    It's true, Fury hasnt fought 90 year old Povetkin, Carlos Takam, Pudding Ruiz etc.

    The big stiff Robot is even taking on 86 year old Kubrat Pulev in his next fight, he really does just want the toughest fights

    Here is an idea !

    Why dont all the Heavyweights fight each other to see who is best?

    Criticising the quality of another fighter's resume when his best win is the same as your best win, is really not a strong base for an argument.

    It doesn't get any more "deep end" than Fury rising like the Undertaker after getting poleaxed by Wilder, and going on to win the rest of the round. Not to mention of course taking the fight to the same guy next time around and bullying him all around the ring, contrary to what the vast majority of experts thought he needed to do to win the rematch.

    LOL at Anthony Joshua and his fanboys who value beating the likes of school teacher Eric Molina, diver Charles Martin, out of shape Dillian Whyte, average Carlos Takam, ***** tits Dominic Breazeale, old Alexander Povetkin, 20 stones Andy Ruiz and sloppy seconds Wladimir Klitschko over 3 wins of the highest tier which Tyson Fury proudly boasts.

    Strange comment from Joshua.
    Fury has been stepped up really well in his career. Over came a few hurdles and now is top dog.
    In his early days the Mcdermott fight stands out as one where he didn't perform only to look much better in the rematch.
    By the time he took on Wlad, he'd beaten a good cross sections of fighters.
    He then beats Wlad away from home - when Wlad was fresher- Fury takes time off for what ever reason - takes a couple of tune ups - and nearly dethrones an unbeaten puncher - takes the rematch and destroys his opponent in the type of one sided beat down we rarely see at championship level.

    Joshua 's early run was OK but nothing special with only the Whyte win of any real note. Martin was a total paper champion and Aj flattend him in no time.

    Breazeale and Molina are both OK but no better at World level any top fighter should be stopping them.
    Wlad was life and death exciting but I think that display along with the Parker fight AJ's weaknesses in stamina, chin and willingness to trade when someone has faster hands were on display.

    Whyte, Parker, Povetkin all decent wins but he took his eye off the ball in the way that Fury hasn't in the ring. I think Fury has had plenty of tuff competition.

    Its all click bait and orchestrated. Expect plenty more of this until they actually fight.

    A Tyson Fury thread and a noticeable absent contributor - Tony Hayers must be on the Matchroom coffee making course.

    The PPV Mugths are going to get the biggest poking of all time at least twice.

    The bait tin has just been opened.

    AJ has fought more average/good fighters than Fury but there's no doubt Fury has fought and looked better against the elite level fighters

    Because Otto Wallin, Tom Schwarz, Pianta and Seferi are so much better than the above.

    My brew has more depth to it than Tyson's "resume".

    Name one elite World Champion dethroned by Tony Dosh PPV and with the exception of the old rusty robot, name one fighter on his CV that is not a pudding.

    You answer should be quicker than an ant pulling back its foreskin

    I see Joshua's point but Fury was coming off fat camp and a long lay off so you have to put it into context. Going forward I don't think anybody would accept this level of competition and the road map should look something like this: Wilder, Whyte, Joshua, Joshua, Usyk.

    I love how Matchroom casuals call Takam, Povetkin and Ruiz solid wins...
