Great job from Fury bringing it to Wilder. Not sure what the logic was in throwing in the towel, though. His value hinged on that fight.

I hope there isn’t some sort of brain injury to Wilder. He struggled just to keep his legs underneath him for most of that fight. He’s not right.

He punctured his ear drum and was unable to stay afloat, that seemed clear enough from that.

It's probably a good thing that the fight was stopped if that is true.

Who wanted him to keep fighting on? I was screaming at the corner to stop it in between rounds right before they actually did throw in the towel. Wilder was clearly done and had been done since the first knockdown. Boxing had too many deaths last year (and every year). It doesn’t need to risk another one so we can watch a man incapable of defending himself get his ass kicked for a little while longer.

The above said, Fury is special man. I was wrong about him not being focused and the change of trainer 100% worked - the fight plan was brilliant. Best HW since Lennox for my money.

He could barely stand for 3 rounds, ref looked like he almost called it after the second knockdown. No idea how Wilder stayed in there as long as he did

Yeah Wilder definitely showed massive heart. I think a lot of it was down to fury being, correctly, pretty cautious given how hurt Wilder was. He never really full on went for the stoppage. If he had, he probably would’ve gotten him out of there, but not worth the risk.

Hearn was saying a couple weeks ago that it's unlikely to even be at Wembley.

It seems like the money is just too big elsewhere to do it in the UK, which is sad.

That would be disappointing. You can't see shit at Wembley, but the atmosphere would be absolutely insane

I can't find it now but I read that some are suggesting Tottenham Stadium instead of Wembley.

Yes costume was stupid, no it doesn't cost him the fight. Other guy weighing 50 lbs more than you is kinda a big deal
