Fury: Joshua Took My Belts Out Of The Garbage
Tyson Fury wants a fight with Anthony Joshua, but winning back the IBF, IBO, WBA, and WBO titles won’t mean all that much.
“Listen, I’m already number one,” Fury said. “So I don’t need to beat Deontay Wilder to prove that, because I’m not any old champion. So I can’t move up any more spaces. But if he beats me, he can become number one. But if I beat him, I stay where I am. The belts that AJ has are only belts he picked out of the garbage tin, because they were all given to him by me – every single one of them. So them belts are of no interest to me. I already have all of them belts in me front room, all in the cabinet, displayed.”
Joshua would earn those titles following an upset win over Wladimir Klitschko, as Fury vacated them due to his issues with mental health and drug addiction.
“The only one I’m missing is the green one, which I’m gonna get on December the 1st,” Fury said.
“So yeah, the belts are unimportant. I’m only interested in one more belt. That’s the green one. That’s the one I’m taking home. And does it matter who’s number two or number three? No. The only position I’m interested in is first. And that’s it.”
