Fury Must Beat Joshua And Usyk To Secure His Legacy – Says Carl Froch

Tyson Fury’s legacy as the greatest heavyweight of his era would be incomplete without victories over Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.

That is according to Carl Froch. Fury has been out of the ring since his victory over Dereck Chisora last year. But prior to that, talks with Joshua over a mega-British fight broke down.

This was then followed up by another offer, a 60-40 split, to fight Joshua in September, which did not result in a bout.

Not only that, but negotiations with Usyk for an undisputed fight at Wembley in April also failed, despite the Ukrainian agreeing to a 70-30 split against him. With that being said, Froch urged Fury to fight the best.

“I can’t give him a massive legacy. He’s fought Deontay Wilder three times, and he nearly got done in the first one which was a draw.

“He nearly got done again in the [third], and it was three great fights against a guy who is not a massive heavyweight.

“He’s a massive puncher but because he’s not that big and heavy, Tyson Fury can keep him out of the way, lean on him and just control the fight, so it’s quite easy for Fury to do what he does because he’s so big.

“If he fights Usyk and he fights Joshua and he makes mincemeat of them then he’ll be the best of a generation,” Froch
