Tyson Fury: Hope Joshua Keeps Winning, I'll Make A lot From Him

By Declan Taylor, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY took a bashing at the bookies because of Brit rival Anthony Joshua - but he reckons it will earn him £5m in the long run.

WBA, IBO and WBO king Fury backed Joshua’s American opponent Charles Martin to cause a huge upset by winning their world title fight at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.

But the Londoner knocked out Martin in the second round to claim the IBF heavyweight title - and ruin Fury’s seven-fold accumulator.

The six other selections on the £1,000 bet slip had come in but he was forced to tear it up once Joshua did the business, a win which cost him a £37,000 return.

But Fury did not care less as the win set up a potential all-British unification clash which will secure his family’s future for generations to come.

He said: “I put a seven-fold accumulator on that night and they all won apart from stupid idiot Martin who didn’t even try.

“But the way I see it is that I lost 37 grand but I’ve gained £5m through Joshua winning, so happy days.

“I hope he fights another 20 times and knocks them all out - the more he can keep building is the more money I get when I fight him.”

Joshua’s victory took his record to 16-0 with all of them coming within the distance but Fury says the London 2012 Olympic gold medalist will come unstuck when he steps into “proper world class”.

He added: “He’s a good fighter and he’s going to earn me a lot of money but just hold your horses and don’t bet your house on him winning against any top names.

“He will always beat the likes of Malik Scott and these European fighters but when you step up into proper world class, when you make one mistake you’re out.

“We’ve seen him hit back once by old Dillian Whyte and he nearly went to bits. If you make one mistake against Dr Steelhammer, Wladimir Klitschko, you’re on your back.”

Fury’s rematch with Klitschko has been confirmed for July 9 at the Manchester Arena, when the ‘Gypsy King’ will defend his titles against the man he beat to win them.

But Fury insists his life has changed in just one way since claiming the belts in Germany last November.

He said: “I just get more racial abuse and discrimination. Success equals hatred and jealousy.

“I’m making money so I don’t really care. You’re either loved or hated, it all equals pound coins in the bank.”

Tyson Fury whinges on about being racially abused, but he brings those derogatory comments upom himself with his childish behaviour, idiotic comments and total lack of sportsmanlike behaviour. Conversely Anthony Joshua is a gentleman and true sportsman, and it's odds…

[I]I'll BET[/I] that Joshua is the natural talent and will finish what Steve Cunningham started.

This going to be an awesome fight if they both keep winning and improving, which they should do. AJ is 26 and Fury 27. Nowhere near peak for huge men like them.
