He didnt lick his blood....

He was taunting him yeah, but nothing more than that.

I will agree that the pre match bullshit was wat OTT. Being carried in on a throne and that black megatron outfit was absurd...

I though it was a good fight and they were both clinging on all the way from round 2 when Tyson effectively stopped him.

Wilder didnt have an answer to Fury and looked like he wasn't in the condition he needed to be in to compete.

I initially slammed Fury as an embarrassment to boxing when some hugevfat hypo arrived on the scene but he has dragged his arse out of some dark places and come out the other side an undefeated champion. Props to him and he boxed (excuse the pun) the ears off Wilder tonight.

Him and AJ will be a monster UK fight, probably at the Lane.

Well done to Fury and the post match sing song was funny as fuck.

Yeah he did. He's a thug fighter not a boxer. If you enjoy watching fighting then OK, I prefer watching the sport of boxing, trying to call that bullshit boxing is beyond me.

I literally watched it live - he did, literally. If you do one of them Google things you will see that the Sun, Express, Independent, every sport website and newspaper - and me, says he did, because he did.

Yeah, dunno. I have watched it a few times and would say he didn't. It looked more like taunting to me...but I have been wrong before. I think the media hyped the incident because it sells papers or gets eyeballs or whatever.

As to Fury, I think he is a sensational personality and a clearly fabulous heavyweight boxer (or fighter, as you put it). It is a credit to him that he has been able to drag himself out of some pretty dark places. I watched the fight here in Australia with my brother at a pub. There would have been over a thousand people in the house and not one of them supporting the American, who seems like a one-trick pony to me. I don't think that Wilder should have exercised the rematch option. I doubt he will go any closer to beating Fury next time in.

I watched the fight and also the Tyson Fury documentary thing episode 1 last night on TV. Firstly 'the fight' - in my view he did what he needed to do to win. which I think means he dominated the centre of the ring, engaged in a lot of grappling to keep away from Wilder's right hand, and managed on a couple of occasions to land a punch, one of which was behind DW's ear. He definitely did or at least attempted to the licking blood thing, I think as a show of who was boss, maybe even a Gypsy thing? if you're comparing the 'fight' to the art of pure boxing, it wasn't that, more a mixture of boxing, wrestling and MMA to some degree. But in my view he did what needed to be done and did it well, only being docked 1 point, which sort of showed that key people including the ref knew what was going on.

As a bloke, I quite like him from what they've chosen to show us on TV. He seems down to earth, caring, loving and proud of his culture - whatever the rest of us may think about it, it's his normal. There seems little doubt he's never very far from the edge and I wonder/fear for what might happen when he retires and doesn't have boxing. I hope he survives.

In a boxing match against AJ don't know who would win? Probably better for the sport if it was AJ, but the fact that Fury got up after those Wilder punches in the first fight was extraordinary.
