WBC champion, Tyson Fury, has walked through the heavyweight division without losing a single bout in his 13-year-long active pro career. En route, ‘The Gypsy King’ has touched all the world titles of the weight class and currently boasts a record of 30 wins and 1 draw, inclusive of 21 KOs.

He is arguably the best heavyweight champion of the era, and despite being contrasted with several elites, Fury’s unique features help him in the GOAT debate. While he has undergone many struggles away from the spotlight, he has always bounced back in style.

That said, ‘The Gypsy King’ has recently connected with IFL TV and reflected on his dominance over the heavyweight unit. Although he claimed of searching for a better competitor, Tyson Fury billed himself as the top-dog of the roster.

“See, if I am looking for a challenge, I have been looking, searching the world for 13 years a professional to find a man who can better me. And I just can’t find him. Even if I go away and away soiling, if all the odds away, still can’t beat me. I am like the bionic action warrior. I can’t be beat,” said the undefeated WBC champion.

Nevertheless, Tyson Fury can face the toughest challenge of his career in an ultimate title unification clash against Anthony Joshua. Despite Fury’s confidence in bagging the win, Joshua can rightfully land an upset and that’s what heavyweight boxing is all about.

Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua- Will it settle the doubts?

Fury vs Joshua will be an intriguing contest to watch and an important fight for the division. Akin to Fury, Joshua was also undefeated until his meeting against Andy Ruiz Jr. As ‘Destroyer’ stunned Joshua, ‘AJ’ bounced back in the rematch and reclaimed his lost throne.

Not only that, but ‘AJ’ also defended his unified titles against Kubrat Pulev in December. So he is once again on the right track to demand a title unification. While Fury is also looking for a relevant opponent, he and ‘AJ’ can produce one of the biggest fights ever in the sport. After some initial developments, the matchup needs to be made official.

Optimistic fans would expect the fight to take place in mid-2021. Or else, the heavyweight matchup would be pushed to the end of this year. Amid all this enthusiasm, contractual turmoils can still hamper the clash.

Do you see the “Bionic Man” Fury boxing Joshua next? Or will he have to touch gloves with the WBC mandatory?
