Think fury will not be stupid and stick to his boxing behind his ram rod jab. Boxed his lugs off last time. Same again for me. Wilder will always be dangerous with that right hand sledgehammer.
I don't think they plan is to be a gun slinger here, I think its just that his boxing/movement skills are easily good enough, and he's just adding some pop to his shots.

I think Wilder will push to try to catch Fury early on. He knows he can hurt him.
And Wilder knows Fury can take his best shot, get up, and still win the round.

Theres no chance wilder will be worried about fury taking that shot. If that happened any earlier than the 12th it would have been game over.

Been years since I paid for a ppv night. in fact the last one iirc was Lewis v Bruno, possibly, it was years back now, I forgotten for certain

I’ll never pay again
There are fights I would pay to watch but will I fuck encourage them by buying Eddie Hearns latest shit fest and justifying it by splitting the cost with a few of my mates. I grew up watching genuine wars between talented or hard fighters. I recall watching Benn v Eubank in Chambers during a Saturday night on the lash. On ITV.

One point off for a knockdown, so that's 10-9 to Wilder. Did Fury give Wilder such a battering when he woke up that the judges awarded him 2 points?

9-9 rounds should be normal imo - but they almost never ever happen - a knockdown is 99.99% TWO points (10-8), not 1. If the round was fairly even, or they also won the round, then its fine of course - but the threshold to get a 9-9 result if you'd taken a knockdown is crazy-high.

One punch shouldn't win a round if you've been soundly beaten for the other 2:40.
Nevertheless, you KNOW if you "had the better" of the round or not. And in both knock-down rounds, Fury still had the better of the rounds.

i.e. the power knocked him down, but didn't stop him. Which is my point, really.

£24.95.
The headline fight is arguably one of the best fights that can be made.
However, the undercard is shockingly bad.
There's no way I'll be stopping up for it. I ordered the first, watched a bit of the build up then went to bed and skipped through to the main event in the morning. So the undercard doesn't really bother me, but its shite that this is becoming the norm. Wasn't that long ago £15 was the standard price.
 
I know its early to be asking this but what time do you reckon ring walks will be for this fight uk time? I'm guessing 4.30am or roundabouts. Will probably set my alarm and fire the IPTV up

I've only ever put two proper all nighters in. First was Lewis v Holyfield one which was achieved with the help of a few chemicals. Second was Mayweather v Hatton. It was a long, long night. You go in with the best intentions about getting into the under card but by the time the fight came round I was absolutely fucked and couldn't wait for it to be over

I’ll end up reluctantly buying it.

I won’t check my phone/twitter etc and watch it back as live the next morning.

Shocking pricing when you consider the time & undercard. I hope this now isn’t the norm.

Didn't 9-9 rounds used to be pretty normal? I agree that it's daft that they seem to have to find a winner in each round when there's clearly nowt in it.

I probably will for the ease of being able to watch it when I get up instead of pissing on trying to find a good replay. But the price will put a lot of people off who would have been in two minds.
It will be up on mmacore within an hour of it finishing I reckon. They always are.
It's no surprise iptv is so popular though at these prices.

25 notes for any PPV is ridiculous, however I'll pay it just because it is the best heavyweight match up out there at the minute...

No it wouldn’t. How is that?? Fury actually came back stronger and hit wilder with a great counters left hand and you could argue won the round apart for the point deduction

Not on my time watching boxing
Surely there wont be that many paying 25 quid for a 5am main event?
Few hundred thousand at least.
Warrington back with Eddie Earn
Aye. Undercard of Bob v Jim YouTube fight.

warren must think ‘fuck me’ but then I suppose for him it’s par for the course

Just my opinion. Last round, knowing you only have a couple more mins to get through will have a different feeling to taking that early on in a fight.
I want fury to win but think Wilder will probably stop him this time.
It hasn't mind. Its more than the first fight.
Fair enough. I was thinking under 100k. Dont have a clue how many they normally get, just a random guess.
