Tyson Fury Reacts After Anthony Joshua's Altercation With University Students

Tyson Fury Reacts After Anthony Joshua's Altercation With University Students

Tyson Fury has had his say on the incident between Anthony Joshua and students who heckled him

Tyson Fury has reacted after an incident involving his rival Anthony Joshua and a group of university students went viral.

Former heavyweight world champion Joshua was filmed telling a group of students to “watch their mouths” after they taunted him about avoiding a fight with Fury. 

In the footage, Joshua also threatened to crack the students’ jaws, he was filmed saying: "Remember you’re running your mouth because when I start cracking your glass jaws, none of you will like it."

"Watch your mouths because you don’t know who you’re talking to sometimes."

The incident took place near Loughborough University, the base for Joshua’s preparations ahead of his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk, the fight is at the moment scheduled for July 23. 

Since the video of the altercation between Joshua and the students went online, Fury has now reacted and took to social media to give his thoughts.

He simply tweeted: “I have this effect on the best of them.”along with a picture of the Joshua incident making headline news. 

Joshua and Fury were meant to fight it out in the ring after a deal looked set to be agreed last summer, but a last minute twist prevented the fight going ahead. Fury was ordered to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time instead.

Since then, Joshua had lost to Usyk and Fury had despatched the challenge from Dillian Whyte in a packed out Wembley last month to retain his heavyweight titles.

After his victory over Whyte, Fury stated that he will not return to the ring by announcing his retirement.

Joshua however, continued his attempts to lure Fury back into the ring. In a recent Q&A with the Oxford Union, he referenced a 'gentleman's agreement' between the two fighters.

He said: "If Fury would honour the boxers agreement and come out of retirement because ultimately what is at my core it is about the money."

"If Fury will come out and honour the gentleman's agreement there is a lot of money to be made."

It remains to be seen whether the long standing rivalry between Fury and Joshua will end in the ring, but for that to happen, Joshua would have to regain the belts he lost to Usyk first before trying to tempt Fury into the ring again.
