    Any heavyweight who fights Fury on his worst night, perhaps after a period of insufficient training plus private problems, etc.

    Basically, the new Buster Douglas.

    Or perhaps this man.

    Stylistically, it should be a shorter fighter, but not significantly outsized, who also has explosive punches and significant power and is quick enough to beat him to the punch with overhand right counters and someone who has proper head movement defense to avoid Furys punches.
    But then he also needs to be very athletic to get in and out properly without smothering his work and avoid getting tied up on the inside.
    Then he needs proper conditioning to do that in a 12 round fight, especially when Fury decides to do his mauling boxing at one point in case he gets beaten to the punch.

    You don't need a superhuman. You just need the style that won't suit him. Everyone's got one.

    Not a boxer. A really exceptional boxer would make it interesting, but I think his size and awkwardness probably wins out.

    Not an out and out puncher. He'll make them look stupid 9 times out of 10.

    A good sized Boxer/Puncher who isn't afraid to come forward and pressure is the style to get him. It's why I always thought he'd never face AJ, regardless of who I think would beat more of the other contenders. But AJ's unwillingness to come forward against Usyk has given me some doubts on that fight.

    The chin is a myth. He can be hit and he can be hurt. His footwork isn't great (except for his size). He doesn't throw big punches. But he is huge and good at most things.

    And then there's his discipline. Probably the greatest threat to him is himself.

    Who asked you? But seeing as you are here...I noticed you didn't mention any of Joshua's attributes like his feather fists and glass jaw.
