Tyson Fury blasts ‘disgrace’ Anthony Joshua over loss to Ruiz

Tyson Fury sings

Tyson Fury ripped Anthony Joshua over his loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. on Saturday night.

Joshua was a heavy favorite entering his fight with Ruiz, who was a replacement fighter that only signed on for the fight around a month in advance. Joshua, who was regarded as the best heavyweight in the world, was knocked down four times by his largely unknown opponent, who won via 7th-round TKO.

Fury is one of the other top heavyweights in the world and appeared on “The Sedano Show” on ESPN Radio Los Angeles Tuesday. He called Joshua a “disgrace” for his loss to Ruiz.

Fury, 30, is part of a suddenly exciting heavyweight division in boxing. His biggest career accomplishment came in 2015 when he beat Wladimir Klitschko. Then last year he fought Deontay Wilder to a draw with a stunning comeback. Though he signed with Top Rank, he and Wilder are expecting to meet in a rematch after each of their next fights. Ruiz Jr. and Joshua are likely to have a rematch at the end of the year too. If Joshua could ever fight Wilder and/or Fury, the division would generate much more appeal and buzz. Fury seems to be welcoming that by calling Joshua a “disgrace.”
