The way Tyson Fury dominates the ring makes his technique seem flawless. The execution of punches and the body moment remains so smooth that the WBC and the Ring Magazine heavyweight champion appear the blueprint of an ideal boxer. But it does not mean that Fury has no weakness. It’s his command over art that prevents him from showing that weakness. Recently, the renowned American trainer Teddy Atlas exposed the weakness of the greatest heavyweight technician of this generation.

What he should have done was be prepared for that and when he went to Graham back bang bang bang. Step back create a space and guys from reaching in be prepared”, Atlas said.

But according to the trainer, these small things need a lot of attention. Like students in class complete their homework, in a similar way, Fury’s opponents have to prepare themselves before the fight.
