Tyson Fury Calls Out Anthony Joshua

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) has re-ignited his feud with recently crowned IBF champ Anthony Joshua.

The Olympic gold medalist saw off Charles Martin within two rounds last night.

Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16 KOs) joins WBA and WBO champion Fury as a title holder in the top division and Fury wasted no time in calling out Joshua.

The outspoken champion hit out at his British rival not long after his eye-catching performance against Charles Martin (23-1-1, 21 KOs) at the 02 Arena: Fury was not impressed with his display.

Fury still holds the WBO, WBA, and IBO titles though, and seems to be setting his eye on a bout with Joshua.

While all the talk of a fight against Joshua sounds good, Fury has the small matter of getting Klitschko out the way on July 9th in Manchester.

The long-awaited rematch has been announced and should Fury come through that fight then a match-up against Joshua would make sense. But until that fight takes place all talk of a potential fight between the two Brits is a little premature.

Joshua is now undefeated in 16 professional bouts, and won the belt that was stripped from Tyson Fury last December.

Not long after Joshua had become champ, Fury took to twitter to give his opinion:

Fury claimed just before the fight to have bet £1,000 on Martin recording a knockout victory. The champion also posted a picture of himself alongside his cousin Hughie Fury, claiming they are the best heavyweights on the planet.

Anthony Joshua admitted after the fight that the likes of David Haye and Tyson Fury have been calling him out.

However former world champ Lennox Lewis feels those two fights are out of reach at the moment as Joshua is still a work in progress.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn is excited about the future for his fighter. He said: “He made his debut in this arena. He won British and Commonwealth titles in this arena and now he’s won the world title in this arena.

“This is only the beginning. He’s got aspirations to unify all the belts. We’ve got a little something planned on July 9 at Wembley Stadium. He’s going to go through everybody.

“This is going to be the biggest star in world boxing if he’s not already. He’s the real deal and he’ll beat everybody.”

IPL: Mumbai Indians Lose Season Opener

Mumbai Indians lost an Indian Premier League (IPL) opener for the 8th successive year following a 5-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings.

When Did Formula One Begin?

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”.

The Cleveland Browns Are Looking Up

The Cleveland Browns have a team that had a ton of questions this year. They came into the game against the Bengals unsure of how they were going to get their offense going. While the Bengals aren't at all a good defense, it's still hard to play those divisional games and win. The AFC North is known for brutally cold weather that makes it nearly impossible to stay sharp, yet they were sharp offensively....

The Case For Rocky Marciano

You wouldn't think, not even for a second, that you would have to defend a world champion boxer who retired with an unblemished record of 49-0 (43 KO's), but if it's Rocky Marciano we're talking about then yep, he needs to be defended. It's ridiculous, but true. Marciano seems to have as many naysayers as he does fans. "He was too small", "He never fought anybody in their prime", "He'd get killed today"; etc....
