Johnny Nelson Claims If Tyson Fury Puts His S**t Together He Beats Everyone
Former cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson believes Tyson Fury has the tools to beat every heavyweight alive.
Fury is coming off a rather lackluster fight against Francis Ngannou, as many expected the Brit to win with ease. However, Ngannou dropped Fury and the fight was very competitive, but in the end, it was Fury who won a split decision.
Since then, many fans have wondered if Tyson Fury is past his prime, but Nelson believes the Brit still beats everyone if he actually tries and cares about training.
“It’s time, you can’t do nothing about that. It might not be popular to say it but if his own pops is saying it, and one thing I will say about John Fury, is that he will always speak the truth,” Nelson told Pro Boxing Fans. He’s a straight-talking man. If he’s saying it you have to listen to him. But Tyson Fury, if he puts his sh!t together, he still beats everybody. His last performance, if he’s honest about what he said [that he had a full camp], then his legs are gone.
“If he wasn’t honest [about properly training], I think he can turn it around,” Nelson continued. “If he doesn’t fight February 17 then we have a problem. Because if his dad’s saying it now, it gives you a sense there might be a delay, they might want more time. I wouldn’t be surprised if they wanted to push it down the line a bit.”
Tyson Fury is expected to face Oleksandr Usyk in February for the undisputed heavyweight titles in a very intriguing matchup. It’s a competitive fight on paper, but Nelson believes if Fury does try and care he will beat Usyk with ease.
