John Fury Finally Names Which Boxing Legend Could Beat Tyson Fury In The Ring

A heavyweight version of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather could be the only fighter to defeat Tyson Fury inside the ring, according to John Fury.

The 'Gypsy King,' 32, remains undefeated in his 31-fight campaign and boasts a record with wins over former WBC champ Deontay Wilder and boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko.

And Fury currently plans to fight Wilder for the third time before eyeing up a mega-unification showdown with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua.

John has insisted that the current crop of heavyweights don't stand a chance against his son inside the squared circle.

Fury's dad rates Mayweather's boxing skills and only believes a heavyweight version of 'Money' could 'cause problems' for the 'Gypsy King.'

The 56-year-old told iFL TV: "There's nobody out there unless you can get a 6'8, 18-and-a-half stone Floyd Mayweather.

"That is the only kind of [person] who is going to give him [Fury] problems."

The Brit superstar has since agreed to a two-fight deal with 'AJ,' who is set to face IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.

However, 'Big' John has argued that not even the unified world champ has the boxing IQ or skills to defeat Fury in their all-British showdown.

"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," he said.

"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."
