Tyson Fury goes wild on ‘little steroid head’ Oleksandr Usyk and ‘useless’ Anthony Joshua in wild rant

| Business Top stories | Fox News

When Tyson Fury won the WBA, IBF, IBO and The Ring heavyweight titles in 2015, he did so against famed Ukrainian fighter Wladimir Klitschko. Now the Linear Champion is ready to start all over again.

Fury, training on Instagram Live, discussed the heavyweight title shot which also features WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champions Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua. Usyk beat Joshua in September to win the titles, and the two are set to face off in a rematch this year. The hope is that Fury fights the winner of this matchup to unify the division.

Upset that the process is taking longer than expected and that Fury is just Fury, the current WBC heavyweight champion lashed out at Joshua and Usyk, accusing the latter of taking steroids.

“I can’t believe AJ (Anthony Joshua) walked away and gave all the heavyweight belts back to Ukraine after all my hard work to get them,” Fury said, via The Sun. “You useless big doser! You let a little steroid man out of the middleweight and take care of you and take all your belts. Gonna have to take a real British Lancaster Bomber, like me, to go relieve the little head of belts useless steroid and bring them back to Brittany.

“Kinds of useless dosers!” Bring them to me, the Gypsy King. Bring them to me and I will put them back in their place and relieve them of the belts again.

From previous reports, Usyk never tested positive for steroids.

What Fury is referring to is the “Klitschko era” of boxing. Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko dominated the heavyweight division for years. Vitali was the WBC heavyweight champion from 2008 to 2012. From 2006 until Fury beat him in 2015, Wladimir held the IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA titles.

The Ukrainian rule dramatically altered the heavyweight division, with the title challengers shrinking with each performance. For a brief time, Fury was a breath of fresh air within the division until personal issues, including drug and nandrolone (an anabolic steroid) use, forced the titles to be relinquished. Fury has since redeemed himself and recently defeated Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title in February 2020 to end a historic trilogy. Now he wants to bring those titles back to Team Fury, even if he has to wait a bit.

Usyk, a former undisputed cruiserweight champion, has close ties to Wladimir Klitschko. He credits Wladimir for helping him defend against heavy punches, working as a sparring partner. Joshua also met Klitschko, beating him in 2017 to retain the IBF heavyweight title and win the WBA and IBO titles. It would be the last fight of Klitschko’s career.

Klitschko would respond to Fury’s comments, indicating, “@Tyson_Fury, you live in a glass house, and someone needs to take your stones away from you. Not long before our fight, you REALLY tested positive. Anyone can google it . Stay chic !!! “

Not one to be outdone, Fury fired back, saying: “Wladimir, you have some nerve to come back after all these years and open your big mouth. You never even landed a punch, I took you off all your belts. Look, these were once yours, mush, now they’re mine. Dossing useless, keep dreaming.”

Fury is a former English, European, British, Commonwealth and Irish heavyweight champion. He faced some of the best fighters in the world including Derek Chisora, Christian Hammer and Otto Wallin. He currently has a list of opponents who want to face him, including Andy Ruiz Jr., Robert Helenius and Dillian Whyte.

If a unified title fight were to take place, a Fury victory would bring us back to square one. In what can only be described as six degrees of separation, Fury faces those close to the man who helped build his career. A win, by him or his opponent really, would once again restore order to the heavyweight division. However, Fury’s raised hand would result in the biggest comeback in boxing history that would end in a big way.
