Joshua Hits Back at Fury

As his date with destiny fast approaches, the whole nation wants to see Anthony Joshua crowned the IBF heavyweight champion of the world this Saturday night.

Joshua is one of those people that has the persona that everyone likes, well apart from one fellow fighter who currently holds other versions of the heavyweight belts, one Tyson Fury.

Ahead of Joshua’s fight with Charles Martin, at the O2 Arena, this Saturday night, Tyson Fury has labelled Joshua as nothing more than a bodybuilder.

Those words have seen Joshua issue some words of retaliation, with the potential BF heavyweight champion quoted in the morning press as having responded,

“This is the same guy who was singing my praises when I sparred him as a complete novice.

“Who is this guy to be talking like that?

“He’s just another fighter. He needs to be a bit more modest and a bit more humble.

“If I was to give Fury some advice, it would be that he should start reading or start educating himself, because one minute it’s one thing and then the next minute it’s another with him.

“I only listen what my coaches and the people supporting me are saying. If I spent my time listening to Fury I’d be going round in a circle.”


And on the forthcoming fight with Charles Martin, another unbeaten fighter, Joshua gave an insight into how he intends approaching the biggest night of his life, further adding,

“I’m going to outsmart Martin and punish him for any mistakes. Then I think Fury is only 10-12 months away.

“Once he’s handled his re-match with Klitschko, it’s a fight we can start working towards.”


Now that is a date to put in your diary!
