Following the lead of The Independent’s Fantasy Matchmaker, MM match up two British heavyweight kings past and present: Lennox Lewis and Tyson Fury.
Tyson Fury said he’d go to London and beat Dereck Chisora in 2011. He said he’d go to Dusseldorf and beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. He said he’d go to Los Angeles and beat Deontay Wilder in 2018. And he said he’d go to Las Vegas and beat Wilder again in 2020.
