Fury angrily challenges Joshua, exchanges verbals with Price
Outspoken heavyweight Tyson Fury has been at it again on his Twitter account as the undefeated fighter enters the final few weeks until he finally meets Dereck Chisora in the ring.
The 26 year-old has endured a frustrating time of late since defeating Steve Cunningham in the US, having only fought once in a semi-competative match-up with Joey Abell since April 2013.
The big hitter took to his social media account to dish out some fury of his own to his rivals, in particular British contenders Anthony Joshua and David Price.
“I challenge Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn to fight in December after I smash Chisora,” said Fury. “If you don’t want to fight say sorry for mentioning me!”
Fury was alluding to Joshua’s recent interviews surrounding an impressive win over Denis Bakhtov as the Olympic champion plans his step-up to world level in the next twelve months. Joshua, 25, is one of a whole host of challenges that await Fury in the coming year as the likes of Price, Gary Cornish and Lucas Browne make their own waves up the rankings with some impressive performances.
Fights against Joshua or Price seem to be a forefront of Fury’s anger though since both have named him as potential foes in 2015. There was some further bad blood between Fury and his North West rival Price on Tuesday, with the Liverpudlian even going so far as stating that he will take Chisora’s place if anything happens to the Londoner.
“Oh, and while I’m at it where has David Price gone the big lanky t***,” quipped Fury, to which Price quickly responded: “I’m still here you big silly b*****d. If Chisora pulls out again be sure to get on the phone because I’ll be there to iron you out.”
The British Boxing Board of Control recently fined Fury for going off at a press conference for his November 29 bout with Chisora, leading to the former British champion gagging himself at his next media appearance.
There was no holding back from Fury this week though and it now remains to be seen if the fighter will face any more punishment for his actions.
