“We’re expecting me to be a week better with my skills. I’m gonna be a week stronger with my mentality… I’m gonna be a week closer to the day when I get to kick Tyson Fury’s a**. That’s what you gotta expect. And every week that counts down, I’m looking forward to that fight,” responded ‘AJ’.

In his last fight, ‘AJ’ battered the Bulgarian boxer Kubrat Pulev to add a sensational win to his resume. It was the only fight he took up in 2020, but right from the first bell, he made his intentions clear on winning this bout.

He walked in with a plan and executed it in the finest way possible. That said, Pulev couldn’t handle the Brit’s prowess, and he ended up getting finished in round 9 of the fight.

With that win, the only fight Joshua bothered about next was an undisputed title clash against ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury.

This is the biggest and perhaps the most important fight for ‘AJ’ and could eclipse his second duel against ‘The Destroyer’ Andy Ruiz Jr. Moreover, with Joshua’s above statement, it’s clear that he’s in the most ideal mindset for this undisputed heavyweight war.
