Former IBF, WBO, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is a man on a mission and now he has issued a veiled threat to rivals Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder. The 29-year-old is determined to destroy his rivals who he believes do not stand a chance in front of him.
Fury who has struggled with alcohol and substance abuse in the recent past took to social networking site Instagram to send Joshua and Wilder a message. In the video, he said, “This is Tyson Fury – the best heavyweight of my generation.”

“I’m just sat here thinking after meeting Roy Jones. Everything he said to me was true. I can’t sleep at night knowing people think AJ or Deontay Wilder are better than me. They are from my era and I would separate them from the centre.”
The Gypsy King did not stop there, going on to describe how he would dismantle the current World Champion should they meet in the ring.

“I want to hit AJ with six left hooks in a row. Bomb squad, I’m coming for you too baby – you may have thought I’ve been f***ing about in the past, but I’m more determined than I’ve ever been, I will destroy all of you. If there are any cruiserweights or light heavyweights who want to move up, you better get it done because I’m smashing through everyone.”
Fury has been out of the ring since shocking the world by beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. He is scheduled to face Albania’s Sefer Seferi in his comeback fight on the 9th of June at Manchester. If all goes well, he is looking to compete at least three to four times this year.
It will be interesting to see how the “GYPSY KING” fares on his comeback. Whatever happens it sure is going to be an exciting clash.
