Tyson Fury slams Anthony Joshua for allowing "little steroid man" Oleksandr Usyk to beat him

'After all my hard work! You big useless dosser. You’ve let a little steroid man come up from middleweight and set about you'

Tyson Fury has slammed Anthony Joshua for allowing "little steroid man" Oleksandr Usyk to take his world title belts, vowing to reclaim all the heavyweight gold.

Joshua lost his IBF, WBO and WBA belts after being defeated by the Ukrainian Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.

Fury - who held all of the aforementioned belts when he became the first man to beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 - vacated the titles as he battled addiction and mental health issues.

However, 'The Gypsy King' has since reclaimed the famous WBC belt when he defeated Deontay Wilder in February 2020, and now has his sights set on unifying the heavyweight division.

In a video shared on Instagram, and later Twitter, the 33-year-old criticised his British rival for losing the belts to Usyk, who dominated the cruiserweight division before moving up to become a two-weight champion.

While Joshua has the chance reclaim his titles when he faces-off against Usyk again in April, Fury insists it will be up to him take the belts back from Usyk and unify the division.

He said: "You know what I can’t believe, that AJ has gone and given Ukraine all the heavyweight belts back.

"After all my hard work! You big useless dosser. You’ve let a little steroid man come up from middleweight and set about you!

"And take all your belts. It’s going to take a real British, Lancaster bomber like me to go and relieve the useless little 'sted-head' of the belts and get them back to Britain. You useless dossers.

"Honestly, bring 'em to me and I'll put 'em in their place again."

With Joshua set to fight Usyk, Fury and Dillian Whyte have been given an extra week by the WBC to solve their dispute over the purse split ahead of their world title fight this year.
