    Just catching up with the Fury v whyte build up online.

    I’ve got a funny feeling Whyte is going to put him down early on. Not convinced he will necessarily stop him though.
    I genuinely hope Whyte wins, I don't think he will but I'd love it, I have a love hate relationship with Fury, great boxer but the ***** that comes out his mouth does my nut in

    I've grown to love tyson after being ambivalent. He obviously had a machismo upbringing in the traveller community but he's breaking alot of taboos and seems a genuinely nice guy. He got a lot of stick for saying traveller children should go to school as long as they can and get a good education.

    But particularly I thought his bravery in talking about his mental health and suicide must have helped thousands. The best heavyweight in the world talking saying its OK to struggle was unheard of. Dylan whyte disappointed me big time when he said tyson was week and a cry baby for opening up.

    I prefer stylish boxers also and to see a giant dance is always worth watching, compared to so many hug and punch heavyweights. The wilder trilogy will go down in history, it really breathed life into the sport that was struggling.

    Dylan is a good fighter though and it takes one punch in the heavyweight division

    If we’re going to excuse Tyson for some of his misdemeanours due to his upbringing then surely Dillian deserves the same leeway. Basically no education and brought up surrounded by Jamaican gang culture. Stabbed and shot several times as a kid, fathered his first child at 13 etc. both flawed characters with some dubious opinions on certain subject matters but I think they’re both good people at heart.

    I'd excuse them on a lot of the daft things they've said when young as both had hard lives. But this was just last year Dylan was saying tyson was weak mentally and tyson should be keeping that stuff to himself. I just thought it was better to say nothing if he didn't agree, because it could put back some of the good things tyson talking about mental health could achieve.

    I hear you and not disagreeing. Just playing Devil's Advocate I suppose. Both have said some inappropriate and ill-informed stuff over the years, both whilst adults. Tyson has made some pretty unsavoury comments about women, homosexuality, paedophilia etc as well as some anti-sematic rants. He seems to have finally grown up the last couple of years but I suspect that's down to being a bit more savvy rather than not holding the same opinions nowadays.

    To be fair, most sports people are ***** generally I think. I certainly don't admire my sports people by their opinions as that would be grimm ha. I think tyson will have the majority of the fans there as he's pretty huge now. But most that like there boxing will respect both and be looking forward to this. Bookies heavily on tyson, but it should be closer than that

    Morning, I hope you're enjoying your holiday.

    The main event ringwalk is being advertised as 10pm UK time.

    The physical shape and ability of some of the boxers on the undercard is absolutely shambolic. Warren always seems to get away with total mismatches without any credible discussion.

    Shan atmosphere considering the amount of people allegedly there tonight, undercard hasn't really helped build it up though

    Totally agree. It’s been horrendous all round.

    Tyson Fury for me, the man is a natural heavyweight boxer and there are very few of them around. He is a giant of a man.

    Biggest crowd ever in Europe for a boxing match, Fury being paid £23M for this!

    I believe him when he says he’s done.

    Reckon he would fight Joshua at Wembley if that was offered. He would easily beat Joshua though.

    Deserves to go out on a high, can't help but like the guy, built differently to most of the muscle heavyweight division and uses his skill set well

    If AJ wins the rematch v Usyk (unlikely I’d say) then there’s not a chance Fury is retiring.

    Can see him retiring rather than taking on Usyk though.
