It was quite a weekend for boxing fans.

The eagerly anticipated bout between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury was finally played out in front of a packed Staples Center in LA.

The viewers were treated to 12 action-packed rounds, with Fury being knocked to the ground twice whilst also playing up to the crowd in a way that only the Gypsy King can do.

There were only two disappointments from the fight.

The first was the result, with many feeling that Fury had done more than enough to secure the victory on points.

The second was that any hope of seeing Anthony Joshua in the ring with one of Wilder or Fury anytime soon have been dashed.

Fury called Joshua a “chicken” directly after the fight, with many in the boxing world feeling that AJ has been dodging the difficult challenges that Wilder and Fury represent.

And Joshua has now added more fuel to the fire, after strangely liking a tweet claiming that he had no intention of fighting either heavyweight.

The tweet read: “He will say he’s disappointed as the rematch will happen first but in truth I believe he will be happy. He didn’t want to fight wilder and won’t face fury, I personally don’t think he could beat either.”

And just for proof that AJ has actually liked this tweet, you can see it down below.


Joshua has so far kept quiet in the hours after the events of Saturday night, but his promoter Eddie Hearn did tweet claiming that he had Fury “winning this” ahead of the result being revealed, before tweeting: “The main thing I’ve got to say is how can a judge score that 115-111 to Wilder."

However, Hearn has yet to mention anything on the Joshua-front at this stage.

In the meantime, boxing fans will have to continue to guess as to Joshua’s intentions by liking the tweet and will have to keep on waiting before they can see Joshua step into the ring with Wilder or Fury.

A rematch is expected to take place between the Bronze Bomber and the Gypsy King, a contest that Joshua will be watching closely.
