Tyson Fury’s victory over Deontay Wilder in February completed one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history.
The Gypsy King’s journey to becoming the WBC heavyweight champion was filled with ups and downs and seeing him hoist the belt into the air was something special.
But being at the top is completely different to chasing and Fury is now a target for all of the heavyweights that want his belt – and that includes Anthony Joshua.
GIVEMESPORT recently looked at how opponents acted before and after fighting Mike Tyson and, just like with Iron Mike, there have always been boxers eager to bring Fury down.
From Dereck Chisora to Deontay Wilder, he has been involved in many feuds.

YouTube channel Motivedia – Boxing have explored the best of them by taking a look at how opponents acted before and after fighting Fury.
The video features Chisora, Wilder, Wladimir Klitschko, Kevin Johnson and more.
While the video doesn’t feature it, we can’t forget about Wilder’s excuse after losing his WBC belt to Fury.
The American blamed his ring costume, which weighed 40lb, as the reason for his defeat.
“He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is … that my uniform was way too heavy for me,” Wilder told Yahoo Sports.
“I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through.”
It’s still a hilarious excuse.
