Anthony Joshua clearly lost his temper. Often calm and smiling champion on Wednesday evening called out Tyson Fury via Twitter, blaming him for the unprofessional treatment for the match that they have been arranging in recent months.
"Tyson Fury the world now sees you for the fraud you are. You’ve let boxing down! You lied to the fans and led them on. Used my name for clout not a fight. Bring me any championship fighter who can handle their business correctly."
It didn't take Fury long to answer. "Anthony Joshua, your more full of s*it that Eddie, Spouting absolute s*ite! Your full team knew there was an Arbitration going on, it was out of my hands! But i tell you what if i’m a fraud let’s fight this weekend bare knuckles till 1 man quits? Let’s put up 20 mill each!!!
"- Fury wrote Immediately after that, Joshua further referred to the said arbitration, which Fury and his team claimed would not create problems. They have confirmed this to the media several times, obviously convinced of it, but they were equally obviously wrong.
"If there was an arbitration going on, why announce to the world we are fighting! The fight was signed! UNDISPUTED Bare knuckle? You’re a good kid, don’t play with me Luke! I’ll slap your bald head & you’ll do nothing!
Waste man. "was another not-so-common type of answer for Joshua.
As if Fury had now become the more frustrated one, a new answer followed. "Not going in to the details on line! You’ll slap me about will you dosser please come and try Bum, i’m waiting...
Femi AKA Bottlejob! 24/7 365. Ready. Ill smoke wilder first then you will get yours aswell." the message read. Fury subsequently stopped participating in the discussion, despite Joshua sending out another provocation. Namely, he shared a video from a boxing event during which there was a riot in the auditorium, where Fury was also present.
He initially tried to sort out the situation, but in the end did not cross even a small fence. "You’re not about that bare knuckle life. A barrier held you back, not even a bouncer! " AJ wrote. All of this can also be classified as the promotional activities of the match between the two, which we still hope will take place.
But obviously before that they will both have to cross one serious obstacle. Joshua’s name is Oleksandr Usyk, and Fury’s is of course Deontay Wilder.
