Tyson Fury's win over Dillian Whyte left many wondering if there was anyone who could beat the WBC world heavyweight champion.
The Gypsy King explained why he was the greatest heavyweight of all time, rather suggesting that there isn't anyone who can take away his undefeated record.
Certainly there's a chance that no one else will get the chance to prove it one way or another, with the 33-year-old retiring after the fight, even if wife Paris wasn't too convinced.
Tyson's dad, John, who was able to watch one of his son's fights for the first time in the flesh since 2008, has previously described the type of boxer who could beat his son.
The only problem is that the person the 57-year-old described doesn't really exist, as he's essentially a much taller version of Floyd Mayweather.
"There’s nobody out there unless you can get a 6’8, 18-and-a-half stone Floyd Mayweather," big John told iFL TV back in September 2020.
"That is the only kind of [person] who is going to give him [Fury] problems.
"There’s nobody out there that can be compared to this man’s [Tyson Fury] strength, size and boxing ability and the boxing IQ. He has got the brains to match everything else.
"The heavy-legged, the slow-feeted, the one-two left hook and the technical boxing stuff, this man [Fury] will kill you stone dead.
"It’s not enough for him, that conventional boxing style, one-two and a jab, left hook and a little bit of slow movement. This man will eat your life."
In the lead up to the fight on Saturday, Gypsy John had managed to get himself involved in the first face-to-face meeting of the champion and the challenger.
The only slight chance of a fight breaking out in the press conference came when Fury senior pushed Whyte's brother on the stage, leading to Dillian calling John an 'idiot.'
Whyte then hilariously thought his opponent's dad was BT Sport interviewer Steve Bunce during an interview before suddenly realising it wasn't.
