“Chicken” Anthony Joshua Challenged By Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder!
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought for WBC Heavyweight title on Saturday night. The fight ended in a very controversial draw. Fury was sent to the canvas in the ninth and twelfth round, but he dominated most of the match.
Many pros criticized judges, claiming Tyson Fury was robbed. “Gypsy King” was furious too. He even called WBC to investigate the referee Alejandro Rochin and asked for an immediate rematch with Wilder.
But one huge question still has no answer. Who will be the first man to fight against unified boxing Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua? Both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder took an aim at “AJ” on the press conference after Saturday night’s epic clash. (via MMAMania.com)
“There’s another certain heavyweight out there,” Fury said before starting to cluck like a chicken. “Chicken! Chicken! Joshua, where are you? Where are you, AJ?”
Fury’s statement was met by an agreement from “The Bronze Bomber” swiftly.
“I 100% agree with that,” Wilder said. “We’re the two best in the world, and we proved it tonight, you know. You put two warriors in the ring, that want to put on a show for the fans, you get a great fight.”
Tyson Fury believes Anthony Joshua doesn’t want to fight Deontay Wilder. According to Fury, Joshua was offered a lot of money to fight Wilder but he declined it.
”It’s no secret that Anthony Joshua did not want this fight,” Fury said. “He didn’t want it for a reason: because Deontay Wilder is the most fiercest puncher in boxing history, in heavyweight division history. And I saw that tonight and I felt it. No wonder AJ didn’t want no part of that right hand. He can’t move like me, he would have been nailed.”
”Wilder came over to the UK and showed up,” he continued. “Called out Joshua, he got offered a lot of money. A lot of money. Money that could change countries, probably. Make broke countries rich, he turned it down. And I come in here, I said to Deontay, I’m sorry for what happened here, but you offer me the fight, I will not turn it down, I promise you. I am the fighting man and I’ll step up and represent my country, and tonight I did that.”
Deontay Wilder is interested in a match with Anthony Joshua. But he also said he’d be happy with a Tyson Fury rematch.
”I’d love to fight Joshua, I’ve been trying to fight him,” Wilder said. “Everyone knows that, it’s no secret. But those guys got other plans, and we’ll see what happens. But I’ll be satisfied either or, to be honest. Me and Fury put on a hell of a performance tonight. I’d love to go back into a rematch or I’d love to fight Joshua, so I think I’m in a win-win situation. I know what the fans want, and I’m with the fans too, you know?”
Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s manager, said that he had already offered 50 million dollars to Anthony Joshua to accept the fight versus Deontay.
”That was already done, and Joshua declined it,” Finkel said. “That was an offer to make a fight, the offers they made Deontay were to not make a fight. So Deontay will fight anyone, and he knows, and I know: the next time he fights Fury, he’ll be better. I don’t know if Fury can be better.”
