Tyson Fury Calls out Women's Footballer by Mistake After Dereck Chisora Injury

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.

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.
