Tyson Fury suspects that Anthony Joshua has a confidence issue and says that in two rounds he could knock his heavyweight rival out. This year’s unification fight between WBC champion Fury and Joshua, who owns the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts, is possibly on the cards.
Anthony Joshua beats Kubrat Pulev during last month’s fight (Andrew Couldridge/PA) “take Fury’s head off his shoulders,” Fury said on Sky Sports. After his victory over Kubrat Pulev last month, Joshua said he wanted to “I don’t think he’s as good as people make him out to be, or he doesn’t think he is himself,” but Fury doesn’t believe his rival is showing off. “He has a confidence problem. He’s had two shaky performances and boxing is about who is in form and who is not. Fury is optimistic that the fight, which would be one of the biggest in British boxing history, will happen as soon as possible. Whenever the world gets back to normal, whatever normal may be after this pandemic, then this fight will take place,” he added. For a long time, this war has been brewing. For a long time, they’ve been avoiding me, and now it actually has to happen. “Either they run from the fight and announce it publicly or they take the fight. Either way it’s a lose-lose situation for him. “Fury feels the fight needs to happen earlier rather than later and compares the fight to the one that actually happened in 2015 between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. “Boxing is one of those sports where you rarely see the best fight the best,” Fury said. The champion always chooses his opponents, and you never get the top two guys battling each other. “It’s always the champion picking his opponents, and you never get the top two guys fighting each other. ” I do not think Pacquiao was at his best when it actually happened. Perhaps four or five years ago, it should have occurred. “So let’s hope we get a one-on-one fight, not just with the two best heavyweights out there, but with two heavyweights who are in their prime and not past it.”
