A fight that almost no one wanted and a fight that no one will ever see. Tyson Fury, Unbreakable Riddle.

If there’s any clarity to his world of smoke, it’s certainly his position among heavyweight boxing’s all-time greats, and his status as the most prolific confounder of his sport’s expectations from there.

He overtook Vladimir Klitschko in a jiffy, he bombed Deontay Wilder twice, and he succumbed to serious mental illness along the way.

Tyson Fury Vs, Deontay Wilder III Wanted by Some Fans and Pundits, But Unforgettable

He is a fickle giant who moves like a dancer, a technician who knocked Wilder down five times in three fights, and remains the subject of a forever-aired video clip in which he pits himself against Lee Swaby. was punched. . He is alternately an immovable object, a malicious force, a fanatic and a person banned for doping.

So where is he on that list of great heavyweights? It depends on what you like and what you don’t. How do you live and behave outside the ring? And what a blurry look at the fighters you’ve never seen.

Out of recent decades, Fury seems to be a pretty good pick. It would have been a bad joke to put him in a bracket with fighters like Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield or Lennox Lewis for a while.

Now you think about those match-ups, those styles, and it’s hard to guess who can beat a 6ft 9in fighter who’s never lost, can jab, bang and can move his legs, four Wilder can rise from knockdowns and is overloaded with skill and flexibility.

Whether you like him, it comes down to what you can tolerate. He seems to have been largely forgotten after he failed a drugs test in 2015, for which he was handed a two-year ban in 2017. That the UK Anti-Doping is still investigating allegations that it used a false pretext in the case is also ignored.

Her association with alleged gangster Daniel Kinahan? Couldn’t deliver most of the stuff in the game. And that is boxing. Its leaders, its media and its fans – they don’t let much stand in the way of a good punch-up.

Fury's relationship with mob boss Daniel Kinahan and failing a drug test affects him badly.

Which is both disappointing and nothing new – Mike Tyson was a convicted rapist. Now look at Frankie Carbo. After that, find Mobutu Sese Seko, the former president of Zaire, with whom Muhammad Ali and George Foreman had fallen into bed. One clue: He liked to roll his eyes.

It’s a game that has always stretched the best of the best guys out for some thunder, and it’s probably only natural that the game of punches operates outside of normal moral norms. Amidst all this, Fury is neither its biggest badass, nor anything like an angel.

But what a fighter. What a truly talented fighter. It must be fully recognized, even if it does not come at the cost of forgetting what else it may have been.

There is no denying that the Gypsy King is indeed a talented fighter and should be recognized
