Joshua Gets Fury’s “Frustration” To Prove Himself
“For me, Anthony Joshua needs to prove himself on the world stage,” Tyson Fury said last week on ESPN, as Anthony Joshua prepares to step into the spotlight of Madison Square Garden on June 1st,
“He’s so happy fighting in England, he fought Klitschko who I destroyed mentally,” Fury continued. “He had a war with a beaten fighter. He has to prove he’s willing to step up to the plate and fight the best.”
“Tyson Fury has his opinion and I respect it,” Joshua replied earlier this week. “It’s why we’re chasing these fights. We’ve put in a massive offer to fight Tyson Fury on April 13 (at Wembley Stadium in London, England).”
For Joshua, who makes his United States debut on Saturday night, he believes Fury is frustrated to prove himself after a three year layoff and not being able to walk away with the WBC world title in December against Deontay Wilder.
“Look, I fought Wladimir Klitschko, he’s fought him as well. He’s fought Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder in his 10-year career. I understand his frustration, he wants to prove himself as well.”
With all three fighters open after Joshua fights Andy Ruiz Jr on June 1st, and Fury fights Tom Schwarz on June 15th, rumors, negotiations, and even more rumors will begin. Let us know who you think will be the next to face either fighter on Facebook or Twitter.
