Tyson Fury has called Anthony Joshua a ‘pussy’ and urged Oleksandr Usyk to take his title from him in the rematch. The heavyweight champion also threatened that he would come back stronger than ever for revenge on Saturday night’s show.
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury had a heated exchange of words at the weigh-in for their rematch. Fury said he would “smash” Joshua in the ring, while Joshua replied that he was going to do the same thing.
In this week’s Fight Talk, we look at Tyson Fury’s rush of social media activity as he reignites an old feud, and Jake Paul’s three bouts in 2021 are expected to earn him $40 million.
Cheavon Clarke, Matchroom’s newest acquisition, is expected to make his professional debut in 2022.
Fight Talk is back with your weekly dose of boxing news.
On social media, Fury mocks AJ.
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. Two of the greatest names in international boxing, both from the United Kingdom, in the heavyweight class, with all the gold. They were doomed to battle.
All of this happened before Joshua’s WBA (Super), WBO, IBF, and IBO championships were stripped from him by Oleksandr Usyk in late September of last year.
But do you recall what it was like at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before that night? All boxing fans were accustomed to seeing AJ and Fury engage in a social media spat.
We haven’t heard anything from either combatant about the other since then. Following his loss to Usyk, the WBC heavyweight champion first hesitated to kick Joshua while he was down, but that changed last week.
Derek Chisora’s prediction that Joshua would defeat Fury if they fought in the ring was the reason.
That prompted a retort from Fury, who used social media to retaliate.
“Derek Chisora, this is a message for you. I just noticed you mentioned you thought AJ would blow me up – never in a million years, “Fury said.
“If Wladimir Klitschko, the greatest puncher in history, couldn’t knock me out, then a big old bodybuilder can’t knock me out, my buddy.”
Fury said, ” “Also, Del doesn’t have the stomach for another battle with Usyk. Usyk will properly demolish him the next time. He’ll knock him out instead of beating him on points.”
The Gyspy King wasn’t finished yet. Fury also made a social media remark, ridiculing Joshua’s current lack of belts with a side-by-side comparison.
Max Holloway, the former UFC featherweight champion, couldn’t help but giggle when he saw this post.
The victor of Usyk’s rematch with Joshua is set to meet Fury in a heavyweight unification fight later this year.
Jake Paul earned $40 million in boxing in 2021.
According to Forbes, Jake Paul earned an estimated $40 million (£29.3 million) from his three boxing contests in 2021.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer splits opinion in the sport, but the stats don’t lie, whether you like him or not. Paul became a boxing attraction in 2021.
Before defeating Tyron Woodley, 39, the 25-year-old KO’d retired fighter and former Bellator champion Ben Askren, 37.
Paul was ecstatic to brag about his achievement on social media.
And many people were pleased to point out that he will not be facing a professional boxer in 2021.
In December, Paul was supposed to fight Tommy Fury, but the British boxer had to withdraw due to an injury.
Cheavon Clarke joins Matchroom as a player.
Cheavon Clarke, a British Olympic heavyweight, has inked a long-term promotional partnership with Matchroom Boxing.
Clarke, 31, will make his professional debut at cruiserweight in 2022, and promoter Eddie Hearn expects great things from him.
Clarke revealed his intentions for the future on social media, stating in a video: “I’m capable of handling any situation. I can blend it all together. I can give you a little bit of Mike Tyson, a little bit of Ali, and a little bit of Roy Jones.”
The signing has piqued the interest of the’s own Steve Bunce, who believes Clarke is the Josh Taylor of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics; like Clarke, Scotland’s undisputed light-welterweight champion was knocked out in the last 16 of his lone Olympics.
