EXCLUSIVE: Muhammad Ali's Brother Responds To Claims Comparing Tyson Fury To Ali

EXCLUSIVE: Muhammad Ali's Brother Responds To Claims Comparing Tyson Fury To Ali

Muhammad Ali's brother Rahaman has responded to claims by Tyson Fury's trainer that he is the closest thing to the iconic boxer.

Ben Davison made the claim that Fury's notoriety means he is now comparable to the most iconic face of boxing and that the pair 'have so many resemblances.'

And now, Ali's brother Rahaman has responded to the claims comparing Fury to 'The Greatest'.

Speaking exclusively to SPORTbible promoting his book 'My Brother, Muhammad Ali: The Definitive Biography of the Greatest of All Time', the 76-year-old said that he means no disrespect to Fury, but nobody in modern boxing is comparable to his brother.

"Let me be clear on this. I wish folks would stop trying to compare today's fighters to my late brother Muhammad Ali.

"There will never ever be another Muhammad Ali. He was and will always be the greatest...period.

"While it's good talk that Fury's trainer 'believes' Tyson Fury is the closest we have seen to my brother, reality is that while Fury does have personality to go with his boxing, he is not even close to achieving what my brother achieved in or out of the ring.

"That is not me be disrespectful to Tyson Fury, that is just telling it how I truly see it.

Rahaman's sentiment likely lines up with the feelings that the majority of the boxing community feel about the debate.

Although Fury is beginning to branch out into different paths of sport, it is hard to see him ever having the cultural impact that Ali had during his life outside of the ring.
