Tyson Fury is by far the most comic and perhaps the best trash talker of the heavyweight division. As famous as he is for his boxing skills, Fury is equally known for the fiery one-liners he dishes out to his foes. At times, even people who aren’t his foes are on the receiving end of these fiery lines.

Fury, last month, took up the ring space to settle his prolonged beef with Deontay Wilder for one last time. The Brit was regarded as a favorite in this fight, and many expected him to finish Wilder even early this time. However, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ showed up with a mindset to be a different version of himself.

Although the Alabama native was the first one to go on the canvas, he still responded by dropping Fury twice in round 4. These knockdowns shook Fury, who brushed them off and rose to conquer his foe.

Post the knockdowns, Fury didn’t let Wilder dictate the pace of the fight. The undefeated star went all out against his rival, dropping him multiple times in the fight. Finally, in round 11, ‘The Gypsy King’ struck Wilder with a significant right hook to close the show.

With this, Fury defended a world title for the very first time in his career.

Out of all the possible contenders, Dillian Whyte holds the maximum weight to his name to fight Fury. This is because he has the WBC interim heavyweight title under his wing.

As Whyte has been inactive longer than Fury, he should be ready to go and compete for the world title for the first time in his career.
