I didn’t write right away about the last Fury “fight.”
Okay, bone spurs suck. I’ve got some in my wrist, and I can’t have surgery soon enough. So I sympathize with Fury on that score. He needs to get elbow surgery, let him have it. Funny though, remember when Usyk beat Joshua the second time? He called out Fury, but said he had first to get surgery (as I recall) on his elbows. And Fury, of course, did the gentlemanly thing and signed a contract to fight Usyk as soon as he was healed up.
Ha ha! I make a funny joke!
No, he railed against Usyk, calling him cowardly, etc., then he mounted the greatest campaign of non-fighting chicanery I have ever seen a champion do. I won’t bore you recounting all his lies and machinations here, you can read about them below. But he ducked Usyk, Joshua, Joyce and other mandatory challengers in order to fight Chisora; a fight no one wanted to see. (By no one, I mean me. I have a pretty high opinion of myself.) And the denouement of this sordid tale? Fury is now doing precisely the same thing that he railed at Usyk for.
They need to take his belt away. Come on, WBC. Grow a pair. Put this fallacious gasbag back on the outside, looking in. Maybe then he’ll want to fight.
Maybe we can get Joyce his long-awaited return bout with Usyk. That one I will pay to see.
Fury’s sideshow? No thanks.
