Fury: "Joshua didn't fight a single heavyweight in their 'prime"

Although Tyson Fury is expecting a match against Deontay Wilder in three weeks, which will also end the trilogy of his mutual matches, "Gypsy King" has decided to dedicate part of his time to Anthony Joshua. After the second match between Fury and Wilder, we were close to pairing Joshua and Fury, but Wilder decided to activate a clause that allows him the third match as AJ fought Kubrat Pulev.

If Tyson Fury defeats Deontay Wilder again in the match that will take place on October 9, and if Joshua defeats Oleksandr Usyk next weekend, there is no doubt that Fury and Joshua will compete after that. Of course, they both face difficult tasks because they have extremely dangerous opponents.

However, it is clear that Fury, after the dominant victory against Wilder in the last match, is already slowly looking towards Joshua and wants to fight AJ to add the four-belt which Joshua held(WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO) to his WBC belt.

"Gypsy King" was a guest on "The Overlap" show and was hosted by former football player Gary Neville. In a conversation with the former right-back of Manchester United, Fury expressed an interesting opinion about the victories of Anthony Joshua.

'' Anthony Joshua didn't fight a single heavyweight in their 'prime' (at the peak). They were all good once, earlier during the early 2000s or late 2000s. However, they are no longer good boxers in 2020, their time was ten years ago.


Prime fights

Fury revealed to Neville that he hopes to fight Joshua in 2022, and "Gypsy King" also stated that rarely the best boxers fight while they are both in the "prime" '' I think the best boxers end up fighting each other, but it won't happen when everyone wants to.

Such matches happen when one boxer is in decline and the other is at his peak." "We very rarely watch two fighters in the 'prime' fight each other because one of them is always afraid of losing, '' Fury added.

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury do not currently act as boxers who are in decline and could be said to be in the "prime" If they defeat their next opponents, chances are good that we will have a chance to watch the two best heavyweights in the world fight each other while both are in full force.

They are both great fighters and they could give us a real spectacle, of course, if there is a fight between them. There has been a "fire" between the two fighters for a long time and most were left disappointed after their fight was canceled.

This time they will have a chance to secure the fight by defeating their opponents. It will not be easy for them, but their fight should be a huge motivation for them
