Tyson Fury is widely known for having the upmost confidence in his own ability.
However, even the current Lineal title holder needs some reassurance in the heat of the battle.
Fury had started his WBC title fight with Deontay Wilder in fine fashion, surprising all observers in taking the fight to the heavyweight champion, who was expected to dominate.
Since the conclusion of the fight, plenty of headlines have come out of it, but the latest is a decent clip of Fury in his corner at the end of the third round.
An exchange between Fury and his trainer Ben Davison after the third round was caught by the broadcasters, which saw the fighter ask, “I’m boxing well aren’t I?"
In response, Davison said, "you're boxing beautifully," and Fury continued to show no fear and, as everyone who witnessed the fight would say, was incredibly unlucky not to get the decision against the American.
Sometimes with all the words that come out of Fury's mouth, you have to take with a pinch of salt, however, the 30-year-old backed up his claims in the ring.
Admittedly his lead-up form to the blockbuster fight was scratchy at best and quite poor if you are being honest.
However, when the big moment arrived, Fury produced a quality performance.
Although he did not get the ultimate prize, he would have won an awful lot of admirers.
After going through an incredibly turbulent time in the last few years, it is a credit to Fury in the way he has come out of it a much stronger individual.
Fighters are often accused of taking the easy way on their way to the top, but that is not an accusation you can point at Fury.
Taking on Wladimir Klitschko at his fortress in Germany was seen as mission impossible, yet he emphatically defied those odds.
The split decision against Wilder will only add to his legacy once his career is done.
The landscape has changed a great deal after Saturday night and Fury is a big ticket item on the boxing landscape again.
Whether it be a rematch against Wilder or a bout against Anthony Joshua, Fury knows no fear and both men would underestimate him at their peril.News Now - Sport News
