Tyson Fury backflip amid Oleksandr Usyk’s successful title defence Anthony Joshua


Tyson Fury has expressed his willingness to return to the ring despite retiring from the sport multiple times following Oleksandr Usyk’s split decision win over Anthony Joshua.

The victory in Saudi Arabia means Usyk needs one more belt to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, the WBC belt held by Fury.

Since his successful title defence over Derek Chisora earlier this year, Fury reaffirmed calls to hang up the gloves saying he was ready to walk away.

He said “no amount of money” would change his mind from retiring until he called out Chisora for a trilogy bout, before saying he’s happy in retirement.

Now he appears to have backflipped again following Usyk’s win over Joshua, saying he would “annihilate both of them”.

“(I’ll) be honest with you guys, after watching that, the both of them were shit,” Fury posted on his Instagram story.

“One of the worst heavyweight title fights I have ever seen. It was bullshit.

“I would annihilate both of them on the same night, f—ing shit.

“Get your f—ing chequebook out because The Gypsy King is here to stay, forever!”

Usyk, who is now undefeated from 20 professional fights, had to fight off a Joshua comeback in the latter rounds, namely the ninth, where the British former champion had the Ukrainian in a tough spot, leaving him with the wobbles.

However, in the 10th, Usyk looked stronger as Joshua aimed for a knockout blow, and pushed on to stay out of trouble for the remaining three rounds to retain the title.

Amid Joshua’s bizarre meltdown after the fight, Usyk said of Fury: “I am sure Tyson Fury is not retired yet. I am sure Tyson Fury wants to fight me. If I’m not fighting Tyson Fury, I’m not fighting at all.”
