British boxer Tyson Fury has bragged about fighting against Anthony Joshua in Nigeria, claiming he is the ‘Nigerian nightmare’.
The 27-year-old Nigerian-British boxer defeated Wladmir Klitshchko to win the WBO and IBF heavyweight titles in Wembley, London. After the bout, Joshua called out Fury, challenging the former heavyweight champ to a bout.
Fury has also hinted a possible return to the ring following his hiatus from the game, while also boasting ahead of the proposed fight.
He said: “It may not be at Wembley, the fight might be in Nigeria in Lagos. I’ve heard they’ve got a 180,000-seater there.
“So considering I’m the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ now then we’ll go over there.
“Or it could be in Ireland at Croke Park, that holds a lot of people or it could be at Wembley, you never know.”
Talking about Joshua’s victory over Klitschko, Fury said: it was “exciting for a boxing fan, but not so good for an actual boxer taking lots of punishment getting bounced off the canvas”.
“It was good for me because he got the best result, he got a lot of mileage out on the clock and got the win to save my money in the bank.
“He got exposed a bit too, everyone knows he’s not irresistible now because he can be sparkled.
“Klitschko let him off the hook and started boxing – I don’t know what he was doing.
“AJ never threw a punch for three rounds and was wobbling on his feet and Klitschko was just looking at him (like) ‘Shall I knock him out or not’?”
