Tyson Fury is back in full on training mode after once again taking a back seat whilst Anthony Joshua took all the plaudits.
The last time Fury did similar was during fight week for Joshua’s victory over Wladimir Klitschko and fans of the 28 year-old are hoping this won’t be yet another false dawn.
With a British Boxing Board of Control hearing still yet to be booked and trainer/uncle Peter seemingly not on board with rejoining the UK body, Fury still faces an uncertain future.
One thing’s for sure though, the Fury social media machine is gathering momentum and aiming squarely at the current kings of the division in Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
“Guess who’s back running!”, warned Fury, before tagging Joshua and Wilder’s accounts then adding: (I’m) counting down the days till I get in with the big stiff man AJ. I see glass and I honestly promised Wilder I’d kick his ass ‘sea bass’ – referencing the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels movie ‘Dumb and Dumber’.
“Fury went on to state: “I reckon I can beat Joshua and Wilder now, even at 25 stone and after being out almost two years! My style is unbeatable. Ask Wlad.
“My fight with Joshua will be won with my feet. (You) Can’t hit what you can’t see! The best footwork in the game. I’m gonna stop you (Joshua) inside eight rounds, watch me go.
“Let’s make it Britain’s biggest fight ever. I say we get Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno involved in the Fury vs AJ fight!”
At this point in time, Fury has already opened talks with Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn regarding a massive all-UK contest, with only the date of a return to action to be arranged.
Joshua v Fury would be the biggest fight on British soil for some time and see two undefeated heavyweights trade blows to finally find out who is the best of their generation since Klitschko’s departure.
