Predictions from all the fans of boxing..... Fury or Usyk?

As a Brit I should want Fury but my heart wants Usyk. Classier man.

I think Fury will win, by round 5.

I honestly couldn't name you any heavyweight champions of the past 20 years or so. Is it just me or does it seem like boxing isn't as popular as it was back in the 90's and earlier? Even as a very casual fan back then I knew who George Foreman, Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield were.

I would tell you that the media seems to be completely ignoring boxing and maybe they do but in reality it is I who am ignoring media. I don’t watch much television anymore I only have free over the air reception and hardly visit any wepages presumably reporting the “news”.

The fights are on pay-tv requiring cable or dedicated apps that want to sell you a subscription. If the fight is in the middle of the night my timezone I wouldn’t bother anyway but generally I don’t have time for that anymore. Not even for my erstwhile favourite sports.

I am getting old.
