Fury: If I Were AJ “I’d Never Show My Face Again”

Tyson Fury feels Anthony Joshua “disgraced” himself on Saturday night, when Andy Ruiz Jr. stopped the now-former unified heavyweight champion inside Madison Square Garden.

“He’s done very well in his life and career,” said Fury of Joshua. “He’s definitely done well but everybody bumps into that one person who can knock them out any time and unfortunately for AJ it was a little fat fella from California who chinned him. And he’ll never live it down.

“Can you imagine? You’re built like an Adonis, you’re six foot six [inches], you’re ripped, carved in stone, and a little fat guy who has eaten every Snickers and Mars bar in the whole of California comes in there and bladders you all over? What a disgrace.

“If that was me, I’d never show my face in public ever again.”

While Joshua is confident he’d pull off a victory later this year and Deontay Wilder feels like Joshua doesn’t want the rematch, Fury believes Joshua will fight Ruiz again with a similar result. “I think even in a rematch he [Joshua] will lose again. Styles make fights and I think Andy Ruiz’s style is all wrong for him. Andy will always beat AJ, in my opinion.”

“Before Andy, it was always me who was the chubby kid. Oh, look at his body, he doesn’t have a ripped body, he’s not six-packed up, he obviously doesn’t train. And it’s usually always me who gets the criticism for being fat, so I’m happy there’s another fat guy on the scene!”
