But legendary Tyson has now narrated how he would defeat Fury as he stressed the importance to be “close” to him and not “stay at a distance.”
Speaking to Ring Magazine in 2020, Iron Mike said via GiveMeSport:
“Against someone of Tyson Fury's size, you've got to be aggressive, move your head and be elusive because if you stand still against a man that size, you're an easy target.
“You need to attack, use angles and stay away from his punching distance. You need to be close, but you can't stay at a distance that allows the bigger fighter to get off.
“Size and style isn't the most important thing in the ring; it's the morale of a fighter that leads to victory. His determination, his will to win, his desire is what makes him a champion.”
