    Cheeseman is a unusual fighter. It's like
    He didn't get the memo that boxing is about hitting and not getting hit. He's fantastically fun to watch but he's totally going to be slurring his words before he is even 30

    My brothers met him a couple of times in a pub in Sidcup. He says he already has an air of punch drunkenness about him.

    I'm not surprised! He's always in fan friendly thrilling fights but it's not how you have a long career in this sport

    Yeah he was out on before he even went down

    Cheeseman has tonnes of heart but you can't fight collecting punches to the face. It's just not good for longevity so he really needs to go back to the drawing board and learn to how to be a bit more defensively minded.

    says me who's never stepped in the ring!

    You don’t need to have stepped in a ring to know Ted fights like an idiot

    Fury fight likely to be on between 4-5 am. Won't be staying up, will watch this at breakfast tomorrow morning (ensuring radio-silence - no spoilers) Hope too see Fury will win by decisive KO....no one too pull Deontey out early this time. Also Fury Ring walk as Undertaker carrying Deontey's coffin:cool:
    Anyone staying up to watch live?

    Morning, still thinking Wilder for the KO.

    I still think that it's a lottery every time you fight Wilder with that punching power.
    I am sure we will see Fury out box Wilder all night, and perhaps even a Fury stoppage, but you never know with heavyweights, and that's doubled when facing Wilder.
    He's always going to be throwing, and throwing big, and it just takes one to slip through and it can all go very wrong for Fury.
    I do, however, still think Fury wins this fight 9 out of 10 time though.

    This is exactly what makes the fight so exciting for me, Wilder can win this whole thing by winning just 1 second of the 36 minutes scheduled, whereas you'd expect Fury needing to win for 20+ minutes to get the job done, without allowing Wilder to win for that 1 second.

    Agreed and I still don’t think Fury has trained 100% for this. We all saw what happened in the first fight when he tired. Don’t particularly care for either of them to be honest, double KO :cry:

    Routing for fury and expect him to easy win but on the other hand I think It could be great for the division just to shake things up if wilder sparks fury.

    Then we’ll have 4 tops dogs with Ruiz as a potential 5th. Some great matchups there but at the rate these guys fight these days probably will be wasted.

    First three are key here. Wilder has to KO him early.

    Good first round from Wilder, Fury caught him late though.
