    He talks utter rubbish most of the time. He’s on a winde up imo. Didn’t he claim to give his purse for the first wilder fight to charity?

    Yeah, he was later asked about donating his purse to charity and he said that he did. The problem is nobody believes him. I'm sure he didn't keep what he pledged. Eddie mentioned it as well lol.

    I think his next fight or 2 we'll see how much he's improved from outside.

    I'm fascinated to find out whether the AJ we saw in December, or whenever that Saudi fight was, is a "new aj" or if he just made an extreme adjustment for one specific matchup

    We'll know when he fights Fury but that could be a while if him and Wilder do the third fight immediately. The AJ we saw in December was forced IMO to go back to the basics and lean much more on his amateur pedigree than in his previous form. It's always a possibility that a guy like Fury gets the better of him on the outside and rather than sticking with that approach and adjusting he reverts back to how he fought previously. Outboxing Ruiz is much easier than Fury obviously but even so it did reveal a few things that could really serve him well going forward in his career.

    AJ wont try and outbox fury as he doesn't fear his power we would be mainly back to his old ways vs Fury just with more jabbing and patient build up

    Outboxing Fury wouldn't be his primary strategy no but we'll see how he does out at range against him. We'll likely see AJ mix it up a bit with more of a boxer/puncher strategy.

    I'm watching this atm https://www.itv.com/hub/tyson-fury-the-gyspy-king-coming-soon/7a0148 but I'm not sure how easy it'd be for anyone outside the UK to see it. It's the first of 3. It seems more reality tv than boxing but it's still interesting.

    Fury has 3 sons called Prince, lol wtf. Prince Adonis Amaziah, Prince John James and Prince Tyson Fury II.
    His daughters didn't do that much better they're Venezuela and Valencia Amber.

    That was a dark day for Wlad and his fans. Fury made Wlad his bitch that day, to be honest. And I am a Wlad fan. And Fury is 250 pounds and a giant so yea.

    But lets not forget Wlad was 39 and Fury most probably on Nandrolone.

    I can somehow agree with that, but it still felt he won it more than Wlad. What he "did" was that game of doing juuust enough and that in perfection, very boring. One of the worst higher level fights I have seen in terms of entertainment.

    Edit: the "bitch" was due to Fury executing exaclty what he wanted to.

    Agreed. I don't think I've even re-watched that one. Awful fight.

    I have a hard time arguing that. Nothing inspired a young yacob and my friends like Hoop Dreams back in middle school haha.

    Legitimately one of the best pieces of film I've seen so far
