Nah, it was always shit boxing. Fury’s opponents have more combined losses than Ebbs Accas. 

I had to re-read that - I thought there was some cannon-fodder tin-can boxer called Ebenezer Accas or something.

To be fair, he is only seven fights deep in his career and is only 22 years old. It's not unusual to see untested young prospects face veterans with lopsided records. For example, we saw George Fox (4-0) go up against Kamil Sokolowski at the weekend on the Arthur/Yarde 2 card.

Sokolowski was a rough and ready 10-24-2 coming into that one!

“Untested young prospect”. Is that code for “Cashing in on the name”. He’s a bum. I was really hoping Paul would starch him.

It generally applies to all young boxers of that age and experience. Take away his name and he's a 22 year old kid in the sport with seven bouts to his name.

But would he be as protected as he is without the name? He may have had 7 fights but I seriously doubt he’d have racked up seven fights against opponents whose records make Sokolowski’s look like Julio Cesar Chavez

He wouldn't be, no. But it's common place for fighters who are more marketable to be more protected. And lets face it, Frank Warren wants Fury to succeed. He has that cross-industry appeal, doesn't he? A combination of looks (although very little charisma) and the surname doesn't hurt. 

If he's still being protected to this extent when he's 15 fights deep into his career then there's questions to be asked, but as-is, it's not all that unusual.

Yeah I get all that and he will make money but I don’t think I’ve seen anyone with such limited ability being protected in such a way. He’s a bum but a bum that keeps the cash registers ringing.

If he's a no-talent bum then he'll be found out soon enough.

His big brother probably came to the realisation as time got closer that the YouTuber was going to smack around, embarrass, humiliate and finish his little brother and decided to get him to pull out and promise to give him the money out his own back pocket to save face, so that he can't have the surname Fury on his record.
