No Filter Boxing – Wilder vs Fury Fight

wilder fury fight

This is the best heavyweight fight I have seen in my lifetime. How Fury resurrected after that last round knockdown is anyone’s guess after decimating Wilder with pure boxing for most of the rounds. I think the video below recaptures the spirit of the fight and essence of the aftermath (from a biased Fury perspective) but it isn’t a highlights package by any means.

I remember my old man telling me about seeing Ali and Foreman’s Rumble in the Jungle and Thrilla in Manila live on TV and I have since watched all those fights including the Ali documentary ‘When We Were Kings‘ multiple times. In fact the song from that academy award winning documentary When We Were Kings is in my music library. If you haven’t heard this song put to Ali’s most timeless images then switch off everything you’re doing right now and watch this!

The best middle weight clash I ever saw was recent – Golovkin versus Canelo II. I scored it like the judges – a very slight margin towards Canelo although I’m a big GGG fan. Who would have thought Canelo would come out the aggressor? Both fighters have the strongest chins in the business seemingly made of granite. I hope one day to see number 3.

    This is hard to believe but the last fight I watched from beginning to finish was George Foreman and Michael Moorer when Foreman won the title back….a victory for old guys everywhere lol.
    I have that documentary and I like the song also. I think Ali and Babe Ruth have to be the most known Sports figures around the world ever…both synonymous with their sport…and more.

    • I really like watching the big fights and like baseball I’ve only been following it since moving to Colombia. Being in a similar time zone certainly helps. That Foreman comeback was remarkable. I saw a documentary on it not too long ago.
      Like you I certainly class Ali as one of the greatest sporting figures of the 20th century. He transcended the sport.

        I was on stage at a sports bar and watched the entire fight. We accounced the winner when we started back playing. It was a fun night.
        Ali is/was the king.

  2. Oh oh don’t get me going on this stuff. CB is a fight fan but in recent years it is so hard to find them on the tube. I never even knew this happened. I could keep a closer eye. I fluke out and catch them once in a while. Good stuff.
