Bold. Very bold.
Though Paul has won amateur fights against the likes of Ali Al-Fakhri, Nate Robison, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, he’s still yet to face a professional.
And the way Fury dismantled Wilder, despite being floored twice, shows he’s now somebody operating at the peak of his powers.
Fury is now adamant he is the greatest heavyweight of the modern era as he claimed his second victory over Wilder.
He said: “I’m now the greatest heavyweight of my era, without a doubt. No.1, numero uno. Look what I’ve done.
“I’ve came to America my last six fights and fought the most devastating puncher in the history of our sport.
“Not once, not twice, but three times. Danger, danger man.
“I was made for this s**t. Made for it. Proved time and time again, that I can never be written off.
“I can never be beat until I’m down and out.
“I didn’t have my best performance, but I pulled it out of the bag when it needed to be done.”
After the fight, Fury also revealed Wilder didn’t want a show of respect or sportsmanship.
He said: ”I just said to him ‘well done’ and he said ‘I don’t want to show any sportsmanship or respect.’
“I just said ‘no problem.’
“He’s a sore loser and idiot. Do you know what, to be a top fighting man you’ve got to show guts and respect.
“He couldn’t do that tonight and that was it. 100 per cent [would have been nice for him to say well done] but it’s up to him.
“I’m just thankful, we get out of the fight in one piece and we go home to our lovely families.”
The Bronze Bomber, meanwhile, admitted he ‘didn’t know what happened’ during his fight with Fury.
“I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight,” he said.
“I’m not sure what happened.
“I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer. He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”
