Tyson Fury believes only one man could beat Jon Jones in MMA.
‘The Gypsy King’ believes Tom Aspinall, could very well be the only competition left for the legendary Jones.
Speaking to TNT sports Fury said:
“I’m bringing him in as a sparring partner in preparation for a UFC champion.
He’s a good fighter, probably could have made it as a pro boxer. I was quite sure he would have gone on and won a world championship, but he had a derailment with his knee, and that fell out, now he’s had his comeback trail.
“I think he can do it. He’s big enough, he’s got the power, he’s a black belt in jiu-jitsu.”
Fury then compared Aspinall to himself and Jones to Wladimir Klitschko as he continued:
“It’s a tough one. Jon Jones is the Tyson Fury of boxing.
“People are unable to beat him. Very tough one. Even though Tom Aspinall’s a mate, Jon Jones is probably considered the greatest of all time in MMA, so I don’t know.
“It’s probably like, can anyone beat Wladimir Klitschko before Tyson Fury beat him? Probably not, but then Tyson Fury beat him.
“If anyone can beat Jon Jones, it’ll be Tom Aspinall. Nobody else.”
