There’s a long, long line of [great champions] and they go right back to John L Sullivan, Jack Dempsey, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Joe Frazier, the Klitschko brothers, even the guys from today like Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk and everybody else.”
He continued, “They’re all good champions, but without sounding too sharp and clever, I’d place myself right on top of the pile. I believe that I could beat anyone in history. Any man born, I believe I’ve got a really good chance of beating him.”
Talking about the fight he said, “You go swimming and you’re going to get wet. You mess with fire long enough, you’ll get burnt.
I’ve had three fights with the biggest puncher in the history of my sport, in my division. And he caught me. He caught me twice in the fourth round.
But I was never thinking, ‘Oh, this is over.’ I was thinking, ‘OK, good shot, but I will get you back in a minute.’ And I did.
“I was very conscious, saw the ref goes ‘three, four. I was always there. He shook me. He put me down. But that’s boxing and its life, as well.
It’s not about how many times you get put down or how many times you lose. It’s about how you can come back and get up and keep moving forward.”
“That’s what I’m here for. I traveled the world for so many years to find challengers and he gave me a worthy challenge tonight for sure.”
Tyson Got Scared When He Knocked Down
“I came into this fight tonight thinking you can only do your best in life and whatever’s destined, written in the stars for you, will be. And that’s it. I trained hard, I dedicated my life and I got the victory tonight.”
“I’ve just earned a well-earned break from everything,” Fury said. “Been away from my family for six months. Before I start thinking about fighting other men, I’m going to bask in this victory.
Because this tonight was one of my greatest wins. I got off the floor to do it. And I’m the big dog in the division.
He concluded, “I will never let anybody tell you can’t. Because tonight, again, I’ve shown that it’s very possible to achieve anything you ever want as long as you believe it.”
“Boxing History,” Warren said
Frank Warren the promoter of Tyson fury said, “It is the best live heavyweight fight I have ever seen. Two warriors in there who gave everything.
