Tyson Fury beat Deontay Wilder in seven rounds to claim the WBC world heavyweight title, but his victory in Las Vegas was laced with a secret message perhaps to Anthony Joshua. This appears after pictures emerged of the British wearing a gum shield with the word ‘Nigeria’ written across the front, in the colours of the Nigerian flag
Tyson Fury appeared to send Anthony Joshua a hidden message, calling out his fellow Brit with his gum shield. The new WBC world heavyweight champion was wearing a gum shield in the colours of the Nigerian flag during his stoppage win against Deontay Wilder on Sunday, Epress reports.
Anthony Joshua is proud of his Nigerian heritage, and is frequently seen donning both the British flag, and the Nigerian flag.
Joshua’s parents were both born in Nigeria, and they moved to the UK when they were 25.
The boxer was also born in Nigeria, and presently on holiday in his former homeland.
Fury’s decision to wear the gum shield, which also had the word ‘Nigeria’ written across the front of it, may be a subtle way of calling out Joshua
