Tyson Fury is currently in “retirement,” but that hasn’t stopped ‘The Gyspy King’ from going after Joe Joyce on social media.
The WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Champion was last seen in action in April at Wembley Stadium. Fury dominated Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 fans in another defense of his heavyweight throne. He wound up winning the bout via a sixth-round knockout.
Following the contest, the 33-year-old announced his retirement. Despite that, rumors surrounding his eventual return have been making the rounds. UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua, and more have all been linked to potential fights with Fury.
Fans can now add another heavyweight contender to the list linked to a fight with Fury. On the Unibet Lowdown podcast, Joyce discussed a possible fight with the heavyweight champion. There, ‘Juggernaut’ noted that his gameplan would be to wear down Fury and finish him.
Fury responded to the video on Instagram, stating that the only way someone could defeat him was with a bat while he was sleeping. In response, Joyce stated that he thought the 33-year-old was retired, and if not, they could fight.
