Tyson Fury Posts Tweet Immediately After AJ Defeats Klitschko
Anthony Joshua’s incredible victory after a hard fought battle against Wladamir Klitschko may have stunned most of the world, but it certainly doesn’t seem to have stopped former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury from delivering a few backhanded compliments while trying to secure a fight with the newly crowned king.
Joshua put on a fantastic performance against the Ukrainian veteran at Wembley stadium, managing to knock out his opponent in the eleventh round in an electrifying finish that may signal the start of a new breed of champion.
The gritty young fighter worked his way back from a sixth round knockdown, showing that he can truly pull himself back from the brink to secure the victory. Having not experienced much adversity in the ring before, even during the London 2012 Olympics where he took home gold, Joshua showed he had the ability to rally himself, scoring heavy strikes on Klitschko as the fight wore on.
Sitting pretty on a record of 19 wins, 0 losses, and being professional for less than four years, Joshua will be looking to start taking home some massive paychecks as new challengers start to appear. And the one with the loudest mouth? Definitely Tyson Fury. The outspoken former champion had earlier said on Twitter that he intended to come back to the ring after being away for almost two years.
“I have made a massive turnaround and am back training on a mission to put the record straight,” wrote Fury. “I want to make my family, friends, and fans proud again. I’m sorry I let everyone down. It will never happen again!
Joshua called Fury out in his post-fight speech, to the screams of 90,000 fans.
“Tyson, where you at baby? Tyson Fury, I know you’ve been talking and want to come back. I just wanna fight everyone,” said the newly crowned champion.
A clash between Fury and Joshua is certainly intriguing to fans and pundits alike. Both fighters boast undefeated records, with Fury holding 25 wins, 18 of which have come by knockout. His most recent victory, like Joshua, was over Wladimir Klitschko.
