Tyson Fury has a simplistic game plan ahead of his fight with Anthony Joshua.
The WBC titleholder is hoping to become the undisputed heavyweight king when he fights his compatriot later this year.
Fury – Joshua fight talks appear to be progressing nicely. Both men have agreed on purse splits and a host site.
According to Eddie Hearn, it’s now just a case of a few contracts being signed before the biggest fight in British boxing history becomes official.
Ahead of the bout ‘The Gypsy King’ revealed his very simple plan for beating Joshua.
“It’s pretty simple – [I just have to] hit him in the face a few times and he’ll fall over,” Fury told ESPN. “He doesn’t have the biggest heart, he hasn’t got the most resilience and he’s not the hardest to hit. When I land it’s gonna be over quite quickly.” (Transcribed by BoxingScene)
Fury hasn’t competed since recapturing heavyweight gold by beating Deontay Wilder in February 2020. The Englishman was expected to complete his trilogy of fights with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ but the American’s repeated allegations of cheating against Fury seems to have brought that chapter of his career to a close – at least for now.
Joshua was last seen in the ring when he fought Kubrat Pulev in December. ‘AJ’ dictated the fight against his IBF mandatory challenger from the opening bell. The 31-year-old found the finish in round nine to defend his straps and pave the way for a mega-money match-up with Fury.
