Frank Warren: Tyson Fury Would Jab Anthony Joshua Silly

By Frank Warren

Congratulations to Anthony Joshua for the feat of adding the WBO world heavyweight title belt, previously owned by Joseph Parker, to the others already in his collection. There is only one belt to go now and it would be some achievement to unite the division.

Sometimes I, along with many others, find his fights a bit of a hard listen. Nothing to do with big Josh, more the interminable cheerleading we are all forced to endure from Sky’s merry band of one-eyed commentators and pundits.

Unfortunately this is something we now have to live with because they are all making a lot of money from it and are not prepared to be objective.

It might well make some people doubt what they are actually watching, but I know what I watched. I watched a fight between Joshua and Parker that was pretty average, to be honest, as were most of the televised fights.

What I have also noticed is Sky’s pundits tend to say one thing in front of the Sky cameras and then completely change their opinions when they talk to other publications such as iFL TV – most notably Carl Froch.

The spectacle wasn’t helped in any way by the referee, who I thought was atrocious, an amateur who spoiled the fight. Although I am not saying it would have made any difference to the result because I don’t think it would have done.

I said last week in my Daily Star column that the fight would probably go to points.

Joshua has been in some exciting fights before, such as the one with Dillian Whyte and another with Wladimir Klitschko. This one certainly wasn’t exciting.

I like reading the reports from the other country involved due to the bias we tend to get over here. The New Zealand media just told it how it was and were truthful about it, calling it a very average fight and describing the threat of Parker exactly as it is, which is limited.

A big gentleman watching on from the North West wouldn’t have been losing any sleep over the prospect of taking on either man. Even with two years out I don’t think he would be troubled by that.

It is more and more noticeable with all the banging on about Deontay Wilder that nobody is talking about Tyson Fury. I don’t understand why because he is the one who never lost and whose titles they are all fighting for.

For me, he is head and shoulders above the rest and a far superior operator, even though he has still got it all to prove again.

Could you see Joshua controlling Tyson like he did Parker? I can’t see it. He would jab him silly.

In fairness to him, Joshua did mention Tyson in his post-fight interview and it is becoming more and more obvious that AJ is about the only sane one there!

[QUOTE]Fury has this weird style of boxing[/QUOTE] He's mastered fighting without fighting. Like a fat, drug-ridden Gypsy Bruce Lee.

Fury has this weird style of boxing which will give AJ alot of troubles... I believe AJ will figure a way out to break Fury and I don't see it ending without a KO

[QUOTE=tonysoprano;18647071]"I'll bet anyone 5 grand Joseph Parker will knock out Anthony Joshua" - Tyson Fury[/QUOTE] He was on the right lines because Parker exposed Lil J so bad.
