After his fight against Deontay Wilder which ended in a controversial draw, Tyson Fury has called out Anthony Joshua calling him a “chicken” challenging the heavyweight champion to take him on in the ring.
At the post-match interview with the Briton, still he the ring, boldly stated, “Nevermind anybody, me and this man here are the two best heavyweights on the planet. I stepped up after the amount of time I had out of the ring,”
“There’s another certain heavyweight out there…” he continued, before doing a chicken impersonation.
“Chicken! Chicken!”, he screamed.
“Joshua, where are you? Where are you AJ? AJ?” he screamed.
Wilder added: “I totally 100 per cent agree with that. We’re the two best in the world and we proved it tonight. When you get two warriors in the ring you get a great fight.”
Despite being knocked down twice, Fury believed he had the edge in the fight.
He said: “I got knocked down twice but I still believe I won the fight and I believe every man in here thought I won that fight tonight.
“But I’m showing total professionalism here. I’m a true champion, a true warrior. I went to Germany to fight Klitschko, I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder. Bless Deontay Wilder he’s a top fighting man.
“God bless America, the Gypsy King has returned!”
Saturday night’s heavyweight title fight in Los Angeles ended in a split decision draw with Fury twice getting himself off the canvas to the frustration of his opponent.
Both fighters are keen on a rematch after Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight belt on the judges’ decision, but Fury was keen to call out AJ straightaway.
