Fury Continues Claim Joshua is Scared
While Anthony Joshua prepares for next week’s heavyweight championship unification match against Joseph Parker, former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury preps a return to the ring for the first time since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
As reported by Boxing Scene, Fury has aimed fire and fury at Joshua, claiming Joshua is too scared to take a fight with him.
Fury regained his boxing license earlier this year following a long battle with depression and substance abuse issues. A return date and opponent have yet to be announced, and Fury has disputed a report that stated he has signed with Frank Warren and would return in June.
Fury also commented on a recent report that included Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, stating that if Joshua can defeat Parker and then defeat Deontay Wilder and unify all the heavyweight titles, retirement may be an option for the current WBA/IBF/IBO champion.
“I’ve signed nothing with nobody as of yet. I’m still a free agent [at the moment],” Fury said. “I just saw reports that Eddie Hearn saying Joshua will retire before he fights me and if he does, I told y’all he was a sh*thouse and he’s afraid of the Gypsy King. Look, I got myself back in shape…and now he wants to retire all of a sudden.”
Fury promised that if he ever gets the chance to face Joshua in the ring, he would easily handle him.
Typical, typical, typical moves, stay active, get a couple of fights in because I’m going to take you to school, play with you. It’s going to be unbelievable, an easy fight. [I’ll] jab his head right off, use his head like a springboard.
