‘Chinned the pair of p****s’ – Tyson Fury says Mike Tyson would KO Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk in legend’s prime
TYSON FURY backed a prime Mike Tyson to knock out ‘pair of p****s’ Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.
Joshua was outpointed by Usyk over 12 rounds in September, losing his unified WBA, IBF and WBO titles.
And while most considered it a boxing masterclass, the division’s youngest ever champion had an alternate view.
Tyson, who first reigned aged 20, tweeted at the time: “After watching the Joshua vs Usyk fight, maybe they had a bad day that night.
“From that performance do you really think they could have beat me in my prime?”
Fury, only responding to the comment now, posted: “@MikeTyson you would of (sic) chinned the pair of p****s.”
Tyson, 55, made a remarkable comeback in November 2020 and drew in an exhibition with fellow American legend Roy Jones Jr, 52.
He vowed to return again and even opened the door to a remarkable fight for the ages against Fury, 33, or Joshua, 32.
