What are you talking about? Fury's team getting Klitschko to have his wraps done again is surely a small 'win' for Fury.

I meant that and the ring canvas,take the "team" away to sort it,it's old stuff and has been done before many times,can't see the small win for fury,but who cares now

Gotta say, fair play to Fury, VK threw about four right hands in the first eight rounds and for a fighter who has a left, right and a left hook in his arsenal, just not enough...

Can only throw what the the other boxers allows you,fury wasn't letting him do it,snuffed him out and out bullied the bully

Boxing is all about money at the end of the day. Is there really enough appetite amongst fans to see a rematch after that last night?

Haye/Fury makes more money and probably Wilder/Fury too so I feel they're more likely.  They can pay off Klitschko to step aside if he does indeed want a rematch (and I have my doubts he does).

I'm not so sure, people really underestimate Tyson. Peter fury is a great trainer and very good at making a game plan as last night shows. 

Haye is a big puncher and is able to finish, Cunningham put Tyson on his arse and I think Haye would have finished that fight off had it been him in that position. 

It's still a fight I'd love to see

Would Haye of got near Fury though?? Haye doesn't have the reach of Klitschko who failed to close the distance effectively.

Haye just isn't a proper heavyweight and as long as Fury kept him at arms length then I don't see how he could win.

Fury has said he won't give Haye the opportunity of fighting him now anyway after Haye pulled out of those fights so we may never know.

Money talks, If Haye can regain himself as a contender again sure it will happen. Certainly some great fights in store in Britain with AJ on the scene as well.

He punches aswell as any heavyweight, would he get near enough though to Fury is definatley the question.

It intrigues me, Hopefully Haye will impress in jan to get himself a shot as Money does talk and I reckon this fight could sell out anywhere in England.

To be fair, I'd sooner watch UFC than boxing nowadays.

Boxing is often anti-climatic.

Gone are the good days of Lennox Lewis, Eubank, Prince Naseem etc...

UFC sucks, but each to their own.

The big fights are often anti-climatic to casual fans but rarely to me. Take Mayweather v Pacman, most boxing fans would've told you that fight took place at least 3 years too late and Manny was shot. Couple that with Mayweather's ultra-cautious style and it was always going to be pretty dull. Same with Klitschko v Fury, with all due respect a KO was very unlikely and sure enough it was a poor fight - no way was I gonna pay £17 for it.

Domestically though there's still plenty of good action. Britain currently has 12 world champions so we should be in a 'golden era' of sorts.

You'd have been better off watching DeGale v Bute on Saturday night - DeGale is an exciting boxer with fast hands and will have some big, big fights next year.

Andy Lee v Billie Joe Saunders on 19 December and Quigg v Frampton 27 February will both be entertaining fights I promise you.

Apparently Kell Brook v Timothy Bradley could be on for next year and Adonis Stevenson v Kovalev would be another corker if made.
