Fury: Anthony Joshua Must Eliminate All Arse-Kissers From Team

Tyson Fury believes his domestic rival, Anthony Joshua, has too many "yes men" on his team - and he needs to distance himself from those types of people if he intends to rebuild his career.

Back on June 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Joshua was stunned in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history - when he was stopped in the seventh round by huge Andy Ruiz.

Joshua, who dropped Ruiz in the third round, was dropped twice in the same round, and was then put down two more times in the seventh - forcing the referee to eventually wave off the fight.

When Fury returned from a layoff of over two years, he made numerous changes to his team - including the decision to part ways with uncle/trainer Peter Fury. Fury would replace his uncle with Ben Davison.

Fury would advise Joshua to do the same, to change his team around by kicking away anyone and everyone who doesn't have his best interests in mind.

“He needs to get shot of every arse-kisser around him," Fury told the Telegraph.

“Because in this game, there’s no space for ‘yes’ men. There’s no pats on the back, bagmen.

“Like his dad said, he needs to get a bit smarter and listen to people who care. Not to people who are around him for a free ride. I think the invincibility factor is gone. People know now if they clip him, he’s gone.”

Joshua has already exercised his option for an immediate rematch with Ruiz. The second fight is being targeted for the fall, with a UK location being the most likely destination for the bout.

[QUOTE=P4Pdunny;19824994]How much of Fury's interviews do you read or video interviews do you watch? In some instances pre-fight he is being asked questions and answering them but in many cases he voluntarily opts to speak about Wilder or AJ. He…

[QUOTE=deathofaclown;19824979]Of course, it’s not a noteworthy fight but that makes no sense in context of what you originally said. You made out like Fury was just talking about the others when in fact he’s just answering questions put to him.…

[QUOTE=P4Pdunny;19824974]Something you fail to comprehend.. if this fight was a noteworthy fight, journalists wouldn't have to field such questions about everything but this fight. Most of his interviews, they're talking about most things (mainly AJ, Wilder) outside of this fight.…
