Mike Tyson named Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder among his top five boxers today, but did not include two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
Fury, who recently won the WBC heavyweight title in a rematch against Wilder, has always earned Tyson's respect since his return in 2018 and the former American heavyweight said he respects & # 39; the gypsy king. However, he did not mention Fury's next potential opponent and rival heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua when listing his current favorite fighters.
"I respect Tyson Fury, I respect Deontay Wilder, I respect all these guys," explained Tyson on his own podcast, Hotboxin.
Andy Ruiz too, this guy named (Vasyl) Lomachenko – he's a fucked up animal, man. He's a master, it's like he's dancing.
"There is also Gervonta Davis, there are a lot of guys who are good fighters."
Tyson went on to explain that boxing has become a very "political" sport and complained that promoters are not allowing the best to enter the ring against each other and give fans the fights they want to see.
He added: 'The situation is whether they will fight each other. Prosecutors are not allowing them to fight each other. I would love to see them fight, but prosecutors don't want to do that. & # 39;
((Boxing) is very political now. That's why I think in the next two months, you will find that there are new players in the game and that will be really serious. "
Tyson is preparing for a sensational comeback at the age of 53, after he mentioned that he would like to return to charity.
