Tyson Fury is without doubt one of the greatest heavyweights!

I love boxing, I hate casual boxing fans! Tyson Fury is a victim of ignorance of the sport. All these so called boxing fans come out with comments like “he’s boring,” “he’s shit” all that shit have no idea what they are talking about. Tyson Fury is probably the most naturally talented heavyweight I have ever seen. I love Ali but I struggle to see a way even the great Ali could beat him. I know some boxing fans will point at the fact that Fury has been dropped twice against so called “light punchers” in fights he should not have been dropped and many believe he even lost to John McDermott in the first fight not sounding like a GOAT. But boxing is a strange sport Tyson Fury is a better boxer than he is fighter. When he was young he was too quick to get in to a fight instead of using his jab, size and speed as he did against Wladimir Klitschko. Wladimir Klitschko is a great fighter but Fury made him look terrible.

I like Anthony Joshua but I honestly believe if Fury can get back to the shape and condition he was in when he beat Wladimir Klitschko Fury will outbox Joshua or Wilder. Both will have a punchers chance but Fury has speed, size, power, strength and skill.

The one fighter I think could cause Fury problems is a prime Mike Tyson. I’m not necessarily saying Tyson is better than Ali but styles make fights Tyson’s head movement, speed, power and compactness probably makes him a tougher fight for Fury than Ali would be.

I hope Fury can get back to his best, he is another one of the hated heavyweights. Like Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. Fury is hated by the establishment and like in the case of  Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson he is hated because of a mixture of racism and the fact he has an opinion. The media are good at projecting the establishments hate on to the public.

If you look at all the great heavyweights from Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Sonny Liston, Ali, Frazier, Foreman, Holmes, Tyson, Holyfield, Lewis and Klitschko’s. Its hard to imagine most of them beating him I still think a prime Lewis and Tyson would have been he’s two toughest. I might be wrong but I believe the others would struggle to cope with his size, speed and skill.

I hope he gets fit again because the heavyweight division needs him, after watching fight Seferi its clear he still needs more to lose more weight and have a few more fights before fighting Wilder or Joshua but if he can get busy and fit again I believe Tyson Fury could be dominant in the heavyweight division.

Like I said earlier the reason Tyson Fury does not get the credit or recognition he deserves this due the the protection of the establishments hate for him. Did you hear the HBO commentary when he beat Klitschko? Only Roy Jones Jnr given Tyson Fury credit. Max Kellerman and Jim Lampley were not willing to give any credit whatsoever, I thought they were disgraceful. I’ve seen it from Jim Lampley before for example when Barrera, just before the final bell he shown how biased and racist he can be. Even George Foreman picked him up on it and in replays of the fight HBO have cut out his last few sentences (so if you do look for it you need to find a recorded live version and not a updated version replayed years later on HBO.

Tyson Fury also gets stick from the mainstream media in the UK. Reason? They hate the truth, he has said the truth.

 

Is Tyson Fury the new Muhammad Ali?

Boxing and politics always seem to get their wires crossed. From Jack Johnson and the Great White Hope, Joe Louis fighting “the racist Nazi” Max Schmeling when Joe Louis himself was seen as nothing more than a second class citizen. Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston, Mike Tyson and many other boxers have like Jack Johnson ended up having to fight the ruling elite outside the boxing ring as well as their opponents inside the ring.

Tyson Fury is the latest example of a heavyweight champion that is universally hated for his controversial but honest and very true take on modern day society. Like nearly all the great heavyweights Tyson Fury comes from oppression, he is seen by many (not me) as a second class citizen. He said himself that he would always be seen as “just a dirty gypo” and unfortunately its true. Like Muhammad Ali, Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston and too many others Tyson Fury is fighting ignorance, the media and the establishment as well as the brainwashed.

I watched Wladimir Klitschko vs. Tyson Fury with HBO’s and Sky Sports commentary. HBO hate to give Tyson Fury any credit whatsoever, Jim Lampley repeatedly puts the fight down to a poor performance from Wladimir Klitschko. They blamed the age of Wladimir Klitschko who was 4o. Only Roy Jones Jnr gave credit to Fury as he kept informing Jim Lampley that Tyson Fury was confusing Wladimir Klitschko with movement and faints.

Sky Sport was not as blatantly anti Tyson Fury as HBO but they were also blaming the “poor performance” and “age” of Wladimir Klitschko. Wladimir Klitschko proved in his next fight that age had very little to do with anything as he put on a fine performance and nearly knocked out the golden boy of British Boxing at the moment Anthony Joshua.

If the right boxer was to naturalize and confuse Wladimir Klitschko the way that Tyson Fury did they would have received credit and hype from the mainstream media. Tyson Fury is not the right boxer, casual boxing rule the market and they want knockouts and blood but the real art of boxing has always been hit without getting hit and that is what Tyson Fury managed to do against Klitschko.

Like in the past with Muhammad Ali and Jack Johnson and others the establishment are using the media to spread hate for the exact same reasons they always do.

Somebody has managed to fight their way against the odds out of poverty and oppression and gained a following. All Tyson Fury does is say what a million people already believe the only difference is when Tyson Fury says it it gets heard.

How dare some know nothing middle class wannabe upper class muppet that has never done a proper days work in their lives complain because a message they don’t like and are not used to hearing gets heard. The problem is not Tyson Fury, Gypsies or the poor speaking out the problem is the establishment.

The reason so many people in Britain are attacking Tyson Fury is much the same reason white America turned on Muhammad Ali, Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston and even Mike Tyson. That reason is because they have a feeling of superiority, they are ignorant, racists that live in cloud cuckoo land and they fear anybody that is different.

I believe that in this time of sell outs and corporate whores Tyson Fury should be applauded for having the balls to say what many of us know. I’m not saying I agree with EVERYTHING he says but I agree with him much more than I agree with the people that think they have the right to silence him.

Muhammad Ali = THE GREATEST.

ALI

Vietnam War and resistance to the draft

In 1964, Ali failed the U.S. Armed Forces qualifying test because his writing and spelling skills were sub-par (he was quoted as saying, “I said I was the greatest, not the smartest!”).[94] However, in early 1966, the tests were revised and Ali was reclassified as 1A.[20] This classification meant he was now eligible for the draft and induction into the United States Army during a time when the U.S. was involved in the Vietnam War.

When notified of this status, Ali declared that he would refuse to serve in the Army and publicly considered himself a conscientious objector.[20] Ali stated: “War is against the teachings of the Holy Qur’an. I’m not trying to dodge the draft. We are not supposed to take part in no wars unless declared by Allah or The Messenger. We don’t take part in Christian wars or wars of any unbelievers.” More succinctly and famously he said, “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong – no Viet Cong ever called me Nigger.” The statement articulated, for many people, a reason to oppose the war.[95]

Appearing for his scheduled induction into the U.S. Armed Forces on April 28, 1967 in Houston, Ali refused three times to step forward at the call of his name. An officer warned him he was committing a felony punishable by five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. Once more, Ali refused to budge when his name was called. As a result, he was arrested. On the same day the New York State Athletic Commission suspended his boxing license and stripped him of his title. Other boxing commissions followed suit. Ali would not be able to obtain a license to box in any state for over three years.[96]

At the trial on June 20, 1967, after only 21 minutes of deliberation, the jury found Ali guilty.[20] After a Court of Appeals upheld the conviction, the case went to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the years between the appellate court decision and the Supreme Court verdict, Ali remained free. As public opinion began turning against the war and the Civil Rights movement continued to gather momentum, Ali became a popular speaker at colleges and universities across the country, rare if not unprecedented for a boxer. At Howard University, for example, he gave his popular “Black Is Best” speech to 4,000 cheering students and community intellectuals, after he was invited to speak by sociology professor Nathan Hare on behalf of the Black Power Committee, a student protest group.[97][98]

On June 28, 1971, the Supreme Court in Clay v. United States overturned Ali’s conviction by a unanimous 8-0 decision (Justice Thurgood Marshall did not participate).[99] The decision was not based on, nor did it address, the merits of Ali’s claims per se; rather, the Court held that since the Appeal Board gave no reason for the denial of a conscientious objector exemption to Ali, and that it was therefore impossible to determine which of the three basic tests for conscientious objector status offered in the Justice Department’s brief that the Appeals Board relied on, Ali’s conviction must be reversed.[100]

Impact of Ali’s stance

Ali’s example inspired countless black Americans and others. New York Times columnist William Rhoden wrote, “Ali’s actions changed my standard of what constituted an athlete’s greatness. Possessing a killer jump shot or the ability to stop on a dime was no longer enough. What were you doing for the liberation of your people? What were you doing to help your country live up to the covenant of its founding principles?” [9]

Recalling Ali’s anti-war position, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said: “I remember the teachers at my high school didn’t like Ali because he was so anti-establishment and he kind of thumbed his nose at authority and got away with it. The fact that he was proud to be a Black man and that he had so much talent … made some people think that he was dangerous. But for those very reasons I enjoyed him.”[101]

Ali inspired Martin Luther King, Jr., who had been reluctant to address the Vietnam War for fear of alienating the Johnson Administration and its support of the civil rights agenda. Now, King began to voice his own opposition to the war for the first time.[102]

In speaking of the cost on Ali’s career of his refusal to be drafted, his trainer Angelo Dundee said, “One thing must be taken into account when talking about Ali: He was robbed of his best years, his prime years.”[103]

Ali’s resistance to the draft was covered in the 2013 documentary The Trials of Muhammad Ali.
