|Anthony Joshua Breaks Silence On Preparation For His Showdown With Tyson Fury by damilola4162(m): 2:49pm On May 04|
Anthony Joshua has opened up on his preparation for his huge showdown with Tyson Fury, insisting that he's prepared for 'torture' during training for the clash, Newspremise reports.
The British boxers are set to face off twice this year in a huge fight, although no final dates have been sealed for the bout but both men are in training.
The fight will unify the heavyweight division and the winner will go down as the undisputed king of his generation.
Speaking ahead of the fight, Joshua told the skipper of his hometown club, Watford's Troy Deeney, on the striker's podcast: 'Am I excited? I ain't excited, it is what it is,'
'I'm getting ready to walk through a brick wall and nothing is getting in my way. I'm ready to go through whatever pain, torture, adversity I have to go through in order to win, that's why i'm really looking forward to it.
'I know I'm the man of this division and I will be for a long time. I came through this game quick and the way I had to learn was through mistakes, on the public stage as well.
'I came into this game not to take part but to take over, I feel I'm on a different wavelength and frequency.
'I do it with a smile on my face but I'm dedicated to these things. Recapping over Covid I thought, man, I've put a lot into this and now I need to back myself.'
This comes after Fury called Joshua: 'A big, useless dosser. Not a real fighting man. A hype job. Bodybuild(er), crossfit, big, ugly s***house. That's Anthony Joshua.'
The younger fighter then brushed off Fury's talk: 'It's just psychological warfare.
'I've learnt a lot with that. The man will talk about drinking pints and he's not interested but yet he wants to look chiseled, he's training the hardest he's ever trained, he's the skinniest he's ever been.
'AJ has a good body and he trains so he wants to be a body builder, but Tyson Fury would do the exact same thing if he could. I am everything he wants to be.
'He wants to have a six-pack, that's why he's training as hard as he's training right now. Why he looks so chiseled, why he's in America.
'I promise you I'm honoured, I'm humbled, I know it's going to be tough but I truly believe I am tough enough to go through it. I don't need to talk about Tyson Fury and I don't need to belittle the man, he can do what he wants.'

Fury's overconfidence is an insult to AJ...
Imagine fury saying if AJ survived round 3, he will quit the match.
He will be disgraced for this saying.

its weird seeing aj going philosophical about this fight...it seems he us scared already....
since its a double fight, I think it would be a disgrace if he lose both of them..
