Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis have threatened to eat Tyson Fury for dinner.

Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis have threatened to eat Tyson Fury for dinner.

The Gypsy King has been told that the best heavyweights of the 1990s would eat him alive, and that he is competing in a much easier era.

In the eyes of some, Tyson Fury’s comeback story and undefeated career make him one of the best heavyweights in history.

Frank Bruno, on the other hand, is skeptical that the Gypsy King would be able to hold his own against some of the division’s stars during his fighting days.

Bruno put his friendship with Fury aside to claim that he is on a “different cloud” than when he was fighting.

He also doubts that the Briton could compete with the likes of Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis at their peak.

“He knows deep down in his heart that if he were around back then, they’d eat him for dinner and breakfast,” Bruno told DAZN.

“I’m not here to disparage Tyson Fury, but we’re in a different era.”

He’s on a different cloud than me.

“Good luck to him; he’s the best, and he deserves to be the best.

I have a lot of admiration for him.”

After retaining his WBC title against Deontay Wilder, Bruno shared his thoughts on the Gypsy King’s upcoming fight.

What do you think of Tyson Fury’s chances against the best heavyweights of the 1990s? Let us know in the comments.

Fury won the first of a three-fight series with the Bronze Bomber in Las Vegas, knocking out the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of a slugfest for the ages to extend his unbeaten professional record to 32 fights.

He was hoping to unify the division by fighting the winner of Anthony Joshua vs. Oleksandr Usyk’s rematch, but he still has one more hurdle to overcome.

The WBC has ordered him to face mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte, with the exact date yet to be determined.

Fury won’t be fighting Joshua in the blockbuster fight he wanted, but he will be fighting in one of the biggest all-British fights since Bruno lost to Lewis in 1993.

“It’s a good fight, Dillian Whyte is very powerful,” Bruno says of the fight.

Tyson Fury is a dangerous fighter who knows how to box.

“Dillian Whyte would never tell you what he’s learned.”
