TYSON FURY has made a bold statement to the heavyweight devision as he sets his eyes on facing Deontay Wilder.
The 29-year-old is set for his second comeback fight against Francesco Pianeta on August 18 in Belfast.
Should he emerge victorious, a huge clash with WBC champion Deontay Wilder should be on the cards.
But the Gypsy King does not seem to fussed about what lies ahead.
Earlier today he sensationally claimed he is the best boxer to ever live in an interview with talkSPORT.
Speaking on potential fights with Wilder and Anthony Joshua, the lineal champ revealed: “I’ll beat them both twice just to show them how s*** they are.
“I will beat them senseless – people may listen to this and think I’m a lunatic.
“But I am the greatest boxer that has ever lived in the heavyweight division, and that is a statement.
“I’m 6ft 9in and 19 stone and I’m the greatest boxer that has ever lived.
“God has given me so much talent and ability to move, twist, bend and counter.”
A fight with Joshua looks unlikely, as the unified champion prepares for his bout against Alexander Povetkin on September 22.
He will then have eyes on meeting with Wilder.
Earlier on today David Haye revealed Fury could fight Dereck Chisora on his way back to the top of the division.
