Tyson Fury taunts Anthony Joshua and insists ‘how can he be the champion when he hasn’t beaten THE champion?’ – The Sun03/04/2020
ANTHONY JOSHUA cannot call himself heavyweight champion of the world until he has beaten Tyson Fury, the Gyspy King has claimed.
A ferocious eight-round beating of Deontay Wilder last month earned Fury the WBC title belt and maintained his unbeaten professional career.
Fans are now clamouring for the 31-year-old to face off with Joshua, who possesses the remaining championship honours.
And Fury has already begun the trash talk ahead of a potential bout by dismissing AJ's claim to be the world's greatest heavyweight.
He told This Morning: "I've already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world when I beat Klitschko, I had all of the belts.
"So as far as I'm concerned, Anthony Joshua has only got my leftovers because I never lost those belts. I had to vacate them for mental health problems. They're my belts.
"How can you claim to be the champion when you haven't beaten the champion?"
Before Fury can fight Joshua however, he is obliged to face Wilder once more to complete a trilogy of fights with the American.
I've got two more fights left, then we're going to really think about what we do from there."
A final rematch clause has been activated for a July contest in Las Vegas just a few weeks after AJ takes on Kubrat Pulev.
Once those clashes are out of the way, the British pair are expected to plan their own duel for the year's end.
But Fury has now admitted he wants to hang up his gloves once he has disposed of Wilder and Joshua.
He noted: "I've got two more fights left, then we're going to really think about what we do from there.
On the subject, wife Paris added: "I don't think he could ever just leave boxing because it's such a big part of his life.
"If he did open a gym, did stay involved, I think that would be great. I think that's a good thing to do.
"We've got other business we're involved in, but there's no real pleasure. It's not boxing, is it?"
