Each of the heavyweights at the top of the tree seem to be all taking it in turn to comment (more than usual for some and some out of character) on their fellow combatants. Some have been recently humbled, some plain vengeful (promoters as well).
With Joshua vs Pulev seemingly headed for December (date to be confirmed) and Fury vs Wilder III headed for December 19th, the plan is for Joshua vs Fury in a huge heavyweight showdown in 2021 (if both are successful in their respective fights). It would be one of the biggest heavyweight fights ever (certainly in the UK).
Anthony Joshua briefly spoke on Fury and their proposed fight whilst on Sky One’s A League of Their Own.
“I have a lot of respect for the man, he’s a good family man and a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head.
“First six rounds, I think, well I know I’m going to take him out then,” Joshua added.
“I have had a shorter career, so I’m fresher. I’ve been in the deep end longer so I can handle the pressure and I believe I’m going to take him out. Fury drew the first and then rejigged his game plan and took Wilder out and schooled him really but I think I’m faster than Wilder anyway, call it what you want, I believe I’m better.”
