    John McDermott should have beaten him already tbh.

    Even though that was way before his best days.

    Nobody is beating a motivated 6'9, 275 pounds monster on the front foot

    You can't beat a man who refuses to lose

    The thing with Fury which historically rarely occurs at heavyweight is that him bieng the biggest man in the division means he can ALWAYS rely on his size to turn it in a fight not just a boxing match.

    He has many ways to win a fight

    ali never fought inside
    Wlad never fought inside
    Smaller men can get stuck on the outside

    Fury is happy to get in on you and tear you to pieces. He can fight any kind of fight and win it.

    The naturally bigger man always holds a fairly big advantage. AJ is a 240 pound man when he isn't roided off his face...that's 30 pounds of natural weight advantage, against a man in Fury who can pace fight for 12 rounds & is like a gorilla in the clinch. What a nightmare.

    I want Joshua to stop Fury even more now so you go into hiding and don't return.

    He was very close to not getting up vs Wilder. He was way up on the cards but it could have happened.

    AJ has a better chance than Wilder that's for sure

    The key word used here is 'could' beat Fury.....so the list is extremely lengthy imo

    Wlad, The Tuscaloser, and David Price are unquestionably three of the hardest punching HWs of all time and none of them could beat him so we know he cannot be defeated with power and obviously no one is going to be able to outbox or outslick him.

    I think LL had the combination of size/skill/power to beat him.

    David Price is definitely not one of the hardest punching heavyweights of all time. I'm sure he hits plenty hard, but the results aren't there to put him in that category

    Wilder would have a KO win over Fury had it been a different ref. :lol:

    Id pick Ali, LL, Vitali and a none 40 year old Wlad to beat him.

    Those who've shared a ring with him speak very highly about his power

    PROLIFIC SPARRING PARTNER: ADAM MACHAJ

    Well, one indication lies with the select group of fighters who have exchanged leather will a group of the biggest contenders. One such example is journeyman Adam Machaj.

    In a 2017 interview with ***********, Machaj revealed that he has sparred with Joshua, Fury, Wladimir Klitschko as well as British favourites David Price and Dereck Chisora.

    He stated: “I’ve sparred all of them, I was in the Klitschko camp for three weeks. I’ve sparred Tyson and Hughie a lot of times, David Price I’ve done a lot of rounds with, I’ve trained with them all."


    THE TOUGHEST, MOST POWERFUL AND FITTEST

    Quite the selection of fighters, no doubt about it and Machaj had different ways of ranking their qualities.

    He chose the 'toughest fighter' from the four, the best athlete and who punches the hardest.

    Conveniently, four of the boxers fitted into at least one of the four categories.

    Machaj decided: “The toughest one I fought in terms of ability was Tyson, he’d beat most of the names out of shape now, getting off the settee. He’s too skilful.

    “He runs you around and makes you angry. In terms of a physical athlete it has to be Klitschko and Joshua, they’re the biggest athletes.

    “David Price was probably the biggest puncher as every punch he landed hurt, whilst Chisora was good as he was like a little Tasmanian devil, they’re all good in their own rights.”

    Well, we'll give Chisora the 'Tasmanian devil' award then.


    Perhaps the biggest comment of note is that Price is ranked as more powerful than three of the biggest names in 21st Century boxing.

    Price is known for his power, but it's quite the accolade to pack more punch than Klitschko, Joshua and Fury.

    However, if anyone would know, it's Machaj.


    "He's a big dangerous man today, even with four losses by knockout, or however many he has had, he is a dangerous fighter for anybody to take," he added.


    "Anybody who takes David Price on must be very wary, because even I believe that he is the biggest single-punch knockout man in boxing."

    -- Tyson Fury

    Vitali would have beaten him quite easily
