As is often the case with boxers, two likely rivals have started generating buzz for an upcoming fight by letting their aggression spill out online.
The 29-year-old Anthony Joshua is already keen to pick out his next big opponent after winning his most recent fight against Carlos Takam in Cardiff. There have been reports that he is keen to fight Tyson Fury in 2018, putting all three of Anthony Joshua’s world titles up for grabs if that’s the case. There have even been confirmations that Anthony Joshua’s promoter has been in contact with Tyson Fury to set the fight up, making a Fury vs Joshua fight look increasingly certain.
And now, as if to really set it in stone, the two have started bickering online, with Joshua firing one hell of a shot across Fury’s bow.
Tyson Fury, who has courted significant controversy throughout his career because of his homophobic views, has recently appeared with a few extra pounds of fat.
But it’s also not at all unusual for boxers to exhibit extreme weight gain and loss in between major fights. So while it’s easy to look at Tyson and cringe at his chubby appearance, it’s very possible that he’ll lose it quickly and be ready to face up to Anthony Joshua in 2018.
Which is going to make for one hell of an interesting fight!
