Seriously???? If he has “zero chance against a big puncher like ” you say , then go on to say put him in the ring with Wilder???? Moron ,Wilder though raw, has a fully loaded howitzer in his right hand, Fury has a leaky defense and a questionable chin. At least with Haye he has a huge reach advantage , with Fury he won’t have that would end up sparked ….

KL, some of those guys I named could do with squaring off against one another, true, but that’s not Wilder’s concern. He needs to fight steadily better opposition himself and this is his management’s job….unless he can knock everyone out all the way to the title.

Posted September 23, 2013 2:29 pm

Ivan Jellical I knew everything you put in your post, but I am making the observation that none of the boxers you listed have faced each other, and some of those you listed like Mago is only just stepping up, unless you count an aging Mcline as a step up………and Boystov has not stepped up despite having 33 wins!
So I guess I’m saying there are plenty of matchups that should be made between those guys you mention never mind Wilder.

This injury to Haye was a tough break for everyone involved, the fighters, the fans, the local economy etc. Fury wanted this fight and it was a massive payday for him. I didn’t think he could win it, but he and his people thought they could. They wanted the fight, Mr. Collins.
This is professional boxing and these men fight for money. Every heavyweight fight involves risk, but, if you are being managed correctly, that risk is weighed against the financial reward. Fury wants this fight and this money. He, and every fighter, could get knocked out for a lot less. The Kilitschkos, Haye, Chisora, and Arreola all have losses. That goes along with meeting top men, but that is where the money is, and a fighter has a very short time to earn his fortune. Even with a loss, a win or two, and, like Arreola and Chisora, they are right back in it. It is good that top men are willing to fight rather than pad their records trying to back into a title.

KL, I don’t know if you know this, but David Price (half-Price as he’s known these days) had blown away Audley Harrison in something like 90 second of round number 1 before Wilder dropped the big wild rights on him. Martin Rogan had beaten Harrison in an 8 rounder, I think, previously. Now, Deontay needs to take on someone like Jennings who also beat Liakhovich previously and Fedosov. Wach has beaten a couple of half-decent names and took Wlad 12, shaking him once. He’s tough. Both sparred Haye. Wouldn’t blame Arreola for turning down Wilder at the moment. Abdusalamov has a fight with Perez coming up, hasn’t he? Afterwards, maybe. Chisora would be perfect for testing Deontay. Thompson only loses inside the distance to Wlad. He’d do. Solis beat Ray Austin, top amateur, had a weird loss to Vitali. That’s another one. Charr was going to take on Haye until Haye pulled out of that one. Lost to Vitali after sustaining a cut. He’d do. Mansour, old feller, getting on a bit. Perfect for Wilder then!!

Deontay Wilder needs to start finding better opponents. He must be running out of shopworn stiffs and faded names and joke guys like Harrison. Prizefighter is only fought over 3 rounds. Here’s some names for Wilder to consider: Chisora, Abdusalamov, Wach, Thompson, Boytsov, Jennings, Solis, Mansour, Charr, Fedosov.

HAS HE PULLED OUT OF BIG BOTHER AS WELL

Posted September 22, 2013 6:42 am 


Boomboomboy

Anyone who thinks Haye doesn’t want this fight or done this deliberately hasn’t got a clue about boxing. He’s practically lost a winning lottery ticket losing a guaranteed £5 million purse. This after paying out for his training expenses etc I’m pretty sure he will be absolutely devastated. As for scared he faced a prime Wlad, a dangerous chisora so why on earth would he be scared of a limited fighter with little power such as fury?
David Haye is a business man, a very intelligent one at that, a natural Cruiser, he knew the money was at heavy so bulked up. He picks his opponents very carefully, when Wlad and Vit wanted everything their way he went the Valuev route to get the title, thus bringing a 50/50 split to the Klit table.
My point is with this fury fight he’d have made over £10 million from 2 low/zero risk fights in Harrison and Fury so why on earth would he pull out if he didn’t need to?
Also if anyone seen the sparring video he put out, he looked fantastic and was making wilder look like a novice.

Posted September 22, 2013 5:42 am 


KL

Assyrian God you say “Even people like Pajkic, Rogan, Firtha, McDermott, Maddalone and Power etc are better than the shopworn and washed up versions of Harrison”————

Just prior to fighting Wilder, Harrison had just won “Prize Fighter” for the second time, a tournament in which Rogan Koed Sowsnowski, but then lost every round to Harrison, so not quite sure how you can say Rogan was better than Harrison.

Posted September 21, 2013 8:24 pm 


TARK

bringiton…, You’re an idiot.. You don’t get smaller on steroids. Haye trimmed down from 217 for Valuev to weighing 210 for his last few fights.. He’s smaller, stronger, faster, sleeker..

Most cruiserweights like Huck, Adamek, Mormek bulk up to 220 or more for heavyweights because they’re fighting guys 250.. Haye has taken the opposite view.. Maximum strength, minimum size, just like the other weight divisions.

I’d also pick Wilder over Mago too.

Posted September 21, 2013 7:57 pm

Joanna, I think in my opinion Wilder would beat all those second tier fighters you mention. I’m not confident that Wilder could beat all of the first tier fighters, but then again who apart from the K brothers be confident of that?
Out of the the fighters you mention, I’d say Wilder could probably beat Cunningham, Chisora,Thompson, Wach,Fury & I’d give him a good chance against Arreola.

Posted September 21, 2013 7:55 pm

JOANNE Very valid points. Deontay is still a fighter ‘under construction, still a prospect with lots to prove. I believe he can defeat most of the 2nd tier fighters you mentioned but not quite ready for the likes of Arreola, Stiverne Wach, Solis, Abdusalamov.. A fight with Chisora sounds just about right.

Posted September 21, 2013 7:54 pm

Okay you Wilder doubters, can you list a few boxers who Wilder would need to beat in order to shake off the “Fraud” label that you have given him.
Please be specific with names, rather than any top twenty heavy.

Posted September 21, 2013 7:31 pm 


KL

Look Liahkovic wasn’t “shot to pieces”……..sure Jennings was better than Liahkovic, but Liahkovic was firing back and far from “shot to pieces.
Fraudley had just come off his second Prize Fighter win, so again whilst Fraudley is no world beater he wasn’t “shot to pieces”.
Wilder got plenty of power and speed, and he beat 2 fighters past their primes…….but not “shot to pieces”.

hit and slip, I still think you are making too much of the age number……yes in 10 years time Fury will only be 34……..but that doesn’t mean that Fury will still be competitive. Given how Fury has performed in the last few years, it’s pretty certain that Fury will get tagged badly plenty of times in the next 5 years……let alone 10.
Take someone like Wlad or even Vitali……..they have longevity because they don’t get tagged too often these days…….but I can’t see Fury having this longevity…….precisely because he will get tagged plenty of times in the next few years.
Sorry but I think Fury might not remain relevant past 2016……even if he still would be barely past his mid twenties.

Posted September 21, 2013 6:54 pm

Joanna, Jennings threw everything but the kitchen sink at Liahkovic, but couldn’t put him down, and Liahkovic was still firing back at Jennings……so Liahkovic wasn’t quite as “shot” as you make out!

Honestly, Fury does have some talent and he’s good for the sport. Has people talking about boxing, regardless of whether the comments are negative or positive. I was looking forward to this fight, still am. Although Fury is already talking about moving on I doubt that he’ll simply walk away from his BEST possible payday. He might be ‘flexing his might’ looking for extra perk$. Economically this situation doesn’t benefit either fighter. They need eachother. Although I believe that Haye will win, Fury is young and can come back, maybe even a rematch down the line, time will tell. Peace to all!

If the money’s good, and it probably will be, they’ll find a stand in opponent for Fury by next week. Many tickets have already been sold, the fight is scheduled to be televised in the UK and the US, and Hughie is slated to fight on the undercard. This wasn’t Fury’s fault, so they can bill it as a legitimate stay busy bout for Tyson who hasn’t fought for 5 months.

KL….I think he could have a good 10years ahead of him.He would only be 34years old which is still pretty young. Now ofcourse I know if he gets into some real dragged out wars this would change. But also Fury seems like one of those tough pikey types where its going to take alot for him to fold up.These type of guys have that macho tough guy mind set,that ofcourse can really help in boxing.Really its a number game and without a crystall ball its hard to say…but in 10yrs only being 34 it could happen without being imposible.

KL

hit and slip, you REALLY think Fury has 10 years prime fighting in him??
You’re getting too carried away with the age numbers.Sure Fury is younger than most of his contemporaries, but that itself doesn’t mean that Fury will outlast them. Every fighter is different, a 40 year old Vitali would be strong favourite to beat a 24 year old Fury, and Fury seems pretty easy to hit, which suggest plenty of heavier hitters than Cunningham & Pajkic would be able to hurt Fury. I’d be surprised if Fury is still in the running in 5 years time, he’ll have had a good few bad losses by then I’m pretty sure.

boomboy…I wasnt to crazy about Fury at first.But I see a guy getting better in his fights filling out his frame,in a good way that is.And a guy whos movements and ring IQ is improving with a nice jab to work off of.And ofcourse with the hvwt div not really a super skilled div bursting with talent and Fury so young and improving this all works in his favor.Im not going to be shocked if he picks up a world belt down the line.Unless ofcourse out of nowhere comes a young Mike Tyson,a young Ali,a young W.Klit, a young L.L. But at this rate he has alot of things on his side.

He’s far too clumsy and lumbering and also has poor power for a man of his size. Ali talked but backed it up, fury won’t do the same ill bet you anything you want.
As for being a top heavyweight at 24, that says a lot more of the current crop of heavyweights than it does of furys ability

Haye needs to retire.

Listen let’s have it right, Tyson Fury is only involved in this massive pay per view event, because he’s talked himself into it.
I’ve seen nothing in the ring to allow him this status and he has himself has admitted most people will be buying the event to see him shut up by being knocked out.
This pantomime villain act has worked a treat and he was reportedly set to walk away with £4-5 million for this fight. So why on earth would he not reschedule it?? Not a chance it won’t be rescheduled, he’s gonna lose as soon as he steps up, so why lose to a wilder,pulev,Klitschko for chicken feed when you can lose to Haye for millions?
Gotta give Fury credit he’s an intelligent man

Posted September 21, 2013 3:18 pm 


KL

Dwc, you could be right, but I see key differences between Price & Wilder………both had huge eye catching power, but Wilder has better hand speed than Price. The other big difference is the mental outlooks of both men,prior to his fights Thompson, Price was interviewed and he said himself that it was only recently that he believed he was good enough to become world champ, Wilder on the other hand exudes self belief and confidence. Price was mentally fragile, but there don’t seem to be any of the same signals of mental fragility and self doubt about Wilder.
Like I said the important thing for Wilder is to develop a good defense rather than worry whether his chin can take a punch.

Posted September 21, 2013 3:13 pm 


dwc

K.L….Wilder could be another Price a guy with athletic looking abilty,strong power,but has career ending flaws.In fact Price looked like he had more abilty in stance, basic skills then any of the new hvwts. but became helpless in deep water.Im not saying Wilder might not be the next big thing…but theres much to prove first.Who Wilder fights in his next fight will show how positive him and his team are at this point.There are many good fights next for him to make a real statement..C.A…Boystov..Pulev..Thompson..or even a limited but tough guy like Margo.Again its a lets see situation…

Posted September 21, 2013 2:47 pm

dwc I don’t view Wilder as “limited”………..we all know (Even the Wilder doubters know) that he hits about as hard as anyone in the division, and let’s not forget only about a year ago many doubted that Wilder had genuine power and that his weak opponents made him look as if he had power.Wilder has since proved that he does have genuine power.Now his doubters are focusing on whether Wilder’s chin can take a punch……although I think much more important is what defensive skills Wilder brings to his game, rather than whether his chin holds up. If Wilder has good defense then a weak chin is not the end of the line for Wilder. (Haye and Wlad both have relatively weak chins, but they both have done well because they avoid getting hit too much.
Wilder’s main weapon is his hand speed rather than his power, but speed and power will in my opinion take Wilder pretty far……if he has a good defense then the Sky’s the limit.

We get it Michael Collins, you hate Tyson. Well it wasn’t Tyson who pulled out. If Tyson had pulled out, you would have assassinated his character again. Doesn’t have the chin? I don’t think Tyson has ever been knocked cold like Hayes. Also, in Hayes’ biggest fight, he ran for 12 rounds and made a lame excuse at the end why he wouldn’t engage. Haye would have done the same against Tyson.

Posted September 21, 2013 2:02 pm 


bringiton

ignore Tark – he’s a card-carrying fool and homo.

My feeling is that Haye put himself in harm’s way deliberately. Not that he tried to get cut (and fyi you non-boxers one can be cut even with a helmet) rather, he was in a fatalistic mode, “if a knee blows or a cut comes … then it does.” That sort of thinking.
David Haye is and has been for years on anabolic steroids, the affects of which diminish as one ages. My guess is that steroids didn’t provide the ‘lift’ they normally bring to DH and he started dropping his guard, figuratively and literally.
My guess is that this fight won’t be ‘rescheduled’ before 2014 if ever.
Beyond that, I propose that news will soon arise about Ol’ Dave (and others) which will derail or even end, his ‘amazing’ career.

Michael Collins says.., “Does anyone really think that the 6’9″, fragile-chinned Fury had any actual chance to beat Haye in this fight?”

You damned RIGHT he had “an actual chance” to beat Haye. As far as being fragile chinned? Fury takes a good punch. Was he ever down??? Was Muhammad Ali down, and almost out, from a shot from 185-pound Henry Cooper? Yeah. You get hit smack on the chin by a 210lb Heavyweight, and even if you stand 6’9″ X 250 you go down. The thing is, do you get up and win? So far Tyson Fury has done nothing but win.

Haye is favored to win this contest. He isn’t a prohibitive favorite. He was cut in sparring. Foreman was cut in sparring preparing for his Ali fight.

Postpone the fight and set a new date. It’s a great fight. Let’s not kill it.

As far as Fury fighting Deontay Wilder instead of Haye??? That’s about as likely as Sergio Martinez getting into a ring with Grennady Golovkin.

As a boxer I think Haye is pure class. as a fighter its where I question him. He’s got KO power but in the Vlad fight his plan was to outbox him and win on points. When this didsnt happen he never threw everything at it and tried to get the KO, and rather took the decision loss rather than risk getting knocked out. That shows lack of heart in my book.

boxing barlow, the problem being Fury has to pick a good named opponent at this stage of his career even for a “stay busy” fight, other wise he won’t be well received by boxing fans…….and that’s one thing about Fury, he doesn’t like to get slated by the fans .
Picking Skelton as an opponent would be roundly criticized, but picking someone like Charr would go down well.

Posted September 21, 2013 12:12 pm 


boxing barlow

Exactly! Thats why the fight WILL happen. The only thing that may come into play is that Fury will take a lesser opponent who he is guarenteed to win against to remian active. A Mat Skelton for example. Will keep him active, give him a small pay day to tie him over, and give Haye time for his cut to heal.

Posted September 21, 2013 12:00 pm 


KL

Boxing Barlow, there’s no doubt there was huge interest in this fight, although the majority of fans and pundits had Haye as the winner.
The problem now is how long the postponement is……..if it is a long one then Fury is unlikely to want to wait and remain inactive, and there is always a risk with Fury that he loses his next fight.
Let’s assume that Fury takes a fight with Charr, Adamek, Boystov or even Wilder……..and he loses to them……..then suddenly the Haye vs Fury clash
doesn’t look as attractive.

This fight WILL happen. There is too much money in it for both fighters. Neither can make a 5th of the money they will out of this fight fighting anyone else (Klits exluded)

What stupid comments by this writer. There is tons of interest in this fight and Fury was looking at making 5 million quid for this fight. If Fury is so rubbish as this writer thinks then how is it a good move to go back to risking his career against lesser opposition for pennies compared to what he would have been paid for in this fight.

Wilder vs Fury would be a good clash, but I’ve a feeling Fury would not want to waste his training and switch to fighting a bigger guy like Wilder, more likely Fury wants someone of similar size to Haye………Charr or Adamek or even the somewhat reluctant Boystov would be good opponents.

I dont think Haye is much if any better than Cunningham or Kevin Johnston

Wilder would whip Fury and Haye in the same night

So you think that a fight with Wilder is a safer fight for Fury than David Haye? Uh….smh

Haye’s injury could be good thing for Tyson Fury
