Boxing’s heavyweight division has a lot of buzz behind it these days, and it sounds like Khabib Nurmagomedov is  one of the many people who’s really invested in the division right now.

Recently the UFC’s lightweight champ attended a pre-fight presser for his upcoming, September 7th bout with Dustin Poirier. While discussing who he believes is the best, heavyweight boxer right now, Nurmagomedov said this (quote via MMA Junkie):

“I think best is Tyson Fury,” Nurmagomedov said. “In my opinion, like boxing, he’s the best right now, my opinion. Because you see his fight versus Wilder. Without the knockdown he beat him. Right now is not bad in heavyweight boxing. Andy) Ruiz, (Anthony) Joshua, (Deontay) Wilder, if (Wladimir) Klitischko come back, it’s very good heavyweight right now, heavyweight time.”

“But my opinion, Fury is the best maybe I’m wrong sorry about other guys like all of them respect all fo them but this is very good time for boxing heavyweight division.”

The champion Fury is scheduled to fight Tom Schwarz on Saturday, June 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
