Tyson Fury continues to bombard his rivals in the Heavyweight division. Since he’s not getting the fights he wants, he decided to step into the social media ring to throw some punches. His recent target was former WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Anthony Joshua.
Tyson’s FuryThe campaign to be the top social media bully continues. While Gypsy King still waiting to find out what’s next boxing match going to be, he invests his time in crushing his possible, or at least desired, rivals. Antoine Joshua was the latest victim of Fury’s acid humor.
the World Boxing Council (WBC) ordered Fury to face his compatriot Dillian Whyte as a mandatory fight to defend his world heavyweight title. However, it looks like the fight is far from settled. One of the main reasons is the purse offer deemed 80/20 in favor of Tyson.
The gypsy king is promoted by Best Bob Arum ranking and Frank Warren; Whyte’s promoter is match boxing Eddie Hearn. According to boxing scene, Arum has already sent a first offer to Dillian which guarantees not 20 but 25% of the purse, but it was refused because The mean one wants no less than $10 million.
Tyson Fury focuses on bothering Anthony Joshua on social media
Regardless of the bidding situation, the 33-year-old boxer didn’t show much enthusiasm against Dillian Whyte. Before fighting for the third time Deontay Wilder in October 2021, his publicly announced plan was to go up against Anthony Joshua, and that idea may not have left his mind, as he searches for a way to draw AJ Warning.
Tyson Fury has thrown another blow at Joshua on social media. His target: Anthony’s well-trained physique. It’s obvious that the gypsy king has many talents, but sculpting your body to have a low fat percentage is not one of them. However, he pointed out how Joshua’s bodybuilding appearance did nothing to help him retain his undefeated and world champion belts.
Fury’s flirtation with UFC champion Francis Ngannou continues
In his own words, what fully excites Tyson Fury isn’t the idea of facing Dillian Whyte, but playing a crossover against Francis Ngannou, UFC world heavyweight champion. The Cameroonian and the Briton have already exchanged words about it on social media and Tyson’s ‘promotion’ of the event continues.
“Think Clash of the Titans: Fury vs Ngannou. I am very excited, very excited. I think that would be an absolutely amazing fight. Vegas. The world would like to see the Clash of the Heavyweight Titans“Fury said on a video in which he tagged his promotion company Top Rank and Dana White’s UFC.
