Anthony Joshua Confident He Finishes Tyson Fury In Six Rounds

The potential fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has quickly become one of the most eagerly anticipated bouts in recent boxing memory. With the two Brits currently in possession of all the heavyweight titles, the prospect of unifying the belts would be the biggest heavyweight boxing match in decades.

One Sided Fight

On a recent episode of ‘A League of Their Own’ (transcribed by The Mac Life), Joshua stated that although he has admiration for Fury, a fight between them would be a one sided affair.

“I have a lot of respect for the man, he’s a good family man and a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head,” Joshua stated.

“First six rounds, I think, well I know I’m going to take him out then. I have had a shorter career, so I’m fresher. I’ve been in the deep end longer so I can handle the pressure and I believe I’m going to take him out. Fury drew the first and then rejigged his game plan and took Wilder out and schooled him really but I think I’m faster than Wilder anyway, call it what you want, I believe I’m better.”

“Let’s Make It Happen”

Joshua and Fury have been trading shots at one another for years, and recently, ‘The Gypsy King’ has been growing impatient to face his fellow Englishman.

“For the fans, you want the biggest fights possible and the biggest fight out there now is me and Joshua,” Fury said. “So let’s make it happen. Stop running away, stop making excuses, put your nuts in your handbag and let’s get to fight.”

A fight between the two has been on the cards for years, but after Joshua reclaimed the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles in his rematch with Andy Ruiz, and Fury won the WBC and The Ring titles in his rematch with Deontay Wilder, fans are now demanding that they face off inside the ring.

Luckily for us, the two have already agreed terms to fight in 2021. First however, Joshua must beat Kubrat Pulev in a mandatory defence, and Fury must overcome Wilder once again, after he exercised his rematch clause in his contract for their previous rematch. Both of these were scheduled for this summer but have been postponed as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Who do you think will win between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, when they finally step inside the ring together?
