Wow he was looking slim and still came in at 260? This reminds me a bit of Chris Byrd v Klitschko. Remember that one?

These guys have a ton of skill. Can’t remember seeing two heavyweights that could move and box like this.

Don’t think the ref should’ve called the fight, but calling that knockdown at that point might’ve cost Usyk the ko.

10-8 round likely the difference in the fight. Rematch either way, and deservedly so. Wonder if Tyson comes in heavier.

Fury is one of my favorite fighters of all time, but impossible not to be happy for Usyk, who deserved the win. Great week for Ukrainian fights. Crazy both these guys were in the war last year.

Usyk has to be considered an all time great now. Came up from cruiserweight and beat two giants in Fury and Joshua. I didn’t think we’d ever see another heavyweight champ under 6’4.

Edit - don’t like that comment from Fury about Usyk getting the decision because of the war.

Opposite to Marciano, fury is top 5 least favorite fighters ever for me. Always been an unprofessional piece of shit.

All the credit to Usyk. I don't think there's any doubt he's a goat. What a performance/career. All timer.

Wilder/Zhang is tomorrow night. At the weigh-in, Wilder came in at 214.6 lbs. Zhang weighed in at.... 282.8 lbs.

For reference, there was roughly a 40 lb difference between Wilder and Fury in each of their fights. And apparently this is relatively svelte for Zhang, who has weighed in at like 291 in his previous fight. I didn't realize how huge this guy is.

Is there a reason why the heavy weights don't put more muscle on their legs? I get it for the lower weight classes, where keeping weight down matters. But for the big boys, with no weight limits, I'd have thought it would be helpful to have a stronger base? Anyways, au revoir, Bronze Bomber.

The NY commission changed haney garcia into a no contest and suspended garcia.

Haney then proceeded to celebrate returning to become an undefeated fighter...and it has not gone over well with the internet.
