Tyson Fury: Victory Over Oleksandr Usyk Solidifies My Status as the Greatest Heavyweight of All Time

Tyson Fury assumes that a win over Usyk will earn him GOAT title
Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury firmly believes that defeating Oleksandr Usyk will cement his legacy as the greatest heavyweight boxer in history. 

As the WBC heavyweight champion with an impeccable record of 34-0-1 (24 KOs), Fury is set to face Usyk, who boasts an undefeated 21-0 (14 KOs) and holds the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles. This highly anticipated undisputed championship fight will take place this Saturday at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Fury, known for his victories over prominent fighters like Wladimir Klitschko, Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte, and Otto Wallin, acknowledges Usyk as his toughest challenge yet. 

"I think he’s the best opponent I’ve ever faced, because I’ve fought world heavyweight champions before, I’ve fought undefeated people before, I’ve fought Olympic gold medals before, but I’ve never fought a two-weight world champion before," Fury remarked in an interview with DAZN. "So, I think that puts him at the top of it all."

Despite his formidable track record, Fury's most recent bout was not his finest performance. Last October, he narrowly defeated former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou by split decision, even suffering a knockdown during the fight. Before this, Fury had an impressive streak of four consecutive knockout wins, including two against Wilder and one each against Whyte and Derek Chisora.

Fury is confident that overcoming Usyk will secure his place as the greatest heavyweight boxer ever. 

"I think this win puts me at No. 1, barring none," Fury declared. "Beating Usyk now puts me No. 1 status of all time."

As the boxing world eagerly anticipates this monumental clash, the stakes could not be higher. A victory for Fury would not only unify the heavyweight division but also bolster his claim to the title of the greatest heavyweight of all time. The showdown between Fury and Usyk promises to be a historic event, potentially reshaping the landscape of heavyweight boxing.
