Tyson Fury, boxing champion, reveals that an argument he had over the phone with fellow heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has made him realize that the British-Nigerian is disrespectful in reality.
The two heavyweight champions have been intense rivals for a while as a duel they were both to be involved in this summer got postponed due to Deontay Wilder’s victory of an arbitration case that will be making Fury battle with him for the third time.
The heavyweight rivals – Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua – have insulted each other during a heated moment on social media making it the most public time they had exchanged so many scathing words.
Fury disclosed they had argued intensely over the phone with Joshua not being quick to put aside how Fury had turned him down.
He described Joshua as a bully because the latter had given him a call out of the blue to claim he would do this and that to him although Tyson admits he did not think Joshua liked how he (Tyson) had given the same energy at the end of the call.
Tyson claims he got to know the real Anthony Joshua – referring to the champion by his Yoruba name, Femi – through that call.
The 33-year-old WBC champion will be battling with Deontay Wilder for the third time on the 9th of October in Las Vegas.
There had been plans for Wilder and Fury to clash in July but that had to be cancelled due to Fury and some of his team falling victim to Covid.
