Fury stated, “Hi guys, Tyson Fury here, AKA the Gypsy King. I’ve just seen Joshua lose for the second time to Usyk – out of his depth. However, England has been relieved of its belts yet again, as usual. But, there is a remedy and a solution that I can suggest. If you want those belts back, then send in the Gypsy Barbarian, of England, come on. Send me in, I will relieve the Ukrainian dosser of his belts like I did the last Ukrainian dosser, but it’s not gonna be cheap. If you want the best, then you’ve gotta pay. It’s going to be very expensive, so get your f***g cheque book out and I will relieve that Ukrainian dosser of them belts YOU KNOW!”
