TYSON FURY RESPONDS TO REPORTER’S COMMENT THAT ANTHONY JOSHUA SAID KLITSCHKO WOULD KO HIM

“It’s just Jealousy, let him back Klitschko and we’ll see. Our day will come! Men meet before mountains!

Read this! Joshua: “I think Klitschko will win, by stoppage potentially!”

Men meet before mountains? Fury quoting proverbs!

Meaning

A mountain never meets a mountain, but a man meets a man.

Although mountains do meet, this proverb is expressive.

There are some things or events in life that are believed to be impossible, like an encounter between mountains, but there is always a chance for people to meet.

The proverb can be interpreted in a positive way, showing how easy it is for people to socialise and meet more often, but it can also be interpreted in a negative note saying that one can always find a possibility for revenge. “We’ll meet again!!!”

Here are some early mentions of this proverb:

1530: Palsgrave, L’esclarcissement de la langue francoyse, 635: “Hylles do never mete, but acquaintance do the often.”

1754: Berthelson,  Eng.-Danish Dictionary, 29: “Friends may meet, but mountains never greet.”

Origin:
Afghan proverb widely used in Afghanistan and it sounds like this: KOH ba KOH namerasa amma AADAM ba AADAM merasa. It means mountains can’t help each other but humans can.  (Abdulrab Tarshi Dari, Pashto, Uzbek and Turkish Linguist).

Fury challenges Klitschko for the heavyweight championship of the world on Saturday night in Germany.

TYSON FURY – ‘I WONT GET A POINTS DECISION IN GERMANY, I’LL HAVE TO KNOCK HIM OUT’

TYSON FURY – ‘I KNOW HE’LL FIGHT. BECAUSE IF HE PULLED OUT HE’D BE CALLED CHICKEN-KLITSCHKO FOREVER’
