Default Time ta talk about TYSON FURY

Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder, (two outta three the first was a draw).

Wilder is big 6'7" with a good reach 83" and as much knock out power as anyone in boxing history.

Wilder actually knocked out Fury in the first and third fights, butt: Fury got up and fought to a draw in the first fight and won after a long count in the third fight.

Fury is huge 6'9" with an 84" reach. He is prolly the baddest arse in boxing of all time.

The goat, (Muhammed Ali), would have major problems as Fury is as fast and also moves in the ring as did Ali, and much bigger.

Prolly the best chance would be Lennox Lewis, (a fellow Brit), who was also huge: 6'5", very fast, great chin, ring presence, and knock out power in both hands.

Sonny Liston would be a huge problem for Fury, as he was 6' 1" with a 84" reach and huge 15" hands, (biggest ever in boxing), and devastating power in both hands. His chin was suspect.

Big George Forman would be another problem for Fury due to his tremendous power, chin and meanest hombre (as a young man).

How would you rank the heavy weight boxers of all time?

Youtube is awful butt: you can see he best of the best there. Ya gotta suffer some ads, butt what the heck?

Try Roy Jones Jr, (one of a kind), I assure you. All the boxing greats are represented.

Funny story. I grew up in Columbus and attended the local elementary school that was a few blocks away from our home.

One day when I was in the third grade, we were lining up with our class to come in from recess. (Back then they would line us all up by class and then bring us back to the classroom one class at a time). Anyway, I had a Yo-Yo and had just taken the string off my finger and putting it in my pocket when this older black kid ran by, grabbed it from me and started running. I chased him down, we got into a fight and I got my Yo-Yo back.

They then hauled us to the principles office and I got a swat on the rear and he got 2 or 3 for starting the altercation.

Years later, I was working close to where I live now and part of my job was to coordinate with an onsite supplier to line up work with them with what our company was doing. One of the people I worked with and I got into a discussion and found out that we both attended the same elementary school in Columbus. He then proceeds to tell me that Buster Douglas also attended the same school.

I was then remembering the incident to him and it jogged my memory that the kid I got into the fight with went by Buster. I always thought is was a nickname.

He then says "That was you?" remembering the fight. Apparently he was in one of the lines after recess and saw the whole thing.

So the moral of the story is, I beat the guy that beat Mike Tyson. They both owe me a Christmas card every year.

A few years back, I was in Chicago on business. A coworker of mine and me got back to the hotel after work and got into an elevator to go to our rooms. When we stepped in, there was a fairly large (well built) guy in the elevator in sweats, with a towel around his neck and acting like he wanted us to ask him who he was.

He proceeds to tell us his name and that he is Mike Tyson's favorite sparring partner.

I then tell him my story about Buster and then said "And you tell Tyson he still owes me a Christmas card." He got a good laugh out of that and said he would relate the story.

My work partner and I had a good laugh after that and then met up at the bar for happy hour. Good times.

I agree on Ali, Forman, butt: Then there is Joe Lewis, (who also could be the goat), Roy Jones Jr, Sonny Liston, n' I think Frazier woulda wupped Tyson. I will give ya several lists:

#1 Joe Lewis
#2 Ali
#3 Rocky Marciano
#4 George Foreman
#5 Lennox Lewis

The above is based on both great fighters/champions and great character.

#1Tyson Fury
#2 Lennox Lewis
#3 George Foreman
#4 Ali
#5 Sonny Liston

The above is the toughest mofos in history.

#1 Ali
#2 Larry Holmes
#3 Roy Jones Jr.
#4 George Foreman
#5 Rocky Marciano

The above is the most totally impressive mofos in history.

Honorable mention:

Holyfield, (very VERY tough mofo)
Tyson, (also a very bad intimidating ass in his prime)
Deontay Wilder, (huge knock out ratio)
Both Klitschkos, (Big, bad and dominate in their time)

Me overpriced $0.02... burp...
