WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury has been told that he has “no boxing skills.”
Fury defeated Deontay Wilder in their thrilling trilogy fight back in October to reaffirm his credentials as the number one heavyweight fighter on the planet.
He remains on a collision course with either Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua, with fans crossing their fingers for an undisputed champion to be crowned this year.
While Fury may well become the first to achieve undisputed status in this heavyweight era, Frank Sanchez, 20-0, doesn’t think much of the Briton as a fighter.
“I knock him out easily. He has no boxing skills,” Sanchez said in a pretty scathing assessment of Fury, quoted by The Sun.
Sanchez is likely to be trying to ruffle feathers in the Fury camp, well aware that the Gypsy King’s next opponent is yet to be determined as talks with Dillian Whyte stall.
It seems unlikely that he’d be particularly high on the list for Frank Warren to call, were they to find themselves in need of someone to fight, but there’s no harm in trying.
Sanchez is on a steady ascent up the heavyweight division and ought to think carefully before agreeing to fight someone with Fury’s pedigree – it likely wouldn’t end well for him.
