Fury and Wilder each have a massive flaw. One can't punch the other can't box.
I'm not sure Fury can do the twelve without getting heavily tagged by Wilder. I think the two most likely outcomes are Fury gets KOd and Fury gets robbed on the cards again.
I'd like to see Fury win because Wilder is definitely the bigger twat of the two.
Fury can punch but doesn't set his feet to. He also had Wilder buzzed in the last round after he got up so he might go for it this time.
I wish Bob Carolgees had put his hand up MY arse instead of Spits.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

No one says he has "big power" but you said "he can't punch". He can punch. He can hurt & stop people. But his style is set up for evading punches then returning flurries.

Mayweather could also punch but at Welter chose to go safety first.
Bloody hell, Taans, not everything is a knock down argument.
Fury is underpowered for a heavyweight, especially a big heavyweight. Could he knock Wilder out? Probably. Would that tactic give him the best chance to beat Wilder? Doubtful.

All I was saying is that a fighter with good power could have a crack at Wilder early. I think that should've been Ortiz's strategy. Forget about out boxing Wilder and just try to take his head off for the first 4/5 rounds.

Fury and Mayweather both play the odds. It's why, more often than not, they bore the pants off people.
But he's not underpowered. He has decent power. But he doesn't fight in a style designed for power.

But you're right about his and Mayweather's style not being great to watch

It's true his style isn't conducive to knocking fighters out, but beyond that it just doesn't seem to be in his arsenal.
We've seen him fighting poor opposition. Guys who present no real danger, where he could easily set his feet and make a point, but he just doesn't.
Chisora is another underpowered heavyweight, but even he is a bigger puncher than Fury.
Maybe it has to do with size? Fury certainly isn't as slow and methodical as a Valuev, but he seems just as incapable of producing fast, dynamic, and effective power punches.
I don't know where you'd rank him in terms of KO power in the top 10 HWs, but for me he's at the bottom. That's underpowered in my book.

This fight is seriously not been able to catch the publics imagination hence the rather desperate media interviews of late.
There's only 1 promoter able to sell.

I'm off to Vegas for the night next Tuesday.

I've got the address of the gym Fury is training at & I'm going to bowl up there & harass the fucker :D

Hope I get to meet him.

Then I'm off for a curry as there's a couple of decent Indians there.

That's my Vegas experience. Hassle a man training for the biggest fight of his life then eat Indian food :D
