    EXCUSES GOT WILDER AND WILDER

    Tyson Fury has praised Anthony Joshua for handling his loss to Oleksandr Usyk with class – unlike his opponent Deontay Wilder.

    AJ was schooled by the Ukrainian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month but made no excuses for his devastating loss, which ended his second reign as unified heavyweight champ.

    That was in stark contrast to former WBC champion Wilder, who spouted several unfounded conspiracy theories after his defeat to Fury last February.

    And Fury believes Joshua’s handling of the loss – as well as his shock 2019 defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr – is a testament to his character.

    Ahead of his rematch with The Bronze Bomber on Sunday morning, Fury said: “You’ve seen Anthony Joshua lose all his belts to Oleksandr Usyk.

    “He didn’t make any excuses, he didn’t cry about it.

    “Same with the Andy Ruiz Jr knockout, never made excuses.

    “That, in my opinion, is a different man than what I’m facing.”

    BODY OF EVIDENCE

    A body language expert has claimed Tyson Fury had the edge over Deontay Wilder BEFORE the first bell rang.

    Fury dethroned the American of the WBC title in February 2020, after they drew two years beforehand and they now meet in a trilogy on Saturday.

    The Gypsy King walked in on a throne, with a crown on his head to the tune of Patsy Cline's 1961 classic 'Crazy'.

    And according to expert Mark Bowden, who teamed up with Parimatch, Fury's ring walk oozed confidence.

    Here, he explains the key factors which put the unbeaten champion on the path to victory.

    • Tyson has the power
    • All hail the Gypsy King
    • Fury holds the dominance
    • A 'crazy' Fury approaching
    • Wilder offers no threat

      AWDIJAN THE MAN FOR EUBANK

      Chris Eubank Jr will make his return on October 16 against German Wanik Awdijan.

      The middleweight saw his comeback fight last week dramatically cancelled on the day after Anatoli Muratov was withdrawn on medical grounds.

      Instead, Eubank Jr, 31, will face Awdijan, 26, who has only boxed in Germany and Austria, next Saturday.

      Headlining the night is Savannah Marshall, 30, who defends her WBO middleweight title against undefeated challenger Lolita Muzeya, 30.

      Also on the bill is heavyweight Hughie Fury, 27, against Christian Hammer, 34, who in 2015 was beaten by his cousin Tyson, 31.

      Eubank Jr is now a late addition on the undercard but will get his chance to return ahead of a promised pay-per-view blockbuster in December.

      He said: "It was always the plan to get straight back out.

      "The cancellation was completely unexpected, it's a rare situation, it was frustrating, but I get it – some things are out of everybody's control.

      "Now, I'm looking forward to getting back in the ring and fighting in Newcastle."

      TYSON HAILS GOAT CRISTIANO

      Tyson Fury took time out of his busy schedule to praise Cristiano Ronaldo after the Manchester United star was named the Premier League player of the month.

      Ronaldo, 36, picked up the award for the fifth time in his career – 13 years after he last won it.

      Ronaldo scored three goals in three league games during September to make an immediate impact after arriving at the end of August.

      Old Trafford was transformed on his second debut against Newcastle with fans giving him a huge reception on his return.

      And Fury, who is a massive United fan, was delighted to see the Portuguese recognised.

      Under United's Instagram post sharing the news Fury commented: "CR7 the GOAT."

      While Fury is no doubt a huge fan of Ronaldo, he is determined to replace him as the biggest attraction in Manchester, claiming the city is not big enough for the both of them.

      The heavyweight world champion still took time out of his fight preparation to shower praise on CR7 however.

      CONOR SLAMS DEJA KAMARU

      Conor McGregor appears to think UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman has copied his gimmick again.

      The UFC's poster boy has accused the Nigerian Nightmare of stealing his schtick on multiple occasions.

      After seeing the promotion's first African-born champion run through Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261, McGregor tweeted: "Usman even copying my shots now.

      "Am I to fight this guy at some stage? I think so.

      "Can’t be copying my words and my shots and not get a smack for it. I like 170. It’s mine soon."

      Since that tweet, MMA fans have been hot on Usman in case he echoed any of The Notorious' sayings.

      And some noticed his recent pitch for a boxing match with Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez was similar to McGregor's planting of the seed for his mega-money showdown with Floyd Mayweather.

      When discussing the welterweight title picture with The Schmo, Usman said: “I might have to go drag Canelo out… you know.

      "When he’s done with all these guys that he’s running through.

      "It’s never been done, I might have to drag him, if not in the Octagon, I might have to drag him in the ring and actually take him.

      "Because pound-for-pound, it’s never been done. Pound-for-pound [best] MMA fighter and pound-for-pound [best] boxer.

      "So, that might be next if these guys can’t prove that they’re the next number one contender.”

      FURY'S CAFFEINE CRAVING

      When you’re 6ft 9in, 19 stone and the heavyweight champion of the world, you need to eat a lot of food – especially before a big fight.

      And Tyson Fury is no exception to the rule – consuming 5,000 CALORIES A DAY ahead of his third meeting with Deontay Wilder on Saturday.

      Nutritionist and chef George Lockhart revealed the Gypsy King’s incredible diet during an interview with leading coffee retailer Coffee Friend.

      He said: “First thing in the morning Tyson is definitely going to have a coffee with his breakfast and what he eats is dictated by the activities of the day.

      “But one thing that’s constant every single day is he has: one fish, one chicken, and one red meat throughout the day in each one of his meals.

      “It might go up and it might go down but he consumes about 5,000 calories a day.”

      FURY'S ROCKY BUILD-UP

      Tyson Fury is just hours away from stepping into battle for a third time against Deontay Wilder.

      And the Gypsy King’s journey to the trilogy blockbuster has been far from plain sailing.

      Rival promoter Eddie Hearn, still smarting after his man Anthony Joshua lost all his belts to Oleksandr Usyk, believes Fury is ‘not ready’ for the fight.

      And the 33-year-old’s preparation has indeed hasn’t been as smooth as it could have been.

      FURY: AJ MADE NO EXCUSES… UNLIKE WILDER

      ARABIAN FIGHT

      Anthony Joshua's do-or-die rematch with Oleksandr Usyk could take place in the Middle East.

      The Watford warrior, 31, will share the ring with the southpaw technician early next year after having the unified heavyweight titles ripped from his grasp last month.

      Undefeated Ukrainian Usysk wants his first title defence to take place on home soil, but promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed several Middle Eastern countries have tabled 'offers' to host the fight.

      He told The BBC: "Usyk has mentioned Kiev in his home country Ukraine as a potential venue and we will look at all options.

      "When AJ heard about that he didn't have an issue with it and found it quite exciting.

      "I would like to do it back in the UK and we've had offers from the Middle East but we will see what's the best opportunity for both fighters.

      "I don't think the venue makes much difference in how AJ has to fight."

      Matchroom Boxing chief Hearn is hoping to give Joshua his crack at redemption in the spring of 2022.

      MUCH ABDO ABOUT A BOUT

      TV presenter Kate Abdo has hit back at boxing promoter Bob Arum after he aimed a foul-mouthed tirade at her.

      The 89-year-old American was seething at what he believed was Abdo ‘favouring’ Deontay Wilder in a press conference with Tyson Fury.

      He then claimed to have ‘saved the fight’ by stepping in to stop the two heavyweight boxers having a face off – which Abdo appeared to introduce.

      Commenting on his comments, Abdo wrote in Instagram: “With regards to the faceoff – I was doing what we the broadcaster believed was agreed upon. But I think that’s kind of unimportant now.

      “I have nothing but respect for Bob Arum and the empire he has created. I understand what he means to boxing and what this sport owes him. I think the language in his interview was entirely inappropriate. 

      “Of course it’s disappointing to be disrespected by someone I respect, but that’s life, not everyone will give you the courtesy you deserve.”

      HEAR ME OUT

      Eddie Hearn reckons Tyson Fury's trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder will go the distance.

      He told the BBC: "WBC champion Tyson Fury takes on Deontay Wilder this weekend in Las Vegas for their trilogy fight and I think Fury wins again – this time on points.

      "The Usyk-Joshua fight was always going to be closer than Wilder-Fury III."

      He continued: "Fury is a huge favourite but Wilder has the ability to end a fight at any time.

      "It's heavyweight boxing and that's why it's so exciting."

      TRUMP CONTINUED

      Giving his assessment of the second fight, Donald Trump said: "Then he fought him the second time and it was no contest.

      “He’s a good fighter and he’s got a very different kind of a body… well he had a great win. He was given no chance. And body type, that’s not type for a fighter you don’t think.

      “But he was so loose, he’s really a good fighter. And he’s a big guy, tall, 6ft 8ins, 6ft 9ins. He’s a very good fighter. Just different kind of a look, right?

      “His opponent looked so beautiful that night, but it didn’t work out. Fury’s a really good fighter.

      “The funny thing is Deontay was never even slightly wounded [in his previous fights], like 30-0 or something.

      “But he didn’t do well. It [the power] didn’t work against Fury.”

      DON TOP

      Former President of the United States Donald Trump praised Tyson Fury for his win over rival Deontay Wilder, saying the Brit 'shocked' people.

      The 75-year-old was commentating on the fight between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort last month.

      And the 75-year-old singled out 'good fighter' Fury for beating 'perfect physical specimen' Wilder.

      Trump said: "That was a fight where people were shocked, because you look at body type.

      “Deontay was like the most perfect physical specimen.

      “Fury went down, I thought he was out and all of a sudden he just jumped up."

      HEAR ME OUT

      Eddie Hearn has declared that Anthony Joshua and his team utilised the wrong game plan for his defeat against Oleksandr Usyk.

      He said: "I've seen many comments on how the tactics were wrong – and they were – but it's difficult to not appreciate the things Usyk did.

      "AJ was frustrated because he knows he can do so much better and boxed the wrong fight, but Usyk's performance was exceptional.

      "But, going back to the [Andy] Ruiz loss, that was different as it was just such a shock, nobody knew what to say.

      "Here, you could see AJ's mind working overtime on how he can beat Usyk. It was like the preparation for the rematch began then."

      'SPECIAL BOXER'

      Tyson Fury's head coach reckons the Gypsy King is the best heavyweight to ever set foot inside the ring.

      Should Fury call it a day without tasting defeat, he'll arguably go down as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.

      But coach Sugarhill Steward believes the Brit is already far better than those who came before him, including Lennox Lewis, Wladimir Klitschko, Mike Tyson and sporting icon Muhammad Ali.

      He told The Daily Mail: "I think about how Tyson has the characteristics of Lewis, Klitschko, Ali, Tyson and all the great heavyweights.

      "He has all their characteristics and the mental toughness.

      "He has everything they had and more. Tyson is a special boxer and he will have a special place in boxing history."

      AB-SOLUTELY STUNNED

      WILD PREDICTION

      Shane McGuigan has backed Tyson Fury to once again beat Deontay Wilder.

      He said: "He will do a few things differently and I don’t think it will go as early as last time, but it will be the same outcome.

      "He is just too long in the tooth to really change. He can’t punch in short, he has to punch over the top of people. He has got a guy who is 6ft 9in and he is 6ft 7in.

      ‘He has spent his whole career punching down on guys getting these knockouts.

      "But as soon as he has to change the trajectory on these shots, he loses the power. And he’s not really a good body puncher.

      "So it will be the same outcome in my opinion and I don’t think Malik Scott is going to make a blind bit of difference to Deontay Wilder."

    • Jake Lambourne

      GREAT SCOTT

      Trainer Shane McGuigan has hit out at Deontay Wilder's head coach Malik Scott as he claimed the heavyweight's former foe is a 'yes man'.

      He told the Metro: "‘You are supposed to hold authority as a trainer.

      "But you have got Malik Scott who quit after 90 seconds when he boxed Deontay Wilder.

      "How can you get a guy, who fell over as soon as you hit him with half a shot, to train you? He is a yes man.

      "He has been brought in to hold the pads and build the hype. He hasn’t been brought in to keep him in place."

    • Jake Lambourne

      ‘WILD OPINION’

      Anthony Joshua has tipped an ‘obsessed’ Deontay Wilder to settle the score with Tyson Fury this weekend.

      The American will bid to reclaim the WBC heavyweight title from the Gypsy King in a Las Vegas trilogy fight early on Sunday morning.

      When asked to predict the outcome of the fight, AJ said: “I’m not too bothered.

      “Look, because you’ve asked the question, let’s go with Wilder because he seems obsessed, like he really wants it.

      “He seems really focused on the task ahead, so, you know, a focused man is a dangerous man and he’s focused.

      “Wilder might get the decision. Actually, no, it has to be a knockout.”

    • Jake Lambourne

      FRIEND OR FOE

      Deontay Wilder needs to set aside friendships if he’s to have any chance of finally defeating Tyson Fury.

      That’s the view of legendary trainer Harold Knight, who says the appointment of Wilder’s friend Malik Scott as his head coach could spell trouble for the Bronze Bomber.

      And Knight – who coached Scott and has worked with Dillian Whyte and Lennox Lewis – warned Wilder he needs to stay businesslike ahead of Saturday’s showdown.

      Knight told MyBettingSites: “From experience and being around Malik for a long time, it’s a fine line between friendship and business.

      “If Malik can keep it business rather than friendship with Wilder, I believe they can do some good things.

      “This is business, this is high stakes boxing, this is world championship boxing, legacy is on the line.”

    • Jake Lambourne

      GO WILD

      Tyson Fury has been warned by Frank Warren not to allow the 'derailment of the Joshua gravy train' to affect him against Deontay Wilder.

      Writing for Boxing Scene, the Hall of Fame promoter said: "Tyson cannot afford to allow himself to become distracted by the derailment of the Joshua gravy train and take his eye off the job in hand against an extremely motivated Deontay Wilder.

      "I can’t see Wilder being able to reinvent himself enough to trouble Tyson, but there will be no complacency in our corner."

      He added: "As I admired his performance and believe him to be a great fighter, I don’t see Usyk being a match for Tyson either.

      "The attributes Usyk possesses are shared by Tyson with interest, along with a size and speed advantage.

      "A fight between them is a natural one to make as we will now consider an alternative way forward, all things being well on October 9."

    • Jake Lambourne

      TO BE FRANK

      Tyson Fury's UK-based promoter Tyson Fury has backed the Gypsy King to have a huge homecoming fight should he beat Deontay Wilder.

      The WBC champion could face Dillian Whyte next if he retains his heavyweight belt in his trilogy against the Bronze Bomber.

      Speaking to BBC, Warren said: "I think he'll be back here which will be a great homecoming.

      "If Tyson wins the fight we'll sit down. There's a few options there. Usyk would be a massive fight here. The Joshua fight is still a massive fight.

      "Dillian Whyte is a big fight, providing he beats Otto Wallin which isn't a forgone conclusion. There's some big fights for him."
