The slur used by Donald Trump to describe African countries reportedly came from Gypsy King, the WBC Champion Tyson Fury in a war of words preceding the highly anticipated 2021 fight against the Brit-Nigerian heavyweight champion.
According to former super middleweight champion Carl Froch, Tyson told him in a direct inbox message that he believes “the fight won’t happen, the man’s a shithouse. He and his promoter (Eddie Hearn) know I’ll go through him like a hot knife through butter”
Actually, the message read s***house but we are in no doubt as to what exactly he must have meant. We do not however know if it was meant as a racist slur
Froch said Tyson responded by putting up on his instagram wall, a picture of him and AJ facing off.
On Fury’s outburst, Frock says “He genuinely doesn’t think Joshua or Hearn want the fight, but I think they do. AJ has to take the fight or his credibility has gone”
The gypsy’s fighting talk has cast doubt over the so called “Battle of Britain” . Although key details of the fight are yet to be discussed, finances on the two deal fight have been agreed.
Fury must first come through his trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder before the FURY v AJ fight can happen. One cannot help but wonder if Fury is mirroring his own fears of not coming out well from the fight with Wilder.
Meanwhile, speaking on a recent Sky TV show, AJ the two-time unified heavyweight champion said of the fight “I have a lot of respect for the man……., he’s a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head” He then made an unequivocal prediction of a 6th round take-out of the gypsy king. “First six rounds, I think. well I know I.m going to take him out then” he said. “
“I have a shorter career so I’m fresher. I’ve been in the deep end longer so I can handle the pressure and I believe I’m going to take him out!
Fighting talk from a classy champion. We cannot wait to see his predictions come to pass.
