Watching in the Goose in Selly Oak and it is ridiculois the amount of people here.

Atmosphere is horrible to be honest, full of c***s. Wish I'd just stayed in.

Fury has been utterly brilliant, Wilder utterly exposed for the average skill set he has.

Fury beats AJ easily on this showing.

Demolition job. Will say I think the stoppage was a bit weird as Wilder looked in more trouble a few times before, but was only a matter of time anyway.

Corner wanted it stopped, Wilder was done.

Sensational from the Gypsy King, battered Wilder every round.

The stats say that Wilder only landed 18 punches in the fight compared to 55 from Fury.

I agree. Joshua I think is an infinitely better boxer than Wilder (who was badly exposed), but Fury is clearly at a different level.

I don't think Joshua is a better boxer than Wilder though, not really.

Can't remember seeing a better display from a British heavyweight, Fury was absolutely brilliant from the first bell to the end. Love to see a Fury Joshua fight, hopefully sometime this year.

On the evidence of last night and Joshua's clever performance in the Ruiz rematch i'd say he is streets ahead.

Wilder looks distinctly mediocre and talks of a 3rd fight between him and Fury are a bit disappointing. Yes they will make a lot of money from it, but Fury will just humiliate him again.

Just got round to watching it.  His corner shouldn't have let him come out for the 7th, as he could hardly lift himself off his stool. 

Great win for Fury, but Wilder did not look at all right from the early stages.  Looked sluggish and like he was struggling with his balance.

Agree, why would anyone consider a 3rd fight?
Fury has beaten him, by a considerable margin, twice, albeit robbed in the first.
Got to be a unification fight next
