Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua are in line for a blockbuster clash in the coming months. Despite former boxers claiming that ‘The Gypsy King’ will be a bridge too far for AJ, the lineal champion remains confident of adding yet another belt to his collection. The 30-year-old shared his thoughts on the heavily anticipated bout.
Anthony Joshua Comments on Tyson Fury Match
In a chat with British GQ ‘AJ’ seemingly assured fans that he would stay grounded in how he prepared for the fight.
He said, “I’m here to make history. I’m fired up. Fury’s just another opponent at the end of the day. I’m looking at Fury like he’s just another fighter. In terms of spectacle, trash talking, two juggernauts coming together, I can’t wait.”

However, for such a match to become reality both pugilists must retain their titles in their upcoming mandatory title defenses.
‘The Gypsy King’ faces Deontay Wilder in a rematch that perplexed many at first. This is because Fury decimated ‘The Bronze Bomber’ for the entirety of the 7 rounds before the challenger’s corner threw in the towel.
‘The Bronze Bomber’ claimed injury and a heavy entrance costume for disrupting his rhythm. He has refused to accept ‘The Gypsy King’ as champion. Fans cannot dismiss him as he remains the only fighter to deny the WBC champion a win. This was when he held ‘The Gypsy King’ to a draw in 2018.
Meanwhile, ‘AJ’ will look to add to his 21-KO tally when he defends his belt against Kubrat Pulev. His comments of ‘The Gypsy King’ being just another fighter mean he is beginning to take every opponent seriously to avoid a repeat of his loss against Andy Ruiz Jr.
Boxing fans will keep their fingers crossed that both Brits retain their titles thereby paving the way for an absolute cracker. Who do you see emerging as the first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis?
