A hysterical video of lineal champion Tyson Fury commentating on the heated 2016 face-off between Anthony Joshua and Dominic Breazeale has re-emerged on Twitter this afternoon.
The eagerly anticipated rematch between Deontay Wilder and ‘The Gypsy King’ is edging closer after the WBC champion’s manager Shelly Finkel confirmed that talks should conclude next week.
The giant Mancunian is expected to touch gloves with his American rival in the rematch of the century on May 18 in New York.
Talks between both parties were initially delayed by discussion, not only of the financial split, but also the choice of venue.
The fabled Madison Square Garden is expected to be the confirmed location with rumours flying that Fury could take home as much as £20 million from the clash.
Fury was robbed of one of the greatest comebacks in boxing history when judges controversially scored December’s bout against Wilder as a draw.
However, ‘The Gypsy King’ is confident that his hand will be raised as winner in the next outing, after which, he will the turn his attention to the IBF, WBA and WBO title holder Anthony Joshua.
Fury took to social media to ridicule his British rival and voiced his displeasure with Joshua’s calm and docile nature when he faced-off against American Breazeale back in 2016.
Anthony Joshua will fight in the US for the first time when he defends his three world title straps against Jarrell Miller on June 1.
Joshua, 29, will take on Miller at Madison Square Garden in the undefeated American’s home city of New York.
Miller, 30, has never fought for a world title and will almost certainly be the heaviest opponent Joshua has faced as a professional, having weighed 22st 7lbs in his last contest.
Meanwhile, Dillian Whyte and Breazeale have been ordered to fight by the WBC for an interim heavyweight title.
Both Whyte and Breazeale have suffered the only defeat of their career at the hands of Joshua, and victory for either would put them in contention for a world title shot.
Breazeale has strung together three victories to boast a record of 20-1-18KO, while Whyte has won on nine occasions to improve his overall record to 25-1-18KO.
