Tyson Fury Sends Call Out Tweet To Joshua Promoter Labelling His Fighter A ‘Weight Lifting Punk’

Tyson Fury sends a message to Joshua’s promoter and TV work in typical, non-subtle Fury fashion. Getting straight to the point, as he does.

Tyson Fury is about a week into his first training camp in nearly two years.

He’s been out in the sun of Marbella in Spain alongside WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders and a number of other professional fighters.

The focus so far has been mainly on losing weight in the beginning process of his camp.

He was a keen spectator of last weekend’s heavyweight title fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko and now wants a piece of the Joshua pie following the Londoner’s big win.

In classic Tyson Fury form, he’s gone on the offensive again to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and this time also Sky Sports boxing – who show Joshua’s fights on TV in the UK:

A lot has been made about Klitschko been 41 years of age when fighting Joshua, but to be fair, he isn’t you’re typical 41 year old.

He stays in shape year round and came in very light for the fight.

It was still a very good Klitschko that turned up at the end of the day. He admitted to as much himself straight after the fight, giving full credit to Joshua for the win.

A rematch clause does exist in the contract on either side it turns out. So a Joshua vs Klitschko fight certainly can happen again.

Whether or not Klitschko decides to exercise that rematch clause is another question however.
