Tyson Fury downplays Anthony Joshua’s Achievements
For years, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder have been ruling the heavyweight division. However, after The Gypsy King destroyed Wilder in the rematch, there is one fight that makes the most sense, Fury vs Joshua.
And this fight has the potential to be one of the greatest heavyweight bouts in history. There is some serious bad blood between these two British heavyweight elites.
Fury does not believe that Anthony Joshua is as great as the fans think he is. In fact, he has called Joshua is a worse fighter than the former WBC champion Deontay Wilder. And here, Tyson Fury insults Anthony Joshua by calling him an amateur who achieved great things just because of smart management by his team. Fury told to Eddie Hearn:
“You’ve done an absolutely fantastic job, congratulations. You(Eddie Hearn) took an amateur boxer and made him into a superstar and finished the article. It’s just a shame he has to be in the same era as the Gypsy King.”
It’s needless to say that this fight is going to a barn burner. Unfortunately, it might not take place in the UK. As per reports Fury vs Joshua could take place in Saudi Arabia.
