    Tyson gets an F for his understanding of Liberty but his comments about the Klitchko's connection with international tyrants is common knowledge and can be found with little effort on the net.

    This will be a fight for the ages.

    I'm more excited for this fight than any since Kovalev beat Hopkins.

    Wladimir is muscular as always, he literally has the perfect physique. This would be one of his career best wins if he can comprehensively beat the young and talented Fury.

    Fury has talked the talk. But will he walk the walk? And how will youth fare VS experience?

    This is a changing of the guard type of fight.

    I will be watching live. May the best man win!

    You know it's funny, I remember when Wladimir was young and HE was the young guy coming up the ladder facing the experienced guys (Mercer, Botha, Byrd etc.).

    Its funny how life does a full circle like that. He is now in the opposite position.

    Fury did train seriously. He is one pound heavier than Wlad. He is also 3 inches taller. Saw the weigh in . He has a physic like Arreola. Soft. I predict that Wlad wiill KO him in the 8th round.

    Fury is in the best shape that we've ever seen; Wlad may be over trained; maybe both are over trained. I think Fury is prepared to simply box for 12 rounds and take the loss because he would have to out-hit Wlad 2:1 in Germany to win the championship and he knows that's not going to happen. Wlad seems happy to win decisions and minimize the amount of shots he takes so he's also content to box 12 rounds being the winner. Fury can make this difficult for Wlad the more he boxes southpaw from his back foot. I'll call a 12 UD Wlad.

    Fury seems confident. He's a talker that's for sure.

    Is he really 6'9"? In that one picture he didn't seem any taller than Vlad.

    Anyway good match-up.

    Fury can fight but I've seen him buzzed a time or two so I don't know if he can handle Vlad's power. If he can it will be interesting.

    Don't think he can though. Vlad fairly early. Let's say the 4th.

    Maybe even Vlad's first body punch KO. Yeah, I like that. Fury's too tall for his own good. Straight right to the solar plexus and Fury ends the fight rolling around on the canvas.

    Call me crazy, but I have Fury by KO! He is much younger and fresher!

    I agree. Wlad hasn't been knocking people out recently, but he has become a very smart fighter and will outbox Fury and win a UD 12. Or Fury might get frustrated at some point, lose his cool, and do something stupid which exposes him to a power left hook or straight right from Wlad that knocks him out.

    I think Wlad will win and he is the favorite going in so this is what will probably happen.

    Hopefully this fight will not turn out to be a clinchfest.

    Still waiting on the Rod Stewart performance.

    Lol @ Mick Hennessey getting into an argument with Vitali over ring cushions. As a neutral observer, it seems to me the Klitschko camp put it there to limit the mobility of Fury. Some guy from the BBBofC (Britain's boxing governing body) claimed he'd never seen a ring that unacceptable in 44 years. I don't blame them though, when you're the champ, you dictate the terms.

    The fight will start in approx 10 mins. I believe that Fury is more like 607, not the 609 that is reported. He looks the same height as Wlad. This should be interesting. If Fury exhibits and maintains good movement, it could the long and disastrous night for Wlad. Two big Ifs.

    The gray starting to really show in Vlad's hair. He just can't seem to pull the trigger.

    Fury very mobile for a guy his size.

    Vlad looking old right now.

    Fury is catching Klitschko at the right time

    Vlad's straight right has faded badly at near forty years of age. Same thing happened to Holmes and Louis at the end. And this looks like the end for the champ.

    I pretty much called it. Father time beat Wlad. Banks was giving expert directions. Wlad could not pull the trigger. Fury won. But I was not impressed.
