      Bellew outclassed by Usyk and caught by a right peach I wouldn’t be surprised he wakes up a red!

      Got given the knockout Haye said he’d be doing to him.

      Usyk really needs to set his sights elsewhere though before even contemplating the idea of taking on AJ. Going straight into heavyweight vs AJ and he’s in trouble, serious trouble.

      Bellew showing he's not ready for the top. As Ernie said, Usyk doesn't want a piece of AJ, that won't end well.

      AJ coming in for some stick from Lennox Lewis, saying he’s more bothered about the money than proving himself against top names like Wilder and to stop chasing easy pay days.

      Who has Wilder actually fought? Anyone of any note? In what will be his 41st fight, only now is he fighting someone you can deem a real contender, Fury. In them 41 fights he’d have fought 30, pretty much unknown Americans.

      AJ however, in 22 fights has fought and beaten; Whyte, Klitschko, Parker and Povetkin. He’s got a far better looking list of fights and wins than Wilder and Fury, yet AJ is apparently chasing the easy paydays...

      Don’t get the rubbish talk about AJ and easy pays, just need to look at the list of names he’s faced compared to the list of names from the ones he’s apparently running from.

      Fury coming in 3 stone heavier than Wilder. Looking at the build up I think Fury has well and truly got into Wilders head.

      Big fan of Fury and think he can win the fight but the only question is if it is a little too soon into his comeback.

      Fury win to set up a fight with AJ would be great!

      How did he get up from that!! What a punch that was, thought he was done and he got up and went after Wilder again!

      What a fight and if Fury has this, what a comeback!

      Draw, what afucking joke after that. Awful awful decision.

      In hindsight, not that surprising, Fury controlled the fight but those two knockdowns and fighting in the States gave the opportunity to the judges to screw him. Fury won that and with some ease.

      Once again the sport let down by the judges after a great fight. Judging it as a draw was bad enough, but the judge who gave Wilder the win shouldn’t be allowed to judge again.

      Shocker. Anybody who had Fury ONLY four rounds ahead outside the knockdowns knows f**k all about scoring a fight.

      Fury bossed 34/36 minutes and Wilder gets gifted a draw.

      Disgusting.

      The guy who gave Wilder the win had him down for the first 4 rounds. Absolutely ridiculous.

      The way boxing operates and is judged is slowly killing the sport, it’s turning people off.

      It was a great fight, the best heavyweight fight in years and could have been the start of a real 3 way tussle between Fury, Wilder and AJ for the next few years and put some momentum back into the division and instead it’s overshadowed by the judges. Again.

      Incredible effort by Fury and agree with everyone, he certainly deserved the win. Outfought Wilder for maybe 8-9 of the 12 rounds.

      Joshua would struggle against Fury..

      Maybe but then again there's a massive gulf in technical quality between Joshua and Wilder. Wilder showed last night he's not got much more than that massive right hand whilst Joshua proved a lot more with the way he dispatched Parker and Povetkin.

      One thing to mention though, how the hell did Fury get up in that 12th round. He was KO’d on the way down and when his head bounced off the canvas it looked like Wilder had finally got him.

      On the replay you see his eyes come back after about 6/7 seconds, sees the ref and just jumps straight up, incredible.

      Win lose or draw, despite his charm offensive fury is still an absolute bellend and would love to see joshua bury him. Yeah on balance fury probably won last night but it isn't the great injustice some people will insist on.

      Obvious issues with the scoring but have to say I thought watching Fury get up off the canvas after that monster combo in the 12th was one of the most awesome moments you'll see in boxing. He was absolutely gone and I don't think anyone watching would have expected him to get up after the way he went down. Unbelievable heart, whatever your opinion of the guy is.

      Haha, brilliant  ;D. The faces in the crowd were also great on the slo mo replay. Utter disbelief. The meme potential in both the knockdowns and the lovey dovey hug at the end are huge!

      Nah he was doing a few histrionics for the crowd, eyes suddenly darting to Fury dragging himself up, then Wilder smiles.

      I thought Fury had done enough in the fight even with the two knockdowns to win. But Wilder is not a great fight. All he does is swing that one f**king shot.

      AJ will batter Wilder.

      On that I probably agree, but thought he got his tactics mainly right last night - apart from inviting on Wilder when he should of been keeping him at arms length with his jab.

      Nah no danger. AJ is programmed mate - he’s great at what he does but you can see him processing, thinking and then reacting. Fury does all that simultaneously - it’s natural.

      Fury would feint him out of his mind and win comfortably in my humble....
