Tyson Fury believes he is the greatest heavyweight in boxing history and has vowed to beat Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder twice to prove his point.

Fury made his return from a two-and-a-half-year absence against Sefer Seferi in June, the Briton comfortably recording a fifth-round victory in Manchester.

It was Fury’s first fight since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 and represented the first step in his attempts to regain his world titles.

While Fury has been out of contention Joshua and Wilder have come to the fore, the pair holding the heavyweight straps Fury is so keen on winning back.

The 29-year-old is confident he will be on top of the world once again and told talkSPORT: “I will beat them [Joshua and Wilder] both twice. Just to show them how s*** they really are. I will beat them senseless.

“People may listen to this and say this man’s a lunatic, he’s been out for a year.

“But I’m the greatest boxer that’s ever lived in the heavyweight division.”

Fury rejected criticism that he did not take his return fight seriously and has no intention of changing his approach to future bouts.

“I’m an entertainer,” he added. “I’ve been told to take this fight serious and stop all the razzmatazz, but you know what? I can’t. I’m a natural showman.

“If I wanna put my hands down in the fight and play to the crowd and have a look and chat to a good looking woman at ringside, I will. It’s the Tyson Fury show and I do what I want.”
