That depends on when they fight but assuming it's next then Fury's getting knocked out inside 8 but to be fair I'd pick Wilder to knock Fury out regardless of when they fight but I EXPECT Wilder to take him out if they fight next.
As you know Fury has been out of the ring for almost 3 years...
Best answer: That depends on when they fight but assuming it's next then Fury's getting knocked out inside 8 but to be fair I'd pick Wilder to knock Fury out regardless of when they fight but I EXPECT Wilder to take him out if they fight next.
As you know Fury has been out of the ring for almost 3 years and since he came back has had just 2 "fights", the first one was a joke and then he went the distance with Pianeta, a guy who a washed up Kevin Johnson knocked out last year. In fact, of his last 7 fights going into the Fury one he'd been knocked out 6 times but he went 10 rounds reasonably comfortably with Fury.
But here's the bigger issue and it's one not often covered. How good is Fury? Everyone rightly gave him credit for dethroning Klitschko in Dussledorf but I thought Klitschko nicked it (because Fury was deducted a point otherwise a draw on my card) but even accepting the official verdict what does it tell us about Fury? When Cunningham dropped him he got up and turned the fight around but if Wilder hit Fury with the same shot he wouldn't have beaten the count.
He got a gift of a decision early in his career, he's been dropped twice by smaller men, he hasn't knocked out anyone decent and Klitschko was his only competitive fight before the first bell.
Wilder on the other hand has bombed out every opponent he's ever faced, Ortiz and Stiverne are better than anyone's Fury's faced apart from Klitschko and actually if the Klitschko who turned up for Joshua turned up for Fury, Fury would have lost anyway.
If Fury had exactly the same resume as he has now but minus Klitschko and was fighting Wilder next, no one would give him a hope.
Wilder by KO, punches too hard, is too fast and too unorthodox and Fury is far from his best. Whilst Wilder's been living life in the gym, Fury's been in the nightclubs getting off his face, if he beats Wilder in his third fight back after 3 years off doing drugs and drinking beer I'll find him myself and shake his hand.
