Joshua spoke about Fury

Former two-time world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (28-3, 25 KOs) harshly criticized his compatriot Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs). The Watford native admitted that he was happy about the Gypsy King's defeat by Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs).

Joshua made such frank statements in an interview with The Independent. The 34-year-old Briton emphasized that Fury simply disgraces the sport with his attitude and statements about other boxers. Anthony also expressed confidence that he would fight Tyson.

"I'm glad Fury didn't become the absolute champion, I just think he's an idiot. I've always said that this idiot is disrespectful. The way he treated Usyk with no respect, calling him a little rabbit and a middleweight, is not good for the sport. Usyk is a good fighter, there's no denying that. I don't care if he wins or loses anymore, I just want to fight him. Fury has been dodging a lot of top-level people. He needs to get on with it, come and fight me and stop wasting my time," Joshua said.

On September 21, the Briton will fight his compatriot Daniel Dubois (21-2, 20 KOs). At stake will be the International Boxing Federation (IBF) belt, which Usyk refused to give up. It became known that the IBF left no choice for our champion. This situation outraged the head of the Absolute Fighting Championship Dana White.
