Tyson Takes Jibe At Joshua: I Will Take Him Out In Two Rounds

Tyson Fury is tipped to face Anthony Joshua in an all-British challenge fight as he believes it would be a rapid fight, stating on Monday that it might be so early - as in 'two rounds'.

AllNews understands that 'AJ' had said after his last bout that he is "up for anything", including the Fury fight, as the WBC Champ is not afraid to take on anybody.

Loud cheers were heard in Wembley after he asked "Who wants to see Anthony Joshua box Tyson Fury in 2021?", and Tyson is already fanning the flames of the fight with his recent comment about the match.

Fury said on Monday he can knock out fellow British world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua inside two rounds, due to his recent form.

WBC belt holder Fury said following Joshua's past two bouts - a unanimous points decision over Andy Ruiz Junior in December 2019 and a ninth-round stoppage of Kubrat Pulev last month - the fight would be a no contest.

"I don't believe he's (Joshua) as good as people crack him up to be, or he doesn't believe he is in his own self," Fury said enthusiastically.

Fury added: "This fight has been brewing for a long time. They have been avoiding me for a long time and now it's finally got to happen. They either run away from the fight and announce it publicly or take the fight. Either way, it's a lose-lose situation for him.

"It's a nice quote. It doesn't mean anything. It's sticks and stones. People say a lot of stuff and they don't back it up, so we'll see. I've never seen him take anybody's head off anybody's shoulders in all of his 22 fights. Probably a lie. Another lie".

He concluded: "On his last two fights he's not in form, on mine I am. Momentum is with me and I just believe I take him out early, very early. Maybe even one round, two rounds."

Fury has questioned why AJ has shown restraint in calling his name in the aftermath of the Pulev victory, a criticism that has been rebutted by the unified champion.

Joshua rebutted: "I basically said, 'If Tyson Fury is the man with the belts, Tyson Fury is the man I want.' That basically says, 'I'll fight anyone who has that belt, there's no problem with the person'. I just want to go for the undisputed championship. That's what I was trying to say that night.

"He took it how he wanted to take it. I've never turned away from a fight. I've never announced a fight and not showed up. I've fought six to seven champions, in my short career. Tyson Fury is another one of them.

The rumble in the jungle was not created by chance, this match is trying to beat the rumble to both its popularity and anticipation as the two boxers go at it with words and punches are due to follow.
