Tyson Fury accidentally calls out England footballer Lucy Bronze for a fight

The devil makes work for idle thumbs, as Tyson Luke Fury found out last night…

The British boxer of Irish descent, Tyson Fury, was set to fight Dereck Chisora in Manchester on the July 26 (this coming Saturday), but unfortunately for both fighters, Chisora had to pull out of the fight at the last minute due to injury.

Naturally, Fury was looking forward to the upcoming fight against Chisora and so when Fury learnt of the injury he decided not to waste any time, by calling out another opponent.

Fury was attempting to call out the undefeated American heavyweight by the name of Deontay Wilder, who uses the Twitter handle @BronzeBomber. However, instead of tweeting to @BronzeBomber, Fury tweeted to Lucy Bronze (@LucyBronze), better known for her skills on the football pitch, rather than her skills in the boxing ring.

Thankfully, Lucy (pictured below) saw the funny side of Fury’s incorrect tweet and in fairness to Fury, he was quick to own up to his mistake.
