'Chinned the pair of p****s'

Tyson Fury backed a prominent Mike Tyson to oust the ‘p****s duo’ Anthony Joshua and Alexander Usik.

Joshua was outpointed in September by Usyak in round 12, losing his unified WBA, IBF and WBO titles.

And while most considered it a boxing masterclass, the division’s youngest ever champion had an alternative approach.

Tyson, who first reigned at age 20, tweeted at the time: “After watching the Joshua vs Usyk fight, he probably had a bad day that night.

“From that performance do you really think they could have beat me to my prime?”

Fury, responding to the comment only now, posted: “@MikeTyson you (sic) turned down a pair of p****s.”

Tyson, 55, made a remarkable comeback in November 2020 and took part in an exhibition with fellow US veteran Roy Jones Jr., 52.

He vowed to return again and even opened the door to a remarkable battle for the ages against Fury, 33, or Joshua, 32.

But right now, AJ is set to take on the 35-year-old Usyk again after his loss in London last year.

Meanwhile, Fury still lingers in talks with Mandatory challenger Dillian White.

White, 33, is set to receive only 20 percent of the purse split, a decision she has appealed against.

This has seen purse bids continually pushed back as the WBC confirmed the latest delay.

He tweeted: “@WBCBoxing has received requests from both sides @Tyson_Fury and @DillianWhite to extend the period of free talks which have been granted.

“If there is no agreement, there will be a purse offer ceremony on Wednesday, January 26.”
