Tyson Fury: Anthony Joshua is no good to me, gets knocked out either way

Fury admits he doesn’t know if he’ll fight Joshua but is certain he’ll KO him if he does.

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury continues to express confidence in his ability to make easy work of unified champion Anthony Joshua, not missing a moment to let it be known that he thinks Joshua is a hype job.

During this interview with Fight Hype, Fury admits that he’s not certain whether or not a fight against Joshua will come off but says if it does he’s not at all concerned with what Joshua’s bringing to the table.

“Either way, if that Joshua fight happens it doesn’t go the distance — he gets knocked out,” Fury said. “He is no good to me, none of these fighters are. He’s too slow, he’s too muscle-bound, he works on too much weight lifting and not enough speed. Too much power, no speed. If he holds a handful of stones and throws them at me, he may have a chance of landing something. But those big hooks, no chance.”

We’re now well into the month of May and still haven’t received an official announcement for the undisputed heavyweight title unification, despite many of the details for the prospective fight being reported, but I would like to stay hopeful that this all squared away sooner than later. But if you’re inclined to be more pessimistic, your beliefs aren’t unfounded.
