Former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) has lashed out at Wladimir Klitschko, who retired a few months ago.
Fury captured the WBA, WBO, IBO, IBF heavyweight titles with an upset twelve round decision over Klitschko in Germany in November of 2015.
They had two planned rematch dates which Fury withdrew from. The second fight never took place as planned.
Fury, who last year vacated his world titles to focus on his mental health issues, is angered by the fact that Klitschko never praises him for his upset win - but always manages to give praise to current WBA, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs).
Klitschko fought Joshua back in April, before a crowd of 90,000 at Wembley, and lost by way of a stoppage in the eleventh round.
Fury believes he beat Klitschko in much easier fashion, while Joshua was dropped in the sixth round and took quite a few big punches in the contest before rallying in the championship rounds to get the TKO win.
"Wladimir I don’t get why you’re so bitter about your loss to the Gypsy King, always banging on about your loss to AJ and how great he is. At the end of the day, you lost to AJ by TKO in what was a 50/50 fight right until the end. In our fight, you couldn’t land any punches and I made you miss and really played games in there. But yet you say AJ is better," Fury stated on social media.
"I know you won’t admit the truth to the world, but in your mind you know the truth, so does Vitali! I wouldn’t expect anything more from you guys. But deep down you know what happened in there. And, by the way, I’m going to deal with your little brother AJ in the same fashion as I dealt with you, play with the bitch. P.S. I’ll be haunting your nightmares forever Dr. Klitschko and you will always know that you could have never beat the fat gypsy."
