Tyson Fury Thinks Anthony Joshua Lacks Heart, Expects Early Finish

Tyson Fury is of the belief that Anthony Joshua’s heart leaves a lot to be desired.

Fury and Joshua are on a collision course. The two are expected to throw down at some point in 2021. Fury holds the WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Titles, while Joshua is the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO Champion.

While the two have agreed in principle to two fights, their bout still isn’t official. Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn has insisted that an announcement is on the horizon, while Fury has grown tired of waiting.

If the bout does become official, Fury believes it’ll be a short night. He told ESPN that he expects Joshua to fold in short order (h/t BoxingScene.com).

“It’s pretty simple – [I just have to] hit him in the face a few times and he’ll fall over. He doesn’t have the biggest heart, he hasn’t got the most resilience and he’s not the hardest to hit. When I land it’s gonna be over quite quickly.”

Fury went on to say that he hopes the bout with Joshua ultimately comes to fruition because he isn’t interested in sitting on the sidelines.

“I hope [Joshua is next]. I’m hoping and praying it’s going to be AJ but I’m not going to wait around forever. I need to be active, I need to keep busy, and it’s up to Top Rank to make that happen.”
