Tyson Fury’s younger brother makes remarkable claim

Tyson Fury will “clean cup” the heavyweight division even at 40 per cent, according to his younger brother Tommy.

The 19-year-old is the latest member of the Fury family to be taking his boxing talents to the professional ranks with a debut on the undercard of the December 22 clash between Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton.

For the time being, all attentions are on Tyson as he attempts to complete a remarkable comeback with a win over Deontay Wilder to recapture the world heavyweight title.

After comparing his older brother to the great Muhammad Ali for his in-ring talents, the youngest Fury has backed him to lift the WBC belt aloft on December 1 and complete a stunning story.

“It’s a win in itself, to be honest,” Fury said, when asked about his brother’s fight at a press conference announcing his professional debut.

“He was 29 stone, rock bottom and you couldn’t get any lower. He’s won already because most people don’t come through that sort of thing.

“Tyson has had two comeback fights against relatively low opposition and he’s straight in line for the WBC world title. How many fighters can you say have done this?

“If anyone is to do it, it’s definitely Tyson. Because for me, if Tyson is 35 or 40 percent of the man he was in 2015, he’ll clean up here.

“He’s got too much skill for anybody. He’s nearly 7ft tall, 20 stone and he moves like a featherweight. I’ve never seen it before.

“(Maybe) Ali? – The Greatest of All Time – 15 stone and about six foot two. Tyson is a mammoth, he’s a giant and he moves just like him.

“So, for me at 30 or 40 percent he clears up – no problem.

“I couldn’t get no prouder, you know. Two fights and coming back from the pits of hell.

“Two years later and to be WBC champion, two-time champion of the world. Sounds good, doesn’t it?”
