    No Fury's not. How could a bum become the World Champion?

    Wilder, almost did.
    Wlad, would always have a chance to land a nuke, never be ruled out. Younger version was easier to hit and gassed, let's not forget that. If Fury made it through early rounds he'd stop that kind of Wlad.
    Price (pre Thompson). Sounds silly to some, but fully confident Price was very dangerous early rounds and had already dropped and beaten a young Fury in the amateurs. If Fury got too ****y or made a mistake, that early Price on his British KO run may have landed a big one and stopped Tyson.

    Vitali, too slow not enough power, style based on being bigger rangier fighter. Fury UD.
    Lewis, not as tough, not as fast, less endurance, very stupid. Fury UD.

    Lennox Lewis is the only one that I would absolutely favor to beat Fury.
    There's a few others who have a decent chance, but would not be favored.

    Wlad was over the hill and too bewildered by furys feints to drag him in a dogfight, Wilder is technically limited and David Price is trash.

    Power isnt a necessity to hurt Fury because he got put on the canvas by featherfisted cunningham and pijkic. He also got hurt by wallin in round 12. Wilder almost had him and when fury got up it was clear he was still buzzed by the knockdown. But instead of putting together quick, crisp combinations wilder went in there telegraphing his punches and windmilling like an idiot and got caught in a clinch which allowed Fury to recover

    Id favor the following over fury h2h, which is not to say I think they're all greater than him overall. This is based on what stylistically I think is the most problematic for fury. Obv this is prime versions of all.

    Ali
    Frazier
    Holy
    Tyson
    Marciano
    Tua

    As you've guessed I favor smaller compact guys who are aggressive and have quick feet and hands against fury rather than the giants like vitali or lennox.well except Ali who I just think would find a way to win, even if it was a dull decision. I could see like a great big man like vitali or Bowe or lennox beat fury too but fury is still a career in progress and to date he has dominated the bigger opponents bc he's much faster of hands and feet but smaller hw could match his speed and reflexes

    Fury would be all wrong for Tua. Lennox got on his toes and boxed his face off. Fury would do it just as easy and marciano would be too small. But i agree on the part that swarmer like fighters that love to come forward aggressively and work the body would be a nightmare style for Fury

    Fury is a freak of nature. His size coupled with his movement and stamina make him a tough outing for all heavies throughout the history of the sport. I would've count out Ali, M. Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Vitali Klitschko. As you mentioned, not many.

    One thing I would say is depending on who fights Fury their gameplay would be totally different to what we’ve seen them do before (history wise). .Lennox Lewis. Riddick Bowe tall big fighters would have fought hm differently than they fought the holyfields or Mike Tyson’s
    Imagine David haye fighting Fury like how he beat Valuev. He would have been murdered, I honestly think a few would adapt to beat Fury.

    I reckon these guys FIND a to beat Fury

    Lennox Lewis
    Vitali K
    Larry Homes
    Ali

    possibly
    George Foreman
    Mike Tyson
    Rocky Marciano (didn’t know how to lose either)
    Wlad K

    but that said look at some of the freaky wins we’ve all seen. I hate saying this but “styles make fights” and the likes of Chris Byrd or Corrie sanders proved us all wrong sometimes.

    Aj has a way better chance. Hes good up close unlike Wilder and would probably try and press the action against Fury like wallin did.... although most likely scenario is Fury on points

    Many would have beaten him who have already been named by other so won’t repeat them . I think the Manassa Mauler Jack Dempsey would beat him but I think Tyson beat the Great John L Sullivan.
