Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Have Both Named Their Toughest Opponents To Date

Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Have Both Named Their Toughest Opponents To Date

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have both opened up about their toughest boxing opponents to date -- and neither of them named each other.

The two boxing superstars will clash in their hotly-anticipated rematch on 22nd February in Las Vegas.

And Fury, 31, suggested that his fight with Steve Cunningham in 2013 remains the toughest boxer he has faced to date.

"I wouldn't say [Wilder] was the toughest fight," the Brit superstar said.

"I would say that was one of my easiest fights, to be fair. Other than the two knockdowns, it was a pretty one-sided fight.

"Yeah, my most difficult fights were much more harder than that. Deontay Wilder's not my toughest opponent -- that's for sure.

"My toughest opponent in my whole career was Steve Cunningham. He was a former cruiserweight champion. I fought him in 2013 in New York, Madison Square Garden, and that was the toughest fight I ever had."

Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder Snub One Another As They Name Their Toughest Opponents To Date

published at18 days ago

Wilder, 34, snubbed Fury as his toughest opponent to date by naming Luis Ortiz instead.

Cuban star Ortiz caused problems for the WBC kingpin during their initial clash in 2018, but Wilder emerged victoriously with a stunning 10th-round TKO victory.

And Wilder fought 'King Kong' in a rematch last November and secured a sensational seventh-round KO, despite being largely outboxed in the fight.

"When I fought Ortiz, not only did he have the pedigree, but also he had the classification of being the boogeyman of the division," the KO artist said.

"I agree with those who say that Luis Ortiz was my toughest fight to date. No-one wanted to fight him and they still don't."
