British champion Anthony Joshua (23-1, 22 KOs) called a fraud compatriot Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs). A tough reaction from the heavyweight caused the breakdown of the fight for the title of absolute world champion in the heavyweight division due to the fault of the team of the Gypsy King.
Joshua and Fury were scheduled to fight on August 14, but Tyson lost the arbitration court, which ordered him to enter the ring for the third time with American Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO). This message infuriated Anthony, who on his page on the social network Twitter harshly addressed his opponent.
“Now the whole world sees that you are a fraud. You failed boxing! You lied to the fans, you used my name to influence, not to fight. If you knew that there was an arbitration court, why did you announce the fight to the whole world?! The contract was signed! Give me any fighter who knows how to do things right, “ Joshua wrote.
Note that the court-ordered Fury to hold a third fight with Wilder until September 15. The team of the British boxer intends to comply with the court decision.
In turn, Joshua does not intend to give up the idea of holding a fight in the summer. Most likely, the opponent of the champion will be the mandatory challenger of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Ukrainian Alexander Usyk.
