Boxing fans across the globe were given another shocker as Tyson Fury pulls out of the all Brits bout. The WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, berated Anthony Joshua, a fellow Brit, describing him as a coward for failing to sign a contract offer for a bout before the deadline elapsed.
Fury had issued an ultimatum to Joshua to sign the contract by 5pm on Monday or he would walk away from the deal.
Though Joshua’s camp had publicly confirmed they have accepted all the terms of Fury’s deal.
Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, had also confirmed the contract to officially rubber stamp the fight was on its way to Joshua’s team.
Joshua said on Sunday he would sign the contract to fight Fury after the WBC champion issued an ultimatum.
However, on Monday evening, Fury took to Instagram again to say no signed contract had been sent back.
“Well, guys, it’s official. D-Day has come and gone. It’s gone past five o’clock on Monday, no contract has been signed,” he said.
“It’s officially over for Joshua. He is now out in the cold with the wolf pack, forget about it. Id**t. Coward!”
He added: “I always knew you didn’t have the minerals to fight the Gypsy King. Good luck with your career, and your life.”
This dramatic turn of events amidst preparations of boxing fans across the globe to witness an all Brits affair in the heavyweight division of professional boxing is now hanging in the balance with the tentative cancellation of the anticipated Joshua-Fury cracker earlier scheduled for December 2022.Follow us on social media
