Tyson Fury destroying the entire heavyweight division, including Wilder, Joshua & Whyte


Tyson Fury registered the 31st win of his professional career by defeating Deontay Wilder via knockout during the weekend, but it's not just his work in the ring that was applauded recently.

The Gypsy King has established himself as one of the best heavyweight boxers of all time, and apart from his fighting style, he is also very well known for how he calls out his opponents.

A video over the weekend was posted by talkSPORT's Michael Benson and it rapidly went viral, accumulating over one million views and being retweeted an impressive 3.5k times.

It's easy to see why it racked up so many views in such a short space of time as it was a compilation of the Gypsy King calling out the majority of the heavyweight division over the last few years.

In the video, Fury calls out Anthony Joshua, the Klitschko brothers, Tony Bellew, Dillian Whyte and Wilder, among others.

It's quite a hilarious compilation that will have boxing fans in splits.

After defeating Wilder, Fury called himself the best heavyweight of his time, saying: “I can only beat whoever’s in my era and I’ve done that all my life. I can only be the best of my day and I’ve done that. I’m the greatest heavyweight of my era, without a doubt.

"There’s a long, long line of [great champions] and they go right back to John L Sullivan, Jack Dempsey, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Joe Frazier, the Klitschko brothers, even the guys from today like Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk and everybody else.

"They’re all good champions, but without sounding too sharp and clever, I’d place myself right on top of the pile. I believe that I could beat anyone in history. Any man born, I believe I’ve got a really good chance of beating him."



Fury has certainly established himself as the best of his era, and right now, it's hard to imagine anybody being able to defeat him. The other heavyweight champion, though, a certain Oleksandr Usyk, may have something to say about that.

For now, though, it seems like the Gypsy King's next fight will be against mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte.
