Fury: Nobody Likes Joshua Anymore, He Got KO'd By a Fat Guy

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury has verbally lashed out in the direction of his domestic rival, Anthony Joshua.

Back in June, Joshua got dropped four times before getting stopped in the seventh round by huge underdog Andy Ruiz, who walked away with the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight titles at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Now a rematch is scheduled for December 7th, and takes place in Saudi Arabia.

Fury has a rematch looming with WBC champion Deontay Wilder for the first quarter of 2020.

First, he has to get past undefeated Otto Wallin next month at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Fury feels strongly that a upset loss to Wallin would destroy his aura with the fans - and he believes the same has happened with Joshua.  

"People are not interested in beaten fighters," Fury said to TMZ Sports. "That's what we saw with AJ versus Ruiz. He was this big great thing made out of marble, and then he got beaten and then he got knocked out by a fat guy.

"Everyone's like, 'This guy who's ripped got knocked out by this little fat guy.' And now, nobody likes him anymore. The bubble has been burst. It's the cliche of the world: When you've been pounded, nobody wants to know because everybody loves a winner. And, when you're no longer a winner, you don't get no more p*ssy!

The fight Fury is hoping takes place, is the rematch with Wilder. He warns that if he or Wilder lose their upcoming bouts, it would "kill the rematch."

Wilder is slated to face Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz in a rematch, likely on a date in November. He stopped Ortiz in a fire-fight back in March of 2018.

Fury views the Wilder rematch as "the biggest fight on earth, there is no other fight."

[QUOTE=Adrian#1;19986063]The funny thing is, I like Joshua because he is respectful and just boxes, the reason I hate that fat idiot Fury is his fat mouth talking none stop while fighting bums.... I would probably like Fury if he just…

I really don't understand how fury has the balls to speak aloud, he should have his head down in shame after announcing a fight worse than Garcia v salka.

the thrill is definitely gone but uk fans are very loyal and some even go as far as worshiping their fioghters n promoters so even if he loses the rematch he will have support

[QUOTE=Baba K;19986137]Fury doesn't have an "aura"...funny to listen to, boring to watch.[/QUOTE] It’s because he doesn’t have knockout power. I’ll admit he’s a world-class boxer skill-wise but what good is a heavyweight if he can’t knock anyone out?

[QUOTE=Roberto Vasquez;19986025]Fury was banned for 2 years for taking Peds and is fighting nobodies now. His fans are that dumb...[/QUOTE] Yep, and they accuse every other fighter of using PED's.
