´The Great White Hope´ v ´Gypsy King´
Good matchup. Cooney by decision
Cooney would blast that fuckin chump.
Fury easy, unless he does something stupid
Cooney was in the Top 5 biggest punchers of the late 70s/early 80s and came at you.
Plus he's got height and size.
Cooney by stoppage before Rd6
I'm with JoM here, Fury wins easy unless he gets caught with something silly. Still makes me laugh how criminally underrated his skills are on here, his mobility and footwork are his best assets FFS. People just refuse to acknowledge it.
You need to relax. The guy gets floored by Cuntingham and punches himself in the face.
Fury is complete fucking garbage and the Wald fight did nothing to prove otherwise. The story of that fight was Wald doing NOTHING, not Fury doing something.
What I can assure is, the Wald that fought Fury would not have seen the distance against a prime Cooney.
Fury also dominated several good European level fighters and make them all look bad. People still can't get over his looks, he was actually a very talented fighter.
Cooney was not
Yep. Find me another 6 foot 9 fighter with that kind of footwork and switch-hitting ability. He was very skilled.
True, plus people really should also get over the Jack Mosleyish view where you just 'gotta throw them punches' to win. Usually when a fighter doesn't throw, the other guy has something to do with it
disagreed that Conney wasn't talented.
Cooney had mad punching power and I doubt Fury could have lasted more than three rounds.
Yeah, unless Cooney catches him with something big, he wZ way too basic for Fury an ward style and movement
Fury is underrated and if he stands up to Cooney's power, he wins.
