The newly crowned WBC heavyweight king of the world Tyson Fury is clearly not a firm believer of the agenda that Deontay Wilder is the biggest puncher in the history of boxing.
Fury, 31, outboxed Wilder last February in Las Vegas, claiming the WBC belt in the highly anticipated rematch between the two. The American has said on numerous occasions that he has the most fearsome punching power in the history of the “sweet science”, but “The Gypsy King” knows a guy who hits harder than the American.
“So to say it’s the biggest punch in history, I’m not really sure because I didn’t get hit by all the guys in history. But, you know, I don’t think he punches harder than Wladimir Klitschko. Wladimir has a massive knockout punch and won a lot more fights than Wilder has.
“Wilder, I don’t think it’s so much his power. It’s the speed it lands at, which can be tricky when you don’t see it coming. But then again, even a guy who’s got no knockout ratio, if he hits you and you don’t see it coming, then he’s going to put you down.”
The Brit knows pretty damn well exactly how hard both guys punch because he fought them. Klitschko got totally outclassed in 2015 while Wilder got mauled by Fury, as a third fight between the pair will happen this summer.
