Tyson Fury has said he is the greatest heavyweight of his era, without a doubt. Tyson Fury’s declaration as the greatest heavyweight of his era came moments after he won a fight against Deontay wilder.
According to Tyson Fury, he said he can only beat whoever’s in his era and he has done that all his life. His words reads thus:-
“I can only be the best of my day and I’ve done that. I’m the greatest heavyweight of my era, without a doubt. There’s a long, long line of great champions and they go right back to John L Sullivan, Jack Dempsey, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Joe Frazier, the Klitschko brothers, even the guys from today like Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk and everybody else.”
The 33-year-old from Manchester went off as a heavy favourite after outboxing Wilder for nearly the entirety of their first encounter, which ended in a disputed split draw, then scoring a seventh-round knockout in a one-sided rematch. But Fury insisted that the closer third meeting was not a matter of him overlooking his opponent. “It was just a great fight all in all,” he said. “That’s what I’m here for. I wasn’t here to blow someone over in one round. I travelled the world for so many years to find challengers and he gave me a really worthy challenge tonight for sure.”
