Michael Coffie: New US heavyweight prospect vows to ‘go to England and bring the title back to the US!’

Michael Coffie won a battle of unbeaten US heavyweights and now says: “I like how Anthony Joshua carries himself. And Tyson Fury – I like the roughness he displays – but he wouldn’t be able to do that to me!”

On paper it may look that way. But I felt like I could beat him. I felt like I was levels above him. I already had the confidence that I needed.

I understood his strengths but I understood his weaknesses more than other people did. Maybe that’s why he was touted.

I looked at his weaknesses as more significant than his strengths.

He is quick-handed and has skill but his weakness is that he falls in. He gets too lax on the tie-ups – he expects to just hug and wait for the ref to break us up. Also, his fluctuation in weight – he lost 40lbs for this fight but that can be a bad thing because he lost strength too.
