The man has held the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring Magazine titles. Phew! We are discussing the World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury who still remains comfortably undefeated. When Kollisionskurs took place in November 2015, Fury established his supremacy in the world by defeating and ending the reign of Wladimir Klitschko. He went on to defeat Deontay Wilder by posting a stoppage win. Today, we have Anthony Joshua to challenge his kingdom.
The Unified Heavyweight Champion Anthony is eyeing the greatness that Fury enjoys today. The two champions are all set for the World Title clash as a potential deal finally came to the table. The two-fight bouts are agreed upon and fans are going gaga over the news.
Anthony Joshua shows middle-finger to Tyson Fury fans
AJ is spending some leisure time in Costa del Sol ahead of his match against Kubrat Pulev. The match was postponed due to coronavirus by the British Boxing Board of Control and this allows some free time to the champion. As he was marching towards a tent, he was mobbed by his supporters. He was casually allowing the fans to take selfies when some Tyson Fury fans provoked him.
They began the chant “There’s only one Tyson Fury” and got noticed by Anthony. To this, Joshua laughingly showed a huge middle-finger and continued with his march. The Gypsy King fans won’t give up and they continued the mocking.

A long road ahead for both the boxers
Before these two giants can finally exchange punches, they have their own timeline of big contractual matches. AJ must fight Kubrat and Oleksandr Usyk enroute his 2021 clashes with Tyson. On the other hand, Fury must again fight Deontay as per their contract demands. Fury will also be obliged to defend his WBC title against rival Dillian Whyte. AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn had earlier told Sky Sports, “We’re making great progress. There is still a lot to overcome. We are looking at venues and dates.”
The biggest hurdle of coming on equal financial terms has been crossed. The two may face each other in the summers of 2021 if things fall in place. Hearn would go on and say, “It’s the biggest fight ever in British boxing. It doesn’t get bigger, and there will never be a bigger fight in our generation.”
We couldn’t agree more! Meanwhile, you can also check out Anthony Joshua’s Twitter handle for the 18-second video of him hitting the hell out of a punching bag.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I intend to make popularise my quote when I say sports define me better than I define sports. See ya'all Champs!
