British WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) has once again stated that he considers himself the strongest fighter in the history of the heavyweight. And the “Gypsy King” named his most formidable and dangerous opponent.
“Yes, I do believe that I would beat anyone born of a human mother. Born in any era or era –
sold out big guy. – If we are talking about a fair one-on-one fight, then I will beat absolutely everyone. I have never met a person who could beat me. And I won’t see you again.”
Fury pays tribute to former WBC American champion Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs): “He was my most dangerous and formidable opponent. I fought this guy three times. And in each of these fights, everything could have ended differently for me, and at any second. He really has dynamite in his fists. If he hits, it’s a knockout. At best, a knockdown. And regardless of whether he hit in the 1st round or in the 12th.
“The dude has 44 wins, 43 of which he knocked out an opponent. And the only dude who lasted the whole distance (Bermain Stivern) was knocked out by him in the rematch. So this is not an exaggeration. He really knocked out every fighter he fought. All but one. Except me. That is why I consider him the most dangerous and formidable, ”Fury explained his choice.
The champion believes that he was able to compete with Wilder due to his anthropometry and mass: “I think this was the determining factor. It’s one thing to knock out a 192 cm dude who weighs 102 kg. And everything is completely different when a 210-meter uncle who weighs 126 kg comes out against you. Trust me, size matters.
