Tyson Fury Roasts Anthony Joshua For Ruiz Loss, Calls Him "Finished"

Tyson Fury and Tom Schwarz had plenty to talk about in a recent media conference call. Yet there's still a certain amount of pressure upon Fury to put on a show and win emphatically as a way to make a statement regarding his standing within the division. Now, it's Tyson Fury's turn.

He not only lost his heavyweight titles but also his spot as the No.1 heavyweight in world boxing. I feel fantastic at the minute. "He's taken the advice and Ben Davison tells me things are going very well".

"I'm back where I belong, a year after coming back, back on top of the world as the number one rated heavyweight on the planet". It's quite humbling, to be honest. "Seeing your face on all the movie screens and posters is great".

"I'm very proud of Tyson". I only had six months of activity before that. You can come back from anything.

"With his performance against Wilder, he couldn't really have gained any more fans, it was such a spectacular display and I think there will be a lot of interest in him".

"I was down and out".

"Well, you can't kick a man when he's down", Fury told Behind The Gloves' Michelle Joy Phelps. He used to text me back and forth.

"I am living the dream".

But his message failed to gain much traction in a party consumed with Britain's stalled departure from the European Union. The victor will become new party leader and automatically replace May as premier, most likely at the end of July.

"He used to text me back and forth". There is nothing else that I wanted to do.

"It'd be something of history because they have never fought [in the Azteca] two heavyweight world champions". So now, everything is a bonus. "I'm one of the only people who is living what they want to do". "Very easy! So, this is a big boxing fight".

Fight in the United Kingdom or the US? "My time is now!" I ve won 24 fights. "He has taught me the American style".

And now we sit days away from the Gypsy King's Las Vegas debut against Schwarz, who many see as a proverbial bowling pin for Fury to knock down. He is a great promoter, too. On Saturday night, it's my time. "I hope it inspired many people as I enjoyed getting up off that canvas and fighting on". The job of a promoter, as Frank would attest, can be very hard. "How many years Wilder and Tyson Fury hit 100-0 and 100-0 and people beg 'please make this fight.'" . You gotta give them scripts as to what to say. "In fact, he's taken a little bit of positivity that he managed to go four rounds after that because he says, you know, my senses weren't there". "If you can fight you can fight, if you can't you can forget about it". "But we need to go step by step" - quoted by Andy edition.
