Tyson Fury went to the studio for BT Sport and ran through some of the top names in the heavyweight division from today and yesterday, as well as some up-and-coming fighters, giving quick thoughts on each of them.

It’s worth a watch, it’s pure Tyson Fury at his most humorous and relaxed.

Tom Schwarz

“Very ambitious young heavyweight who’s coming to dethrone the lineal heavyweight champion, and he’s going to be very unsuccessful at this time.”

Deontay Wilder

“Someone pretending to be a bad man with his mask on, doing a Bane impression. Didn’t really frighten me, to be honest. He was putting the mask on to hide his emotions. But a one-punch knockout artist, not a man you can take lightly at any time.”

Muhammad Ali

“The greatest of all time. When I look at this guy, I just think legend, game-changer, belongs at the top of the heavyweight division. The greatest.”

Shannon Briggs

“Let’s go, champ! At 147 years old, he still looks like this. Let’s go, champ!”

Dillian Whyte

“A man who has to fight everybody for nothing, a man who’s being used and abused at the moment. A man who deserves a world title shot.”

Dave Allen

“One of the nicest guys in heavyweight boxing. He is the Doncaster De La Hoya, isn’t he? That’s what he says.”

Luis Ortiz

“Another guy who’s 147 years old. Probably would have been a good man maybe 15, 20 years ago, when he was in his prime.”

Daniel Dubois

“Rising star in the division, knockout artist. He’s got a big challenge coming up against Nathan Gorman, and I think he’s gonna get his ass kicked. But what do I know? I’m only the lineal heavyweight champion of the world.”

Joe Joyce

“The future of the heavyweight division, if I don’t mind saying so myself.”

Nathan Gorman

“Another young rising star in the division. A man who’s about to fight for and win the British heavyweight title.”

Mike Tyson

“The man himself, the legend I was named after, and a man that I’ll be meeting in Vegas.”

Andy Ruiz Jr

“The young kid from Up, who’s now fighting Anthony Joshua for the heavyweight championship of the world. Don’t judge a book by its cover in this one, Andy can fight. He’s a good little heavyweight. And when I say little, I mean little.”

Anthony Joshua

“Big weightlifter, Olympic gold medalist and world champion. When I face him I’m gonna jab his nut in.”
