Tyson Fury has his say on war of words between Anthony Joshua and Lennox Lewis


It seems as if Tyson Fury has an opinion on everything.

The latest topic he has weighed in on is the recent war of words between Anthony Joshua and Lennox Lewis.

The pair used to be close, but their relationship has turned sour in recent months, leading to the fallout.

Since retiring, Lewis has taken steps into the world of punditry and his comments regarding Joshua taking fights for money seemed to irk the British heavyweight, with AJ stating that he didn’t respect him, adding that he was a “clown”.

Regarding the situation, the Gypsy King remarked that it was interesting how their relationship had changed, but insisted that it’s not his concern.

“I’ve seen a little bit of s*** going on between him and Lennox,” Fury told Behind The Gloves, as per The Sun.

“I think it’s kind of cool, very cool, because them two were like, ‘oh he’s a great champion - he’s a great champion, I love you more, no I love you more,’ for ages, now they’re like, ‘he’s a clown, he’s a clown.’

“I don’t really take too much to it to be honest, it’s not really my concern, it is what it is, bulls***.”

Fury’s next bout will come against Otto Wallin in September, with many fans expressing how underwhelming the announcement was after so much talk of a rematch with Deontay Wilder.

One of Fury’s main critics for his choice of opponent was Joshua, who claimed that people of Fury’s ability shouldn’t be “fighting them type of people.”

The Gypsy King wasn’t ever going to take that lying down, firing back at Joshua in emphatic fashion.

“What about Andy Ruiz then? Was he a top-tier heavyweight when he fought him, got knocked out by him,” Fury queried.

“No, he wasn’t the answer to that question, nobody knew who Andy Ruiz was, he was a two week replacement opponent.

“People only become somebody by getting an opportunity and a break and seizing it with both hands.

“This time last year Andy Ruiz was nobody, absolutely f****** nobody and today he’s heavyweight champion of the world so if he wasn’t given the opportunity on two weeks notice then nobody would still know his name.

“He [Joshua] contradicts himself quite a lot, so AJ you must think before you speak you little p****.”

That clears that up then.
