Tyson Fury’s rise to the top is incredible after such a stinky start, says Carl Frampton

CARL FRAMPTON can’t believe Tyson Fury’s rise to stardom – from such a STINKER of a start.

Belfast’s two-weight world champion has followed the Gypsy King since 2008 when David Price knocked him into that year’s British Olympics team.

Frampton even interviewed fury at Wembley to look forward to his sell-out fight with Dillian Whyte on April 23.

The retired 35-year-old recalls a shady decision that saved Fury’s career – as well as the time the 6ft 9in star beat himself in the ring!

But for now, Frampton is just in awe of his legendary victories over Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder – and can’t see how Whyte can shock the WBC heavyweight king.

Frampton said: “Tyson absolutely proved himself. But I remember he made some shows stink.

“He made a lucky decision against John McDermott in his eighth fight.

“I saw him fall against Neven Pajkic – and this video where he cuts himself up!

“Tyson has always had a good boxing brain, but what we’re seeing now, that seek-and-destroy style from the Wilder wins, nobody knew he had that in his locker.

“It defies logic that he can be the size and shape he is and still box like he does.

“He’s so tall and has a belly, but he kind of moves like a ballerina.

“Also, he’s hitting like a truck now, he’s like a little guy on the front foot. It’s just an incredible story.

“I like Dillian, every heavyweight has a chance. But when I asked Tyson about that fight, he gave the answer I predicted – that as a smaller come-forward fighter, Dillian was made for him.

Becoming the undisputed heavyweight king is all that keeps Fury in boxing.

But Amnesty International has raised the possibility that Saudi Arabia could stage the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.

And Amnesty chief Peter Frankental said: “After Saudi authorities executed a shocking 81 people in a single day, it’s likely that Riyadh will see the glitz and raw hype surrounding Joshua-Usyk as a useful exercise in sportswear.”
