Fury: Everybody brings their A-game when they face me

Tyson Fury says fighters know that a win over him is like punching a ticket to the lottery.

As Tyson Fury rages on the comeback trail, the former unified champion says that opponent Francesco Pianeta will be looking to upset the apple cart knowing that a win over him can catapult his career.

“Pianeta is just one win away from being back right there among the best,” Fury, 29, said.

”Everybody brings their A-game when they face me. They know it’s a lottery win if they can beat me.”

And although some are less than thrilled with Pianeta as Fury’s next opponent, Fury says he’s actually impressed with the fighter as he used to spar with him once upon a time. Fury also says his last fight against Sefer Sefari might’ve made Sefari look like a bad opponent, but that’s only because he makes everyone look bad.

“He looked terrible against me, but that has happened to so many people. Klitschko didn’t look much better against me than Seferi, to be honest.”

Fury continues by saying that he’s having the time of his life in boxing, training, and that finally everything is clicking in that regard. With a win against Pianeta it’s currently expected that Fury will take on Deontay Wilder at the end of the year, with representatives from both sides acknowledging that the fight is very close to being made official.
