After several thrilling bouts, the banner division might just have entered that golden era we’ve been dreaming of. Matt Christie examines the current field


England, 30 years old, 28-0-1 (20)


An impressive two-round blitzing of Germany’s Tom Shwarz hopefully achieved two things: Firstly, the exhibition makes Fury a top attraction in the USA and, secondly, it should lead to the sacking of whoever in the WBO ratings committee sanctioned Schwarz’s placement at No. 2 in the world.


With a rematch against WBC champion Deontay Wilder in the offing for early next year, Tyson is expected to return on September 28 in New York. The disgraced Jarrell Miller is among the favourites to get the gig even though he should not be allowed near a boxing ring. Sadly, in 2019, it’s sellable. Add to that Fury likely bamboozling Miller and you can see why Top Rank would make it.


Aside from the charisma he oozes when in the right mood, Fury’s boxing skills are the best in the division. He gets the most out of his 6ft 9ins frame while remaining light on his feet, and can whack when he plants them. That ability to switch stances at any moment might just be the ace in his pack. Oh, and having Top Rank overseeing his development in the USA isn’t too shabby, either.
