Fury Predicts ‘Big 2023’ As ‘Gypsy King’ Celebrates Win Against Chisora

2 mins read

Tyson Fury was at his devastating best late Saturday night (early Sunday in Nigeria) as he defeated David Chisora to retain his WBC version of the title with a 10th-round stoppage.

The Brit on Sunday went on to predict that the year 2023 would be the biggest year of his career.

Fury was dominant in the fight at the 60,000-capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium witnessed by Oleksandr Usyk, the holder of the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles. Usyk had beaten Anglo-Nigerian Anthony Joshua.

The self-styled “Gypsy King” threw a challenge at Usyk and insisted that he is not mindful of where it will hold.

Fury also made a sly dig at Joshua whom he accused of avoiding a fight between them.

“I’m ready and willing to take on Usyk whether it is in Saudi Arabia or back here in the United Kingdom,” Fury told a post-fight press conference.

“Let’s give the fans one champion, one name, one face. He’s not an easy boxer to figure out, he’s slick, a southpaw, moves well, coming in on good form and I look forward to the challenge.

“But for whatever reason if we’re not able to do that, then we will have Joe Joyce at Wembley. I’ll do Usyk and then Joyce at Wembley as well.

A fight between Fury and Joshua was expected in October but differences in contract negotiations saw the possibility evaporate.

“I want to fight real men, real challenges,” said Fury. “Usyk came over here and got in my face. We (Fury and Joshua) live in the same country but have you ever seen AJ do that after a fight?

“In the heavyweight rankings you have number one, me and then the next three – Usyk, Joyce and Deontay Wilder.

“If I fight Usyk, maybe Joyce could fight Wilder – that would be fantastic,” explained Fury, who in three bouts with the American won two and drew one.

Joshua has not a declaration on his 2023 projection.
