Former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) has made some bold statements over the years, but his most recent even raised the eyebrows of his most loyal supporters.
In a recent video, Fury vowed to break Joe Louis' record of 25 consecutive title defences over the next 10 years.
Louis was heavyweight champion between 1937 and 1949.
Fury, who is training for a ring return, has been out of the ring since capturing the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA world titles from Wladimir Klitschko in November fo 2015.
He never made a defense of the titles - as Fury battled depression and substance abuse issues.
Since his departure, Anthony Joshua has claimed the WBA, IBF, IBO belts - and Joseph Parker holds the WBO title. Parker and Joshua will collide on March 31 in a unification.
"Wladimir Klitschko almost beat Joe Louis' record until I beat him. Even if I have three fights a year, I've beaten him. It's a hard challenge but I've never set a challenge I didn't make "If anyone is capable of doing it, I'm capable," Fury said.
Fury, who reclaimed his license to box, was slated to fight in April, but that appears to be a slim shot at the moment.
He recently warned that Joshua, Wilder and every other beltholder in the division was target in the near future.
“I opened the division up for all these heavyweights to have world titles. Joshua has been doing a good job of polishing my belts, keeping them nice and warm," Fury said.
“Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, whoever else, I'm coming for you I could probably fight this weekend. It's been a long time coming. I've been out a long time, two-and-a-half years.
"My ambition is to get in the ring again and get under those lights. I told them recently I want to get some baby oil on, shining, glistening, looking the part. Lifting a few weights now. I used to call Joshua a bodybuilder, but I'm starting to look like a bodybuilder now. Taking my protein shakes, getting to bed early and dreaming about smashing people's faces in.”
