Sky Bet

Legendary trainer Emanuel Steward believes that Tyson Fury has the potential to be the best heavyweight fighter in the world.

Steward has trained two of the most prominent heavyweight champions of recent times - Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko.

And he expects unbeaten 22-year-old, whose next outing will be on February 19, to develop in much the same way as those two fighters have done and go on to dominate the division.

Steward also thinks that Fury's colourful personality can help breathe some new life into the heavyweight ranks.

"Tyson Fury has the ability and I think in my expectations will be the next superstar dominant heavyweight much along the lines of Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko," he told Sky Sports' Ringside programme.

"The way that he's progressing now I believe he can be maybe the complete package for the heavyweight division because of his talent, he's good looking guy and very colourful personality, I think he can be a tremendous shot in the arm for the heavyweight division in the future."
