Tyson Fury names Muhammad Ali and Lennox Lewis in list of five greatest boxers but no Mike Tyson…’Gyspy King’ claims he will beat them all

TYSON FURY has named Muhammad Ali and Lennox Lewis in his top five heavyweights of all time – but insisted he would beat them all.

The British star, 31, was in a far from modest mood when asked about the best boxers of all time.

While naming his top five, Fury revealed no one in the last “1,000 years” could beat him.

He even went on to call himself the best boxer EVER… across any weight category.

Despite that, the Gyspy King left himself off his top five heavyweights of all time list.

Fury told iFL TV: “My all-time five not including myself and in no specific order?

“Muhammad Ali, Larry Holmes, Lennox Lewis, Joe Louis and I’d probably put Rocky Marciano in there as well.”

However, the British star believes he would have been able to beat any of them – saying no one comes close to him at his peak.

Fury continued: “There isn’t a heavyweight from any era in the last thousand years that could’ve tackled me or beat me.”

While Fury’s list features some of the biggest names in boxing history, there was one glaring omission – Mike Tyson.

When quizzed over Iron Mike, the Gypsy King simply shrugged it off.

Fury added: “Never mind Mike Tyson from the 80s, Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Lennox Lewis, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Rocky Marciano, Floyd Patterson, Gene Tunney, Jem Mace, John L. Sullivan…

“Going right back to the beginning, not one of them could’ve beaten the Gypsy King.

“I’m too big, I’m too good, and I’ve got too many styles for them. I’m an adapter, and they couldn’t beat me anyway.

“I’m the greatest fighter that has ever lived.

“Never mind heavyweight, greatest fighter that’s ever lived.

“How about that for a bit of modesty!”

Fury recently revealed talks between himself and Anthony Joshua ahead of TWO fights are progressing well.

The all-British heavyweight unification clash will most-likely go ahead in 2021.
