We’ll settle in the ring, Joshua replies Fury

3 min read

British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua, has spread anticipation for a future bout with Tyson Fury by firing shots in a budding war of words with his big rival.

Joshua has promised to use the Gypsy King’s own words against him when they eventually clash in the ring.

In a recent interview, the 33-year-old heavyweight revealed he hangs on to every taunt and jibe made by Fury, ‘meditating’ on the remarks and storing them in his memory as fuel for their future battle.

“This is one of my rivals, this is someone I want to compete with one day”, Joshua growled in a video on YouTube when asked what he felt about being called a sausage by Fury.

“Everything he says I store it in my memory and when the fight happens I want to use it as fuel”, he added.

The towering 6ft 6in champ, who once held the IBF, WBA, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles, is back amongst the boxing elite after a terrible defeat to Andy Ruiz. Following a better 12-round rematch against Ruiz, Joshua has since bounced back in style, despite failing twice against the latest heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.

He has recorded three impressive wins since then, including a victory against fellow African and former MMA star Francis Ngannou from Cameroon. Ahead of a much-anticipated fight against Fury, Joshua’s response to Fury’s insults serves as a warning to the Gypsy King.

Known for his calm and composed demeanour, Joshua’s uncharacteristically feisty comments have set pulses racing among boxing fans eager to see who will have the guts to trade verbal blows with the sporting superstar.
