Tyson Fury was reeling from the news that opponent Dereck Chisora was withdrawing from their fight on Saturday with a hand injury.
So he took to Twitter to call out a possible next opponent. The man he was trying to speak to was Deontay Wilder, an unbeaten American fighter who goes by the handle @BronzeBomber.
Instead, he tagged @LucyBronze, who is a women's footballer for Liverpool and England.
In what was a particularly angry rant—and given he has already seen David Haye bail out on short notice of two proposed fights, his frustration was somewhat understandable—it was a moment of light relief.
Fury later deleted a string of tweets and apologised:
Ok I pressed the wrong person@LucyBronze.— Tyson Luke Fury (@Tyson_Fury) July 21, 2014
But if you're in Greater Manchester and fancy picking a fight with the wrong person, an offer remains online:
If any1 feels like a fight I'm in Bolton town centre& I feel like a rumble. See what the BBOC make of this.— Tyson Luke Fury (@Tyson_Fury) July 21, 2014
