Khabib Backs Tyson Fury As Best Heavyweight In Boxing

Adjust Comment Print

Fury against Schwarz may not be as dynamic as Wilder's brutal finish of Breazeale, and surely it won't bring the sport to a grinding halt like the Ruiz/Joshua upset, but it's a showdown that Fury has to take seriously so his high stock in his chosen craft doesn't lose value.

The narrative that surrounded these two when they first laced up gloves last December was one that was truly remarkable to watch unfold.

Any combination of the aforementioned names in a ring together this year is what boxing supposedly needed, but instead, each fighter, guided by their respective promoters, all scattered off in different directions seemingly avoiding addressing the issue regarding who is the planet's finest heavyweight.

The interviewer asks the Gypsy King to confirm he did not know anything about it.

Everything is good with that situation so we're still keeping the light lit up in the heavyweight division.

Wilder, instead, will turn his attentions to a rematch for Luis Ortiz at the end of 2019 while the American knock-out specialist also announced via social media that he would share the ring with Fury in another bout.

"When a man doesn't want to be there once, he will always do it and it's hard to come back from", the former heavyweight champion, who will face Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on Saturday, told BBC Sport.

"The crowd have warmed to me and been very welcoming. Now that I'm signed with a big U.S. TV station, it's my time to put on great shows".

Maurizio Sarri deal could trigger Frank Lampard approach from Chelsea
Lampard's success at Derby was achieved with a team of young players on loan from Premier League clubs. The problem, however, are his previous comments on the Blues during his time with Liverpool.

"Everybody thought that man could beat me", said Fury. At Tuesday's final press conference he prowled the stage with eyes ablaze like a veteran stand-up, draped in a suit emblazoned with the images of old-time bare-knuckle champions and a pair of sunglasses at rest on his gleaming dome, any and all inhibitions probably stashed next to wherever he had left his dress shirt. I have a amusing feeling I am going to have to get up off the floor in this fight to win it. You can come back from anything.

"I just want to box, but all the other stuff that comes with it puts pressure", he continued.

"I am living the dream. Within five seconds I'll know exactly what to do with him".

"It'd be something of history because they have never fought [in the Azteca] two heavyweight world champions".

"What's to say I can even take a punch any more?"

"I keep telling people this could be the last time I am at Leeds Arena and I kind of want it to be".

Joshua is now set to face Ruiz Jr in a rematch later this year for the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world titles.

"We prepared for Tom Schwarz the same way we prepared for Deontay Wilder, just having that extra time for his body to recover from a 140lb weight loss", Davison said. I don't see myself retiring.
