Popular boxer, Tyson Fury has come out to say that Anthony Joshua is not the toughest challenger for his WBC heavyweight title. He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, Joe Joyce is definitely a tougher challenger than the British-Nigerian because Joyce is a good ticker who is strong and fast in the ring.
Fury added that he still backs himself against the best boxers out there because he is one of a kind.
His words, “Tyson said that he’s the best one out there. That’s what Tyson’s opinion was. Can he go all the way? Yes he can. He’s got a good ticker, a big heart. He’s strong, he walks forwards, he is the ‘Juggernaut.’”
“Whoever he’s in there with, you know they will have a problem getting rid of him. He’s a tough guy. He can fight a bit. He can punch.”
