Tyson Fury’s Trainer: Anthony Joshua Is Going To Be A Tough Fight
Tyson Fury’s trainer isn’t downplaying the skills of Anthony Joshua.
Joshua and Fury have signed on for two fights. Both men hold the major heavyweight championships. Joshua is the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titleholder, while Fury lays claim to the WBC and The Ring gold.
During an interview with MyBettingSites, Fury’s trainer SugarHill Steward said that Joshua won’t be easy for “The Gypsy King.”
“He showed a lot of good things in that fight [Pulev], I was very impressed. His patience, he was relentless, he was pushing the issue. It was impressive. Anthony Joshua is a dangerous fight period. From what I saw in that fight he really put his stuff together. I thought he took the risks. He didn’t fight anything like he fought against Ruiz the second time. That’s the one he didn’t take the risks in. He fought with a different style and now I believe he’s comfortable with it.
“He did take risks in that Pulev fight, he didn’t shy away and just wait – he was right there. He was aggressive and I thought it was a great fight and great performance by Anthony Joshua. Anthony Joshua is one of the top fighters in the division, one of the top fighters in the world, with his skills and experience. He’s one of those guys who keeps practicing. It’s going to be a tough fight. He’s got a ton of experience, he’s got the height, good balance, good power, timing – there’s so much that Anthony Joshua has – that’s a very dangerous package.”
Fury’s last outing took place back in February 2020. He defeated Deontay Wilder via seventh-round TKO to capture his current gold. Joshua is coming off a ninth-round knockout over Kubrat Pulev to successfully retain his gold.
