Wayne Rooney comments on Fury’s win
Wayne Rooney spoke to talkSPORT afterward, regarding Fury’s comprehensive win over Chisora. He was ringside during the match, and said, “He’s the best we’ve seen for a long time, I don’t think anyone will beat him. He’s an absolute legend, his skills are incredible. Being honest, I probably think he should be knighted.”

The ex-Manchester United forward wanted Fury to be knighted because of his services to the sport of boxing. Rooney continued his praise for the heavyweight champion, “He hasn’t been afraid to go abroad, he’s won titles abroad, defended them abroad. He sums up and optimizes everything boxing is.”
Although Fury had hinted at retirement earlier this year, he came out and fought Chisora. Additionally, Fury said he might be part of some other fights in the near future. Despite his outstanding record, there are many who feel Fury is not one of the greatest boxers in history.
