British boxer Tyson Fury has continued his trash-talking with Anthony Joshua by claiming he wants to fight with the Nigerian-born boxer in Lagos. Fury has been trading words with Joshua since the Nigerian-born boxer defeated Wladimir Klitschko in April to become the world heavy champion.
In an Instagram post recently, Fury claimed to be more Nigerian than Joshua and has now added that he wants their potential fight to happen in Lagos. (The AJ fight) might be in Nigeria in Lagos, I’ve heard they’ve got an 180,000-seater there,” Fury told iFilmTV. “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.” Fury is hopeful of fighting Joshua in November or December if he gets his boxing licence back and has also promised to fly the Nigerian (Joshua is of Nigerian descent) flag during the fight.
“I’ve seen your type many times. The man who can’t speak his own mind, the plastic Nigerian. I’m more Nigerian than you! I’ll fly the flag for Nigeria when we fight. GYPSY MAN. Represents the world. Ali had words for a man like you, they were Uncle Tom,” Fury wrote on Instagram.
