    Just hours to go, before the biggest fight in decades. What we thinking?

    Very hard to predict as I think Fury lost against Ngannou but was given the win, and I think Usyk should have lost against Dubois but for the body shot being given as a low blow.
    Both with a lot to prove of their last performances and Fury looks to be in the shape of his life.
    I’m going draw. At 12/1.

    Usyk points. Possibly even stoppage late

    Usyk KO. Fury's cut to open early doors

    Genuinely no idea which way. I think if it goes the distance though, it goes Usyk.

    For the first time ever, I’ve seen Fury come up against someone he can’t get to. If anything I’d say Fury looks the most intimidated.

    The result will depend on how much money they can generate in the future. Like most sports involving money fixing is present.

    I used to love Fury, his 'redemption' arc, so to speak, beating depression, quitting drinking, getting back in shape, loved it. But this past 18 months, probably largely due to his father as well, I've properly gone off him. Cant stand the bloke now.

    Usually, as most folk, id always support the British fighter. But im certainly supporting Usyk this time.

    I really hope so. Ridiculous bloke, made worse by his even more ridiculous family egging him on. Would love to see Usyk take him apart.

    Furyk? Is that like a hybrid ultimate fighter? Imagine that! :)

    I want Fury to win but I'm dubious. It's a unification bout and if there's anything the money men don't want it's an undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World.

    Why have TV rights to one fight when if the match is a draw you'll get a rematch plus a couple of title defences (one for each fighter before the rematch).

    In an ideal world for promoters it will be a draw and both fighters lose their next fight.

    Fury win. Uyak is class, but i think fury is too big. Usyk doesnt knock many heavyweights out being a natural cruiserweight. I maybe wrong

    I’d like to see Usyk knock him out but I’ve a feeling Fury will have a bit too much for him.

    I want to see Usyk win. I used to really dislike Fury. Then he seemed to redeem himself, then turned back into a bit of kn0b. And John Fury is an absolute embarrassment.

    Fury will lean on and use his size to wear Usyk down for the later rounds. Watch for Fury hitting as they part from a clinch. Usyk needs to get close but that plays to Furys strengths so Fury on points for me...possibly controversial split decision to line up the next money making fight..

    I hope the fight goes ahead (you never know, do you?) and that there is no opening of cuts, no underhand tactics or feigning injury, no shady scoring and that we are treated to a spectacle deserving of the undisputed title.

    I obviously want my man to win. But I genuinely can’t call it. He was underdog against Wlad all those years ago. Underdog against Wilder. But I fancied him. Tonight, he’s up against someone much better than those two. A genuine great, a generational talent and in my eyes, an opponent that should be all wrong for him. He’s already soundly beaten the great AJ. Twice.

    But I’ll go with my heart and go… the big GK with a big KO. Between rounds 7 and 10.

    And then a rewriting of the narrative will occur as per, where Usyk was ‘never any good’.
