Former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury confirmed today that he has signed the contract to take on Deontay Wilder on December 1st. He’s also taken the opportunity to trash tonight’s Anthony Joshua card.
The undercard tonight on Joshua vs Povetkin perhaps has not lived up to a lot of people’s expectations.
The card is pay per view in the UK and many are lashing out at what they have seen so far.
It is free however in the US via DAZN’s first free month, to be fair.
Fury is slamming what he is seeing though. He’s gotten a gargantuan reaction to this tweet already sent out a short time ago:
In what world ? is this sky bill ppv, no disrespect to any of the fighters on the card but worse POV card ever???? £24 for this shit rip the people off!!!!

Many fans appear to be agreeing with him in the comments.
The night is not over yet of course. The big one is up next in the form of Joshua vs Povetkin which is what everyone has tuned in for anyway.
If there wasn’t any pressure on Anthony Joshua, there certainly is now.
The fight is expected to be on shortly live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
Enjoy tonight’s fight folks.
