Tyson Fury has the chance to prove he is number one

These comments from Fury are merely claims from the Englishman. There will be many fans who agree with this post, but also many who disagree. However, Fury has the chance to back up his claims in the ring.

After months of speculation, Fury and Joshua finally agreed to a two-fight deal. This would see the winner become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. If ‘The Gypsy King’ wants to assert his dominance, he has to beat his compatriot.

In addition, a victory would prove his number one status since he has beaten Wilder and will hold a win over ‘AJ’. Therefore, it would leave no stone unturned. If Joshua wins, he would still have to beat ‘The Bronze Bomber’ to claim to be the best in the division.

However, only time will tell if Fury can cement his place as the best heavyweight in the world.

What do you make of these comments from Tyson Fury? Do you think he is the best active heavyweight?
