    He could potentially beat Lewis so he definitely makes the top 10.

    Lewis would be favored because of his punching power , inside game and a willingness to drag Fury into a dog fight if he has to.

    In an ATG fantasy world filled with frauds like Wilder, 40 year old Wlads, or the odd stay-busy with guys like Seferi and Wallin Fury is a #1 ATG.

    Easily.

    Vitali, Lennox and Wlad ARE LUCKY Fury wasn't born 10 years earlier.

    Fury would box the head off any version of Vitali & Wlad.

    A prime Lennox would put up a good fight, i'm not sure how he would cope with a late fight Fury who CAN HOLD PACE. He's a total freak. His stamina is unreal.

    Again I remind you all, NO SUPERHEAVYWEIGHT especially one of Fury's size has ever had the stamina and movement that he can maintain over 12 rounds. He WILL be remembered as one of the greatest heavys of all time, he will toy with AJ and Whyte if they ever fight him.

    The current super-heavys and previous super-heavys will all falter late fight against him 100%.

    Fury looked beatable back in 2009-2013 when he was stuck between bieng an out-boxer and come forward brawler. He is now the complete package and looks near unbeatable.

    To burst your bubble, whatever you consider "prime" Fury will ALWAYS beat a "prime" Wlad.

    Wlad was good for knocking over small men who walk at him. nothing more.

    He beat one really good fighter (Wilder) and one old man who used to be a great fighter (Klitschko).

    He has awhile to go to be considered even in the top 20 imo.

    Clay, Foreman, '77 Holmes, Louis, Liston, Steward-era Lewis, Holy, prime Wlad, Tyson, and 1992 Bowe beat him.

    H2H there is nobody that I'd bet on against him. That doesn't mean that he couldn't lose to one of the big, athletic fighters in the heavyweight division right now. Guys like Joshua, Wilder, Hrgovic, Miller (if he comes back close to what he was), Joyce, Dubois, Usyk (maybe the most skilled of the group), Majidov, Yoka, Makhumudov, and many more are big, strong, and skilled. A mistake against any of them could be a loss, but H2H against the heavyweights of the past there is nobody that I'd want to bet on against Fury.

    An "easy" defense against a 6-6, 235 pound undefeated southpaw was tough, in past eras, the opponent (Wallin) would have been avoided because he was a southpaw and huge, but Fury took the fight and won. Fury won't have the luxury of fighting a Zora Folley, Cleveland Williams, Jean Pierre Coopman, or Scott Frank. It will be tough for Fury, most of the top heavyweights are physically imposing with good amateur backgrounds.

    He's going to outweigh most HW greats by 20-50lbs, have like 5 inches of height on them, like 7+ inches of effective reach, and he's only getting better at using those attributes. Anthony Joshua will beat him long before Joe Louis or Rocky Marciano do.

    Yes he is. The size alone makes guys like Joe Louis a no hoper vs him. Big George would be little George Foreman vs Fury.

    Then he can box and move like a middleweight.. Not many come close.
