Tyson Fury Confident, He KO’s Anthony Joshua In One Or Two Rounds
January 5, 2021
WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury has questioned Anthony Joshua on his readiness to make their all British unification fight happen and has branded his recent comments as “Sticks and Stones”.
Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBO, WBA, IBO, IBF Heavyweight title had verbally agreed with the WBC Champ, an all belt unification fight will be next for the two after Joshua takes care of his mandatories. However, after everything there hasn’t been much progress on that lane.
Joshua didn’t call out Tyson Fury after his victory over Kubrat Pulev back in Dec. 12th, choosing not to comment on the topic after the fight but has become more outspoken recently, threatening to “knock Tyson Fury’s Head Of His Shoulders”. Fury has since replied those comments in an interview with FOX Miami.
“It’s a nice quote,” Fury said. “It doesn’t mean anything. It’s sticks and stones. People say a lot of stuff and they don’t back it up, so we’ll see. I’ve never seen him take anybody’s head off anybody’s shoulders in all of his fights. Probably a lie. Another lie.”
“We’ll see if he’s got the guts to try and do it when I’m in the ring in front of him. I don’t believe he has.”
The unification fight between Joshua and Fury is presently the most anticipated fight in boxing right now and will the winner will walk home the first undisputed Heavyweight Champion since Lennox Lewis. Fury believes Joshua has been avoiding him but no longer has a choice but to make the fight happen.
“This fight has been brewing for a long time,” Fury said. “They have been avoiding me for a long time, and now it’s finally got to happen. They either run away from the fight and announce it publicly, or take the fight. Either way it’s a lose-lose situation for him.
“I don’t think he’s as good as people crack him up to be, or he doesn’t believe he is, in his own self. He’s got a confidence issue. He’s coming off two shaky performances.
Fury predicted the outcome of their yet to finalised meeting, citing the fact that Joshua has had below par performances and sees himself taking out his fellow countryman in two rounds.
“Boxing is all about who is in form and who isn’t. On his last two fights he’s not in form, on mine I am. Momentum is with me, and I just believe I take him out early, very early. Maybe even one round, two rounds.”
Tyson Fury has been out of the ring since his Feb. 22nd victory over Deontay Wilder, a fight he was contractually obligated to grant the former champion a third fight. However, Bob Arum maintains that the contractual obligation expired back in October and that Fury is free to move on to another fight.
