Tyson Fury Fumes at Anthony Joshua: “He’s an idiot and I’ll knock him out”

The current WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, seems to have regained the desire to continue fighting after in his most recent fight in April where he knocked out Dillian Whyte, he said he was thinking of retiring.

In recent days he has launched several challenges to Anthony Joshua, former heavyweight champion of the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO versions, who will seek to regain his belts against Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk on August 20. During the fight, “Gipsy King” issued a mocking challenge to his compatriot.

Tyson Fury’s threats

“Anthony Joshua is an idiot and I will knock him out. If he beats Usyk, he has to fight me for free in England, for the fans. Not for hundreds of millions overseas or in a foreign country, let it be here in the UK,” said Tyson Fury.

Fury even requested that the show be broadcast on free TV and with free tickets, to give the British fans a new treat, similar to the big show Fury put on in his fight against Whyte at Wembley.

“It would be seen by 30 million people for free. That you don’t win for money. Let’s do this for the UK fans. Let’s see who the real man of the people is. I know I am, that’s why I’m willing to do it for free in the UK,” Fury said. “He won’t want to do that, he’ll want to travel overseas because he’s a businessman. And I don’t give a fuck about business.”

The only condition Fury requested is that Joshua stands up and regains his belts against Usyk, although in general, the boxing world does not have much confidence in Joshua’s quality, as did Mexican Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez, who said that if he moved up in class he would challenge him because he is the most affordable opponent for his style.

Joshua doesn’t want to beat Usyk?

For his part, Fury assured that Joshua doesn’t want to beat Usyk and that he even offered to train him to get him in great shape for their rematch fight, but AJ rejected the proposal.

“I would train him very easy to beat Usyk, but he doesn’t want my help because I would definitely train him to win and he obviously doesn’t want to win,” Fury said.

Should Usyk retain his belts and wish to unify against Fury, “Gipsy King” initially warned that he would ask for a $500 million purse to put the gloves back on because he already felt “tired.”

So the second alternative he gave to accept the challenge is a free fight completely open to everyone.
