“The King and the Clown prince"
Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury II.
by Gary Todd
With the date set and both fighters in their respective training camps, and all the promotional wheels in motion for what is being billed as the biggest heavyweight title fight in the history of the sport, Wilder v Fury II is on. The rematch took a lot longer to make than we expected with both fighters taking their own path, particularly Fury, but now the 22nd of February can’t come quick enough.
The first fight was memorable, exciting, and extraordinary and the rematch should prove to be no different. To this day, i still cannot believe how Fury managed to rise from the canvas in the final round after being hammered by Wilder’s two punch combination. When i spoke to Fury later on, i asked him what was going through his mind and where did the strength, the will, and the guts to get up after being down so heavily? Fury said “I don't know really, but god got me up”

WHO'S PROTECTING THE FIGHTERS?
By Clare Burke
Boxing I love it and I hate it. I appreciate it, but I’m also the first one to shout “Stop the fight!” when it becomes an unequal beating rather than a competitive sport or when a fighter has obvious potentially life threatening injuries.
At its best, boxing can be the art of hitting and not getting hit, a ballet with blood and geometry. At its worst, it is fakery, burlesque, cruelty, injustice, exploitation and death. It is the ticket out of slum poverty.
