Former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury is now very close to his comeback on June 9th and after recently meeting Roy Jones Jr for the first time, has some inspired words of warning for his two closest rivals in the heavyweight division.
In Fury’s absence since 2015 both Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua have now taken over at the top of the traditional glamour division in boxing.
The two are in negotiations to face one another later this year and provided the bout happens, the winner will no doubt be looking for a showdown with Fury in 2019.
Fury must first get some rounds under his belt however and some wins over credible opposition.
Speaking today while driving, Fury had this to say to Joshua and Wilder:
“You know I’m just sat here thinking after meeting the great legend Roy Jones, and everything he said to me was true. I can’t sleep at night knowing people think AJ (Anthony Joshua) is better than me or Deontay Wilder are better than me. They are from my era. I’m going to separate them from their senses. I’m going to hit AJ with six left hooks in a row. Bomb Squad (Deontay Wilder), I’m coming for you baby.”
Fury returns on June 9th at the Manchester Arena against Sefer Seferi.
