    Well he isn't wrong. Whoever becomes undisputed is the man of this era. and Fury has to do it if he wants that accolade.

    No lies detected.. As good as Fury is it’s hard to say he’s the best of this era without fighting Usyk if he wins.. Why make it a debate when you can settle it in the ring and have a definitive answer..

    Lennox was, is, and always will be a class act.

    He doesn't have to worry...Usyk wants it big time.

    I don’t think anyone will disagree with Lewis on this one. Fury need to stick around for one more fight against the winner of Usyk/AJ 2.

    Heavyweight languished for many years until Fury, Wilder, AJ, and Usyk came around. It would be a real stick in the mud if Fury retired now. Fury should at least fight the winner of Usyk vs AJ, and ideally both!

    Agreed, whoever wins between Usyk and Joshua in the rematch, Fury to cement his legacy as the best in his era needs to unify with the winner. It would end any talk of anyone else being the best and make him undeniably the undisputed champion.

    Lewis was the last undisputed champion over 20 years ago so for Fury to do that it would make him the best since Lewis and for me a clear top 10 ATG heavyweight despite his lack of title defences.

    Lewis never had WBO.
    Lewis give up IBF belt. He lost WBA belt stripped never defended. Lewis was mainly WBC.

    He is right. and yes Fury will do it. He fight Usyk or AJ.

    And you can't see the flaw in why that would be relevant in any way?

    It is relevant to what Lewis said.
    He was more happy to have other champs at the time. More than he indicates now.

    Well you appear to be a Fury fanboy Alt.
    Having said that the WBO wasn't seen as a main belt in the 90's. No diffferent to the IBO and WBU belts today.
