'If It's Boxing, It's Vital'

Tyson Fury Talks AJ

Although Tyson Fury has been inactive as far as boxing is concerned since beating Wladimir Klitschko, the self-proclaimed Gypsy King isn’t afraid to talk-the-talk still as he prepares for a comeback.

Fury, if he can overcome the problems his lifestyle have landed him with, hopes to fight on the under-card of a promotion at the Copper Box Arena, in London, in July.

However, it seems that Fury’s sole purpose for making a ring return is a mega-fight with the reigning IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.

Fury, as has always been the case, doesn’t mince his words when talking and reckons that taking on AJ will be the easiest fight-night of his career, remarking to the media,

'Joshua is a big man with a puncher's chance and has no footwork, no speed or stamina.

'He is what you call a boxer's dream. I've had 18 months out and ballooned up to 26 stone. I could come back with no comeback fights and still box rings around that body builder.'


Not short of confidence is our Tyson!

Continuing, in his verbal assassination of AJ, Fury continues,

'I always said Wladimir would be my easiest fight. Now I change the goal posts, AJ will be my easiest fight.

'I've never been more confident or serious when I say something, I will play with Joshua like a cat with a ball of wool - hands behind my back, making a right mug of him.

'We are in the business of sweet science. Sweet science does not consist of a body beautiful, iron pumping big fella. It's feinting, jabbing, moving, gliding around the ring, that's the sweet science.'


Some might agree but others who sat through that fight in Dusseldorf might call it far from entertaining.

Continuing, Tyson has another shot at AJ, further adding,

'Joshua was supposed to walk right through him as he was old and useless supposedly, but it didn't work like that did it? Klitschko's been out of the ring 18 months and had a 50-50 fight with a so-called killer. I will rip the fraud from the division.

'You get two types of people in boxing, the outlaw and the Mr Nice. I am the outlaw so people love to hate me. That's my personality, love me or hate me you still have to watch me, it works. I've been through depression, life and death positions, and turned it all around.'


Will it ever happen AJ and Tyson in the same ring?

Is there a promoter out there willing to take the risk that the problems Fury has had won’t make a return scuppering a show?

And, if they were to ever meet, who would you put your money on to win?
