Tyson Fury declared himself the “best heavyweight of his era” after retaining his WBC title with an 11th-round knockout of Deontay Wilder here on Saturday.
Fury said: ‘When it comes down to it, every time I have given. I can only be the best of my day, I’ve done that: I’m the best fighter of my era.
‘Without a very loud and shrewd voice, I believe I can beat any person in history, any person born I believe has a good chance of killing him.’

But the Gypsy King will have to act fast to become the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion.
He has been given 30 days by the WBC to set up a title unifier against the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch against Oleksandr Usyk for the other big belts.
Otherwise he will be ordered to defend his WBC belt in a less meaningful fight against Dillian White or Otto Wallin, who clash later this month. The deadline seems unrealistic. For this he will have to make temporary deals with Joshua and Usyk.
Fury may threaten to relinquish his title. Alternatively co-promoters Bob Arum and Frank Warren are expected to offer different money already on the table for Joshua to allow Fury to go straight to Usyak.
Meanwhile, Wilder was discharged from hospital on Saturday night after being treated for a hand injury.
