    My opinion is that Tyson fury has two good wins. A forty year old Wlad and Deontay Wilder... who is the living embodiment of a fight night video game character that spent all his exp points on the straight right and couldn’t box. That being said it still took Fury two fights to figure out how to destroy Wilder.

    Bowe, Vitali, Lennox and Larry Holmes are by no means easily dispatched and are fights I see him losing.

    He wins some close matches against a few others in their prime like Foreman and easily destroys the rest.

    Hard to tell. His resume is pretty limited. Not enough good fighters at HW to really judge him in an all time sense. But if he fights like vs Wlad or Wilder I, he could give anyone trouble. How many HW's fight like that and are that tall with freakish reach? If he's content with winning a boring points decision by pot shotting, it's going to make it very tough to beat him.

    Hard to tell as we havent seen post retirement Fury against one of better and more proven fighters in the divison.

    Pre retirement Fury that beat Wlad and Chisora in the second fight would fair much better.

    Nandrolone Fury was floored by a cruiserweight and went 12 rounds with Wallin. Yet he beats all these guys easily??? Hahahhaahahahhahahhahah

    People say that Fury's resume is limited and Tyson's is good. Funny stuff.

    Tyson's best wins are Spinks (haha), Bruno and out of retirement ghost of Holmes. Plus, he has a bunch of losses - James Douglas (come on), past his prime Holyfield x 2 and then a few as the ghost of Tyson.

    Fury's top 3 wins against Klitschko and Wilder x 2 are far more impressive. Tyson's thug-like personality, speaking to women like they are pieces of **** etc. and all action for 5 rounds style makes him better than he really is to a lot of people.

    Tyson '2 fast' Fury is significantly better. Just because Tyson beat up a bunch of average Joe's which would apparently rip it up in this era according to old timers doesn't make him better. Carl Williams, Tony Tubbs, Tony Tucker, Trevor Berbick... Please. Then we have the blokes out of witness protection, Clifford Ettiene, Peter McNeeley, Julius Francis, Lou Savarese.

    People talk about Nandralone Fury... Let me break it to you - all top level athletes are on hot sauce. Anti-doping governance is ineffective. Mike Tyson has been on hot sauce since he was old enough to walk and he's still on it now!

    Idk man furys top wins wilder and klitschko, both of them have almost no inside game and dont apply pressure. Bowe was decent on the outside and top tier in the pocket and he was very aggressive too. The tools Bowe posses could definitely trouble fury

    Lewis, Foreman, Holmes (with his speed and movement) hard for fury
    V Klitschko would give him a very hard fight.
    Even Cooney is dangerous for fury.

    Basically hard punchers with length and toughness.

    We will never know will we because he will not fight any of them except AJ. And that's only if he is paid half a billion hahahha. Ran from Whyte. Ran from (or was banned, take your pick) the Klitschko rematch. Has a ready-made excuse as to why he cannot fight most of the top boxers right now but will gladly fight Wallin, Sefari, Swcharz and the rest. And was about to fight Kabayel before the rematch clause stopped it. The whole point is to prove you are the best in the ring, not by saying you are the best. But this fraud/con man has you all fooled into believing he is the best based off one win. Pathetic
