I know there's a boxing thread but I think this fight deserves its own.
What are your predictions?
Fury reckons he will KO him inside 2.
The safe bet is probably Fury on points.

If you mean the fight against Wallin theres not a chance mate. The cut he sustained in that fight was that bad it'll be a consideration for the rest of his career. If anything he would be more likely to try and get him out early, the yanks love a knockout and his future lies there.
The aftermath of that cut will drastically alter the tactics for the Wilder rematch because he will consciously be guarding that brow line and less likely to get involved in a war. This talk of early knockouts will be purely PPV hoorah.
Yeah I can see your point re the cut sustained against Wallin. I think I just don’t feel confident that he got hurt in that fight because it makes Wilder seem more likely to exploit that.
Love Fury and back him all the way. Just not sure the better boxer will win this rematch.
