“Of course, such matchmaking is typical of Fury, who by Sunday will have fought five times since returning from the three-year ring absence that comprised his run as heavyweight champion of the world. Wilder is the only noticeable name on the list. And if choosing that time frame strikes you as disingenuous considering the length of Fury’s layoff and his physical and mental state throughout it, feel free to go back further—back to Klitschko, yes, and Derrick Chisora. They’re there, just like Joey Abell, and Christian Hammer, and little Steve Cunningham.”
