Tyson Fury shared on social media yesterday what he believes four of his potential challengers: Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Andy Ruiz Jnr. and Dillian Whyte all have in common.
The current WBC heavyweight champion posted on Instagram a collage of him wearing a crown in the centre surrounded by the other four fighters and the ‘stay at home’ symbol.
‘The Gypsy King’ wrote: “The below 4 all have the same in common, ALL LOST,” followed by a laughing emoji.
Fury sensationally stopped Wilder via TKO in the seventh-round to secure the WBC belt back in February that ensured the American was defeated for the first time in a boxing ring.
The fighter from Alabama, however, is looking to avenge his only professional loss in a trilogy fight with the Brit later in 2020. October is at the moment looking the most likely month, which the fight will take place.
Another of Fury’s potential opponents, who holds the other world titles is the Watford-born Anthony Joshua. Joshua did lose his world titles in June last year in a shock defeat to American Andy Ruiz Jnr. in New York. This remains his only pro defeat in his career so far.
AJ did subsequently win back his belts in the rematch between the pair in Saudi Arabia at the end of 2019 with a comfortable points victory.
That loss was, however, Ruiz Jnr’s second in the ring, his first was back in 2016 against New Zealander Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight championship.
Whyte’s record meanwhile currently boasts a record of 27 wins and one loss. That one defeat came back in 2015 against bitter rival Joshua at the London O2 Arena.
Since then, however, the ‘Body Snatcher’ has won 11 out of his 11 fights and secured notable victories against former champions against the likes of Lucas Browne and Joseph Parker as well as British heavyweight rival Dereck Chisora.
Whyte is set to meet former world title challenger Alexander Povetkin on July 4.
Fury meanwhile, as well as relishing in his unbeaten record, ‘The Gypsy King’ has been busy sharing with his 3.7 million Instagram followers his live morning workout six days a week with his wife Paris that is currently on from 9 am during the COVID19 lockdown.
