Tyson Fury breaks away from interview to troll Canelo Alvarez

Tyson Fury couldn’t miss an opportunity to troll Canelo Alvarez ahead of his fight against Billy Joe Saunders this weekend, even though it meant stopping an interview mid-way through.

Fury is close friends with Saunders, and has been alongside him in Texas in anticipation of his highly-anticipated showdown with Canelo.

“There’s only one Billy Joe Saunders”

It’s set to be the biggest fight of BJS’ career thus far, and while he may be a big underdog, Fury has repeatedly spoken about how he will be the one who finally manages to upset Alvarez.

After arriving at the hotel for the big fight this weekend, Fury took the opportunity to troll Alvarez and his entourage while they were walking through the lobby.

‘The Gypsy King’ shouted out “There’s only one Billy Joe Saunders!” as the Mexican and his team walked past, before going on to discuss the fight as a whole.

“I think Billy Joe’s greatest strength is that he’s a slick southpaw, a good boxer, he’s got a great jab and he’s got very underestimated power,” Fury explained to Seconds Out. “I think once he tags Canelo with the power, he’s going to think, ‘S***, I was not expecting that.’

“I think the jab in this fight is the key, though. For sure! That straight, piercing jab. Meet him head on in the middle of the ring with it – bang, bang, bang. 

“No retreat and no surrender, make him pay with that jab all in the face, in the lips, in the nose, up the earholes.”

Canelo may be the favourite, but it’d be silly to rule out someone like Billy Joe Saunders.
