    Ok ok long lay off and ring rust, call it what you want but he was much more closer to getting knocked out than his opponent.

    Del-Boy was robbed, no doubt.

    rubbish that mate. Helenius had a lot of hype going for him after beating those 3 but they were shot mate, Fury has beaten Chisora (didn't rob him like Helenius), Johnson, Firtha, Pajic. 4 decent guys really, also one of the only guys betting on Chisora to beat Helenius was Fury. Why? because he was working Helenius over in sparring http://www.boxinginsider.com/column...s-johnny-walker-scoop-heleniusklitschko-fury/

    honestly lads, helenius has went off the map a bit lately. obviously with you lot watching mma more you might have missed it but the top prospects in boxing now are Fury, Price, Wilder and Pulev. Helenius needs to give chisora a rematch

    Helenius was giving Chisora all sorts of trouble until the second round (if i recall right) when Helenius' arm broke. I believe if it wouldn't of happened, Chisora would've been in big, big trouble. I think Chisora deserved the nod against Helenius this time though. Helenius needs to fight Chisora again to redeem himself.
