Promoter Eddie hearn pointed out that it makes him very strange that Tyson fury get on the listings Pound for pound, despite fighting and beating the same rival, Deontay Wilder, for two and a half years.

“It seems strange to me that you can continually climb a ranking Pound for pound beating the same fighter you beat two and a half years ago, “he said. Hearn on the podcast Boxing with Chris Mannix. “But, if you check the rankings of ESPN, Tyson fury beat Deontay Wilder, who just knocked out (seven) rounds in an all-out war, and suddenly jumps up the pound-for-pound rankings. “

Eddie hearn believes that in order to climb the Pound for Pound charts, fighters like Tyson fury They must have a brilliant record.

“To be a great heavyweight, you must have a brilliant resume that consistently outperforms the best heavyweights of your day,” he notes. Hearn. “Now, let’s not take anything away from his performance (of Fury upon Wilder), to his last two performances. Probably, (Fury) will not be happy with the last (fight) because it looked a little crazy. But it was a great fight.

“It is very difficult to say something negative about Tyson fury right now, ”he said Hearn. “Because they are going to tell you that you criticize because you are bitter.”

Eddie Hearn sees shortcomings in Tyson Fury’s career

The promoter despite the record held by the Gypy king ensures that there are still holes in the English curriculum.

“I don’t see how you can become a great fighter in your generation without beating those who might be perceived as better fighters in your division than the fighter (Wilder) whom you defeated in the last three fights, “he said. Eddie hearn. “It is not his fault that he had to fight Wilder in the last three fights. But he has fought the same individual. So it’s hard to say that this is a great generational (boxer) because he has two good wins or two good fighters on his resume. They are Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder. I am not saying that others are not good. But I’m talking about elite victories, in the top five. “

In the same way, he made it clear that for him, Fury He’s not number one in heavyweights today.

“You know, I think he’s a great heavyweight in his generation, I think so. But I don’t think he has the resume to stand there and say that, ”Hearn added. “I still think that our man (Anthony Joshua) is the best heavyweight in the world. But right now, it’s hard to convince people otherwise. “
