Anthony Joshua ready to make history against Tyson Fury
When it comes to heavyweight boxing in this present day, there’s only two fighters that matter. Unified heavyweight champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1, 21KOs) and WBC champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 23KOs).
In an interview with British GQ, Joshua discussed Fury and the history a win over his country rival would bring.
“I’m here to make history. I’m fired up. Fury’s just another opponent at the end of the day. I’m looking at Fury like he’s just another fighter. In terms of spectacle, trash talking, two juggernauts coming together, I can’t wait.”
WHAT A WIN MEANS FOR BOTH MEN!
A win by either man would make them the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox “The Lion” Lewis (41-2-1, 32KOs) did it back in 1999.
FIRST THINGS FIRST!
However, both men must take care of business in their upcoming fights against dangerous opponents. Joshua will lock horns with IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev (28-2, 14KOs). Fury will, for the third time, face the hard-hitting Alabama slugger Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs), who lost his WBC title in their February 22 rematch.
If they both come out of those fights victors, it would set the stage for a highly anticipated undisputed clash between the two best heavyweights in the world today. With Joshua brimming with confidence, this only makes this bout even more anticipated.
