Tyson Fury offered a response to Derek Chisora after the latter’s recent prediction.
Chisora made headlines when he revealed he would be backing former champion Anthony Joshua to not only defeat Oleksandr Usyk in a rematch, but Fury as well.
“I’ll go with AJ. AJ’s power punch is unbelievable. If AJ fights Fury, he has to go on him straight away, blast him out. He can’t box him. If he boxes with him, he loses. If you give Fury time on the ball then you’re in trouble.”
It was certainly a bold prediction which came across Fury’s radar. And naturally, the WBC heavyweight champion decided to respond to Chisora with a video.
“This is a message for Derek Chisora,” Fury began. “I’ve just seen that you said you think AJ would blast me out. Never in a million years.
“If the biggest puncher in history couldn’t blast me out and Wladimir Klitschko couldn’t blast me out, a big old body builder can’t blast me out, my friend.”
Tyson Fury: Usyk Knocks ‘AJ’ Out
Additionally, “The Gypsy King” also doubts Joshua has any chance against Usyk in their planned rematch this year.
In fact, he even believes Usyk will knock him out this time.
“So Del, he ain’t got the bottle to fight Usyk again,” he added. “Usyk will smash him next time, properly. Never mind beat him on points, he’ll knock him out. But listen, it only takes one man like me.There’s only ever been one man on these shores, and he’s called ‘the Gypsy King’, AKA Tyson Fury.”
