Tyson Fury has claimed during an extraordinary rant that he will quit in his corner if Anthony Joshua makes it further than three rounds with him in their mouthwatering all-British world heavyweight title unification showdown.
A date and location for their bout is edging ever closer, with latest reports claiming that Saudi Arabia will pay a staggering £108million to host the fight between two of Britain’s best ever boxers.
Fury was keen to keep the promotion going on his Instagram this week, once again calling out Joshua, while making a ridiculous claim in the process.
‘While I’m on a rant,’ he began, to his 4.1m followers,
‘I may as well call out one more person. A big, useless dosser. Not a real fighting man. A hype job. Bodybuild(er), crossfit, big, ugly s***house. That’s Anthony Joshua.
‘AJ, if you’re out there, let’s make this fight happen, you big dosser. You big s***house bum dosser. I’m gonna smash your face in, too, and there’s not one thing you can do about it. Prove me wrong, sucker. Prove me wrong. I’m number one, uno.
‘AJ, if you go past three rounds with me, I’ll quit in the corner, because that’s how confident I am [of] taking you cold out within the first two, three rounds. Out, out like a light switch.’
Joshua has only been knocked out once in his career, against Andy Ruiz Jr in the seventh round of their fight in 2019.
Fury confirmed earlier this week that the first of a two-fight contract with Joshua will take place in July, with the 24th and 31st both previously touted as options.
Although Saudi Arabia is the favourite, alternative options in England, the United States and Russia have all been discussed.
Currently Fury is at a training camp in Las Vegas, and he took some time out from his schedule to also call out another big name – UFC’s Francis Ngannou.
But guys, A.J is our brother and I’ve watched both fighters well enough and on paper I think Tyson Fury will beat him but anything can happen in sport.
