Bring Fury Knight
What happened last night? Fury stopped Chisora in the 10th round of their heavyweight world title fight on Saturday night, extending his professional record to 34 fights without defeat (33-1-0). The whole crowd was full of stars from around the world and none other than Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney was there to watch the showpiece event.
“He’s the best we’ve seen for a long time,” Rooney told TalkSport. “I don’t think anyone will beat him. He’s an absolute legend, what he’s done for boxing. He’s entertaining, his skills are incredible and his mentality is incredible.”
He’s not afraid to fight internationally, he’s won titles internationally and defended them internationally. He sums up everything boxing is.
According to Tyson Fury, it is puzzling that Anthony Joshua has not confronted him in the ring, after years of British rivalry.
Fury dominated his British rival, Derek Chisora last night, in the end of their trilogy. The fight was stopped early, because Fury missed Joshua’s deadline to sign a contract for yesterday’s date, and the potential title fight with Joshua collapsed.
The British pair have been long-term rivals for many years, but they have only come face-to-face once during an encounter abroad while on vacation. And Fury has praised Joshua’s recent conqueror Usyk after he traveled to London. Yesterday, he became involved in a heated altercation with his fellow champion shortly after the fight ended.
