Tyson Fury: 1’m The Nigerian Nightmare, I Want To Fight Anthony Joshua In Lagos, Nigeria
British boxing heavyweight Tyson Fury has said he wants to fight Anthony Joshua, who is of Nigerian descent, in the Nigerian city of Lagos.
Fury has been trading words with Joshua since the Nigerian-born boxer defeated Wladimir Klitschko in April to become the world heavy champion.
Fury said, “It may not be at Wembley, the fight might be in Nigeria in Lagos. I’ve heard they’ve got a 180,000-seater there.
“So considering I’m the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ now then we’ll go over there.
“Or it could be in Ireland at Croke Park, that holds a lot of people or it could be at Wembley, you never know
Fury is hopeful of fighting Joshua in November or December if he gets his boxing licence back and has also promised to fly the Nigerian (Joshua is of Nigerian descent) flag during the fight.
“I’ve seen your type many times. The man who can’t speak his own mind, the plastic Nigerian. I’m more Nigerian than you! I’ll fly the flag for Nigeria when we fight. GYPSY MAN. Represents the world. Ali had words for a man like you, they were Uncle Tom,” Fury wrote on Instagram.
