Wilder, Fury Agree: We're Best in Division, Joshua is a Chicken

By Duncan Robinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY called out Anthony Joshua after his memorable draw with Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles. 

In what will surely be remembered as one of the best fights in recent memory, Fury showed that his time away from the ring has not hindered him.

From the start of the contest at the Staples Center, Fury looked assured and composed, winning most rounds on the experts scorecards.

It seemed certain that Fury was set to win back the world heavyweight title but two knockdowns by Wilder seemingly swayed the judges final decision.

Fury was dropped to the canvas twice by Wilder - once in the ninth and one in the final round - but got up both times to fight on.

And scores of 115-111 for Wilder, 114-110 for Fury and a 113-113 tie ensured that the champion retained his world title.

Speaking after the bout, Fury was adamant that he had won the fight and said that a rematch would happen in the future.

But he was quick to call out Anthony Joshua, claiming that himself and Wilder were the best two heavyweights in the world.

“There's another certain heavyweight out there,” before doing a chicken impression trying to aggrieve Joshua.

“Chicken! Chicken! Joshua, where are you?” Fury shouted.

Wilder agreed with Fury, explaining that “I 100% agree with that. We're the two best in the world, and we proved it tonight, you know. You put two warriors in the ring, that want to put on a show for the fans, you get a great fight.
