This is long, about 40 min. It is also one of the best boxing documentaries on one of the best fights I’ve ever seen. Certainly the greatest upset since Buster Douglas beat Mike Tyson. Speaking of Tyson, he does commentary on this fight and is brilliant. He’s looking good as he ages, too. Evander Holyfield, Sylvester Stallone and some other famous people also do commentary. Really an interesting documentary.
By the way, the rematch for this fight happens on Saturday.
Yes. I saw that. Ruiz weighed 268 lbs in the 1st fight. He thought that was a little heavy. He now weighs 283 lbs. I haven’t watched the documentary yet, but I like them both. Which is unusual I guess.
I looked up to see what weight class Wilder and Fury are in. I think they are in the same. A little confusing but Fury weighs 257 and Wilder weighs 213. Their matchup might be coming up soon. I like them both, too. Wilder is considered the most devastating puncher since Tyson and some say the most devastating ever. I’m not sure. If they ever fought each other in their prime, I don’t think it would have lasted long. Wilder did prove he can take hits pretty well in the last fight. Probably better than Tyson did. I don’t know how you can connect against either of them, knowing being off balance for a second, could leave you braindead.
I just watched Tyson Fury destroy Deontay Wilder in their rematch. It was one of the richest heavyweight fights in history. It was also one of the weirdest fights I’ve seen. Fury connected with Wilders ear, rupturing his ear drum and blood started pouring out of Wilder’s ear. Fury then started to LICK the blood on Wilder. Beyond disgusting. He had said verbatim before the fight that he wanted to taste blood this fight. He did.
233 and 273 on the weights
For this fight yea. Not the 1st fight.
I saw some of the highlights. Didn’t look close. Wilder was probably just used to bullying everyone. Fury was 40 lbs heavier. Could you imagine how tiring it is when he grabs on to you and just leans you back into the ropes?
I just can’t get over Fury licking the other guy’s blood. Effing disgusting. Now that I think of it, I seem to recall Daniel talking about drinking blood for sexual pleasure. He’s German though. Those Europeans are deviants. Then again Fury is British so maybe that explains it.
He’s an interesting guy. Used to be an anti-semite I believe. Then he tried to kill himself. I 100% believe he is reborn. He’s obviously still nuts but I’ll focus on the good. He donates a ton to charity. Probably a higher % than any other athlete.
He obviously has good traits, and I am almost always one to cheer for the guy who came from nothing to achieve success. Licking blood though…god…disgusting.
It’s tyson like.
Yes, although Tyson gets a pass from me. He was always a savage. You can’t complain when you pay someone to be a savage and then they are. Fury plays the Christian gentleman who leads his team in prayer before every fight.
Clarissa Shields is the name that come to mind when people mention boxing now. Finally taking more interest in women’s boxing, but mostly just the training and interviews and not the violence.
She looks deceptively lighter especially in her robe but here you see her body at 168 and she is quite the big girl. She looks good at 168, just optimal. I don’ think I can be any more proportionate male at that weight with bodyfat ratio and measurements.
