    Lewis is too stiff and would have stamina issues dealing with Fury

    Fury taps that ass.

    Fury schooled Wlad, Wilder and would school AJ

    Lennox is a great fighter but Fury would have his number also. Fury is one of the best heavyweights of all time it's just a matter of time in till people accept that.

    6'8" 260 pounds and moves like no man that size in the history of the sport. You ever seen head, body and foot movement like that for 12 rounds from a man that big?

    hell no.

    He makes The klits and Lewis look like robots.

    People are coming to terms with the facts and still trying to understand that they've never seen a man that big move like Fury

    A rioded up Evander Holyfield is the type of fighter who would stand a chance. A big stiff man won't cut it.

    He toyed with 40 year old Wlad. He would also toy with 40 year old Lewis, 40 year old Ali, 40 year old Tyson. Just because he won against a 40 year old Wlad it automatically doesn't make him greater then all.
    The only prime guy he fought is Wilder and he beat him in a close match.

    I think Fury is one of the few heavies that could out box Lewis, problem is when Lewis was out boxed he went into seek and destroy mode and he's far better than Wilder. He disguises his punches better, has a damn good jab and is adept on the inside. I think he'd come from behind and KO Fury.

    Tough fight , Lewis gets a UD win 3 out 5 times and a possible knockout.

    Fury could win this fight but he would need much better crisp punching...he's not going to get many shots in on Lewis who could nullify Furys inside game and had interchangeable jab ability.

    Fury might well beat Lewis.
    I noticed during his career that Lewis really didn't face many really skillful boxers, proven guys who could box in all directions. The best he faced was Holyfield, who was getting old and was much smaller.

    Tyson Fury's a boxer in the same category as Larry Holmes.

    Fury's not as great as those guys because he hasn't the achievements under his belt, but based on the Klitschko win, and was he's done coming off that 140 pound weight gain and 2 1/2 year hiatus, you have to recognize his ability.

    Lewis was not a one trick pony like Wilder, far from it.

    I think Fury would make Lewis look a bit silly for the first 4 or 5 rounds but then Lewis get's into his grove and catches him and finishes him off. Lewis KO in about 8 or 9.

    Fury would get brutally stopped, against Lewis.

    I'm not talking about the Fury of the Wilder fight. But rather the Wlad fight, which was his best performance. Fury can only improve on his last performance if you think about it.

    Would like to see the 2015 version vs Lummox. Current Fury is still like a tonight Matthew impersonator of that guy.

    This is crazy, can't anyone put their feelings related to Wilder vs Fury fight aside? We are talking about a guy, who has argueably the best resume among heavyweights(alongside with Ali) and fought(&won) almost every possible style. And then there is Fury, who is extremely gifted both in skills and size but fought only 2 names from the top, an old, unprepared Wladimir Klitschko and Wilder whose flaws cause waves in Thaiti. He hasn't shown anything that can win him a fight against a prime LL yet.

    This.

    Lennox didn't just allow himself to get out boxed and do nothing about it.

    Lewis smacks the crap out of Fury.

    Not remotely close. Fury fans are getting way out of their prams here, it's getting a little embarrassing.

    Even Wilder fans are not this delusional.

    Lewis always found a way. Lennox for me.

    Though I have to admit to being wrong about Fury in both his big fights.
