“Ponte and naivete”. The expert called the reasons for the collapse of the fight Fury-Joshua


Former heavyweight champion Johnny Nelson believes that WBC heavyweight belt holder Tyson Fury missed the megafight against Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) allegedly because of his “arrogance” and “inexperience” when he rushed his fellow countryman and his team to sign contract for December 3rd. Sky Sports expert said

As a result, Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) was left with almost nothing – the third fight against Derek Chisora ​​(33-12, 23 KOs) cannot be considered an equivalent replacement.

“It’s all about show-offs. Both agreed to fight,” Johnny reminded. – Then Tyson began to set deadlines. You can’t do that. You can’t just say, “Sign this and don’t read the details. Don’t look at the fine print. Just sign. And if you don’t sign today, it’s all over.”

“Who would sign like that? So I think it’s all about inexperience, naivety and arrogance. For everyone to be at the feet of Tyson Fury. As far as I know they [команда Джошуа] They didn’t refuse anything, they signed everything and said: “Yes, we will do it, but we need to check here and here.” But no, damn it. “No, I’m not fighting with you!” Well, that’s it,” Nelson throws up his hands.

(Tyson, by the way, considers another reason and found a flaw in Joshua. And his co-promoter Bob Arum said that the Fury-Joshua fight killed Hearn.)

At the same time, Johnny believes that it is in Joshua’s favor that the fight did not take place, because risking a third defeat in a row, he believes, is unwise from a business point of view.

“If I was on AJ’s team, I would say, ‘Don’t take this fight. I’m sure the people on his team don’t want him to take the fight,” Nelson said.

Joshua is not a warrior, not a killer, but he will defeat Fury. This is the unexpected opinion of the American puncher.
