Fury: “Joshua Is Afraid Of His Own Shadow”
Tyson Fury is preparing for his second return fight, as the “Gypsy King” looks to square off with Francesco Pianeta in Belfast.
And while Fury is looking forward to a better challenge from Pianeta than he had from Sefer Seferi earlier this year, his focus is on a potential November showdown with Deontay Wilder.
“Whether I’m ready or not, I’m doing this fight with Wilder for British boxing, to take the shame away from it because we’ve got one idiot who is chiseled out of stone who is afraid of his own shadow,” Fury said of Anthony Joshua said when speaking to The Telegraph.
“He wouldn’t take the fight with Wilder and has made British boxing a laughing stock. If he’s a fighting man, he should have taken the fight. He didn’t so I have to step in. I’m not afraid to fight any man in any backyard.”
“I’m going to knock Pianeta out. Then I’m going to go to Las Vegas and I’ll spank Wilder all over it. He’s a dosser who’s never fought anybody.”
