Tyson Fury is renowned for his out of the ring antics. For some time, he was renowned as the trash-talking champion of the heavyweight boxing scene.
Now, though, he can also be referred to as the WBC heavyweight champion, whilst still keeping his title of the king of trash talking.
Seldom has the Gypsy King refrained from voicing his opinion about his fellow heavyweight competitors. In fact, there isn’t many left in the division he hasn’t slammed on social media. Watch this space…
He has a particular habit of taking to Instagram to post stories about any upcoming opponents he might have. Though, of course, not all of his victims have turned out to be actual opponents. It seems that the 31-year-old is willing to call out anybody.
From his longevity with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua to established cruiserweight Tony Bellew and even to boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, it seems no one is safe from being labelled as a bum or a dosser.
So, without further ado, here is the hilarious compilation of Tyson Fury’s best send-outs on Instagram:
His favourites to call out, Joshua and Deontay Wilder. Fury had his eyes locked and his gloves set on the latter for quite some time until he finally got his chance on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
After the bout ended in a controversial draw, Fury took to Instagram to vent more frustration towards the American and pretty much predicted how the second fight would pan out. “You know you lost; I’m coming for you.”
Even before the first fight, the compilation captures Fury calling Wilder “chinless”, vowing to put his “fists right through” him which is – in turn – what happened on February 22 2020 when Wilder was sent to the canvas for the first time in his career.
However, not everything Fury has declared on Instagram has been totally accurate. In the compilation, he calls Tony Bellew Liverpool’s worst, Jarrell Miller a fat boy (who he’d put down seven times), calls one of the former greats, Wladimir Klitschko, useless and threatens to knockout Dillian Whyte within six rounds… twice on a Sunday.
Joshua particularly sees his fair share of insults. After offering to help him learn how to box, Fury then declares the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO championship belt-holder a bum and vows to jab his face off in what would be the easiest night’s work of his life.
Throughout the two minutes of antics, Fury manages to fit in just the five ‘dossers’ and five ‘bums’: phrases that have become inherently associated with the Gypsy King.
