Controversial former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has wished rival Anthony Joshua good luck in his upcoming fight with Wladimir Klitschko.
In a surprising message on his Instagram Fury took some time from taunting Joshua to wish him well ahead of his title fight at Wembley stadium tonight. Of course Fury couldn’t resist teasing Joshua just a bit.
Fury called out the Olympic gold winning boxer saying that he needed to knock out the ‘Ukrainian prick’ so that they could get to the real fight between himself, the Gypsy King, and A.J. Anthony Joshua.
This is a message for A.J., Anthony Joshua. Jut wanted to say good luck tonight pal. Do the business on this Ukrainian prick.
Knock him spark out, I wish you all the luck in the world. Lets make the biggest in British boxing history happen, the real biggest fight, you know how it is. Between the Gypsy King and A.J. Anthony Joshua. Get through this tonight and lets do it
God bless yous (sic) both and I hope you both make it out of the ring safe and sound your families. Good luck boys and all the best.
May the best man win.
Fury vacated the WBA (Unified), WBO, IBO heavyweight titles and was stripped of his boxing license by the British Boxing Board of Control although he’s expected to return to the ring later this year.
Around 90,000 people are expected to watch IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua attempt to take the WBA belt tonight when he and Klitschko go toe-to-toe.
