He recently had his say in a new interview with the press, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, the fact of the matter is that Anthony Joshua has never fought one opponent during the prime of their career, and he has only been battling has-beens.
Fury added that he doesn’t think that the best boxers do fight each other eventually, but it happens when everyone calls for it.
His words, “I do think that the best boxers do fight each other eventually, but it’s not gonna happen when everyone calls for it.”
“It only happens when, say, one boxer’s on the slide and one’s in his prime. Then you get them wanting to fight each other.”
“But you very rarely get two prime fighters fight each other. Because one of them is always a bit wary that they’re gonna lose.”
“Anthony Joshua’s fought not one heavyweight in his prime.”
“They’re all former good men, back in the early 2000s, late 2000s, but not in 2020-odd. They were good men 10 years ago.”

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.
Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.
His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.
Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
