Lennox Lewis says Tyson Fury would have given him the most trouble in the ring

Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko Weigh-in

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has had his say on who out of Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury would have given him the toughest fight, in their primes of course.

All three boxers are some of the highest profile names in the sport today and which one would offer him the sternest test the Olympic gold medalist Lewis believes the Gypsy King himself, Tyson Fury would offer the best fight.

Lewis thinks it would be a thrilling matchup but still thinks he would have just enough to beat him.

Tyson Fury made quite the comeback to boxing in 2018 following his long lay-off out due to a lengthy doping ban and mental health problems.

The 30-year-old has made an immediate rise back to stardom, highlighted by a controversial draw with American superstar Wilder.

Lewis has taken note and likes what he sees from the awe-inspiring Gypsy King, but claims he would have the slight edge over his fellow Englishmen if they were to go head to head during their primes.

"I think Tyson Fury would've given me some trouble because he's so big. He's a bit lanky," he told TMZ.

"I would break him down probably by the 10th round, I would break him down. But, he would give me some problems."

Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury: Weigh-in

Fury may have the undefeated professional record to his name, but that does not take away from the 41 wins in 44 fights in Lewis' career, which 32 of them came from KO.

From a fan perspective, it is always sad that events like these can never play out, but we can only imagine the absolute spectacle such a fight would give us.

For now, we wait for Tyson Fury and co. to go up against one another in the near future but the frustrating nature of talks between the trio so far would suggest we might be waiting a while.
