Following his draw against Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury is still unbeaten in his professional boxing career.
Saturday’s result took his record to 28 fights, 27 wins and one draw, with many feeling that it should be 28 wins, after claiming that Fury had done enough to beat Wilder on points.
The majority of viewers believed that Fury had edged the bout with the American, but it certainly wasn’t plain sailing for the Gypsy King.
He was knocked down twice by his opponent, the latter of the two coming in the final round after a killer combo from the Bronze Bomber, ending in a brutal left hook that had Fury on the canvas.
However, he somehow rose back to his feet to carry on the fight until the final bell, and he actually looked better than his opponent after that scare.
An amazing video has now been found from 2017, in which Fury explains how to beat him whilst also claiming that, if you don’t knock him out, he will get back up, which is remarkably similar to the actual events on Saturday night.
“It’s easy to beat me,” Fury begins.
“Brendan Ingle said it years ago. He said ‘how to beat Tyson Fury is very easy’ and I’ll say it straight to the camera because I want them to know. The only way to beat me is to nail me to the canvas and if you don’t do that you’ve lost.
“Simple. Very simple, boxing. One shot, out. Failing that, even if you put me down, I’m going to get back up and hurt you even more.”
Whilst Fury didn’t get up and beat Wilder, the video still gives a massive insight into how Fury showed the mental determination to get up from what looked to be a killer blow.
Although Fury claims it’s an easy task, no man has yet to defeat him in his professional career, although Wilder most certainly came the closest.
Should these two meet again, if there is to be a victor, it will be far from easy.
