Frank Warren: ‘Unique’ Tyson Fury goes into other guy’s yards, takes titles
Frank Warren took time to lavish praise on Tyson Fury ahead of the British heavyweight’s United States challenge.
Fury faces undefeated wrecking ball, Deontay Wilder, on December 1 in a bid to win the only title to avoid him during his career.
Warren, who has overseen Fury’s comeback, heaped special attention on his star man.
“Tyson is a unique boxer — there’s no doubt about that in his unique style. (He’s a) Former WBA/IBF/WBO and the current lineal champion” pointed out Warren.
“His trials and tribulations have been well documented. But if you look at him now and look where he’s at, he’s come quite a long way.
“He knows there were problems he had in early life, but he’s showing what a man he is by coming back and putting himself into a position now where I think he looks the best he’s ever been as far as everybody’s concerned who knows him. And that’s both mentally and physically.
“He is doing what he always does. Going to the other guy’s backyard and getting titles, this time titles that he never lost. He’s, without a doubt, in my opinion, one of the best British heavyweight champions of all time.
“He’s undefeated, and he’s a man on a mission. He’s in a position where a lot of people would hate to be where he was, the lowest you could ever be. But he’s come back with all the strength and character, and he’s here in the most fantastic physical shape and maybe in his best mental shape as well.
“So I think we’re going to get a great fight. He’s a great fighter, a great champion, and he’s undefeated. I think he’s going to show what he’s really worth.
“Is he as good as everybody thinks he is? This is, without a doubt, the toughest fight he’s ever going to have.
“Tyson wants to show the world that he is the best out there, and it’s going to be a great fight and we’re looking forward to it,” he added.
At 30 years old, Fury has to make up for lost time, having spent 30 months in the wilderness before his April return.
History beckons if Fury can do the seemingly impossible on the back of previously dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
