Usyk vs Chisora is expected for 28 Mar. Terrible opponent for Del Boy really.

Joshua and Whyte fancying Del Boy to put one on Usyk.

If he allows Chizzy to catch him the way he allowed cruiserweights to, he's getting starched imo.

Fury says he's gonna sit on his shots more and I believe him. Not a terrible idea, got caught last time anyway. God help him if he walks into one though!

Makes the move to kronk seem much more sensible and calculated if he adopts a this new aggressive game plan. Be harder for wilder to starch him out cold while his back is up against the ropes, rather than moving around at range like the first fight. Still got a nagging suspicion that wilder finishes the job this time though.

Chisora always has issues against anyone who is a decent boxer. He is only effective against brawlers. Can see him getting beat comprehensively. No surprise AJ and Whyte are backing him, he is their stablemate and probably under orders from Eddie.

As much as I love Fury, can see him being KO'd in this one.

I don't think Wilder respects Fury's power (or lack of) and I think he will go for an early KO (first 4-6 rounds). Especially after dropping him first.

Was saying to my brother, there are not a lot of other good fights out there at the moment. No super fights on the horizon outside of the HW scene.

It's interesting that Wilder spoke about feeling curiously hesitant and tense during the first fight. Echoes of Klitschko.

So you have to ask whether it's Fury's mind games or the fact that he really switches it on against these guys, who let's not forget are used to punching down.

Ol' pillow fists hits very hard. Whether they're shots that KO you is neither here nor there. Unless you're a double hard bastard who is willing to walk through the pain, you ain't walking a guy like Fury down inside 5 rounds.

Dubois V Joyce looks to be all set for April 18th. Cracking fight that.

I hope you're right. Just a feeling I got.

He has been dropped early on a number of times before - Pajkic, Cunningham, Firtha nearly did - it's not out of the question.

Absolutely nothing is out of the question concerning Wilder. He's an absolute monster puncher. 15st

Dubois v Joyce is a lovely little matchup. Who do you fancy for that?
