Would Fury beat Lewis? The opinion of the legendary Jones


November member International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) and current promoter Barry McGuigan (Cyclone Promotions) was asked about how the British heavyweight battle would have ended – the legendary Lennox Lewis and WBC champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs). He has no doubts about the winner.

The multiple ex-champion Antonio Tarver thinks about the same. Also to this question
answered cult boxer from the USA Roy Jones Jr.: “Lewis would probably beat Fury. But that’s just my guess. Why is that? I think that Tyson would not have been able to compete with the striking power of Lennox. He doesn’t have a one-time knockout punch. Note that Lewis’s Achilles’ heel has never been pure boxers – only fighters with solid knockout power.”

Lewis is the last undisputed world champion in heavyweight history. Fury has a chance to update his compatriot’s record. Rumor has it that at the beginning of next year he will fight with the owner of the remaining belts of the division Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk.

Lennox previously shared his opinion about the match between Usyk and Fury. And Nelson has the answer to all questions. The favorite “wants to knock out Usyk quickly, he can’t take Chisora ​​anymore.”
