FOREMAN AND JOSHUA GO FOR FURY, LEWIS AND HOLYFIELD INCLINE TOWARDS WILDER


PhilBoxing.com





Former world heavyweight champion George Foreman is thinking that another controversial decision would result when Tyson Fury faces WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in a rematch this coming Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first match in December 2018 concluded with a controversial twelve round split draw at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

But Foreman is not expecting a knockout. He believes Fury will romp with a twelve round decision win and thinks it will again be controversial. He thinks the match will become one of the biggest heavyweight title fights in boxing history. "The world will be talking about heavyweight boxing after this match," Foreman told Bookies.com.

* * *

Foreman had this prediction on the heavyweight title fight: "It’s going to be good for boxing. I love it. I pick Tyson Fury to win on points. Millions will watch it, and it’ll probably be a controversial decision. That’s not going to be easy [to avoid the right hand]. That Deontay Wilder can punch. Oh, he can hit, and he can hit hard. I think they’re going to tear the wall down there because that rematch will be seen by a lot of people."

* * *

Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis was quoted by Boxing Social that he is inclined towards Wilder. He suggests that Fury should fight a more perfect fight than Wilder. “I think it’s gonna be an unbelievable fight, the boxer against the puncher. Some people are gonna go for the power, some people are gonna go for the boxer and I love those type of fights."

* * *

Lewis did not make exact forecasts of the fight. “Nobody really knows and it really comes down to the crunch, who makes that vital mistake in the fight? Who doesn’t." But he commented that Wilder has the advantage. “No predictions. I would have to say, right now, Deontay's looking good.”

* * *

Anthony Joshua, the WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion, and potential opponent of the winner of Wilder vs. Fury told Pep Talk UK that Fury will dominate this time in the rematch just like what he did in his return bout with Andy Ruiz. “I think Fury wins. I said it. I think the man that nearly done it the first time won’t get it wrong the second time."

* * *

“I think that he came close the first time to the point of a draw, it wasn’t like a 12-round masterclass then got battered in the 12th and that just separated it. It was a draw, it was that close. So I just think Tyson Fury is going to correct his wrongs and come back and win, " Joshua said.

* * *

Evander Holyfield, former lineal cruiserweight and heavyweight champion had this to say over Fight Hub TV: "You would say a 50/50 fight because of course Deontay he’s the one who, at any given time, can throw that right hand and he can knock you out." But Holyfield also countered that Tyson Fury is a clever fighter, "He’s a good fighter, he’s got longer arms and stuff like that. He’s got an awkward style that can make adjustments."

* * *

But the Real Deal thinks that "Wilder at any given time, can get you out with one shot." While for Fury, it’s going to take him a lot of shots to knock his foe out. He could not knockout an opponent with one shot. "So I think it’s going to be a little bit more difficult for him," added Evander.
