    My heart is picking Cotto. My brain is picking Canelo.

    Pacquiao-Cotto didn't get 1.5 million buys. Cotto-Canelo has no chance. Never listen to De la Hoya.

    So hard to get submissions in boxing.

    wow, that makes me look really annoying. I am looking forward to Canelo vs Alvares. It will make me more excited for the next GGG fight.

    I am pumped and scared. I am a big klitschko fan. Love the pageantry. He didn't look good in his last outing and Tyson Fury poses some intereting challenges. I am waiting to see history in the making and Klitcschko go down and at the same time I don't want to see it. I love that type of tension in a fight. Seems to happen best with long term champs for me.

    I'll take Wlad and I don't see it being close. Fury is untested at this level. Sure he has the size to match Wlad and he holds a knockout punch in his arsenal, but that's about it. The fight goes one of two ways. Either Fury freezes just as Haye did, giving Wlad the easiest of UDs, or he's in there like a mad man and he gets picked off.

    Where is the evidence that Fury can box at this level? Are we that desperate to have a contender at HW? This guy is an untested hype-job with some nous when it comes to selling fights. He's another David Haye.

    Tyson Fury may have the greatest boxing name ever.......


    But that's about all he will have for Wlad. I don't see him getting past Wlad's jab. And I don't see him withstanding Wlad's straight right hand for long either. I got Wlad by KO in the 9th.

    Klitschko is not having a great fight. I feel we'll have a new heavyweight champion of the world in about 20 minutes or less.

    Didn't expect it at all, but it's a great thing for heavyweight boxing.

    I am a bit disappointed but not surprised much. Would have liked to have seen Deontay Wilder come a bit and take it. Won't be too shocked if Klitschko makes a comeback and applies himself and reclaims his belt.

    That's about as wrong as I've ever been. I thought Fury had no chance but in the end he faced a guy that was scared to throw. Great result for the division too, there's a rematch clause in the contract, plus he could go down the Wilder route or even David Haye.

    The heavyweight division should be nice and competitive for a good couple of years. The only fighter with any Klitshcko-esque potential is Joshua, and if he has a chin, I see him dominating for a while. But that's a few years away.

    Klitschko didn't look extraordinary in his previous outing with a near journeyman boxer who just happened to be a good athlete. He showed some vulnerability there. And that is the chief reason I thought he had a loss coming. Couple that with a wife that has been having problems with post partum and mild injury that delayed the fight.... Frankly didn't know much about Fury aside for in dimensions he would be a hard guy to find a sparring partner like. At 6'6'' it is rare to fight a guy taller than you.

    Anyone professing to know a lot about Fury would be bullshitting. This guy wasn't tested prior to this fight at all. All I knew of him going in was that he was a big guy with bad footwork. I still believe that. I don't see Fury being anything more than a transitional champion and I think he would struggle with Wilder and maybe even Povetkin.

    Well, Tyson Fury lost the IBF belt due to them stripping it from him for not wanting to fight the mandated opponent and he's being investigated for hate crimes.

    A HATE CRIME???? Just for running his mouth? C'mon man. I disagree with practically everything he said, but that's just pathetic.

    Freedom of Speech is alive and well I see...

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    Deontay Wilder is scheduled to fight again in January. Curious to see how he handles better competition.
