Tyson Fury fought Deontay Wilder to a draw last night in Los Angeles, and after the fight couldn’t help but get a couple digs in at Anthony Joshua, the media rival of both himself and Wilder.
“I felt (Wilder’s power),” he admitted after being knocked down twice, including a 12th round drop that looked like it had ended things.
“No wonder AJ didn’t want no part of that right hand! He can’t move like me, he’d have been nailed!”
He also talked about taking the fight when Joshua did not.
“I am a true bred fighting man. Wilder came over the UK. He called out Joshua. (Joshua) got offered a lot of money — a lot of money,” Fury said. “Money that could change countries, probably. And he turned it down.
“I said to Deontay, ‘I’m sorry for what’s happened to you, but if you offer me the fight I will not turn you down, I promise you. I am a fighting man, I’ll step up and represent my country.’ And tonight I did that. It was a great opportunity. Deontay Wilder’s a good man, a good fighting man, and I respect him.”
