    That's quite a claim! Is that based on you just being 6ft 9" alone with your current level of boxing ability? No offence, but the average man on the street would get destroyed by most pros.. let alone someone who's challenged at world level.

    Nope he got outboxed and beaten up by John Mcdermott and was on roids during most of his prime years when he should have been knocking people out.

    Not to mention the man is a giant and outweighs most of his opponents.

    There's no excuse why he shouldn't be knocking out his opponents.

    I mean if I landed a clean shot like Fury, and I am not a pro but with a 7 inch reach advantage I dont think it would be hard to land on a pro like Chisora, Fury landed multiple times. I hit pretty hard for my height and size... with another 9 inches I would have tremendous leverage

    Genetics....fury just doesn’t hit hard. It’s one of them things.

    To be considered near the top with very little power is testimate to his other attributes

    Tyson Fury couldn't legitimately knock out a cupcake!

    Why would he want to knock out a cupcake? Make a mess everywhere

    Yeah thats exactly what I am saying - he has weak power for his size.

    I am not impressed with your last statement because again at 6 ft 9 he has ridiculous range to be able to close the power vacuum he suffers from against opponents

    Usyk on the hand is a far better example of not much power, 6 ft 3 and contends with heavyweights because of his skill level and high IQ to suppress his opponents power but land his own in volume

    Here is a better question. Did Tyson Fury ever fight a legit world class fighter who was still in their prime? Wlad was 40 or pushing it. Wilder is a tomato can who likes to fight even worse tomato cans.
