The Time Tyson Fury Called Out England's Lucy Bronze Instead of Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury once called out England Lionesses defender Lucy Bronze for a fight instead of Deontay Wilder.
Fury was set to fight Derek Chisora back on July 26 2014 but Chisora pulled out of the fight a few days before.
Fury then decided to call out current rival Deontay Wilder and sent out a tweet.
Unfortunately, he didn't tag @BronzeBomber which is Wilder's handle but tagged @LucyBronze instead.
The tweet reads:
"Told you all what would happen find me a real man to find the furious1. Pussys pussys pussys. @LucyBronze I want u punk.?"
Bronze took the tweet in good humour and responded back quickly.
Hahaha the tweets I'm getting because of this....
Sorry to let everyone down, but I'm unavailable for a fight :thumbsdown: :punch::muscle::joy: pic.twitter.com/lPCWXQ8Yk5
- Lucy Bronze (@LucyBronze) July 21, 2014
Fury realised the mistake he'd made and deleted the tweet before admitting to his error.
Bronze at the time will have just won her second WSL title with Liverpool but you doubt that she had her sights on stepping into the ring with Tyson Fury.
Bronze has gone on to be one of the best players for the Lionesses and currently plays for Lyon's women's team.
Fury on the other hand did end up fighting both Chisora and Wilder eventually.
He defeated Chisora in November 2014 to become European, WBO International, British heavyweight champion.
The Wilder fight came four years later in December 2018 and it ended in a controversial draw.
The two have gone back and forth about a rematch over the last year but it seems it's now penciled in for February 2020.
Fury fired back at Wilder earlier this month who said Fury was scared of fighting the American again.
Fury said in a video on Instagram:
"You should be on 20 per cent [for our rematch], but you're not and I'm giving you a fair share because I'm a fair man.
"I don't ask for anything in this world, I work hard for everything.
"The thing is with you, Wilder, crack on with your own business and I'll see you February 22 to finish what I started.
"This time you're going to get smashed, you big bum dosser."
Who do you think will win the rematch between the two?
