Former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis spoke about compatriot Tyson Fury. Lewis also compared Fury’s possible fight against Oleksandr Usyk to his fight against Mike Tyson in 2002.
“Look at the guys who are in this division. Will Fury be able to defeat them? I guess so. Now he is the best heavyweight in the world. Yes, I know he was talking about retirement. But I’m not sure if these words can be trusted. However, it will be sad if he never fights Usyk.
I didn’t know if there would ever be a fight with Mike Tyson, but I knew that deep down I want it. Because it will be unpleasant to hear from someone: “Tyson would have beaten you.” Now no one can say that. They can only say: “You are the best, you defeated Tyson,” Lewis was quoted by Yahoo Sports with reference to PA Media.
The Fury fight against Dillian Whyte will take place on the night of April 23-24 at Wembley Stadium in London. The British heavyweights will fight for the WBC title.Note: This Site may earn an affiliate commission if you sign up via a link on this page
