    Default Wilder v Fury 2 - Las Vegas

    Loads of rumours flying around that the rematch is close to being signed and Vegas is the place with the fight likely to be April or May.

    "We're trying to make that fight at the moment, everyone wants the fight and most importantly the fighters want it," he (Warren) told ESPN.

    "The venue is looking like the U.S., that's where the money is. Tyson was disappointed with the judging with the last fight, as I was, so a lot of things need to be sorted but the U.S. is where they want it, probably in the second quarter.

    "Vegas would be one of the options. I wouldn't want to go back to California, I didn't like working with the Californian commission and there were a lot of things we didn't like there.

    Compatriot Anthony Joshua is the undefeated holder of the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts and a unification bout with Wilder would be a blockbuster draw.

    Warren indicated that Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn was in no hurry for that to happen, however.

    “We’re not complicated, Tyson is the most uncomplicated person you will meet, and he will fight anyone. He went to Germany to fight Wladimir Klitschko and he went to America to fight Wilder.

    “It’s Barry and Eddie Hearn’s agenda that complicates it. Joshua is their cash cow and they want to keep milking it,” he said of the prospects of a Fury-Joshua fight.

    Now that Fury is enjoying training and taking it/ himself seriously, he’s beginning to grow on me. I really hope he beats Wilder and think that if he stays focussed he will!
    How absolutely nuts is it that if he beats Wilder, the Fury/AJ Fight could financially be the biggest HW Fight of all time and maybe the biggest fight of all time (maybe 2nd biggest.)

    I think a rematch is a good idea. I'd like to see what adjustments each can bring into it.

    Indeed, both can make adjustments, Tysons body can recover from all that weight loss, ring rust shaken off.
    Wilder knows more about himself in a 12 round fight and can come up with counters to what Tyson does.

    Tyson can make better adjustments and soak up punishment, does that seem fair? If so, I'm wondering if he'll actually take Wilder out this time.

    I do agree with what Freddie Roach said which is that Fury needs to be more agressive and stay on Wilder for longer periods when he backs him up.
    Fury lacks that real KO power though so it remains to be seen if he can actually put Wilder on his ass.

    Bodywork. Hooks. Nobody is immune to repeated well placed punches from a lump like Fury, even if he doesnt have one shot power. Use Hatton while he is as part of the team. Drop Wilder with a liver shot and things get very interesting.

    I think AJ v Fury will not be made because the two camps hate each other too much and will prevent the fight from happening.

    More bodywork.... staying closer to Wilder. All sound like good strategies for Fury to take into the ring against Wilder. He'll certainly come up with something to avoid the bombs like the one that almost put him out in the last round of their first fight. Unfortunately, those strategies might work toward making the fight a bit duller than the first one. I'd hate to see a repeat of Fury-Wlad, or a hugfest with Fury draping his bigger body on Wilder and smothering him for 12 rounds. I thought their first fight was excellent and, coupled with the AJ-Wlad fight, it breathed some much needed life back into the heavyweight division.

    Now.... what adjustments specifically is Wilder going to make? The guy might have a bad rap for being a lousy boxer, but he must surely be able to make adjustments to deal with Fury a second time around. As opposed to most on here, I thought Wilder acquitted himself fairly well in the first half of the fight. He made Fury miss many of his jabs, while himself throwing some good jabs. It wasn't the 12-round Fury dominance a few here thought it was. So I'd build off that. In the second half of the fight Fury clearly dominated. Wilder seemed to tire a bit..... I'd look at that. Stamina is more of an issue for Wilder than the weight itself. A few pounds north or south aren't going to make much difference in terms of Wilder's punching power. He needs to train appropriately so as to not gas toward the end, especially if Fury decides to stay close and use his bigger body. Also, it may be trying to teach an old dog new tricks but... I'd work a bit on Wilder's footwork. If Fury does decide to use his body weight advantage, Wilder would be well served to try and spin off Fury and get better angles to shoot his lethal right hand.

    Anyway, I'm glad they're close to making the rematch happen, and even happier it'll be in Vegas. No other Stateside venue is worthy of Wilder-Fury II.

    I can see Fury getting banged out this time, Wilder knows he can hurt him anytime and so does Fury, if Fury did come out more agressive i think that suits Wilder more, be interesting to see if Wilder has a plan B instead of just punching thin air all night.
    So many many ways this can pan out and this rematch will be huge globally doing big numbers.
    Brilliant clash of styles.

    I'm not a fan of the WBC, but good on them for ordering the rematch. Joshua can sit and wait for the rematch along with everyone else.

    The deck will be stacked against Tyson Fury in Las Vegas, and even more so since he showed in the last fight he's much better than Wilder.

    Las Vegas is notorious from dodgy referees who protect American boxers and permit them to foul (Weeks, Bayliss, Cortez) and corrupt judges (the three who worked Kovalev-Ward I).

    I'm not. A rematch that huge needs a huge venue. Nothing bigger in the U.S. than Vegas. Relax guys..... it's not Canelo fighting, so we should be ok. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think Fury will get a fair shake. All he needs to do is totally dominate the fight, and he's home free. Contrary to popular opinion, he only won a little over half the fight last time out, all of which was negated by the two 10-8 rounds he suffered.
