The boxing world sat back, ate their popcorn, and watched Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua tear each other to shreds on Twitter yesterday and it was brilliant.
The former heavyweight world champion, Fury, called out Joshua and took several shots at the Watford-born fighter, most of which centererd around him being a 'paper champion'.
AJ will fight for the belts that Fury vacated last year after failing drug tests when he meets Wladimir Klitchsko at Wembley on April 29.
It seems as though Fury's cousin, Hughie Fury, is cut from very similar cloth.
Hughie has a date with Joseph Parker on the horizon for the WBo heavyweight title, but he has taken time to tear into David Haye after his loss to Tony Bellew first.
“I congratulated Tony Bellew on his win against David Haye as it was a big upset - He’s a great lad,” Fury exclusively told World Boxing News.
“I knew he was going to pull it off against David Haye, it was all about getting past the three or four rounds and after that I knew he’d be fine. He dug deep and deserved to win it, in the end”
On Haye’s actions, the 22-year-old added: “Haye disgraced himself with what he said in the build up to the fight with all the rubbish he said beforehand.
“You just don’t talk about the fans like that as they pay to watch fights and travel all over. It was very disrespectful and I was glad that Tony pulled it off,” he said.
Hughie did not agree with the way Haye went about his busines before the Bellew fight, but it was clear in the aftermath that it was a bit of bravado to sell the contest, even if he did go too far.
One would think with Parker in his sights, it might be a good idea to concentrate on that bout first and foremost.News Now - Sport News
