    Briedis would win, despite the size difference.

    I rarely disagree with Charlie here, and Briedis I can't praise enough, but I would take Hughie over Briedis in a heavyweight fight. Hughie's just a basket of skills, with height and reach to go with them, though he's not focused on knocking opponent's out.

    What I said about Joshua is that he is has power, good punching technique, but muscle-bound with low stamina and no legs.

    I'm glad Tyson agrees with me:

    ""I always knew what he was. I'll tell you what he is. He's a big man with a puncher's chance. That's it. He's got no footwork, no speed and no stamina neither. I will box rings round him "

    It's not a surprise that Fury wants to fight Joshua as he hates him and his promotor Eddie Hearn.Joshua had this to say about Vitali'when i got in the ring i saw Vitali really staring me down and i thought dont worry about that mate we can do a few rounds too' so much for his humble mr nice guy persona which of course is fake as the guys a former drug dealer.Joshua also mentioned that he's from the streets when referring or threatening Vitali.Vitali 5 or 6 years ago would have cleaned the thugs clock,would have given him an absolute hiding but at 45 he's most likely to old but there's no doubt the thought of coming back to fight Joshua would have or is running through his mind.But maybe Vitali could come back at 45,he's very strong has an iron chin and a very scientific style so i would never write him off.

    That big palooka got (very) lucky against a middle aged Wlad...who would have easily dispatched the thug 5+ years ago.
    I cannot wait to see Fury whip that boy like a stepchild!

    Fury says he's coming back and in training and wants Joshua.Don't know how serious he is and whether he can keep it up.Hopefully he can fight Joshua in front of 80,ooo with his friend Billy Joe Saunders on the undercard against Golovkin.Both Fury and Saunders would win them fights.Saunders will beat Golovkin but not many know that lol.Hopefully if these fights are made and they can fight on the same card that fat mess of a man Dan Rafael can watch from the front row as his 2 boys get beat.

    I appears that Tyson Fury will have a lot of work to do if he chooses to begin boxing again. I am in my late 60's and I do not have a beer belly to match Fury's.

    Man how does someone let themselves go that much? I guess he just can't mentally get himself in the game. He needs to get back to this shape. This was 4 years ago I believe.

    It will take a lot of effort and discipline for Fury to return to the condition he was in 4 yrs. Right now I view him as an uber assclown.

    Tbh i will publicly root for Fury but im not a fan of his antics or boxing style. I would rather watch a Povetkin type and miss the Wlad era.
    On the plus side he doesnt take crap and stands up for himself. so im not all negative ;)

    Ditto here. I could do without his excessive yappin’ at times, but he has some guts & bravado...which is increasingly rare amongst modern “males”. For fighters, I prefer Fedor & Mirko Filipovic’s “silent assassin” style...ice cold & dangerous.

    I think we will know a lot after his first tune up fight. If he is able to come into the fight conditioned and boxes like a world class professional, then it will be promissing. The potential is there to pick up where Wlad left off, but he has to really want it.
