Joshua Not Worried About Fury's Ring-walk Threat: He's a Clown!

By Harry Howes, courtesy of The Daily Star 

ANTHONY JOSHUA has hit out at Tyson Fury in response to claims he could join him in the ring this weekend.

The British boxer takes on Joseph Parker in a heavyweight unification fight in Cardiff on Saturday night.

The 28-year-old already holds the IBO, WBA ‘super’ and IBF belts and has put them on the line in a bid to take Parker’s WBO title.


Both fighters are unbeaten in their careers and a win for Joshua would likely set up a bout with American Deontay Wilder, who holds the WBC belt.

Fury has been back in the gym and is hoping to fight Joshua before the end of the year.

And there have been suggestions that the self-proclaimed Gypsy King could join Parker in his ring walk this weekend in a bid to wind up Joshua.

But the Olympic gold medallist has blasted the rumours, insisting his focus is solely on knocking Parker out.

“I’ll punch him out the ring as well,” he told Sky Sports.

“Tyson’s a clown, I’m not worried about no one else.”

While suggestions that Fury could gatecrash the fight are unconfirmed, Parker refused to rule out an appearance from the heavyweight.

He said: “We’re good friends so you never know what might happen come fight night.”

Saturday's fight takes place at the Principality Stadium.

Also scheduled for this card, heavyweights Alexander Povetkin and Davis Price will collide, former world champion Anthony Crolla will faces Edson Ramirez. Crolla is back in action following his win over three-weight king Ricky Burns in Manchester in October.

Ryan Burnett defends his WBA World Bantamweight crown against Yonfrez Parejo, Josh Kelly also goes for his first belt against former IBF World champion Carlos Molina for the WBA International Welterweight title and Welshman Joe Cordina fights for his first pro title with the WBA International Lightweight belt on the line against Andy Townend.
