    I think he would. Fury has yet to lose a fight, and if he beats the AJ v Usyk winner he would have dethroned three reigning champs.

    This!

    Fury's resume is more or less a bizarrely out of sorts Wlad (in one of the worst heavyweight title fights i've ever seen!) plus the 3 fairly low-quality affairs against Wilder.

    After that Fury's resume takes a drop off a precipice - Whyte - especially after that humbling KO of the year from Sasha really ain't cutting it against the likes of Mercer, Vitali, Tyson and Evander.

    i belief this.

    some of the names ("Shannon Briggs ' ' & ' Tommy Morrison "" ] people say.
    these were crude puncher lesser fighters to Wilder for certains.

    "Crude Puncher" is more or less the definition of Wilder is it not? Without that righthand would he even be a titlist?

    Funny how people call out Lewis opposition for being past their prime yet the best person fury has faced by far was 40 years old before he then went on to serve a ped suspension.

    "I belief?" Learn how to type before you try to type words.

    No.His career would still be marred with too much inactivity,inconsistency,and drug and ped usage to put a legitimate claim up against Lewis.would still be a great achievement to beat the Usyk v AJ nonetheless.

    If you discount old guys, Fury's resume shrinks to Wilder once . Chisora twice and Whyte.

    If you build it , they will come !
    Only been a few days or so, since the last ( and seemingly never ending ) debate as where Lewis should be placed in the pantheon of HW champs, pretty sure he has now eclipsed Marciano in that thread, lovely dialogue in the Alamo just before the final onslaught, the defenders are talking about what happens , and where do we go after this life.
    " reckon ole peter will slam them pearly gates right in my face "
    other guy " pearly gates !! there ain't no pearly gates, when your dead your food for the worms "
    still another guy " I believe, I believe in the here after, in God , in heaven, but I can never find a way to argue down yous who don't believe "
    Sounds very similar to the Lewis dilemma, to some he is top 3, to others not in the top 10, and neither side is backing down !
    stay safe guys.
