Tyson Fury: Joshua Doing a Good Job of Keeping My Belts Warm

By Marc Williams, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY has thanked Anthony Joshua for ‘polishing his belts’ and vowed to ‘eat up’ anyone who wants to challenge him. 

Fury has not fought since his stunning points win over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 when he won three major belts.

The Gypsy King was forced to give up those titles due to a number of negative reasons but he has now returned to full training and is nearing his comeback to the ring.


Fury has the likes of Joshua and Deontay Wilder in his sights and is eager to return to the top of the heavyweight game once again.

He said: "[Trainer] Brendan Ingle once said, it's easy to beat Tyson Fury, very, very easy. Nail him to the canvas, because if you can't do that I'm going to eat you up, eat you all up.

“I opened the division up for all these heavyweights to have world titles. Joshua has been doing a good job of polishing my belts, keeping them nice and warm.

“Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, whoever else, I'm coming for you”

“I could probably fight this weekend. It's been a long time coming. I've been out a long time, two-and-a-half years.

"My ambition is to get in the ring again and get under those lights. I told them recently I want to get some baby oil on, shining, glistening, looking the part.

"Lifting a few weights now. I used to call Joshua a bodybuilder, but I'm starting to look like a bodybuilder now. Taking my protein shakes, getting to bed early and dreaming about smashing people's faces in.”

Wilder defended his WBC belt at the weekend, claiming a hard-fought victory over Cuban’s Luis Ortiz.

Fury is eyeing a blockbuster bout against Joshua in the future but he would welcome a meeting with brash American Wilder too.

He said: “He's made for me. Whatever happens in his career, whether he gets knocked out in his next fight, I want to fight him, because we've got unfinished business.

"When I get in the ring, I'll really give him a good hiding. He's a good puncher and he has got a puncher's chance all the way through until the end of the fight.

“But I believe I've got the best boxing skills in the division, and I'll give him a boxing lesson, and then I'll stop him, all 15 stone of him."

Honestly that kid had some good points about the WBC title in the HW division.. got a little carried away about wilder, but at the some time the way these titles splintered out after the Klitschkos although all 3 guys…
