Tyson Fury Describes How An Amateur Anthony Joshua Gave Him A Beating In A Gym by ogbiwa: 7:00am On Dec 15, 2020
The sporting world longs for Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to throw punches at one another in the boxing ring. But they already have.

For while Joshua's win over Kubrat Pulev on Saturday intensified calls for him to face Fury in 2021, the pair actually tussled in 2010.

On his way back from the gym, Fury - who was 22 at the time and a professional - called Steve Bunce at BBC Radio London and explained what Joshua - who was 20 and chasing amateur honours - was like.

Now that the Joshua-Fury rivalry has reached a new level, BBC Sport boxing correspondent Mike Costello describes Fury's words from a decade earlier as "gold dust". Here they are.

"I just went down to Finchley Boxing Club and sparred the ABA champion Anthony Joshua. He's red hot him, very good.

"To be honest with you I thought 'I'll only take it easy because he's only an amateur and he probably won't spar me again if I go mad'.

"He rushed out at me, he threw a one-two and left hook and bash, he hit me with an uppercut right on the point of the chin.

"If I'd had a weak chin like David Price I'd have been knocked out for a month. He's very, very, very good and he's only young. Watch out for that name, Anthony Joshua, he is one prospect for the future.

"I'm a good prospect, I rate myself as one of the top heavyweights in the world and he came at me for three rounds and he gave me a beating. I am not going to deny it. He gave what for, hell for leather. I thought 'an amateur is killing me'.

"I slowed him down with a few good body shots. The kid is only 20. I'm a handful myself, so for him to put up a good performance like that against a top prospect in me, I think he's one for the future.

"But sparring isn't fighting and fighting with a head guard is not professional boxing."

its funny seeing fury playing soft mind games...we all know fury knows how to walk into heads of his opponets with just words n I think he may beat A.J with points...
fury is good in throwing n receiving punches n dts his key in defeating Wilder dt do depend on only throwing those his deadly punches bt cnt receive...
A.j weak receiving was exposed by that mexican guy dt defeated him b4 he restrategized n won with dt punching n running tactics...
fury is more clever and would be a hard nut to crack BT may d best man win....thats my opinion

cool



Anthony Joshua doesn't have a particular style of boxing, and that makes him unpredictable and dangerous

Abeggy, yoruba media will just be overhyping this weak Anthony Joshua, if he sure for am let him fight wilder or fury in a professional bout. Always selecting weak opponents that he's sure to beat... And Nigerians especially those slimy people are doing attachee by force, Anthony Joshua wey no send una.. He's simply using Africa to promote himself just like Beyonce and other black coloured foreigners. The end sars situation exposed their real stance.
Fvck AJ
Fvck all his supporters from this shithole

The difference btw AJ and Fury is that; AJ always imagine the worst from his opponent and prep for it, while Fury consider himself d best and want to maintain it. So both guys are titans in their own way.
