I’d break a few of Fury’s ribs first – legendary heavyweight


Heavyweight legend American Riddick Bowe considers Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) to be the strongest current heavyweight in the world.

opinion Bowe, opponents should have built a fight a little differently against a big guy from Britain: “I think Fury is a great fighter. The best of all (acting). But many of his tricks would not have passed into my era. I mean this ragged rhythm of his. What would I do in the place of his rivals? I would lean on the jab first, break through to the inside one, and then break a couple of his ribs. Note that none of his opponents are attacking Fury’s body. It’s like they’re playing by his rules, not trying to break him with power.”

Bow believes that first you need to properly pat the body of a big man: “Work so that his heart or liver starts to fail. Something like this here. It is necessary not to let him loose his belt, it is necessary to force him to act constrainedly. And the problem with his rivals is that they don’t.”

It is possible that the advice of the legend will be followed by the owner of the WBA Super, IBF and WBO belts Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk. His team is trying to negotiate with the WBC champion Fury for a duel for the title of absolute heavyweight – the first in the era of the four belts.

In the same interview, Bow spoke about Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield and the current heavyweights – a comparison that is not in favor of current fighters. Last September, 53-year-old Riddick Bowe wanted to fight the big guy from the NBA. Fortunately, everything worked out.
