Muhammad Ali’s grandson: Fury is my idol, he is in the top 5 heavyweights in history


Nico Ali Walsh (4-0, 3 KOs), an American middleweight who is the grandson of the legendary Muhammad Ali, shared with
Sky Sports an opinion on what place the current WBC world heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) occupies in the ranking of the best heavyweights in history.

“Tyson Fury is one of my idols and I really think he ranks among the greatest heavyweights of all time. I think he’s in the top 5 in history,” Niko said. – I will not say that he is number one, no one can surpass my grandfather. Well, yes, I’m biased in saying that. I don’t think anyone can beat my grandfather from the past, present and future. But Tyson Fury is Tyson Fury, he speaks for himself.”

Recall that on April 23, Fury successfully defended the title by knocking out compatriot Dillian Whyte. Immediately after the fight, he, as promised, announced his retirement from boxing. However, neither Hatton nor Hearn believe him.
