    Why is a guy who got wrecked by two bang average fighters and has a pretty meh resume held as some mythical figure by some? Holyfield - past it, Tyson - completely shot, Vitali - behind on the scorecards, won on a cut. Three biggest names on his resume and they all have a huge asterisk next to them. Frank Bruno was pretty much schooling him prior to his glass chin letting him down. Imo Wilder has a pretty good chance to bang him out, Joshua is a 60/40 favourite. Fury beats him for sure.

    Fury beat a 39 year old past it Klitschko, ducked the contractually obligated rematch and beat Wilder who himself only has one good win, dinosaur Ortiz.

    Lennox Lewis beat Golota, Ruddock, Holyfield, Bruno, Mercer and beat Klitschko when he was overweight and 37

    Juan Manuel Marquez.

    Because I became his fan when he schooled Pac 4 times. Simply being smarter and more skilled with high IQ. I can't stand this political Pacquiao meddling in foreign affairs like China Philippines sea issue. He wants a WAR not the brightest spark in the shed.Stick with boxing because irritating as a politician.

    Thata nothing special at all. And let's not make it out like he wasn't losing to Vitali and Bruno before the stoppages.

    Lewis wasn't in his prime for the Bruno fight and was old and out of shape for the Vitali fight. But anyway if these achievements aren't anything special then Fury's achievements aren't anything special

    Naz was entertaining for sure, but like Roy Jones, Naz would have declined fast. He actually was lucky his career ended when it did. The first atttribute to go in elite athletes is your reflexes. Like RJJ, Naz would have started to get KOed very easily by mid range fighters
