Deontay Wilder is a tougher opponent compared to Anthony Joshua, a big cuddly baby – Tyson Fury


Tyson Fury has described Deontay Wilder as his biggest and toughest opponent whilst his countryman and next opponent Anthony Joshua is a ” big cuddly baby “.

Fury eased past Deontay Wilder in a bloody match which saw him finish off the bronzebomber in the 7th round to be crowned the winner in Las Vegas, last February.

The Gypsy King Tyson Fury is set to face off with his countryman and two-time unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, should he win a potential trilogy fight against Wilder.

Fury in a recent interview with ESPN played down the abilities of Anthony Joshua, making reference to his fight with Mecican boxer, Andy Ruiz. According to him, AJ is not a threat to.

He said;

“One-hundred percent, Joshua’s not dangerous, at all. He’s like a big cuddly baby,”

“Why would I be a believer when he got knocked spark out by Andy Ruiz? A last-minute replacement opponent … who turned up 300 pounds or whatever it is, he didn’t train, and Anthony Joshua couldn’t do any good with him in the rematch.

“He doesn’t have anything, he couldn’t hold a candle to ‘The Gypsy King’.

“There’s only one heavyweight out there, there’s only one undefeated world champion. They’ve all fallen by the wayside, the fellow that hasn’t gotten beat, has knocked them out!

I’m the only one! Me – ‘The Gypsy King,’ unbeatable, the untouchable, unbreakable champion.”
