RINGSIDE NOTES

Boxing News - - ACTION -

FURY in­sisted he was go­ing to knock out Wilder and his choice of gloves – the puncher’s Ever­last MX – proved that. He of­ten pressed down on his knuck­les sev­eral times dur­ing the bout, to en­sure his fists car­ried op­ti­mum weight. HEAVY­WEIGHT le­gends Len­nox Lewis, Evan­der Holy­field, Rid­dick Bowe, Buster Dou­glas, Gerry Cooney, Michael Spinks and Earnie Shavers were all in at­ten­dance. FURY cut a con­fi­dent fig­ure all week. Not least when he en­tered the arena on fight night in a white and red flow­ered shirt, pink jacket, an­kle-bit­ing ma­roon slacks and – the ic­ing on the cake – some snake­skin loafers.
