Tyson Fury Dismisses Anthony Joshua’s Invitation To Join His Management Team
Tyson Fury has dismissed Anthony Joshua’s invitation to join 258 Management.
Fury and Joshua appear to be on a collision course. Both men have agreed in principle to a showdown. Fury holds the WBC Heavyweight gold, while Joshua is the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Champion.
Joshua recently told Daily Mail that he believes Fury should join his management team and Matchroom Boxing to elevate his career.
“I do think [Fury] should come over to Matchroom and 258 Management and let us handle his career. He’s a superstar, he’s a superstar in the making with the right management. He could go all the way.”
Tyson was quick to respond to Joshua’s invitation and he didn’t take too kindly to the gesture.

“Anthony Joshua, has it ever dawned on you I’m not interested in being a superstar, or famous, I’m a fighting man & only interested in smashing your face in, u keep the stardom, I’ll stay real, you big dosser I’m coming for u superstar, tick tock tick tock.”
Joshua is set to defend his gold on December 12. He’ll collide with Kubrat Pulev inside the SSE Arena, Wembley in London, England. Fans will be allowed in attendance at a reduced capacity of 1,000.
Fury was hoping to compete in December. That plan wasn’t feasible so “The Gypsy King” decided to hold off until early 2021. His next opponent has not been decided.
Fury last competed back in February. He scored a seventh-round TKO victory over Deontay Wilder to capture the WBC Heavyweight Championship.
