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.

“Very ambitious young heavyweight who’s coming to dethrone the lineal heavyweight champion, and he’s going to be very unsuccessful at this time.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Let’s go, champ! At 147 years old, he still looks like this. Let’s go, champ!”
“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.”
“One of the nicest guys in heavyweight boxing. He is the Doncaster De La Hoya, isn’t he? That’s what he says.”
“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.”
“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.”
“The future of the heavyweight division, if I don’t mind saying so myself.”
“Another young rising star in the division. A man who’s about to fight for and win the British heavyweight title.”
“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.”
“Big weightlifter, Olympic gold medalist and world champion. When I face him I’m gonna jab his nut in.”
