Tyson Fury joked that heavyweight legend Luis Ortiz is a time traveler after posting a photo from more than 100 years ago.
Ortiz is 42 years old, but his exact age has long been a lie within the boxing community.
Even his former rival Deontay Wilder once questioned how old Ortiz really is.
And now 33-year-old Fury has jumped on the joke, as he posted a pristine photo of Jack Johnson – the first African-American heavyweight boxing champion.
But next to the great fighter looks like either an Ortiz – or a photoshopped picture of Cuba.
The current heavyweight contender has challenged for the WBC title twice, losing to Wilder twice in 2018 and again in 2019.
And before the rematch, the former US champion poked fun at Ortiz’s age.
Wilder, now 36, said: “He told me he’s 40, but, on his face, he looks about 45. But I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say he’s 40.” .

“He may be 50. But how many 50-year-old men do you know who are going to step into the ring with me for the second time?
Whatever Ortiz’s age, he is proving it’s just a number, ousting recent former IBF champion Charles Martin, 35.
And after little teasing of Fury on social media, Ortiz was hoping for some revenge.
He told EsNEWS: “I want to fight Andy Ruiz, I want to fight Dillian White. Fury has no opponents, I’m ready for anyone.”
