Tyson Fury says he wanted to be the most outspoken heavyweight champion, and while he’s no longer the king of the big men after over two years out of the ring, he’s still talking — a lot.

Most recently, Fury told BoxNation that a fight with Anthony Joshua would be his easiest challenge yet:

“I’m gonna say this, a bold quote; Joshua will be my easiest fight. Even easier than Wladimir Klitschko. Even after two and a half years out the ring.”

“I look at them all and I see all good men, all good world champions, all young and ambitious and unbeaten, and it’s a very good time to be a Heavyweight. Deep down, they know the Gypsy King will reign supreme again.”

Fury, 29, hasn’t fought since his November 2015 victory over Klitschko, and only recently regained his license from the British Boxing Board of Control after a doping scandal.

He also says he’s lost four stone (56 pounds) in about eight weeks, and that he’s training twice a day as he looks to return to the ring.

As for Joshua, he’s set to face Joseph Parker in a heavyweight title unification fight on March 31, with over 70,000 tickets already sold.
