Tyson Fury Brands Anthony Joshua A "Disgrace" In Savage Rant
Tyson Fury has changed his tune and launched a scathing rant at Anthony Joshua following his devastating loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.
The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' initially offered a positive reaction to Joshua's first professional defeat while issuing some words of encouragement.
He was a class act on social media in the immediate aftermath of Joshua's nightmare American debut.
However, the lineal heavyweight champion has now launched a brutal verbal attack on Joshua's performance.
"You don't judge a book by its cover and it doesn't mean anything at heavyweight if you're chubby," he said.
"I looked at Joshua and I seen that he didn't want to be in the ring on the night. He was looking away he had other things on his mind.
"From round one I could see what was going to happen. I looked at Joshua and he didn't have no water, no sweat on him and I thought this guys is going to get knocked out.
"His [Joshua] style and his [Ruiz Jr] style aren't made to go together, and Andy will always beat AJ in my opinion.
"Can you imagine? You're built like an Adonis, you're six-foot-six, you're ripped, carved in stone, and a little fat man who has eaten every Snickers and Mars bar in California comes in there and bladders you all over? What a disgrace.
"If that was me, I would never show my face in public ever again."
Joshua and Ruiz Jr will meet again after his promoter Eddie Hearn triggered the contracted rematch clause. They're expected to fight in the U.K before the end of the year.

Fury, on the other hand, returns to the ring against Tom Schwarz on June 15 in Las Vegas. He's then expected to rematch Deontay Wilder, who's slated to face Luis Ortiz next.
The WBC champion also didn't hold back when giving his views on Joshua failing to defend his world titles.
He wasn't a true champion. His whole career was consisted of lies, contradictions and gifts.- Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) June 2, 2019
