Fury changed his mind about fighting Chisora and set his sights on a fight with Thor
“At the moment, the situation is such that there is no need to wait for the third fight with Derek Chisora. Chisora wants too much money. He is a piece of shit,” said the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs), who this week announced his return from sports retirement and hinted at a trilogy with his compatriot.
Fury and his father John flew to Iceland today, where they wanted to have a face-to-face meeting with Hafthor Bjornsson, the best strongman in the world in his time.
Giant (height 205 cm, weight more than 150 kg) "Thor" Bjornsson in March of this year unanimously won on points from another famous strongman Eddie Hall. It is reported that the fight between Fury and Bjornsson could take place in November at the stadium in London.
Let's add that "Gypsy King" and his father did not find "Thor" in his training hall today. Therefore, we went to the nearest pub, where they called themselves "Varangians ruling the city."
“Tyson is mocking you, don’t take his words seriously, for God’s sake. Everyone is waiting for the outcome of the August fight between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk II (for IBF, WBA and WBO belts - ed.). Then we'll see if we can put together an all-belt fight," Fury's co-promoter Bob Arum said this week.
Tyson Fury and John Fury have flown to Iceland on a whim to try and provoke a face-to-face confrontation with Hafthor Bjornsson today, only to find he's not there so they've gone to the pub instead…— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) August 11, 2022
