Fury to Joshua: Boxers no longer afraid of you
Brtish heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury believes Anthony Joshua does not scare any boxer again as he has lost his fear factor.
Joshua defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in a unanimous decision win to regain his heavyweight world titles last December, six months after losing them to the Mexican.
But after being knocked out in their first meeting – and boxing on the back foot in the rematch – Fury believes Joshua no longer sends chills through the division.
“Everyone has to do whatever they have to do to win a fight,” he said.
“I don’t think any of the fighters out there in the world are worried about AJ anymore, his bubble has well and truly been burst.
“No one is bothered about AJ anymore and they won’t be about Wilder either, when I burst his bubble too.”
Fury is preparing for his rematch with Deontay Wilder on Saturday week.
The pair fought to a controversial draw 14 months ago when Fury twice hauled himself off the canvas.
And this time Fury insists he will stop the WBC champion.
“Deontay knows he was rocked three or four times in the last fight and I didn’t have the gas to finish him. This time I can turn that screwdriver until he is gone
“Wilder is going to sleep in two rounds. I keep having the same dream about round two. I am playing poker and I get dealt the number two card. He is getting knocked out in round two, 100 per cent.
“What is going to happen is that I am going to get what I won last time. I am going to get that green belt, I am also going to get the Ring Magazine, and I am also going to keep my lineal championship, too.
“And if he wants to rematch again, no problem. You beat a man once, you beat him again, you beat him three times in a row.” Punch
