Tyson Fury: It would be so easy to beat Anthony Joshua

Fury pulled off a huge upset when he outpointed Klitschko in Dusseldorf nearly 18 months ago to win a unanimous decision and become heavyweight champion and said he is not impressed by Joshua.

Fury last fought in his win against Klitschko in September 2015, while Joshua's last fight is a victory against Klitschko on April 29.

The British heavyweight put boxing on the front and back pages last weekend as he stopped Klitschko in a modern-day classic at Wembley Stadium.

"An astonishing round in this heavyweight fight of the ages", said Smith, just in case you'd missed it a minute ago, and with Deontay now alongside him and Carl Froch, Wilder explained what was going on: "This is heavyweight boxing, ladies and gentlemen".

As a heavyweight, his profile has been enormous for years but after triumphing over future Hall of Famer Klitschko in one of the greatest heavyweight title fights in modern history, 'AJ' has gone stratospheric. "Come on, that's what they want to see".

"Joshua is still just a baby with 19 fights, it took me 28 fights to become world champion".

As part of his Instagram story, Joshua also showed off his wide selection of caps as well as him working in the gym. Klitschko is 41 and no-one has ever done that to him. And while the former "Baddest Man on the Planet" is a keen follower of the UFC - noting bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt as one of his favourite fighters to watch - he believes the balance of power is tipping back in boxing's favour.


Beyond the similar records, Tyson and Joshua also share a similar route into the sport with both starting boxing as a means to escape their hard upbringings.

"The fans want the Fury fight and I do, too".

Fourteen years older than his opponent, he showed why he is one of boxing's most respected and enduring fighters but will go away with the refrain of "what if" ringing in his ears.

'Like I did with Wladimir, give him a boxing lesson, played with him.

I was talking to him and I told him, "If you let me get through this round, I'm going fuck you up".

Tyson Fury has kicked off the war of words with Anthony Joshua.

In Germany, meanwhile, more than 10 million people tuned in to watch the fight for free. So far, three firm favorites have come up - Klitschko, World Boxing Council (WBC) champion Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev. "I've never seen an entrance quite like his before with the flaming "A" and "J", he adds.
