Does Tyson Fury belong on the list? Fans answer the burning question

Lennox Lewis VS Tyson Fury

Comparing Fury to heavyweight legends like Ali, Tyson, and Frazier has stirred up a range of opinions from fans. Some argue that Fury falls short of being considered a true heavyweight great. They point to his limited activity at the top level as a factor that diminishes his claim to greatness. One fan stated that Fury should be placed, “Behind all of them.”

He pointed out that ‘The Gypsy King’ hasn’t shown much activity to be counted amongst the greats, which seems to be more or less true as Fury hasn’t fought once since his last fight in December. However, he is soon going to fight Francis Ngannou on October 28th.

Another fan also shared a similar opinion, he stated, “Definitely below all of those legends in the picture.” Meanwhile, a fan complimented the talent of the British boxer, however, he also pointed out, “His legacy is Deontay Wilder. That’s really it”.

Someone else wrote in the same vein, “Outside of Deontay Wilder, who has he beaten of significant worth?”. One fan pointed out that Fury is a “quality fighter” and thus “he’s up there and it’s on merit.” Furthermore, he added that if Fury had 10 more quality fights, it would cement his name on the top five forever.

However, a fan disagreed and stated that he would rather face Fury than any other legends on the list. Thus the fan pointed out how the other boxers are much greater than Fury in a unique manner.

Overall, many fans disagreed with Fury belonging to the list. Many fans don’t believe that ‘the Gypsy King’ belongs with the greatest in history. What are your thoughts about the comments? Do share them in the comments below.
