I'm going for a surprise Usyk win by knock-out.

We were about 10 seconds from this happening. Really glad I had a good stream for this. Quality fight to watch and I think the decision was just about right. Not sure about Fury saying the war influenced the decision. I'm not a fan of the Fury family but I can't deny his talent.

After watching the fight, I thought a split decision in favour of Fury was most likely, although I personally thought Fury was too happy to sit behind his reach advantage and Usyk did far more to try to win.

Looking forward to the rematch and I think Fury has it in him to win with a bit more invention, but wow, what an incredible boxer Usyk is.

Usyk by 3 for me. Just got stronger and stronger as the fight went on and if it were not for the magnitude of the occasion I think the ref would have stopped it at the end of the 9th.

Incredible figjt between 2 brilliant boxers with the correct winner in the end. Fury trying to claim Usyk was benefitiing from a sympathy vote made him look a tad pathetic though

Usyk is some fighter. Fury very fortunate to be saved by the ropes, the ref and then the bell.

To be fair, he did well to stay up when you see how many shots he took.

Thanks for the stream, by the way 🙂

He is good at looking a tit (outside of his boxing ability). I don't agree at all that it was a Usyk by 3 fight though. Just the one for me, at a push 2.

I think Usyk was pretty dominant from the 8th round on. I had him winning everyone of those rounds with a 10-8 9th. I had Usyk winning the first two rounds and Fury winning rounds 3 to 7

Fair enough, I didn't quite see it that way. Guess that's why you need 3 judges!

Theres a few rounds which could be scored differently based on which style a judge likes.

I didn't have it as wide as three rounds either, but I don't think Fury can have any complaints.

I was worried they were going to give it Fury on the scorecards but thankfully sense prevailed. Not sure what to make of the ref jumping in to stop Usyk hitting him again when still on his feet and it not being the end of the fight. Surely he could have stepped in at any point while he was dreamwalking around the ring and thus not conveniently got Fury to the bell and a chance to recover. Did bloody well to do so though, fair play to him.

Usyk is a very very classy operator. Fury spent much of the night giving Usyk every reason to want to smack him.

The guardian round by round had it by 5 for Usyk which is excessive. 2 to 3 points is about right

Yeah, I'm unsure about the ref jumping in there as well but the comms didn't really bring it up. I guess safety, but that fight is over if he doesn't step in.
