WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has come out to say that no one should compare him with Tyson Fury.
Joshua recently said that he does not want to be compared to Tyson because he achieved so much in a shorter time frame compared to him.
According to him, he is way ahead of where he should be in boxing and his career is presently working at such a quick pace.
He added that he doesn’t find Fury intimidating at all and he does not even see him as a threat in the sport.
His words, “But realistically, in boxing terms, I’m way ahead of where I should be. I’m working at such a quick pace. I shouldn’t even be in a position where I’m mentioned in Tyson Fury’s era.
“He’s five or six years ahead of me in terms of turning professional. In fact, when he was turning pro, I was just putting on my gloves for the first time.”
“Tyson needs educating. All of us athletes do.”
“We often didn’t go far in school, so a lot of our comments and actions aren’t great. But let’s talk about him as a boxer.
“I don’t find him intimidating and I haven’t seen him do anything in the ring where I think, ‘this guy is going to be a massive threat’.
“He’s talented and he’s awkward, and that’s often enough to get you quite far in life.”
