The endless trolling of WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) against a potential opponent in the fight at the end of the year Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) attracted the attention of another functionary. According to manager Egis Klimas, the Briton began to challenge Joshua for a fight, as he was allegedly afraid to go against his client Oleksandr Usyk, the IBF/WBA/WBO champion.
The argument is so-so, given that it was the Ukrainian who decided to take a break from boxing in the winter, in fact refusing to go against Tyson in December.
Nevertheless, Klimas wrote under Fury’s next video message to Joshua the following: “This is an excellent way to escape from Usyk – start calling others, but not answer Usyk. A laughing stock!”
Team Fury and Joshua are saying opposite things. So will there be a fight?
Fury, as far as we know, has not yet reacted to such an attack. Deliberately or simply did not notice – we will find out tomorrow.
Recall that Tyson called Usyk a “shit” for refusing to go against him before the end of the year. After that, Fury challenged Joshua, and he allegedly accepted it. Tyson even named two dates for the fight with Joshua.
Fury’s uncle and former trainer says he “fought the best in the world.” Do you agree?
