Tyson Fury does not want to look vulnerable in WWE – Report.


WWE is in an interesting spot with Tyson Fury as the two sides want to work together, but there are some challenges in the way.

As previously reported by The US Sun, WWE wants Fury to make an appearance at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 28 ahead of a possible match at WrestleMania 39. It’s unclear who WWE wants him to wrestle at the show in April. (Watch Video Here)

The odds of these plans happening are considered slim as Fury is banned from entering the United States due to links with alleged Irish mob boss Daniel Kinahan. Fury is losing millions of dollars from not being able to make the appearances. WWE may book him at one of their international shows in 2023.

Fury made his in-ring debut (Watch Video Here) at WWE Crown Jewel in 2019 by defeating Braun Strowman via count out.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that according to one major source, the person couldn’t say the story wasn’t true but was not something talked about. (Watch Video Here)

“It was noted that Fury was not willing to put people over or even look vulnerable, and if he were to be in the Rumble as a surprise, what would he do and how does it even make sense for him to do a quick Rumble cameo given the amount of money it would cost to use him,” Meltzer wrote.

If WWE can get Fury to appear at WrestleMania, then that would be just another big get for them as they hope to have The Rock wrestle Roman Reigns at the show in addition to having Steve Austin and John Cena wrestle. (Watch Video Here)




Anthony Joshua accepts Tyson Fury’s ‘Battle of Britain’ challenge


British boxing superstar Anthony Joshua said he would be ready to fight world champion and compatriot, Tyson Fury, in December after he was issued a public challenge Monday to fight a “Battle of Britain” for the WBC heavyweight boxing belt.

Joshua, 32, suffered a second straight loss to Ukraine’s WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO champion Oleksandr Usyk in a title rematch in Saudi Arabia last month and has said he wants to return to the ring before the end of the year.

Fury announced last April that he was fulfilling a promise to his wife to retire but has subsequently said he will fight again.

“I think you’ve all heard that I am going to be fighting soon within the next few months,” Fury said in a video directed at the former champion on social media.

“Anthony Joshua, I know you’ve just lost a fight to Usyk and you’re bout-less at the moment, and I’d like to give you an opportunity to fight me for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and the lineal championship in the next few months.

“You’re coming off a 12-round fight, so you’re match fit, you’re ready. I’m giving you a few months’ notice,” added the 34-year-old.

Usyk said after the fight in Jeddah that he was only interested in a bout with Fury but media reports have said he will not fight again this year in order to rest and spend time with his family.

“If you’re interested I’ll send you the date over and we can rumble,” Fury told Joshua in the video.

“A Battle of Britain for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world. Let me know if you’re interested, if not I will select another opponent.”

Joshua responded saying he would be ready to fight if Fury stuck to his word.

“I don’t do online discussions just for clout,” Joshua wrote on an Instagram story. “So if you’re really about it, shout @258mgt (Joshua’s management company). I’ll be ready in December.”




Joshua’s victory over Usyk “possible of forcing” Tyson Fury out of retirement.


John Fury has revealed the only fight that would tempt his son, Tyson Fury, back into the ring would be the long-awaited showdown with fellow British fighter, Anthony Joshua, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The WBC heavyweight champion has insisted repeatedly that his boxing days are behind him after walking away from the sport to spend more time with his family after his victory over Dillian Whyte in April.

The 33-year-old could, however, be tempted by a return to the ring to fight the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs Joshua, who will meet in their rematch in August with the Ukrainian’s IBF, WBO and WBA titles on the line.

Fury has denied reports previously that he is already in talks to fight the winner and his dad has now come out to reveal that he will remain retired unless fellow Brit Joshua wins the rematch in August.

‘‘Yes. Nobody else will. To be honest with you, he’s never come out the gym,’’ John Fury told the Metro.

“He’s obsessed with training at the moment, twice a day, every day. I’ve been participating in some of it myself.

“He enjoys training, the pressure is off and he loves the gym life. He’s turned into a gym rat basically. It’s funny to see but he is.

“He’s super fit and he’s enjoying his time out the ring. Whether it’s going to be permanent or not, it’s up to him. He says he’s retired but you never know with Tyson.

“He’s training very hard for a retired man in my book. But that’s up to him, we’ll see in the future.”

The 32-year-old bounced back after his last defeat and will be hoping to do the same this time after he was heavily criticised for failing to use his size to his advantage after the rematch was confirmed for Saudi Arabia on August 20.

A formal announcement of the hundred-million-dollar plus deal for Joshua v Usyk II will be made early next week.

The Middle East Kingdom is poised to invest even more extravagantly in the Gypsy King’s return from brief retirement for a spectacular outing, which they regard as ‘the next Rumble In The Jungle.’

The bid by Fury, as holder of the WBC title, to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion, is being pitched for between the World Cup semifinals and Final in Qatar, probably on December 17, while tens of thousands of football fans are in the Middle East.

A source close to the Saudi Royal family says: “This is part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s ambitious Vision 2030 project to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors to the Kingdom alike, leading towards net zero carbon emission.

“The Crown Prince wants the world to recognise Saudi Arabia as much more than an oil country, of which sports and culture are an integral part.”

The mega-bucks deal has been brokered for the Saudi government by long-time boxing fan, Prince Khaled bin Abdulaziz, through Skill Challenge Entertainment, who have secured the global rights for Joshua v Usyk.

Fury added: “He’s a big strong guy and it was only a game plan that let him down last time and Usyk, even though he got the decision, he knew he was in a fight. He was smashed to bits was Usyk.

“So, all AJ has to do is tweak a few things and sheer size and power wins. He needs to get his mind right though as that’s the key to unlocking it all. I believe he can do it.

“He’s got a funny way of doing things. He beat Ruiz in Saudi on the return so why not? If anyone’s capable its AJ.
“I hope he does win and who knows, a fight against him might just tempt Tyson.”




Will Tyson Fury really retire from professional boxing?


Will Tyson Fury really retire from professional boxing?

This past Saturday in front of 94,000 screaming fans at Wembley Stadium, Tyson Fury defended his WBC and lineal heavyweight world championship against challenger Dillian Whyte. At times it seemed as if Whyte had the right idea in terms of trying to find ways to land to the body, but his execution left something to be desired. For the most part Fury made it look fairly easy, comfortably outboxing the challenger without much issue. Fury was exhibiting good footwork and movement, and he was effective when it came to neutralizing Whyte’s attacks. Things came to an end in round 6 when Fury nailed Whyte with a nice uppercut that sent him down hard. Whyte tried beating the count, but his legs were gone and the referee stopped the fight. Fury had successfully defended his heavyweight championship.

In the post fight interview, Fury continued to suggest that this may well have been his final bout inside the squared circle. In boxing it is not uncommon for high profile champions to change their minds after a retirement, with some boxers, like the great Sugar Ray Leonard for example, returning to action following several retirements throughout his career. Fury is skilled in the art of self promotion, so perhaps this is just a ploy. Or perhaps he is serious and will later change his mind and decide to return to boxing. Or maybe Fury is 100% serious, and perhaps his title defense against Whyte will indeed be the final fight in his professional boxing career. Should Fury continue with his career, however, there is one logical fight left that may entice him to hang around just a little longer, and that would be a fight against the winner of the upcoming rematch between unified IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and former two time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Will Tyson Fury really retire from professional boxing? Or does he have one big mega fight left against the winner of the Usyk vs Joshua rematch?

This edition of Rummy’s Corner will attempt to answer that question, while also providing a quick recap into a few of the more memorable fights during the career of The Gypsy King, Tyson Fury. For one fan’s opinion, please watch and enjoy the video. This is Rummy’s Corner.




Tyson Fury bluffing about retiring: Eddie Hearn.


Eddie Hearn says Tyson Fury is NOT retiring despite him saying he’s done with the sport after his win over Dillian Whyte last weekend.

Hearn states that WBC heavyweight champion Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) is a “Bluff merchant” and just talking.

That’s the view that many boxing fans have about Fury, believing that he’s so desperate for attention because he wants people to show how much they care about him.

The best way for the 33-year-old Fury to receive worship from the fans is to yap about him retiring. It’s pretty sad if Fury is faking a retirement out of a need to be exalted by the public.

If that’s Fury’s game, it will work against him, with fans tiring of his act and tuning him out.

“He was just harassing everybody, basically,” said Eddie Hearn to DAZN Boxing Show about Tyson Fury enjoying himself last Sunday, celebrating his victory over Dillian Whyte.

“Tyson Fury is a great bluff merchant. And he ain’t retiring. The biggest fights for Fury haven’t happened yet.”

Gilfoid agrees with Hearn. Fury hasn’t fought anybody other than an old Wladimir Klitschko, flawed Deontay Wilder, Whyte, and Otto Wallin. Joshua has a better resume.

Fury to retire right now without fighting Joshua & Usyk would be a clear sign that he lacks the conviction that he can win those fights. Frankly, Fury will lose to Joshua & Usyk because they’re too talented for him. Also, he’s looking very, very old at 33.

“If he beat AJ and Usyk, I’d give him all the respect,” said Hearn about Fury. “If we’re giving Fury that kind of credit for those wins, please give AJ the same credit. He beat two of those three,” said Hearn.

“With victories over Wilder, Klitschko, and Whyte, do NOT talk about him being in the same breath as Ali, Frazier, and Lewis.”

With age taking over, Fury no longer can move around the ring and is reduced to flicking a slow jab and grabbing his opponents in a bearhug when they get near.

You can argue that was the worst thing Fury could do because fans are more interested in watching fights when they know that the fighter will continue and face better opposition.

If Fury wanted to bring in more PPV buys, he should have kept his yap shut about retiring and instead talked up the idea of him fighting the winner of the Anthony Joshua vs. Oleksandr Usyk rematch.

Fans weren’t excited about Fury’s fight against Whyte last weekend because that fight was seen as an appetizer for Tyson facing Joshua or Usyk.

Fury blew it by talking nonstop about retirement before and after the Whyte fight. That was a wacky thing to do.

If I were his promoter, I wouldn’t have been happy with Fury putting a dark cloud over the promotion of the Whyte fight by saying he’s going to retire.




Dillian Whyte wants rematch, says Tyson Fury pushed him down “illegally”


Dillian Whyte says WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury used an “illegal” two-handed push to aid his sixth-round knockdown, resulting in ‘Body Snatcher’ hitting the back of his head when he fell last Saturday night.

It’s unclear whether Whyte hit his head on the canvas as he maintains, as the Top Rank highlight on YouTube doesn’t include the knockdown for some odd reason.

It freezes and shows a still picture of Whyte on the canvas. ESPN’s replay doesn’t show the knockdown either. Again, it’s unclear why the most crucial sequence of the fight wasn’t shown.

Whyte (28-3, 19 KOs) says the referee should have given him time to recover from the knockdown because it was caused in part by an illegal two-handed shove.

“When the uppercut landed, I was buzzed, and he proper full-on pushed me, and I fell over, and I hit my head on the canvas, which is illegal. This isn’t wrestling; this is boxing,” said Dillian Whyte to Sky Sports Boxing in reflecting on his sixth-round knockout loss last Saturday against Tyson Fury.

In looking at the replay, there was a clear two-handed push on Fury’s part, which toppled the hurt Whyte. Fury didn’t need to push Whyte.

The push was unneeded on Fury’s part, and it’s too bad that he deserted to this move to help him score a knockdown of Whyte.

Given that a push led to the knockout, one can understand where Whyte is coming from in feeling that he should have been allowed time to recover from the knockdown. After all, this isn’t big-time wrestling where fighters can shove their opponents to the canvas.

Fury’s fans likely aren’t going to feel sorry for Whyte, as they’re just happy their hero won. However, if you’re objective about it, Whyte probably should have been given time to recover because it wasn’t a simple one-handed push that Fury gave him.

Unfortunately, Fury used two hands to shove Whyte to the canvas, and if Dillian did hit his head, as he says, that might be why he was so hurt when he got back to his feet.

“But as usual, they let Tyson Fury do what he wants and get away with it,” said Whyte. “I should have been allowed extra time to recover and carry on fighting.”

Fury was doing a lot of wrestling in the fight, forcing Whyte against the ropes, and leaning on him without throwing punches. Whyte tried to get Fury to stop resting on him by tapping him in the back of the head, but it was no use.

The referee should have stopped his mauling tactics from Fury by peeling him off of Whyte because it looked like Fury was turning the fight into a wrestling match during those instances.

“He pushed me and then went and said to the referee, ‘Don’t let the fight carry on.’ I hope he doesn’t retire because I want another go,” said Whyte.




I could defeat Tyson Fury twice and reclaim WBO title – Anthony Joshua


Joshua has fought there twice. He won against Joseph Parker and Carlos Takam.

As the year comes to a close, the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is looking forward to a potential full division unification with WBC champion Tyson Fury in 2021, reports NoRM‘s known Media.

Anthony Joshua was in action earlier this month when he knocked out mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.

Now his sights are set on finalising a two-fight deal with Fury.


The only thing in Joshua’s way – is a clash with WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk.

If Usyk refuses to accept a step-aside deal, then Joshua could be forced to vacate the WBO title in order to move forward with a highly lucrative fight against Fury.


“Will people care if I have to lose a belt to Usyk? Will I have to give one up? I am not too sure yet. I don’t want to, because it is ‘the road to undisputed’. But I know that, when I win, I will go back and fight for that belt anyway — that will be my goal,” Joshua said to The Sun.

“I want to fight Fury, beat him again in the rematch — two difficult hurdles, serious fights — then I will go straight back to try to fight for that title again.”

On the other side of the fence, Fury is dealing with a legal action brought forward by Deontay Wilder.


Back in February, Fury stopped Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Soon after, Wilder exercised an immediate rematch clause. The contest was postponed several times, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Eventually, Fury’s handlers took the firm position of Wilder allowing the rematch clause to expire – while Wilder began a legal battle to enforce the rematch clause for the trilogy fight.

“I don’t know what Fury’s situation is with Wilder. My situation is, do I give up the WBO or will Usyk step aside?” Joshua said.


A summer undisputed heavyweight clash between Fury and Joshua is the fight on everyone’s lips at the moment, certainly on British shores, according to NoRM‘s known Media

Talks have been held between both sides to get a fight over the line in the summer of 2021 between the world’s top two at 200 pounds plus. There’s seemingly only one major problem. Saudi Arabia is favoured to host the encounter.


Money men in the Middle East, who previously wanted Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao II – as first reported by WBN late last year, have now turned their attention to Fury v Joshua.

Despite initial discussions about a potential spring date for the fight, WBN understands June or July is much more likely. But due to the current pandemic, taking the first of two bouts outside of the UK makes the most sense to those who crunch the numbers.

We know that Joshua would be more inclined to fight in the summer. That’s if the first fight can be kept in the United Kingdom.


Should all sides take the money and head to Saudi Arabia, May could work but would be a massive blow for the whole UK. Questions of whether the UK government should step in have since been raised to keep the fight on home soil. But as COVID-19 gets worse and worse in the UK, the likeliness of fans being able to witness the biggest top division fight in history is fading fast.

The fans are going to be the biggest losers here. Those who can’t afford to travel or don’t want to step foot in the region due to other issues have no option but to watch TV. At present, it’s imperative the fight just gets made.

Therefore, where it takes place for now is a secondary matter.

They will agree on a two-fight deal. This gives significant hope that the rematch will happen in the UK. If it takes place at the end of 2021, then a huge stadium with a roof like that of The Principality Stadium in Wales would be the frontrunner.


As the venue continues to be a bone of contention, mediation includes Deontay Wilder and Oleksandr Usyk. Situations that see Wilder wanting his shot at Fury. Plus, Usyk being the mandatory challenger to Joshua, still need to be ironed out.

It’s not a straightforward heavyweight deal, obviously. Fingers remain crossed.



Top Story: Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury to combat twice.


Two blockbuster boxing fights are on the way, as heavyweights, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have agreed to face each other,

Since Fury knocked out Wilder not quite long, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, as been trying to get the Brits to face each other.

He seems to have gotten his wish.

According to Eddie Hearn, terms are already in place for the British world heavyweight champions to go head to head.


Though no contracts have been signed, Hearn expects WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder Joshua to face WBC champion Fury to determine the undisputed king of the heavyweight scene in 2021.

Speaking with Media earlier today, he said;

“We’re making great progress. There is still a lot to overcome. We are looking at venues and dates.”


“We’re in a good place,” he added. “It’s fair to say that, in principle, both guys have agreed to that fight. Two fights.

“(There’s) a lot to overcome in the meantime. We’re moving in the right direction. I’m confident that both guys have given their blessings for the fight to go ahead.”


Hearn said the first bout could happen in the summer of 2021.

Joshua is due to fight Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev next, while Fury has a rematch due with American Deontay Wilder.


Joshua, 30, is still on course to face Pulev despite injuring his knee during a recent training run.

He was seen with a knee brace and crutches during a Black Lives Matter protest at the weekend.



Anthony Joshua, Andy Ruiz JR set for Trilogy.

Anthony Joshua may lock horns with Andy Ruiz Jr once again in the future after his promoter Eddie Hearn teased a trilogy.

Joshua took Ruiz apart in their December rematch to round off a dominant points victory and become a two-time world champion in Saudi Arabia – avenging his shocking loss to the Mexican, who had stopped him in New York months earlier.

With both men winning one fight each, Ruiz had immediately called for a third bout to settle the contest, although many fans are hoping for Joshua to instead take on Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder instead in a mega undisputed fight.

But Hearn has suggested that Joshua and Ruiz could eventually share a ring together again, saying the 30-year-old will ‘fight everyone’, including Ruiz. But he had doubts over whether the Mexican was ready for a huge fight again after making a sizeable profit from his first two fights with the Brit.

“He will fight everybody, and that probably includes a third fight with Ruiz at some point if he keeps winning or if he’s still around,’ he told Fighthub.

“Who knows what Ruiz is going to do? He’s made a lot of money. Maybe he sails off into the sunset.

“It’s not just the partying, it’s the travelling, talk shows, party, media, game show, Jimmy Kimmel, and that drains you. That’s one of the things that AJ did wrong. He did too much of that. It’s like an obligation of being a champion.”


Anthony Joshua praises rival, Tyson Fury’s mentality.

Heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has for the first time come out to praise his rival, Tyson Fury’s mentality
He said Tyson’s Mentality to battle with mental health issues, alcoholism, drug addiction and depression made him a better fighter.

Fury was away from the boxing ring for 30 months after winning four Heavyweight title belts following his 2015 massive win over Vladmir Klitshcko.

During that period, he almost drank poison, jumped off a bridge, took cocaine, became overweight, avoided his wife and kids but became a christian and started a remarkable journey towards coming back to active sports which resulted in his draw with then WBC champion Deontay Wilder in 2018 and his massive win over Wilder last month.

And Joshua who now holds the four heavyweight belts vacated by Fury five years ago due to mental health issues feels Fury’s break from the sport between November 2015 and June 2018 has made the Gypsy King an even better boxer.

Joshua, speaking on Lucozade Sports Running The Show Podcast said

‘Fury is very talented. Wilder is very talented. They went in there and gave their best and one man came out on top.

‘Maybe Wilder thought it was going to be an easier fight because Fury had a long lay-off and had his own issues outside of the ring and stuff like that.

‘They were both physically conditioned for the fight but sometimes when you have been at rock bottom where Fury was the only way is up.

‘You can’t actually go any lower than that so he picked himself up and only he knew how high he took his heights. You can only let yourself get to rock bottom again.

‘I think he was at his highest height that night so it paid off for him. Mentally he was at the best place possible and he just pulled off a great performance against a dangerous puncher.

Joshua plans to fight Fury this December as long as both fighters win their next fights.


Tyson Fury says he want to retire after Deontay Wilder’s threat of new attire.

Tyson Fury has confirmed his plans to retire from boxing after two major fights.

The 31-year-old British boxer defeated Deontay Wilder just 11 days ago to become WBC heavyweight champion of the world. Tyson knocked down his American opponent twice before his team threw in the towel in the seventh round to end the bout.

Following the shocking defeat, Bronze Bomber quickly activated his rematch clause, meaning that there will be a summer trilogy fight between the pair.

Appearing on This Morning with his wife Paris Fury, the current WBC heavyweight champion of the world opened up on his future plans.

According to him, after his rematch with Deontay Wilder, he’ll take on Anthony Joshua and then retire from boxing.

When his wife, Paris called for him to call it a day on This Morning, Fury said: “I’ve got two more fights left, then we’re going to really think about what we do from there.

“How long does a piece of string go on? I’m undefeated in 31 professional fights and this is my 12th year as a professional.

“I’ve already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. When I beat Klitschko I had all the belts, so as far as I’m concerned Anthony Joshua just has my leftovers.

“I never lost those belts, I had to take time out to deal with mental health issues, so they’re my belts. Until a man is defeated in a boxing ring, how can you pretend to be the champion?”

He also revealed that this time, he is better equipped to deal with the fame and pressure that comes with being world champion.

He said: “It’s almost an anti-climax. You elevate yourself in mind and body to go and box at his level and nothing means anything apart from the fight. Then you win and it’s like,

‘Oh well, I’ve done that’ and I slide down the other side. But I feel fine, I’ve learned over the years to maintain the mental health problems and to train on a daily basis and keep a routine.

“It takes me about two weeks to get back to normal after a massive fight.

“It is a rollercoaster of emotions, to be away from the kids and the school run and the screaming and shouting, it takes a lot to come back to that and get re-adjusted to that after three months away.”


Deontay Wilder will come back in fire – Fiancee, Telli Swift.

Deontay Wilder’s fiancee, Telli Swift, is standing like a rock behind her lover, come rain, sunshine and she appears to have confirmed that the Bronze Bomber will activate the option of a trilogy bout with Tyson Fury.

Wilder was condemned to the first defeat of his professional career in Las Vegas, with the American’s trainer throwing in the towel midway through the seventh round.

But despite being left battered and bloodied by Fury, Wilder’s camp seem likely to exercise a third fight between the pair.

As per the contract penned before the duo faced off for the WBC heavyweight world title, the loser would be able to secure another rematch within 30 days of the clash.

But after Wilder was dominated by an inspired Fury, with the Alabama native knocked down in the third and fifth rounds, talk concerning a unification fight with Anthony Joshua began to gather pace.

Wilder’s partner, however, confirmed that the dethroned star is seeking an immediate shot at revenge.

After a lengthy tribute to Wilder, penned following the end of his five-year reign as WBC champion, she wrote on Instagram: ‘#WilderFury3 here we come!! #thesagacontinues #stillourchamp #bombzquad’.

Fury, as the winner of the second bout, would be entitled to a 60/40 percentage split of all the money on the line for the fight, plus the earnings from PPV and ticket sales.

Reality TV star and model Swift predicted before the highly-anticipated encounter that Wilder would knock out his opponent, and re-posted a picture on social media in an attempt to taunt Fury.

Wilder admitted after his corner conceded defeat that he would have preferred to continue to defend his crown, revealing he was prepared to ‘go out on my shield’.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren also believes that a rematch is likely to happen.

He told Metro: ‘Shelly Finkel [Wilder’s co-manager] rang me the morning after the fight to tell me they would probably invoke the immediate rematch.

‘So that’s where we’re at right now. I’m assuming that the trilogy fight is going ahead.’



Deontay Wilder planning new outfit for Tyson Fury’s Rematch

Cosmo and Donato, the creators of Deontay Wilder’s $40k costume he wore to the ring for his second bout with Tyson Fury have revealed that he’s already planning a new costume for Wilder-Fury III.

The American boxer wore a black and red armored bodysuit with a matching mask and crown to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the second bout. But was knocked down twice before his team threw in the towel in the seventh round to hand his British rival, 31, an epic win.

The next day after the fight, Wilder confirmed that he’ll be triggering his rematch clause to Tyson for the third time and claimed that his defeat was largely down to the 45-pound costume weakening his legs.

He told Yahoo: ‘He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is that my uniform was way too heavy for me.

‘I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through.

‘But I’m a warrior and people know that I’m a warrior. It could easily be told that I didn’t have legs or anything.

Despite his bizarre claims, Deontay Wilder has reportedly made contact with the designers, Cosmo’s Glamsquad about his next costume.

Speaking about their post-fight convo with Wilder, NobleSport learnt that Cosmo and Donato told the publication what the Bronze Bomber plans to do with his previous costume, and what they’re going to create for Wilder-Fury III.

“Deontay Wilder called me at home last night,” Crowley said … “We had an extensive, honest conversation that put confusion and rumors to rest.”

Cosmo said Deontay told him he considers the designer’s “family” and was “very clear that he looks forward to future collaborations.”

And, after they talked things out … “The subject of the call then turned to ‘Wilder v Fury III.”

Cosmo adds, “All of us consider it a privilege to contribute to the cultural and professional legacy of the iconic Deontay Wilder. As a fashion organization, I see no greater honor or responsibility that our team could be entrusted with.”


S’Arabia set to bid £400m to host Fury’s next match with Deontay or Joshua

Saudi Arabia’s royal family are set to bid an outrageous £400m to host Tyson Fury’s next fight after members of the Royal Family were ringside in Las Vegas to watch the Gypsy King’s ruthless win over Deontay Wilder at the weekend.

Fury defeated Wilder on Sunday morning to claim the WBC Heavyweight belt and Wilder confirmed on Tuesday that he will re-activate his rematch clause in their contract within the next 28 days but fans are clamoring for a fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua to determine the undisputed Heavyweight champion of the world.

Saudi Arabia to bid ?400m to host Tyson Fury?s next fight against Wilder or Joshua

A fight between Joshua and Fury will be an automatic sell out in the UK as both fighters are British, but the Saudi Royal family plan to bid 400 million pounds for Fury’s next fight seeing how much success they achieved with Joshua vs Ruiz in Riyadh last December.

”Fury has revealed that he will take on Anthony Joshua if the Bronze Bomber does not want a third fight.”Whoever the new WBC heavyweight champion takes on next, the Saudi Arabians want it to take place on their turf.”

Saudi Arabia to bid ?400m to host Tyson Fury?s next fight against Wilder or Joshua

”Prince Khaled was one of the Saudi royal family members in attendance at the MGM Grand on Saturday night.” The 41-year-old has been ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to bring major sporting events to their country.”

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren refused to rule out the possibility of Fury taking on AJ in Saudi Arabia.

He said: “In a dreamscape it should be in London, but they’re professional athletes. These guys have short careers, they go where the money is.

“I don’t know where it’s going to take place. Wherever the most money comes from.

“It’s the boxers who get in the ring and they’ll make the choices.”


Update: Deontay Wilder Get 6 Weeks Suspension After Defeat From Fury

Deontay Wilder has been handed a six-week medical suspension following his defeat by Tyson Fury.
The American was dropped twice by his challenger last Saturday before the fight was stopped in the seventh round when his corner threw in the towel.

Wilder was suspected to have burst his eardrum and was set to be taken to hospital but he ultimately needed just seven stitches for a cut in his ear.
And the Nevada State Athletic Commission have now said Wilder cannot spar until April 8 and cannot fight in the state until April 23.

That will not prevent him triggering the rematch clause in his contract for third fight with Fury, NobleSport gathered
The loser of last weekend’s bout had 30 days to do so and Wilder confirmed on Monday that he will seek his revenge.

“The rematch is definitely going to happen. We’re going to get it on. I want to get right back to it,” he said.
The trilogy fight was was due to take place on July 18 in Las Vegas but Fury’s promoter Bob Arum has said it could be pushed back until September or October and be held at the new Las Vegas Raiders’ stadium.

That could see a potential undisputed fight with Anthony Joshua delayed until 2021 after promoter Eddie Hearn said he wanted to make that fight this year.
Joshua is due to face mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20.

Wilder, meanwhile, has blamed his 40lb ring walk costume for weakening his legs before losing to Fury.
He told Yahoo: “He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is that my uniform was way too heavy for me.
“I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through.

“But I’m a warrior and people know that I’m a warrior. It could easily be told that I didn’t have legs or anything.
“A lot of people were telling me, ‘It looked like something was wrong with you.’ Something was, but when you’re in the ring, you have to bluff a lot of things.”


My Son Thinks Of Retiring After Defeating Wilder – Tyson’s Father Speaks

Tyson Fury’s father, John Fury, has revealed that he has told the new WBC champion to retire following his victory over Deontay Wilder and claims the Gypsy King is considering doing so.

John Fury, a former Heavyweight boxer says he will like his son to walk away from the sport now that he has achieved greatness as talk has already turned to a potential unification fight with Anthony Joshua, even though Wilder can trigger a trilogy fight.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Monday morning, he said: ‘I want my son to retire now. He’s done enough to prove.

‘It’s been an uphill battle for him. He’s done enough. I want him to pack it in now. ‘I think it’s in the back of his mind. He can’t do anymore. Enough is enough. He’s given all.’

‘I’ll be honest, I’m sat here today and I still keep pinching myself because where he was two years ago there was no hope, basically. ‘He was that low, he went that far back, I didn’t think he was ever going to get back. A light switch just went on and off and here we are today.

But I just think myself there’s more to life than we see with the eye, there’s got to be, because he was in such a mess. ‘It was a dark time, when you see a man who was like drinking himself to death to escape reality, and he was eating all kinds of food and a bucket load. And he was doing it in front of you. When your son stops caring what you think as a father and a parent, that’s time to worry.’

Tyson fury knockout Deontay Wilder in stunning rematch

...despite luis’s prediction

…Wilder suffered his first defeat

Tyson Fury reigns again as a heavyweight world champion after battering Deontay Wilder on the way to a stunning seventh-round stoppage in their World Boxing Council title rematch.

Fourteen months after their dramatic split-decision draw, Britain’s Fury dominated the American champion — who had blood streaming from his left ear and leaking from his mouth when referee Kenny Bayless called a halt at the behest of Wilder’s corner.

“The king has returned to the top of the throne,” said Fury, who had dropped Wilder in the third and fifth rounds as he remained unbeaten — and handed Wilder the first defeat of his career.

The self-styled “Gypsy King” from northern England — who was borne to the ring on a golden throne — had put on a boxing masterclass in their first fight, but he was clearly ready to brawl from the opening bell on Saturday.

A massive right from Fury knocked down Wilder in the third and Wilder struggled to regain his legs — although when he went down again moments later it was ruled a slip.

A left to the body had Wilder down again in the fifth, and Fury was raining blows on Wilder when Bayless called a halt at 1:39 of the seventh round after Wilder’s corner threw in the towel.

Wilder, 34, suffered his first defeat in 44 fights, falling to 42-1 with 1 drawn and 41 knockouts.

The “Bronze Bomber” was unable to surpass Muhammad Ali’s record of 10 successful heavyweight title defenses.

“I just want to say a big shout out Deontay Wilder,” said Fury, who improved his own unbeaten record to 30-0 with one drawn and 21 knockouts. “He manned up. he really did show heart of a champion.

“I hit him with a clean right hand and dropped him, and he got back up and battled on into round seven.

“He is a warrior, he will be back, he will be champion again.”

As a pro-Fury crowd at the MGM Grand cheered, Wilder briefly protested the stoppage.

‘A warrior’
“I just wish that my corner would have let me went out on my shield,” he said. “I’m a warrior.”

Wilder had knocked Fury down twice in their first fight in Los Angeles — the Briton miraculously climbing off the canvas in the 12th round to hang on for a share of the spoils.

With new trainer Javan “Sugarhill” Steward in his corner, and with more than 16 additional pounds on his 273-pound frame, Fury was on the attack early, backing Wilder up with his jab and landing several hard shots in the opening round.

He didn’t produce the second-round knockout he’d predicted, but he was clearly in control.

The fight, the biggest heavyweight collision since Lennox Lewis bludgeoned Mike Tyson into submission on the banks of the Mississippi River in 2002, drew a star-studded crowd.

Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Patrick Mahomes was ringside, so were Mark Davis, owner of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders and Raiders coach John Gruden.

Retired NBA greats Magic Johnson and Jerry West were on hand, as was current Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green.

With the rematch in the books, fight fans will be hoping to see Fury take on compatriot Anthony Joshua — holder of the IBF, WBA and WBO belts — in a heavyweight unification bout.


I am tipping Wilder to knockout Tyson Fury – Luis Ortiz

Having fought Deontay Wilder twice and got knocked out on both occasion, heavyweight boxer, Luis Ortiz says he is tipping Wilder to knockout Tyson Fury on Saturday.

Ortiz was clearly leading Wilder on points in their rematch last year when Wilder’s dangerous right hand landed on him in the 7th round and that was the end of the contest.

“Tyson Fury and Wilder are two different fighters, but I don’t think Wilder will respect him in the rematch, and I see the outcome by a knockout victory,” said Luis Ortiz.

Ortizs was recently knocked out by Wilder last November, so he seems to know what he’s talking about more than the other fighters that are predicting the outcome of the Wilder-Fury rematch.

Wilder has nothing to fear from Fury in this fight in terms of needing to be careful in avoiding his shots. So what we’re likely to see is a game of cat and mouse. Fury will be the big mouse running from the cat Wilder, and it’s only a matter of time before he gets caught by him, Boxing News 24 predicted.

In their first encounter, Fury, with his mobility was leading Wilder on points until he was brutally knocked down on two occasion. The referee scored the contest draw.


Tyson: Boxers no longer afraid of Anthony Joshua

he’s lost his fears

Heavy weight boxer, Tyson Fury has given a damning verdict on fellow Briton Anthony Joshua saying the latter had lost his fear factor.

Recall that the Nigerian born boxer only recently retrieved his world heavy weight titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in December. He had lost them to the Mexican six months earlier.

But after being knocked out in their first meeting – and boxing on the back foot in the rematch – Fury believes Joshua no longer sends chills through the division.

“Everyone has to do whatever they have to do to win a fight,” he said.

“I don’t think any of the fighters out there in the world are worried about AJ anymore, his bubble has well and truly been burst.

“No one is bothered about AJ anymore and they won’t be about Wilder either, when I burst his bubble too.”

It might be a while before Fury gets to battle it out with AJ however, for now he is preparing for his rematch with Deontay Wilder on Saturday week.
