Popular boxer, Tyson Fury has come out to blast his heavyweight rival, Anthony Joshua for losing his belts to Oleksandr Usyk during their fight last year. He recently had his say while speaking with the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he really cannot believe that Anthony Joshua gave Ukraine all the heavyweight belts back after all his hard work in stealing them.
Fury added that it will now take a real British Lancaster Bomber like himself to go and bring the belts back to Britain.
His words, “You know what I can’t believe, that AJ has gone and given Ukraine all the heavyweight belts back after all my hard work in stealing them.”
“You let a little man come up from middleweight and set about you and take all your belts. Now it is going to take a real British Lancaster Bomber like me to go and bring the belts back to Britain!”
“You are useless dossers. Honestly bring them to me. I am the “Gypsy King”. Bring them to me and I will put them in their place.”
Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.
Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.
His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.
Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
