I think sport needs big characters and big tyson is definitely one of them.the promoters of boxing fights have to build it big style but guys like tyson fury and his name sake Mike tyson don't have to try to hard on that front good idea lubo setting the alarm might try that one next.

Got to agree Jinky. Although I feel it's true to say the truly great fighters I was privileged to watch during the Ali era, too many to mention here, is something we may well never see again, I think we have to say also we've witnessed something of a force of nature in the form of Fury.
Great respect for both of last night's fighters. Warriors both.

They tell me Ringo had a ferocious left hook Lennono ! People who know better than I do reckon Sugar Ray was pound for pound the best of all time. Ali was my number one though . That era was something of an epoch in so many ways. The music, the change in social attitudes, Dylan with his inspiring lyrics. A truly special time to be young and aware. What the hell happened? Bob was wrong, the times didn't change.
That was meant to be a reply to Lennono. Senior moment ?????

Fury proving again hes levels above Wilder who in my opinion was not a great Champion.His antics at the end showed how much of a fanny he is and as Fury said an idiot ,a sore loser .I hope he fights Usyk next who more than matches him with boxing skills.Think Furys size might be the difference though.

Hope I don't piss off the younger Noisers Jinky, but even on our local turf here in Caledonia, at both pro and amateur level we had great boxers who also had the personality to match their fighting skills. Chic Calderwood, Dick Mc Taggart, Cowboy Mc Cormack. That's before we mention the blokes who went on to be world champions at their weight. And, of course, even before our time, Benny Lynch. Could go on for an eternity I suppose. Wonderfull memories.

A good big un always beats a good little un

Wilder thought before the first fight he was taking on a blow up doll
Even fury at 50% beat him despite the judges decision
The last two fights he’s taken his soul 🤣
I was thinking great credit to wilder for the heart he showed but a guy that’s came up with more excuses than the head of refereeing in this country
He has a heart but nae class at all
Wouldnae kind his bird or his bank balance though

Always liked Wayne McCullough Jinky , he grew up in the Shankhill but fought for Ireland at the 92 Olympics were he carried the Irish flag .That man was hard as nails and went the distance with a prime Morales and Naseem.

Not forgetting Scott Harrison too
He was a beast before he lost the plot just as his career took off

Most guy that fight fury will find him too much
Wilder is 6ft 7 and 260 lbs but he was rag dolled. Plus fury moves like a cruiserweight
As much as I like and rate usyk I just think it’s a step too far. Joshua never really had a go at him for some reason.
