Prince Naseem Hamed believes Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world at present.
The British boxing legend admits he had doubts about the 30-year-old in the past, but is now a Fury convert after watching his performance against Deontay Wilder.
Despite the Wilder fight officially being scored a draw, Naz has no hesitation in stating the Brit won clearly.
“In my eyes, Tyson Fury has proved himself in an amazing fashion,” the ‘Prince’ told iFL TV.
“After coming back the way he came back, I haven’t really seen any heavyweight in a very, very long time do what he did.
“He showed his heart, he showed his skill, he showed his strengths, he showed his willpower, he showed his mental strength.
“I want to see him go on and still show how good he is because I don’t think we’ve seen it yet. I don’t think we’ve seen it all yet.
“I’d like to see him fight Anthony Joshua. I find it hard to actually see anybody right now beating Tyson.
“He showed it against the WBC champion, one of the hardest hitting men in the heavyweight division. For me he won that fight clearly.
The ‘Gypsy King’s’ next fight will be against Tom Schwarz on June 15 in Las Vegas as he opted out of the ordered Wilder rematch.
He has instead signed a co-promotional deal with Bob Arum’s Top Rank, alongside original promoter Frank Warren, and so future match-ups against Wilder and Joshua could prove difficult to make.
If they do come to fruition, Price Naseem sees only one possible outcome.
He continued: “For me Tyson Fury is at the forefront and he’s proved he’s the best heavyweight alive today.
“I’ve got Tyson Fury beating any heavyweight alive today. That is it.
“For me it’s clear cut, this is clear cut, Tyson Fury’s the best heavyweight alive today.”
