Tyson Fury has congratulated Deontay Wilder after his stunning knockout victory over Dominic Breazeale last night, while also sending a warning to Anthony Joshua in the process.
Fury and Wilder came toe-to-toe in an epic bout in December of last year, which ultimately finished in a draw. Many felt that the 'Gypsy King' was very hard done by in that one, and should have won the fight.
That draw is the only blemish on the record of either fighter, both of whom have emerged victorious in all of their other pro bouts.
After Wilder made short work of Breazeale last night, Fury took to Instagram to congratulate his former opponent, labelling him as the 'second baddest man on the planet behind me'. He also sent a warning to Anthony Joshua, who he claimed would be unable to deal with the American fighter's power.

I would just like to say well done to Deontay Wilder in knocking out Dominic Breazeale. I got that prediction quite correct.
Anyone who wants to go toe-to-toe with Deontay Wilder will have the same fate as Dominic Breazeale and the rest of his 40 other victims.
Anthony Joshua, you’ll get it as well - the same thing will happen to you mush. Dillian Whyte, you’ll get it as well.
The Bronze Bomber is the most fearsome, most destructive puncher in the heavyweight division. It’s just a pity that he had to lose to the Gypsy King.
Anyone who wants to stand in front of Deontay Wilder, he will knock them out.
Deontay Wilder is the second baddest man on the planet behind the Gypsy King AKA Tyson Fury , the number one heavyweight in the world.
Nobody can beat me, I can’t be touched.
A rematch between Wilder and Fury is likely to take place in 2020, while Joshua will also surely have to come up against this pair in the near future. Until their differences are settled in the ring, you can expect to see plenty more of this type of trash talk.
