Fury Compares Comeback To Ali And Mayweather
With a week remaining until his return to the ring, Tyson Fury believes that he is the greatest heavyweight, not just currently, but of all time.
He said: “I am the greatest heavyweight of all time. I’ve not got to be modest. I am the best ever. Me, Tyson Fury, the Gypsy King, the one and only.
“When has there ever been somebody like me? There have been plenty of come-forward aggressors, there have been plenty of boxers off the back foot, but when has there ever been a 6ft 9in switch-hitter with the confidence of Muhammad Ali and Floyd Mayweather rolled into one?
Fury told the the Telegraph that he is the greatest of his era, and claimed that his upset win over Wladimir Klitschko fight was “easy.”
“What more could I have? I’m a fighter, I’m a boxer, I’m a sportsman, I’m a showman. “I am the greatest of my time,” said Fury. “This is my era, I have already beaten the lineal champion, I’ve already beaten the legendary champion Wladimir Klitschko, and guess what, I did it easily. It was an easy fight.
“I’ve got a massive opportunity to go down as one of the best heavyweights of all time. I have the dance partners to achieve that in Wilder, Joshua and whoever else.
“A title shot is 100 percent possible this year. Don’t be surprised if I take over the world this year and win a world title back.”
