    No,.

    Not close.

    But if he were to beat AJ next, he would cement a claim to being the greatest HW of his era.

    In fact, if Hearn gets in the way of that fight and Fury never fights again, he could make the claim without the AJ scalp.

    I think he beats all 4 and probably easily. Aj has a weak chin and isnt going to outbox Fury and likely wont be able to knock him out either. Usyk doesn't have enough pop in his punches and is at a severe height, weight and reach disadvantage. Same for Ruiz who has already proven he lacks the discipline to get in shape for a big fight. Even after Ruiz beat Aj I and many said Fury is just a style nightmare for him. Martin is just a joke lol

    Fury has alredy stuffed Klitschko and Wilder, Joshua would get the same. He is a limited robot similar to Wlad but not even as good prime for prime.

    His accomplishments are inferior to Joshua, I'm afraid.

    Seriously? What has Joshua done that comes even close to what Fury just did? I get he has more quality names on his resume, but losing to Ruiz has to offset some of those wins.

    If you look at their combined best opponents, they are mostly Joshua opposition. And he has fared better in totality.

    H2H Tyson Furyt is definitely the GOAT nobody from the past beats Tyson Fury, at 6'09" & his ability to recover from any punch.

    He will take away range from all the past Heavyweights, Wlad a range-boxer looked short of inches the whole fight, heavier Deontay Wilder will also do worse vs Tyson Fury because he losses Stamina & gains nothing from excess weight, except the ability to absorb more punishment on the expense of speed/stamina (not exactly a good trade)

    An energetic 210s lbs Deontay Wilder is the only threat to Tyson Fury, giving up lots of weight to achieve the speed/stamina needed to deliver the range abbreviating KO power punch.

    Oh please......Wilder has just been exposed for being the over protected hype job that anyone with half a brain new he always was. Wilder is a massively flawed one trick pony who's best win is Luis Ortiz. Let that sink in for one moment. Then go back and have a look at who Lewis defeated.

    Fury's win over Wlad is more impressive for me as Wlad was more dominant and beat pretty much everyone relevant in his era. Wilder has a win over 2 genuine top 10 opponents and that's it. Fury defeating Joshua in similar fashion should Joshua get past Pulev and Usyk would again be a far more impressive win than beating Wilder as Joshua has a much deeper resume and been a unified, two time champion.

    Wilder isn't a good enough opponent to validate that claim. He's a technically limited power puncher with a sub 90 ring IQ.
