Roy Jones reveals why Tyson Fury is his favorite fighter


The legendary Roy Jones Jr. does not hide the fact that the WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) is now one of his favorites.

The iconic boxer
delighted from the fact that Fury is good not only in the ring: “He’s just an incredible man. He’s already beaten Derek Chisora ​​twice. He had nothing to prove in the third fight with him, but he still decided to offer him a fight to help financially. He did it simply because Chisora ​​is his friend. Friends need help. Isn’t that an act?”

Jones believes that this should be the end of “charity”: “This is boxing. Fans pay hard-earned money for this. So you need to give them what they ask for in return, and not passers-by. So with charity and the help of friends you need to tie. But I’m still delighted with this act. After all, with whom else would Chisora ​​earn the same amount? I think that says a lot about what he’s like outside the ring. And now he is one of my favorite fighters.”

Fans hope that at the beginning of next year, Fury will fight with the owner of the WBA Super, IBF and WBO belts, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, to determine the first absolute heavyweight in the era of four belts.

Yesterday, Usyk compared Chisora ​​in his fight with Chisora ​​in the third fight against Fury. And Tyson’s sparring partner is sure that “the referee will not help the Ukrainian.” Chisora’s ex-coach has no doubt that if anyone can outbox Fury, it’s Usyk.
