LONDON – The agreement between promoters Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) and Anthony
Joshua (23-1, 21 KO) for the undisputed boxing match, which is to take place in the second
half of next year has stirred up boxing waters properly …
David Allen (18-5-2, 15 KO), a two-time unsuccessful challenger for the title of Commonwealth
Heavyweight Champion, who met both world champions in training camps, is clear: Tyson Fury
is the toughest boxer he has ever had in the ring met.
“He punches hard when he wants to. No one has ever hit me like that, “added the boxer
nicknamed” White Rhino “.
And in his hymn to the Manchester Giant, he continued: “To be honest, I think he’s enjoying his
talent, which will allow him to make life uncomfortable for other people in the ring, while still
causing them great pain. He could simply end them all with hard blows, but he enjoys slowly
destroying them. “
After a magnificent victory over Vladimir Klitschko in 2015, the native of Manchester
disappeared from the world of boxing for more than two years due to personal mental problems.
But after a stunning victory over the limit over then-WBC champion American Deontay Wilder
(42-1-1, 41 KO), he wrote his name in bold (not only) in the “Greatest Returns of All Time”
He added: “Undoubtedly, heavy weight will dominate. Joshua literally walks on his back. I know
I sound like a huge fan of his now, but don’t be surprised, I’m really a big fan of his. It’s a huge
talent from God. “
After all, Allen confirmed this fact in the interview only by saying that although he was supposed
to evaluate the qualities of both of his compatriots, who had invited him to their camps in the
past, he was actually only talking about “Gypsy King”.
If they both actually sign a contract for the two fights, fans will only see a second match for the
heavyweight title, in which two Britons will face each other. This would be the fourth time in
history that Lennox Lewis had fought Frank Bruno and Henry Akinwand during his reign, and
David Haye had fought Audley Harrison.
But for the first time, the belts of all four of the most prestigious federations – WBC, WBA, IBF
and WBO – could be in the game … Who will control it? Despite Fury’s great admiration, David
Allen cannot say clearly: “I don’t know who will win the match, but I know who I will wish for.”
And many others probably think the same way …
