A funny episode happened during White & Jordan show on the
TalkSport with the participation of the WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) – he ran into one of the leading local experts Simon Jordan.
Fury did not like Jordan’s words that British heavyweight Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) is allegedly much cooler than American puncher Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs).
“I’m sorry,” Fury interrupted the host. – Who did it there? Simon, was that you? Dude, be nice.”
After everyone laughed, Jordan tried to defend his position: “Come on, Tyson! Give Joshua credit. Although he is inferior to Wilder in terms of firepower, he is otherwise stronger. Yes, you have to fight a stronger opponent, because Joshua is stronger than Wilder, even though he dropped you on your back.
Fury’s response: “No way! Wilder knocks out Joshua in 2 rounds. So how can Anthony be a stronger boxer then? I don’t believe that anyone else in this world, except maybe you, Simon, believes that Joshua can beat Wilder. Deontay’s fist will go through Anthony. And he will do it with one blow. Moreover, hitting Joshua is not the most difficult task. ”
Fury had previously fought Wilder three times before being stripped of the WBC title. The big guys tied the first fight, in the second there was a one-sided beating performed by the Briton, and the third fight turned out to be the brightest – with mutual falls and a hard late knockout from Tyson.
Now the champion is negotiating a fight with Joshua. The promoter spoke about the date, the revenge clause and the distribution of the fee. In the meantime, Joshua showed his “office”.
