Mike Tyson named the best heavyweight in the world


Heavyweight legend American Mike Tyson has no doubt that the best current heavyweight in the world is the owner of the WBC belt Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs).

According to the cult champion, “There is no doubt about it. He is the best, that’s 100%. And he proves it over and over again. How else? He simply could not help but be the best, because he was named after me. He could only be the greatest of all time.”

Meanwhile, Fury is negotiating with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk – the fighters want to determine the first absolute heavyweight champion in the era of four belts in a head-to-head fight. The negotiations are going hard. The fight is tentatively scheduled for April 29 at Wembley Stadium (London, England).

Which of them will win if the parties still close the deal? Carl Froch is sure that there will be a knockout, and Tony Bellew spoke even more confidently about the victory of the Ukrainian.
