Shame about his mental health. 
 

He’s level headed for 5 mins with his bipolar, not surprised, being the greatest in the world one minute, then trying to live a normal family life the next. 
 

Felt sorry for his wife and kids, one minute going on holiday, the next it’s cancelled at the last minute and all the kids have to unpack their bags and go to bed.

Like the majority of others I have been deeply sceptical about Fury. I am sceptical no longer.

I’ll celebrate anyone who makes progress with their mental health but I find it difficult to like him.

A good mate's son-in-law used to spar with Tyson Fury. He says he is a smashing lad. I appreciate he has issues and his mood swings must be hard on his family, but when he is not depressed, he seems a genuine lad.

I agree with you he is the best at the moment but I don't think he would have got past round five with Mike Tyson.

And Mike Tyson would not have got past round 3 with Ali in his prime years

Anyone who knows boxing will know that sport rarely goes backwards, Mike Tyson would have killed Ali and Tyson fury would beat either of them everyday of the week, he's virtually in a different weight division.

He won the Heavyweight title at 20 yrs old and continued to unify all 3 titles.Winning 50 of his 58 fights , 44 by KO , only losing 6 fights which was at the end of his career. Dont think we will see the likes of him again.

Well we’ll never know will we! Having watched all of them fight whilst in their prime on TV......to try to judge them now, one against the other, is impossible!........All were the worlds best fighters “in their day”.....

Iron Mike was a great, no doubt about it, but there's equally no doubt what so ever, he'd not even be a contender in today's heavy weight division, he'd be a David Haye, a good boxer not physically big enough to compete with the big boys.

From what I remember Tyson was a complete animal, and had speed far beyond anything that we'd seen at the time.

I'd have a cheeky fiver on him against anyone out there today.

Pretty sure that Tyson was the most devastating Boxer the world has ever seen - to state that Fury could beat him is pure folly.

Its certainly a fight I'd be happy to pay for on pay per view, both great fighters .

Although the original Tyson, would be my favourite,  Fury likes to keep opponents at range,  Tyson goes in to finish.

Most of Iron Mike’s ‘victims’ were intimidated by him......beaten before they got in the ring........

People are of course entitled to their opinion, but Tyson would loose badly in today's division and Ali wouldn't even be in it, I love nostalgia and I would never take away from what the greats of the sweat science achieved in their era's, but they wouldn't be effective competition today, people who know the sport wouldn't be disagreeing with me.
