After the controversial draw with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury has called Anthony Joshua a chicken as he challenged his heavyweight rival to take him on the ring, DailyMail Sports reports.
Both fighters are keen on a rematch after Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight belt on the judges’ decision, but Fury also called out AJ straight away.
‘Nevermind anybody, me and this man here are the two best heavyweights on the planet. I stepped up after the amount of time I had out of the ring’, he said.
‘There’s another certain heavyweight out there…’ he continued, before doing a chicken impersonation.
‘Chicken! Chicken!’, he screamed. ‘Joshua, where are you? Where are you AJ? AJ?’, he roared.
Wilder added: ‘I totally 100 per cent agree with that. We’re the two best in the world and we proved it tonight. When you get two warriors in the ring you get a great fight.’
Despite being knocked down twice, Fury believed he had the edge in the fight.
He said: ‘I got knocked down twice but I still believe I won the fight and I believe every man in here thought I won that fight tonight.
‘But I’m showing total professionalism here. I’m a true champion, a true warrior. I went to Germany to fight Klitshcko, I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder. Bless Deontay Wilder, he’s a top fighting man.
‘God bless America, the Gypsy King has returned!’
Asked how he managed to avoid Wilder’s jabs he answered: ‘That’s what I do, I’m what you call a professional athlete who loves to box.
‘I’m 6ft 9in and 260lbs, I don’t know anybody on the planet who can move like that. That man is a fearsome puncher, but I avoided his shots tonight.
‘The world knows the truth, I thought I won the fight. I thought I should have took that belt home.
‘I am a fighting man, I was never going to be knocked out tonight. I showed good heart to get back. I fought my heart out. That’s the second best heavyweight in the world behind me.’
