Nurmagomedov recently told ESN News who he believes is the finest fighter in the world: “What are you doing right now? Tyson Fury, in my opinion, is the best.
“He was a heavyweight who was undefeated and had beaten everyone.
“Canelo [Alvarez], [Oleksandr] Usyk, [Terence] Crawford, and all of these guys are very tight.
“It’s just my opinion, but I think Tyson Fury is the best right now.”
And The Eagle would love to see Fury take on Oleksandr Usyk, the recently minted unified heavyweight champion.
“I genuinely want to witness Usyk against Fury,” he stated. It’s going to be a great fight.
“Tyson Fury, like him [Usyk], has excellent skill and technique.
“He’s not like other heavyweights; he has greater technique, excellent footwork, and excellent conditioning; I’m excited to see Usyk take on Fury.”
