However, WBC champion Tyson Fury isn’t intimidated by his countryman’s showing. Instead, ‘The Gypsy King’ vowed to knockout Joshua within three rounds when they meet each other in 2021.

The matchup has been touted for years and will clearly be the biggest British showdown in boxing heavyweight history.

Responding to Joshua’s call-out, Fury has accepted the challenge. He wants to lock horns against ‘AJ’ in 2021. So, we can expect another heavyweight thriller in the coming days.

But Fury’s scratchy comments while accepting the fight may not sit well with Anthony Joshua.

‘The Gypsy King’ turned to social media and posted a video. He didn’t congratulate Joshua for the win and went straight with his message.

Fury said, “There you go everyone, Anthony Joshua, just sh*t himself live on television. He got asked did he want the fight, and he went around the bushes and put his a**e in the hedge. I want the fight. I want the fight next. I’ll knock him out inside three rounds. He’s a big bum dosser, I can’t wait to knock him out.”

Not only that, but he also dragged Deontay Wilder into the mix. As per Fury, he will take out Joshua just like he overcame Wilder in the rematch. It was quite a huge statement to make.

Earlier, Fury desired to finalize the Wilder trilogy in case Joshua failed to beat Pulev. But it isn’t happening since ‘AJ’ has defended his titles.

Returning to the KO-game, Joshua now has a record of 24-1 with 22 knockouts under his belt. Meanwhile, Fury is unbeaten and has the only heavyweight strap which is missing from Joshua’s shoulders.
