Riddick Bowe Contemplates Comeback to Face Tyson Fury
In the world of heavyweight boxing, a legendary figure is hinting at a return from retirement to take on Tyson Fury. Riddick “Big Daddy” Bowe, a former undisputed champion, has expressed his desire to challenge Fury and “expose” him in the ring.
Tyson Fury, on the cusp of becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion with a highly-anticipated bout against Oleksandr Usyk in the pipeline, has grabbed the attention of the boxing world. However, before Fury can focus on the Usyk showdown, he is set to engage in a crossover spectacle with MMA star Francis Ngannou.
Riddick Bowe, who had a remarkable career and even defeated Evander Holyfield twice out of three fights, regrets that he never had the opportunity to face Lennox Lewis professionally, although they did compete for an Olympic Gold Medal in the amateurs. He considers the absence of a professional fight between them as one of the sport’s greatest missed opportunities.
The 56-year-old Bowe, who boasts a record of 43 wins and one loss, is confident in his abilities and envisions a strategy to take on Tyson Fury. He believes that he would mirror Fury’s movements and feints before delivering a knockout blow. Bowe, acknowledging the height difference, is inspired to make it a war in the ring.
While the boxing world eagerly awaits Fury’s matchup with Ngannou on October 28, a win for Fury would pave the way for the much-anticipated Usyk fight, with the potential for a surprise comeback by Riddick Bowe adding intrigue to the heavyweight division.
