    Hearn has stated Tyson Fury team have contacted Chisora about arranging a fight in Decemeber.

    Seems Fury doesn't want the Usyk vs AJ 2 winner.

    I see.

    But that wasn't the cut that encouraged Klitschkos corner to stop the fight. The punch Lewis landed in round 3 made a cut on the eyebrow. Klitschko ended up with 4 different cuts by the end of the 5th and the doctor stopped the fight when he saw Klitschkos eyelid was hanging off and impairing his vision.

    I got to go with Quality over Quantity in this one. Lewis>Fury.

    Yes, all stemming from the initial gash.

    Lennox Lewis was one of the (if not the) most talented Heavyweights ever.
    He beat everyone he ever faced. And had the guts to avenge his two losses.
    Wlad didn't have the Cahones to do that.
    He beat Vitali, Wlad would have been a quick KO and Bowe ducked him because
    he would have KO'd him too. He fought Mike and Evander as soon as he could get them.
    Best record since Marciano.

    I don't like all these what iffs

    If Fury is gonna cement a legacy, then he needs to get of his sofa and stop eating gummy bears and get serious. And fight Usyk, or AJ if he wins.

    Fury is a lazy bstd

    Idk maybe. Surpassing Lennox is an colossal feat and it will very difficult for any fighter to do. Personally I have Lennox ranked as the third best heavyweight of all time just being Ali and Louis.

    Fury is a great fighter but in comparison to the resume of Lennox, he is years away from even being considered a top 15 heavy let alone a lock for the top 10 (or even higher) as is Lennox. Even with Usyk AND Joshua AND a few younger challengers on his resume, it's still a stretch for him to surpass Lewis.

    Lewis beat a heap of (at the time) current, former or future world/lineal champs - Holyfield, Tyson, Vitali, Mercer, McCall, Morrison, Rahman, Briggs, Grant, Botha, Bruno, Tucker, Weaver, Akiwande not to mention some extremely solid contenders in Ruddock, Golota and Tua. Sure he lost twice (by KO) but that's the nature of HW division.

    Who has Fury beat? Wlad and Deontay. Throw in Whyte at a stretch Chisora and Harrison.

    It's like comparing chalk and cheese.
