Expect the unexpected. That’s how the legendary Hall of Famer Evander Holyfield describes reigning WBC titleholder Tyson Fury, who’s considered by many as the top dog in a stacked heavyweight division.

Fury (30-0-1, 21KOs) cemented his place at the top of the pile when he fought Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs) in their blockbuster rematch in February, flooring the previously undefeated American thrice on the way to a stunning 7th round TKO victory at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

That sensational performance completed the ‘Gypsy King’s magnificent journey back to the top of the heavyweight division, which was previously dominated by Holyfield in the 90s.

When asked who he views as the best heavyweight in the world, Holyfield told Sky Sports: “Tyson Fury. He can fight! The difference in people is how hard they work.

“He has long arms and throws shots that you don’t see. He can make adjustments. Boxing is mental – it’s about who is stronger in the mind, that outweighs physical things.

“People thought they could beat me because of how I look. With Fury, he doesn’t look like he can do it but he keeps proving that he can.”

The Print Project

A word from our sponsors HÖRFA Menswear:

Now, for the first time ever, we’re giving you the chance to create the next iconic print, in support of the NHS.

Your design can be anything you want, there are no set themes or limitations. Be inspired by nature, art, people, hope, ambition… your canvas is blank because we want to see your creativity in its fullness.

How to enter:

Visit our website HERE. We recommend submitted artwork is in the ratio of 210x140mm/px at 300dpi in .png or .jpg format. You can go taller than 140mm/px if you wish the design to be square or portrait. If you don’t have design packages or tools available, we recommend canva.com as a useful website to use.

Email your design to [email protected] by June 30, 2020, with a few words about the inspiration and meaning behind it.
