    He is an extremely hard man to beat on his game. Vitali Wlad, Lennox I think have the best chance if any

    He is spitting straight facts and Fury will stop a tiring Joshua

    Lewis
    Ali
    Holmes
    Foreman
    Tyson (Prime)
    Frazier
    Norton
    Witherspoon (Prime)
    Bowe (Prime)
    Holyfield
    Golota that faced Bowe
    W Klitschko (Prime)
    V Klitschko
    Douglas (Japan)

    Maybe a whole host of others it’s hard to say until we see Fury fight a quality opponent or someone at their best!

    Definitely Lennox Lewis and Vitali Klitschko. Larry Holmes and Riddick Bowe would also probably beat him

    I think Wilder has, and always would have, a better chance of beating Fury than Joshua. Fury's simply a better boxer than Joshua, and AJ is too stuck in his relatively fundamentals-first, and these days overly careful, style to trouble Fury too much. I do rate AJ, but Wilder has that beginner's luck aspect to his absurdly powerful bombs that a grounded boxer like AJ can't call on. Wilder would lose to all of the ten greatest heavyweights, nine times out of ten, maybe 29 times out of 30. But he hits hard and unpredictably enough to win that one time - and he very, very nearly did against Fury. Joshua doesn't. Of the current crop, I don't think anyone else beats Fury.

    But you've surely got to give Lennox a good chance at winning. Fury's namesake Mike would have been a real handful for him in his prime, if only he'd been a bit taller. Prime Vitali and Wlad have a good shot. I actually think Haye might have been an uncomfortable fight for Fury too. But his height and elusiveness preclude a lot of otherwise very good fighters from troubling him too much.

    One of the main reasons a prime Mike Tyson landed so many brutal flush shots on chins was his height. Being shorter and crouching low while slipping inside meant his opponents had to punch down. When they punch down their chins were exposed due to the arm/shoulder mechanics of punching downward.

    I think if Mike Tyson was any taller than six feet he would lose some of what made him special in his prime. Just my thoughts.

    I See you’re new. Welcome to this wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    Totally agree about Tyson(Mike)'s height, but I feel like Tyson (Fury) might be a bit too tall even for him. I did post a bit under another name a couple of years ago, but I forgot my login stuff. Been lurking since, andI'd post more if most threads didn't devolve into verbose slugfests!

    Who “could” beat him? Plenty.

    Most likely would be Ali, Lennox Lewis, and prime Wlad.

    So what you described above means nobody in the world could beat Tyson Fury? The fact is everyone is beatable.
