Who Has Landed The Most Punches On Tyson Fury In A Fight?
By Mike Parrott
Tyson Fury has always been known for his incredible dodging ability, however it has finally been revealed who has landed the most punches on him in any bout.
The Gypsy King is finally and rightfully back at the top of the heavyweight boxing world. After outclassing Deontay Wilder in every department over their two match-ups, Fury is back on the throne and could well stay there until he hangs up his gloves permanently.
Fury has been known for his incredible footwork and defensive ability throughout his career and has even been labelled the 'Heavyweight Mayweather' by some boxing fans.

However, it has finally been revealed who has actually landed the most punches on Fury in a single match.
Otto Wallin - 127 Punches
Derek Chisora - 115 Punches (2011)
Steve Cunningham - 91 Punches
Kevin Johnson - 85 Punches
Deontay Wilder - 71 Punches (2018)
Wladimir Klitschko - 51 Punches
Shockingly, it shows that if anything, Fury has always outclassed the more hyped fighters in Wilder and Klitschko, while allowing himself to be hit more by Wallin in 2019.
However, it can be debated that he was still training for his upcoming Wilder rematch, fighting in a more aggressive style than prior which opened up more opportunities to land for Wallin.
That's naughty from Otto Wallin :flushed:

This even adds more fuel to the thought that Fury fights up (or down) to his competition, showing that he can outright dominate the likes of Wilder and Klitschko, while struggling more against lesser-known opponents. Then again, it could be Fury pacing himself in those fights while bringing his all for the biggest fights in his career.
Fury is a defensive monster nonetheless and with his next fight most likely being against Wilder for a third time, the 31-year-old Brit is expected to once again outclass the American.
