Default Why/how does Tyson Fury have such a reach advantage over other tall heavyweights??

Was just re-watching the coverage vs Maddalone

And Fury's arms looked PREPOSTEROUSLY long

There is at best an inch between Fury & Price in height.

Thank goodness

But there seems the best part of an entire foot in reach in Fury's favour!

How, genetically does this actually happpen??

The fact that his arms are so long should make upper cutting himself harder to do, I would have thought.

It has nothing to do with genetics. Tyson worked in the taffy-pulling industry throughout his mid-teens.

Nah, Tyson will finish his career a 50-10 legend, having been on the fringes on world glory and never quite getting there, but having some humdingers along the way. He's a scrapper, born and bred.

Boystov is 6"1- I can see Fury taking it relatively easy in the first few rounds boxing at range. Boystov needs to get him out of there early as Fury is surprisingly resilient when it comes to stamina. Could be a great fight but likely will be pish.
