Unified champion Anthony Joshua appears optimistic about quelling Tyson Fury’s undefeated run. However, it won’t be a simple task. Boasting 30 wins alongside the WBC strap, Fury is one of the best in the business.

However, Anthony Joshua is a boxer of similar status, and he can rightfully vanquish ‘The Gypsy King’.

That said, Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury would never buy the claim. Despite Joshua’s recent achievements, the ‘TNT’ hesitated to bill him over Tyson Fury, predicting ‘AJ’ to go down in an in-ring collision.

Still fresh from his own win via KO on February 27, Tommy Fury connected with IFL TV to talk about the much-awaited Joshua vs Fury fight. He pointed how Fury had surpassed Deontay Wilder with a three-year-long hiatus to validate his claims.

“I think it’s just all talk and you know it’s hard to take him seriously because in the day, even Wilder was going back and forth for years, you know, I am gonna fight you, Oh yeah, I’ll fight you. This and that, Tyson gets up after three years out. Yeah, no problem I will fight you,” said Tommy Fury.

He continued, “No one’s waiting on Tyson, everyone’s waiting on Joshua because Tyson is out there. Everything what Tyson says is true, he is there, he is ready to fight.”
