Popular boxer, Anthony Joshua has blasted Tyson Fury for having only 2 good fights in his entire career.
Both boxers are set to battle it out in the ring at the ending of 2020 if Joshua can defeat Kubrat Pulev in June and if Fury defeats Deontay Wilder again in their 3rd fight this summer.
According to AJ, even if Fury can be proud of the 2 fights he has won thus far, he has to be careful with what he wishes for because young boxers are willing to take on the challenge at any time.
He added if Fury wants a fight against him, he is down because he loves being a part of the big events for his fans.
His words, “The fight can happen when Tyson Fury gets past his third match with Deontay Wilder and the fight can happen when I get past my next match with Kubrat Pulev.”
“If Fury wants that fight to happen, he’ll make it happen. We’re keen, we always like to put on big events and cater for the boxing community, so that’s something that we’ll take really seriously.”
“He’s had two good fights in his career in my opinion, against Klitschko and Wilder and he’s managed to win them both so he’s on a high right now. ‘But he has to be careful what he wishes for because the young gunners are coming up and we’ll definitely take that Tyson Fury challenge with both hands.”

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is an English 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.
Joshua represented England at the 2011 AIBA World Boxing Championships as an amateur in the super-heavyweight division, winning a silver medal; he also represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics, winning gold. In 2014, a year after turning professional, he was named Prospect of the Year by The Ring magazine. In 2017, his victorious fight against Wladimir Klitschko was named Fight of the Year by The Ring and the Boxing Writers Association of America. Joshua is the second British boxer, after James DeGale, to win both a gold medal at the Olympics and a world title by a major professional sanctioning body, as well as the first British heavyweight to do so.
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.
