Tyson Fury suffered his first loss as a professional when Oleksandr Usyk defeated him in their undisputed bout for the world heavyweight title, and fans mocked the Brit for saying the fight was “easy.”

Tyson Fury believes he has won the fight after losing to Oleksandr Usyk by split decision

Tyson Fury was mocked by fans using his real name after he described his fight against Oleksandr Usyk as “easy” despite a loss.

The Briton failed in his bid to become the first undisputed heavyweight world champion in 25 years when he lost to Usyk last month. Fury controlled the first half of the fight but Usyk turned the tables and nearly knocked Fury out in the ninth round before winning on points.

Fury insisted he did not lose the fight after rewatching it and is confident he will beat Usyk in the rematch, which was scheduled for October but will now take place on December 21. Fans have now used Fury's real first name, Luke, to criticise the “delusional” assessment of his loss.

“Luke you weren't having fun in there. You got beat up and jumped all over the ring. At the end of the fight you were yelling 'Happy New Year'. That middleweight kicked your ass you're embarrassed,” one comment read. “Fury is so delusional and he's surrounded by yes men and gaslighters. I guess that's how he's going to manipulate the fans,” wrote a second user.

“Middleweights 40 pounds lighter, seven inches shorter in reach and six inches shorter in height are still better than you. Calling him an immature boxer, 'Happy New Year' to everyone,” a third user added. This is what happens when you live the life he lives. The fight was a reflection of that. Having talent, fooling around, losing focus, falling down, no consistency,” a final user commented.

Fury played down talk of retirement after he was spotted going down in a battered condition during a night out in Morecambe earlier this month. The former heavyweight champion compared Usyk to a novice, despite the Ukrainian beating him and pinpointing exactly what he did wrong in the fight.

“People said he was hard to hit, I was finishing him off with four-punch combinations and laughing at him. My problem was that I was probably having too much fun. It was too easy. It was like being in the ring with a local amateur boxer. I was enjoying it too much, fooling around and I paid the ultimate price for it in the ninth round,” he added.
