Tyson Fury’s immediate reaction to Anthony Joshua’s second-round knockout of Francis Ngannou has gone viral following Friday night’s fight.

Fury sat alongside his wife Paris and promoter Frank Warren ringside as AJ entered the ring to take on Fury’s former foe Ngannou.

While Ngannou looked impressive against Fury, Joshua made light work of the former UFC champion, knocking him down three times in two rounds.

The third knockdown ended Ngannou, who was unable to get up as AJ claimed the win.

Fury, who was sitting ringside, couldn’t help but applaud Joshua after his right hook sent Ngannou to the ground without reaction.

Fans have taken to social media to discuss Fury’s immediate reaction to the knockout, with some suggesting he was shocked by the blow.

“Tyson rage shocked after that knockout punch from AJ,” one user wrote. ‘He was stunned and had to applaud Antony Joshua.’

After the brutal knockout, Fury gave credit to Joshua when he said: ‘I had a similar performance against Ngannou. AJ did an absolutely fantastic job lighting him up with his right hand.”

However, the Gypsy King predicts that he will still defeat his compatriot if they want to fight.

“If he fights me after I beat Usyk twice, it will be a different match,” he concluded.

While Fury showed his class by applauding the knockout, Joshua wasted no time in calling him out.

“If you win, it’s on to the next one, right? I’m not even talking about the win. On to the next one, go ahead,” Joshua said after the fight.

“If I was the old AJ, it would have just been strength versus strength. It would have taken years off my career.

“Anger, Usky, if they want me, they can knock on my door.”

The winner of Fury’s fight with Oleksandr Usyk is expected to face Joshua in the future.
