Tyson Fury and Muhammad Ali comparisons


Evelyn

Recommended Posts

The big thing going around right now is about Tyson Fury's career and how his achievements are equal to the achievements of Muhammad Ali. Do you agree? I think Fury is amazing in the ring, but no one will ever come close to Muhammad Ali's legacy.

These types of comparisons are hardly fair. I noticed that Fury's achievements are only said to equal Muhammad Ali's, not surpass them. That's because it's impossible to eclipse a legend, even if it's only nostalgia that makes it so.

Back in November 2015, Tyson Fury dethroned Wladimir Klitschko then started battling substance abuse and depression shortly after. He was able to bounce back and dethrone Deontay Wilder to claim the WBC Heavyweight title. Perhaps his willingness to discuss the mental health issues led to the comparison to the late Muhammad Ali, who openly talked about racial injustice.

Fury has won some impressive titles, just needs to medal at the Olympics, which is up in the air thanks to the coronavirus. Muhammad Ali was nominated for two Grammys, but I don't think he won. Maybe Fury could tie that honor with some sort of nomination for his reality programme.
