Joshua hits back at Tyson Fury claiming ‘he’s only had two good fights’ as war of words heats up for blockbuster clash – The Sun

ANTHONY JOSHUA has hit back at Tyson Fury and claims the Gypsy King has only ever had "two good fights".

Fury, who beat Deontay Wilder last month to claim the WBC title, claims Joshua's WBA, IBF & WBO belts are just his "leftovers".

The Gypsy King, 31, is set to take on Wilder in a third match and boxing fans are hoping to see him take on AJ after in what would be one of the biggest fights in boxing history.

Fury told ITV: “I’ve already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world when I beat Klitschko.

“So, as far as I’m concerned, Anthony Joshua’s only got my leftovers.

“I never lost those belts, I had to vacate them for mental health problems.

"They’re my belts.

“How can you claim to be a champion when you haven’t beat the champion?”

AJ responded, taking a dig at Fury's career as he prepares for his fight against Pulev which will take place at Tottenham Hotspur's stadium.

The 30-year-old told Land Rover: “The fight can happen when Tyson Fury gets past his third match with Deontay Wilder and when I get past my next match with Kubrat Pulev.

“If Fury wants that fight to happen, he’ll make it happen.

“We’re keen, we always like to put on big events and cater for the boxing community so that’s something that we’ll take really seriously.

“He’s had two good fights in his career in my opinion, against Klitschko and Wilder and he’s managed to win them both so he’s on a high right now.

“But he has to be careful what he wishes for because the young gunners are coming up and we’ll definitely take that Tyson Fury challenge with both hands.”
