VIDEO: Tyson Fury Calls Out Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua After Confirming Fight Deal
By Michael Luciano
Fresh off a career-making performance against Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury will finally take on fellow Brit Anthony Joshua, as the pair will get in the ring twice in 2021, per Eddie Hearn. Before the Joshua fight, however, Fury claims that he needs to dispatch of Wilder once more, as he asserted that he would have to knock him out in the duo's third fight before taking on Joshua.
Did you expect anything less from Fury?
Fury took down Wilder after splitting their first fight, though he was aided by Wilder's ear drum rupturing early in the match.
Joshua finally redeemed himself after pummeling Andy Ruiz in their rematch following the Mexican heavyweight's shocking upset. If Fury is able to beat Wilder and Joshua, there should be no doubt as to who runs the heavyweight division in the immediate and long-term future of the division.
Just like the Wilder fight, Fury's bouts against Joshua are matches made in boxing heaven thanks to the contrast in styles between a premium athlete and elite power puncher like Joshua, and one of the greatest defensive fighters of all time in Fury.
