Tyson Fury was on The Jonathan Ross Show discussing his life and the much-awaited clash between the British heavyweight giants.

Fury said, ”He was asked the question: ‘Do you want to fight Tyson Fury?’ Very plain and simple, and he never answered the question. It was a simple yes or no answer, wasn’t it?

The ‘Gypsy King’ looks hungrier than ever for this fight. He recorded one of the best comebacks by drawing his first fight with Deontay Wilder, followed by a brutal T/KO win in his rematch.

He defied all the odds by beating the biggest names in the sport. However, he believes there’s one more contender left in front of him. And although Fury has been talking a lot of trash, he is not one to underestimate his opponent in Anthony Joshua.

He’s a great fighter, Olympic gold medallist, two-time heavyweight champion just like me, he’s won all the best. He’s a great, great athlete,” he concluded.

Can Tyson Fury be Joshua’s toughest test to date?

Tyson Fury never fails to amaze the boxing universe. He has already terrified one of the most accomplished boxers of this decade, Deontay Wilder, in both their contests. As he won against Wilder, there was no better matchup to him than Anthony Joshua.

Joshua and Fury have achieved it all in the squared circle over the course of their careers; all that remains to be seen is who is the better pugilist of the two. With all that’s at stake here, this fight will certainly be bigger than Fury’s battles’ against the ‘Bronze Bomber’.

Fury, without a doubt, will walk into this fight with an edge over his compatriot. In terms of skill sets, power, fight IQ, and trash talks, Fury ranges slightly ahead of ‘AJ’.

With all that’s said and done, the victor of this fight is anyone’s best guess considering all that AJ and Fury bring to the table. T/KO or a 12-round rally? How will this spine-chilling contest end?
