Popular boxer, Tyson Fury has come out to say that Anthony Joshua avoided questions about him when discussing a possible fight between the pair scheduled for 2021.

Fury recently revealed this while speaking at the Jonathan Ross show, and boxing fans have been reacting.

According to him, it was funny to see how Joshua refused to mention his name as his next opponent, despite a deal for them to fight already in place.

He added that if the tables were turned, he would’ve immediately called AJ out because he is sure of his boxing abilities.

His words, “He was asked the question, “Do you want to fight Tyson Fury?” very plain and simple, and he never answered the question.

‘It was a simple yes or no answer wasn’t it? Then they said, “Do you think you’re the best heavyweight in the world? and he went [holds hands up].

‘Didn’t answer the question. Ask me, do you want to fight Anthony Joshua? Yes I do.”

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.
