H fury is a bad fighter to watch due to how tired ya get watching him run away, I don’t know what it is but it’s as if he lacks the instinct to go forward and fight, like watching paint dry, I don’t think he’s world class but prob do better in the domestic scene as you say, they need him to go on the attack more. Do you think his trainer is at fault for allowing it to happen every fight or is it just hughie himself?

2 of his last 3 defeats over the distance suggest he is world class and just falling short ' maybe even robbed against Parker and at only 24 is still very young and could still win a world title if he sticks at it and is fit ' well and 100% 

ie his skin problem / blood disorder ect is all done and sorted.

He should strengthen up over the next 3-4 yrs and grow into that 6'6" frame.

He still has plenty to offer the division imo

Max, i doubt his skin condition is anything to do with him not being able to throw a good clean power punch, any decent 24 yr old heavyweight should beat povetkin. Hughie is not world class, with more defeats to come.

But he has that punch max, take TF dancing skills away and he wouldn’t even be domestic level.

Its them attributes that make them world class, AJs power, tysons fury movement, Wilders power. 

Lomachenko movement etc.

Is AJ World Class with his punch ?

Or was he just very well marketed ?

I think Hughie would beat Charles Martin tomorrow .

And that's how AJ got hold of his World Titles .

Hughie has been in with some decent fighters for a 24 year old.

As I say IF he keeps at it and lives the game he should strengthen up and improve .

Doesn’t matter how well you market something if it hasn’t something about it it will fail instantly. AJ might only have a punch but he used it to full affect and it carried him a long way just like TF used his skill without having a punch.

I've just got to add this to your post dmd, it's not so much fury's skill, it's just he's very tall and awkward. There's not too much he does right actually, in a proper boxing sense. He's just awkward

Hughie has proved a few times hes not a world level fighter. Just doesnt have that extra go in him when he steps up. Could still make a decent career at domestic/european level

It says a lot about the current crop of heavies when you can argue over whether Hughie Fury is world class or not!

I doubt any of them wouldve been worked class 30 years ago...

For me HF hasn't got what it takes to move up, he should be beating the likes of Povetkin now if that's the case... the likes of Dubois will come quicker and leave HF behind imo

Was going to say something similar but was trying to keep it short. Lol. None of the current crop are the full package and if you take away that single thing that makes them good they all become very average.
