    Fury.

    Fury vs Lennox would be reminiscent of the fight vs Vitali Klit except Fury can move better and is longer. Lennox ruled in a similar way to Wlad- long, rangy, 1-2. Not as ABC as Wlad but basically the same fundamentals. Fury would toy with him like he did to Wlad

    Lewis destroys him. Firstly Fury cant knock an average joe HW out. And Lewis right hand will rip Smash Fury to bits. It wont go beyond 4 rounds.

    Right now I'm thinking Fury. Before I'd of said LL. But after this performance with all things considered, TF is a very, very special talent.

    I'd favour Lewis but Fury can make this a very awkward fight and would win rounds. Lewis can be caught but Fury isn't a puncher so he's going to have to find a different way to beat him. I'd expect a very scrappy affair.

    Fury is too slick, LL drops him once maybe but loses a wide UD.

    Look at the pedigree Lewis has faced and beat - Most of them will beat Fury. 100% fact that Fury has never knocked out an average HW fighter. Lewis smashes his up. And no way Lewis loses on points. He is far the better skilled boxer.

    Fury NEVER faced 5% of the talent Lewis has beaten and KNOCKED OUT

    It wouldn't take Lennox Lewis 12 rounds to drop Fury like that. And once he had Fury hurt, he would keep him hurt and stop him.

    Any version of Fury easily beats the likes of Mavrovic, Briggs, Botha, Grant, Jackson

    Peak Fury beats most opponents on that list.

    Holyfield and Vitali have the best chances to beat him. Although Holyield was way past his prime against Lewis, so I'd pick prime Fury to outbox him too.

    Tyson was shot to bits, he was KO'd in 4 by Danny Williams two fights later.
