Fury: I’m the greatest heavyweight of my era

Tyson Fury believes he is the greatest heavyweight of his era after producing a scintillating display to beat Deontay Wilder in a boxing classic on Saturday.

The undefeated Englishman, 33, recovered from two knockdowns against the hard-hitting Wilder before knocking out the American in the 11th round to retain his WBC crown. “I know I’m the greatest heavyweight of my era, without doubt. Number one,” Fury said following an epic battle at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. 

“I’ve fought the most devastating puncher in the history of our sport, not once, not twice, but three times.” At a towering 6ft 9in tall and weighing in at 277lbs, Fury is unarguably one of the biggest heavyweight champions of all time. Icons of the heavyweight division like Muhammad 

Ali or Joe Frazier would be giving away massive advantages in height and weight in any theoretical match-up with the reigning champion. Fury was initially reluctant on Saturday to rank his chances against past greats.
