Boxing Needs Tyson Fury
Some think his temperament might be a big problem and that he should be more self-deprecating, but I suspect he could care less what others think about him. All the rhetoric and loud mouthing is likely a load of blarney and he knows it better than anyone. Oh sure, he could take himself more seriously and embrace humility, but then he wouldn’t be Tyson Fury.
Maybe it’s the inherent Irish in him, but he possesses a wit. The thing is, he’s putting everybody on half the time, and it’s all a joke with him. Fury, and for that matter Deontay Wilder, is a showman. They are rarely at a loss for words or afraid to throw bold craziness out there. Heavyweight boxing hasn’t had this type in a long time. David Haye came close but he was too self-absorbed. In short, boxing needs guys like Fury and Wilder.
