‘He’s the best to do it’ – Anthony Joshua trolls Tyson Fury over fight record after rival announces retirement
ANTHONY JOSHUA has trolled rival Tyson Fury over his fight record after the WBC world heavyweight champion announced his retirement.
The former WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO champ is preparing for a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk having lost to the Ukrainian last year.
And while he prepares to face Usyk, Joshua has decided to antagonise another rival in Fury.
Joshua responded to a fan who mocked Fury’s plans to retire after his April 23 fight with Dillian Whyte.
The fan said: “Tyson Fury says he’s hanging up as the best to do it with a resume of [Derek] Chisora, [Wladimir] Klitschko, [Otto] Wallin and [Deontay] Wilder three times.”
Joshua quoted the tweet and quipped: “He is the best to do it I can’t disagree.”
A date for Joshua’s fight with Usyk is yet to be decided, with the heavyweight champion back in his home country.
Usyk returned to Ukraine to take up arms and fight off the Russian invasion.
In the meantime, Joshua is open to a rematch with Fury’s best pal Joseph Parker.
New Zealander Parker, 30, was beaten by AJ in 2018, and has already volunteered to replace Usyk.
Joshua told Behind The Gloves: “Me personally? I’ll fight no problem. I’ll fight whatever, no problem.”
