  1. Has Tyson Fury really been tested?

    I’ve only seen a handful of his fights, most against very unsung competition. Wouldn’t Glazkov, eg, wear him down the way Adamek was?

    • My lofty ranking of Fury is mainly due to attrition, and the weakness of the division below Klitschko (and the B level of Pulev and Povetkin)

      He is indeed untested against any top tier opposition, and is an accident waiting to happen. He’s being matched carefully though, and I favour him to beat Chisora in their upcoming rematch

      A fight with Glazkov would be a pick em

  2. Makes sense.

    Btw, just caught Kovalev’s latest; monster. When can we get him and Stevenson in a ring!

    • Unfortunately, with Adonis signing with Haymon and going to Showtime for an eventual Bhop fight, it looks like Adonis v Kovalev is dead in the water

      Stevenson never wanted the fight anyway

      • Bleh. Bleh for Bleh-Hop.

        Love Bernard for many qualities, his courage and intelligence and wit — but haven’t enjoyed a round of his in years, and in fact I liked very few of them in his prime. He might just have enough tricks in the bag to tie up a Stevenson or, harder, a Kovalev, but it would be another one of his formaldehyde jobs: his bloody dull way of jarring up opponents to stink out a win.

        If Adonis doesn’t want Kovalev, then he’s sensible, at least. 😉

      • I’ve actually always enjoyed watching Bhop work his peculiar type of magic, even in his ugliest encounters

        It’d be an unwise man who discounts his chances of upsetting Stevenson
